and this is close to my period as well, the last 2 pictures. I was frustrated beyond belief since the beginning of the pandemic, and would have nothing but stubborn and painful rashes underneath my nose. I felt like there was no hope for my adult acne, and finally I saw a dermatologist. It's not perfect, but well on its way. I can't say enough things about the sulfur shampoo. a couple of them are medicated, but the sulfur soap is from Amazon. are there any other products people recommend for rosacea/malar rash and dry skin? Am I just imagining things and my skin actually isn't better and I just think it is?! let me know. I'm so much happier with my skin, now!! I also use plain organic honey as a mask on my face as a natural antiseptic. Works BEAUTIFULLY! now, the things listed below are a mixture of prescription, everyday, and once in a while.

Tour of what’s in my fridge
A skin care fridge is totally not a necessity but they are super fun to have. Things to consider before buying one is: does it fit in your budget, will it fit in your bathroom, what products will go in it? I got mine from Amazon where they range from $60-$150 cad but you can get them from tons of places. The way I use mine is to keep products cold for the experience (de puffing) and to extend their shelf life. Here’s a tour of what I currently keep in my skincare fridge. The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% This serum is great to keep cold as it ensures it is kept at a consistent temperature and in a dark place which helps with stability. The combination of ascorbic acid and alpha arbutin make for a great brightening and hyperpigmentation treatment. THE BODY SHOP - British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask This is a really nice hydrating and plumping face mask that gives a very spa like vibe. The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil I love to keep this oil cold as it increases the shelf life. This is a great hydrating oil that also helps acne and hyperpigmentation. THE BODY SHOP - Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask I love keeping this mask chilled as it helps depuff my face in the morning. This is a very nourishing mask that is also gently brightening. pixi - DetoxifEYE These are great cold as they really helps get rid of any puffiness from waking up. This pot holds 30 pairs which is great value from money. VERSED - LOOK ALIVE Hydrating Plumping Mask This is a great hydrating mask that really plumps my skin and helps when it is dehydrated. Keeping it cold makes the experience even more enjoyable. LANEIGE - Cica Sleeping Mask This is a creamy sleeping mask that highlights cica which is a very soothing ingredient. Applying it cold makes the soothing power even more effective. LANEIGE - Lavender Water Sleeping Mask This is a gel mask that feels great when applied cold as it feels very soothing. The lavender scent can also be very relaxing. grace & stella - Rose quartz face roller I love doing an evening massage, it feels amazing if the tool is kept cold. It helps with lymphatic drainage and product absorption. 👜Sheet masks ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I love to keep all my sheet masks in the fridge as the experience of a chilled mask is very enjoyable.

Accutane = complete!
I have finished my round of accutane and wanted to share with everyone! The bottom photos is what I look like after applying my skincare that I have below. My skin definitely loves it! I still have some scarring to deal with but I am no longer having any breakouts! My skincare routine: spectro - Jel Cleanser I absolutely love this cleanser. I used this while on Accutane and I did not have any problems with it so this will be my go to cleanser now. dermalogica - Multi-Active Toner I’ve been using this for about a month and my skin is loving this! I spray this on damp skin to really hydrate my skin. OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Serum I use this because this is really the only vitamin c serum I have used. If anyone has a recommendation let me know! dermalogica - Stress Positive Eye Lift MaskI haven’t rated this because I just started using this. Cetaphil - Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion I’ve been using this for months and I actually love this! I also mix a few drops of The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil with it to lock everything in. I finished off with Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I actually love this sunscreen!

