Sensitive Skin Ingredients

This is a great guide to show skin sensitive issues ingredients! When I was dealing with skin barrier inflammation, some of these products saved my life. Ingredients I swear by:
Aloe Vera: this is great for inflammation and red skin. The plant is amazingly effective, but you can also buy the 100% gel at your local store as well!
Fruit of the Earth - Aloe Vera 100% Gel
SKINFOOD - Aloe Vera 93% Soothing Gel
Green Tea: The tea is a favorite I drink every morning, but I also love this in mask form!
TONYMOLY - I'm Real Green Tea Sheet Mask
Vitamin C Derivative: There’s many forms of Vitamin C. The strongest, L- Ascorbic Acid, is mostly toted for their effects, but there are other options. Sodium Ascorbly Phosphate, Magnesium Ascorbly Phospahte, etc. If you have skin sensitivity (burning, tingling, etc) to Vitamin C I recommend :
Seoul Ceuticals - 20% Vitamin C Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum
Lukewarm Water to Rinse: I recommend this no matter type of skin you have. Hot water can dry your face out, making you skin more irritable and sensitive.
Less is Key: When experiencing sensitivity it can often be associated to new products and the amount you use on your face. You do not need a 10 step routine to treat skin issues I found when I was using 3-4 steps my skin was treated just as effectively, you just need to find what works for your skin.
Mineral sunscreen: There are two types of sunscreen physical and mineral. Physical are usually chemical based and can cause irritation. Some great mineral sunscreens I’ve tried:
Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40
Neutrogena - Sensitive Skin Face Liquid Sunscreen SPF 50
My skin is not as sensitive as it was before but this is great photo I got from (babeandbeauty on IG).

HELP! Idk what to do for my face
These pictures were taken when my skin was in a rlly irritated state with a newer breakout. So I’ve been having breakouts/acne since my teen years. There have been few times in my life when my skin was actually clear and smooth with dark spots minimal and I had hope. My skin routine has pretty much been the same for years with the exception of switching toners or moisturizers here or there. My breakouts come and go. When the come, they are pretty bad and last for a while. This is what I currently use: Cleanser: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin when my acne was way worse I switched to this product and it made the world of a difference. I love how clean my skin feels without being stripped and I do believe this a great cleanser for my skin problems. MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater earthtoskin - Tea Time Anti Aging Face Toner So I’ve used Mario badescu for years and I felt like it helped at first but after I a while I couldn’t tell a difference anymore. I picked up the tea time toner at Walmart as a replacement and honestly can’t tell any difference. I can say it doesn’t harm my skin. Fruit of the Earth - Aloe Vera 100% Gel I usually put this on before a moisturizer. I can’t use this as moisturizer alone or my face will feel dry. PALMER'S - Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil ok this used to work like magic for me. It was a great moisturizer and helped fade marks but then like it just stopped working and I would have dry patches on my face. So then I switched to CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 and I like this product but sometimes I feel like it’s a little heavy. POND'S - Clarant B3 Normal to Oily Skin Dark Spot Corrector I use this at night time and I feel like it’s been a pretty good moisturizer. Over the past few weeks I’ve been reading so many posts on this app and I’ve come to learn that I may need to incorporate more and diff products into my routine. But I’m not exactly sure where to start. I’ve never used a chemical exfoliant and I have sensitive skin so I would like to find a good start for me. Also my skin is combination. I get the oiliness in my t zone. I would love for any advice and recommendations as to a good skin care routine for a newbie that will help with the hormonal acne, fine bumps, clogged pores, and dark marks/hyperpigmentation.

