Rate my night time skin care routine! GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover
I start with micellar cleansing water to remove makeup and the days worth of oil from my skin CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin
I use the cerave cleanser to double cleanse my skin and help remove anything left from the micellar water The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
I’ve recently added this and I’m loving it so far! It seems to be helping with my acne and oil in my t zone along with my hyperpigmentation The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
I’ve been using this for a while and love the way my skin feels CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion
I’ve also recently started using different moisturizers for morning and night so that my morning moisturizer has SPF instead of using a separate SPF The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
I use the peeling solution once a week after my cleansing If there’s anything to suggest, I’m open!

Lessons learned: exfoliation mistakes
I spent years playing around with products and techniques trying to treat my dry, acne-prone skin. I didn’t even know exfoliation was a thing until a friend of mine pointed out a face scrub during a grocery trip.... Trying new exfoliation methods and scrubs that ended up not working was essential to getting my skin to where it is now! Keep reading for a breakdown of some of my early exfoliation mistakes (I made them so you don’t have to 🙃) and how I’ve corrected them in my routine today! I started exfoliating in high school because my skin had a flaking issue. I used pretty much whatever was cheapest at the grocery store: Neutrogena pink grapefruit products, St Ives apricot scrub, fruity peel-off masks, anything to physically remove my dead skin. Chemical exfoliators terrified me for YEARS after a bad experience with a low-quality AHA face wash. I resisted until less than a year ago, using scrubby cleansers and masks whenever I saw flakes pop up again. I have now seen the light of a gentle AHA 🙏🏼😇 I use The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA daily and use The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution once a week. I use ACURE - Resurfacing Glycolic & Unicorn Root Clenser when I want a gentle chemical exfoliation and still use a really gentle scrub like fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash when I need a quick fix before putting makeup on, but chemical exfoliation is my new holy grail. *I am not saying that these products are not effective, just that the way I was using them was not good for my specific skin type! I still use a lot of these products or very similar products, just properly!* And that is how I went from years of ruining my skin and not understanding how to finding my perfect exfoliation routine! Share your best mistakes in the comments!

Beginner skin care part 2 ❤️
Let’s go over more basic skin care tips for beginners that I have learned along the way! Don’t pop zits!! It’s soooooo tempting to pop a zit, especially when it’s a big fat white head. Don’t! 🛑 right there! It’s a temporary fix, but not great in the long run. Popping pimples leads to scabbing, which could lead to scarring depending on the severity of the scab. It can also cause more germs 🦠 to get into the skin, which could make your acne worse. Don’t trust everything on Pinterest!!! Pinterest has a TON of DIY skin care tips and recipes that most likely are not the greatest for your skin. It’s no secret that ingredients you find in your kitchen are similar to the types of ingredients you find in your skin care products. The problem is when people try to make their own masks or products without fully understanding how they work together. This can result in a big mess with no major changes to your skin. Homemade products don’t have preservatives in them, so bacteria can easily develop and lead to breakouts. Masks made of raw ingredients, like eggs, can contain harmful bacteria like salmonella .😱 It’s best to leave the mixing and creating to the specialists. Do Exfoliate!! You don’t want to exfoliate too much because it can irritate your skin, but you definitely want to do it 1-2 times a week. It helps get rid of dead skin cells and keeps you glowing! Rather than using a physical exfoliant—a gritty scrub or a rough facial cleansing cloth—look for chemical exfoliants like alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), beta hydroxy acids (BHA) or chemical peels. While physical exfoliants may buff away dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling smooth, the friction involved may irritate your already-inflamed skin, leading to increased redness and breakouts. Chemical exfoliants, on the other hand, help loosen dead skin cells, so they naturally slough off. ALWAYS start slow with chemical exfoliants. If you are new to these products, choose one with a low % of AHA and BHA ETC. One great product is The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution I would recommend starting out at once a week for 5 mins instead of the ten minutes and working up from there. Don’t use a harsh alcohol based toner. Alcohol can cause serious disruptions to the sebaceous glands, and how they produce oils is important to your skin's balance. "Alcohol can strip the skin of the natural lipids it needs to support the hydro-lipid barrier, one of the skin's main immune functions. THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Toner Is a great one that I absolutely love and it’s not pricey!! Hope these help! If there are any specific things YOU want me to cover in part 3, let me know ❤️

