I always try to keep up with my daily skin care routine to avoid unnecessary breakouts from dirt, pollution and make ups. One of my “Do- not-skip- product” is facial wash, it’s one of my priority to have on my routine.
I am a combination of oily and sensitive skin most likely during Summer.
I’ve used Nivea facial wash for the past 6 months, and I can say it is a good one, it makes your face glowy and bright which was my goal last year for my face however I decided to switch up since I’ve already achieved the goal that I wanted.
The next goal would most likely be “Clearer skin”. Since I am a breakout prone especially when my monthly visitor is coming up, I need to be extra on my skin.
I have been using Himalaya facial wash for two weeks now. Luckily, my skin did not have any allergic reaction to think that this is the first time I am using herbal wash. The micro beads from it makes my skin cleaner and fresher, it also make my face exfoliate; Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface. I take small amount of this face wash on my palms and massage it gently onto wet face and neck. This face wash lathers well and deep cleanses my skin. It can easily be removed in couple splashes of water.
I am using it two times a day, before applying make up and after removing it since the main reason of my breakout is most likely to be from my make ups. I am seeing an improvement on my skin, the redness and the parts that I have the most irritations are slightly gone now with the help of consistency, you will see thee faster results.
It comes in a transparent squeeze tube which I really prefer for me to see what’s left inside together with an easy open flip cap. The gel is transparent and contains blue micro beads that are very gentle on skin. You can carry this around especially it’s a travel friendly size.
2nd day of using Himalaya Facial wash
If you are not feeling beautiful, let me tell you something.
Admittedly, I was not going to post this photo. just because it is not Instagrammable, and I am not in my best. My face is embarrassing, I am breaking out. I felt sad. I tried everything but still I am going through this. I know to myself that this just a phase. But my other self is telling me that I am now stuck with this phase.
I hate how the redness is emphasizing my pimples. The two on my cheeks and one big red pimple on my sentido.
I kept on repeating to myself that this is just a phase. We got this. After religiously using the facial wash every single day. I can tell that there is a slow progress. I waited after couple of weeks for this;
2nd week of using Himalaya Facial wash
It took couple of weeks to see the results. You can’t deny that my skin improved from 0 – 100 real quick.
The redness and irritations are slowly going away, the only thing that you can still see is my pimple dark marks.
It is not an instant miracle but it is an absolute life savior.
I come to think that maybe it is not my make up that causes the breakouts after all. It is the oiliness that bring so much dirt that causes my breakouts since the beginning. I can tell because the claims on this facial wash says, it removes excess oil from my skin after every wash . The oiliness was reduced so is my breakouts.
It makes me happy on seeing my face glow up, from dull boring irritated skin to hydrated clear skin. I highly recommend this to anyone who has oily breakout prone skin however we are not all the same, there are products that is suitable for me and not for you. Although we can always try something new.
I am the living proof that the oil brings irritations and breakouts to our skin especially on our face. This facial wash really helps me alot on getting through this phase. I hope that this is the road to clearer skin that I am aiming for this year.
We are all beautiful, we just need to work hard on maintaining it. We got this.
