My go to for the last 3 months
Okay so I can’t really say 3mos as this is only my week 2 of this routine!!!! ￼MORNING‼️ I wash with Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser so far it’s been okay, I guess u get what u pay for but with that being said my skin is soooooooo sensitive that literally before finding Cherie would mostly just wash my face with a rag and 💦 ￼❤️I then go back in with GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Water okay so I love this stuff, it don’t make my face feel nasty, I literally use a cotton pad and just wipe away what my first cleanser didn’t get!!!! ￼❤️I also take my Apostrophe - Spironolactone I’m supposed to take this daily but due to health issues I only take this every other day just to maintain my potassium levels, I’ve only been on this for 2wks and I have noticed a BIG CHANGE in my skin🙌🏽 ￼❤️I then top it off with Cetaphil - Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion it definitely drenches your face with moisture BUT it makes me oily🚱 NIGHTIME ROUTINE‼️ ￼❤️I follow all the same steps above but I add in my Apostrophe - Topical Formula So far I’m in love with this, I’m already seeing changes in my skin and some of my scarring, I would definitely recommend this product/company🗣🗣🗣If u can’t afford to see a dermatologist or your insurance doesn’t cover it, this process is pretty cool, u literally do everything over the computer💻 or your phone📲your dermatologist will make up a regimen and it’s sent to u via mail🙌🏽With COVID in our lives this was a game changer❤️ ￼Of course after my topical I once again moisturize my skin with Cetaphil - Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion
Thank you Cherie + Apostrophe! 😭💖
I was so lucky to be one of the winners from the Apostrophe Giveaway! I have actually had my eye on this brand for months, and wanted to go for it but wasn’t sure if the cost was worth it! Here is a little about how Apostrophe works! First, you go to their website, and it asks you a lot about yourself and your skin. You answer questions, and they then show you all of the treatments and what they do— I thought this was AMAZING because I was able to read up on each and every pill and topical. You then get to choose who you want your dermatologist to be! The consultation with the dermatologist (which is literally messaging them) is $20, but this will go towards the end total if you choose to buy prescriptions. So that’s a big plus. The consultation was SO FAST! I messaged my derm after I got off of work, around 5pm. I didn’t expect him to get back until the next day, but I had a prescription lined up MINUTES later, with a message from him telling me to contact him for questions and that we will meet again in 3 months! Here is what I was prescribed: Apostrophe - Spironolactonea pill that is most prescribed for hormonal acne in women. It is actually used as a blood thinner, but it blocks testosterone that causes the hormonal acne! You cannot take it if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. I have read amazing things on spiro and can’t wait to see it work. As most acne medications, it will take some time to work, so I expect by the end of my 90 days, it will be fully active! Apostrophe - Doxycyclinean antibiotic that allows things to move a little faster. This is optional and most people do without, but I chose it to speed up the process a bit in the beginning. You cannot take this long term, so I expect to use it this round, and a second round before I get off of it. Apostrophe - Topical Formulalast but not least, I have a topical that he prescribed which is %.025 tretinoin and %4 niacinimide! It is a very intense topical that can be very affective, but very drying to the skin at the beginning. They suggest to start out very slow, so I put moisturizer first, and then I apply a pea-sized amount. So far I definitely see around my mouth starting to peel, but that is very normal and will even out in weeks or months. Overall, I would’ve paid $180 for all 3 prescriptions + derm visit! This is incredible, and it was so quick. It saved me from having to figure out a local dermatologist and having to visit multiple times (and no copay!) I HIGHLY recommend this company, and will be posting updates on my skin! Thanks for reading! 💖
If I were to switch to Cerave
So if I started using the SA cleanser from Cerave and the moisturizing cream. Would that be OK or would I need to add more products to keep my acne under control. I have been using the Clearisal rapid repair cleanser, The rapid repair wipes, and the aveeno clear complexion moisturizer. There is really nothing wrong with this routine and I’ve been using it for almost 2 years now and it cleared my skin so much. But I still have still acne coming back in the same areas even though I wash my face twice a day. So I don’t know what to do someone please help. (The photo is what I am using right now) or if my routine is fine and if there’s stuff I could add please tell me I’m so tired of having acne
help my skin
Can anybody help me and tell me if this is fungal acne or it is just normal acne? The last 2 pictures is how my forehead is looking at this very moment. The first picture is how my forehead use to look before all this happened. Also in previous years I use to get little forehead bumps but they would go away so it wasn’t a problem. My forehead has never been this bad. Let me know any tips or any products that would help my situation. Thank you :)! Also I’m on a budget cause I don’t wanna keep wasting my parents money on useless products.
Fungal acne? Bacterial Acne? Both?
Hi guys! I’m so confused on whether these bumps are fungal acne or bacterial acne?? I know some of them are normal acne cause I can pop them but the other little textured bumps.. Im wondering if it’s fungal. It doesn’t itch at all so that’s what making me confused about it... thanks in advance for any/all advice!
Help Please !
My face is all clear besides my forehead very insecure but if anyone sees this please help or give tips. I recently started using the CeraVe Daily Lightweight Moisturizing Lotion and the CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser. Ever since the pandemic started, I broke out badly and it hasn’t been cleared up.
