My skin is a mess 😭 HELP!
I look at the pictures above and I feel so bad about how I look... I believe I have combination sensitive skin... I also believe I was over exfoliating just a few weeks ago so I’m currently giving my skin a break from that... Products I just started using are: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser
Deep clean clogged pores
Exfoliate your skin
Skin brightening treatments
Dull skin face creams
FIRST AID BEAUTY
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE
_gracebelllhi! i remember turning to first aid beauty when i was struggling with cystic acne. it helped for a tiny bit, but then actually ended up causing more damage. Many of their products contain ingredients that have a high chance of causing irritation. Also, have you tried probiotics??

Found a picture of my 1st skincare collection
I was going through my pictures this morning and I found the picture I took of the very first skincare products I ever bought. I had masks etc. before this but this was the very beginning!! The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution I love this toner! It really does help with the texture of my skin and the price point is awesome with the amount you get! The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser When I first used this wash I really loved it! Now that I have tried many others, I don’t love it as much but it’s not the worst cleanser by any means. GOOD MOLECULES - Hyaluronic Acid Serum This is a very great HA serum and another one at a great price point! The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG I have seriously bad eye bags because I never sleep well, this serum does reduce them but I’ve recently found other products that are even better. My husband uses this for dark circles and there has been no difference. GOOD MOLECULES - Overnight Exfoliating Treatment This is a super gentle chemical exfoliator, if TO serum is too strong for you, give this one a try. You definitely wake up with much softer skin! The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution The cult favorite and I love it! It works and does everything it says! Definitely be safe with this one. No more than 2X a week. The Ordinary - Matrixyl* 10% + HA I cannot RAVE about this enough!!! This serum is the one that seriously reduced my deep forehead wrinkles. This is definitely one you should try if you are trying to reduce the appearance of yours! GOOD MOLECULES - Squalane Oil This is a perfect addition to your routine if you struggle with dry skin and are trying to use things that are anti-aging. Plus it’s amazing on lips too!! GOOD MOLECULES - Vitamin C Booster Powder I know there are mixed reviews on the do it yourself powders but I actually really love this one. As long as you mix it well into a water-based serum it’s awesome and you can skip a step in your routine. These are all really good products especially for a skincare beginner! If you have any questions about these let me know! ❤️
Are these products good ? NEED ADVICE
Hello everyone , So I recently purchased these two items : The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution ... just because I’ve seen a lot of good reviews on them. But, I also just wanted to try it for myself. I have two questions though. One... on what order of my skincare routine should I use them. Two... are they really that good? If you’ve tried these please help me out !!! Thanks a lot ! Have a blessed day🙏🏼❤️

VITAMINS are a must!
I’ve been using vitamin C products for over 3 years and it’s become one of the most beneficial ingredients to incorporate into my routine. I use pure vitamin C oils or serums and have noticed such a big difference in my skins texture and brightness. These are my fav vitamin C products: OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Serum THE inkey LIST - Vitamin C Serum 30ml OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer I started using retinol (vitamin A) about 1.5 years ago and I wish I started in my early 20s! I absolutely love retinol and how well it works for acne prone skin. My blemishes have been SO much more controlled now that I use retinol daily and my skin also looks so much smoother and more even. These are my fav retinol products: THE inkey LIST - Retinol Anti-Aging Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - A-Passioni Retinol Cream KNC BEAUTY - All Natural Retinol Infused Eye Mask Niacinamide (vitamin B3) was the last vitamin I started incorporating into my routine and that was about 8 months ago. Niacinamide has quickly become my fav ingredient to use because of the fact that I saw results so quickly! I’ve gotten so many compliments on my skin ever since I started using Niacinamide. My blemishes are all gone, my skin looks smooth and clean, and my skin looks brighter. These are my fav Niacinamide products: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum FIRST AID BEAUTY - Eye Duty Niacinamide Brightening Eye Cream I’m always on the internet trying to find graphs and charts to help me better understand the products and ingredients I use.

