Acne Skin Routine 🧴

skincarejunkie1
I have acne-prone skin so I do this routine 1-2 times a week. I start by using the DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil
to remove sunscreen and/or makeup. Although this one clogged my pores and made me break out, I still want to finish it before I find a new one. Next, I use the CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin
to gently cleanse while exfoliating. I’ve been using this for a few months and haven’t noticed transforming results like others have. I tone with the peach slices - Snail Rescue Blemish Busting Toner
which has snail mucin (anti-aging), hyaluronic acid (hydrating), Centella Asiatica (soothing), and Tocopherol (Vitamin E). Overall great toner! I mildly exfoliate again with the VERSED - JUST BREATHE Clarifying Serum
which has willow bark, niacinamide, sodium hyaluronate, zinc gluconate, and more. Finally, I moisturize with the cocokind - Texture smoothing cream
which I have been loving! It has a lot of squalane which hydrates while balancing oils. Occasionally, I also use pimple patches when I’m breaking out (which is often). My favorite ones are the HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Original for Madewell
ones.

beautybyandreaA dermatologist on tiktok recommended to leave the lather on your face for about 30 seconds with the SA cleanser and i’ve noticed better results after doing that! maybe give it a try

skincarejunkie1I tried that and my face got irritated. Also, that cleanser doesn’t have the best ingredients which is part of the reason why I didn’t give it a solid 5/5. Thank you though.

Completely erase your deep wrinkles with this
I have struggled with harsh lines since my 20’s. The furrow line in my forehead is so pronounced I didn’t believe there was a skincare solution. I’ve switched my nighttime and daytime routine around three times since I started Cherie because of the knowledge I’ve gained from Cherie members and board certified dermatologist Dr.Dray. Here is what I do; Morning Routine 💙I rinse my face with water - DO NOT CLEANSE (I have an article on my page as to why you should not cleanse in the morning please check it out) 💜 AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) this product makes your skin smooth and brighten and it actually preps the skin to allow better absorption of the next product 💛Vitamin C serum is applied, vitamin c helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines 💚hyaluronic acid it plumps my skin up 🧡neutrogena hydro boost with spf 50. This is a water gel lotion with hyaluronic acid 🤍I finish with Avene moisturizing protecting lotion, this lotion I swear by it. It doesn’t claim to reduce fine lines but as soon as I put it on all my forehead wrinkles smooth right out. ➡️sometimes I add Vaseline to the sensitive areas of my face if I’m staying home the under eye where crows feet are and the furrow in my forehead. Doing this protects the skin barrier because it locks in the moisture from your products and slows down their absorption rate which means you benefit more from them. Nighttime routine 💛oil based cleanser. Oil based cleansers break up makeup, sunscreen and sebum more efficiently than regular gel cleansers 💙gel based cleanser next, it completely cleans the face from any left over oil cleanser ♥️ toner maybe twice - three times a week but not everyday as it’s winter the air is dry, toner can be even more drying 💚Retinoid serum comes next, but the face should be dry. 🧡Niacinamide to reduce the appearance of pores and fine line. 💜Vitamin E at the end of the day helps your skin barrier restore itself from the pollutants and uva and uvb exposure 🤎moisturizer is second to last on my routine, 💖last but not least in fact one of the most important things is SLUGGING! petroleum jelly is smeared on my face focused on the underlines where crows feet show, the furrow on my forehead - I don’t do my neck. I explained up above why this benefits you. ❇️so after 1 month of doing this my wrinkles have erased and my pores look great❇️ Fourth Ray - Reveal 10% Alpha Hydroxy Acid Serum TruSkin - Vitamin C Serum Fourth Ray - Hyaluronic Hydra Duo Skincare Kit Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 Avene moisturizing cream DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser Neutrogena - Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Oil Fourth Ray - Remedy 10% Niacinamide Serum Vitamin E from TrueSkin Avene moisturizing cream Vaseline - 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly, Original

Overall not bad and does what you want
DHC oil is a good first (aka oil based) cleanser that will definitely take on spf to your more heavier make up looks. I give it three stars because this is my first oil based cleanser once finding out more about skin care and am unsure how it stacks up compared to other brands. I recommend this more for dry skin since it does feel a bit more hydrating and I could imagine it being a bit heavy for oily skin. Sadly, it is not fragrance free. DHC oil does contain Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil. Since it is a wash off treatment, it should be ok for your skin, however if you already have sensitive skin and/or allergic to fragrance, I would refrain. It is my personal beleif that fragrance and essental oils don't have a place in good skin care so I'll empty this guy out and look for another brand ❤️

