My 3 Beauty Woes for Beauty Monday #BeautyMonday

Looking in the mirror, we all have things we just aren’t happy with looking back at us.  We also have things that we just love, which is another post all in itself.  Today I am going to point out the 3 beauty woes I see looking back at me.

I’d love for you to leave comments on your own beauty woes and maybe I’ll spotlight those with things that could help them for future Beauty Monday postings.

My Personal 3 Beauty Woes (at this moment and time)

Acne

Why?  I’m 35 flippin’ years old and still get acne breakouts.  And it’s not just on the face. Neck, Back, Chest.  Red annoying dots.  I use acne products here and there and sometimes they do actually work, but more often than not they don’t.  Or they cause me to break out in an itchy rash.

Are you using anything that you love for adult acne?  What are they?  Or have you used something in the past that worked?  

Again give me things and I could try them and do a review on how it worked for me.  All thoughts welcomed.

Facial Hair

Probably my BIGGEST beauty woe.  No matter what I do, I get facial hair.  Quite a bit on my chin too.  My chin hair is probably the facial hair I hate the most. Its leaves me embarrassed and annoyed while also being self-conscious of it.

I have started an at home light thing, even though it doesn’t say anything about using it on the face.  It just says not to use around eyes.  So I am hoping that will cut it down some at least.  

Have you had any luck on getting rid of facial hair?  Again all ideas and thoughts welcome. Same applies that I’d be willing to try some to review and let you all know my results on using it.

Gray Hair

Something I have dealt with since my 20’s.  It’s a curse.  I dye my hair and not a couple of weeks later I see those stupid gray hairs peeking out of my scalp.  It just keeps getting worse, as gray hair does as you age.  

I do notice if I dye my hair at the salon, the grays stay hidden a bit longer than if I dye my hair myself at home.  Whether it’s just a strong better coverage or what.  Sometimes it’s worth it to me to go in and get my hair professionally done.  I just have been able to afford it lately.

Your Turn!

Tell me your beauty woes right now.  Leave me products idea for my current beauty woes.

    oh I have a lot. My first thing would be dark spots from the sun/acne marks. I have to color my hair at least once a month my grays gets really bad on the sides. I have wrinkles on my forehead which drive me crazy. I will stop at three. I wish I knew what to tell you about acne I still get some once in awhile I just make sure to use face masks and then put acne cream on the spot that needs it. Gray hair I wish mine wouldn’t show up so fast after coloring my hair just like yours.

    • I have this weird crease/wrinkle right between my eyes that drives me nuts.

      I’ll have to look for some things for dark spots and see what I find that might be a good review!

    my hair problem is on my upper lip, I use a hair removal cream from Avon that works well but would love to have a more permanent solution. I have heard that Tea Tree oil soap is great for preventing breakouts, and coco butter soap is good for dark spots and also I believe helps with breakouts. I have used many different face washes and I always come back to coco butter, it seems to be gentler on my skin and I get fewer breakouts when i use it.

    • Interesting I don’t think I heard that about tea tree oil soap.
      And upper lip hair is so annoying. I’ve tried hair removal creams in the past and just never work well for me – I wonder if I should try the Avon one. What is it called?

      • Debbie Gibson

        Skin So Soft Fresh & Smooth Moisturizing facial hair removal cream. you can find tea tree oil soap at Fred Meyers in the natural section or they might even have it at Chucks, I know they carry it at most of the health food stores around town.

      • Melissa M. Miller

        I second the Avon hair removal. I love it.

  • Acne is a big one for me! I also have red cheeks (a slight case of rosacea I think), though smart food choices and water can help tone down the redness. For the acne, I still have some spots at times, but this year I’ve been using the Biore Charcoal Face Wash and the Charcoal Konjac Sponge (I can’t remember the brand, I think it’s from Target) and this combination has been absolutely fantastic for me! I’d like to try another face wash with it, because I’m sure the Biore isn’t the most natural, to see if it’s the sponge itself or the combination, but since it’s working I’m also not sure if I want to switch it out! If I switch it out, I’d probably try the Michael Todd charcoal face wash since I’ve used it in the past.

    • I’ve been using that Biore Charcoal Face Wash in my shower and I LOVE it. I love the way it makes my skin feel as I am using it and I think I have noticed a difference. I actually have been tempted once I use all my other crap to just switch to it. I have been curious about those sponges…but they kind of scare me. lol

  • I guess this is really more about my hair, but I swear I grew a whole new hairline after being pregnant, and it has resulted in the weirdest sideburns that I swear were never there before!! Drives me crazy!

    • ugh, so annoying. I wonder if there is something to help that out there – cause I know I have heard this woe time and time again.

  • Alisha Duncan

    Just found my first grey hair a few weeks ago.. Looking forward to that change. As for acne, I feel your pain! The ONLY two products that work for me a ridiculously cheap. St. Ives Green Tea facial wash and the green tea exfoliate scrub. Can be found anywhere I bet.

    • So the answer seems to be green tea things. Good to know. Thanks Alisha!

  • Melissa M. Miller

    I have the same issue with facial hair and I also use the Avon Skin-So-Soft facial hair removal.

    For Acne, I love the Mario Badescu products. They have a drying cream spot treatment that is fantastic.

  • Acne, is my issue. Some products work for a extended amount of time and then they just stop working. I always have to keep switching my routine to keep my skin under control. Dead sea mud masks have worked great for me though.

    • I use Dead Sea Masks from time to time too. Ugh, they just need to vanish forever!
