This post will save your Acne: Must Read ⬇️
Your Acne no matter what type of, doesn't define you. But think it as an accent in your beauty. It makes you beautiful! 🥰 Also, I know the struggle when it comes to acne and it's reoccurrence and the constant fight you put up with it. I've been there and I can never say I'm done with it. I had teenage acne, now at my 25 I have adult hormonal acne. Let's not forget my PCOS as a cherry on top. I have been studying whole science behind all types of Acne and if the further information is going to help you get rid of them, I'll be more than happy. Let's start with Teen Acne (Cystic acne) and Hormonal Cystic acne. Most of these ingredients also work for Closed comedones as well - Use : 1. Benzoyl peroxide - In face wash ( cleanser) or topical treatments ✨ Antiseptic (kills bacteria) ✨ Anti-inflammatory (reduces redness) ✨ Dries out the pimple Ex : Panoxyl PanOxyl - Acne Creamy Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 4% Daily Control NeutrogenA spot treatmentNeutrogena - Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel 2. Salicylic acid - In cleanser or topical treatments like SA toners, serum, creams ✨Oil-soluble facial acid (meaning it pentrates deeper into skin and dissolves excess sebum, dirt, bacteria) ✨Best for oily skin types ✨Clears/Unclogs pores ✨Exfoliates skin ✨Prevents future breakouts Ex: Cerave SA cleanserCeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser The inkey listPAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator SA cleanserTHE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser NATURIUM - BHA Liquid Exfoliant 2% Paula's BHA Naturium BHA 3.

Clear Genius... More Like Pureeee Genius
Clear Genius... More Like Pure Genius ⠀ I received this @bliss clear genius toner & serum in my @influenster complimentary fall vibes box and I have been very pleased! ⠀ Not only does this serum not cause my skin to pill but it leaves it brighter and smoother looking after every use! It includes 2 of my favorite ingredients bha & niacinamide which is why it caught my eye in the first place. ⠀ I use this 2 times a week at night and i find that it’s perfect for this time of year when I try not to exfoliate my skin as much.I will definitely be repurchasing it when I am finished. I would also like to say that I love the applicator. It’s a pump instead just pouring out the product which I love! ⠀ Have you tried this @bliss toner & serum? What was your experience with it?! ⠀ bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum

Do You Have Blackheads or Sebaceous Filaments?
I’ve seen a lot of post where people confuse the two. As someone who is an avid skincare researcher I think it’s time to clear the air. Sebaceous Filaments: What are they? Your skin does a lot of things that many people don’t know. One of them is oil control and keeping the skin balanced. Sebum is a natural oil that keeps your skin naturally moisturized. They are NORMAL. Annoying, but normal. Have your ever squeezed your nose and seen white or tinted yellow substance come out? That’s stuff is collected sebum and dead skin cells that has cooped up in your pores. You can treat this with a pore strip or getting them professionally extracted. 9/10 they will come back, unless you get your oil secretions under control. I recommend a chemical peel or salicylic acid. Also adding a great double cleansing routine will help tremendously! Blackheads What are they ? They are a form of acne. Better yet known as an open comedone. Blackheads can be caused by various factors: environment, oil, diet, hormones. And even medications. These contain bacteria which has clogged up your pores. Blackheads should be treated professionally or with a retinoid (most effective). DO NOT PICK AT HOME. Some products: PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution THE inkey LIST - Lactic Acid Serum PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster

The products that saved my skin ✨
I’ve always had clear skin growing up, but during the quarantine period (March-April) my skin had gotten REALLY bad and I couldn’t figure out why. After doing some research, I decided to strip down my routine to just a cleanser, acne treatment, moisturizer and sunscreen before re-adding serums. My skin is recovering well and I am so happy with the progress! COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser This cleanser is AMAZING. It smells a bit like tea tree oil but it is so gentle on the skin. My face is now SO SOFT! It’s a little pricey, but I only use a pea sized amount each time so it lasts quite a while. I will be a long time customer. C&C by Clean & Clear - Persa-Gel 10, Maximum Strength This benzoyl peroxide product was a life saver. I actually used the Persa-Gel 5, not 10; HOWEVER, I have read sources that say that 5% BP is just as effective as 10% and not as drying. I would apply this nightly, and I could notice a difference in just a few days. This stuff is strong and IT WORKS. I only use it as a spot treatment now when I see the beginning of new pimples, and I haven’t had any full ones form since using this product. CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion I found that it was too light for night time, but it’s a great light, no-fuss daily moisturizer that quickly absorbs and did not irritate my skin. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Sunscreen SPF 50 For ~$15 this one is decent! It’s a water gel sunscreen, so it does make me look a little greasy at first but my skin feels hydrated. It might not be the best for those with suuuper sensitive skin, but it works for me for now. The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG This is a staple! I’ve been using it for about a year and I am totally happy going out without under-eye concealer. PHYSICIANS FORMULA - 24-Karat Gold Collagen Eye Cream I layer this on top of the Caffeine solution; it’s okay, there are probably better creams out there. The gold flecks are pretty cute though! COSRX - AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner Another okay product, this keeps my skin soft and smooth but not sure it does much in terms of clarifying. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Doesn’t minimize the look of my pores like I had hoped but it does help a lot with the oiliness in my T-zone! The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% I use this once a week — my dark spots do seem to be fading quickly but BEWARE! This product is very potent and stings a bit upon application. The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA A good chemical exfoliant! It is gentle, yet effective. I use it twice a week. The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil I use it nightly and I wake up with radiant, plump skin. Seems to help with pigmentation as well!

New to skincare and looking for suggestions
Hi all. I'm relatively new to this whole properly taking care of my skin thing. I have combination skin, uneven skin tone, large pores and redness/discolouration. I've recently incorporated these products: Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Creami think i'm going to switch this out to the regular skin, as i'm finding it really makes my face oily. I do, however, need the moisturizer mostly around/on my nose. Or for when my pimples dry out. C&C by Clean & Clear - Persa-Gel 10, Maximum Strengthuse this mostly as a spot treatment. It dries my skin out a little bit, but i find it really helps flatten my pimples pretty quickly. I've only been using this product for a few days. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%literally just started using this today. As you can tell, i have MASSIVE pores. I have for as long as i can remember. Lately, it's really bothering me that my makeup sinks into my pores. I got a new pore primer today though and, so far, I'm impressed! Neutrogena - Pore Refining Cleanseronly been using this one for a few days. So far i'm pretty happy with it! Feels great on my skin and the scrub has been helping remove dry skin. I have also started using a salicylic acid acne treatment, for Clean & Clear. It's supposed to help remove blackheads. I have always been very nervous to use toners as I had bad luck with the Pro Activ system as a teen. This dries my skin out a bit, but i do find it helps reduce the oiliness throughout the day, especially at work when I have a full face of makeup on. I'm trying to give my skin as much of a break as possible when I'm not at work. I wake up really oily no matter what, but I'm wondering if this is just a regular thing for people? I hate it lmao I'm extremely self concious about my skin. I hate it and I have since i first got acne at age 10. It was so bad, I'm pretty sure my pores are also so big because they're probably partially acne scars. Any suggestions would be great!! I find my skin is a little sensitive, but i'm quickly getting used to the burning of the toner lol Thanks in advance :)

Call me obsessed! Aveeno Positively Radiant
So I have been using both the Aveeno - Positively Radiant Night Cream and the Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 for a couple of months and I am officially hooked on this collection. Especially the night cream. I am a combination skin type!  I honestly don’t use the daytime moisturizer as much because I prefer more of a water based gel moisturizer especially on days that I have on makeup. But it is usually my go to on my outdoor makeup free days! Especially love the fact that it has SPF but doesn’t leave a huge white cast on my skin🙌🏾. Now the night cream though.. that’s a whole other story. This is the only night cream I used for MONTHS since I discovered it. I finally ran out of this along with some of my other items, hence I didn’t use it for a few days and everything about my skin just felt off. I finally got it back and my skin bounced right back! I am so glad! The key claims that I found to be true Both Extremely moisturizing Leaves skin feeling fresh and plump Leaves skin looking bright and radiant Lightweight and Fast absorbing Improves skin texture Balances the skin Would definitely recommend!

