Ordinary Niacinamide made me break out. 😫🥺

-peep my son getting in the picture lol- -Thanks for reading me in advance- As I commented before I bought some The Ordinary products to try them out. After a week of applying them according to the directions I found out some new breakouts appearing from no where. 😯 I was like “whooop” 😳🤭 This needs to be fixed. After using the products separately once again, I found that the Peeling solution and the Hyaluronic acid do good to my skin, BUTT when it was the day for the Niacinamide I saw that during the day I got three white pimples, and then during the night another 2 came out. Okay, this wasn’t normal. I decided to eliminate it from my routine. After erasing Niacinamide acid from my face, she has been responding very well, I guess I just need an extra of hydration and some spot treatment and that’s it. Everyone is different, everyone might have a different reaction to this product. Sadly, I was too happy to try it out, and I ended up disappointed. 😖 Well, these things happen. The good thing is that I learn to caught products that give to my skin sudden problems because of you guys. 🤗 As you can see MY VOLCANOES ARE GONEEEE. 👏🏻😃 So the ordinary products work, just this one my skin was not liking his attitude lol. 🤷🏻‍♀️ THANK YOU FOR READING ME. Have a blessed day. ❤️ The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

The Best Advice For Choosing Skincare Products
Hey Beauty’s 🙋🏽‍♀️ So I’ve recommended a lot of products and thought I’d share some advice on how how I select skincare products these days. ☺️ Thanks to @babesandbeauty on Instagram for the advice. Products that you consistently use I noticed that I consistently use TruSkin - Vitamin C Serum which has Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E as my day Serum. I also have The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 for my night routine. I’ve started using Truskin’s Super Serum at night and now alternate between using a natural Retinol or Vitamin A Moisturiser and the Truskin Super Serum which has Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, and Retinol. I now can’t live without my FORMULA 10.0.6 - Rise of the Foam Blemish Busting Cleanser I use this because of the salicylic acid and hemp oil as part of my double cleansing routine. I’m currently trialing products for my first cleanse. 😄 I noticed the ingredients are ideal for my issues which are rough texture, larger than average pores, dullness and my wrinkles and fine lines. For reducing the appearance of my fine lines and wrinkles I ❤️ hyaluronic acid!!!! Products that are ideal for your skin type I’m a little lucky in the fact that I have combination skin and can use a range of products for my issues. Treating the wrong skin type can lead to irritated skin, breakouts and premature aging. Choosing the correct skin care routine for your skin type is essential for making your skin appear youthful and healthy. Products that do not cause irritation to your skin barrier Our skin is the largest barrier against infection that we have. Keeping our skin healthy and moist helps keep this barrier strong. Using the proper skin care products for your skin type can help preserve this important protective layer. ☺️ Products that fit your budget and life The Ordinary creators have totally changed how we think about and buy skin care. Its allowed us to understand ingredients and offered them in ridiculously cheap formulas. It’s championed transparency in an industry that wants you to think expensive products are better. Nothing costs more than $20. In fact, the majority of it ranges at less than $10. This is largely in part thanks to The Ordinary's dedication to transparency, resulting in prices that aren't significantly marked up. Although if you can afford to spend $150 I’d recommend purchasing a Serum rather than a cleanser or moisturiser. Drop me a line about what you consider when you purchase skincare products. Is it the beautiful packaging, ingredient list or that you just saw a review and want to try it. ☺️ Have a wonderful day or evening Jade 🥂

When hydration is needed 💦
I am a dry skinned girl so I am always on the look out for hydrators and moisturizers. This is especially the case as I like to use actives in my routine and they can further dry out my skin. Hyaluronic acid is one of my go to ingredients as it draws moisture into my skin and it works well with other ingredients. The ordinary offers this serum which is great as it is super affordable and it works well with my skin. What is it: This is a hyaluronic acid serum with 3 different weighted molecules so that it can penetrate and hydrate different layers if the skin. Hyaluronic acids is a humectant meaning it absorbs moisture from the air and draws it into the skin. This serum also has b5 which helps nourish and soften the skin. Texture: This is a goopy and cloudy serum that is easily absorbed into my dry skin. Price: This sells at Sephora for $6.80 cad for 1 oz or $12.20 cad for 2oz How I use this: I use this along with my steamer to make sure that the air is moisture rich in order to draw moisture to my skin. This ensures I get the best result. Pros 👍: affordable 2 sizes available accessible effective cruelty free 🐰 Cons 👎: some people don’t like the texture you shouldn’t over use hyaluronic acid (check other products) The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 this is a super simple serum that has really helped my dry skin

