Exfoliating with natural ingredients

Exfoliating the skin is a step that can't be skipped in any skin care routine, it should be done at least two times a week. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells that can make the skin look opaque and dull. It also helps clean out clogged pores. Every skin type can benefit from exfoliation.

There are a lot of facial exfoliating products in the market today, some products target specific skin concerns besides exfoliating the skin such as: brightening, anti-aging, minimizing pores and others. With so many options I prefer to use natural exfoliating ingredients from my kitchen, not only are they accessible but also affordable. So here are a few exfoliating ingredients that almost anyone can find in their kitchen too. Mixing a teaspoon of the ingredient you prefer with a teaspoon of your regular cleanser will work as an exfoliant.

Cane sugar: It is very light and soft when scrubbed against the skin. You can also use regular sugar if you prefer.

Salt: There are several types of salts, here I'll be referring to table salt the most commonly found in households. Salt has a harder consistency so when used as a facial exfoliant it should be done gently.

  Baking soda: Is not too abrasive when used as a facial exfoliant that's why it's suitable for any skin type. It really leaves the skin with a clean polished look, at least for the few times I've tried it.

Exfoliating doesn't have to be expensive as you can see. Giving these ingredients a try will help you figure out which one works best for your skin. And don't forget exfoliation is a must in any skin care routine as it helps the skin appear healthy and glowing.

My personal experience with acne medications

I developed acne when I was about fifteen years old, and with time it just kept getting worst.When I was In High School my cheecks were full of pimples. It was very hard emotionally having to go out to the world like that. All I wanted was to have clear healthy skin.

Today I would like to share my experience with acne an some of the products that I tried. These are just a few, I can't remember all of the products I used out of desperation. The products I mention here are the ones I can remember the most as I tried so many it got hard to keep track.

Proactive - It did not cure my acne it only had it under control. The root of the problem continued which is what happens with most acne products they don't attack the root of the problem they just help superficially. I used Proactive for about 2 years with no lasting results whenever I stopped the treatment.

Benzoyl peroxide - On a desperate attempt to cure my acne I bought a medicated over  the counter cream with a 10% concentration of benzoyl peroxide. I had in the past used the same type of medicated cream at a 2% and 5% concentration with no results of improvement in my skin. This time I went much further believing a 10% concentration 
would do the works. I was very wrong ! after using the medicated cream over night for about two days, my skin got flaky dry peeling and red. I stopped using the medicated cream immediately.

Sulfur - I once read that sulfur when used topically can help heal acne, so I decided to give it a try. I bought a sulfur ointment specially formulated for acne. After trying the sulfur ointment once or twice, my skin became dry and irritated, not as much as it did with the benzoyl peroxide though. I discontinued the use of this product because my skin didn't seem to like it.

Even though a lot of acne products I tried didn't help much, there were also other products that did help. Later on I will write a post about the products that did help improve my skin's appearance. There a lot of acne products today but not all of them work for everyone, since we all have different skin types. One thing is true with effort and patience you too can find products that your skin will react positively to.

Stylish Jewelry


        We usually can find beautiful jewelry pieces at any average mall store.  
At stores such as forever 21 and H & M I have personally found some hit pieces.
Even though I like these stores sometimes I fell like wearing a more original piece
of jewelry, something uncommon.

I was fortunate to find a website that sells handmade arts and crafts including
 jewelry it's called(etsy.com) After opening an account I decided to launch my
very own jewelry shop. At a young age I took the hobby of making handmade
 jewelry sometimes selling them to friends and family.

  I had only one thing in mind, create original pieces. I posted some of my most favorite 
and unique pieces at my newly made online shop which I gave the name: Luliku Creations. I 
sell all my jewelry at affordable prices and free shipping in the U.S.A only. Along this post there are a few pictures of my work. 

             As the owner of Luliku Creations I can say my jewelry pieces offer a unique style
             If you're in search of an original piece, you can find my shop in my link list on the top right column under Luliku Creations- unique jewelry.

                 Product review: Olay foaming face wash for sensitive skin

Olay's foaming face wash comes in several versions: sensitive, normal, and combination/oily skin. The
product comes in a tube like bottle, it contains 7.0 fluid oz. of product. This product is very affordable
it costs about $ 5.95 usd. and can be found in almost any drugstore.

One of the reasons I chose this product as a facial wash is because it's oil-free and fragrance free I believe that products that don't contain oil or fragrance are better for the skin. The second reason is that I have acne prone and oily skin therefore I only use oil free products.
I mainly use this facial wash once a day and at night I use another facial wash that helps control acne prone skin. This facial wash leaves my skin clean but not the squeaky clean that is so dry it hurts. One thing I really like is that it leaves my skin free of any oil, and make-up. After washing my face, my face feels soft and  smooth.

 This is a product I would definetly recommend. I am personally very satisfied with Olay's foaming face
 wash for sensitive, and normal skin as I have tried both. This product review is based on my personal opinion and experience while using this product. For more information about this product you can visit Olay's website at www.Olay.com