Clay Hair Mask
HOW TO MAKE: 2 Tbs of Aztec clay powder and 2 Tbs of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay HOW TO PUT ON: Wet hair Divide hair into sections Comb clay mixture into hair with fingers Leave on for 30 minutes HOW TO WASH OUT: Start off with cold water then transition to slightly warmer water MY THOUGHTS: My hair definitely felt clean and my curls felt soft; however, I didn’t get as much curl definition as I was hoping for. Any tips for more curl definitions? What other ingredients have you added to hair clay mixtures?

oily skin & don’t know how to manage? I got you
this post is for all the people who have oily skin and sometimes just don’t know how to deal with it! well i’m here for some tips! I have oily/combo skin and I’ve learnt some important info during my skincare journey that I would love to share with you all 🤗 1. still moisturise it is super important for people with oily skin to keep up with moisturising ! you may think that your skin is hydrated and doesn’t need any extra moisture, but it still really does. if you don’t moisturise, or use products to keep your skin hydrated, your skin can overcompensate with releasing it’s natural oils, which in hand, can make your skin more oily 2. don’t be afraid of oils whether this is oil cleansing or any certain type of oil (rosehip, squalane etc), don’t be hesitant to use these products just because of your skin type. for me, oils have made a huge difference to my skin, especially oil cleansing! one thing to remember with oil cleansing, is that oils attract oils, and therefore are oil soluble. products like this help to get rid of grease, blackheads etc and can be great for oily skin! 3. use products targeted for oily skin I know that this one is quite self explanatory, but here are some products that helped my oily skin become more manageable! - niacinamide. this ingredient is amazing for oily skin ! it helps to decrease oil production from within the skin. my fav product is NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% , but I also don’t mind The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% -exfoliation. now with this I don’t mean physical exfoliation, but chemical exfoliation! my favourite exfoliant has to be PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator this one is my HOLY GRAIL product of them all ! I have many posts on this product so be sure to check those out for an in depth description. - clay face masks. these are good for absorbing oil and giving your face a matte finish. some of my favs are PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Balancing Oil-Absorbing Mask AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay I hope this helps and if you have any questions, feel free to comment 🌟🥰

☀️☀️We hate Suncream yet we are hopeless without it☀️☀️ UNPROTECTED SUN exposure is the number-one cause of two things most of us would rather avoid: skin cancer and premature aging. And yet, the people who neglect daily sunscreen are swift to offer up justifications, chief among them: “I just don’t like the way it feels” Widespread sunscreen aversion has led many brands to bridge the sunscreen and skin care categories, creating lightweight everyday facial formulas that incorporate antiaging and antioxidant ingredients, boast a more appealing texture (sheer! weightless!), and provide imperfection-blurring technology. But with hundreds to choose from, how do you find one that inspires devotion? My solution: Test 50 top formulas As for my personal issues with sunscreen engagement: I have a dusky complexion and very sensitive skin, ergo, my skin gets pigmentation easily; A facial sunscreen that doesn’t upset my sensitive skin’s fine balance can seem like a unicorn. I prefer moisturizing formulas with dewier results; matte finishes tend to magnify fine lines, I’ve found. I want a sunscreen that neither feels heavy on my face nor is detectable by anyone else. My ideal formula must also play well with any makeup I use: I’ve learned, for instance, that the white cast of classic zinc formulas plus blush can leave me looking very mime-y. And last, but certainly not least, it must be fragrance-free or at least scented to a barely discernible degree. Fragrance can be a sneaky skin irritant, and I would rather my face didn’t smell like cloying coconuts or shampoo. I dutifully tested a massive pile of sunscreens of every creed with all the aforementioned criteria in mind. It’s true that you won’t like using sunscreen until you find sunscreen you like using. Here are 12 to consider Best for Sensitive Skin EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46/ First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Pure Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 40elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Pure Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 40 Frequently, and deservedly name-checked by dermatologists (Dr. Marmur is a fan), this SPF-46 formulation goes on clear, is full of niacinamide (an anti-inflammatory vitamin B3 derivative), and crucially, it won’t give you zits. “I love it because it’s sensitive enough to use if you have acne, dryness or rosacea but also isn’t greasy for those with oily skin Best for No-Frills Folks SkinCeuticals Light Moisture UV Defense SPF 50/ Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion SPF 30 Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 A basic sunscreen is not a bad thing. This one feels not unlike your favorite pared-down, lightweight body moisturizer: hydrating without leaving any residue. It’s equally suitable for face and body which saves you the trouble of having to buy a second sunscreen Best for Makeup Wearers Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30/ Drunk Elephant Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense SPF 30 Supergoop! - Superscreen Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 40 PA+++ DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 Though called a serum, it’s more akin to a moisturizer—a silky, featherweight moisturizer at that. Upon application, it sinks right into the skin, has a smooth finish and won’t compete with any makeup you top it with. It makes for a very easy swap for the morning moisturizer currently in your skin care routine. Best for Serum-Lovers Solid & Striped Face Sunscreen/ Glossier Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen SPF 35 Bumble and bumble. - Solid & Striped Surf Spray, Malibu Beach Glossier. - Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen The best compliment that you can pay to a sunscreen is that it doesn’t seem like a sunscreen. And this facial formula— the first skin-care product from swimwear brand Solid & Striped—feels nothing like a sunscreen and everything like a lightweight serum. This appealing quality made remembering to use it very easy. That it looks a bit moist and dewy on the skin also helps Best for Dry Skin Vive Sana Daily Protezione/ Origins A Perfect World Age-Defense Skin Guardian With White Tea ORIGINS - A Perfect World Age-Defense Skin Guardian with White Tea The zinc-based formula is rich and immensely hydrating (it’s full of argan oil), like a solid night cream. On the skin that lushness reads as a subtle glow, precluding the need for highlighter (if that’s your thing). For the moisture-starved among us, this natural sunscreen will feel like a revelation Best for the Chemical-Shy Coola Mineral Sun Silk Crème Organic Sunscreen SPF 30/ Clinique Mineral Sunscreen Fluid for Face Broad Spectrum SPF 50 CLINIQUE - Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen Fluid for Face COOLA - Full Spectrum 360° Mineral Sun Silk Moisturizer Organic Face Sunscreen SPF 30 Formulating mineral sunscreens so that they A) aren’t so dense they become unwieldy; and B) don’t leave a ghostly veil on your face, can be a tricky business. The mineral sunscreens I tested rarely felt weightless, but this one proved to be a true exception. It has the added benefit of protecting against infrared and HEV (aka, the blue light emanating from all your various devices

