Review: Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Control Kit

My least favorite thing about my skin it’s acne! If something new comes out to the market targeted for acne, bet that I will try it.
Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide are two of the major over the counter approved ingredients for treating acne effectively, the Clean and Clear Advantage Acne control kit has it both in the kit and let me tell you, It’s a great combination.WP_000674
This is not like every acne control kit that has a soap, toner and moisturizer. This doesn’t has a toner and instead you get a Spot Treatment, I found this a little odd when I first got it, but I went ahead and used it. With the first few applications, my skin felt very clean and soft; they claim to “give you a clearer skin in as little as ! day of use” That wasn’t for me totally true, but I did find that my pimples were becoming a little smaller and more “cured” If I may call it like that.
I’ve been using the kit for a little over 4 months now, and I can totally feel the difference, I don’t miss wearing a toner anymore, and my acne it’s controlled but I still have the occasional or hormonal pimple, that I fight with the Spot Treatment, Just for as an update I still have acne dark spots, but it’s getting better and better as the time pass.
Now that you’ve read my overall thoughts on the Kit let me go a little more in-depth with each one of them.

Acne Control Cleanser

This product contaWP_000675ins as Active component: Benzoyl Peroxide Acne (10%), Benzoyl Peroxide usually comes 1%, 2% & 5% of strength, so this particular product it’s really strong and it’s supposed to work faster; this was also designed to remain on your skin and keep working after you wash it off and go on with your day.

If you have very sensitive skin, you will dry up; I have combination to dry skin now and when I use this, the side of my cheeks tents to get really dry, and sometimes may peel a little, but it’s not really bad I just make sure to put extra moisture on the sensitive areas. Also your skin get a little more vulnerable to the sunlight when you start using this product, and the use of sunscreen is recommended.

Love it or Hate it?! I Do love this product it has been working wonders on my skin, it helped keeping away acne from my face, and getting rid of the pimple I already had. So this is a total love!

Salicylic Acid Acne Medication Moisturizer

The Active Ingredient for this product is Salicylic Acid, This it actually can penetrate into the pore to dissolve dead skin cell build up and encourages the shedding of the top layer of skin which prevents the pores from becoming congested.  This makes it perfect for fighting acne easier; I actually think that this is nor moisturizing enough and if you have really dry skin this may not suit you well, you might have to reapply it thought the day or put on a second layer of it before applying your makeup.

Love it or hate it?! NONE! I like the product because it has a lot of benefits if you use it daily, but as I mentioned before, it’s not moisturizing enough for me and after I wash my face my skin it’s so dry and I have to reapply a 2nd layer and if you are in a rush at morning it can be a little annoying. Aside of that I like the product a lot.

Fast Acting Spot Treatment

At first I really hated it, because I thought I wasn’t doing anything for me, but now as the time passed, I’ve been using up the products and my skin has gotten a lot better; Now if a get a new pimple, I apply it on top and it does wonders for me, it diminishes the size of the pimple and it helps it get less red and better. I found that it’s better if you apply it after you moisturized instead of before moisturizer, that’s just my personal preference.

Love it Or Hate it?! Love It! a big miracle in a tiny tube.

7 Bad Habits That Can Ruin Your Hair

Hair Damage! One of those things that all girls are constantly worried about, and with good reason, think about it! think of all the Coloring, Highlights, Heat Tools, Sprays and all of the countless chemicals that goes into your hair and ruins it. But.. What if I tell you that you might have some habits that can also contribute with your hair getting more and more damage and m you might not be aware of them yet; But no worries we got you covered.

1. The first thing that comes to mind is Heat Damage, Seriously guys this can cause breakage, and as you know, breakage leads to hair loss.  To prevent this, try to cut down the amount of time that you put your hair under the heat by letting it air dry and then use the flat-iron, and try not to flat-iron and use a curling iron after, keep the heat to a minimum.


2. Not Using Heat Protectionthis can dry out the cuticle of the hair, which causes frizzy hair and breakage. I know it’s a pain and it takes a few extra minutes to incorporate heat protection into your hair routine, but, you’ll notice the difference that this little step will make with your hair. So take the extra effort, you have nothing to lose.


3.  Super Tight Hair Styles, Yep, that means no slicked back ponytails, super tight buns or braids. The traction that this gives over long periods of time can lead to inflammation of the root of the hair and ultimately causes hair loss.

I know that some people won’t like this one but, I have to say it, Quit chemically processing your hairThe chemicals that are used to color, curl or straighten your hair into a non-natural situation, do so by breaking and recreating molecular bonds; this is a serious chemical reaction that can be caustic and damaging to the scalp and follicles themselves. After several years of processing, some women lose the ability to grow hair permanently.

5. Manhandling Wet Hair, When your hair is soaking wet, it is weaker, more fragile and more susceptible to breakage. Try not to rough-dry your hair with a towel, and instead gently try to press the water out. Also, do not brush your hair while it is wet by if you need to do so use a wide-tooth comb, working from the ends of your hair on up, to prevent breakage.

6. Protect your hair from the sun, The sun can dry out your hair and make it prone to breakage, So! always remember to wear a hat or use a quality SPF spray on your beautiful strings.

.hats7. Eat a Well balanced Diet, Remember beautiful hair comes from the inside out, be sure to eat a balanced diet, that contains protein, omega-3, vitamins and biotin, so your hair can have all of the elements to grow the best hair that it can.

If you try to avoid or correct this bad habits you will discover more beautiful, stronger and healthy hair. Leave us a comment with your thoughts and also if you know of more bad habits that we might have that ruins our hair.
