This Daily Routine Totally Cured My Acne-Prone Skin — Every Single Product Is From Amazon

Because sometimes the all-natural route just doesn't work.

This Daily Routine Totally Cured My Acne-Prone Skin — Every Single Product Is From Amazon

I used to break out all the time and be super self-conscience about it before I talked to my dermatologist about how to manage it. Because, for some, acne won't go away with all-natural minimalistic products.

Here are some tips I've learned, steps I've taken, and the products (all on Amazon) I use that have changed my skincare game completely. It may seem like a lot, but the results are worth the hassle - especially for those of us who actually do need a lot of skincare products.

Morning Routine:

1. Wash with benzoyl peroxide face wash and facial cleansing brush

2. Rinse with lukewarm water with a soft, white washcloth (benzoyl peroxide will bleach over time)

3. Cleanse and tone with two homemade essential oil toners with cotton pads

- First mixture: 1/2 water, 1/2 witch hazel, and 7-10 drops of tea tree oil

- Second mixture: 1/2 water, 1/2 witch hazel, 5 drops of lavender oil, and 5 drops of helichrysum oil

4. Apply a light layer of hyaluronic acid hydrating moisturizer (dermatologist-approved/recommended)

Night Routine:

If wearing makeup, start here:

1. Remove eye makeup with oil-free eye makeup remover using cotton pads

2. Remove face makeup with micellar water using cotton pads

If not wearing makeup start here:

3. Cleanse face with stubborn acne control Clearasil pads

4. Wash with benzoyl peroxide face wash (no facial cleansing brush)

5. Rinse with lukewarm water and white washcloth

6. Cleanse and tone with both toners

7. Apply a light layer of glycolic acid acne serum

8. Add two drops of maracuja oil every other night around eyes and mouth

As-Needed Face Masks:

Indian Healing Clay Mask

- Good for cystic acne and deep pore cleansing

Mint Julep Masque

- Draws out impurities

Tea Tree Oil Clay Mask

- Absorbs excess oil

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
