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

Hello everybody who has hearted my posts to see my skin care journey (: This is what my skin has been looking like still using all of the same products! The only thing I’ve added is a jade roller just because it’s sooooo relaxing lol. I do have acne scars and rosacea, but I’ve noticed my rosacea is reduced when I treat my skin well. Now remember I’m also 9 months Preggo and haven’t been eating the best 😬 Guilty I know, but my skin is looking so much healthier and glowier! I don’t have perfect skin, but I do see a huge improvement from what I’ve dealt with in the past. First I still use the THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm balm to remove my makeup. Oats are very calming for your skin and reduce redness so I love the way this feels when I double cleanse. Next I rinse that off well and go in with my LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser This stuff hasn’t broken me out once and I have very sensitive skin so I definitely recommend just trying it out for yourself. After I cleanse my skin I go in with my PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator as a toner. (Only use at night) This stuff is strong, but I find using it only at night helps more because I’m not adding so much to my face. This has helped reduce my pores and also clear some mild breakouts and redness on my face. Next I go in with my amazing oil I got of amazon Cos De BAHA - Azelaic Acid 10% Serum with Niacinamide Acne Scar Removal + Redness Relief Face Now this stuff is AMAZING. I apply this with the dropper every morning and night and it is a miracle worker!! I would rate this more than 5 stars. It helps calm your skin and also helps with breakouts, hyperpigmentation and so much more. After this step I use my Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer The reason I give it three stars is because it’s just your average basic moisturizer to me.. it works, but I’m sure there’s better moisturizers out there. For the price though it’s worth it if you want something easy. Next step after is always sunscreen in the morning! Never at night for me and I use GARNIER - Green Labs Pinea-C Brightening Serum Cream SPF 30 I only have been using this since December so I won’t give it five stars yet, but this is a good 3-1 face serum with spf! One thing I like is it doesn’t leave a white cast on me. Things I don’t like is how it has a lot of fragrance and it also can burn my eyes sometimes. If anyone has a better spf to try let me know (: That’s all I do for the morning and night time and then of course use my jade roller to feel relaxed. I do use my THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream but I don’t see a difference on my under eyes. I’ll keep you all updated again soon ! ❤️
Update: my acne has reduced A LOT
I’ve been a bit MIA since my last post but here is the progress of my acne. If I were to pinpoint the main reasons why, then it’s these reasons: What I did wrong: - experimenting and using alot of different products. I was in a phase where I loved trying new products and my skin did not like that I was switching products all the time. - I did not spot test new products - overloaded my skin with many products. I don’t know who needs to hear this but a 10 step routine is NOT for acne prone skin. - drank little water each day - used harsh products without re-balancing my skin with soothing products - masked almost everyday What I did to improve it: - reduce the number of products going on my skin. I now use only a max of 3 products in the morning and 5 products at night. - drank 2 litres of water every day - used a soothing pH-balanced toner - used a GENTLE chemical exfoliant - used retinol regularly - masked only every 2-3 days Some products I use in my daily routine that really helped my skin: PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator as an all-over exfoliant PAULA'S CHOICE - BHA 9 Treatment as a spot treatment The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% to fade acne scars Products that I use every 2-3 days that helped my skin: AZCLEAR - Medicated Lotion (mixed with Niacinamide) to fade acne scars DRUNK ELEPHANT - A-Passioni Retinol Cream to bring out new baby skin ANDALOU NATURALS - CannaCell Glow Mask as a gentle exfoliating mask If you are going through something similar just know to take it SLOWLY. The skin is going through trauma and it is not an overnight success. If you have any questions I’m happy to answer.
Im 18 and I’ve been struggling with teenage and hormonal acne for around a year now, I just started getting cystic acne around March!! I do a lot of exercise and whenever I sweat all my makeup starts to run and my red blemished face is on show to everyone to see! I watch SKINCAREBYHYRAM so I do know my skincare. But I would still like some help to get rid of my redness and irritation! Ps. I always pick at my face and I need help/tips on stopping that! Here’s what I’ve been using recently: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Micellar Cleansing Water Ultra and Makeup Remover - does a good job removing makeup LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser for Oily Skin - I love this cleanser, it gets all the gunk and oil out but isn’t too stripping - fragrance free yay! The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - A must have! - Calms my redness a bit and helps/stops excess oil production The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 - Helps control oil production - leaves my skin feeling hydrated OLE HENRIKSEN - Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator - Never leaves me oily - Sometimes I have to add a different moisturizer for the dry patches because its very mattifying CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion - Simple and gentle - Very hydrating sometimes I wake up oily in T-zone PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator - Use at night - evens skin texture - bye bye black heads! PAULA'S CHOICE - Clear Extra Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment - Benzol Peroxide gets rid of large under the skin bumps before they turn into cystic acne - Dries EVERYTHING so moisturizer is a must! COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch - Life saver when I got a big ass white head in the middle of my forehead, shrinks them down over night - Helps heal the spots that I’ve picked (oopsie) - Stops me from picking during the night time Dr. PAWPAW - Ultimate Red - Favourite lip balm Okay so I think I do a pretty solid job at skincare, I’m just really guilty of picking😤☹️ Need some help with that!!!

