Cursed with Aging Skin and Zits. So not fair

I am 38, and see the fine lines and the smile cracks gracing my face. I don't mind the smattering of little wrinkles, but it's the ongoing occassional zit breakout that makes me protest. At what age does a person stop having acne?

Hormones are probably the number one culprit to acne in women. The oil surplus created by these hormones may be instrumental in clogging hair follicles where bacteria grows and causes acne pimples and blemishes. Hormonal acne is seen mostly in women due to the natural cycles a woman goes through, such as menstruation, pregnancy and menopause.

Over the years, I have learned that if I keep sloughing off dead skin, and really work at keeping the top layer of skin 'fresh', my breakouts, even hormonal, are minimized. However, it's often the heavy duty facial cleansers that are needed to do the job.

Recently, I have been using a facial scrub that is all natural by Just Natural Skincare. It's called Facial Natural Polish, and is a smooth, yet slighty gritty formula that has a very slight, but pleasant smell. It is a concoction of things like shea butter, rosehip oil, borage oil and other all natural skin-friendly ingredients. I simply leave the polish in my shower, and give my face a quick little scrub while my hair conditioner is in. I have been using this polish for over three weeks now, and I haven't had any breakouts. Not a one, not even a tiny red zit!

This face polish is a gentle clarifying exfoliator, which is naturally removing pore-clogging debris, thereby preventing the backup of bacteria and acne.

Because I am not 20 anymore, I also appreciate that this face polish is non-drying and contains Vitamin E-infused beads the leave my skin feeling hydrated.

It was $29 for an 8 ounce bottle. On the website, it says 2 ounces, so I was thrilled to see the large size. Note to self: email them to let them know of the typo! This is an excellent product, and I've personally had great results - so I of course, wanted to share. I just use about a dime to nickel sized dollop in the shower, and have enough to get my neck as well.

Update: 2/25/09 - It's now been four weeks with NO breakouts, which is an all time record. I am now convinced that this was the missing link in my previous skin care regimen.