✅CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser (Normal to oily skin) - gently refreshes and cleanses your skin removing oil without disrupting the skin barrier; 3 essential ceramics, niacinamide, & hyaluronic acid. ✅Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel aloe Vera formula - cleanses and adds moisture to your skin; aloe Vera helps to hydrate your skin and the witch hazel to tighten pores and skin without drying it. I LOVE IT!! My face feels soooo refreshing when using this product. I also use this as a boost throughout the day when I need a quick freshen up from my oily forehead. ❓Bliss Glow & Hudrate day serum - niacinamide & hyaluronic acid serum. These combinations of acids are supposedly used to help reduce pore size which is why I wanted to use it. I feel like this product was decent, but not great. I believe it to work temporarily instead of permanent. ✅Miss Spa Coarse Correct (Blemish banishing serum) - Azelaic acid, hyaluronic acid, aloe leaf juice. Azelaic and hyaluronic acids help reduce inflammation, fight breakout causing bacteria and smooth the texture. This has helped more than what I thought. I needed an alternative to using retinoids because of the pregnancy. I took a chance on this one at Ulta and ended up liking it. ✨✨CeraVe Moisturizing Cream (Normal to dry skin) - MY ABSOLUTE ALL TIME FAVORITE MOISTURIZER THAT I WISH I KNEW ABOUT YEARS AGO!!!!! This moisturizer literally helps all skin types. It is a little thick because it’s a cream (creamy for sure), and I use it everywhere! I started using it for my face as a moisturizer and LOVED IT! It is forever in my skin care regimen because it definitely helped with my forehead acne when I was clearing my skin last year/beginning of this year from my job as a drill sergeant. What really amazed me about this product was during the brutal cold winter months here in Oklahoma, when I shower at night and moisturize my body afterwards, the next morning when I wake up for PT, MY SKIN IS STILL MOISTURIZED AND SMOOTH as if I just put more on! ❤️😩 I was sold! My favorite product to recommend to EVERYONE!

CeraVe's New Release Cleanser! Is this right for you?🧐
CeraVe just released the NEW cleasner - CeraVe Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser.  The YouTuber Lauren Erro, who has normal and combo skin with acne-prone, shares her reviews on the newest release product and compare the other 2 famous similar cleanser products to this one. Let's see what's her opinions are on those products! All the products are fragrance-free and non-comedogenic. Test and create by dermatologists so they really focus on the ingredients that are non-irritating, and allergy-tested. I always feel safe to recommend them to most skin types. Ingredients in common: Most CeraVe products have the same ingredients, and all three products mentioned today have these ingredients in them. Ceramides: which are already part of our natural skin barrier, we have them already but it fades as we age or we harm our skin barriers by using too many exfoliants or damaged by acne or rosacea. Will help your skin smooth and help it function as its best Hyaluronic acid: that is pulling moisture from deep within your skin and pulling it to the surface. Hydrate the surface of your skin make your skin look more plump and smooth. Niacinamide: Powerhouse ingredient for everything like acne, rosacea, oily skin, large pores, melasma, and safe for sensitive skin. CeraVe MVE technology: Multivesicular emulsion technology basically releases ingredients 24 hours that keep your skin hydrated. Now let's focus on the differences: NEW CeraVe Hydrating Cream-to-Foam CleanserCeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser $17.65/ 19 FL OZ: This product is designed typically for Normal to Dry skin which can remove dirt, oil, pollution, daily sunscreen, and makeup without disrupting the skin’s natural barrier. And contained ingredients that are the three essential ceramides, amino acid, and hyaluronic acid. Difference: This product has a creamy texture with the Amino acid that helps transport moisture through the skin. It helps with the peptides and proteins in our skin and keeps our skin healthy and hydrated. The amino acid also works as the antioxidants to protect our skin from daily aggressors like pollutions and UV damages. Lauren Erro's Review: Rather than the foam texture, this product's texture is more like a nice lather that sets up nicely on your skin but it is not thin and weak like foam. It is amazing for removing makeup and eye makeup and making your skin feel really good. It is creamy and lathers nicely. It feels hydrating but not greasy and heavy and it does not leave any residue feeling. CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser $17.38/ 19 FL OZ: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily SkinThis product is designed for Normal to Oily skin that with a gel texture. Also has three essential ceramides, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid. Lauren Erro's Review: Her all-time favorite cleanser! Really good for any skin types since she recommends the product to lots of her dry skin type friends and they all love it. Good to use it with Sonic cleanser and lather nicely which makes her skin really clean. CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser $18.99/ 19 FL OZ:CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser This product is designed for Normal to Dry skin which is similar to the new Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser. Contained the three essential ceramides, and hyaluronic acid. Lauren Erro's Review: This one is really good if you have extremely dry skin. But it is not the best for removing makeup because she thinks this one is doesn't really cleanse. It is good for double cleanse that you could use it first or second after you have already washed your face or to start the washing process. She wouldn't use it as the only cleanser since the cleansing power is not that strong. Creamy texture but does not suds up like the other two. Also doesn't leave a hydrated feeling after using it which she doesn't really like.  For the using feeling, the NEW Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser and Foaming Facial Cleanser is similar in this way while the Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser has the amino acid in it with a creamy texture but the Foaming Facial Cleanser has the niacinamide and gel texture instead. If your skin type is a little bit drier, you may love the Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser more. Hope you guys find this helpful and get the most suitable cleanser for you!❤️❤️❤️

