These Two Simple Ingredients Cleared Up One Teen’s Severe Acne Problem
A teenager from Las Vegas has left people shocked after revealing her amazing post-acne transformation. Hilda Paz Robles didn’t have pimples as a child, but she developed severe cystic acne all of a sudden in April 2017. This left her devastated and lowered her self-confidence. Since no traditional method seemed to work, Robles turned to two alternative ingredients.
Nothing would work until Hilda tried two ingredients that her aunt had suggested
Robles explained to Allure that her aunt recommended she drink parsley tea in order to solve her skincare woes. However, she didn’t like this idea, so instead, her aunt suggested she drank green tea, as it is easier to drink and digest.
Robles bought a box of green tea from her local 99 cent store, and added raw honey to sweeten it.
Little did she know this would be her magical cure. Now, she drinks it three times a week.
Moreover, she makes her own face mask by emptying the contents of a few green tea bags into a bowl, mixing it with raw honey and then applying the paste to her face. She lets it sit for at least 30 minutes up to 2 hours.
“I’m not saying it’s going to work for everybody because I tried so many different things before that, and nothing was working,” the teen shared with Allure.
Green tea is known to be good to clear and treat acne because of its antioxidant ingredient, EGCG, which has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects
Raw honey is also good for treating acne as it’s moisturizing, antiseptic, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial
The hydrogen peroxide found in raw honey heals the skin and reduces inflammation and redness.
While Robles mainly uses green tea and acne to clear her skin, she mentioned that there are two other secrets. She washes her face with Bioré Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar, noting, “I believe that’s how I got my blackheads out because I used to have bad blackheads everywhere.”
After washing her face, she hydrates with Pond’s Nourishing Moisturizing Cream.
However, once her skin began to clear up, she incorporated other products as well. To treat acne scarring, she started incorporating toner and face mists and admitted she uses two different Mario Badescu Facial Sprays – one with Aloe, Cucumber, and Green Tea and the other with Aloe, Herb, and Rosewater. Moreover, she uses Thayers Orignal Witch Hazel Toner.
Hilda’s original tweet showing before and after comparisons immediately went viral, and teens are in love with her list of skin products because it’s so short!
She captioned her transformation, simply, “Came a long way… before and after. Trust the process.”
One person commented, ‘”Right I’m going to need the lashes, eyebrow products, and skin routine please,” while another pleaded, “neeeeeeed that skin care routine!”
One user wrote, “Your skin looks absolutely great girl keep it up,” to which she replied, “Still working on it but thank you!”
