What are some natural remedies for a flawless skin that actually work?
The Boy Method.
I should really patent this system, because it has actually worked a miracle on my skin in the past few months.
When I was little, I hated my freckles. So one day, using that signature 10-year-old logic, I decided to scrub them off. Naturally, I ruined my skin and had to go to the hospital. While my skin was healing my doctor gave me a special soap to keep the wounds clean. That was my first experience with skincare products and I have used them daily since.
My regimen grew and grew until I was using approximately nine products daily. I was desperate for clear, no-foundation skin that looked like porcelain with freckles. I didn’t understand why it was so hard for me to achieve it. I kept adding new products, switching up my system, and doing everything I possibly could. I was spending hundreds of dollars on expensive treatments to clear it up.
Then, a few months ago, I came across a post with this picture:
And I got to thinking…
Why is this? What makes guys have great skin with no effort and girls go through hell and still have acne?
I came to two conclusions.
- Stressing about skin causes stress pimples. It’s the cycle of life.
So I just… cut it all off.
Every day since I was ten years old, I have used skincare products and makeup.
But for the past month and a half, I have made a serious change in my lifestyle.
(Over fifty shades of eyeshadow, two eyeliners, two mascaras, eight lipsticks, one lip liner, three foundations, one highlighter, one concealer.)
(Powder foundation, concealer, mascara)
(Seven cleansers, three makeup removers, two variants of witch hazel, four moisturizers, three exfoliates, six toners, five masks, four specialty products)
(Natural makeup remover, Natural multipurpose bar soap)
Today’s skin (four months later):
The boy method. It works.
