The first two pictures are what my skin looks like now😭 the last two pictures were of my skin before I started using actives in my skin care. I know my skin wasn’t bad, but I had a lot of texture I wanted to get rid of and I decided to incorporate Differin and AHAs/BHAs in my skin care and then this happened! Please help. I stopped using differin for a few days because my skin was getting unbelievably bad and instead have been using the SKINCEUTICALS - Blemish + Age Defensein its place. I stopped using an SA cleanser and instead am using the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanserand it feels great on my skin, my skin isn’t dry at all after. I top my skin ceuticals off with THE inkey LIST - Ceramide Night Treatment and a drop of The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-SqualaneMaybe I was doing too much in the beginning by using Differin, an SA cleanser, and the The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
?? The reason why I’m giving it one star is because this is the second time I’ve used it and both times my face broke out the next day! Maybe this is this just part of the purge but my skin has NEVER been this bad before😭 I’m trying to repair the texture damage this break out has caused and since switching to more gentle products my skin has calmed down a bit.

JaydenBolinI recommend cera ve, or earth to skin! Also a cera ve or cetaphil moisturizer will do you justice!!

My Favourite Hair Oil for Colour Treated Hair
Happy Self-Care Sunday 😊 I had my hair lightened 👱🏽‍♀️ last month because it’s spring here in Australia 🇦🇺 and let’s face it we all like to get out and about during the hotter parts of the year and maintain that sun kissed look. 😉 I started using JOICO - K-Pak Color Therapy Luster Lock Glossing Oil after every wash because I bleached my hair in October and damaged it. I was using The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane as a hair oil but it made my hair oily. It’s a much better eye moisturiser. 😉 I use the JOICO - K-Pak Color Therapy Luster Lock Glossing Oil on damp hair after every wash. So, every second day. I thought my colour would fade considerably because of how frequently I’ve been washing my hair. I usually wash my hair every 4 days. But my #nofilter photo shows my hair after 4 weeks.👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 I admit 🙋🏽‍♀️ I shampooed and conditioned 🧖🏽‍♀️ with: 🧚‍♀️ JOICO - K-Pak Color Therapy Color-Protecting Shampoo and 🧚‍♀️ JOICO - K-Pak Color Therapy Color-Protecting Conditioner 🧚‍♀️ Blow dried my hair and used a curling iron to highlight the colour. But considering it’s been four weeks since I had my dark brown hair lightened, I think my colours holding and looks pretty good. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Would love to know what you think? Comment yes 👍 or No 👎 below 😉 Have a great day! Jade 😊

Active 🆚 Inactive Ingredients Explained
I’ve always wondered what active ingredients were. I’d assumed they were completely synthetic 🧬. Well because of my Cherie journey, I’m starting to get an idea 💡 Active ingredients are the ingredients contained in products that work to address a particular skin concern. 👍 The ingredients have supposedly been scientifically proven to actually have the desired effect. So, active skincare means that the hero ingredients actually penetrate the surface layers to treat the deeper cells, which is how you see results. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Self.com lists the most common types of topical actives you'll come across for specific skin issues:  Signs of aging: SPF-boosting ingredients like zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, avobenzone, oxybenzone, vitamin A/retinoids, vitamin C 👏🏽👏🏽 👏🏽 Dryness: hyaluronic acid, vitamin E. Pigmentation issues: kojic acid, AHAs, BHA, hydroquinone, vitamin C Acne: vitamin A/retinoids, salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, azelaic acid Rosacea: various antibiotics, azelaic acid, sulfur Psoriasis: steroids, vitamin A/retinoids, vitamin D, salicylic acid, urea, lactic acid, anthralin, tacrolimus, pimecrolimus Eczema: steroids, tacrolimus, pimecrolimus What many people don’t realise is that some of the skincare products they buy are full of filler ingredients or ‘inactive ingredients’. Inactive” ingredients aren't really inactive per se, they provide support for the active ingredient or lend benefits like hydration. Paulas Choice says, “In most cases, ingredients are listed in descending order of concentration—in other words, the ingredients present in the highest concentrations top the list, and so on”. I have loads of products with active ingredients but some examples i could tag include: TruSkin - Vitamin C Serum The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Daily Scrub The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane I use this as a hair treatment because oil based products aren’t great for my combination skin. Hope you’ve had a great day and hit me up by commenting below if you have any questions 😁 Jade

