sukin - Blemish Control Spot Banishing Gel 15ml
This spot treatment did wonders for my skin in the matter of 4-5 days. Along with a great cleanser of your choice and Sunscreen with SPF 50+ you’ll get dramatic results in no time. CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser
dermalogica - Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash
The two cleansers above are what i’ve tried out in the past and am still going with and yet to find a negative thing about them.

Layering Skincare Ingredients To Achieve Happy Skin
Layering skincare products is like math for me. I am looking to have A + B + C = happy skin. Which means that one is never enough. You must layer them and try them all, in random orders until you skin thanks you. Or at least that is what I belive. I am a skincare addict. I really love trying out new products that help my combination, aging and blemish-prone skin. So when I found a few products thanks after seeing them on a beauty vlogger’s YouTube page, I said hmm, maybe I will give it a try. So that is what I did. Well, I read a few reviews first and then I opted in to making that big ticket purchase. Now when it comes to picking and choosing skincare products I need to make sure that whatever I use with either solves 2 out of the 3 shallow, but obvious skincare issues (I think) I have. The first issue being that I need to balance the oily and the dry areas on my face and neck. The second well, second and third problem that I have are age spots and hyperpigmentation. For the life of me, I do not know why my skin attracts these hard to get rid of dark spots. It’s really annoying because I know that as soon as I get either a deep scratch, cut, and/or pimple on my face, it is downhill from there. Within 4 days there will be a dark spot and then for 3-4 months I am trying my hardest to use natural remedies to brighten those spots; until I say screw it and go to some trusted over the counter, yet reliable chemicals. A few years ago I worked with an esthetician who re-introducted me to the world of effective but not too harsh products with effective chemical ingredients. In high school I knew nothing of natural oils or actual juice from a leaf to heal my acne spots, all I knew was my mother read about it so she purchased it. They all had some types of chemicals in them and I was using them to quickly fade that mess on my face. For the past 2 months, I’ve been using the Dermalogica “dermalogica - Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash” and the Murad “Murad - Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum” on my face. According to beauty vloggers both products really helped them and of course according to multiple websites, both products have 4 out of 5 star reviews. 4 out of 5 is all I ever need to convince me to make a purchase and give it a try.  My dark spot fading, nightly skinroutine is really simple.  After I feel the effects of either being scratched or a pimple I messed with now needs to heal, I immediately wash my face. Using a nickel size amount of the “Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash, I cleanse my face with warm water and then rinse it with cool water. Next, I towel blot my face with a 100% cotton towel and leave it wet enough so that the serum will really soak in.I then pump out a dime size amount of the serum and evenly massage it on my face but concentrating on the areas prone to scarring and getting blemishes. Done This routine is very good to try at night. While you’re sleeping, the skin is able to do it’s most effective healing. The 2% hydroquinone is a lightening agent in the serum so therefore if you do this while you are sleeping your skin cell’s are getting extra help with the skin cell regenation resulting in a more rapid healing and fading process. Not to mention that the prep you did by washing it with the Dermalogica cleanser, the salicyclic acid removed dirt off the surface and unclogged your pores. This cleanser also contains Tea Tree, Lavender and Camellia Sineneis, which all can calm irritated skin and stop the skin from breaking out any further.  Although this skincare routine can be done in the morning, I believe and found that it was better this way because if you are using the “Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum” during daylight hourse you also have to make sure that you were an SPF 30. The reason being that your skin is being lightening which means that the skin is being bleached which attracts the sun. The sun will be more than likely to burn your skin causing more damage than the good you were trying to achieve. All in all, these 2 of the products really work miracles for my face especially to quickly fade those pesky blemishes.

FINALLY! An acne wash that didn’t dry me out💙
Boy oh boy do I love this cleanser! This is theCeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser with 4% Benzoyl Peroxide. It claims to clear pimples and blackheads, prevent new acne from forming and allow skin to heal. It also claims to maintain the skin barrier. It contains hyaluronic acid, three ceramides and niacinamide. I was a bit hesitant about the niacinamide as I had a bad reaction to The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% (see previous post). I’ve struggled with bad cystic acne for years. My acne is so bad that I am getting on Accutane next month. I have VERY dry skin that is prone to peeling, dry patches, etc. Over the years I have tried plenty of “acne fighting” cleansers, both high end and drugstore. All of them have dried me me out beyond belief, resulting in horrible irritation. Finally, I decided I would rather have acne than the irritation and unsightly dry patches. I began using the CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser and have been for years. I adore it! However, when I seen the CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser in store, I decided to take a chance with it since I’ve had amazing luck with all cerave products. I picked mine up at Target for $11.99 for 5 fl oz. The directions indicate you can use this twice a day, but I only use it at night. I think twice a day would be overkill, especially for those of us with dry and/or sensitive skin. Once I began using this, I was shocked to find that it didn’t over-strip my skin and didn’t dry me out. It was a miracle. I’ve been using this product daily for over a month and it still hasn’t dried me out, even as the weather has gotten colder. This does contain hyaluronic acid and ceramides, which definitely help with retaining the moisture barrier. Just for safe measures, I make sure to always use very moisturizing products on top of this, just to make sure my skin stays hydrated. One thing I can say about this cleanser that’s slightly annoying is that it doesn’t do a great job at getting stubborn makeup off. Therefore, I wouldn’t recommend relying solely on this to get off makeup, sunscreen, etc. This also shouldn’t be used around the eyes(trust me, it burns) so you can’t use it for mascara and such. This isn’t a big deal to me as I double cleanse. If you need a more “heavy duty” cleanser at night, you could always use this in the morning instead or just go in with a heavier cleanser before using this. Now on to the most important part; did this work for my acne? So, I can’t say this was a miracle worker. It didn’t completely clear up my skin. I honestly don’t think anything would and that’s why I’m going on Accutane. BUT, this definitely helped clear up some of my pimples and make them go away faster. Also, I haven’t been breaking out as much as usual, so this is definitely helping. I would definitely recommend this for all skin types, even dry skin! Hallelujah! Moisturizing + Acne Fighting =Winning 🎉

