Skin Update ✨✨
Okay this is a totally non filtered sun photo of my skin. Still working on minor texture this is due to my new skin routine (I posted about my morning and will post my night). I try and show my skin with new routines and products I use because I get so many ! The number one thing I will say is be consistent! I saw a post from @MelaninSkinCareAddict(great post you should go check it out) and I loved it and it inspired me to show results from some advice she saw. My last skin update was 12/22 which I showed a unfiltered close up of my skin and the breakout I had endure out of the states! I will say for texture, hyperpigmentation, and acne you need: ￼effective vitamin C serum- should have vitamin E (tocopherol), hyaluronic acid, and Ferulic acid insta natural - Vitamin C Serum Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum ￼retinol- DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel is my first go to, but now I use The Ordinary - Retinol 0.5% in Squalane GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask (I use this on nights I don’t use The Ordinary retinol oil .. 2xs a week) ￼cleanser made for you skin: should be tailored and effective my current faves: Murad - AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser (2x week) COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser (only when I oil cleanse) (3xs a weeks when I wear my night mask) PEACH & LILY - Power Calm Hydrating Gel Cleanser (mostly for nights) ￼toner: a great toner will be your friend! This is important for removing dirts and oils. If you wear makeup this is a necessity. PAULA'S CHOICE - Enriched Calming Toner Murad - Clarifying Toner innisfree - Jeju Lava Seawater Lotion ￼sunscreen: at least spf30 TULA SKINCARE - Daily Sunscreen Gel Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ELEMIS - Daily Defence Shield SPF30 ￼moisturizer: a great moisturizer is your friend! So my faves fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer at night SUNDAY RILEY - Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream during the day for hyperpigmentation before sunscreen ✨✨✨✨ Other things I love that have helped COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence I use this day and night after my toner. If you neee hydration this is my current go to! SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Acne Treatment Face Oil I now use this on days I don’t use my vitamin C in the morning. PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum This has replaced my niacinamide from The Ordinary. If you want glass skin use this consistently! CLARISMA - Namaste Glow Energizing Face Mask I use this as my daily face mask once a week. I will be posting my detailed night routine soon as I’m redoing my entire on IG 🥰🥰
I’m adding three new products to my routine! Here’s a quick overview- (I will be doing detailed posts about each of these products after I’ve used them for a while.) VANICREAM - Gentle Facial Cleanser This cleanser was highly recommended by the skincare community, especially benneiley on Tik Tok! Before this, I was using CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin which I absolutely love, but I wanted to switch things up! The Vanicream cleanser is gentle, while still providing a deep clean. It does provide a nice foam. I am wondering if it’s too cleansing to use twice a day on my dry skin, and if I need to use the Cerave in the morning and Vanicream at night. I will keep y’all updated! HADALABO - Gokujyun Premium LotionThis hyalouronic acid lotion was highly recommend by whatsonvisface (check her out on Tik Tok and IG!). I am currently using PAULA'S CHOICE - Enriched Calming Toner , which I love, but again I wanted to switch things up. I haven’t started using this product yet, as I’m not quite out of the PC toner. I’m beyond excited to start using this! It contains 5 different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to penetrate deeply into the skin. PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster I recently went to a check up with my dermatologist, which I will be making a separate post about. One of the changes that we are making is adding azelaic acid to my routine! I already had this product at home, so I will be using it up before switching to prescription strength azelaic acid. It should help with my acne and PIE (post-inflammatory erythema). Do you guys use any of these products? What do you think about them?!

Week 1 of Tretinoin and Spironolactone
For 1 week, I’ve been taking spironolactone every morning and applying .025% tretinoin every other night. Starting today, I will apply tretinoin every night. Regarding the spironolactone, I haven’t been experiencing any serious side effects. So far, I’ve been peeing more often and every once in a while I would get cramps that are similar to period cramps (I’m expecting my period to come at the end of this month). Regarding the tretinoin, I’ve been experiencing lots of purging. So many pimples have surfaced. I’ve also had some dryness, especially around my mouth and nostrils. I recently started using the CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin every morning and it’s been good in taming my peeling skin. Let me know if you guys have any tips regarding tretinoin or spironolactone!