Skin Journey/ Help me with my Pigmentation ?!
If you’ve read my previous post, you would know that I’ve always had cystic acne growing up. Now, I tend to only get acne with stress/ hormones - but having to wear a mask this pandemic has definitely taken a toll on my skin. The first picture on the left was taken in September 15th! The second photo was taken today. One piece of advice I can give everyone is DON’T USE DRUG STORE PRODUCTS. Even though they are a great price point they were so damaging in my skin. Do a lot of research before putting something in your face because it will save your skin in the long run! Everyone’s skin is different but here are the products/ treatments I’ve used to help my skin. I hope this helps! : Morpheus8 (1:45 hours) Alumier Purifying Cleanser Alumier Enzyme Peel Alumier Rentol .05 Alumier Ultra Rich Moisturizer (Night) Skin Better Hydrating Boosting Cream (Day) The Ordinary AHA/ BHA Peel I really need help with the redness/ hyperpigmentation so if anyone has any products that may help, please let me know! The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

HELP I’ve tried everything!
I’ve been trying to take extra care of my skin for the past 4 months but nothing seems to be working. Morning routine: CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 for Face with Zinc Oxide Night routine: THE FACE SHOP - Rice Water Bright, Light Cleansing Oil CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% CeraVe - SA Lotion For Rough & Bumpy Skin pura d'or - 100% Rosehip Seed Oil Every few nights, I alternate between Paula’s Choice 2% BHA exfoliant and the CeraVe Resurfacing Retinol in place of The Ordinary Niacinamide. In addition to this routine, I wash my pillow case every week, eat relatively healthy, and don’t wear any makeup. I also use The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solutiononce a week for 10 minutes. I have acne-prone combination skin. My struggles are acne scars and bumps/texture on my cheeks. I’d especially like to know how to get rid of the bumps and what’s causing them. I also recently abstained from my actives for 2 weeks in hopes of my skin clearing up but that obviously didn’t work. I’ve been using my CeraVe products for almost 2 years. My skin only started breaking out more once I incorporated more products little by little. I don’t think this is considered purging because this has been going on for 3 months. I also don’t think this is maskne because I rarely leave my house. PLS HELP! I feel like I’ve done all I can. I can’t even see a dermatologist because I don’t have insurance. #help #helpmyskin

✅✅Worth repurchasing!Ideal serum for the acne skin!
When I think about the different products I’ve tried over the past year or so, this one stands out as a clear favorite.  This was one of the first products in a long time that grabbed my attention and made me not want to do any other routine that didn’t include this. It is that good for the acne skin. I think this product doesn’t market itself very well because when I saw the bottle label I thought this was a salicylic acid treatment since that was what was so prominent on the package. Basically I thought it was a spot treatment and I wasn’t too interested in it because I usually like to have at least 2% salicylic acid as a spot treatment (and this has 1.5%). But I am really glad I took a closer look at the ingredients and really gave this a try because it is one of my favorite products I’ve tried. And for what its worth, I have never once used it as a spot treatment. What does it do? As the name suggests, it is for someone that cares about reducing fine lines and wrinkles as well as preventing blemishes. It is also designed to inhibit excess sebum production (which was key for someone like me that always finds themselves a bit too shiny by midday) and minimize hyperpigmentation. In a nutshell, it exfoliates skin, decongests pores and refines the skin’s surface. Where I have seen the biggest improvement is in texture on my skin and the regulation of sebum.  At the end of this post I will go into detail about some empirical research that compared this product to a prescription acne medication and a prescription retinol. Briefly, here are some of the findings. Something to note is that, except for the reduction of pustules which showed improvements by week 1, all other findings took at least 4 weeks with the most effects by week 8.  I will add that I saw some clearing up of my skin after a week or so, but I really didn’t see any major results until around week 4 or 5 (and I was using it almost daily). Evidence suggests that Blemish + Age Defense has been effective at: Reducing sebum production Improving fine lines Reducing pustules and papules Reducing acne lesions Improving skin tone (clarity) Improving dullness, blotchiness Improving skin roughness How did I use it? When I started using this, I stopped using all other acids and retinol because I was a little concerned that using this plus other potent actives would be too much for my skin. I used it morning and night for about 2 weeks and would apply a couple drops to my entire face after cleansing. And then I followed it up with a hydrating and nourishing routine. After 2 weeks I dropped down to just using this at night and I would sometimes use a BHA toner in the morning (although I found that I didn’t really need it). I was really shocked at how great my skin looked. The texture on my forehead cleared up and I felt less oily, my skin felt smooth and had a more even tone.  I started to rotate this with retinol (using this on the nights that I didn’t use a retinol) and my skin responded nicely.  I personally never felt like it dried me out or sensitized me but I was very cautious to always ensure my routines added back in a lot of moisture. After using it for 6 weeks I started to drop down to only using this once or twice a week and that has been working perfectly until I just ran out of my bottle. Who should use it? People that are concerned with both signs of aging, acne and blemishes/ skin texture. People with dry skin or with allergies to alcohol denat will want to avoid this.