September Empties!
Hi Gems! We are now in the full swing of October so it’s time to review what I emptied in September! DevaCurl - One Condition Decadence for Super Curly Hair This conditioner was good for my damaged curls! It provided enough hydration, but I didn’t love how it felt going into my hair. I loved the subtle scent of and the bright packaging! Although this conditioner is great, it is pricy especially when I use so much of it! I have since moved on to trying another curly girl conditioner that I will review soon! JERGENS - Natural Glow Instant Sun Mousse This has been my go to drugstore self tanner for a while now! I never have any issues with it streaking when combined with my tanning mitt and it fades well. The smell is pretty bad and it can be very sticky, so I only leave it on for around 5-6 hours and use baby powder to combat stickiness! The color is great and not too orange! ogx - Renewing Argan Oil Of Morocco Weightless Healing Dry Oil I love this hair oil! It smells amazing AND tackles my frizzy curls like a champ! It is truly weightless and never leaves my hair feeling oily or weighed down! If you have trouble with frizz or just want your hair to look healthy this is definitely for you! I will be repurchasing! Fruit of the Earth - Aloe Vera 100% Gel Every girl needs a trust worthy aloe vera gel in her beauty line up and this is a fantastic one! This gel doesn’t have any added color which is why I like it! I use this on my face and my hair! For my face, it helps to hydrate and heal imperfections. I use it in my hair to help hydrate and lock my curl pattern making it a staple in my hair care routine! Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel I have been using this cleanser for months and it has never failed me! It foams wonderfully and has a minimal fragrance! It is reasonably priced and never makes my skin feel striped, which is always a concern with cleansing. The Hydro Boost line is one of my favorites but I am a huge fan of trying new things though, so I am testing out a different cleanser this month! DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum I got this in a trial size to test it out because they’re products are so expensive! The packaging is adorable, but it’s what’s inside that counts! I honestly didn’t see a huge difference in my complexion and overall it didn’t wow me. LOVE beauty AND planet - Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Radical Refresher Body Wash This body wash smells HEAVENLY and the packaging is adorable! However, it doesn’t leave me feeling as hydrated as I should or as other washes have! TRADER JOE'S - Nourish Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum This serum was great and inexpensive! It always leaves my face feeling super hydrated and supple! It lasted me a long time which made my really happy!

Stay Young Forever: Antioxidants 🍊
This is my favorite type of ingredient. If you’re looking for anti-aging, hyperpigmentation help, or even just prevention this is it! Antioxidants: You can find these in things around and even inside you. Vitamins such as A, C, and E have such a role in your life it’s crazy. Antioxidant main enemy is FREE RADICALS This free radicals are natural occurring and environment related stressors. They can be caused by the body’s metabolism or found in drugs, pesticides, cigarette smoke, and other pollutants. They over time damage cells and cause that portion of your body to not function properly. They are the most known for accelerating the aging process (mostly by diminishing collagen production). I love this chart because it lists the needs and skin types for each! My favorite is Vitamin C best to use during the daytime comes in many different forms helps the immune system (internal) Some of my faves 👇🏾 ORGANYS - ORGANYS Vitamin C Serum Seoul Ceuticals - 20% Vitamin C Hyaluronic Acid Serum Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum Resveratol : anti microbial produced by mostly fruits plants to protect from air pollution also cancer fighting expensive The Ordinary - Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% SKINCEUTICALS - RESVERATROL B E Nighttime Antioxidant Serum for face Vitamin E: needed by many organs helps quicken the skin healing process reduces stretch marks I like to get vitamin E in a oil form JĀSON - Vitamin E 5,000 I.U.

Glowy Skin Products Without The Heaviness ✨✨
I love a good dewy skin look.. but did you know you can do it even if you have combo oily skin. (It’s also non-comedogenic)! (L👉🏽R Order of Routine) KORRES - Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser this is a great gentle cleanser. It leaves my skin soft and doesn’t dry it out like other cleanser do. The yoghurt has collagen, amaranth seeds with vitamins and antioxidants, sea water for minerals and hydration (I can use this day & night & even for makeup removal)! KORRES - H2Rose Hydrating Face Mist I love this hydrating mist. I use it more as a Essence and skin prep for my vitamin C serum. I only use this during the day now because of the vitamin C concentration in it. Seoul Ceuticals - 20% Vitamin C Hyaluronic Acid Serum my current favorite vitamin C serum The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA my go to Hyperpigmentation treatment Perricone MD - Cold Plasma+ Advanced Serum Concentrate this is my favorite treatment that’s a serum/creams it has vitamin C ester & omega 3,6,&9. Its marketed to improve lines, wrinkles, & hyper pigmentation & IT WORKS ! I got this during a Boxycharm pop up for $35!!!! (It’s $145) DUFT & DOFT - Salmon Vgene Hydro Active Eye Cream the more I use this the more I like it. It has helped my undereye wrinkles a lot TULA SKINCARE - Daily Sunscreen Gel Broad Spectrum SPF 30 this is the main recipe for the glow! It’s my broad spectrum protection sunscreen. I mainly use this when I leave the house for that xtra glow or when I want added protection.