My skin Kraves these! 🌊
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ WORTH THE HYPE ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ The products are the only ones I've tried from Krave Beauty so far. I strongly look foward to trying them all eventually. Krave - Great Barrier Relief Is my saving grace! This is a forever staple in my collection of skincare now. I know this product will sooth and heal my skin whenever I need it most. Even if I don't have a damaged skin barrier, applying this in my night routine and putting an oil or night cream over it for bed causes my skin to wake up so hydrated and happy. ♡ Ingredients ♡ Tamanu Oil: breakout-clearing, texture-smoothing, manicure-giving (beta) active that helps revive skin Niacinamide: prevent breakouts and fades the look of dark spots while brightening skin Safflower and Rosehip oil: calms redness, soothes irritation, heals and nourishes dryness 🌎 I would say the smell is a bit interesting, the only way I could describe it is earthy, but I enjoy it. Also the texture is thicker than the usual serum so it spreads more like a moisturizer, but soaks into the skin quickly. Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream is an awesome morning moisturizer for me. This pairs so nice with sunscreen on top. Personally, I have pretty try skin so this cream is not enough alone unless I use a face oil before. (I love to layer light moisturizers like this others though so I love it) ♡ Ingredients ♡ Less than 10 ingredients: oat, water, 3 moisturizers, 2 skin emollients, 2 formula stabilizers. Oat, the main ingredient, is a longtime favorite for calming irritation and rebalancing stressed skin damaged by environmental aggressors. Amazing for all skin types and sensitivity prone too! 🌊 Incredibly light and creamy to apply. My fav base moisturizer for layering other moisturizers and sunscreens on top!! I'm looking forward to ordering all the other Krave Beauty products!! Thank you for reading! ♡✨🌸
This redness and maskne needs to go! I’ve been working on repairing my skin barrier for the last several months. My chin was super dry and flakey and it breaks out as well.

PURITO - Centella Unscented Serum 4. Sweet CHEF - Ginger + Vitamin C Serum Shot 5. Krave - Great Barrier Relief 6. PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ Pm: 1.

update skincare routine for fungal acne!
yay updated skincare routine! these past few months i had been getting these crazy breakouts on my forehead, but after a switching some products, my skin has been thriving! cleanser ￼ although i love the CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser, i found that i would irritate my skin a bit and i decided to switch over to my favorite fa safe gentle cleanser ETUDE - SoonJung pH6.5 Whip Cleanser serums ￼dont get me wrong, i absolutely LOVE the NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2%this was my second bottle of it but once i ran out i decided to finish up the PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serumso it wouldn’t be lying around in my skincare stash. but i still much prefer the naturium serum over peach and lily. essence ￼i wanted to incorporate an exfoliating step in mu routine sence i had drop the SA cleanser. so i thought the ISNtree - Clear Skin 8% AHA Essencewould be a perfect fit in my routine. i use this serum every other day. treatment ￼of course i have my holy grail Curology - Curology formulawith azelaic acid, clindamycin, and zinc pyrithione, this is the one product i will never get rid of moisturizer ￼i think the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Creamis an all around good moisturizer. its fungal acne safe however it wasn’t moisturizing enough nor did it prevent breakouts. i was previously using the NATURIUM - Marine Hyaluronic Water Creambefore but had temporarily stopped using it. although its not fungal acne safe, this moisturizer hasn’t caused any breakouts and is just so luxurious. and cheaper 😳 masks ￼ive had this DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Masksince last christmas, and since december is comming soon, i want to use this mask up as quickly as possible because baby this wasn’t cheap. i use this on the weekends in place of my exfoliating essence. oil / occlusive ￼in my last routine i was using Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectanton my cheeks for the evening but switched to The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalaneoils because i felt that it absorbed nicely and didn’t leave my poor pillow so mf greasy sunscreen ￼i love love love love the FACE HALO - MISSHA All-Around Safe Block Aqua Sun Gel SPF50+ PA++++but i wanted to try something new and something more accessible to me so i tried the Neutrogena - Sensitive Skin Face Liquid Sunscreen SPF 50and aaahh its an ok sunscreen but not as good as the missha one micellar water ￼i would always buy the GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover( blue) and i love it its great but i wanted to switch it up and use the pink one. its ok but i think the blue one works better. comment which products you love for fungal acne!! like and share! xo melanie 💗
I think it’s an allergic reaction to some of the products I’ve been using but I’m unsure 😐 Also I’ve got that weird ingrown dots all over my face and I don’t knkw what to do to get rid of it😪 I’ve been using - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleansermorning evening The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA every other night PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator every morning Followed by SPF Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Sunscreen SPF 50 And FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream for my face moisturiser And cetaphil sometimes cause I think first aid beauty’s irritating it??? Dunno PLS HELP!