Teen Acne Help!
I have been struggling with acne for around 2 years now and in the past 1.5 months i upped my skincare to what i currently have! I use the app skincare to organize and simplify my routine to make sure everything isn’t conflicting when i use it. Cleansers: CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin I use this 1-4 times a week at night or in the morning during a breakout, making sure to not use the PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator with it. In the mornings i mostly cleanse with water and will use another cleanser occasionally during a bad breakout. CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin I recently bought this cleanser for a more gentle cleanse without as many direct acids as my SA one. I don’t currently have it where i am but i will use it mostly at night and a few times in the morning. Neutrogena - Fresh Foaming Cleanser I also bought this one recently for a gentle cleanse for where i currently am (divorced parents) and i use it at night and in the mornings every once in awhile. Exfoliaters: The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution I use this every 1.5 weeks on my tzone and cheeks for 10 minutes. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator I will use this in the mornings without a cleanser on all of my face concentrating on my forehead. Serums: The main serum i use about once a day is the The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% because it doesn’t directly conflict with most of my products. i do not use the NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% at the same time as this. I will occasionally use the íUNIK - Tea Tree Relief Serum also. I recently bought the CeraVe - Skin Renewing Retinol Cream Serumbut have only used it once without anything else. Moisturizer: The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA I love this moisturizer bc it makes my skin feel amazing! I use it everyday and apply a pea sized amount as directed by the ordinary & deciem. Sunscreen: I ALWAYS apply sunscreen after everything i do on my skin, never skipping it. sun bum - Original 'Face 50' SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion this is my current favorite sunscreen that i use everyday. it doesn’t make me breakout as far as i know. i also have this sunscreen though i rarely use it BLUE LIZARD AUSTRALIAN SUNSCREEN - Sensitive Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30+ Those are my current products that are in circulation. my average routine is morning wash with water and apply niacinimide by the ordinary and moisturizer and sunscreen. I will use a cleanser at night with the same serum or a different one and my mousturizer and sunscreen!!! please list any tips below for clearing my acne!

PAULA'S CHOICE-Clear Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution
💙❤🖤 Color me impressed! With all the stressful events that's been happening in my life recently, my skin should've been a complete, hot mess! I almost always break out at the 1st sign of stress and/or exhaustion. But, the combination of the 2% BHA and the Antioxidant Pore Purifier, which contains salicylic acid, has been keeping my skin looking v. clear and v. happy. Additionally, the Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 is simply, amaze-balls. It's a watery, light-weight formula that is super easy to apply and leaves my skin feeling nice and matte. It does not pill, sting my eyes, nor irritate my skin. It also plays well with make up, has no scent, and protects my skin extremely well. I hope to never be without this SPF. I'm so grateful that I've had the chance to try these products (paulaschoice). And now that I'm hooked on this brand, I'm curious to try more of their stuff!!
PAULA'S CHOICE-Antioxidant Pore Purifier
Started breaking out suddenly
Skin type: Combination I’ve been struggling with acne scars and mild acne and lately its been flaring up. I have a lot of whiteheads and I use a Pimple patch on those. I’ve been double cleansing and applying suncreen every day and I’m honestly so insecure to a point where I won’t even go to see my boyfriend. I have listed the products I’m using below & honestly need help! Sunscreen: VICHY - Idéal Soleil Ultra-Light Face Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Oil based cleanser: N°7 - Radiant Results Nourishing Micellar Cleansing Oil Face wash: Cetaphil - Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser Serums: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% THE inkey LIST - Retinol Serum Moisturizer: N°7 - HydraLuminous Water Surge Gel Cream I’ve just started using the 2 serums. I use Niacinamide AM & PM & Retinol only at night. Im starting to think this is maskne cause this happened just 2.5 weeks ago. The first 2 pictures on top were taken 4 weeks ago & the bottom 2 was taken last night. If anyone can help me out with this, i’d be so grateful.
