Mally Effortless Airbrush Highlighter & Blush Duo With Brush: Now, I’m not trying to play favorites here, but this product takes the cake. By cake I mean, this highlighter needs an award! The reflective mineral in this product looks excellent in photos and gives the face a natural appearance if you feel you’ve packed on too much product. Brush applies smooth for even application.

How I Helped My Skin In Less Than 4 Months

UPDATED PHOTO BELOW

This portrait may come as a huge surprise to the people who personally know me. As a makeup artist, I personally consider it is so crucial to have flawless skin; the truth is, that’s not always possible. I’ve made some severe decisions and my final step was Accutane (which can cause depression, seizures, and cracking of the skin.) I was willing to take those risks. With a ton of research and an angel with a wealth of information on products, I was truly saved.

1. Cut dairy, NOW!

a. Milk/Cheese/Coffee Creamers contains components related to the hormone testosterone that may stimulate oil glands in the skin, setting the stage for acne.
b. Try using the alternative. Non Dairy Creamers, Almond Milk, Silk Milk, etc. Trust me, this made all the difference in the world.

2. Drink like a fish.

a. Water that is… water removes all impurities and toxins in the body. It helps flush out lingering pollutants in the system and helps clear the face and body.

3. Eat Clean.

a. If it’s frozen, microwavable, or pre packaged. You may want to consider the alternative. Keep in mind, this is not for everyone, but I was desperate and willing to try anything.

4. My Main Savior For My Acne.

a. Rodan + Fields, if you have never heard of it, you need to get used to this name… I live, sleep and breathe this product. After only 3 weeks I saw major results.  Unblemish does exactly what the name says. It has now been 4 months and I’m not perfect but I see the forest through the trees. The product keeps working and working. I’ve been recommend this product to all of brides as well who want a clear complexion for the most important day of their lives.

Here are a few photos to show my progress.

Day One: First Day on the Unblemish Program.

Photo 2: First Month on Unblemish. As you can do the redness and inflamation reduced by 50%.

Lip are something that needs to be healthy, plump, and colored. People always notice your lips, because they look at them while you are talking.  Overdue time and the harsh effects of the environment end up doing some damage to your lips. With these effects your natural smooth and defined lips become thin, crack and not as rosy. Now its time to get that back!