Best products for acne!
Here are my favorite products for acne all under $20! All of these can be found in Target and/or Ulta. Remember that you should not be using these products more that 3 times a week besides the spot treatments. Cleansers artnaturals - Cleansing Face Wash Great for oily/acne-prone skin. ACURE - Resurfacing Glycolic & Unicorn Root Clenser Great cleanser for mild exfoliation. PanOxyl - Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Maximum Strength I would only recommend this if you are sensitive to salicylic acid. Otherwise, use the other cleansers I recommend. Toners COSRX - AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner Gentle toner for acne with glycolic acid and willow bark. Serums/treatments The Ordinary - Mandelic Acid 10% + HA Really gentle + great for clogged pores and hair follicles DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel Strong acne retinoid. Spot treatments/patches cocokind - Turmeric Spot Treatment Really nice but can stain your pillow case or even face if you don’t wash it out well. SheaMoisture - African Black Soap & Bamboo Charcoal Drying Lotion Inexpensive dupe for the Mario Badescu one alba BOTANICA - Acne Pimple Patch Amazing/inexpensive patches HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Original for Madewell Classic pimple patch peach slices - Acne Spot Dots Average pimple patches STARFACE - Hydro-Stars Cute + helps a lot with inflammation ⭐️ TRULY - Our Stars Prevent Scars Acne Patches They have glycolic acid to help with dead skin buildup and tea tree oil to help with inflammation ⭐️

First day of school!! My last semester 🎉🎉
I never thought I would be comfortable going to class without makeup, but I’m so glad I don’t feel the need to wake up early and put it on anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I still very much love makeup but it’s a chore getting it off properly! I felt the need to share that it is officially my first day of class in my very last semester of college!! 🎉🎉 (I say like I’m not planning on going back because I hate my degree) We’re gonna be rolling into Marketing Strategy with second day hair, brow gel, and some mascara and that’s it! Sadly, I actually have to attend an in-person lecture, but it’s the only one. I also thought that I might as well share the new routine AM: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Lipikar Wash Ap+ Gentle Foaming Moisturizing Wash I gave this 4 stars because while it says fragrance free it has a strong citrus scent and burns the eyes, but it is definitely moisturizing and doesn’t strip the skin peach slices - Snail Rescue Blemish Busting Toner I accidentally got this too close to my under eye and it dried it out GOOD MOLECULES - Hyaluronic Acid Serum pretty nice, pretty standard VANICREAM - Lite Lotion DERMA•E - Scar Cream Sun Protectant SPF 35 PM: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Lipikar Wash Ap+ Gentle Foaming Moisturizing Wash *a little pea size amount of tretinoin* GOOD MOLECULES - Hyaluronic Acid Serum VANICREAM - Lite Lotion CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream I apply both moisturizers at night because my skin tends to dry out over night due to me keeping a fan going at all times My skin is a getter drier as the days go by, as expected, because my Accutane dosage has been bumped up and just due to the colder temperatures

My Top 5 Skincare Products of 2020!
2020 was quite the year. From Covid to wildfires, there were many difficulties. But, a good thing to come from the past year was growth in the skincare community! Being at home gave us lots of time to focus on ourselves and discover things that interest us. I have always loved skincare but quarantine gave me the opportunity to focus on my skin in a way I would have never been able to do otherwise. These are my favorite skincare products that I discovered this year! 1️⃣peach slices - Snail Rescue Blemish Busting Toner I purchased this product in early December. I usually like to use a product for a while before I decide how I feel about it and definitely before I recommend it, but this product is special. I’ve been using it for a short amount of time but I absolutely love it! I have dry, acne prone skin and this is ideal for my specific needs. It is super hydrating but it also helps treat and prevent acne. 2️⃣FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser This is a very basic cleanser but that is why I love it! It is very gentle and does exactly what it is supposed to do. I use this alone on days when I’m not wearing makeup or as a second step in a double cleansing routine. This is great for any skin type but if you have dry or sensitive this is especially good for you. 3️⃣BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream I purchased a trial size of this product because there is no way I could justify spending more than $50 on a product that is less than an ounce. Because of the price I don’t think I will be repurchasing this, but that being said, I love this product! I struggle with sensitive under eyes that flake and peel when irritated. This eye cream hydrates the sensitive skin around my eyes without making them sting! If you are able to purchase this product I really do recommend it. 4️⃣The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution As with pretty much everyone else, I found this product through TikTok. I’m a little late to the game though. I only recently started using this product but I can see a difference in my skin. I have milia on my forehead that makes my skin look textured and this helps! After using this product my skin feels soooo smooth. This product is very easy to misuse so make sure you are using it correctly and err on the side of caution. 5️⃣GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm This is the first cleansing balm I have ever used that I love. It feels so smooth on the face and easily removes all my makeup. I recommend it for anyone who is looking to double cleanse. Glow Recipe claims it can be used alone but I advise against that as it is hard to completely remove if you don’t follow it with a water based cleanser. If you have any skincare discoveries from 2020 let me know in the comments! I’d love to know what products you’re bringing with you into the new year.

