What’s up with chickpea flour & acne?
Today we are getting DEEP with Drunk Elephant’s Babyfacial & it’s star ingredient chickpea flour. Now...you might be thinking “Why chickpea flour? Why is chickpea flour listed right on the front of this bottle?” & I am here to TELL YOU about it. Buckle up. We have a story time! I have sensitive, acne-prone skin so I was really excited to use babyfacial—in fact, so excited that I used to use it every single week for months...I ultimately destroyed my skin barrier by overusing acids and had to rebuild it over time, but I still like using babyfacial every month or two and chickpea flour is one of the reasons why. So let’s get into it: WHAT IS CHICKPEA FLOUR? Chickpea flour is also known as “besan.” It’s actually usually used for cleansing purposes. Besan has anti-inflammatory properties, can stop excess sebum production, and has ZINC in it which can kill infections/bacteria that cause acne. WHAT! I think mentioning chickpea flour makes total sense for Drunk Elephant since it’s a chemical exfoliating mask—the chickpea flour is present to help soothe any irritation the mask may bring. I do have to be completely honest with you guys and say that I don’t believe the chickpea flour is a savior in this formula. Even when I use this as a flash mask I almost always experience a burning sensation after 5 minutes so I usually have to use it as a 2-3 minute mask. I still really enjoy it otherwise though! It is very powerful, with a high concentration in acids. I believe chickpea flour or “besan” is a great ingredient and I look for it now in beauty products because of Babyfacial. Due to my experiences with Babyfacial I must rate it 4/5 stars.

8 Do’s and Don’ts for Hormonal Acne
☀️I have combo skin that is sensitive and I get regular hormonal acne which makes keeping my skin fully clear very difficult but I’ve gotten a lot better at it over time so wanted to share some tips! 💕Do: 1. Wash your face daily by double cleansing. I like to wash my face with a water-based cleanser in the morning personally and then at night I’ll use a cleansing balm and then a water-based cleanser. This is called double cleansing and that extra step is important at night, especially if you were wearing makeup and sunscreen during the day (hopefully SPF!). You can also find a cleanser with Salicylic Acid in it to treat breakouts like the one from Paula’s Choice or CeraVe. 2. Wear sunscreen SPF 30 or higher Sunscreen daily helps my skin so much with redness and of course with acne. This is one of the most important things you can do for your skin! Do it do it do it! 3. Use clay masks Once or twice a week I will use my pink clay mask by Sand & Sky to pull out impurities from my skin. I find this mask helps with painful acne and reducing redness. It increases healing time from my experience too. This is the best one I’ve found and I will repurchase over and over again. 4. Use Vitamin C (with SPF during the day) Vitamin C helps me a TON with acne scars. You know after a big breakout how you’ll have redness? This ingredient helps me with that and fights free radicals during the day which is good too! Always pair it with sunscreen. I like to use this during the day and a retinol to increase cell turnover at night. Generally, the rule of thumb is to not mix the two! 5. Use a retinol This product increase cell turnover which for me helps heal acne faster and also seems to prevent big breakouts and even small ones from happening as frequently. I use A-Passioni by Drunk Elephant currently. It’s strong so like any product, patch test on your hand to see if your skin gets along with it. Then slowly add to your routine with a richer moisturizer. There are many options out there. I did experience peeling and purging when I first started and that purging where your skin breaks out from the product at first can last a few weeks but is so so worth it in the end. 🙈Don’t: 1. Do NOT use products with coconut oil. This isn’t true for everyone but for me and a bunch of skincare lovers I know, products with coconut oil make us breakout consistently. Yes, it can be hydrating but keep it to the body rather than your face. 2. Do NOT use products with fragrance! This isn’t true for everyone but for some people fragrance is extremely irritating for the skin. I think if you can avoid it, which you can, then definitely do. CeraVe has a lot of great and affordable products that fit this category. 3. Do NOT sleep in your make-up. I know. It can happen. But for my skin, I find I can breakout throughout just the course of the day from wearing make-up. I hope this helps! SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask

Face Masks for Acne
The Indian Healing Clay mask if a natural mask that has no added ingredients, no parabens, and no chemicals. It is used to help draw out toxins from the skin and help eliminate acne. It also claims to help smooth and soften skin and help clear pores. This clay mask is specifically targeted towards those who have acne-prone skin. This product comes in an average sized container. It is super powdery and grainy. The container instructs you to actually mix this clay mask with apple cider vinegar or water if you have sensitive skin. So I have had this mask for a few years now. This mask is something I resort to if I’m having very bad breakouts. I decided to try this product out back when it was super popular. When I first tried this mask, I would only mix in apple cider vinegar with the clay mask; however, I have slowly started to reduce the amount of apple cider vinegar I use on my face and have started substituting it with water. I also like to add a little bit of turmeric into the mixture to help brighten my skin! Once you apply this mask on your face you should feel a heating sensation, as well as your skin starting to tighten. I found this clay mask to be super effective; however, it is very drying! As someone who has combination skin, the more you leave the mask the dry on the face, the more dry your face becomes afterwards. So if you do decide to use this mask, I recommend moisturizing after removing it! I would recommend this product to those who are just starting off using skincare. In my opinion, this is a fun yet effective face mask! I also recommend adding things into your mixture to help enhance the effects. This face mask retails for about $12.99 on Amazon and $7.99 at Target!

Let’s talk face masks for acne
The Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask is marketed as a pore-refining mask with super-powered Australian botanicals. It's meant to be a solution for pores, blemishes & acne, and oiliness. The texture here is similar to your usual clay mask, but what i love about this particular one is how smooth it is and non-drying it is on the skin. Definitely one of my favorite clay mask textures for sure. I decided to try this mask around a month ago since I've recently struggled with acne here and there. I had heard this mask in particular was great for clearing up skin blemishes and reducing acne flair-ups. Plus the before and after photo on their websites are incredible! In terms of my experience, I REALLY like this mask and I feel it is the best mask I've tried that helps with blemishes and preventing acne. It's really one of the few face masks that truly does what it says it does. As mentioned, I also really love how this mask doesn't dry out my already dry skin! Overall, if i put this on when i feel a breakout coming on, it's definitely helps my blemishes fade quickly and redness always goes down fast. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone! Like i said, it does what it says it does and is one of the few products I own that truly helps me when I'm battling a breakout. It sells for $50 which I'd say is worth it since it's an effective product with great ingredients. I would rate this product 5/5. SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask

Face Mask for Acne/Sensitive Skin
The Cicapair Calming Mask is marketed as a sheet mask for acne/sensitive skin. It targets irritation, dryness, and red patches on acne prone, sensitive skin. The texture is that of a regular face mask, it’s thick and full of moisture. Oh & it smells amazing! I just recently started using it and from the first try I felt it’s soothing effects. It’s extremely hydrating and reduced my redness after I took it off. It’s a great way to start your daytime or night time routine! I recommend this product to anyone with dry, sensitive skin and also people with acne or redness left from acne scars. The only disappointing part of this product is the price. It retails at $34 for a pack of 5 sheet masks so there might be more long lasting masks out there. But overall it’s an amazing product to use once a week if you are able to buy it constantly! 🌿🌿 The tag for this specific product isn’t available but I give this a 5 stars!
