Taking Things Lightly and Oily

Work has been horrible for the past few weeks that I decided to take things lightly.  The stress has caused me to breakout that’s why I decided to change my skincare routine. Ok…i’ll talk about my skin care routine for a change.

I guess this is  my third year being a dealer of human heart nature. I’m sharing the link to their website (http://www.humanheartnature.com/) and choose your location wherever you may be in the world.  For the first time, I tried to shift from oil-free cleansing to oil cleansing. I did some major research before trying it out but to be safe, I stuck with Human Heart Nature Sunflower Cleansing Oil which I have been promoting to my friends and coworkers.  A couple of friends have already bought their bottles from me  but it is only now that I have to try it myself.

I was almost tempted to buy something from the The Face Shop but reading the ingredients which specified Mineral Oil as the main ingredient and having a price that was twice that of human nature,  I really have to turn away from it.  It has been three days since I used  this cleansing oil. The instruction reads that after using, I have to follow up with another facial wash but researching for oil cleansing routine over the internet, it seems it is much preferable to use it alone then just wipe it off with a warm washcloth and you are good to go.

I always had the misconception that oils will just make my skin more oily but after three days of oil cleansing, I’ve noticed that my skin seems more balanced and the breakouts from the past week are slowly drying up, though there are some new zits starting to flare out.  I still have to see after a few weeks if the “oil cleansing method” will balance things out for me because honestly, it’s far more convenient. I have temporarily stopped using my balancing facial wash and balancing toner also from human heart nature so from three steps skincare, I am currently at two-steps.  I still use my E’thym Collagen Water Moisture Lotion from the The Face Shop.  Praying hard that The Face Shop is truthful in promoting that their E’thym Skin Care line is mineral oil free, paraben free, benzonephenone free, colorant free, triethanolmanine free—hopefully.  I’m sure it is not fragrance free because it just smells great!

Slowly moving into my mid-thirties, I had become more OC about skincare. Let’s just wait and see, hope things will improve.

Something about verbena

Something about verbena

I don’t even notice that most of my scent is verbena. Sometimes as we go along life, we don’t notice that we make choices, and once we like it we become hardwired to move towards that choice. I am already getting frustrated about my qualification, there were some administrative glitches along the way that going back to research seemed like a good idea.