BAG FULL OF GOODIES
wanted to share my quick thoughts on some new products i have recently tried/incorporated into my routine! ⭐️ @theouai rose hair & body oil: we love a multi-functional product!!! this smells so fresh and is perfect for the ends of my hair for an extra boost of hydration. also makes me skin so soft! ⭐️ @boscia cleansing oil*: such a clean scent! i use about 2-3 pumps of this at night & easily removes all my makeup & spf. it’s hydrating and doesn’t leave any type of film behind! ⭐️ @soleilsolace shimmering rose infused body oil*: this is a dream! it gives the perfect amount of hydration & shimmer!!! it blends effortlessly & leaves me so glowy. ⁉️ @cocokind tumeric tonic: i really enjoy tumeric in products, but still am unsure about this one. i have used this in my AM & PM routine, but didn’t really see any noticeable difference on breakouts. it is also a rollerball, which I am not a huge fan of. i am going to continue to test it out! ⭐️ @byroe_official better green essence toner*: really enjoy the idea of an essence + toner! i never really used an essence in my routine because I didn’t think it was necessary, but this is so hydrating! i use it my PM routine after cleansing and I find that it really preps my skin for my serums & moisturizer! ⁉️ @habitskin spf 41 mister*: absolutely LOVE the idea of a spf mister... it’s genius tbh. it sprays on pretty evenly and light, however it does makes me look a bit oily. I think it’s perfect for pool days & days where I am wearing minimal makeup, but not sure that I would use daily. ⭐️ @cocokind texture smoothing cream: light weight moisturizers are my go-to for combo skin & this is perfect! i mostly use this in my PM routine as a last step & it really does a nice job of locking everything in. ⭐️ @farmacybeauty daily greens moisturizer*: this is another great lightweight gel moisturizer! while i enjoy using it in my AM routine, I think I still like honey drop more. I like using this on no makeup days. it keeps me looking matte and fresh!

Eco-friendly skincare? We love to see it!
One of my favorite brands is Cocokind, and that’s because their products really work for my skin AND because they’re so sustainable! A while ago, I decided to switch over to more sustainable skincare brands, especially since I try so much, and Cocokind was a brand I discovered from my research. Their packaging is all either glass or recycled sugarcane materials, which is absolutely amazing! These products always make me so happy to use because i know I’m not contributing negatively to the environment with my love of skincare. Additionally, I really like these products because they come in little to no packaging (the paper is always recycled if used) and you don’t need to use cotton pads or single use items alongside these. Definitely recommend checking them out! I’ll update soon with my actual thoughts on these products but for now, I’m really impressed with the brand for its sustainability efforts.

My Korean Skincare Routine for Acne!!
My Korean Skincare Routine for Acne!!
SATURDAY SKIN - RISE + SHINE Purifying Cleanser AROMATICA - Rose Absolute First Serum MIZON - Snail Recovery Gel Cream BANILA CO - Dear Hydration Toner I was on accutane for 4 months in 2019, and I thought I found the cure for my acne. Unfortunately, I started breaking out again in February of 2020. My breakouts went back and forth, but either way they left me with more PIE (Post Inflammatory Erythema aka those RED/PINK marks leftover from acne) My skin was also insanely dry and painful!! Any face wash I used just burned and irritated my skin even more! I didn’t have a consistent skincare routine, so I turned to peachandlily.com to look for a Korean skincare routine that’s also cruelty free. I think I found my new go to routine! It’s pretty simple, but after only 2 weeks I am satisfied with the products so far. Of course they don’t create miracles, but I don’t have any current breakouts (which I’m surprised my skin didn’t purge), my skin is MUCH more hydrated, and I feel as though my PIE looks slightly lighter! I started with the Saturday Skin Rise + Shine Purifying Cleanser, then use the Banila Co Dear Hydration toner to help with my acne, follow it with the Aromatica Rose Absolute First Serum, and finish it off with the Mizon Snail Recovery Gel! The Saturday Skin cleanser surprisingly leaves my skin moisturized! The Banila Co toner has peppermint extract to help calm acne. The Aromatica serum has niacinamide which is supposed to help calm acne and fade both PIE and hyperpigmentation. The Snail Recovery Gel has snail mucin to help calm acne and also moisturize with anti-aging effects! Overall I’m very satisfied with this new routine, and I will update in a month to see how my skin is doing!

