All throughout my middle school years and in some of my high school years, I was extremely blessed to have relatively clear skin. I seriously took advantage of it now that I think about it. Part of the reason was because I didn’t wear a lot of make-up during that time. In fact, the only times I wore any sort of make-up was for extravagant reasons (i.e. high school dances, quinces, sweet sixteen’s, etc.)
However recently, it seems like I’m getting the tail end of bad breakout after another. Even when I don’t wear make-up and rinse my face off morning and night. At first, I was very thrown off by it because the products I used to use didn’t work for me anymore, and anything I thought would help, didn’t.
Now I’ve realized that part of the reason I ended up having such bad breakouts on my face was because I was stressed with school and my jobs. Add on anxiety to top it off, and my face was a warzone. Life has calmed down a bit but I still suffer from my occasional splatter of red spots on my face.
And with ACL coming up, I know my face is going to have a hard time that weekend. (Truth be told, my poor face will probably have a hard time throughout October). So knowing my face and how my skin reacts to oils, stress, dirt and anything else, I have been prepping my face and decided to share with y’all how I am doing it.
I don’t’ use all of these at once before I get comments saying I’m making my skin worse. These are some of the products I am using to help my face though! No matter how crazy and much my skin will hate me after ACL, I am super excited for the festival because I will get to hang with my best friends for an entire weekend in one of our favorite cities.
What about y’all? What are some of your must-haves when battling acne or prepping your face for a long weekend? Leave some suggestions down in the comments or let me know what y’all think of the products I use!
Until next time lovelies,