Why does my skin react different night vs day?
Over the years I have gone through hundreds of products figuring out what works for me. I have finally found a good set of products that I love, but sometimes when I use certain products in the daytime (such as Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil and certain facemasks, I breakout so much worse than I do when I use the same exact product at night! I am confused by this so I have been wondering if it’s related to my oil levels throughout the day or what? Should I be using more drying products in the day time and hydrating at night? The only ones that really work for me day and night are The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and THE BODY SHOP - Jumbo Tea Tree Oil although I know Hyram has said oils are not for the face

getting off makeup and clear skin with rosacea!
okay... so I know I've posted this before, and Cherie is (devastatingly) closing down, but I thought I'd share one last post. This really works. one is a prescription and there are a couple items missing, so I'll add them to the pictures. Here is the order they say to put on skincare (as depicted) 1) makeup remover/wash (I use Queen Helene cold cream that I SWEAR by, sometimes BURT’S BEES - BURT‘S BEES Sensitive Facial Cleanser ) 2) Facewash/second face wash (I use DERMA•E - Sensitive Skin Cleanser and Joeseph anti Acne soap 10% sulfur) 3) Toner (I use THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Toner ) 4) Serums (I use a few... my prescription Amzeeq, mostly The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% , and DERMA•E - Blue Light Shield Concentrated Serum ) 5) Spot Treatments (Murad - Invisiscar Resurfacing Treatment , tea tree oil when needed) 6) Eye Cream (not pictured - DERMA•E - Firming DMAE Eye Lift Cream ) 7) Moisturizer (2 different kinds depending on how dry I am- pictured: Alba Botanica Aloe Green tea moisturizer, not pictured: skinfix - Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Cream ) 8) Retinol: Now, because I have rosacea, I use a retinol alternative. The best one for sensitive skin I found is The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion use at night only) 9) Face Oil: HEAR ME OUT: If you have oily skin, it's not the WORST thing to use an oil. As a matter of fact, it may work well. BEST ONE BY FAR IS ROSEHIP OIL. I can't tell you how amazing it is The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil , and JOSIE MARAN - Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment during the day) wear sunscreen during the day, and put it in place of retinol. I use Glossier. - Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen it's a great light moisturizer, too. And at night in the winter if it's super dry, I'll put petroleum jelly around the corners of my eyes and lips. The results don't lie, Cherie babes (: comment below I'd you know of a better eye cream.

Let’s start with Niacinamide: Skin concerns that this can help : sensitivity, pores, acne, hyperpigmentation and redness What it works well with: • retinoids • N-Acetyl Glucosamine Key Benefits: Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, regulates sebum production, increases elasticity, increases toleration to retinoids, increases ceramide productions, targets hyperpigmentation, improves enlarged pores, boosts collagen production, reduces ache lesion. It helps with a lot more there is too many to name How it works with different skin concerns: •Barrier boosting : increases ceramide and free fatty acid levels in the stratum corneum • Anti-acne: reduces sebum production and acts as a anti inflammatory agent • Hyperpigmentation: inhibits melanosome transfer from melanocytes to keratinocytes. Risks: along with any other product it does come with risks. This can cause redness/ flushing when the concentration is above 5% Overall, including this ingredient into my skincare has helped my fungal acne on my forehead and the texture of my skin has definitely gotten better. If you have any questions feel free to ask :)

Bringing to you The Ordinary (@deciem) for my #FriyayFaves and I mean who doesn’t love seeing The Ordinary on their feed? I know I do!Featuring: ✨ Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane: I absolutely adore this product, it has truly changed my skin for the better. This is suitable for my dry/sensitive skin which is amazing because sometimes it can be hard to find things that truly work for my skin. And its great for anti-aging. ✨Niacinamide 10% and Zinc 1%: On top of having dry/sensitive skin, I have mild acne-prone skin (occasional mild cystic acne). This product as many of you may know, reduces the appearance of blemishes and congestion overtime, and it does exactly that for me! ✨”Buffet” Serum: This was the very first product I ever tried from The Ordinary and I genuinely loved it. I am on my 5th bottle now. This contains many different peptide and probiotic complexes as well as hyaluronic acid complexes that help target skin aging! My skin seems more youthful looking and glowy and I notice the difference whenever I don’t use this! I am looking to try the “Buffet” + Copper Peptides 1%, if you have ever used that before, please comment how it worked for you and if it’s worth giving a try? ❤️ ✨ AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution: Ok, so. At first I hated this product. Let’s be real, if you have dry/sensitive skin.. this will burn as hell when you put it on. The first time I ever tried this, I couldn’t even bare keeping it on for more than 3 minutes. My skin felt itchy, hot and it was just overall not a good feeling. Fast forward a few months later, I love it. I realized I needed to build a tolerance to high % of acids before using this again. Once I started to commonly incorporate different AHA, BHA to my face on a more so regular basis, my skin is now loving this product! I wake up the next morning after use, and my skin is GLOWING & feels so smooth. Let me know what @deciem products you like below. 🌱 #TheOrdinarySkincare