my favorite sunscreen of all time
i have never loved using sun screen. i only used it because i didn’t want skin cancer or any sun damage. BUT when i started using Glossier. - Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen that all changed. I loved the dewy, but not oily, look that i got from it. I would use my sunscreen, do my brows, and maybe mascara. But with just that, i felt put together because my skin looked so freaking good! i recently stopped using it because 25.00 is a lot for a small bottle, and also because some of the ingredients could potentially become irritating to my skin. so i will list some things that i have learned about this sunscreen && y’all can decide if ya want it (: - it is a chemical sunscreen: this means that instead of sitting on top of your skin & reflecting the sun’s rays (physical sunblock), it absorbs into your skin and then will absorb the UV rays & convert them into heat. there has been some information released that suggests that the chemicals in these can cause hormone imbalance, make the skin more prone to damage, and maybe even hurt the environment. I have not looked into it that much, && i don’t know if it is based off of peer-reviewed journals, soooo...idk - contains “Sweet Orange Peel Oil”: this can unfortunately prove to be very irritating to some people. That could especially be problematic since it’s a chemical sunscreen. If the oil messes with your protective barrier & then you apply harsh chemicals to your skin...well, i’ll let you finish the rest.. - transparent: this sunscreen never gave me a while cast or peeling or whatevah. it also never made me greasy. Something else that i loved about it was that i could easily mix some of my foundation with it && make a bb cream when i was looking wretched & running late 😂Glossier. - Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen

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.