REDNESS BE GONE!!!
Finding the perfect skin routine can be so difficult and so many products claim to do the same thing. That being said, my face tends to be very red and I’ve always wanted to correct that. After a few appts with my esthetician, she prescribed me some CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum and I am thankful she did! I have been using this product for over 6 months now, using it just at night before bed and my redness has significantly decreased. It’s definitely not gone, and I do wish I had a product that completely took away my redness but this is doing it’s job! A few things that I love about this product is that it is fragrance free so my sensitive face doesn’t get irritated by it. It also is very light weight and soaks into the skin pretty quickly. You also don’t need to use more than 1 pump to cover your face (yay for conserving products!) If you’re like me and are wanting your face to be a complexion of brightness and less red, check this out 😃

New Goodies!!
Super excited to add these new products to my skincare routine! so far, i’ve only used the aveeno ultra calming cleanser (which lathers SOOOOO nicely) and differin gel as a spot treatment (you’re supposed use on the entire face) but i used as a spot treatment anyway and overnight, the whiteheads that i was recently worrying about are all dried up! this shit is great! for anyone who uses retinols/ retinoids like myself, I would highly reccommend cleansing your face with micellar water during the middle of the day if you usually wear no makeup but if not, i would use before doing your nighttime skincare routine. it’s helped pick up a lot of dead skin cells, dirt and oil that i could’ve missed while washing! can’t wait to update you guys on my skincare journey and mega thank you to @D.Bennett for recommending some of these products to me!! you’re a god send 🥺

Skincare advice from my derm
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in over ten years of dealing with acne, it’s that sometimes, over the counter products just aren’t enough. Frustratingly, the healthcare system in the US makes dermatologist visits and prescription meds very expensive. That’s why I want to share some of the advice I’ve gotten from my dermatologist. While I do use several prescription medicines to treat my acne, the tips and tricks I’ve gotten from my derm are useful for anyone dealing with the same issues as me (hormonal acne, as well as the texture and hyperpigmentation left behind). For reference, my skin is not sensitive—not sure if I was born that way or if I’ve built up a tolerance to harsh products over the years. I use a telemedicine service called Apostrophe, and before that, I used Curology. You fill out a questionnaire on your medical history and skin concerns, upload pictures of your skin, and a dermatologist reviews the information and creates a treatment plan for you. I have a whole post on why I switched from Curology to Apostrophe, but the short answer is that Apostrophe prescribes more oral medications and I wanted to try that route. I’ve had an excellent experience with both companies in terms of the detailed advice I’ve gotten from my providers. So let’s get into it! Here are some things my dermatologists have told me: Don’t pick at your skin... seriously. One of the best tips I got was to use hydrocolloid patches on acne with a head: not only does it help the bump go down way quicker, it keeps me from picking at it any further. I LOVE the COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch and I never go without them. Look at your diet. My derm says she gives this advice to ALL her patients: limit sugar, processed carbohydrates, and dairy. She says food is not generally the main cause of acne, but it can certainly aggravate it. She also always recommends increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables. Use sun protection—it helps dark spots fade faster, and of course prevents wrinkles. My derm recommends wearing SPF 30 or higher, as well as a wide-brimmed hat when outdoors. Along with my prescription cream, which includes niacinamide and tretinoin, my derm recommends the following products: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Duo Dual Acne Treatment, LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel, LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser,CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin,Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser, LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer UV SPF 30, CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream These tips and the prescription meds I received from Apostrophe, have made my face clearer than it’s been in YEARS. I’m thrilled with my progress (the before/after photos have about 90 days between them). I’m running out of space, but feel free to ask any questions in the comments! #CheriePartner

