My go-to skincare routine when I’m in the awkward period🤫
Skin type: dry and acne-prone, sensitive in period The following skincare routine is specially designed for my period😆. As i mentioned before, I’m acne-prone skin but not sensitive most time. During the period, my skin would become super sensitive and easy to get pimples. Gentle and maintenance are my main concerns. Step one: Apply Clinique Dramatic Hydrating Jelly after cleaning. Even I’m in the awkward period, hydration is my first concern. Dehydrated skin is hard to absorb the nutrient from further skincare steps. This Clinique Dramatic Hydrating Jelly claims that no oil and help lock the hydration of inner skin barrier, prevent skin from outside pollution. The little amount would go for a long way. While using it, I didn’t experience any breakouts. But remember, if you want to try this serum, a little amount is enough. The more amount of it you use, the harder to rinse. And may lead to the desquamation of horniness. Step two: La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Cream will play the role of hydration locker. As we all know, the process of water evaporation happens quickly. To build a strong wall is literally important. Most face creams are thick and nutrient. I admit that this kind of function is good. But during the period, refreshing, useful, and calming are necessary. B5 cream meets all expectations. Due to the thick creamy texture, it is strong enough to lock all nutrients. It’s doing good for calming my pimples. If I keep using it on my acne scars during the period, scars will tend to disappear or vanish, which is surprising. Step three: To apply eye cream is always my last step. Because eye around the skin is too sensitive to general care. So I choose Lancôme renergie eye. During the awkward period, my eye around the skin seems more sensitive than before. The dry lines and wrinkles are obviously during the period. Besides that, puffiness and inflamed eyes become my problems. This eye cream is not thick, creamy texture, and easy to spread. It some kind removed my puffiness. Hydration is ok. I could feel the firming function actually. Here is the simplest and most useful skincare routine for me during the period.

How to build your routine
How to build your routine Vol III - brands for beginners and where to shop 😎 • I get quite a few questions from people via comments and messages asking where they should shop for products (might be an unpopular opinion from other Esty’s) but I do quite like drugstore skincare 🤷🏽♀️ • Here is my list of brands in no particular order: The Ordinary - 5 Piece Glowing Skin Collection , THE inkey LIST - The Pore Wonders Set GOOD MOLECULES - The Super Seven + Instant Cleansing Balm , CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin , LA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 for Dry Skin Irritations , BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water , SEPHORA COLLECTION - SEPHORA COLLECTION The Essentials Kit , FIRST AID BEAUTY - Calling All FAB Skin Heroes & last but not least my fav PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator 🥰 • I tried to keep these on the ends of very very affordable to mid range depending on the product because it’s not all bad to splurge especially on serums (antioxidants) 😉 • If you scroll down my page you’ll see I’ve tried just about every brand mentioned here - ya girl loves trying new skincare products probably a little too much 🥴 • Let me know if this was helpful and if you want a bigger breakdown of what products to try from each brand if you are new 👀 • Have you tried any of these brands?

Learning to be patient!!
On November 1st I started my tretinoin journey and it has been one heck of a journey!! After finally getting through the worst of the purge pictured here, I can finally say I have no active acne! And I think the largest player here is actually SPIRONOLACTONE. My acne didn’t start until I had my Mirena IUD placed, so it makes sense that I needed to fix the hormones. Now to handle the scarring (patiently)... Routine: ￼spironolactone 50 mg 1x a day Apostrophe - Spironolactone AM: ￼Simple - Kind to Skin Micellar Cleasing Water or just a splash of water ￼Spot treat with benzoyl peroxide and erythromycin cream ——> with no active acne I’m going to switch to cocokind - Vitamin c serum with sea grape caviar to help with the hyperpigmentation 🤞 ￼indoor day: OLAY - Complete Lotion All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 15 for Sensitive Skin ￼outdoor day: VANICREAM - Lite Lotion Krave - The Beet Shield PM: ￼THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm ￼Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser ￼Tretinoin cream .1% (3-4 times a week) ￼Hydroquinone (2x a week) ￼CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream Moisture helpers: ￼Krave - Great Barrier Relief ￼LA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 for Dry Skin Irritations