Which Niacinamide would you choose?
This is definitely not a dupe situation. These two formulas are only similar in the fact that they contain the same amount of niacinamide (as well as some texture and preservative agents). I’ve been a longtime user of The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and it does work, but I felt after my first bottle I wasn’t getting any continued results. I was also left unimpressed and looking for a different option due to the fact that this is a very tacky formula that can be difficult to work with. TO includes zinc in their formula which they state can reduce acne and can be anti-inflammatory. At $6 you’re getting your 2 active ingredients; niacinamide and zinc. PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Niacinamide Booster includes the same 10% of niacinamide but doesn’t stop there. They also add vitamin C and a BUNCH of calming, hydrating and restoring products that your skin needs (see attached ingredient list). It’s been a controversy whether or not vitamin C and Niacinamide can be used together, even The Ordinary suggests that their Niacinamide not be used at the same time as vitamin C. Many brands and consumers have disagreed. Paula’s Choice adds the protective ingredients to ensure you’ll have less of a chance of irritation. Paula’s Choice serum is a lightweight watery formula that leaves no residue and I find easy to work into my routine. I wasn’t quite prepared for the thin formula as The Ordinary has more of a tacky texture. I found it best to add it directly from the dropper to my face, versus my hands then face. When it comes to the price difference it does seem that The Ordinary would be the obvious choice. I’m not one that believes that quality skincare has to cost more. But Paula’s Choice formula offers much more than Niacinamide. You’re getting several ingredients that are not found in The Ordinary, hence the price difference. Once I’ve emptied my bottle I’ll be better able to determine if spending 4x’s the amount is worth it. I could choose to use a less expensive option and add the antioxidants and other skin-replenishing ingredients found in Paula’s Choices formula, but I have to admit, I do like the simplicity of fewer steps in my skincare routine. 😉 There are also several other options available that I’ve not yet tried. I have tried The Inkey List and it is just a tad bit less tacky than The Ordinary. Other brand options I’d be open to try are: Good Molecules $6 - formula looks similar to TO and TIL with the only active ingredient being niacinamide Naturium $16 - 10% niacinamide and 2% zinc Good Molecules $14 - similar again to TO and TIL I LOVE how Paula’s Choice lists their ingredients. Behind each one you’ll find out how it benefits the skin. This saves me a TON of time and effort when doing my reviews! Individual reviews on The Ordinary and The Inkey List Niacinamide can be found on my page. What’s your favorite Niacinamide to use? ❤️🍒

My skin improves when I don’t wash it??
My skin improves when I don’t wash it??
Hi there! I’ve been into skincare pretty heavily in the last year. Ive struggled with hormonal and cystic acne since I was 4 (there’s pictures I swear!). While 2 rounds of accutane, age, and a hundred different regimens have made my skin a lot better today, I still get acne. I’ve experimented with serums, exfoliants, toners, cleansers, and the whole shebang and I thought I was doing it right. My routine: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin PM The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution every other PM BURT’S BEES - Natural Acne Solutions Clarifying Toner AM/PM The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% PM LUÉ by Jean Seo - BALANCE AM The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution once a week/two weeks CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum PM pūrlisse - Watermelon + Charcoal Purifying Cleanser AM MARIO BADESCU - Vitamin C Serum AM When I was away from home, I didn’t wash it at all except with makeup wipes and my skin cleared up!Its also stayed clear for almost 2 weeks now and I haven’t had skin this clear in 3 years! I have sensitive normal skin with an oily T-zone. Should I keep not washing my face?

i have acne around my mouth and in between my eyebrows. ever since i’ve started using skincare, it has cleared up dramatically. my oily skin rejoices when i put on my The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% . it has brightened up my whole face and has completely gotten rid of my acne where i don’t have it as often. there is one downside, and that is the tackiness. i’ve found out that you have to make sure your face is dry or else it’s extremely sticky. even when you dry your face completely, it’s still slightly tacky. for me it goes away in 20 ish minutes. but the tackiness helps my moisturizer and eye cream stick nicely i don’t have sensitive skin, so i can do a full face. if you have sensitive skin use a little bit till you build up your tolerance i definitely recommend this to anyone with acne!

