Best Derm Advice I’ve Ever Gotten
First of all, let me start by saying that it’s okay not to have all the skincare answers and ask for help. For me, I really started to notice a difference in my acne when I sought out help from my dermatologist and she prescribed me spironolactone and then once my skin began to significantly clear up, I stopped using spironolactone and was given a prescription retinol gel that I’ve been using for a year. In addition to giving me some acne-managing solutions, my derm has also given me some skincare tips that have also helped improve the overall quality and health of my skin. Here are some of my faves: Take it Slow With Retinol Retinol seems like it’s going to fix everything and fast but you really have to take your time with it. If you don’t, you could be looking at a lot of irritation, dryness, and redness—plus the possibility of exacerbating any existing skin concerns. That not only means using it sparingly throughout the week, but also using a small amount as well. When I was first starting out, I began by only using a pea size once a week and then built my way up to 2-3 times once my skin could tolerate it. Also, make sure you wear sunscreen always but especially when you start using retinol! Use a Mask a Week Before Your Period My breakouts have always synced up with my period and one way that I’ve been able to make my hormonal breakouts more manageable has been by masking one week before Aunt Flow comes to town. By using a detoxifying or refining mask during this time, you’re essentially getting rid of most of the pore-clogging oils that are getting ready to cause breakouts when your period starts. This doesn’t necessarily prevent breakouts 100%, but I’ve noticed that it does make the big cystic pimples less red and inflamed. My favorite mask is Caudalie’s Instant Detox Mask, which uses pink clay and acts like a pore vacuum to suck out excess oil, blackheads, dirt, and more. It’s meant to be left on for 10 minutes but I will say that it does feel a little uncomfortable and tight around halfway. But it doesn’t feel stripping once it’s washed off. If that discomfort isn’t your vibe, then this might not be the mask for you. Use Vitamin C Every Day I’ve never been someone that had dark spots or discoloration, so I didn’t think that I needed a vitamin C serum in my routine. But my derm assured me that it caters to sooo many other skin concerns than just discoloration. I’ve found that it’s not only given my skin a glow and helped even out my complexion, but also shrink the size of my breakouts significantly because of how it accelerates cell turnover. Plus, it also neutralizes any existing damage from the sun, which we could all use. I’ve tried a couple of vitamin C serums, but the one that I was really impressed with was Organic Pharmacy’s Stabilised Vitamin C Serum, which is a little pricey at $65 but contains 15% vitamin C and improved my skin’s brightness and evenness so well. It contains witch hazel to combat wrinkles, which could make it irritating to some, but I loved how hydrating this formula was and how well it absorbed into my skin.

Dry brushing removes dead skin cells
Dry brushing removes dead skin cells
The one I have is from @theorganicpharmacy its a long brush which has two ways to perform. You can attach the stick to reach spots on your back or just use the brush as it fits in your hand perfectly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I usually dry body brush after I take a shower, and its amazing to put some oil/lotion after brushing. It really feels energetic and like my skin can breathe. I wouldn’t say its super gentle, the bristles are medium soft so you will experience some roughness but it won’t harm the skin in any way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This one retails for $15 , I think its a great price. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you use a body brush or any other skin tools? Let me know your thoughts ✨

You Might Have Never Heard of This Brand, But This is Surprising!
You Might Have Never Heard of This Brand, But This is Surprising!
THE ORGANIC PHARMACY - Antioxidant Face Gel and THE ORGANIC PHARMACY - Antioxidant Face Firming Serum 35mlare from a British organic spa brand which produces pregnancy-safe products. I recommend using them together for greater results. People tend to go for instant skin rejuvenation products nowadays and have less interest in natural organic products like these. However, I really recommend using these two products because although they use natural and safe ingredients, the result is actually really obvious. I always look fairer and more radiant the next day after using them. They also seem to lighten acne scars. They have a really heavy fruity acidic scent, but I like it.