💕organization & how to move with skincare💕
💕organization & how to move with skincare💕
I’m moving soon and figured I should share my current organization for my skincare. I share a bathroom and wanted a way to keep all of my products to one drawer but still be able to see and have easy access to everything. I got this clear organizer from TJ Maxx (I have another for my makeup products). It fits nicely in my drawer and I love that I am able to find and pick out a product quickly. As for my cleansers, they just kind of float around everywhere. I like to keep 1-2 in my shower and 1-2 next to my bathroom sink on the counter. I just finished packing away (most of) my skin care and makeup by making sure everything was sealed to not leak and breakable packaging was wrapped up. In case you are curious, the last picture are the products that I’m leaving out and will go in my overnight bag to move. I’ll list all of this at the end because I think this selection could make a good minimal AM/PM routine on its own. But of course, I have to be more extra than that! 😉 Let me know if you want me to share my new #shelfie when I get settled at my new place! Here the list of my products I’m keeping readily available for the move: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin NATURIUM - Vitamin C Complex Serum NATURIUM - Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Serum 5% CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum VERSED - THE SHORTCUT Overnight Facial Peel CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion

Week 4 of Tretinoin and Spirinolactone Journey
Week 4 of Tretinoin and Spirinolactone Journey
This is the end of my fourth week going on Spirinolactone (pills for hormonal acne that I take 1x a day) and Tretinoin. This first half is a repeat of last week’s post, though I have made some slight updates to my routine. The new info will be right below my posted routine. I purchased both treatments from Apostrophe, so they have been prescribed by a dermatologist. My Apostrophe cream formula is 0.025% Tretinoin and 4% Niacinimide. I’ve simplified my routine to only include an oil cleanser, a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, the tret cream, a sunscreen, and an occlusive . I have normal skin. I’m looking to add more in as I adjust to treatment. My routine is as follows: AM CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin dear, klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 PM DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin dear, klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence (on non-tret nights) CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Apostrophe formula (using this after moisturizer so I can have a buffer between the tret and my skin) CeraVe - Healing Ointment So I added snail mucin and a hydrating toner as part of my regular routine. I’m now switching to everyday use of tret, so I want to keep my moisture barrier intact as my usage increases. I’m using snail mucin in the mornings, and am considering using it at night along with tret. Is the snail mucin 2x a day even better it is it just overkill? I’m also using the Cerave healing ointment as an occlusive to seal in hydration and moisture as the last step of my routine. I’m definitely in the purging period. I’m seeing a lot of pustules and closed comedones show up. Super excited, because this is showing me that Tret is actually working and speeding up my cell turnover. I’m am concerned about the Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) and the Post-Inflammatory Erythema (PIE) that will be left over after my acne subsides. Are there any products that for sure get rid of PIH/PIE. If you know of any, comment down below!

Kosmetic Immunity
What is Beta Glucan and what does it do for your skin? Welllll, it's a large molecule made up of a bunch of sugar molecules, starch and cellulose bonded together. Studies have shown that it can help treat dermatitis, ezcema, wounds and burns. It essential helps boost your skin barrier, especially if it's compromised, and tells your skin to fight pathogens. It also deeply hydrates the skin and is 20% more hydrating then hyaluronic acid. With all that in mind I was so excited to give @jkosmmune_cosmetics line a try (and extra excited when I won their giveaway of almost their entire line)! I've used Beta Glucan in the past after receiving a DMK treatment - my skin healed sooo quickly from the treatment when using the serum with Beta Glucan. I've tried all of the products from the line, including the serum which isn't pictured and I purchased on my own, and have been loving them! The cleanser is surprising jumped up my list of favorites to the top! All the products are extremely hydrating, but not too hydrating that I get oily throughout the day. Have you tried the line or any other Beta Glucan products? What did you think? I've seen some great reviews for other brands that include the ingredient! Overall Rating: 4/5 - I've seen some mixed reviews on beta glucan and fungal acne, if that's a concern I'd be wary!

Do you worry about acne after your workout
Do you worry about acne after your workout
Hey Everyone! So these are some products that helped me feel better after working out! So the first two products are really good for sensitive/dry skin. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser THE inkey LIST - Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gentle Exfoliating Toner FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser - I use this as a double cleanse in my nighttime routine, and a single cleanser after the gym. It cleans the dirt and sweat really well. THE inkey LIST - Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gentle Exfoliating Toner - I then go in with this toner to get excess dirt off. SKYORGANICS - Vitamin E Oil - I finish up with Vitamin E oil because it’s light enough to last me until my night time shower. Now the next two products are for more acne prone skin PanOxyl - Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Maximum Strength - use this if you get back acne or just any acne after sweating. I bought it for my boyfriend who works out everyday so after the gym he will rinse off with this bad boy and everything is all good. THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser - this is the extra step to take to really make sure you get the excess dirt off. SKYORGANICS - Vitamin E Oil - Still follow up with a moisturizer because benzoyl peroxide can be very drying and you want to keep the good stuff in. Thank you if you have anything to add leave a comment below! Follow me as well to help me become more educated about all the different skin.