I need new products to try out. Pls help :(
Hey guys! I’ve been struggling with acne and pores my whole life and it’s been getting better since the last few years as I’ve been starting to buy more and more products that have been helping with my acne and my skin. Tbh I’m not even sure what my skin is. Sometimes it’s oily, sometimes it’s dry and sometimes it has a combination of both. So when skin care specialists or dermatologists ask what type of skin I have I really don’t know how to answer them. I think I mainly have oily skin since after a day out I would be sweating my make up off. I’ve been switching my products a lot. I started my skin care journey with neutrogena products. Their oily acne prone cleanser with their acne spot treatments and their toner. I didn’t see much change in my skin so switched my cleanser to clean and clear acne cleanser. That didn’t seem to work out either but I’m currently using ✨urban skin rx cleansing bar for oily ✨thayers witch hazel toner (fragrance free) ✨stridex salicylic acid 2% w/ acne medication pads (easy on skin, tough on acne one) (I use it every night) ✨the ordinary AHA 30% peeling solution ( once a week) ✨CeraVe moisturizing cream for Normal to dry Skin I have seen a change in my face by using these products but I still seem to have large pores around my cheeks and dark spots and acne scars and I’m also looking for a different cleanser since I’m not too sure how gentle the cleansing pads can be from the urban rx skin bar ones.

Eczema? Dermatitis? Acne? Over exfoliating?
Eczema? Dermatitis? Acne? Over exfoliating?
I was wondering if anyone knew what these bumps on my face were. I started getting these small bumps on my jawline About a month and a half ago. Since then the small patch of bumpiness has started to spread and make an even larger patch. As you can see from the photo my skin has a chicken skin texture around the rough bumpy patch which also calls for concern because as it spreads I’m realizing that it looks like the otherwise smooth “chicken skin” is the first step for the more developed bumps on my face. When the bumpy patch first appeared I was using my regular CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin, a moisturizer and a sunscreen as my morning routine(with 2x a week salicylic acid pads). For my PM routine I was using my CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skinand aThe Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil(with 2x a week The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution). Very simple regimen and the only new product at the time was the glycolic acid. Anyways I have since added another new product to my regimen(The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%) but these bumps started even before the new product so I’m thinking it probably has more to do with the glycolic acid even though I’ve been using that for months. I just don’t know what to call it and because I don’t know what it is I don’t know how to treat it. Is it regular acne? is it eczema? is this a sign of over exfoliation? How do I get rid of it? I did a clay mask two days ago and have only used salicylic acid and I am laying off on the glycolic acid for this week to see if anything improves. I don’t know what to do because it seems even though I haven’t use the glycolic it continues to get worse and I’m breaking out in other parts of my face too.

It was such a hard time. The first photo is also a lot better compared to how my face was before. I didn’t even click any bare face photos as it was so bad, I would avoid looking myself in the mirror and meeting peoples. I never thought acne could literally mess your life up. Most importantly besides skin care products, I changed my diet as well.

Which one should I get?
Which one should I get?
(This post is long so a summary is I need help deciding between The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% and CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum thanks in advance 😊) Every morning when I wake up the first thing I do is look in the mirror as if my skin has magically turned clear over night (I really need to stop doing this ;-;) and Of course it has not. I feel like maybe something im using in my routine is not working. I have been using The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%every night except exfoliation nights for about maybe two months now and I honestly can’t tell if it’s working because my skin has gotten tremendously worse in those two months (;-;) I also use The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solutionevery Sunday and I do the The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solutionevery Tuesday and Thursday. I use the Aveeno - CLEAR COMPLEXION Cream Face Cleanser With Salicylic Acidevery night except my exfoliation nights and my holy grail cleanser (the dirty works creamy cleanser) every morning and on exfoliation nights. My main thing is I don’t know whether I’m doing too much or not enough. I know the healing process takes time but I feel like I’m not going anywhere and it’s so freaking frustrating. I promised myself not to buy anymore serums until I finish my niacinamide and that’s where the help comes in. I don’t know what to use after I finish my bottle. I don’t think the niacinamide has really done much for me so I’m thinking the retinol because I have plenty of post acne scars but I don’t know how that will affect my routine. I’m also thinking the alpha arbutin because it has vitamin c in it and it’s supposed to help with dark spots. I will say that my skin scars whether I pop my pimples or not (which is so goddamn unfair shshsjakaak 😭) so maybe the retinol because I have post acne scars?? I don’t know, I just know I need some help 😭