Summer☀️ to Fall 🍂 skin routine!
🌞 During the summer months, my skin tends to be more dewy and hydrated - which is actually expected since we tend to experience more humidity during those times. However, my skin is still definitely more on the drier side and I need to use products that are hydrating! 💦 1. I start off using my FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser and working that into my skin for about 60 seconds using gentle massaging techniques to remove any dirt. Thank you LA Beautyologist for that amazing skin care tip! Remember to pat dry and never drag the towel across your skin. 2. Next, I spritz my HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Facial Toner onto my face and press that in with my hands. 3. I then go in my serums: starting off with the The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% letting that dry down just a bit, and then with my The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 - I apply them in this order because the formulas tend to pill when applied the other way around. Uggh 😖 4. My next step is moisturizer, and I am currently using the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream - this moisturizer is pretty good for those with dry or sensitive skin, but its unfortunately still tends to be too harsh for around my cheek area, which is the most sensitive part of my face. Still love it though! 5. Lastly, I go in with my BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 PA +++ to protect my skin from any sun damage. This needs to be used all year round! 💛 While I love this routine, I do need to add some extra hydration during the colder months and this is where these 3 products come in: 1. The FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner is great alternative to my toner because its a thicker consistency, and more hydrating & calming properties. Highly recommend for those with dry skin! 2. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream is a fan favorite but this moisturizer really works wonders on my skin; I love it to combat my dryness and sensitivity. 3. The star of the show, HERBIVORE - Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil is my favorite beauty product to date! 🤩 I’ll have another post going in more detail about it, but for the sake of this review I added it in because I like to use oils directly after apply moisturizer to add an extra layer of protection and hydration during the drier months. What products do you add to your routine during the fall/winter time? Drop your comments below 💕 #CheriePartner

glowing skin with no makeup✨
hello everyone! today i am showing you how i make my skin glow without makeup! tbh i hate posting this bc i look awful without makeup but whatever😂 sometimes we dont have the time to do makeup, but we still want to look good. so, there are ways you can do that with JUST skin care! the most important thing is to be aware of your skin type. i have excessively oily skin and acne prone skin, so i have to moisturize to prevent oil, and use products that combat acne. of course most people can use these products and get similar results☺️ the best way in my opinion to keep your skin glowing is to find the right moisturizer. everyones skin is different but EVERYONE needs moisture, especially oily people. without moisture, our skin will compensate by OVER producing oil, which can cause acne. my favorite moisturizer to use is The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA . its for all skin types and keeps my skin very hydrated. in combination with this, i use The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser . this is also for all skin types and is really good because it doesnt strip your skin and is very moisturizing. it feels like an oil but it is oil free, and it also removes makeup! i then use The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% . this is a great affordable product. this is for all skin types, and niacinamide is a great ingredient for all skin, but it is best for acne. it reduces inflammation and can help minimize your pores appearance over time. this stuff soaks into your skin fast and feels watery! i then use Fourth Ray - Watermelon Face Milk . this is a great hydrating product to help keep moisture in the skin. it feels like milk, and they make different ones for different skin types. this one is for oily skin. by hydrating my skin, it helps prevent oil i use the moisturizer as mentioned before, and i finish off with a face spray. i ran out of my mario badescu, so now i am using Fourth Ray - Glisten Up Vitamin C Face Mist i havent used this long enough to know what its benefits are, but it feels nice😂 a face spray is a great way to let your skin shine- and this one is shimmery so it makes you glow! the last step is to be confident:) i hate not wearing makeup, but if i smile i feel like i look a lot better. make sure to know you are beautiful no matter what. dont forget to comment and cheer! #CheriePartner