Need skin advice
Hi, I’ve asked for advice before but for some reason my skin has gotten worse. A little background information ￼I have to wear an n95 4 days a week for 8 hours for work. We have to wear the mask for 5 days before we get a new one. ￼I’ve been using Clinique products starting in December such as CLINIQUE - CLINIQUE Clarifying Lotion 2, CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Hydrating JellyCLINIQUE - All About Clean Rinse-Off Foaming CleansercCLINIQUE - Smart Custom-Repair Serum ￼I have a history of oily skin but the past couple of years it hasn’t been as oily. I’ve also never dealt with this bad of acne before or scarring. I’m not sure what to do or what products I should change or try out. Should I be using oily skin products or combination? I’m open to anything honestly or if I need to add a step to my skin care routine. Please let me know either way! Thank you
My Skincare Routine to Fix Acne-Prone Skin
I have been struggling with breakouts ever since I was a little kid. Throughout the years, I have developed a skincare routine that works well for when I am breaking out. I am sure that even those with perfect skin can sometimes get a pimple or two on their faces, and that requires a change from their usual skincare routine to help reduce the breakouts. I have extremely oily skin, and that causes a lot of sebum buildup on my face. The oils can get mixed up with the dirt and dead skin cells on the surface of my face, clogging my pores and ending up breaking me out. This left me with a lot of acne scars all over the face and uneven skin texture. My breakouts are often triggered by staying up late, hormonal imbalance during my period, or eating unhealthy foods. Skincare Routine Step One: Cleanse well using La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Anti-Acne Cleanser $20 / 200 ml LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser for Oily Skin I always come back to this cleanser when I am breaking out because it cleanses well and is very mild. It is in a gel texture that foams up nicely when in contact with water. After using it, my face feels clean and soft, and all the oils and dirt are wiped away without overdrying my skin. This product contains thermal spring water that softens, soothes, and protects the skin, and Zinc PCA that helps regulate sebum production. I did realize that my skin becomes less oily throughout the day if I use this cleanser consistently for a month. I also noticed fewer blackheads. I am happy with the price because of its effectiveness in reducing breakouts and the amount of product that could last me for weeks. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and family and repurchase this product when I am having breakouts again. Step Two: Tone and soothe the skin using Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray $20 / 300 ml Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray This face mist is super effective in calming the skin. My face immediately feels refreshed and less red whenever I use it. My skin often feels irritated, itchy, and painful when I am breaking out, so I like to use this face mist after cleansing to tone and soothe my skin. It also contains thermal spring water that soothes and calms sensitive skin. It is very affordable considering its big size. Once again, I would highly recommend people with any skin type to give it a try, and you will notice a big improvement in your skin condition. Step Three: Hydrate using Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly Anti-Pollution $70 / 200 ml CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly I like to use this moisturizer when I am experiencing breakouts because of its incredibly lightweight water jelly textures and its anti-pollution aspect. As I mentioned before, my pimples usually form from the mix of dirt and oils on my face. This moisturizer has clean shield technology that locks in moisture for the skin while filtering out the bad stuff from the environment. The clean shield technology is formulated with a moisture barrier blend of sunflower seed cake, barley extract, and cucumber fruit extract. The product also contains hyaluronic acid which acts as a natural moisture humectant. I noticed that my skin becomes less irritable and breaks out less when I started using this product despite the bad air quality outside. There is definitely less dirt blocking my pores, and the product’s lightweight texture feels very refreshing on the skin. It did not suffocate my oily skin and gets absorbed into the skin quickly. It claims to strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier and improve resiliency. Its oil-free formula leaves a non-sticky finish on my face, which I really like, and leaves no residue. My skin feels smooth, strong, and healthy with a pure, clean glow.
Daily Skincare Routines for Sensitive Skin
I have sensitive mixed skin, and once I had a hard time finding appropriate skin care products. In spring, my skin always gets dry, especially the eye region, while in the meantime some parts of my face get a little oily. And I also have occasional eczema problems. So trying over products had been my routine until I found the following products catering to all my concerns. These products should be applied after finishing cleansing. Step 1 Clinique Different™ Moisturizing Gel This product is used after lotion and before serum. When I feel too oily on my face, I will delete the process of applying serum. This gel contains hyaluronic acid and it acts as a natural moisture humectant. This gel is lightweight and cool but it does well in moisturizing. And it soaks into my skin very quickly. Both AM and PM use. Step 2 Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado I have tried many eye cream products but this one tops in my lists. Eye is an area that needs intensive care in case of eye lines and wrinkles. This is why Kiehl’s avocado works. Avocado oil is known to nourish, moisturize and soften skin. I always apply under eye cream along the orbital bone with my fingertips and then gently tab around delicate eye area until fully absorbed. I just apply it at night and my eyes get brightened the morning after. Step 3 First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream(GrapeFruit) This cream is famous for its super intense hydration. I will call it a skin protectant. My skin is sensitive, acne-prone and sometimes gets frustrated by eczema. When other moisturizing cream tend to irritate my skin problems, this cream is 100 percent trustworthy. The scent is nice. This is definitely a natural infusion. It cares my skin. I apply it twice, in the morning and in the evening as the last step of skin care.