Aloe Vera: You Need This Year Round 🍃
Aloe Vera is A M A Z I N G. I usually get it from the supermarket and cut it up and store it, but since I’ve been in to K Beauty, purchased this from Ulta. SKINFOOD - Aloe Vera 93% Soothing Gel I originally bought this for irritation from my acids and to help my skin barrier. Since then, I’ve used it for just about everything else! Post wax/shaving soothing Acne scarring Relief from cold winds (moisture) Bug bites Other benefits: Sunburn relief Redness relief Irritation relief Rash relief Chafing relief This product was $8.00! Of course a little goes a long ways! It doesn’t have much of a smell and it’s very moisturizing. It does have added ingredients (which keeps it preserved). It does have fragrance so if you have skin sensitivity to fragrance I would avoid. I would also recommend Aloe Vera plants (you can get them for $3 a piece). The only downside to buying natural plants, is they have a tendency to go bad. This jar has lasted me about a month and I still have plenty left.

Let’s talk: The Ordinary Glycolic Acid Toner!
This has marked my 3rd night of use for this product. I have combo/oily skin & no sensitivity to ingredients. Glycolic acid? This is an acid categorized under AHA (alpha-hydroxy acid). This is the strongest among the AHA family, so it also makes it potentially the most irritating (if this product irritated your skin I recommend starting with lactic acid)! Glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane, it has the smallest molecular makeup (getting sciency with it). Benefits of glycolic acid: Stimulates Collagen production Minimizes fine lines & wrinkles Refines skin texture Treats hyperpigmentation 🚨 How to use: The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution The maximum recommended amount of Glycolic Acid *at home* is %10. use this product at night: this is to avoid sun damage that can occur during the day. I apply this product to a cotton pad and gently swipe/pat it into my skin. I use this currently every night: I have a tolerance towards acids! If you do not have a tolerance I would suggest building into this routine.. using it every other night! 🚨** I am slowly moving to every 3 nights, I find this to be a little too strong for my skin at the moment** DO NOT USE WITH RETINOL/RETINOIDS: Please, I’m begging you.. just don’t if you have sensitive, dry skin, or active breakouts. I use Differin Gel at 0.1% Adapalene to treat (which is a high concentration for OTC retinoid). DO NOT USE WITH OTHER ACIDS: Salicylic acid, lactic acids, mandelic acid... any acid! This is a sure way to cause irritation. DO NOT USE WITH PEPTIDES: I made the mistake of using CeraVe PM MOISTURIZR & that was a mistake! I switched over the the daily CeraVe Lotion and was fine on night two! In my experience, I experienced flushing, but not burning! (These are two noticeably different feelings). According to dermatologist this takes, 1 week for skin texture to improve 4 weeks-8 weeks for fading dark spots 4 weeks for clogged pores and blackhead My routine: CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% SKINFOOD - Aloe Vera 93% Soothing Gel this product is great for irritation! I use this before my moisturizer and my skin feels so much better! CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin

🤩🤩🤩
I’m in love with this! This mask is said to help brighten and rid the skin of impurities and it does just that. I used it at night and woke up with a brighter, moisturized, and fresh face. I really like the TONYMOLY brand sheet masks and this is one of my favorites. It’s a timeless classic for this brand and series. ❤️ Will be using again! 10/10 TONYMOLY - I'm Real Green Tea Sheet Mask

Acne/Rosacea/Irritation ✨ 2 Month Progress
Hi Lovelies ❤️ I am a new to skincare but slowly starting to fall in love with taking care of my skin and the self care aspect that goes along with it! I have been dealing with redness, acne and rosacea for around 10 years. I have combination leaning oily skin that is pretty sensitive. For the past 2 months I have been using adapalene 3 times a week and I did experience some purging and irritation in the beginning, but it has subsided over the past 2 weeks. I don’t use any other actives like salicylic acid at night with the retinoid since it causes my skin to get irritated. If you also have sensitive skin or rosacea I would love to know what products you use to help with redness! Also I have been looking into a thicker moisturizer and eye cream for nighttime so any recommendations would be appreciated! Here is a run down of products that I use on my skin and the regimen I’ve been following for the past couple months ❤️ PM ROUTINE BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Eye Gel-Cream humane - Oil-Free Daily Lightweight Face Moisturizer LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment (three times a week) AM ROUTINE CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cleanser The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Eye Gel-Cream humane - Oil-Free Daily Lightweight Face Moisturizer PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ OR Neutrogena - Sensitive Skin Face Liquid Sunscreen SPF 50

