Breathe in Breathe out....Woosah

I feel like I've been on another planet for a bit. I've been taking care of business and making sure everything is line so my semester can start smoothly. I'm tired and I really wish I could have a mini-vacation before I go back to school...hmm thats sooo not going to happen. The closest thing to that will be maybe going home for my bestie's b-day then a trip w/ my old roomies to U of I South in September.

My face is still breaking out and I'm really starting to believe it started with my frequent cowash sessions. I have slowed down on them and up'd my face regime but the break outs haven't ceased yet. I first used
with warm water. I recently used the CVS brand of apricot scrub that left my face very irritated and I ended up breaking out on my cheeks too. I've heard really good things about Cetaphil from ppl w/ sensitive skin like me so I had to give it a shot. Next, I finally tried Tania's baking soda scrub last night. If you try I will have to warn made my face burn like hell. Lastly, I used my ACV as my toner as normal. This morning my face looked soo much better. I don't know if it was the Cetaphil or the baking soda that did the trick. Either way I'm greatful.

In my hair news, I'm going back into protective season. I started protective styles last year in September and my hair loved me for it. Although, this time I will be using heat occasionally becuz I admit I occasionally miss the days when my hair was wrapped.

I love the Cetaphil cleansing bar. My face has been going through some things too. Lots of water, bentonite clay, and exfoliating with sugar & lemon juice have helped.

My adult acne flairs up something serious when I use coconut oil, shea butter and other butters. I wonder if it's one of your hair products causing the flair ups.

Intially I thought it was from me cowashing then leaving the wet hair lay on my face, but I've completely stopped that. I heard somewhere that I could put shea butter on my face after I wash it...I guess I better stop that lol. Other than that no products touch my face...idk adult acne is not hott at all.