Start of Tretinoin and Spirinolactone journey
Start of Tretinoin and Spirinolactone journey
Today is my first day going on Spirinolactone (pills for hormonal acne that I will be taking 1x a day) and Tretinoin. I purchased both treatments from Apostrophe, so I have been prescribed them from a dermatologist. My Apostrophe cream formula is 0.025% Tretinoin and 4% Niacinimide. Backstory: I have been a skincare fanatic for about 4 years (my friends can vouch for this), always taking measures to maintain a healthy skin routine. I have had clear skin for my entire life until recently. I recently started breaking out in January and no product was working. So at this point, I have rightfully assumed I have hormonal acne at 19. I’m completely simplifying my routine to only include a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, the tret cream, and a sunscreen. My routine will be as follows: AM Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 (looking for a stronger SPF at this point, so will switch sunscreens when this bottle runs out) PM Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Apostrophe formula (using this after moisturizer so I can have a buffer between the tret and my skin) I have normal skin and will be adding more products gradually with extreme caution as time goes on, and my skin adjusts. I’m not sure the extent to which tret will dry my skin out either, so I will be looking out for that as time goes on. Since my skin isn’t sensitive, my plan is is to start using the Apostrophe formula 3x week for 2 weeks, and then every other day for another 2 weeks, and then start using it every day. Open to critique and suggestions about this since my derm says to start out using it every other day for 2-4 weeks, and then to switch to every day use. Anyhoo, I want this to be a sort of journal on how my skincare journey is going. I want to do weekly updates about my experiences with tret and spirinolactone, as well as show how my routine adjusts through this period. Sending many hugs to whoever reads this <3

Hi community! I’m 21 years old and love where I am on my skincare journey, but I’d appreciate getting some tips from some more experienced members of the community. Thanks in advance for your time 🥰 I have acne prone skin and I believe I am combination skin type. This app alerted me to my above average sized pores and I wonder if these are trapping oil and dirt. Every morning and evening, I do the following three steps: Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser Neutrogena - Alcohol Free Toner CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin Once a week, I exfoliate with fresh - Sugar Face Polish Exfoliator Using cetaphil cleanser before and after. Lately, I have been using this once a week for a treat: EVE LOM - EVE LOM Cleanser I try to avoid touching my face and I change my pillow cases 2-3 days. Is my acne due to hormones, high academic stress, or perhaps diet? Thanks for your time! 😍

I’ve been using the Avène - Cleansing Foam for years now. It’s a beautiful, soft foam that is only for cleansing the skin without stripping it of any of it’s natural oils. All avene products are designed for sensitive skin, so they don’t contain any harsh ingredients. I highly reccomend this to anyone looking for a basic cleanser without any added flair. When I was struggling with acne, I turned to this cleansing foam to gently cleanse and calm my skin. It did just that. It helped tone down redness and over time, reduced acne. You can buy this for around $20 on amazon and it’s 100% worth it.

curology skin journey + what is my acne called?
curology skin journey + what is my acne called?
trying out curology on acne with my eczema prone skin ⭐️ i have been trying out curology for the past week. i’ve always wanted to try it since the topicals that my dermatologist has given me recently haven’t helped my skin out at all. I’ve been so fed up with my skin and it really brings down my self-confidence. worst part of this whole thing is that I don’t know what type of acne I have, therefore I don’t know which products could help clear it. I was also really scared to try curology since I know that my skin is extremely dry. I was worried that curology would completely dry out my skin. however so far, my eczema hasn’t been as bad as I imagined it to be. review (so far): Curology - The Cleanser this cleanser is pretty gentle. It doesn’t foam up and it’s more like a jelly texture. Pretty similar to the Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser . however, this does seem to dry out my skin. But this can be fixed with some ointment and moisturizer. I also cleanse twice a day which could be part of the reason why I’ve noticed that my skin has dried out so much. Curology - Curology formula now this curology formula seems to be helping quite a bit. Ever since I started using curology I have noticed the difference in my acne. I’m not sure exactly what it is but I believe that it brought down some bumps and pimples that I had previously. but of course I still do get breakouts which will hopefully start to minimize later on. Curology - The Moisturizer I know that chirology was made for mostly people with acne prone/oily skin. So I knew that the moisturizer will be a lot thinner than one that I would typically use. I don’t hate this moisturizer since it does slightly hydrate my skin. However it is not enough hydration for eczema prone skin. because of this I also have to use the CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin which i do highly recommend. i hope this helped any of you who are considering curology. i’ll keep you all updated and let you know if it works well or fails miserably. also, if you guys could maybe help on any products for my skin it would be greatly appreciated. thank you.

These are my budget friendly oil control MUST HAVES: Cetaphil - DermaControl Oil Removing Foam Wash It is so gentle yet gives you a great, fresh, clean feeling without having to worry about breaking out or having a bad reaction to an ingredient. Highly recommend for sensitive skin! And very affordable. Avène - Cleanance Cleansing Gel for face and body A foaming cleanser for oily and acne-prone skin. Lifts away grease and makeup without stripping skin; helps regulate oil production. Double cleansing is important for blemish prone skin. I have no complaints about this cleanser. I am very satisfied. Breakouts are remarkably minimal now.