Quick lil skin update
Phew my skin has calmed down so much since the last time I posted 10 days ago. I cannot even explain how bad purging was for me. I realized I had so much gunk clogged in my pores it was insane! My skin is finally calming down and getting smoother. Not completely, still have hyperpigmentation and some small comedones but I feel like I’m finally over the worst part🤞🏽😅 My current skin care routine definitely feels less harsh than what I was using in the beginning and is as follows: AM Routine: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser Gentle on my skin in the morning, not stripping or drying but kinda pricey I feel like you could find a similar, cheaper option SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C + Turmeric Face OilJust started using this for the past week so I can’t tell if it’s doing anything yet but it’s fast absorbing AND it’s THD Ascorbate (as opposed to Ascorbic Acid) meaning it’s more stable, can be mixed with niacinamide and other higher pH ingredients AND has a longer shelf-life The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HAAlso just started using this so not sure if it’s doing anything CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin A+, love to death elta md SKINCARE - UV Daily Broad-Spectrum SPF 40 Another ride or die🤞🏽 PM Routine: BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Antioxidant Cleansing Oil I’ve learned that I love cleansing OILS as opposed to balms but there are cheaper options out there ☺️ CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin Started using this again at night and so glad I did! It really feels like it’s cleaning and getting into my pores 🧼 (key: after washing my face for a minute I let the wash sit for another minute or 2 to let the SA really sink in) SKINCEUTICALS - Blemish + Age Defense MY HOLY GRAIL.

CERAMIDES for skin repair💧
I think ceramides are an extremely underrated & underutilized ingredient in skincare. ✨Ceramides are naturally found in our skin— they are the lipids (fats) in the uppermost layer of the skin. Think of them as the glue between your skin cells. They are part of the protective layer that prevents moisture loss & protects the skin from environmental stressors. ✨We need ceramides in skincare because: aging skin, environmental stressors (sun damage, pollution) and overuse of acids can deplete the natural ceramides we have. Two of my favorites at the moment: THE inkey LIST - Ceramide Night Treatment 💧Thick gel-like texture 💧Absorbs into the skin Ingredients: Aqua (Water/ Eau), Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Benzyl Alcohol, Squalane, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Sodium PCA, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Sodium Lactate, Arginine, Aspartic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Gluconate, PCA, Polysorbate 60, Dehydroacetic Acid, Ceramide NP, Glycine, Alanine, Sorbitan Isostearate, Ceramide AP, Phytosphingosine, Serine, Cholesterol, Valine, Xanthan Gum, Isoleucine, Proline, Threonine, Histidine, Phenylalanine, Ceramide EOP. CeraVe - Healing Ointment 💧More of an occlusive 💧Does not fully sink into skin 💧Greasy texture Ingredients: Petrolatum, Paraffinum Liquidum / Mineral Oil / Huile Minerale, Paraffin, Ozokerite, Dimethicone, Aqua / Water / Eau, Ceramide Np, Ceramide Ap, Ceramide Eop, Carbomer, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Proline, Cholesterol, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tocopherol, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, Pantolactone, Phytosphingosine, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin From my notes above, I feel like it sounds as though I prefer one over the other. I love these both for different reasons, and I use them together! 🤍Ceramide Night Treatment: Although this says night treatment, I think if you have a damaged skin barrier you would benefit applying this am and pm. I find if you use a small amount it absorbs and does not leave you greasy. Feels plumping & hydrating, good for layering. Go thick at night! 🤍Healing Ointment: I first heard about this product thanks to Reddit and #sluglife, which is basically applying an occlusive (like Vaseline) at the end of your routine to seal it in & protect the skin. I've been using it ever since. Not only to I apply it almost every night but it has replaced my chapsticks (no longer addicted) and it works WONDERS to heal blemishes , cuts & wounds (it's an occlusive, so it lets your skin heal). When looking at ingredients, the Inkey List looks (& feels irl) more cosmetically elegant. However, don't discount the Cerave. While they're not dupes, they both have ceramides & HA, and work to protect the skin. I've repurchased the Cerave many times. Have you tried these? ⤵️Let's chat!