New Goodies!!
Super excited to add these new products to my skincare routine! so far, i’ve only used the aveeno ultra calming cleanser (which lathers SOOOOO nicely) and differin gel as a spot treatment (you’re supposed use on the entire face) but i used as a spot treatment anyway and overnight, the whiteheads that i was recently worrying about are all dried up! this shit is great! for anyone who uses retinols/ retinoids like myself, I would highly reccommend cleansing your face with micellar water during the middle of the day if you usually wear no makeup but if not, i would use before doing your nighttime skincare routine. it’s helped pick up a lot of dead skin cells, dirt and oil that i could’ve missed while washing! can’t wait to update you guys on my skincare journey and mega thank you to @D.Bennett for recommending some of these products to me!! you’re a god send 🥺

First time trying the cerave SA smoothing cream!
First time trying the cerave SA smoothing cream!
So I’ve been dealing with hormonal breakouts on my chin (and recently my forehead) for a long time now and I heard that cerave skincare was really good for most skin types! I think I have combination skin, my cheeks are pretty normal but my forehead and chin can get oily throughout the day (I only break out on my chin and forehead), I also get pretty dry after washing my face. I’m very new to skincare, I still only wash my face with water and previously used the aveeno moisturiser, which worked for me for a while but hasn’t been doing anything for me for the past few months.Aveeno - Skin Relief Moisturising Cream I just bought the cerave SA smoothing cream for dry, rough and bumpy skin, I’ve only used it twice (last night and this morning). CeraVe - SA Moisturizing Cream For Rough & Bumpy Skin I’m hoping this cream will work to help reduce the breakouts I have and hopefully prevent further ones. So far, I haven’t noticed anything groundbreaking but I will say that my skin feels very hydrated and my T-zone doesn’t feel as oily as it did before. I still really want to try a cerave cleanser (currently sold out everywhere which sucks) - I just have no idea which one to choose for my skin! I’m contemplating the CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cleanserso that it goes with the moisturiser but I’m not sure if this will be too harsh and if I should stick with the hydrating cleanser. I also really want to try The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%as I’ve heard really great things about this. I’ll keep updating and hopefully see some results soon!

I resent it quit my birth control (the kyleena IUD) and my skin freaked out. Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures but I started breaking out in hormonal acne and little bumps all over my chin and forehead. And here’s the routine that helped support my skin CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser I use this product morning and night to gently cleanse. I’d like to give this more stars but I’ve only been using it for about a month and I’m still not COMPLETELY converted. I love how hydrating and gentle it feels on the skin, it doesn’t damage my skins moisture barrier and I never feel stripped and tight after cleansing. However it doesn’t seem like it would work very well to remove an oil cleanser and additionally I feel like I need to cleanse longer when my skin is oily but since I mostly break out due to dryness I like it. CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin A classic holy grail for a reason. It’s super moisturizing, skin barrier friendly, doesn’t break me out and is just all around a great product. I use this morning and night The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution I use this every 2-3 days at night time to exfoliate. It helps get rid of texture and dark spots and works very well, however; it causes a bit of a tingling/stinging sensation since my skin is super sensitive but it goes away within a minute. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Combats sensitivity, and inflammation and helps sooth redness which is amazing for healing breakouts. I will say I’m sure it’s doing it’s job but you won’t see any drastic overnight differences COSRX - Natural BHA Skin Returning Emulsion The BHA and centella asiatica extract in this are an amazing combination for any acne or blackheads. This changed the appearance of the bumps on my forehead and chin overnight. It’s super gentle and feels great on the skin. This is one of my favourite products COSRX - Master Patch Combo Just like the BHA toner this product is amazing especially because I have the awful habit of picking my skin. These draw out all the hung and impurities and blend into the skin so much better than I thought they would. They also have a bit of a blueing effect on the spot so it hides the angry redness and they are even great for day wear. These get rid on any problem spots practically over night. Kiehl's - Super Fluid Daily UV Defense SPF 50+ Sunscreen is nonnegotiable for me especially because I’m so prone to dark spots. This one is super lightweight and doesn’t smell like sunscreen which is great but I think it’s a little over priced. It’s still a great product though FOREO - LUNA mini 2 This cleansing brush is amazing. I’ve been using it for 4 years and It helps clean out your pores and leaves your looking super dewy and fresh

