As you cozy up for bed tonight I know you take your pillow and smoosh it on all around your face and bed during the night. We’re all tossing and turning and living in our bed more. Right?
But did you know your pillow case can make your skin look bad?
Is your skin is acting up?
It may not just be your “maskne” from wearing a face mask. It may not be a flair up of acne and dehydrated flaky skin. It probably is your dirty or not so fresh pillowcase. Smell your pillowcase. Check out the sheets as well. If it smells funky and looks dirty. Time to throw it in the wash and start fresh!
It is important to change your pillow cases. And often! I change my pillow case two times a week. And in the summer I might change it three times a week. Doing this will make a difference in your complexion.
Get into the habit and enjoy having healthier looking prettier skin.
Here’s toSweet dreams and healthy looking skin,Beautiful!
Just found out about this product and wanted to share with you. The ZitMit by Microdermamitt is designed to treat and help prevent acne and breakouts.It is a mit is a thin soft abrasive cloth you slip your hand into that cleans the skin gently and efficiently.
The magical part is NO cleanser,no CHEMICALS,no zit cream or product at all. Simply dip into tap water use on a clean face on the area that has started to get a blemish or you may use on the entire face (not the eye area of course).It removes tired dull winter skin and will help your other beauty products penetrate and work better. Your makeup will glide on like butter on a slice of bread.
This cleansing mitt increases cell turnover and calms down the irritated slightly blemished skin.And it does it naturally.
It is a problem for many people.One of the main things for sure is chocolate and greasy foods don’t always cause acne nor make it worse. Keeping your face and hands clean. Keeping your hands off your face IS important! Change your pillowcase often.
My dermatologist warns a few zits are not acne! Besides genetics here are some other reasons you may develop acne.
Hormones,stress,bacteria,lack of sleep,your diet,food allergies,poor cell turnover,cosmetic related allergies and an over active sebaceous gland can cause acne flair ups.
D.I.Y Skin Toner for Blemished Skin

*This recipe is from a client of mine who has acne and swears by this.I tried it… it feels refreshing! If you are allergic to any of the above please do not try this recipe.

ALL THIS MONTH…I am sharing easy to understand ways to take care of your skin. I am trying to keep it simple for you the girl or guy next door.
Plastic surgery isn’t always the answer if you aren’t feeling very pretty. Retinol (Retin A) is a topical product that is a form of vitamin A. It is used for anti-aging,acne and hyperpigmentation. This product comes from a prescription from your doctor and also found in many skin care products today. A little goes a long way. It helps to slough off dead skin cells at a normal rate. Sometimes our cells are sluggish and the skin cells do not shed like they should. This will cause clogging of pores or splotches of dry patches on the skin. While using it can make your skin red and flaky and is a strong prescription. Many people find great results from it for wrinkles,sun spots and issues with severe acne.
In face and body creams Retinol is added and mixed with other ingredients to make your skin look better and may even look younger too. Shedding skin cells and skin cell turnover that’s what it’s all about for baby fresh new skin.
