Clear skin… Something we all want but seems almost unrealistic to actually have. Over my years trying out beauty products, one thing I have noticed is how acne has seemed to become more out of control across a wide variety of both kids, teens and adults and most products available in the market don’t help to clear anyone’s skin.
Acne doesn’t care how old you are, if you are rich or poor, or what skin color you have. More people have it then don’t and the only thing everyone with acne has in common is the insecurities and self consciousness it can cause.
I noticed my skin starting to get bad when I was in my teenage and constantly drowning my skin in makeup. Naturally I thought that was the issue and tried every skin care product the store carried trying to clear up my mess of a face at the time, meanwhile my insecurities about my skin grew. It was hard enough being 18 trying to discover my new adulthood, I didn’t need acne! Well I had it and it wasn’t the makeup.
months after months have gone by but nothing was working, to be honest and to much surprise I don’t wear that much makeup on my face.
“But Sushmita your skin always looks perfect” Right! I know! Compared to most I don’t even know what acne is lets be real. I could have it much worse and complaining about what I do have from time to time between perfect skin to horrible breakouts I want to burn with fire, I really don’t have the right to complain. Although I do struggle with mild acne that makes me self conscious and constantly searching for the magical products that will fix my skin and give me real life photo shopped looking epidermis.
I want to start out by saying this….
As a well known blogger and social media person I have to keep up with a lot. With a crazy work schedule, as a Student and blogger and everything in between, my life is anything but calm.
I have spent so much money, and thrown so much money away on over the counter, drug store and order able acne products. None of them work and I either get worse skin problems, dry skin, or nothing happens. I am done with the normal routine and am looking forward to these simple products and a skin care change by taking charge from the inside out!
Follow my journey and join in with me!!
This is an honest blog of my journey to clearer skin featuring some great products that I will be using and sharing with you in hopes that we can all achieve clearer skin together.
Here Is To Healthy Bodies & Better Skin!
Remember, acne is not something to be ashamed of. Clear skin in today’s world is hard for all of us to have. Lets take deep breaths and figure it out together!
My Skin Care Products-
Seba med soap or Johnson’s baby soap. This two soaps are amazing cleanser and better than any face wash comes in tunes.
￼I use “Forest essentials hand pounded organic fruit scrub ” for my face. Just a little bit and it does my skin wonders. It has fruit goodness in it which is also known to help clear and soothe acne. This scrub is all natural with zero harsh chemicals.
Note: never scrub ur face skin more then 1 time in 15 days. Teenagers should never use scrubs.
￼Fab India tea tree toner is a very sensitive toner to help moisturize and tone skin without drying out. I use this before my moisturizers. It helps ton my skin and also keep it from drying out which I struggle with in most toners.
￼I use biotic night cream. It’s the best part of my skin care. I never miss it in the night as it helps to develop new skin cells over the night. It is very important when it comes to nourishing and hydrating your skin. The best part is it works while you’re sound asleep.
￼I’ve been using Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense face lotion for several years. For a long time it was the only one that helped my skin. Lately all it does is dry my skin out when used all over. So, this has become a spot treatments for breakouts only. It works great and can be picked up at most drugstores.

*Water & Nutrition
So I love carbonation! Way more than I should and I take in more colas, sodas, and pops than I should. Water and I need to become better friends and I will be drinking as much water a day as I can which is also a huge factor in better skin. I will also be focusing on making and packing healthy lunches for work to include that in on my new routine to help my skin!
Acne is hard, and it really takes a toll on your self confidence. Minor to sever, those who struggle with acne of any kind know its very draining. I hope my blog helps at least some people and my skin care routine can become others as well. Here is to staying calm, being healthy and trying till we find what works!
Stay Strong and know that you are beautiful and I love the skin you are in!
