While I was in skincare school, I was diagnosed with Tuberous Sclerosis, and I found out after seeing a dermatologist for an unknown skin condition.
The TS caused these angiofibromas all across my cheeks and above my eyebrows. They looked like acne, and it was a serious confidence killer for me. So I was always trying new things.
Luckily, after my daughter was born, the angiofibromas cleared up. There's no medical research showing this has ever happened before, which leads us to think I was possibly misdiagnosed. But I still had acne, so my search continued.
I've tried it all!
And finally, I found it. My skin care "Holy Trinity".
I'm currently super into Lush, and can't get enough. My best friend recommended the AquaMarina cleanser and I haven't looked back since.
It looks funky, it's pink from calamine powder (yes like the mosquito bite lotion!) and there's flecks and pieces of seaweed inside.
I follow Aqua up with another Lush product, Mask of Magnaminty. It's a minty green mask with peppermint, kaolin clay, and aduki beans for a gentle scrub. It's packed with other ingredients that help deep clean and spot treat breakouts!
And the last is a new discovery for me. I was noticing that as great as the AquaMarina was at cleaning my skin, it wasn't great at taking off my full face of makeup. And I really don't enjoy those makeup removing towelettes. I've seen Micellar water all over social media lately as a great makeup remover and skin cleanser so I decided to give it a try.
I got mine at Target, and it's by the Simple brand, so I know only necessary ingredients are inside! And it's so simple, just pour some on a cotton round and wipe! Eye makeup comes off in a snap! And I wear some pretty difficult mascara. Not a problem for this stuff.
So I start with the Micellar water, wash with the AquaMarina
And guys. I'm serious. My skin has never looked better!
