THIS CLEARED MY ACNE IN 3 MONTHS!(IM IN LOVE )
Ok the title may be a bit dramatic but seriously back in June or July I started noticing I got serious case maskne I was very depressed about it was spending $60-100$ on skincare and it didn’t do crap :( I thought drying lotion and biore was doing it for me , and it wasn’t at all my skin was so overwhelmed with all the things I was putting on it until I went back to basics and subscribed to curology (that didn’t last long btw) the products - CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin
CeraVe: love it or leave it?

I really really need help
Ok so I have no idea whats going on with my skin. I struggle with hyperpigmentation. Wether i pop my pimples or not, It will usually end up scaring or turning darker. Its like a vicious cycle and I cant seem to get my skin clear before my period and the whole pimple and scaring starts again. So I decided to change my routine, since my old one was not doing anything beneficial for my skin. Believing the hype I decided to get “The ordinary products because I dont have to wallet to afford more expensive items and I dont even live in America to shop freely for the items i need. Here my current routine innisfree - Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Facial Foam FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser On alternate days ill use The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution And lastly The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin I use the niacinimide before the Hyaluronic acid, and i only use one of the 2 listed cleansers Im not sure if im putting to much on my face but Im feeling really hopeless and i would love if someone explained what is happening to me. Ive obviously purged when i used these products but now my skin is acting like it’s breaking out. Its been almost exactly a month and i dont see any difference in my skin
Can someone please help me? I’m not sure why I’ve been getting these red bumps or spots on my face and I’m really confused I just made a switch to the cerave foaming cleanser and rosehip oil so I’m not sure if my skin is irritated or not this is what I use The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% but i only use this on my forehead as it causes irritation on my entire face I think it was the high concentration Cerave foaming CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin sukin - Certified Organic Rosehip Oil 50ml I’m also using sunscreen I’m not sure if it may be the sunscreen? Im unsure if my skin gets irritated from chemical sunscreens
My eczema/ dry skin moisturising routine
It’s taken my a long to time to perfect my moisturising routine for my dry/ eczema prone/ sensitive skin but I think I’ve finally done it! Using all these products together helps keep my skin hydrated, dewy and smooth. No more itchy, flakey raw, red skin!! First I start with the water drench eye gel Followed by the water drench cloud cream then continuing on with the first aid beauty ultra repair cream And finally rosehip oil Remember if you’re going out in the sun avoid putting the rosehip oil on because you’ll get burnt real fast! Best to put that one on at night or the days you spend more time inside. Let me know what you guys think !
Skincare products that RUINED my skin...part 1!
Here are 10 products that I used to use and what I think of them. Check out other post showing my BEFORE & AFTER photos! 📸 These are the products/ routine that I showed my dermatologist, but there are more products that I used along with these! Stay tuned for my NEW routine! ￼1️⃣Mario Badescu Rose Facial Spray with aloe, herbs and rosewater. $7 for 4 oz ⭐️⭐️Review: Overall this product did not improve my overall skin. The ingredients are very cheap and are basically water and fragrance. ￼2️⃣ PractivMD deep cleansing face wash. $30 for 6 oz ⭐️⭐️Review: This face wash was super annoying with the tiny blue balls that they put in the scrub.This scrub stripped my skin of moisture, and I also used it too many times a day. ￼3️⃣Shea moisture Bamboo Charcoal Hydrating Gelee Moisturizer. $11 for 2 oz ⭐️⭐️⭐️Review: This moisturizer was a bouncy Jelly texture that was fun to put on my face.There was some good ingredients in the product. ￼4️⃣Thayer’s Witch Hazel Rose scented Toner. $11 for 12 oz ⭐️⭐️Review: Basically a waist of money, when you can find better ingredients than Witch Hazel. ￼5️⃣Sheer Cover Nourishing Moisturizer spf 15. $15 for 2 oz ⭐️⭐️⭐️Review: This product was super lightweight and had no white cast. The sun protection is too little though (spf 15). ￼6️⃣Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer with Salicylic Acid step 3. $6.39 for 4 oz ⭐️Review: This product would burn. Not sting, but burn, for a long time and be painful. ￼7️⃣Olay Clearly Clean Acne Treatment Scrub with essence of citrus-mint. *discontinued ⭐️Review: This product broke me out once I used it. Also very stripping and rough to my face. ￼8️⃣Basis Cleaner Clean Face Wash. $6 for 6 oz ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Review: This was the best cleanser that I had back then. Gentle but has fragrance. ￼9️⃣Differn Acne treatment gel. $16 for 0.5 oz ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Review: This product worked well, but also dried my face out. Make sure to buy a thicker cream for face and do research before buying. ￼🔟Pop Vibrating Face Scrubber mini. $25 from Tjmax ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Review: Gave my face a nice gentle exfoliation and helped deeper clean my face with the vibrations.