Lightweight Jelly Hydration
Look how satisfying the jelly texture & bubbles are 😍😍😍 the Clinique ID is awesome because you can customize your base products and the cartridge to fit problem any issues you want to target! they include: •the base products have 3 different variations: lotion, gel, and jelly (pictured). •the cartridges have 5 different variations: green (irritated skin, comforting, contains probiotics), blue (reduce pores, contains AHA’s), purple (lines & wrinkles, contains whey protein), white (uneven skintone, contains Japanese angelica root), and orange (pictured, for fatigue, glowing skin, contains taurine). •this jelly moisturizer is perfect for my oily skin in the summer, but it is not enough for winter so i plan on using it up soon or using it as a serum instead! •i recommend this jelly base for summer use, but definitely try the gel or cream bases for winter! •also the price is reasonable since it is a 2-for-1 product! $39 for both the base & cartridge!

Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream
FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream Today I will be reviewing my HOLY GRAIL moisturizer! I will he talking about the ingredients and my personal experience with this magical product. If you enjoy the review please tap the like button for more reviews. Ingredients: The first ingredient is coconut water. This ingredient helps support and hydrate the skin. The next ingredient is Sodium Hyaluronate. This ingredient helps skin appear smoother reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The last ingredient I will be talking about is Alteromonas Ferment Filtrate. This ingredient Helps soothe your skin and retain moisture. *Coconut oil is not added in the product!* Personal Experience: I started using this product about a month ago along with the Youth To The People Superfood Cleanser. I have really oily skin in the summer so before I bought this using all these thick creams really didn’t help and just made my face super greasy and oily. I was watching a video by Skincare by Hyram, and he was talking about this super lightweight cream that moisturized his skin but didn’t make it greasy or oily. So of course I bought this product from Sephora and amazing results! It didn’t help clear any acne or anything, but it did help not making my face super greasy and oily anymore. Super great for the summer when it’s super hot out. I always use this after I wash my face and I can use a lot of it because it absorbs into my skin super fast. Best moisturizer I’ve used hands down. Will 100% be repurchasing this product in the future.

Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Cream Kiehl's - Super Multi-Corrective Cream SPF 30 I have used up one of this product. This is the second. It can be used for day and night, after toner and serum. I am dry skin so it is very suitable to me. The paste is thick, but the dry skin is easy to absorb, and it is not greasy after absorption. However, this cream is not suitable for desert dry skin. My face is too dry due to acid brushing in the past time. It's very painful to use this cream, my skin cannot absorb and will rub mud. But I can feel the repairing effect in the first using week. During this period, it helps my acne marks fade. This product contains Pro-Xylane, which can effectively prevent water loss and reduce wrinkles. So the cost performance is good. Tips: it will be oily when you first apply it, I recommend you guys only to use it at night as the last step of skin care. The next day the skin is very soft and comfortable. Origins Mega-Mushroom relief & resilience ORIGINS - Dr. Andrew Weil For Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion Limited Edition This product is specially for acne, pimples and sensitive skin. However, the ingredient is too nutritious, which will result in over-nourishment to your skin. Whatever for any kinds of skin care products, they only work on the surface of the skin. If it is too sticky, it will cause too much oil to block pores, and eventually produce acne and pimples. This lotion has a thick texture and medium moisturizing ability. Because the high nutritional ingredient, you have to not use other skin care products. One time after applying this lotion, I also use another cream with serum…then…I got new breakouts. Dr.Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream Dr. Jart+ - Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Cream The main ingredient of this cream is CICA centella extract. Its main effect is to relieve damaged skin and improve acne sensitive skin. However, this product contains many fragrances and essential oils, I do not recommend sensitive skiners to use. In fact, I didn't get any effective improvement after one month use. The only attractive place is the light grass smell. All three have their own advantages and disadvantages. If I have to choose one that I think is the most effective, it's Kiehl’s. Pay more attention to moisturizing before applying it. If your skin is too dry, do not use it.

Really Wanted to Love It
I recently got some Kiehl’s products for Christmas and then again for my birthday in April, when I heard they had a sensitive-skin friendly line that helped acne prone skin I was very excited! However, I would not buy this product again (see pros/cons list below). While it helped with acne and brightening, it was really too harsh for my eczema-prone skin. I have to be very selective of when I can use this product and honestly anything that makes my skin even a little uncomfortable is a no from me, dawg. Pros Beautiful texture Brightening A little goes a long way Cons Overpowering scent (like way too much citrus brightness). Sits on top of my skin. Doesn’t play well with makeup (you have to wait forever to put some on). Makes the skin appear oily upon application but really does nothing to moisturize. I’m bone dry again within an hour. Irritates my skin when it gets very sensitive. I have eczema, probably not best for those with painful skin conditions. If you have skin that’s on the sensitive side but don’t react to everything perhaps you would have more luck? Hope this honest review helps!
