Huge pores and oil slick T-zone?
Hylamide - Pore Flush
Hylamide is basically the “step-up” brand from The Ordinary and it’s also really reasonably priced. I love the bright and simple packaging.

Pores pores and more pores
In the series of pictures above, you can see all the usual questions and answers about pores. Pores are the bane of my existence and it’s so difficult to treat them so they look better and smaller. I was born with gigantic pores apparently which it was really hard to find out that they are genetic. You can treat them though! You just have to find the right products that work with your face. It’s time we do what we can and then decide to love our pores and understand that size REALLY DOES NOT MATTER! ❤️ Things you can do: ￼Stay out of the sun and ALWAYS wear a good spf ￼Stop smoking 🚬 (inhaling nicotine on the regular dries out your skin, shrinking the blood vessels that deliver oxygen and nourishment. This deprives your skin of important nutrients and speeds the aging process.) ￼Look for products with charcoal and clay, which draw out impurities, or other pore-minimizing serums and face masks. ￼Exfoliate Exfoliate Exfoliate. This doesn’t mean everyday but if you want to minimize your pores, this is a step you don’t want to skip! ￼Use a daily toner with AHAS and BHAS ￼The drier your skin, the bigger they look so keep your skin hydrated. ￼Use non-comedogenic products that won’t clog pores. ￼Try niacinamide My pore holy grail is Hylamide - Pore Flush I use this as my toner and it SERIOUSLY work!! See my previous review on this! What is your favorite pore product? 💭
Part 2 Oily Skin
10 do's and don’ts from dermatologists💦 ￼DO wash your face every morning, evening, and after exercise. While washing, resist the temptation to scrub your skin, even to remove makeup. Scrubbing irritates your skin, which can make it look worse. ￼DO choose skin care products that are labeled “oil free” and “noncomedogenic.” This means that products that have these labels — including cleansers, moisturizers and makeup — won’t clog your pores or cause acne. ￼DO use a gentle, foaming face wash. Many people believe that they need to use a strong face wash for oily skin in order to dry out their skin. However, using a face wash that is too harsh can irritate your skin and trigger increased oil production. Instead, look for a mild, gentle face wash. ￼DON’T use oil-based or alcohol-based cleansers. These can irritate your skin. ￼DO apply moisturizer daily. Although you have oily skin, it is still important to apply moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. Try a gel moisturizer instead of a heavy cream based one. ￼DO choose oil-free, water-based makeup. ￼DON’T sleep in your makeup. Always remove all makeup before going to sleep. ￼DO use blotting papers and DON’T touch your face throughout the day. Although it’s tempting to touch your face, doing so can spread dirt, oil and bacteria from your hands to your face. Only touch your face when you’re cleansing, moisturizing or applying sunscreen or makeup, and make sure your hands are clean first. Highly recommend products for oily skin. Hylamide - Pore Flush I personally use this and it’s amazing!! Check out my review for details 💦 TATCHA - The Water Gel This is a great gel moisturizer. OLE HENRIKSEN - Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser I’ve used this before and absolutely love this cleanser! For oily skin with breakouts: THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay is a cult favorite and I’ve used a lot! Great for oily skin. Mamonde - Rose Water Gel Cream is the best moisturizer I’ve ever used for my oily skin. Hope these tips help! Do you want to see a specific skin struggle in part 3? ❤️

YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE-Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser
My Post Workout Double Cleansing Duo
I enjoy daily workouts and activities. My post-workout double cleansing duo is complimentary of @boscia What is double cleansing? In a nutshell, it’s cleansing twice to remove dirt, grime, and pollutants off the skin. First cleanse is with an oil-based cleanser (remove pollutants, SPF, and makeup) and then second cleanse is with a non oil-based cleanser. My combination, acne-prone skin has thrived using the double cleansing method for over two years. Makeup- Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil is lightweight, which I love in an oil-based cleanser. I add to my face dry and slowly work it into a milky cleanser by adding water to my fingertips. It washers away clean and easy. Key Ingredients: ▪️Green Tea ▪️Rosehip ▪️Avocado & Olive Fruit Oil Cryosea Firming Icy- Cold Cleanser is the ⭐️ of my cleansing show! I love this cleanser as my second cleanse and as my post workout cleanser. It’s a perfect summer time cool down cleanser. It’s cool, refreshing, and doesn’t leave my skin feeling stripped. Key Ingredients: ▫️AHAs ▫️Menthol ▫️Jojoba Seed Extract ▫️ Peppermint Oil (warning if sensitive to EOs)

Thoughts on the YTTP superfood cleanser!
After hearing nothing but amazing things about this cleanser , I decided to cave in and buy the mini size. I just finished the bottle and I have some thoughts. I have been struggling with teen acne for around two years now and I am yet to find a cleanser that has good ingredients and helps with my acne and this cleanser did exactly that. Directly after using the cleanser my skin felt so clean and I didn’t feel even a hint of left over oil on my skin like I generally have with other cleansers. I used this cleanser at night in a double cleanse system after my banila co cleansing balm and in the morning by it’s self. My skin always feels extra oily in the mornings when I wake up but, On nights when I used this cleanser I definitely noticed less oil in the mornings. This product also help clear of clogged pores around my nose area which no othe cleanser has ever done. I love what this cleanser has done for my skin and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling stripped. Now let’s talk ingredients. There is no ingredients I don’t like or would find problematic in this product. There is no added fragrance and this product is paraben free which I really like because fragrance can irritate and sensitize your skin. This product has panthenol (vitamin b5) to hydrate the skin. It also contains asorbic acid (vitamin c) which boosts the skins collagen production. And it has green tea leaf extract which is a great antioxidant and a great anti inflammatory as well as a uv protectant. Another ingredient is aloe vera leaf extract which had moustrizing properties and anti inflammatory properties. Overall, this cleanser is very hydrating and great to help repair your moustire barrier. I love using it and it’s amazing. The YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser is one of the best cleaners I have ever tried. ABOUT THE PHOTO- I am very into graphic desgin on procreate so I have been working on skincare photo draws like this one! Comment any requests for photos I should draw and review next!
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE-Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser
green goodness for glowy skin 🌱
This is a small routine that I used last year that ended up being all green. Starting with a cleanser: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser I have reviewed this before and I love it. It’s such a gentle cleanser and it feels so fresh on my skin. It never causes any dryness for me and the bottle is so pretty. Next onto an exfoliator: L'ORÉAL - Pure Sugar Scrub Purify & Unclog This scrub uses sugar which I like because it dissolves down while scrubbing. It was super gentle on my skin but still gave me a nice glow. It smelled like kiwi but it did not taste like kiwi (it was nasty when some got into the corner of my mouth). It heats up a bit when you begin to rub it which I enjoyed. It never was too abrasive on my face. It didn’t really unclog my pores like it said but it still worked as a pretty basic physical exfoliant. Now onto masking: PETER THOMAS ROTH - Cucumber Gel Masque This is a gel mask that I often throw in the fridge before use for extra cooking effect. It has a nice thick gel consistency. My face definitely looked refreshed after using it and I had a nice glow but this mask seems rather expensive for what it is. I don’t think I would repurchase this again.

Recommended for sensitive skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☘️My Thoughts: Been using this for few months now. I actually had a bit of mixed feelings with this at first.
