Apple cider vinegar: 2 week check-in
I started my mornings with a cup of warm water, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and a splash of lemon juice. Jennifer Aniston says that this is the secret to aging gracefully and maintaining a healthy metabolism. ACV is also noted to help with bacterial and fungal acne, as well as brighten complexion. There are so many documented properties of the ACV cleanse (some researched and some a matter of opinion.) But here are the changes I saw: ￼￼￼less puffiness ￼￼￼improved skin brightness ￼￼￼better skin texture ￼￼￼more energy ￼￼￼my gut felt healthier *I did not see as much change in my acne as I’d hoped, but I was also on my period the past week, and consumed a more sugary diet :( I really want to continue this process to see what the longer term benefits provide for me and my body. Also it was so refreshing to replace my cup of morning coffee for a cup of ACV. I felt refreshed and healthy.. and the ACV didn’t hit my gut as hard as my acidic morning coffee usually does. If you plan on doing this yourself, I recommend keeping the ACV to water ratio low, and not consuming more than 2 tablespoons of ACV, as the acidity could burn your oesophagus. ACV has acetic acid, which neutralizes the PH of your gut. But you definitely want to water that stuff down. (Also it’s super gross straight up, so why torture yourself?) All in all, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a homeopathic method of improving your overall skin health. Let me know if you end up trying this, and how it works for you!
Good for large, ignorant pimples!
MARIO BADESCU - Plastic Bottle Drying Lotion This product is an acne fighting product aimed for tackling those annoying, large, painful under the skin pimples and regular acne. For me, I specifically asked for it for Christmas because I get the large, under the skin ones every so often and needed something other than a pimple sticker. The texture is strange to describe; there are two layers. The first layer is clear and the second is a pink sediment. When you dip your Q-Tip into the product and apply it, it’s very cool and feels pretty refreshing. As you can tell in the video, the result is a nice mix of clear and pink sediment. Overall, I’ve used this just twice since getting it, but I do like it. The pink sediment eventually dries into a light pink layer on your skin. It didn’t break me out and it didn’t cause the pimples to get larger. I feel like it moreso prevented the pimple from getting any larger. The only thing I dislike about this product is the heavy alcohol scent it comes with, but you’ll have to overlook it. All in all, I do recommend this product to those with general acne issues or large, under the skin pimples like me. Just make sure you patch test the product before fully applying it. It’s definitely a quick solution to persistent pimples and worth its $17 price tag if it’s an issue you wish to work on clearing up.

Get rid of blackhead with me👀
CNP LABARATORY Anti Pore Blackhead 2 step Clear Kit//Brand from CNP Laboratory. Pack Size - 10 pairs I got this from Amazon! Most nose kits I saw and tried from other brands have 3 steps, so I was very curious about the 2 steps. So what’s the difference? The first step is a damp nose patch which stays on for about 15 minutes to prepare the skin. On the back there is only Korean so I don’t know what other information is provided. The second step is a nose patch with essence which you keep on for 5 minutes. The essence absorbed well and left my skin refreshed and clean. There was no redness at all. So this set comes without a nose strip which is very nice, because I feel like it is gentler than sets with a nose strip. The effect is just as satisfying though! My pores looked clear right after using the kit and also the next morning. The fragrance of the first step stings in the nose and is not exactly pleasant, but it faded after a few minutes. Overall a very effective and time efficient kit!