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.

CERAVE HYDRATING FACIAL CLEANSER - YAY OR NAY
Meh! CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser (3.5 ⭐) Let me start by saying I have dry, sensitive, eczema prone skin. I'm sure by now everyone and their grandmother has heard of Cerave, and likely used at least one of their products. I was really excited for this because it came so heavily reccomended and I am always looking for an extra boost of hydration in my skincare routine. It's definitely hydrating and does it's job as a water based cleanser but for those with sensitive skin proceed with caution. The product didn't make me break out or anything but it did sting my face for the first two months I used it, and even now it still stings my face from time to time. It's not bad by any means but if you have particularly sensitive skin, there are better options.
AM, PM, Occasional, and New Products!
I’ve been simplifying my day to day routines and working in “specialty” products on occasion, to save time and money. AM (Alllll about quick and easy!) Andalou Apricot Cleansing Milk Cerave PM Moisturizer Nivea Super Watery Gel SPF PM Cerave Hydrating Cleanser (or Andalou if I want more richness) EB5 Anti Aging Toner Curology (clindamyacin 1%, tretinoin .04%, azelaic acid 7%) Hadalabo Hyalruronic Acid Illiyoon Ceramide Moisturizer Acure Blue Tansy Oil Rotating Products Makeup Removal: Farmacy Green Clean Cleansing Balm (I know some of you swear by the double cleanse, but it’s typically too irritating for me daily) Exfoliating (in place of EB5): Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Ultra Gentle Peel (great when I feel a breakout coming on), Alpha H Liquid Gold (for when I’m feeling super lazy—I cleanse, use this, and slap on a thick moisturizer...that’s it!) Laneige Water Sleeping Mask: Great top coat to seal in extra moisture Cicaplast Baume 5: Also a great top coat, more occlusive and I love when I’m feeling super dry Acne Spot Treatment: Kate Somerville EradiKate reduces size and redness overnight. Tends to pull off the whiteheads and cause bleeding & thus scarring when removed the next morning, so use with caution Holy Grail: Naturopathica Alpine Rose Recovery Serum. This is a 7-day treatment serum that reduces redness, plumps you up, and helps bump up the glow. For use 3-4 times a year at most, so would be great to use if you have an event you want to look extra glowy for. (Who goes anywhere nowadays? I can dream...) New Products (both recommended by my skincare group. Will update) Stratia Liquid Gold: Additional evening moisture layer Stratia Rewind: evening moisture layer, supposed to help with redness too
The BEST Affordable Skincare! (All $20 or under)
Krave - The Beet Shield $20 for 50 ml Only pros with this one! No white cast, not too greasy, not drying, sits well under makeup, completely unscented, and spf 50+++! LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel $14.99 for 13.52 oz This cleanses my skin thoroughly without being overly drying or stripping. Gentle enough to be used on eye makeup too! CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin $18.99 for 16 oz Super hydrating but not too thick or pore clogging. Dries slightly matte so it works well under makeup too. Can be used on the whole body VERSED - WEEKEND GLOW $17.99 for 4 oz This has lactic acid, glycolic acid, azelaic acid, kojic acid and vitamin c to exfoliate and brighten. I use this several times a week in the morning and notice my skin is sooo much brighter since I began using it. Not irritating at all, despite all of the different active ingredients. Also love the pump bottle top THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm $9.99 for 5 oz I love that this one comes in a tube instead of a jar! Much more sanitary and easier to get out. This removes all my makeup easily, even lipstick and mascara, and rinses off without leaving any kind of film behind. indeed LABORATORIES - In-Circadian Night Mask $24.99 for 1.7 oz Okay yes this one is more than $20, but it’s sold at Ulta and there are always great coupons that would make it under $20 when used. A night mask is just a thick moisturizer, but this one can also be layered over your regular moisturizer in colder months, or if you have extra dry skin. This mask is super hydrating and sinks into the skin super well so it won’t get on your pillow while you sleep #cheriepartner
