Reader SOS: Acne and Wrinkles. Seriously?!

This Reader SOS could not have come at a better time:

I read your True Nature Botanicals review blog post last month.  I have struggled with acne for years (I’m 37) and feel like I’m always looking for the product or regimen to really, once and for all, transform my skin.  :). I wanted to check in and see if the products were still working for you and also ask if you’ve found a morning routine that you found to work for you.
Thank you,

Last month, I told you how Pacific by True Nature Botanicals has quite literally transformed my skin.  For the last 2.5 years, I struggled with terrible cystic acne as well as the first (or maybe second or third) signs of aging.  After only 2-3 weeks of using Pacific by True Nature Botanicals, I saw remarkable results.  It’s now been almost five months, and I must say, I have not felt this good about my skin in a long, long time. Instead of having dozens of blemishes on any given day, I now get about one per month.  Yes, seriously.

Just today, True Nature Botanicals released an invaluable Adult Acne Guide, complete with 7 myth-busting solutions to effectively combat the dual indignities of acne and aging.  Check it out!  It’s chock-full of great information.  It definitely taught me a thing or two, and I’ve done A LOT of research on this topic!

To answer the second part of Adrianne’s question, my nighttime routine is as follows:

  1. Cleanse with Pacific Cleanser
  2. Spray Pacific Mist all over face and neck (3-4 sprays)
  3. Apply Pacific Balancing Face Oil all over face and neck (4-5 drops)
  4. Mix Pacific Topical Vitamin C Treatment with 3-4 pumps of Pacific Night Serum with Retinol and apply all over face and jawline.

Since my nighttime routine is so effective, my morning routine is simple!

  1. Cleanse with Pacific Exfoliating Cleanser
  2. Spray Pacific Mist all over face and neck (3-4 sprays)
  3. Apply Pacific Balancing Face Oil all over face and neck (4-5 drops)
  4. Apply Pacific Everyday Sheer Coverage SPF 20 all over face and neck (I use Light Tint in the fall and Winter and Medium Tint in the Spring and Summer.)

I hope that helps!  Here’s to clear, looks-good-for-your-age skin!  Have a great weekend, Bare Beauties.