My Korean Skincare Routine for Acne!!
My Korean Skincare Routine for Acne!!
SATURDAY SKIN - RISE + SHINE Purifying Cleanser AROMATICA - Rose Absolute First Serum MIZON - Snail Recovery Gel Cream BANILA CO - Dear Hydration Toner I was on accutane for 4 months in 2019, and I thought I found the cure for my acne. Unfortunately, I started breaking out again in February of 2020. My breakouts went back and forth, but either way they left me with more PIE (Post Inflammatory Erythema aka those RED/PINK marks leftover from acne) My skin was also insanely dry and painful!! Any face wash I used just burned and irritated my skin even more! I didn’t have a consistent skincare routine, so I turned to peachandlily.com to look for a Korean skincare routine that’s also cruelty free. I think I found my new go to routine! It’s pretty simple, but after only 2 weeks I am satisfied with the products so far. Of course they don’t create miracles, but I don’t have any current breakouts (which I’m surprised my skin didn’t purge), my skin is MUCH more hydrated, and I feel as though my PIE looks slightly lighter! I started with the Saturday Skin Rise + Shine Purifying Cleanser, then use the Banila Co Dear Hydration toner to help with my acne, follow it with the Aromatica Rose Absolute First Serum, and finish it off with the Mizon Snail Recovery Gel! The Saturday Skin cleanser surprisingly leaves my skin moisturized! The Banila Co toner has peppermint extract to help calm acne. The Aromatica serum has niacinamide which is supposed to help calm acne and fade both PIE and hyperpigmentation. The Snail Recovery Gel has snail mucin to help calm acne and also moisturize with anti-aging effects! Overall I’m very satisfied with this new routine, and I will update in a month to see how my skin is doing!

Best Acne Nighttime Treatment (non-fungal)
Okay so I’ve posted results of my use of Differin Gel & now I’m going to post my usual routine. (When I’m not wearing makeup). My skin is so weird now since I started using Differin Gel (I went from extreme oily to more combo/oily). Step 1 cleanser CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser I use this when my skin is dry from the day. If I used a mask earlier or a scrub this usually happens. I also like this because I find that adding that extra moisture is important to prep for the Differin gel -or- LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser for Oily Skin I use this of my skin is extra oily from the day. It’s for oily sensitive skin . Sometimes when I go outside with my heavier sunscreen it leaves that annoying oily feel at the end of the day (especially in my t-zone). This cleanser is amazing. I bought the travel size because it was first time trying it but I’ll definitely get the biggest size when I run out! Step 2- I left out my toner because I threw away my Kiehl's - Cucumber Herbal Alcohol-Free Toner after doing more research into the ingredients & ordered my regular toners I used to use. Step 3 Treat: Serum: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% this is great for my pores and acne breakout I already have. I know it’s totes for oil control to, but I use it all over my face. *Actives* DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel this is my HG acne treatment. I’ve been using religiously it & now I need to buy a new! (I have a lost how to apply correctly). BURT’S BEES - Natural Acne Solutions Maximum Strength Spot Treatment Cream **NEVER USE THIS THE SAME NIGHT AS DIFFERIN GEL!** I use this if I get a really bad spot that I want gone by the morning. It’s the highest concentration of salicylic acid you can get over the counter & it has willow bark (a great pair for salicylic acid). I love a majority of Burt’s bees products due to the high natural ingredients. BURT’S BEES - Renewal Smoothing Eye Cream I did a previous post about using this & how its a effective retinol alternative. I have sensitive under eyes and don’t like to put too many harsh ingredients. This works great for my fine lines. Step 4 moisturize: CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion I love this moisturizer. It’s not too heavy but just enough ingredients to be effective. It has that extra added niacinamide I need fr my pores & it doesn’t clog my pores at all! WELEDA - Skin Food Original Ultra-Rich Cream I only use this if my skin is extra dry. This will replace my CeraVe (don’t want too much moisture). A little of this goes a long way! I use like two pea-size dots and it covers my entire face dr. brandt - Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask after my moisturizer. I love how this replenishes my moisture. I use this mask 2 times a week.

