Today I’m reviewing my favorite moisturizer Lotus Herbals skin whitening and brightening whiteglow micro-emulsion. (Sorry the post is a day late!) I have oily acne prone skin and generally use oil-free moisturizers but the attractive packaging and marketing of the whiteglow range along with the good reviews making rounds on the blogosphere compelled me to try out this product.
Here’s taking a little break from the makeup posts and sharing some information about the chemical Benzoyl Peroxide that I found recently. Benzoyl Peroxide is a chemical used in most anti-acne products in small concentrations and is generally found to be an effective cure for acne. I sometimes use a Benzoyl Peroxide cream for spot treatment of breakouts and the product info of Dermalogica Concealing Spot treatment(which does NOT contain Benzoyl Peroxide) piqued me as to why someone would NOT want to use Benzoyl Peroxide treatments to treat their acne.
Breakouts and pimples are the bane of every oily skinned beauty. Sometimes it could be a new product, excessive humidity/exposure to pollution and sometimes just irregular routine – but every once in a while, acne rears its ugly head and here are a few things that I personally do to supress breakouts –
*Please note- these tips are not for ‘prevention’ of breakouts, but for suppressing emerging/existing breakouts*
Switch to an anti-acne face wash. Recommendation – Neutrogena oil free acne wash. Typically these contain 1-2% salicylic acid. But do not wash your face too many times! Once in the morning, once before bed and 1-2 times in between when you come from outside is enough.