Daytime skin care routine!
I like to keep my daytime routine super simple. First I wash my face with ￼YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser which is I find perfect for my combination skin! Non stripping but yet still makes my skin feel clean. ￼SUMMER FRIDAYS - CC Me Vitamin C Serum I’ve used this for almost 2 months. I only rated it a 3 star because honestly I don’t see it making a huge change in my skin. It does brighten and help with dullness a little. but I don’t see a change in my dark spots. I will use this up but I wouldn’t be re buying it. I’m personally just not a huge fan of it. ￼GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture CreamI recently just got this hence why I didn’t rate it! It smells amazing just like bananas. It’s nice medium thickness moisturizer. So far I don’t find it super thick on my skin and it doesn’t make my t zone look oily. From what I’ve tried I’d rate it a 4 star. I don’t think this will be enough moisture for me once winter comes but I do think this will perfect for summer. ￼Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I love this sunscreen doesn’t make my face feel oily and doesn’t break me out. Also I love using this under makeup. If you don’t like siliconey feels then i don’t think you’d like this.
I really really need help
Ok so I have no idea whats going on with my skin. I struggle with hyperpigmentation. Wether i pop my pimples or not, It will usually end up scaring or turning darker. Its like a vicious cycle and I cant seem to get my skin clear before my period and the whole pimple and scaring starts again. So I decided to change my routine, since my old one was not doing anything beneficial for my skin. Believing the hype I decided to get “The ordinary products because I dont have to wallet to afford more expensive items and I dont even live in America to shop freely for the items i need. Here my current routine innisfree - Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Facial Foam FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser On alternate days ill use The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution And lastly The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin I use the niacinimide before the Hyaluronic acid, and i only use one of the 2 listed cleansers Im not sure if im putting to much on my face but Im feeling really hopeless and i would love if someone explained what is happening to me. Ive obviously purged when i used these products but now my skin is acting like it’s breaking out. Its been almost exactly a month and i dont see any difference in my skin
⚡️EXFOLIATION NIGHT ROUTINE⚡️
On Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays I exfoliate!! Monday nights are the days I apply my retinol, while Thursday and Saturday I use my regular chemical exfoliant ✨ 🌿CLEANSER- Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser I LOVE this cleanser! I have combination-oily skin, but recently I’ve been trying to hydrate my skin more and it’s done WONDERS for my oil production! This cleanser is not stripping at all and leaves my skin soft and hydrated! ⚡️EXFOLIATOR- 💙RETINOL (Monday’s)- DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel I’ve been prescribed this by my doctor about a year ago and saw a huge difference with my acne. I just started using it again, and I forgot how much it helps. The only con is that I forget how drying and irritating it can be. Once a week is a good spot for me right now at this dosage. ☕️CHEMICAL- YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner This is my first chemical exfoliator and it’s lasting me a longgg time. I enjoy using this as it’s very good at deep cleansing my pores and getting extra dirt out of them. It has a ‘natural’ smell, aka not an amazing one. But still gets the job done! 💧SERUMS- ☁️The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I LOVE THIS it’s absolutely amazing at controlling my oil production and evening out my skin!!! I will say though, I haven’t noticed it help with my acne, but I don’t believe niacinamide is supposed to treat acne. 🌊The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5Just started using this, so can’t really rate it. But I love hyaluronic acid serums so I’m sure it’ll be great :) 💦FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum this could be so good, but I’ve noticed that it burns my face, especially my cheeks when I apply it. Shame. 👀 EYE SERUM- The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG I’ve struggled my whole teenage life with bags under my eyes. It seemed as if it didn’t matter how much sleep I got, I was always puffy and baggy. This is helping reduce the bags so much!! Bless the ordinary 🐘MOISTURIZER- DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream I have been using this for about 2.5 weeks, and i just love the look and feel of my skin after I use it and when I wake up in the morning. It’s plump and hydrated 👄LIPS- LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask this is only 3 stars because honestly I get the same results if I put on carmex before bed. It’s a nice experience with the spatula applicator and everything, but it’s not worth the money.