Soothing Stressed Skin 😅🤧🍂💻
School + Change in Weather + Blue Light + Anxiety = STRESS😩❗️ 🧖🏻♀️2nd & 3rd Slide: Left Pic=before, Right Pic=after/taken today!🧖🏻♀️ I’m a college student (studying Cosmetics & Fragrance Marketing) & I’ve recently had to endure two weeks of midterms. 😰😰 this meant MORE time on the computer studying (my school is fully remote learning), MORE time anxiously touching my face, & MORE time wiping the tears from my eyes lol 😂 & did I mention I’ve been working with a 6 hour time difference ?😅 some nights I have class til midnight! The excessive blue light I’ve found has been making my skin dull. And due to my anxiety, I’ve noticed that I was touching my face more often & biting my nails😅 And with the weather becoming colder, my skin & my lips have become so dry & tight 😕 and my sleep pattern has already been disrupted. 😴 I was seeing redness & splotchy patches develop on my skin. A few spots started to take form but not a lot of texture, more so irritation and stress. Now that midterms are finally over, I’ve been taking EXTRA care of my skin (and involving my boyfriend too 😊). Here are some of the products that I found that helped soothe my skin ⬇️⬇️ ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼CAUDALIE - Instant Detox Mask 🍇 The Caudalie mask has gently helped the irritation & redness while also treating the blemishes. It leaves the skin feeling nourished & moisturized instead of stripped. (My bf’s fave mask) ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼CLARISMA - Angel Sleeping Balm Night Mask 👼🏻 The Clarisma mask has helped soothe & moisturize my skin without any greasy feeling. I love to double mask & will use this sometimes after the Caudalie one. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin 🦋The CeraVe cream has been a staple in my skincare routine. I variate between this one and the CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin but recently it’s been the Moisturizing Cream I’ve been reaching for because of its richer consistency & texture. ❕And I’ve been adding a thicker amount under my eyes as an “eye cream” which I’ve noticed has been helping with dullness❕ ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 💧My go-to product! Everyone talks about this product&to me, it’s worth the hype. You cant beat the price point & results from it. 🔊Trying to calm the redness around my nose! Recs welcome 😘 ❓What do you use to help soothe your skin❓ 📱Would love to discuss in the comments 📱
Rate my Routine✨
Hi friends👋🏼 I’ve been using this wreck of a year to FINALLY start taking care of my skin! I did a TON of research over the summer and finally started a multi-step routine last month. I’d appreciate some seasoned skincare advice, since I’m still mostly a newbie 🥺 ☀️ Cleanser: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin (works well, no strong medicated scent, and it makes me feel clean right away!) Toner: DICKINSON'S - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner (not great, not bad, just an average toner) Serums: COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid (can already see a difference on my nose/chin after just a week!) DERMA•E - Vitamin C Concentrated Serum (LOVE this serum! I can already see a slight brightening of my skin after 1 week. I also love the smell🥰) The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% (Only gave 3 stars because I can’t tell if the recent decrease in acne is due to starting this or my period ending?) Eye Cream: VERSED - VACATION EYES Brightening Eye Gel (pretty sure this isn’t doing anything... I just keep using it because I already have it...) Spot Treatment: Clean&Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment (Similarly to TO, can’t tell yet if this is working or if my acne was more hormonal¿) Moisturizer: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream Sunscreen: Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 🌚 Make-Up Remover: CeraVe - Makeup Removing Cleanser Cloths (I use these on my lazy evenings) 1st Cleanse: VERSED - DAY DISSOLVE Cleansing Balm (LOOOVE. Helps get everything loose for my 2nd cleanse) 2nd Cleanse: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin *Same Serums/Eye Creams/Spot Treatment as AM* Retinol: CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum (using every night and I don’t think it’s too harsh, but it’s also not doing much?) Moisturizer: CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream (very rich & creamy!) Vaseline - Cocoa Butter Healing Jelly, Rich Moisturizing (on lips and extra dry areas for locked in moisture through the night) What’s the verdict? Are there products I should add/remove/change the order of? I REALLY want a better eye cream and have heard good things about THE inkey LIST - Brighten-i Eye Cream??I’m also thinking about replacing my current toner with THE inkey LIST - Glycolic Acid Liquid Toner 100ml. THANKS 🖤
CLEAN BEAUTY - AM routine for dry/sensitive skin
I recently completely redid my beauty routine after finding out just how many terrible and harmful ingredients there are in many daily products. I’ve been able to keep my regular routine of cleansing, exfoliating, toning, serum, eye cream, moisturizer and SPF but just swapped out for products that are clean. Below are some good ones I’ve found so far. What are your favorite clean beauty products?? ￼Cleanse: CAUDALIE - CAUDALIE Micellar Cleansing Water Love the smell and texture of this water. While a lot of micellar water instructions say no need to wash off, I like to splash a little warm water to prevent pore clogging. ￼Cleanse (only PM): pai - Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser + Cloth This cleanser truly is relaxing and leaves my skin feeling soft. It has a great texture and comes with an organic cloth to wash off. ￼Tone: NEOGENLAB - Re:P. Organic Cotton Treatment Toning Pad I just got these this week, but I like them because they’re organic and don’t require cotton pads. On first couple of uses the smell was refreshing and left my skin feeling clean. Will see how they affect my skin moving forward. Another good toning option is DICKINSON'S - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner which left my pores feeling tight, but I didn’t love the smell as much. ￼Serum: insta natural - Niacinamide Serum I’m really liking insta natural’s brand - they’re affordable and the quality of the product is good. This serum is white and less sticky in texture than other niacinamides I’ve tried before. I’ve been using for a few weeks now and acne scars are faded but pores relatively the same ￼Eye cream: FARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry I’ve been exploring Farmacy as a clean beauty brand. I like their packaging and ingredient combinations. I’ve been using this every day and it’s pretty easy to apply. Not sure yet if it’s having any effect but it didn’t cause irritation like other eye creams. ￼Moisturizer: #Beautycounter - Cocoboost Moisturizer[products]#[ThreeStars] I’ve heard great things about Beautycounter but I have to say I’m pretty disappointed with this moisturizer. For one, it still has phenoxyethanol which isn’t good for you. It also comes on with a white cast almost like sunscreen. It absorbs relatively quickly but I’ll likely swap it out of my routine ￼Face oil: SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C + Turmeric Face Oil Love love love this face oil. The smell is so refreshing and calming and it doesn’t leave an oily shine at all. It sinks in and makes my face feel hydrated. I sometimes use this oil as my only moisturizer when it’s not too dry out ￼SPF: babo BOTANICALS - SPF30 Clear Zinc Fragrance Free Sunscreen Lotion I’ve been searching for a chemical free SPF forever and really like this one!
