Body Acne


Spring is in the air and that only means one thing: Summer is right around the corner. Time to get rid of the bulge and hit the shore. I can't wait! As ecstatic as I might sound about the summer time I also get really frustrated that time of the year. One reason is my pesky body acne problem. Its not as bad as it use to be I will be honest about that. I have been putting Jojoba Oil on my chest when I get out of the shower. I cannot stress any more how amazing jojoba oil is! However there are some spots left that are really embarrassing. I have some scars on my shoulders and upper arms also. They are just pigmented scars and I know that maybe some skin bleaching cream can get rid of them ,BUT I REFUSE to put any of those products on my skin. Part of this blog is for me to find natural and healthy ways to help people care for their skin. Nonetheless this is a learning experience and who knows I might have to resort to those creams, but only under desperate measures. Speaking of scars I found a natural skin brightener, but I am not going to write about it now. Soon I will do another review for my new Himalaya Products, FYI , they have been doing great!

hi, I've been using Dr. Hauschka products - expensive but works really well, and all natural. It has made a big difference in severity of outbreaks and limits dark pigment marks. Interesting site

I bought the Jojoba oil after your recommendation and I've been using it on my body and face to fade hyperpigmentation for about 3 weeks now. I can't tell yet if it's making a difference. I love it is a moisturizer because it keeps my skin soft and the oil production under control. However, how long did you have to wait until you noticed a significant improvement in the lightening of dark spots? Love your blog, btw.

Hey Teresa, well it took about a month to see the spot start to fade. However I started to breakout around that time of the month in the exact same places that I had the spots. The jojoba oil has been helping a lot with my oil problem. Whenever I feel like I put too much on I just wipe it off, I don't wash until I am going to bed after that because the oil is already cleaning my skin. I have been trying a new mask that I think will help you. I'll write about it soon!