The Ordinary-Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
*UPDATED* PM skin routine 🌚
This is my pm skin routine, updated. This is my part 2 to my last post of my updated AM routine! 🌊HOLI FROG - Superior Omega Nutritive Gel Wash my boyfriend got me this for my bday, and I’ve used it 2 times so far. The consistency is perfect for what I wanted, I felt like I needed this for my stubborn hormonal acne. It also is unscented. So far, I like it a lot! ☕️ YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner when I exfoliate, this is my go to. I have a review on this in a previous post, where I go into more detail. 🍃NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% this is what I got instead of another TO niacinamide serum. I like this one a lot better, and I think it’s simply because it is formulated better. It doesn’t foam up like TO does, and it’s also unscented. It’s consistency and packaging is also better. The results are what’s expected from a niacinamide serum, and price wasn’t too bad for this serum either. 🍁The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG see my am routine post for details on this product. 🧬GOOD MOLECULES - Hyaluronic Acid Serum I like this serum because it’s cheaper like the ordinary, and it doesn’t foam up like TO did, but it still foams a little bit. It’s good enough for me, and isn’t scented. 🐘 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream this is my night moisturizer, and I love this because it’s thick and hydrating. It feels nice on the skin, doesn’t have any scent, and makes my skin feel plump. It is expensive though, but DE always is. pmd - Clean Smart Facial Cleansing Device I got this in my subscription box, and I’ve been using it at night to wash my face. It has 4 vibration settings, I use the first and second one for washing my face. I do think that it helps with exfoliation, and using the other side of the tool is made for massaging in serums. I found that it does take a lot of extra time when using it for serums. I like this tool, it’s nice, but not necessary. More of a luxury item.
The Ordinary-Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
GOOD MOLECULES Niacinamide
Hi!! 💕 New skin gal here. I used to have a basic/non existent routine but since getting a few professional facials I’m now finding it fun to learn about all things skin. My skin is pretty regular. I get oily patches, dry patches and acne on occasion. My first problem to tackle is going to be my pores. They look larger around my cheeks and nose and I’ve always struggled with blackheads. After searching for solutions I’ve landed on GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Brightening Toner& GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Serum. I was needing a new toner anyways and was looking into Niacinamide as a serum so I’m just going to go full speed ahead and try these out together. Wish me luck! My PM routine as of now - oil cleanser: I just use sweet almond oil I got off of Amazon. My skin friend told me about this so I just do it lol. I’m told oil sticks to oil so it’s good to start with this also to get your makeup off cleanse: I have a random collection of old cleansers that I’m using up but planning to switch to TULA SKINCARE - The Cult Classic Purifying Face Cleanserwhen I finish off my Neutrogena and etc 😉 exfoliate: I use ARCONA - Brightening Gommage 3x a week to schluff off the dead built up skin. I got this from my “Skin Studio” a few months back. I really like it but it’s pricey (over $50 I believe) so I’m going to try out cheaper alternatives when I’m out. tone: used to use THAYERS - Lavender Facial Toner which I liked mostly because of the smell but it wasn’t actually beneficial to my skin. I’m excited to use GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Brightening Tonerand see what difference this switch makes! mist: tbh I honestly use this at least 2-3x during my routine. I just love the smell and I can use the hydration. HONEST - ELEVATED HYDRATION MIST is the only one I’ve tried but I don’t care to try anything else - it’s THE BEST. serum/mask: this I rotate every day. I’ll post a picture of my “rotators” but today I used The Ordinary - Retinol 1% in Squalane I love the way my skin feels after I use this - soft and hydrated . I haven’t seen much of a difference quite yet. I’m still going to use it 2-3x a week and wait if I see any improvements. TODAY: GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Serum!!! I don’t know when to use this quite yet so I’m putting it here 🤷🏼♀️ directions say before creams! moisturize: I’ve used CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion my dermatologist acquaintance that said it’s the only thing he will use or recommend (to be exact, the AM is what I used to use twice a day. But now a friend gave me PM for nighttime but I don’t notice much of a difference other than texture). oil: gotta seal it up. I use 100% cold pressed Rose hip oil from Amazon. I don’t think brand really matters as long as it doesn’t have BS added ingredients Any advice appreciated!! 💕💕
Summer GLOWUP Nighttime Routine 🤩🤩
This summer, we are ALL about glowing up!! In my opinion, the best time to apply your major ~glow up~ products is at night. It allows you to apply more products and then let them soak in overnight. I start off by washing my face with Glossier’s Milky Jelly Cleanser. I love the way the bottle looks, and it is so gentle and moisturizing. After cleansing, I apply my Paula’s Choice BHA leave-on to exfoliate my face. Once this has soaked in I apply my Tatcha’s Violet-C serum to help brighten my skin and give it a good dose of antioxidants. I am trying to reduce redness on my face, so then I apply my treatment which is The Ordinary’s EUK 134*. Finally, I apply Laneige’s Sleeping Mask as my moisturizer. I am not crazy about this product, so I am in the process of finding something else to use as a night cream! I finish off by applying castor oil to my brows and lashes with a clean mascara wand. I let all of this soak in and then wake up to brighter and more even skin!
