Avoid makeup at all costs.
I know what you're thinking. "What about my blemishes?" "What about my freckles?" "How can I cover up my uneven tones?"
My answer to all those questions is simply "Don't you dare!"
The more makeup and products you use to cover up your so-called beauty flaws is most likely doing you more harm than good. Instead of covering up, work on healing the ones that are a real issue and embracing the ones that are naturally you.
Freckles become beauty marks. Uneven skin tones can be healed by applying things like shea butter and cocoa butter, which are very good for the skin overall.
To rid acne, wash the face with a mild soap, like Dove Sensitive Skin. Pat dry and apply diluted tea tree oil. I like a mix with a base of olive oil (about 2 ounces) and 10 drops of pure tea tree oil. Do this twice per day to clear up the acne. This has been my regimen since I first broke out with acne badly. It rid me of the issue and as long as I keep with that regimen daily, it keeps the acne away. Tea tree oil and olive oil is good for the skin in general.
Instead of using things that work against your beauty or cover up your natural beauty, go with natural products that maintain and enhance it.
Don't cover it up! Refresh it!
