How to clear acne fast

*Affiliate links.

Acne is a terrible skin condition many of us have had the displeasure of dealing with. It can be tricky to get rid of acne. Man products are advertised with the promise of helping your clear acne fast but they rarely do. Back in the day, I struggled a bit with acne and it took me ages to figure how to get rid of it all. I tried all sorts of products and many of them hardly made a difference for me.

Over the years, I have leant that natural products work better for me and I have now implemented natural and organic products into my lifestyle. So my skincare products are all natural and that move alone has made a massive difference on my skin.

I still struggle with flareups sometimes but I know now how to get rid of acne and other skin blemishes fast. Here are the products that have worked for me –

Dudu Osun Tropical African Black Soap

I use this African soap on my face almost every morning and it cleans and moisturises my face so well. The soap has an amazing texture and it is so long-lasting. This has been my go-to facial soap for many years now and it always does the trick!

Garnier Organic Thyme Purifying and Perfecting Toner for Combination and Oily Skin

I use this Garnier Organic Thyme Purifying and Perfecting Toner after cleansing my face and it works amazing well on my skin. The fragrance is amazing and it is super gentle on the skin as well. I love this toner.

Garnier Organic Lemongrass Detox Gel Wash 

This excellent facial wash cleanses my skin thoroughly. A little goes a long way and it does the job really well. I usually use this face wash at night to remove dirt and makeup and I love how it leaves my skin feeling and looking smooth and supple.

I should emphasise here, I remove my makeup with this Detox Gel Wash every night. If you struggle with skin issues, it is really important you clean your face with a detox wash every night to remove all impurities from your face.

Tea Tree Essential Oil

After cleansing my face, I dab a bit of a Tea Tree Essential Oil on the areas that have blemishes and leave for a few minutes to dry out. I usually use EDEN Tea Tree Oils (I sell them on here) but if I run out of those, I use this Absolute Aroma Tea Tree Essential Oil.

Tea Tree Cream

Once the Tea Tree Essential Oil is dried up, the next step is to apply this Tea Tree Cream. It is a great barrier cream that soothes, cleanses and purifying. I love how soft and smooth it leaves my skin. It is my go-to night cream.

So there you have it! These are the products that help keep my skin soft, smooth and acne-free. I use them on a daly basis and my skin thanks me for it.

4 Ways to Care for your Afro Natural Hair

Caring for your afro natural hair can be time consuming and tricky, but the results are always worth the struggle. I have been wearing my hair natural for many years now and I am really happy with how my hair looks.  The natural hair gets easier to maintain once you understand your hair type and you have the right products to help you.

Here are 4 ways to care for your afro natural hair:

4 Ways to Care for your Afro Natural Hair
Keep your hair hydrated

The natural hair loves and needs water to thrive. This is why it is so important to keep the hair hydrated everyday. It is easier to do this with a spray bottle. My bottle contains 80% water and 20% oil, and I keep my hair hydrated with this mix. On most days, I spray my hair at least twice and my hair stays moisturised, soft and hydrated. If your natural hair is dry and difficult to manage, you will find it a lot easier to style if you keep it hydrated on a daily basis.

Use protective styles

Most protective styles look great and they also help give your hair a break. The last thing you would want is combing your hair everyday. That puts a lot pressure on the day, which can lead to hair breakage. Having your hair in a protective style allows the hair grow faster. All you need to do is to ensure you are keeping the hair hydrated even while in a protective style.

Only natural products

I personally stay away from products with artificial ingredients. Although most natural products are a lot more expensive than artificial products, natural products are better for my hair. I cannot imagine using artificial products now that I know how harmful they can be to the hair. If possible, opt for only natural products.

No heat

I haven’t used heat on my hair in years and I love how healthy and long my hair is. Excess heat damages the hair. If you have to use heat, do use it sparingly.