LANEIGE-Cica Sleeping Mask
drunk elephant A-Passioni Retinol Cream: i would use this as a spot treatment, about every other day. Its my first time using retinol and it is a high concentration 1% which is why i decided to start of slowly. I’ve been using it for 3mo now and i’ve seen a difference. New pimple/redness would be gone overnight, and my hyperpigmentation has faded over time. It does take commitment when using this product. You won’t see results overnight. It is pricey, so if you have the money, i would recommend this product. drunk elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night serum: i use this twice a week. I apply it on dry skin, as recommended. It does tingle but subsides after a few minutes. Overnight, i feel that my face is smooth like a baby’s butt. I was really surprised on how well this works. It has AHA/BHA mostly AHA which works on the skins surface and helps unglue the dead skin cells so you can expose the new layer of skin. You do need to follow with a sunscreen the morning after. All drunk elephant are pricey, but would recommend 100% Farmacy Green Clean cleansing balm: first time using a cleansing balm and works so much better at removing my waterproof mascara. A little goes a long way depending on how much makeup you wear. I dont use much, but i do use sunscreen everyday (i try my best) and double cleansing is a must! Laneige Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer: i use this every morning, after washing my face with water only. I dont usually wash my face in the morning unless i workout or feel the need to. This product works as a two in one: toner & moisturizer. I do have combo/oily skin, and some may say its too greasy for oil skin, but at night i use harsh ingredients and i like to use this to restore my skin barrier and moisturize my skin as my night time routine can be drying.
DRUNK ELEPHANT-A-Passioni Retinol Cream
Post Accutane Night Time Skin Care Routine
While on accutane I had a very simple skincare routine to allow the medication to do its thing. I’m 7 months post Accutane, and my face is still pimple free. Yay! My skin care concerns at this time is discoloration/dark spots and minimal scarring on one of my cheeks. In this routine I am using the Fresh Soy cleanser to cleanse. It’s so important to make sure you’re thoroughly cleansing your face so that the remaining products can properly penetrate the skin. I use esthetician Nayamka Roberts-Smith (@LABeautyologist)’s 60 second rule when cleansing. Cleansing your face with your fingers for 60 sec allows the cleanser ingredients to do their job. This method helps to soften the skin & dissolve sebum blockages a lot better. I then follow up with applying a hydrating toner (Laniege Cream Skin toner and moisturizer) to my face with my hands. Then 2-3x a week I go in with the exfoliating serum ( The Ordinary’s Mandelic Acid 10% + HA serum) to minimize texture and uneven skin tone. Mandelic acid is gentle and works great on hyperpigmentation on people with deeper skin tones. To end it all off, I use the Kate Somerville recovery cream. Cleanser - fresh - Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash Toner - LANEIGE - Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer Serum -The Ordinary - Mandelic Acid 10% + HA Moisturizer - Kate Somerville - DeliKate Recovery Cream Pro Tip: Wash your hands before washing your face!🧖🏾♀️ #CherieCreator
