goodbye acne!

long story short...I had acne. Looking back it wasn’t the worst thing ever, but at the time it made me feel like the ugliest human on planet earth. I would come home everyday and wash my face thinking that having makeup on for a shorter amount of time would help, and then I would cry. I would go sit in front of my heater so that my face got all red from the heat that it made it harder for me to see my pimples, I would make concoctions in my bathroom trying to find something that would help and stayed up all night researching skin products and cleansers to help...sound familiar? That was my life for about a year. Finally after spending so much money on random products I thought would help me I came across la rochey posay acne kit and picked it up at my local Walgreens. Let’s just say I saw INSTANT results. The first couple of weeks my face was dry beyond belief but with the help of a little moisturizer it was nothing I couldn’t handle. After a month I was only left with scars that faded over time and now..nothing. This is my personal story but I must say that anytime anyone asks me what I do to get such clear skin I send them to go get the acne kit and they almost always love it as much as me !LA ROCHE-POSAY - EFFACLAR ACNE TREATMENT SYSTEM

This is one of the best serums that I have tried for getting rid of acne. I only tend to use this product at night, because it does contain salicylic acid, which I don’t like to leave on my face during the day. This is a gel like consistency and goes on very nicely. You can apply this to all spots on your face that are acne prone, but I tend to only put it on acne that is inflamed or a problem at the time. Putting this on at night, when I wake up I can immediately tell a difference from what my acne looked like the night before. It heals acne very quickly. I will definitely continue to repurchase this product and recommend to anyone! MARIO BADESCU - Anti Acne Serum

LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Dermatological Acne Treatment If you have acne, definitely give this product a shot. It's light, fragrance-free, easy to apply. A small amount goes a long way. I'm amazed by the result as it reduces inflammation and clears up your skin. Moderately priced at $29. I highly recommend it!

Curology or Differin for persistent acne?
Curology or Differin for persistent acne?
So I’ve had acne since I was 13 (I’m now 24). When you’ve dealt with an issue like acne for over a decade, you try a whooole lot of different products. These two are my top picks for persistent acne, and I’ll give you a spoiler: Curology comes out on top. Differin gel was previously available only by prescription. The active ingredient is .1% adapalene, a retinoid that works by speeding up cell turnover. Basically, it’s more difficult for pores to get clogged and develop into acne. The texture is a thin gel that absorbs very quickly. It does take some time to work, since it’s a retinoid—you really need to use it consistently for at least 12 weeks to see improvements, and your skin may purge. I used Differin gel for several years, and it cleared my acne to a far better degree than the products I had been using before (proactiv). On the other hand, Curology is a telemedicine service that matches you with a medical provider. You upload pictures of your skin, fill out a questionnaire, and you get prescribed a custom cream with three ingredients, some of which are prescription. Mine is 1% clindamycin, 9% azelaic acid, and .018% tretinoin. While Differin served me well for a good while, Curology has been helping my skin over the last year in a whole new way. I’ll be honest: it hasn’t been easy. My first Curology prescription completely cleared my skin—I’m talking clearest it’s been in a decade—and then my acne came back worse than ever. The bright side is, with Curology, you can contact your provider at any time and they can adjust your formula. I did that, and my provider also prescribed me two months of oral antibiotics to help my breakout clear up faster. They helped immensely, and I’m hopeful that my skin journey is headed in the right direction, though it takes time. Currently, Curology isn’t available in all 50 states, while Differin is. If you’re struggling with acne, my #1 recommendation is Curology because it’s customized to your skin needs and it can be adjusted over time. If Curology isn’t available to you, Differin is also a solid product with proven results. Differin is $30 for a tube that lasts about 3 months, and Curology is $20/month, which is more than worth it to me. Have you used either product? How has it worked for you?

Differin Gel Adapelene (retinol) THE BEST!!
Differin Gel Adapelene (retinol) THE BEST!!
Posted on 12/10/19 💙 . . I started differin gel on October 25th so it’s been 6 weeks. I knew there would be purging and I’d seen all the reviews saying how bad it gets, but I decided to purchase it anyways. LET ME SAY.. best decision ever!! . . STORY TIME: I’ve had acne since the 6th grade (little bumps on my forehead, cystic acne, white heads...you name it), and I’d always thought that I didn’t want to touch or do anything with my face because I thought I would make it worse. I’d use apple cider vinegar every night.. and while this did do something, it didn’t do anything in the long term. Fast forward 6 weeks ago.. and I started @differinus . After only using it for 2 days.. I started breaking out all over. I kept telling myself the end was near, but then another breakout would happen and I would be at square one again. Last week, however, I started seeing SUCH a difference. I have no new breakouts and my skin is getting clearer and clearer! I will of course keep doing my skincare routine and using TONS of moisturizer.. but I’m so excited to see even more results in the next couple of days, weeks, and months! 😭💙 . . Swipe for the BEFORE (3rd photo) and AFTER (4th photo)! So happy with this change and recommend differin gel absolutely! Just be ready for the purge and make sure to moisturize, moisturize, MOISTURIZE!! Ps- my purge lasted for 5 weeks!

I absolutely LOVED this product ! It worked wonders for my combination skin 😉 the cleanser is gentle on your skin , but has the best properties to fight acne . I had never tried this brand I picked it up at my local CVS. I am so glad I did I used it for a couple of months and saw the best results! It is very hard to find a good cleanser to help with acne . I suffer from acne time to time and most cleansers do not work for my skin! I always find 1/10 cleaners to work for my skin . This cleanser is a go in my books ! I am Asian and I have skin type that will also scar easily . Acne scars are the worst and I think this product definitely works in preventing acne and fighting it!

DIFFERIN - Acne Treatment Gel
DIFFERIN - Acne Treatment Gel Differin did get my acne under control. I did not experience purging, thankfully. The product itself did not sting, but caused my other products to sting. My face was very dry while using this. After finishing one tube, I decided to stop due to irritation. Differin caused extreme sensitivity. Micellar water that I previously used now causes chemical burns. I have yet to find a sunscreen that does not cause burns. Overall, I would recommend this product if you have tried all other treatments first.