If you have acne in this area, this might be why
So for the past month my skin has really been going thru it. I’ve been having acne and closed comedones all along my cheek, chin, and jaw, to the point where my skin almost feels like sand paper. Truthfully, I don’t let it affect me too much. I know I’m a human being and acne is completely normal. So there’s no need to take it out on my self confidence or self worth that I worked so hard on! That being said it’s still my body talking to me, and it’s still something to treat! If you sprained your ankle and knee accidents happen and everything will be ok, you’d still treat it! So even though I know I’m still ok and healthy and my skin is going thru a phase, I can’t ignore that it needs treatment. I have a pretty great skincare routine. YTTP kale cleanser, chemical exfoliant 1-2x a week, top tier moisturizers and serums and evening curology! But for the past month NONE of them have worked on me! So I finally went to a dermatologist because this clearly is way above my knowledge as a self-proclaimed skincare junkie. I did a televise and paid my insurance co-pay if $20, and after sending my derm photos of my skincare and a ton of other info on my the verdict was..... Hormonal acne caused by too much testosterone production! My doctor let me know that the placement of my acne, along the cheek, jaw, and chin, is 100% hormonal and that acne that closed comodones and acne he was seeing on my face is due to over production of sebum because of my body overproducing testosterone. He also said that this is super common among women over 25! I felt relieved to finally pinpoint what exactly was causing my acne (because I didn’t change anything in my diet or routine and just months before my skin was clear) and I was prescribed epiduo forte Spironolactane, a pill that blocks testosterone He also advised me to chuck my skincare routine and just use CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser as a wash and CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion along with the AM version as well. I am so happy I went to a derm because I would’ve been trying product after product feeling hopeless! I should receive my prescription later this weekend and I also have a 6-week check in coming up, so I will let you guys know how it goes :) If you have any q’s about seeing a dermatologist IRL or online, drop them below and I’ll do my best to answer them.

First Impression Review: CeraVe SA Cleanser 🧼
Okay I finally got my hands on this cleanser! I always talk about how my hormonal acne is awful and flares up time from time so now I’m working on prevention. I got this from target for $11.99. It’s also at Walmart & online at Ulta ($13.99). I have combo skin and this is marketed for “Normal Skin”. Highlights: SA=Salicylic Acid: BHA CREW ! This is a HG ingredient for treating acne! Its made from willow bark (bark from willow trees used in medicine since forever) and has many healing properties. This ingredient is “oil-soluble”, which means it’ll penetrate your skin lipid barrier (sorry I love science). This penetrates your skin and absorbs oil & dirt, as wells as, exfoliates. Fragrence free: for my sensitive skin lovelies Vitamin D: great for age prevention, antimicrobial, antibiotic, & anti—inflammatory (all great for acne) Non-Comedogenic: doesn’t clog pores. I used this for the first time tonight and my skin was like whew! I have combo skin currently, oily in my t-zone and dry around my cheeks and mouth and this really got my dry spots DRY! I have a few spots on my cheek and forehead that I’m looking to get rid of so I’ll see how it goes. I did replace moisture in my skin 🌙 Routine: Cleanse CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin Tone PAULA'S CHOICE - Enriched Calming Toner Serum The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Eye Cream SKINCEUTICALS - A.G.E. Eye Complex for Dark Circles(will be reviewing this soon!) Moisturize CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion Cliganic - 100% Rosehip Oil ** I might use dr. brandt - Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask is my skin feels dry before I actually go to bed** I’m only going to do this routine 2-3xs a week!