‼️PSA: CEREVE CREAM TO FOAM CLEANSER‼️
I had so much hope for this cleanser. It literally went into my hand looking like shampoo, foamed up and lathered beautifully. The experience was 12/10! However. My cheeks had the WORST reaction. My face has never felt this burnt, flaky and dehydrated ever. Only my cheeks and under my nose had a reaction, aka my dry areas. My oiler areas (t-zone) didnt react at all. I’m soooo sad. I’m currently using the cereve hydrating cleanser in the morning & inkey list SA cleanser in the evening. I do was my fave twice a day because if I don’t by skin doesn’t feel as soft and nourished. So, that’s why I went with a super gentle cleanser for morning. Maybe even needing to use the SA cleanser 2-3x/week. I’m looking for something gentle, but will get my sunscreen off. Any recommendations would be extremely appreciated 💗💗💗💗 CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin

Wish there was an instant replay on this one!
VICHY - Pureté Thermale One Step Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin As soon as i applied to cleanse, my skin turned itchy and red instantly. I washed it off instantly and used my ceraveCeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser . People, beware of the fragrance when trying new products. *** INSTANT REGRET ***
Current Products I'm Using
I have oil/combo skin and been struggling with hormonal acne for a few years now which is mainly around my chin. I have noticed some positive changes but also some negative ones, for example I have more blackheads in areas besides my nose which I never had before. Here are the products I've been using lately. AM Routine I don't cleanse in the morning just splash water on my face and pat dry, then I apply PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist C15 Super Booster after I apply moisturizer e.l.f. - Holy Hydration! Face Cream - Fragrance Free then sunscreen Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion SPF 50 With Sunflower Extract PM Routine During the day I don't wear much makeup just some mascara so I just use GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Water for my first cleanse, then I go in with PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore Normalizing Cleanser which I am just about out of so I will be using CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanserwhich I haven't tried before but decided to buy it because of all the hype! Than I apply my toner and depending on my skin at the time I will either use PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner or I'm from - Rice Toner I have just recently purchased and starting using The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% then I moisturizer with THE inkey LIST - Peptide Moisturizer I use PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator twice a weeks and PAULA'S CHOICE - 1% Retinol Treatment with Peptides + Vitamin C 3 times a week. My skin is still breaking out so I'm gonna try eliminating certain products to see if I can pin point what is causing the breakouts and blackheads. I recently purchased a cleansing brush and I'm gonna start by eliminating the Paulas choice BHA Exfoliator and start using the brush 2 or 3 times a week instead. If that's not the problem then I'm gonna try taking out the Vitamin C. If anyone has any advice or tips I am all ears!!!
I was really looking forward to it since it has a bunch of oils and I wanted it to be a first step in a double cleanse. . . Unfortunately, this cleanser isn’t for me. Firstly, the scent of lemongrass is extremely overwhelming, and made me quite nauseous in fact. Secondly, this was quite difficult to wash off and left a film, this wasn’t that big of a deal breaker since I was going to use this as the first step of my double cleanse. But, this didn’t do a good job of removing makeup as I imagined it would (that’s ok, it’s not marketed as a makeup remover). The last straw unfortunately was how tight and dry this left me skin feeling. It also contains essential oils. It’s really too bad, I wanted this to work. . . I really appreciate the clean direction that plant apothecary has. The ingredients are biodegradable and there are no preservatives (means a very short shelf life). I do appreciate that the clean beauty movement is about reducing harmful ingredients but I don’t agree with removing “chemicals” all together because...everything is a chemical lol Water is a chemical. . . Anywho, I was really hopeful for this product as it retails for $16 however I will be passing this along.
I’ve been using this face wash a couple times a week now. This is made using essential oils so be aware there is fragrance to it. 🔅it doesn’t specify if it removes makeup, it does not. Learned the hard way and rubbed it over my eyes and my eyes started burning. 🔅 scent smells good, fragrance normally doesn’t bother me but I wouldn’t use this as a first cleanse 🔅good for a second cleanse after makeup has been removed 🔅texture is best described as a snail snot, it’s interesting but not bad 🔅 overall 3/5 for the fragrance and the burning when around eyes, and for the fact it doesn’t remove makeup
Citric Acid on Skin
Hi this is my first post and I have a question concerning citric acid. I have acne-prone oily and sensitive skin. I have my own skincare regime that I’m currently following day and night but I recently noticed that 2 of the products contain citric acid. I’ve heard mixed reviews concerning citric acid on skin— most of them negative and saying that it tears the skin. The two products that I’m using that contain citric acid are: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin And Kiehl's - Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol Free Toner So far I have not noticed any damage to my skin from these products. In fact they’ve been working really well in the skincare routine I created for myself. However I’m still concerned if the citric acid ingredient may cause long term damage and would like your thoughts.

