As a teen, I hardly ever fought acne. – I always knew that sentence would come back to bite me in the butt, but it was the truth. I remember some of my friends always being jealous because I could sleep in my makeup or casually wash my face with whatever product I decided to buy that month. Looking back, my clean face was definitely something I took for granted.
Not to mention being a girl has its downfalls – take birth control for instance. It can be a heaven sent or a force to be reckoned with. I had been on the same birth control (pill) for years before switching to Mirena (IUD) just 6 months ago. Ever since I switched my periods have barely been there (praise baby Jesus) but my hormones have kicked in and my face hasn’t been so clear. I continued to “half-ass” my cleaning routine until I finally realized that I had to do something. I didn’t want a 45 step process that takes 30 minutes every night – however I did want something that worked.
I tried a 100 different things until I found exactly what I was looking for – Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser. Its not harsh but after washing with it my face feels extremely clean not to mention soft. Once I found my cleanser I wanted to find a face mask that I could use once or twice a week just for something extra, that’s when I came across DUA Body and their amazing products.
DUA Body is perfect for so many reasons – not only are their products 100% organic they also stand for so much more. DUA hopes to inspire self-love and self-care with their organic beauty products and that’s exactly how I feel after using them. I’m a sucker for a company that has a special story behind their product.
The First DUA Body product I fell in love with was their “Fresh Crush“Charcoal Almond Body scrub. Let’s just say this stuff is magical – it makes your skin feel like a baby’s butt and it hydrates your skin as well (not to mention it smells like heaven). During the winter months I struggle with keeping my skin moisturized even with lotion so I was happy to find something that I could use in the shower but reap its benefits for the whole day!
My all time favorite is DUA’s “Oh Honey!” face mask – the name is perfect, the smell is perfect and the result is even more perfect. The amount of benefits I receive from this face mask is amazing; it hydrates, repairs, cleans and most importantly clears up my acne. I also love that its a quick mask – I apply the mask to my face, wait 5-10minutes and remove with warm water.
If you are struggling with acne I suggest at least giving these products a chance – I know every one has different skin types but trying something new never hurts. My skin has never been more clear than it is now and I’m so happy to find great products along the way. I have posted the different products and prices below!