Good cleanser, not quite great
I’ve been using YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser since April and thought I’d share my thoughts! Pros: All natural ingredients make this a super light and clean feeling cleanser. It has an amazing fresh smell from the plants inside of it. It leaves your skin smooth and soft and doesn’t leave a filmy residue on the skin. It also has helped the redness on my face a lot. Also I love the glass bottle because you know when my it’s running low. The other great thing is that you don’t need a lot of it, one pump can clean your face because it’s consistency is a little between a gel and a liquid cleanser (just a warning though, it doesn’t really lather). Cons: This is advertised to help take makeup off as well as cleanse and I don’t think that’s really true. It does take off foundation but not mascara or darker makeup. Further on that, I wouldn’t use it as a 2 in 1 makeup removing cleanser because it doesn’t have the power to do both. I think if you did this in a double cleansing skincare routine it’d be great but not on its own. For me, the price was also a con because it’s a little pricey ($36, and I’m a college student) but I have really sensitive skin so I thought I’d try it. While it’s calmed the redness on my face I haven’t noticed any relief in clogged pores or acne since I’ve started it (to be fair though I don’t know how much of it is just maskne). It makes my face feel clean but not deep cleaned. I personally like something that is a little stronger and will swap back to something with some type of acid in it to help with the clogged pores and blemishes. Overall, this is a great product if you have sensitive skin and dullness but it doesn’t have the operating power if you struggle with clogged pores, blemishes, or have combination skin.

Daytime skin care routine!
I like to keep my daytime routine super simple. First I wash my face with YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser which is I find perfect for my combination skin! Non stripping but yet still makes my skin feel clean. SUMMER FRIDAYS - CC Me Vitamin C Serum I’ve used this for almost 2 months. I only rated it a 3 star because honestly I don’t see it making a huge change in my skin. It does brighten and help with dullness a little. but I don’t see a change in my dark spots. I will use this up but I wouldn’t be re buying it. I’m personally just not a huge fan of it. GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture CreamI recently just got this hence why I didn’t rate it! It smells amazing just like bananas. It’s nice medium thickness moisturizer. So far I don’t find it super thick on my skin and it doesn’t make my t zone look oily. From what I’ve tried I’d rate it a 4 star. I don’t think this will be enough moisture for me once winter comes but I do think this will perfect for summer. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I love this sunscreen doesn’t make my face feel oily and doesn’t break me out. Also I love using this under makeup. If you don’t like siliconey feels then i don’t think you’d like this.

New Routine For My Combo Acne-Prone Skin
New Routine For My Combo Acne-Prone Skin
I have used each of these products before, but never for prolonged use or in a structured routine. Using this new routine for the past two days I have not had any new breakouts and my forehead texture seems to be improving! AM ROUTINE ☀️ 1. Rinse face with cool ( 😎 ) water. 2. Apply The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 as well as The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG under my eyes. 3. Moisturize with stratia - Liquid Gold and a few drops of The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane PM ROUTINE 🌙 1. Wash face with The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser 2. Exfoliate using PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator (I don’t do this twice a day because I broke out in awful cysts all over my forehead when overusing this in the past) 3. Same serums as above, but instead of the caffeine solution under my eyes I sometimes opt for the dear, klairs - Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Drop 4. Same moisturizers as AM! I rated many of these as 3 stars because they are good products, but not too sure how beneficial they are on their own. A lot of The Ordinary’s products seem to have a higher success rate in combination with other products! I will post updated pictures of my skin in a few weeks to see if it really does anything! ✨

