First of all, thank you to everyone who linked up yesterday for Random Wednesday. You ladies rocked my riding boots off! After reading all the posts, I found a common thread with 90% of us bloggers. One word: Target. Does that surprise you? Not me in the slightest.
I did get one comment that may just change my life, well at least the life of my skin. The sad thing is that she is a "no-reply blogger" and I couldn't email her back. So, Courtney, if you are reading today, thank you, thank you, thank you! So, here is what she said:
"My sister and I have had bad acne since our teen years--we're now in our 30s and still deal with it. Our faces have been clear for a few months now thanks to oil cleansing. Sounds counter-intuitive, but I swear it works. my face/skin has never looked better. Google "oil cleansing" or search for it on Pinterest. There's lots of info out there. We've spent hundreds on washes, scrubs, accutane, etc and nothing has worked like oil you can buy from the health food store!"
So, I did Google it and searched on Pinterest and hot damn, this method seems to be legit. Long story short, you clean your face with extra virgin olive oil and castro oil. People swear by and say that it has done wonders for their complexion. So, guess what I am going out to purchase today? Yep, you guessed it, lots of oils. I will keep everyone posted on how it works for my face. Have any of you heard of the "oil cleansing" method?
In other acne related news, I am NOT happy to report that we ate Mexican food last night and I avoided taking even one little dip into the queso. Nope, not even a smidgen of a taste. It was brutal and torture, but I am shooting for a 100% commitment of being dairy free for 2 months. We shall see if it makes a difference in my skin.
On a completely unrelated note, I now have a favorite child. No, not my actual children, but a clothes child. This sweater has become my numero uno. You are going to be shocked to the heavens to find out where it came from. I got it from Target! I know, complete disbelief. This little number is perfect with leggings because it covers up the booty-boot, but isn't too frumpy. I kinda felt like I was in my PJs all day. PJs with a scarf wrapped around my neck.
And, let's not forget about the RocksBox giveaway going on. Who wants free jewelry for a year? Yep, don't we all? Well, you can't win if you don't enter. So, click here or on the image below.
