It's taken me 36 years to figure this out.... just because a product is more money, does not mean it is better. For the past 4 years I have battled adult acne like you would not believe. I have been embarrassed by breakouts and have tried everything. I have spent endless money on expensive products which Clinique ladies and MAC artists have assured me will clear all up. Then I went to try all organic at ALBA and spent close to 40.00 for a months worth of product. I even tried proactive...... spent the 40 dollars there too.
And then this past month I did some research. Seems that most women my age do something fatal. We listen to those "makeup" experts who tell us to wash our face twice a day. That ends up doing two things: 1) making your face produce more oil because it drys everything out, 2) makes for more acne.
After researching drugstore options, I ran across an article by a dermatologist. They recommend Purpose. 5.99 for the bottle. Non-soap, no oil. Wash once a day. The Dr went on to say that it is important to exfoliate to clean all pores out. She recommended a 2.79 bottle of Queen Helene Mint Julip exfoliation product. So, for the past 2 weeks I have faithfully been using these products. I finish with a non-comegenic, oil free, moisturizer that I already had. And guess what? No more acne. And as a bonus all the red spots left behind from breakouts are fading too.
What does this have to do with practicing law, law school, opening a practice? We all know that if your face is a mess, you feel a mess. I no longer feel a mess in this area. I have a glowing, healthy look to my face. And I am ready to face any opposing counsel or judge when the time comes!
