DIY: HoneySugar scrub & birth control :)

So I just started new birth control and for one I’m super scared of my acne flaring up again!! I’m taking Ortho Tri-Cyclen and from the reviews i’ve read so far it can really go both ways as far as the acne. I’m also concerned with the weight gain as it is I’m already 25lbs over weight from my miscarriage :( blehh Have any of you used it and what were your symptoms?? After one day of using I can already tell i'm more emotional LOL

Also, usually during the summer months the skin around my nose begins to peel it doesn't matter how much spf or moisturizer I use. So this is the time when I really have to be vigilant about using a facial scrub, I can't be caught with flakies. I make my own using organic honey & regular sugar. I don't really measure it out I squeeze out enough organic honey to cover my face & a little extra for my body & I add a tablespoon of sugar. I use this once a week in the shower. It makes my face super soft :) you can also use it as a mask and leave it on for 15mins.


  1. So sorry about the miscarriage! And thanks for the facial scrub recipe xx

  2. Sorry to hear about the miscarriage. Haven't used that BC.

  6. If you're dealing with flakes, you can also consider things like argan oil to moisturize your face, or do something like glycolic acid peels to dissolve that dead outer skin layer. Great blog, just started following you. :)

  7. Thanks for visiting my blog, you're my first international follower :) I also follow you, I love your post and your looks!

    Many kisses! Rachel

  8. @laurabeth you'll love the scrub it leaves ur face super soft

    @ashwini ty for the recommendations & ty for following

    @rachel yay I love following in blogs from other parts of the world :) although it makes me want to buy brands that I can't get my hands on like Gosh and Barry M LOL

  9. I was on in for a year and a half.. it's super harsh, I had to switch to a lower hormone one :/
    didn't have any acne or weight gain.. maybe an increase in appetite but if you dont act on it it's okay
    hope you have better luck

  10. @sophia so far i've been really tired ?? i'm not sure if it related to the pill or not but I find myself napping for at least 2hrs each day :(
