It's been 6 months since the skincare experiment I did in an effort to make my skin a tad closer to flawless, so now I'm here to share with you my experience:
What I did was cleansing my face with the Vitamin E soap and massaging my skin with the sponge disc, both twice a day.
Week 1: the results were just amazing! My skin was blemish-free and as smooth as a baby's bottom, I thought I had hit Holy Grail material in a dirt cheap price tag!
Week 2,3: my skintone was getting brighter. I noticed my cheeks looked healthy- flushed but in a natural way.
Week 4: this is when things started to go bad...
In short, I was over-exfoliating my skin and let me tell you, it's a very thin line between gentle and rough exfoliation... I was left with a horribly dry layer of skin that left me no choice but to borrow my sister's 8-hour cream, close my nose to endure its dreadful scent and slap it all over my face. Eventually, this top film of dry skin peeled off- bless you, Elizabeth Arden!
So after my skin disaster, my advice is this:
never go too hard on your skin. It's always better to start with a mild exfoliant and gradually progress to a more thorough cleanser. Always listen to your skin and act accordingly.
But enough with the patronising talk...
Do you use any tools to exfoliate your skin?