Do you worry about acne after your workout
Hey Everyone! So these are some products that helped me feel better after working out! So the first two products are really good for sensitive/dry skin. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser THE inkey LIST - Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gentle Exfoliating Toner FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser - I use this as a double cleanse in my nighttime routine, and a single cleanser after the gym. It cleans the dirt and sweat really well. THE inkey LIST - Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gentle Exfoliating Toner - I then go in with this toner to get excess dirt off. SKYORGANICS - Vitamin E Oil - I finish up with Vitamin E oil because it’s light enough to last me until my night time shower. Now the next two products are for more acne prone skin PanOxyl - Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Maximum Strength - use this if you get back acne or just any acne after sweating. I bought it for my boyfriend who works out everyday so after the gym he will rinse off with this bad boy and everything is all good. THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser - this is the extra step to take to really make sure you get the excess dirt off. SKYORGANICS - Vitamin E Oil - Still follow up with a moisturizer because benzoyl peroxide can be very drying and you want to keep the good stuff in. Thank you if you have anything to add leave a comment below! Follow me as well to help me become more educated about all the different skin.
PanOxyl-Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Maximum Strength
Skin Barrier REPAIRED!
So on my current skincare journey these 2 products have been amazing for me, truly standouts in my routine! First is the LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Purifying Foaming Face Wash for Oily Skin . I got this at Target after watching a bunch of SkincareByHyram videos and scouring the SkincareAddiction reddit forum. This is actually the first legit foaming cleanser I’ve used and after my first time using it, over a week ago now, I immediately noticed my skin felt more hydrated, softer and my forehead bumps were noticeably less. I really love this cleanser, I love the scent, and I love the texture. It’s SO worth it IMO!! Next is thestratia - Liquid Gold . I got this after seeing it on Reddit and while actually looking into Krave Beauty products. I needed a product to help me restore my skin barrier after ruining it 😢 this was the second skin barrier saving product I used during this time and o m g. I can never be without this product again, I am OBSESSED. It is just SO good and I feel like doesn’t get enough hype, I truly have not seen much about this product at all! I immediately noticed my skin strengthened and it was such a clear transformation. I am able to use this as my only moisturizer which I definitely enjoy a lot. And no, your skin won’t be yellow after applying this. The ingredient list on this product is also INSANE! A holy grail for me 👑
☀️AM Skincare Routine
Hey guys! I wanted to share my AM skincare routine to see if anyone might have any suggestions for me, and to help others out! A background on my skin: My skin is very sensitive and can be acne-prone, but typically does very well with my current skin care routine. I also have combination skin, with some dry areas but I also have large pores on my cheeks (thanks genetics). Products: -CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin I LOVE this face wash! It really cleanses my skin, but I don’t find that it dries me out. I think it works really well for sensitive skin. -PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator This is a product that I think has truly transformed my skin! It has noticeably made my skin much smoother than it was before I started using this product, I highly suggest it to anyone with acne-prone skin. I use this product 5 times per week. -Neutrogena - Rapid Clear, Stubborn Acne, Daily Leave-On Mask I like using a BHA and Benzoyl Peroxide combo to prevent acne. I think this product is fine for a Benzoyl Peroxide product, but would certainly be open to new suggestions! -CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin This is the BEST lotion I have ever used on my face! I find it to be great for my sensitive skin, and I love how hydrated and glowy it makes my face look throughout the day. -CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream I really like this eye cream because the second ingredient is Niacinamide, which is great for under the eyes due to its brightening and soothing qualities! -PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ I really do love this SPF and use it daily, the ingredient list is amazing, and it smooths onto my skin so nicely. I do think that it may cause me to break out sometimes on my cheeks though. So other SPF suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

SAVE MY SKIN!!!
I’m 18 and my breakouts started happening when i used this one moisturizer. I stopped but it left a bunch of acne marks and continued multiple zits. I then used this serum for the acne but it also made my face break out. I stared researching skin care routines and started using Paulas Choice. Right now I only use a cleanser, toner, exfoliate (2 days a week), and then my morning sunscreen/night moisturizer that’s CereVe. I’ve been using this routine for about a month and i still don’t see a huge difference or clear skin. PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore Normalizing Cleanser PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner PAULA'S CHOICE - REGULAR STRENGTH DAILY SKIN CLEARING TREATMENT WITH 2.5% BENZOYL PEROXIDE CeraVe - Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 For Normal To Oily Skin CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