what worked for me
what worked for me
background: all my life i thought i had oily skin because i had acne but recently i’ve noticed my skin is dry and sensitive. i used Aveeno - Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser for 2 years. the cleanser did have some good ingredients that kept my cysts at bay but overall i found it very stripping and i still had acne. my doctor recommended a water based moisturizer so my mom picked up Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer and i used it for 2 years as well. with a constant skincare routine i thought that my acne would settle down but it did not. i asked my friend whats she did to control her acne and she said that she popped her pimples with a hot needle so i tried it. to nobodies surprise, i got acne scars. i went back to my doctor and she prescribed a 2.5% benzoyl peroxide cream mixed with 0.3% adapalene (tactupump) and that cleared the whiteheads but it gave me very bad chemical burns all over my face. what worked for me cutting out fragrance was the best decision i’ve ever made!!! i change my pillowcase every night and only use a cleanser at night. i have a really bad habit of sleeping on my hands so i use hand sanitizer after i put my phone down for the night and i don’t touch anything else. products i use The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser i use this as a cleansing balm to remove my makeup. super hydrating and non irritating YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser it’s not overly stripping and still has a little bit of a smell due to the natural ingredients but is non irritating The Ordinary - Retinol 0.2% in Squalane i alternate between retinol and chemical exfoliation every night. as i just introduced retinol into my skincare routine i’m starting with a lower percentage to build up a tolerance. The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA i apply the product after i finish with my squalane cleanser and then wait 10 minutes for the acid to do its job then follow up with my superfood cleanser. it has done wonders for my acne scars and pores!! it’s great for my sensitive skin The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA i use this as a “primer” for my moisturizer. because this product is filled with humectants, it does a really good job of making sure that my moisturizer really penetrates my skin. because i live in a dry climate, using this as a moisturizer by itself wouldn’t be enough CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin SO GOOD. this is the only moisturizer that can make my skin not feel like it’s been grilled on a bbq. it offers amazing ingredients and protects the skins moisture barrier CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 it’s not very moisturizing and it’s hard to spread but it gives good sun protection. it has a little bit of a white cast but it’s not terrible

How I cleanse: My face ritual
How I cleanse: My face ritual
I have oily skin...like really oily skin that breaks out frequently and leaves me with super fun dark spots for months to get rid of. Because of my reactive and oily skin, I have a face cleansing regimen that I rarely ever mess with. Like many people, I wash my face twice a day: once in the morning and again later at night. When I first wake up I wash with KORA - Gentle Cleanser I really appreciate KORA’s washes because they’re unscented and properly moisturize my face which is something that I’ve admittedly neglected in the past due to the fear that moisturizing would make my skin even more oily. Afterwards, I spray KORA - Energizing Citrus Mist directly onto my face and then I finish off with DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel as my moisturizer. Let me tell you: Differin gel is quite literally life-changing. Honestly, I’m not sure if I would actually like the KORA products as much as I do if it weren’t for the Differin gel that I use afterwards. This gel is what truly balances and stabilizes my oily skin and without it, I’m sure the KORA products would leave me too greasy. Together, they’re the perfect balance, though. Differin gel is really powerful and can definitely dry your face out so be careful and only use it once a day as directed. At night I wash my face with KORA - Foaming Cleanser and then use THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Mist After toner, I finish off with a spray of KORA - Balancing Rose Mist and then moisturize with DIFFERIN - Restorative Night Moisturizer I really like the rose and citrus mists by KORA because of the organically pure smell that puts me in the mindset to either rest or wake up. When my pores are open after washing, these feel great to spray onto my face. I also exfoliate once a week using Dr.G - Brightening Peeling Gel which is probably one of the best exfoliators I’ve ever used. I quite literally feel the dead skin shedding off of my face as I wash but it isn’t abrasive or harsh at all. Afterwards, my skin feels and looks brighter, cleaner, and healthier. It leaves my face a perfect canvas ready for the rest of my routine. It got rid of most of my worst dark spots by the third use, so paired with the Differin gel, my skin is better than it has been in years. While my skin is far from perfect, I’m proud of the progress that it’s made and am currently happy with my routine!