Looking to add to skincare routine
Hi everyone 😊 looking to get some advice on my skin care routine. I have sensitive/combination skin. Overall I don’t mind the way my skin is looking so far. I just have minor breakouts pretty much all the time. I’m wondering if I am mixing products incorrectly. Suspecting it’s hormonal acne? I’d also like advice on preventing wrinkles as I am 26. Any advice is greatly appreciated 🥰 thank you so much! At the moment this is my routine- GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover Right when I get out of the shower I use this under my eyes only just incase I break out from it. CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin I use this every other morning. I should wash my face every day but I get lazy. I have super sensitive skin and have had good luck with this cleanser so far. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Can’t tell if it’s doing anything for me but I use this right after my shower, most of the time. Sometimes I skip this and just moisturize. I rotate between these moisturizers- The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA This is one of the few moisturizers that doesn’t irritate my skin DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream Love the feel of this stuff. Moisturizes without causing breakouts. Do these masks once a week- The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% Put this on before bed once a week. I seem to notice a difference afterwords! AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay Love this stuff!! Definitely notice a difference with my overall complexion after using. Great for my sensitive skin. Other products that have worked for me in the past, but not using at the moment- MARIO BADESCU - Glass Bottle Drying Lotion Really helps with breakouts. Most of the time I notice a difference over night. TATCHA - Violet-C Brightening Serum 20% Vitamin C + 10% AHA Got a sample of this with my Sephora points and I fell in love! Noticed a huge difference in my dark spots from acne scarring and made my skin look healthier overall. Wish it wasn’t so expensive though. DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum Tried as a sample and felt it evened out my complexion. Avène - Hydrance SPF 25 Hydrating Cream Was recommended this by my dermatologist. My skin tolerated it. Didn’t seem to notice an improvement in my skin from using it though.

Help!!
Help!!
Ok so i need help making a skin care routine here’s the tea sorry it’s so long to read. I used to only wash my face with a spectro gel cleanser and use a cetaphil moisturizer every day and call it a day and my skin is starting to get bad again. I used to have really bad skin and tons of acne but it cleared up with birth control and age i guess. I still have some pretty big pores and dark spots and dark under eyes and i recently ordered a whole cetaphil skin care routine. It seems to be making my skin worse making little bumps on my forehead. I’m using the cetaphil foaming face wash, cetaphil daily scrub, followed by elf super toner, then cetaphil night cream in the pm and the cetaphil daily moisturizer with 15 spf and cetaphil eye cream. I also ordered the ordinary serums, i ordered the niacinamide 10% +1% zinc and the alpha arbutin 2% + HA which haven’t arrived yet. Please help me build a good skincare routine, i don’t mind spending money on better products but i don’t want to buy things that don’t work. My skin is combination. Any suggestions on products that would work, and what cetaphil product is giving me bumps on my forehead? all the products except the spf i can’t find: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HACetaphil - Hydrating Eye Gel-CreamCetaphil - Cetaphil Gentle Foaming CleanserCetaphil - Facial Night CreamCetaphil - Extra Gentle Daily Scrube.l.f. - Supertone Toner

Hi! My main concerns are blemishes and dark spots, I have very dry skin so my breakouts are worse in the winter. I have large pores and I usually get pimples on my cheeks and forehead. I noticed that my forehead is also drier and my chin is darker than the rest of my face. Right now, my skincare routine only consists of cleanser, moisturizer, and micellar water. I only wash my face once a day (at night) since it gets flaky when I wash it twice, I use the Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser which is effective for my skin. In the morning, I only use the Garnier Rose Micellar Water. I am looking for an alternative to my Pond’s dry skin cream since it’s oily and clogs my face. I am also thinking of trying The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc and The Ordinary Squalane Oil. Any thoughts? Thanks!!

• I have been following this skincare routine for roughly a month or so.. I have Normal/Combo skin, and so far, I haven’t been seeing many noticeable changes on my skin. I struggle with small white bumps on my face, uneven skin tone, as well as hyperpigmentation. I did lots of research about skincare prior to purchasing these products, and I was recommended these products based on my skin type + struggles. • step 1.GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Mattifying I use this product every night to take off makeup and/or sunscreen. The bottle says to use a cotton pad, but I use my hands because I am trying to be more environmentally conscious. • step 2CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin I heard good things about this cleanser from the Youtuber Skincare By Hyram. I also heard it worked excellently for other people, so I gave it a try. It’s been working pretty well for me so far. I cleanse every morning + night. • step 3 The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA I struggle with dark spots (hyperpigmentation.) I heard this product is supposed to help brighten + fade dark spots, so I ordered it. I’ve been using it for roughly a month now, and I’m still not seeing results. I’m not gonna give up on the product, though. I use this every morning + night. • step 4The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Okay, I’m just gonna come clean and say that the only reason I bought this product is because Skincare By Hyram recommended it. But I ended up finding out it works well with The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA. I use this product every night. • step 5CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin I heard this product was good, and everyone needs a good moisturizer in their life! I have nothing bad to say about it, its lightweight, and a go-to for me! I use this product every morning + night. • step 6Neutrogena - UltraSheer Face Sunscreen SPF 60I’ve heard good & bad things about this sunscreen. But so far, I dislike it. It feels heavy on my skin and it leaves a HUGE white-cast. It also doesn’t even dry on my skin. I kinda feel like its contributing to my acne because its so thick. I use this product every single morning. • Please criticize my routine, or tell me why it isn’t working all that well on my skin. Also, if you have any product recommendations for me, please, do tell!