I have been using for day time CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HAI have started using that and I started using CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin For night time I’ve been using CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream I have also been using CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin3x a week and I’ve been using The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution once a week every Wednesday I was wondering if you guys could tell me if I keep using this stuff if it will eventually work or if I should add anything to my skincare, I feel like my skin has look for refreshed when I use it so I think it’s working, I just want to see everyone’s thought on it. :)
The Ordinary-AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

PM skincare routine: 1. Cleansing oil applied to dry skin 2. Wash off oil and apply cream cleanser in shower 3. Apply toner with cotton round 4. Dispense two drops of niacinamide & zinc serum into hand and smooth into face 5. Apply moisturizing cream 6. Finish with hemi-squalane I use the Ordinary’s lactic acid 5% + HA between steps 3&4 2-3 times a week and sometimes I’ll do a moisturizing sheet mask between steps 4&5 about once a week 😊
The Ordinary-100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane
I have already posted my routine but I just want to show everyone what I use and in which order, so here they are! And I just want to say I haven’t been using all these products for a whole months so some of them are new and still watching for results. :) AM CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin PM CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream Three times a week I use CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin And once a week I use The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
The Ordinary-AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
Updated Skincare Routine for Dry and Oily skin
So this is how my face looks after 12 days of using nicinamide of the ordinary. My verdict about it is 10/10. I definitely get less sebum and less acne, and the blemishes also started to fade away. My skin care routine hasn’t change in the past 2 months and ive never been happier. AM skincare routine: -Hydrating Cleanser from CeraVe (because i have reslly dry skin) -89 Vichy Booster - Nicinamide and Zinc from The Ordinary - Moisturizing Cream from CeraVe -Heliocare Sun Screen Gel 50 spf - Eye Repair Cream from CeraVe PM skincare routine: (I use the healing clay mask 1-2 times a week) -Hydrating Cleanser from CeraVe (because i have reslly dry skin) -89 Vichy Booster - Nicinamide and Zinc from The Ordinary - Moisturizing Cream from CeraVe -Eye Repair Cream from CeraVe - Blistex Lip Medex I haven’t used makeup in month and my goal with this routine is to get my face nice and clean, so i can no longer look back and depend on makeup. IMPORTANT: -All of the products i use on my face are fragrance free. Fragrance will only irritate your skin. -HYDRATE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN this truly saved me. I heard people mentioning it and i never paid attention and look at me now lol CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% VICHY - Minéral 89 Eyes Hyaluronic Acid Eye Gel Cream
CeraVe-Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin
Am I using the right products for my skin?
Hey guys!! So I’ve battled with acne my whole life and I’ve never found that one product that really works for me! As I’ve grown older my skin has obviously changed and so have my hormone levels, where i now find that my acne isn’t caused by hormones anymore. Only when *that time* comes I’ll get pimples on my chin and forehead but throughout the month it’s pretty alright. My struggle recently has been pimples on my cheeks which I realised was caused by my makeup. I have now created a whole new regime for myself and I’ve been going at this for about a month. As you can tell, I’m full of blemishes which are still present from pimples I’ve had months ago. So my question is, are the products i’m using going to help to get rid of the blemishes and help to completely clear my skin of pimples or am I going to end up clogging myself up and cause a bigger breakout ? In the AM I usually wash my face with my Cerave cleanser, use the niaminacide and zinc cream from the ordinary and then I’ll finish with my moisturiser and sunscreen. In the PM I’ll double cleanse with my squalene cleanser and my cerave cleanser, put on my niaminacide and zinc again and finish with my rose hip oil to hydrate my skin as I’ve felt quite dry in the winter. I’ll also use the Mario badesque drying lotion after to apply to any pimples and I’ll use the AHA and BHA exfoliating mask from the ordinary 1-2 times a week. I haven’t seen a massive difference yet and I am suffering from hormonal acne at the minute but I want to know if what I’m using will be promising as ive almost lost hope for my skin at this point. I would say I generally have normal skin with an oily t-zone as well :) (Also waiting for my Azelaic acid from the ordinary to come in the mail to help with my blemishes) If anyone could please please let me know what you think it would be greatly appreciated !
The Ordinary-100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil
I want to clear the texture of my skin!! I think my skin is not in a super bad condition but there are little bumps and weird textures on my forehead which i want to smoothen or possibly get rid of! I want to try nizoral but i wanted to know if there are any other reccomandations?? this is my current routine > CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA and sometimes -> The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30
The Ordinary-Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
