Dealing with acne and breaking out.

As someone who still struggles with breaking out, I know what it’s like wanting to pick at them, and just being irritated and wishing you could rip your skin off and starting fresh. I know it’s hard and I know that sometimes it’s harder than others but remember your skin regenerates every 27 days so it’s really up to how well you take care of and manage your skin.

Some things can be out of your control but here’s what YOU can do to really help your body be it pimples on your face, body from your arms, back, butt, etc, whatever and wherever it may be:

  1. You are what you eat.
    • I know people say this a lot but diet really plays a big role in your wellbeing. You might eat whatever you want and if you’re blessed with good metabolism, not have anything stick to you BUT just because you don’t gain weight doesn’t mean you should keep eating junk all the time.
    • Fill your body with things high in nutrients and vitamins so lots of fruits and veggies but as well as just a balanced diet in general.

I’ve included a mix of guilty drinks as well as some healthier options and it really just is about throwing it all into a blender and blending.

How to reduce the appearance of under eye bags.

They’re totally harmless and not that hard to take care of.
