$3.59 Maskne Management
So like everyone else in the world, except a few rebels without a cause, I’ve been wearing a mask nonstop for the past handful of months. It’s created serious #maskne and been a huge bummer. A little bit of backstory: had amazing skin in my teenage years, then in my mid-twenties I started getting cystic acne. I did Curology and a round of doxycycline (aka the big guns of antibiotics) and finally got it under control. All was fine and dandy until this pandemic happened! Being a registered nurse and working during the pandemic has had its own set of challenges but the most apparent one is the physical toll it’s had on my skin. I cant say enough good things about this up&up - Max. Strength Acne Medication It has helped keep serious breakouts at bay and helped tame current breakouts. The way I use it is during the day after cleansing and using my niacinamide, I’ll take a dime size amount of this product and lather is specifically on my chin and jawline where I breakout. I will massage it in until there is no white cast. I will wait a moment for it to dry and then put my CeraVe moisturizer on. Very important to drink lots of water and moisturize when using this because it can dry your skin out! Hope this helps anyone suffering from maskne!

Updated Nighttime Skin Care
The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution This product has really been a game changer for my skin. I use it once a week to help the dryness and dullness of my skin. It does tingle a bit on my skin, although I leave it on for 5 minutes instead of the recommendation 10 minutes. The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG I’ve never been one to use eye creams because I feel like they are just a glorified moisturizer, doing the same thing a moisturizer would do to the rest of the face. This product has completely change my opinion. It banishes my dark circles and de puffs my eyes. I use this product twice a day. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 I’ve always been afraid of any type of acid on my face because my skin can get very dry. Hyaluronic acid was recommended to hydrate my skin and I’m very glad I used this product. It has changed the dryness of my skin. fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer This is the first nighttime moisturizer I’ve used that doesn’t make my face greasy, which is why I will continue to use this product and purchase it over and over again. up&up - Max. Strength Acne Medication I don’t get acne very often on my face so I don’t want to spend a lot on an acne spot treatment. This one is ok, it sometimes takes a couple days to a week to use and if it’s overused in one area it can dry the skin. However for the amount of times I use it this product gets the job done at a price I can afford. In short, I love the brand Fresh and will always use their products. I have fallen in love with The Ordinary and will continue to use their products. I have finally found a combination that works for my dry/combination skin and will use it for as long as it works on my skin.

Face wash & acne treatment
Neutrogena - Liquid , Facial Cleansing Formula this is a bit drying and had an off smell but it did help clear up acne - by that I mean it dried the acne up pretty good at removing excess makeup residue especially using the silicon scrub brush (don’t scrub too hard! Gentle circular motions is good enough) up&up - Acne Spot Treatment benzoyl peroxide is the only treatment my face can tolerate - can’t do salicylic acid for some reason I always get a bad reaction to it. it’s a spot treatment so just apply to problematic acne and after a few uses I noticed they went away this brand is about as good as any when it comes to a product like this - essentially the formula is the same strength as name brand

BENZOYL PEROXIDE 101: TIPS & HOW TO
Benzoyl Peroxide is one of my favorite topical acne treatments you can buy at any drugstore! In 2013 I had horrible acne and it only took a month to clear it up. Here’s how I personally used BP and tips to know before starting! Tips: -Make sure other products in your routine aren’t comedogenic, and stop using the ones that are! Use cosdna.com for this. -Plan for your routine to be as minimal as possible. Cleanser, moisturizer, and SPF is all you’ll need for now. -Buy a 2.5% BP as research shows this works just as well as 5% and up, with less irritation. Drugstore brands with BP: Neutrogena, Up&Up, Clearasil, and La Roche Posay. Paula’s Choice (online) is great too, and great quality for more product. How to use: -Cleanse skin. Always double cleanse in the pm, especially if you have acne. -Gently apply a light layer of BP to ALL areas you tend to break out in. Do not use just as a spot treatment if you want the best results. -Wait 5-10 min to let it completely dry. BP can bleach clothes and pillows, so always wait until it’s dry. -Moisturize. Again, gently! The less you rub your skin, the less irritation. Let skin absorb it. Apply 1-2 layers. Hydration and moisturizing is key to prevent the dryness that BP will bring later on. Trust me on this. +++Ingredients to look for in your moisturizer: glycerin, squalane, niacinamide, sodium hyaluronate, jojoba oil, ceramides (for barrier repair/replenishing); rosehip oil, vitamin c, licorice root extract (for brightening dark spots) -Use broad spectrum SPF of at least 30 (in the am). Preferably with antioxidants and barrier repairing ingredients as above! Do this am & pm for at least a month. If you have sensitive skin, use once daily for a week to see if irritation occurs, then increase to twice daily. If you’re consistent with this you may notice your skin to get more dry. This is normal with BP, so be generous with moisturizer. Disclaimer: this is my personal experience and I am not a licensed professional. Always do your due diligence for your own skin. Good luck! ☺️

My PM routine + makeup removal & exfoliant
If I’ve worn makeup, I use the Pond’s cold cream and remove it with a hot towel. I 1. I remove any makeup with POND'S - Cold Cream Cleanser and remove it with a hot towel. 2. I apply Safflower Oil to my patted dry face to oil cleanse thoroughly. 3. I finish my double cleanse with up&up - Deep Cleaning Acne Treatment . I lather up one pump and work it all over my face, hairline, jawline and neck. 4. I apply HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Facial Toner to a dry cotton square and sweep all over. 5. I use up&up - Pore Cleansing Strips to exfoliate my pores. If anything, I tend to not exfoliate enough. I pretty much use these when it’s been a while and I remember. 6. I tone the nose again with HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Facial Toner 7. I apply a small amount of DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream 8. I pat 3 drops of tarte - Maracuja Oil into my palms, rub together, and pat into my skin. Tada!✨

RATE MY current AM skincare ROUTINE
Here’s what I’m working with atm to achieve skin mostly free of breakouts. I’m not treating any particular concern with these products and I find they work well for my skin type. I hope to build from here as I learn more about skincare. -up&up - Deep Cleaning Acne Treatment or equate - Deep Cleaning Facial Cleanser -HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Facial Toner -Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer or Neutrogena - Bright Boost Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 30 -RAW SUGAR - Organic Lip Balm Raw Coconut + Mango I chose the acne wash because I was breaking out and as it turns out, the salicylic acid works well with my skin type. The deep cleaning facial cleanser from Equate Beauty has the same active ingredient—they’re basically the same product imo 🤫 I keep one in the shower. I’ve learned that supporting your skincare routine with gentle, hydrating cleansers and toners (and moisturizers) will help spotlight the actives you end up incorporating. I switch between the moisturizers depending on whether I want spf that day or not. I’m starting out with the things I already had at home. I was gifted the lip balm and I like the way it smells.

HELP!!
HELP!!
My current skincare routine consists of CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser, then up&up - Deep Cleaning Pore Treatment at night, then Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil, and finishing it off at CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin. I want to add The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%into my routine but I'm not sure where it fits in or how to apply the product. I am new to serums like that. Any recommendations? All and any input is wanted!! Thank you.

CeraVe-Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin
up&up - Charcoal Deep Pore Cle
up&up - Charcoal Deep Pore Cleanser Consists of good formula for acne-prone, sensitive skin. Doesn't have a strong fragrance. Clearasil - Stubborn Acne Control 5in1 Spot Treatment Cream Okay quality, tends to dry out my skin. the CRÈME shop - What Acne? Invisible Makeup Patches They work, but consistent long-term use makes it effective.
