Tea tree oil

Tea tree oil has anti-viral and anti-fungal properties meaning they can aid a variety of skincare issues. Use it on skin to help with excess oil that clog pores and cause blemishes. I find it especially useful on blemishes. It works like benzyl peroxide without over drying the skin. You may use it for skin conditions like ringworm or tinea versi color also known as sun spots. You can buy tea tree oil in health stores and some drug stores. I found mine in CVS. Remember to be cautious with anything you use topically. Be curious and do your research.

Product review: cleansing oil by Amorepacific

I got to try the treatment cleansing oil by Amorepacfic. I'm a fan of their facial mist and now I'm a fan of this. It's for use on eyes and face. On the bottle it says it removes impurities, and I must day it absolutely does. I have blackheads on my nose and there aren't a lot of products out there that do what they say. This cleansing oil removed the congestion on my nose so effortlessly. To use this oil start with a dry face. Massage the oil into the skin, and around eyes. Once your face is saturated with  the oil, you can now rinse with water. It left my skin soft, clean, and all my makeup came off. I recommend this cleanser for anyone really. It will especially benefit people who want to cleanse, unclog, and soften their skin in a gentle way. 

Top five pore clogging ingredients

There are so much unnecessary things in our skincare products. A lot of products will often say "non-comedogenic". This means it will not clog your pores, or at least they want you to believe so. These 5 ingredients listed below have a high chance of clogging your pores and causing blemishes. I hate clogged pores, also known as congestion, acne, pimples, comedones, whiteheads, blackheads, whatever it is. I don't want any of it on my skin. Remember you have to understand your skin in order to know what works and what doesn't. Everyone has different skin so be patient and learn your skin. Don't be afraid to do your own research and seek the input of knowledgable people.