😏RIP Big Pores!
😏RIP Big Pores!
Large pores...ughh...I'm not gonna lie, large pores is literally one of the most difficult skin problems to get rid of🙁. Large pores are often caused by excess sebum, and it's often difficult to make the sebum level back to normal. But DONT WORRY😝! Look at these super useful tips on saving your large pores, and these beauty experts can promise you -- these tips WERK😎! @Mallory“Your skin actually looks really great! If you’re concerned about redness and pores I would look into a niacinamide serum. It’ll help with oil regulation, pore appearance, redness, and help even out the skin tone. Also, products with colloidal oatmeal help soothe the skin and redness. First Aid Beauty has a lot of products with this ingredient @spiicystephaniie“So I’m currently using the glow recipe watermelon glow toner! It helps to minimize pores and help with texture! I highly recommend it! I been using it for a month and half and my skin is looking so much better than before. Also I just started using the Rosen skincare earth cleanser, great for acne prone skin. I breakout on my forehead a lot and it cleared my breakouts in a few day’s.” @peppermint“Hey girl I also struggle with large pores so i feel the struggle. Honestly pore size doesn’t really change but you can make them look better with a good skincare routine. Try to Avoid Mario badescu products because they’re being sued for putting steroids in their products and the formulation just isn’t that great. I recommend the cerave facial foaming wash its awesome for oily skin and makes my skin feel clean but not stripped. The paulas choice pore reducing toner is a life savior and a super nice formula. The ordinarys niacinamide serum is my favorite serum ever and makes my skin look so healthy and glowing and keeps my pores under control. I use a moisturizer my dermatologist prescribed for me but any of the paulas choice moisturizers are really nice but if you’re looking for cheaper options the ordinary and the inkey list have great options. Regular exfoliating can also help with pores. I use the ordinarys peeling solution but that’s a little strong so maybe try the paulas choice 2% BHA solution. Sunscreen is also super important and I love the purito water sunscreen. Other brand recommendations: krave beauty, youth to the people and versed. I hope this helps” Now with all these insightful advice, I believe y'all have a better idea of dealing with large pores. Please leave your comments below if you have other suggestions😘!

I will let you know if the hype is a lie. 🌋

My beautiful face has new visitors. This time hard ones, and they come in groups! Three big volcanoes are trying to explode around my face and I tried the ordinary to make them fail! -Thank you in advance for reading me!- Today I did a simple routine. • Some micellar face wash for hydration and since I don’t use make up this just helps me clean the sunscreen and the morning products from my face. • After that I went ahead with the The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. I have to say that I almost fail to wait 5 simple minutes (yes, I preferred to do it 5 minutes), it was like itching or like tingling my face. But HEY! I can’t denied that my face was less red, and could see the product trying to even out the color of these volcanoes. 😯 As you can see in the pics that I added. • Then, I went ahead and added some hydration with the The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5this made me feel relieved after the weird sensation with the peeling acid. 😩 I felt my face drinking and drinking this product up. She really appreciate it. • I added my common moisturizer CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion This is the first cerave product that I tried and I fell in love with it. My skin had a BIG POSITIVE reaction to it. She fell in love with it. Looks like a very simple moisturizer, nothing like “wow!” But hey! Don’t judge a book by his cover. • And FINALLYYYY, IT CANT BE LEFTTT OUT. I settled everything up (yes, I call this my “I’m finish” product), with some fresh air GARNIER - SkinActive Balancing Facial Mist with Green Tea I use the aloe Vera one, and it’s incredible good the feeling of your face relaxing in the couch after so many acids. 🥵 I honestly have some hope for the ordinary products. I have seen many people saying it works, and that is a NEED. Well, I can’t simply be the exception, please Pray. 😩🤣 Okay, I will report back to you guys tmw. Thank you for reading me. 🥰