Hey everyone! 👋 So I wanted to let you all know what products are good for sensitive skin and further information on it. Ok so let’s start with Paulas Choice. ▶️PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator I love this product so much. It works so well and would totally recommend this product.👍 This exfoliant is used to get rid of blackheads and shrink pores. Paulas Choice is completely okay for your skin and works within days. Next we have The Ordinary Peeling Solution ▶️The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution I have talked about The Ordinary in most of my posts before. As you all know, this product works so well based off of skin type. For example, it may work or it may not, it’s all about what works for you! I 100% recommend this product and all you have to do is use it once a week so it doesn’t damage your protected barrier. Next up we have The Ordinary Niacinamide Serum ▶️The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% This product works so well for sensitive skin and would highly recommend. This product is not only great for your skin, but it also prevents skin disorder. I love this product so much and was so worth my money and you guys should definitely look into buying this, it’s so worth it.👍

THREE WEEKS USING THE ORDINARY PRODUCTS
THREE WEEKS USING THE ORDINARY PRODUCTS
After learning about the ingredients of each product & reading so many reviews, I decided to try a few out for myself that I thought would be beneficial for my specific skin concerns [redness, scarring, brightness]. I’ll do an in-depth review of each individual product in another post, but here are my overall thoughts of these products after 3 weeks of use. The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser This has become my new favorite cleanser [alongside Fresh’s soy cleanser!] It is incredibly gentle, makes my skin feel smooth and calm after use, and has a unique way of going on the face that I have not found in other cleansers that makes it easy to wash off without having to rub on the face too hard. Will definitely repurchase. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I have noticed visible reduction in acne scarring after only 3 weeks & can’t wait to see what my skin looks like with continued use. It does have a strange slime-like texture and does produce piling, but I’ve learned to let it sit on the skin for 5 min before applying moisturizer. Will definitely repurchase. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution The mornings after I use this, my skin looks incredible. It has helped to reduce red patches that sometimes show up beneath the surface of my skin [rosaccea], and has helped with scarring. It does sting, but only for ten seconds after application. This is the holy grail product I’ve been searching for to address scarring. Just in the past three weeks I’ve seen the most improvement in my skin that in the past few years combined. I can’t believe the progress I’ve made in such a short amount of time, and it’s thanks to learning about ingredients & learning how to combine them to have the most potent effect. I will be repurchasing all products and trying out other TO products as well. If you have any recommendations I’d love to hear them!!

So, I thought I'd give skincare a shot during quarantine and it's been 2 weeks since I've used these products. Would like to say my skin has been looking better than before (just used bar soap and called it a day). I have combination normal/oily skin and one of my problems are pores. I just started using Paula's choice 2% BHA and apparently it's meant to shrink your pores, so here I am testing the product. I'll get back within a month with results, but in the meantime I've experiened pretty soft skin thus far, so I reckon it's working. I would like to have some moisturiser recommendations suitable for my skin type, as I picked up the QV moisturiser from a local chemist with no prior research (not sure if it's the best for my skin). I heard that witch hazel isn't the best for the skin and this particular moisturiser includes that, so let me know if you find any good ones. Steps. 1. Youth to the people cleanser (leaves skin feeling soft) 2. Paula's choice 2% BHA exfoliant 3. Niacinamide serum 10% + zinc 1% 4. QV moisturizer

HELP! Nothing is getting better!!
Hi, Just want some help! I’ve been using the Ordinary products, using the glycolic acid toned every other day, using vitamin C in the morning with an SPF and on the nights I don’t use glycolic acid, and sometimes using lactic acid. I use the squalene cleaner morning and night. I use the natural moisturising factors after my serums and SPF. Sometimes when my skin is dry I use jojoba oil also But my skin is still clogged! I don’t know how to get rid of it! And those bumps. I hope you can see in the pictures. I can squeeze them and stuff comes out. I was told by the ordinary rep to use ordinary products together as they help each other be more effective. I was using niacinamide for a while and it improved my skin at the start, and i’ve gone through a bottle and a half, but it wasn’t helping and my skin got worse From what I understand, I have fungal acne on my chin. I have been using the 2% Nizoral as a mask a few time a week Any ideas? I feel like I’ve been doing everything right. I was using cerave, and the moisturiser with niacinamide , and it didn’t help. So I switched over to the ordinary products. Thanks for any advice The Ordinary - Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser