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 💗

Current Sunscreen Rotation☀️
I’ve been rotating between these sunscreens, depending on the day! TULA SKINCARE - Daily Sunscreen Gel Broad Spectrum SPF 30 least favorite choice but it has its benefits! This is a gel texture, and leaves the face pretty shiny. I don’t love layering it with other products/makeup, because it does have a pilling effect. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 this works as a great makeup primer!! The price is a little extreme for the size of the package, but I do love it as a clear layer under my makeup! VERSED - Daily Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum this is a new purchase and I’m loving it so far. I know that mineral sunscreens are typically recommended, but I’m not going to pretend to be an expert on that. I love that it has sort of a skin color, so it is almost like a tinted moisturizer. Works great for me!

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.

🌱NEW BEAUTY BUYS- MAD HIPPIE🌱
So essentially the couple who founded Mad Hippie are the coolest people ever. They created this line of skincare products when living in Central America. They realized falling in love with sun, sand and surf can cause your skin to suffer. Which drove them to create a skincare line that was simple, clean, natural and effective. ✨Skincare for the adventurers, explorers and dreamers✨ I’m got my hands on: The Vitamin C Serum, which has amazing reviews on their website! It’s packed with amazing ingredients like Vitamin C,E, Feurlic Acid, Konjac Root, Chamomile Extract, and Clary Sage. This Serum uses a blend of powerful antioxidants that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and discolouration. And the Microdermabrasion facial which is a dual-action resurfacing treatment combining micro-exfoliants with AHA’s to result in brighter, smoother skin. Naturally occurring AHA’s, Mandelic acid, a probiotic ferment, Volcanic Ash, and Bamboo Extract make this a gentle but effective mask. I’m really excited to incorporate these products into my routine, and can wait to give you all my full review ✨ Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum Mad Hippie - Microdermabrasion Facial

My skin care, what will be refilled?
So this is my current skin care routine, but just the basics. This doesn't include my spf, my extra wrinkle fighters, exfoliates, spot treatment...you get the picture. This is the always auto reflex routine. So what is coming back after it becomes an empty? SOAP & GLORY - Peaches And Clean Deep Cleansing Milk Right out of the gate, absolutely, 100%. This is one of the only times I can say I LOVE a cleanser. Cleans my skin without stripping, and leaves me sour before I put another product on THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Toner At some point in my life, I'm likely to repurchase this product. Where it's witch hazel, it's a handy product to have. that said I have another toner on my radar, so we might be taking a break Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum Probably not. Not a bad product at all, I have reviewed it before, but it's not my favorite Vitamin C serum (also have done a review), and my favorite is actually cheaper...so... CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream REALLY tough call. Absolutely love the product, but Cerave is owned by L'oreal, and I'm having a hard time supporting a company that employs Amber Heard. I did an entire, long post about it, but it has magically disappeared. If Amber Heard were not working for them, in a heartbeat I would repurchase LA ROCHE-POSAY - HYDRAPHASE INTENSE HYALURONIC ACID EYE CREAM Same exact issue Rosebud Perfume Co. - Rosebud Salve in a Tube Yes, yes, always yes. I have bought this stuff over and over, and will continue to do so. I have also done a review on this product as well

Skin is healing!
Skin is healing!
Thanks for all the suggestions from my last post. It really help get my skin and it looks better than before! Below are products I use to recover my skin. BLACK GIRL SUNSCREEN - Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30 The sunscreen by itself is very moisturizing enough to wear alone. It keeps my skin moisturize all day, gives me a beautiful flow. And the best part is that it doesn’t leave a white cast on my skin. This is the best sunscreen I ever tried! Sweet CHEF - Kale + Vitamin B Serum Shot I love this stuff! After trying the sheet mask I was convince that I needed to try the serum shot because that mask really heal the the dryness and the discomfort my face was feeling. The serum shot leaves my skin soft and very hydrate. I just don’t like how difficult it is to get the product into the dropper because the serum is quite thick. FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya I like this moisturizer because it light weight but still keeps my skin hydrated. It also pairs will with other products. I just didn’t care for scent. CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion I use this as my night time moisturizer along with the Honest face oil to lock in additional moisturizer. The formula is very light weight and it makes my skin feel soft alone. I just don’t like that I have to pump out a lot of the product to satisfy my skin. HONEST - ORGANIC BEAUTY FACIAL OIL I like this oil a lot. It pairs well with most of the moisturizers I have and it works well on my skin when I it wear alone. You can smell the lavender in it and I read some where that it’s not really good for the skin, but it’s been helping my skin. Sweet CHEF - Kale + Vitamin B Fresh Pressed Sheet Mask I mentioned how I loved this product already! esfolio - Green Tea Jelly Pack I found this gem at TJ Maxx for about $5.00 a few months ago. I wasn’t really sure how to use it and there weren’t many reviews on it as much. When my skin had that bad reaction using some of the Glow Recipe products this was the first thing I put on my face. I would wear it alone as an over night mask. And some times in the morning I would wear for 20 minutes then rinse off and proceed with my skincare routine. I really help with my drying skin and help it it hydrate. HONEST - Deep Hydration Eye Cream I notice I had a lot of dried skin on the bag of my eyes and just a little above my eye lids from using the Glow recipes Avocado Retinol eye cream. It look like premature winkles. To avoid damaging the skin more I use this eye cream to help give the skin hydration. I notice it improve my skin and the dead skin would slowly peel off.

5 Do’s and 2 Don’t’s to treat your hyperpigmenta
5 Do’s and 2 Don’t’s to treat your hyperpigmenta
We all have gone through dark spots I’m sure, whether it’s from an old acne spot, a sun spot or a scar. It’s disheartening when we want that beautiful even looking skin and then there are these dots of red or brown in the way. I have significant acne scarring and hella dry skin from years of cystic acne and destroying my skin.... so I’m going to give you my best tips! Do: Vitamin C! It’s a powerhouse antioxidant ingredient that fights free radical damage that can make these spots appear or even worsen them. It’s proven to lighten up and even skin tone for that beautiful bright glow! I love the Tatcha Violet C mask for weekly use as it somehow just brightens the skin quite instantly! TATCHA - Violet-C Radiance Mask Do: chemical exfoliation. This is your AHA products to dissolve the glue that is holding the dead and damaged skin to the surface. It helps get rid of them so healthier cells can find their way to the surface and shine! Honeymoon Glow from Farmacy is a fan favourite. Take it easy tho, a couple times a week is fine. FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum Or you can do the ordinary peel once a week! The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Do: Niacinamide. This is another superstar ingredient that will brighten up the skin and help those spots look lighter. It’s also good for oil control so that acne doesn’t pop up and cause more spots! The new cream from Caudalie is beautiful and will moisturizer at the same time! CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Moisturizer with Niacinamide Do: Hydrate!! When treating skin concerns it can be easy to just dry the skin out and attack it with treatments. We forget how delicate our skin is. SO HYDRATE AND MOISTURIZE MORNING AND NIGHT!! Your skin will always look more healthy this way. Do: SPF! If you ain’t protecting the skin from damage, all the effort in your skincare is pointless. Protect from the sun who will cause those spots to get worse and even create them. Protect your precious newly exfoliated and brightened skin so it stays healthy. I don’t care the excuses. EVERYDAY! The new one from First Aid Beauty is lightweight, non greasy, gives a slight glow with its tint and works well under makeup FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 Don’t: Over do it. Please keep the chemical exfoliation to once a week for a strong treatment or 3-4x a week for a more regular treatment. Overdoing it will literally make your skin 10x worse and more damaged, red and sore. Don’t: FORGET THE SPF. But also, please keep suntanning or tanning beds and such to a minimum. This will not clear your skin. It’s not worth it if you want clear skin. Bonus: Do not, please, do not pick at your face!! It’s satisfying to pop pimples or scratch a scab, but the scar lasts too long for it to be worth it.

As is it water-based, it holds a gel-type texture to give a soft weightless and light finish. Also with its high SPF and PA level, it completely guards the skin against UVA, UVB without leaving any greasiness or white cast. Key ingredients: •Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil (aka Sea Buckthorn Oil), in Korean cosmetic, the ingredient is listed as 'Vitamin Tree Oil' and it helps to supply the skin with moisture. •Tocopherol is an antioxidant that fights against free radicals found in the skin. Panthenol, beta-glucan, and allantoin soothes, relieves skin irritations. •Niacinamide is a skin brightening agent and helps to brighten the overall skin tone. My review: Let me start saying that the texture is LIGHTWEIGHT and its a watery-gel feeling since it’s water based, which I really really love since I have oily skin I don’t like heavy sunscreens! I use this everyday before makeup & it oaks into my skin looks very soft and doesn’t leave any residue, white cast or cause any irritation to my skin or eyes, you feel very refreshed and hydrated but not oily, just the right amount of moisture. Very good for sensitive skin aswell since it’s very light and have such great ingredients. I got this months ago and I still have a lot left so as you can see a little goes a LONG way, another thing that I love about it it’s that it’s SPF 50 which most of the sunscreens are 30 so I love that it has more coverage for UV rays. ALSO a PLUS, it has niacinamide wich such a GREAT ingredient for brighting that skin tone. Definitely recommend such a great lightweight everyday sunscreen. 10/10.

Oily Skin Glow Up ✨
Oily Skin Glow Up ✨
I know usually when you have oily skin the last thing you want to do is have a glowy complexion. Usually it’s matte everything. Mayttifying Toner. Matte primer. Matte foundation. But there are the occasional times I like a little bit of glow to my skincare. I believe there is a line between oily and glowing and you can achieve it with the right products. I, personally, have oily acne prone skin. When I want a little bit more of a glow I go with this routine: 1.) Cleanse - GEORGETTE KLINGER - Vitamin C Cleansing Gel Gel cleansers are amazing for oily skin! You’re going to get the deep cleanse you need without stripping your skin. I like the fact this one has vitamin C included which is going to help give your skin a boost to brighten a dull complexion. 2.) Treat - Murad - Vitamin C Glycolic Brightening Serum As much as I like the cleanser including vitamin C you’re going to get the most benefits out of a leave on treatment. This treatment pairs vitamin C with glycolic acid to give you a brighter, healthier looking complexion. The glycolic acid (which is great for oily skin!) is a chemical exfoliator that buffs away the dull dead skin cells to enhance the delivery of the vitamin C. It also has a little bit of a shimmer to the product which gives you a beautiful lit from within glow. It absorbs easily and feels really lightweight so oily skin isn’t bogged down all day like it can with other “glowy” products. 3.) Moisturize - GLAMGLOW - Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow (travel size) Now if I really want to have a glow I pull this out. You can really replace this with any gel moisturizer you have but this one does have a bit of nude shimmer in it that will help contribute to your glow up! It’s a very light weight gel consistency and a little goes a long way. 4.) Sunscreen - KINSHIP - Self Reflect Probiotic Moisturzing Sunscreen Zinc Oxide SPF 32 If you’re exfoliating or using vitamin C you HAVE to wear sunscreen. No ifs, ands, or buts. You have to. Those products, as beneficial as they are, make your skin a lot more photosensitive to the sun. 90% of aging comes from UVA/UVB rays so we need to help prevent this as much as possible. The Kinship sunscreen is a mineral sunscreen that is reef safe and designed for acne prone skin. This sunscreen has a little bit of a peach, glowy tint that rubs into the skin transparent but with a little bit of a glow. It highlights turmeric which soothes the skin (which you’ll need if you’re exfoliating) as well as strengthens and protects damaged skin. It also has kinbiome which will help strengthen your skin barrier. I received the Georgette Klinger as a gift the beginning of the month and I’ve been using it ever since. The Murad and Kinship I received in the 5th edition of the Trendmood box and they became immediate favorites. I’ve had a few Glamglow travel samples for quite a few years now.

My morning routine ~ skin care :)
My morning routine ~ skin care :)
I have it down to a science bc of how complicated my face is, but also from the glossier face quiz. It's only three questions, but basically it gives you a routine with steps for the morning and night. Of course, I got the combo result, and it's what I used to create my routine since it works for me. Anyway, here's what I use to prep my skin for makeup in the morning. :) 1. Wake up of course haha 2. I put one drop of the glossier super glow (vitamin c serum) onto my forehead and each cheek and lather it in. Then I let it dry a little to set in. 3. I use the glossier priming moisturizer on - around the length of my last finger digit (I'll post something soon showing how much of stuff I use) to give my face some moisture without getting too oily. 4. I finish up with the sun bum face 50 sunscreen and put a generous amount on since sunscreen soaks in pretty fast and bc I'm pale 😭🙃 That's all for the morning unless I put on makeup! That post is coming soon! ✨ Also, my face gets much less oily when I do this every morning and they're some of the products from the few brands I don't have allergic reactions or rashes to.