An Ordinary “The Ordinary” Skincare Journey
An Ordinary “The Ordinary” Skincare Journey
(So this is my first post, please be kind to me, I’ve always been into beauty products and skincare but never really started exploring things and posting stuff about beauty until now!) I’m here to share my personal experience so far (2 weeks) with The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum. I originally heard about DECIEM products through my cousin, who had been raving about how cheap and effective their products are. Initially skeptical, I decided to look into The Ordinary products was overwhelmed with positive reviews here and there, with everyone raving about how incredible this skincare line is. Intrigued, I looked up a specific product that might help me with my skincare goals. I had been in what was the best skin condition of my life with minimal breakouts and relatively nicer pores, but had a constant blotchiness and redness and slight pigmentation in various places, not to mention horrendous dark circles. The Niacinamide serum seemed to be the solution i was looking for to help with brightening and evening skin tone as well as minimizing breakouts and aiding pore reduction. Sounded like a win win situation to me. Knowing I had sensitive skin, I started small with a couple of drops that I patch tested on my face and was immediately horrified with the stinging sensation I got when I applied it. I had tried many, many products in the past for my problematic skin, including the Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Glycolic Night Serum which left my skin sensitive and blotchy with minimal improvement. I was nervous and gutted. I wanted this product to be the miracle worker everyone talked about. I wanted this to be my answer. I desperately searched articles looking to see if there were any testimonials to having a negative reaction to the product and learned that some people just continued to power forward and saw results. So I stuck it out. I thought of this weird stinging sensation as an initial shock of using something so entirely different to what I’m used to and powered through. My skin was red, blotchy, itchy and inflamed for 6 days, and I was about to stop using the product altogether. From some sources, it states that you should not be experiencing purging with niacinamide. For someone with sensitive skin, I truly believe this was what happened to me, a little bit of a shock and cleansing . By day 7 my skin did a complete 180. And ever since then, I’ve seen a noticeable improvement in complexion and overall improvement in the appearance of my skin. I’ve heard that results are most noticeable 1 month after treatment start date but I have already noticed a difference with reducing redness only 2 weeks into using this product. I have no doubt that this product will continue to remain a part of my skincare routine. I hope sharing my experience will help anyone else who might have thoughts about using this product!

So you wanna try The Ord. niacin.+ zinc serum...
So you wanna try The Ord. niacin.+ zinc serum...
Here's what you should know before making the purchase. The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a fairly viscous, cloudy serum meant to tame blemishes and has been reported to also clear scars and general unevenness in your skin. However, there's one thing you might NOT have read about amongst the thousands of reviews claiming to either love the product or bash it for being something of a scam. I'm here to tell you that TO niacinamide serum is a great product for acne prone or uneven skin, but with one caveat. Because it rejuvenates your skin and rebuilds the cells from the inside out, before you see the results of the serum there will be what is called a "purge" effect the first week or so of using the serum. You see, breakouts and pimples are already within the skin days before they emerge on the surface. They build and build until finally being pushed outward and leaving those nasty zits on your face. And when you start rebuilding the skin, *all* the acne is pushed outward, giving you the impression that it was the serum making you break out. And while this is technically true, in the long run, your skin will thank you. So if you do decide to buy one of my personal favorite serums (which you totally should), don't freak out when you break out! It's all part of the plan 😎

Not the perfect dupe - Ordinary’s Niacinamide
Not the perfect dupe - Ordinary’s Niacinamide
I originally used the Paula’s choice 10% Niacinamide booster and absolutely loved it! Instead of purchasing a $50 product I decided to purchase the The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% as a dupe for the Paula’s choice. I must start by saying that was a HUGE mistake. Before I get into my experience with this product. I have to mention that I did do my research before purchasing this product. I read many reviews stating that the Ordinary’s Niacinamide was better suited for oily skin, which I know now is very true (but I was still willing to give it a try). —————————————— My experience I began using this product about a month ago. I used it continuously every night after cleansing and toning for about a week. It did not irritate my skin at all, however it also didn’t do anything positive for my skin. A week into using the niacinamide nightly, I started to break out around my mouth. These breakouts left insane dark spots all over my chin and mouth area. I immediately stopped using it. ____________ Recommend 10% I would definitely not recommend this product to anyone with dry skin. I think this product is strictly made for people with oily skin, and from my personal experience I don’t think the 1% zinc suits dry skin. I will definitely be repurchasing the niacinamide from Paula’s choice!

My Experience w/ TO's Zinc and Niacinimide Serum
My Experience w/ TO's Zinc and Niacinimide Serum
I first started using The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% in late June. I had super high hopes for it, and I was really excited to use it. The first day I put it on, I got pimples, but I figured it was purging. This went on for about 2-3 weeks. After about a month of using it, there was very little improvement, and I chalked that up to the purging wasting the effectiveness of the serum. When I finished the bottle, I decided to give the serum another try. I started using it again. I was breaking out much less than a month ago, but I was still breaking out. It became really dissapointing, and at that point I wasn't sure what to do. Then, about two weeks into using the serum, I decided to stop using the serum twice a day, and use a lot less than what I was using before. A week or two into doing this, I figured I was sensitive to how much product I was using. I kind of confirmed this by putting a bit too much on my nose one night, and then getting a tiny pimple on it the next day. It isn't the best evidence, but I went with it anyway. Now, I use the serum only at night, and use a small amount. So basically, the whole point of this is to show how skincare products are very much generalized and they do not work on your skin the same way on someone else's. Everyone's skin is so different, and it's really important to find out what works and what doesn't. It took a long time to figure out what the best way to use the serum was, and while it sucked to even have this problem in the first place, it ended up working out pretty okay.
