And the winner is…MooGoo.
As you know, I’ve previously acknowledged that all of a sudden I developed skin problems. Hormone pills, moving countries and a slight ignorance to what happens on the inside of my body were all contributing factors. Any women reading this who suffer from acne or skin problems in general, will be able to tune in to the emotions that these problems produce.
Mr. FatUmbrella would also like to thank MooGoo personally, for giving him back his life. He now no longer wonders where I am for hours, only to find me huddled in the corner of our bathroom, shouting evil profanities at whichever bottle of acne cleansing gel lied to me-yet again.
I admit it ok, I’m a shallow buyer. If something has a tag around it saying “winner of so and so magazines best face cleanser”, I’ve handed my wage over and am back home using it before you can say “receipt?”. I know I’m not the only one, but we have to be conscious of what were buying. It was Mr. FatUmbrella who actually shed some light on to my bumpy face. Whilst smothering my skin in some new cream that I confessed left my face feeling like it was sizzling, he calmly turned to me and said, “don’t you think all these chemicals are probably making your skin worse?” The simplest statement. The smartest idea. God I hate it when he’s right.
Whilst buying my dried fruit nibbles in the health store, I thought I’d check out the creams and oils. There, my life changed. I also think it was a twist of fate as there was one bottle of MooGoo’s acne cleansing cream left: for me. I also bought the goats milk cleansing bar, as I’d done some research on how gentle and effective it was for problem skin.
I could see a difference in the first week. Mr. FatUmbrella saw a difference in my mood so he’s definitely gone gaga for the goo. These guys motto is that the bleaches that are in most anti-acne products are in the end going to be more harmful than helpful. Makes sense. Targeting the problems with anti-oxidants seems more logical.
It feels like a “beauty is more than skin deep” kind of topic. It’s complicated. Such a complex subject and definitely not vain. It’s true that if your happy on the inside it will emulate through, but having acne on your skin brings you down and you know what? You just can’t help it. Un-effective marketed let downs give birth to paranoia, depression and you are your own worst enemy; plastering make-up on problematic areas, making it more problematic.
Don’t despair. Try stripping back to the bare basics. Look for new, less mainstream routes perhaps and really take in to account what is happening to your body, what your putting in and what your slapping on.
If you don’t know what to do, go MooGoo!
