Fight Acne with Retinoids and Retinol to GLOW ✨
🚨If you suffer from stubborn acne (like I have) you may want to consider adding OTC retinoids to your routine! 🔑Retinoids, a vitamin A derivative, are a key player in the skincare industry. Many studies have proven retinoids fight acne, promote collagen, reduce wrinkles and hyperpigmentation to give skin a healthy glow.

Retinol actually takes much longer to work. In fact, because retinol must convert at the cellular level of the skin, it can take 6 months to a year before seeing results. Retinol can be 20x less effective than a Rx strength retinoids.

Best & Worst Hyped Products
Before i start i want to make sure to tell you that my skin is combination with occasional breakouts. And products work differently on different people. Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid This is by far one of the best hydrating serum i have used. It is a lightweight multi layer hydrating serum. It not only hydrates but also plumps the skin from every level of dermis. It is so affordable and is under $10 but works better than some of the serums i have used costing $40 even. My friend introduced this to me last christmas and after that i have never looked back. The best thing about this serum is that my skin stays hydrated even after 24 hours. You can see the before and after picture of how this has changed the hydration level in the facial skin. And when I wear make up after this it acts as another level of primer below my regular primer too. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Prai Ageless Throat & Décolletage Cream This is by far the worst neck cream i have used. I got this in Marks and Spencer last Christmas too. While using it i did not change my other daily routine. This was the only new cream i used. The next day my neck started to itch and i could see small bumps. I paid less attention to that and i used it again that night. The next day my whole neck had rashes. It was so bad it started to creep to my cheeks too. I contacted Prai brand directly and one good thing about them was they were super nice and polite. They investigated and later compensated me with a good neck cream from another brand to soothe the rashes too. It costs more than $40 and this was the result. Never using Prai again in my life. But then again this is my story with my skin. May vary for every other person. PRAI beauty - Ageless 2-Piece Throat & Decolletage Day & Night Set
