Tips from a derm for exercise induced acne
With a new year comes resolutions, many involving healthier lifestyles and exercise. So why let exercise induced acne hold you back from achieving these healthier choices. Exercising can cause excessive sweating-leading to increased oils, dirt, friction, and even bacteria on your skin leading to acne. This can manifest as facial or truncal acne (think backne), often known as acne mechanica or folliculitis. Cleansing properly is incredibly important for preventing exercise induced acne. It’s important to remove all makeup prior to working out. Gently shower with lukewarm water immediately after sweating. If a shower is not available, reach for a cleansing wipe. Clean, loose-fitting moisture wicking attire is key. This helps prevent friction and additional bacteria and sweat from dirty clothing. In addition to wiping down all gym equipment, don’t forget about the stuff that hits your skin regularly such as headphones, watches, and headbands. Most importantly, don’t forget sunscreen and gentle moisturizers.

My go-to routine for the last 3 months
This routine has really helped put a halt on the heavy formation of hyperpigmentation! I have to admit, I’m a guilty pimple popper 😬 I HATE seeing them on my face and i know a pimple patch or spot treatment would be best but the anxiety in me will literally not let me stop thinking about a pimple the moment it pops up on my face 😭 overall with this routine I’ve noticed my skin dullness completely disappear and my skin is looking so much more plump and hydrated lately! I get pretty frequent acne but this is about the clearest my skin has looked in a really long time. I’m very wary when adding tools to my skincare routine but this Venus device is so dope! It has 4 different LED light settings (purple, green, red, blue) to combat different skin issues, it heats up and vibrates to really help stimulate the skin and for better product absorption. My favorite part is the fact that there’s a GREEN light option which is known to help with uneven tone (a godsend). With that and the addition of EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) to tone and tighten face muscles to keep us looking snatched and plump! This little machine does it all! Here’s to clearer skin and working on ourselves in 2021 🔥 I still also use the SAND&SKY - Australian Emu Apple Super Bounce Mask weekly to help keep my skin hydrated and to soften up those dark spots as well ☺️ slurp - Niacid Murad - Nutrient-Charged Water Gel TATCHA - The Essence Plumping Skin Softener MDNA SKIN - MDNA SKIN The Eye Serum #SKIIN co - Venus tool[products]#[FiveStars] TATCHA - The Rice Wash Skin-Softening Cleanser
Cleanse your skin like a pro
Cleansing is the first step of any skin regime, and it's essential to your skin's health that it is done correctly. Cleansing the skin removes makeup, sunscreen, and impurities/pollution built up from the day. Always use a Ph balanced cleanser to avoid compromising your skin's barrier. I generally switch out my gel cleanser for milk or balm in the winter months as my skin becomes drier. I find milk or balms more hydrating and soothing for the skin. My go-to right now is BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Lait Vip O2 Oxygenating Milk Cleanser paired with either the mini glove Biologique Recherche or the Luna Cleaning tool FOREO - LUNA Mini 2 Facial Cleansing Brush Fuchsia to aid deeper cleaning and increase blood circulation while massaging the skin. Try not to skip cleansing at night no matter how sleepy you are, sleeping with your makeup on goes far beyond clogged pores. Sleeping with your makeup on in the long term will prematurely age your skin due to the breakdown of collagen from environmental pollutants left on the skin. Always cleanse your skin twice at night. Double cleansing is key in removing makeup and sunscreen effectively. Makeup and sunscreen are designed to stick to the skin, and one cleanse just not going to cut it. Use colder water, never hot water to cleanse your skin. Heat is not your skin's friend; it can cause tewl (transepidermal water loss), lead to irritation, dehydration and sensitivity. Avoid cleansing the skin in the shower, the water is generally too hot, and the shower's pressure can lead to burst vessels. Pat dry, do not aggressively rub your skin with a towel - I hear too many times people rub their skin aggressively with a dry face cloth to exfoliate the skin - stop it. Be gentle with your skin; there are better ways to exfoliate your skin - trust me. Which moves me on to P50 lotions BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - LOTION P50 PIGM 400 Follow your cleansing routine with the correct P50 lotion for your skin type. P50 lotion is a gentle but effective way to exfoliate, hydrate the skin while maintaining the skin's Ph and respecting its barrier function. My go-to P50 right now is Pig400 which also targets hyperpigmentation concerns.

XMONDO Wavetech Foam Review
The XMONDO Wavetech foam definitely surprised me. This foam claims to define waves/curls while keeping them bouncy and soft. After using it on both my curly hair and my straight hair, I can confirm that this is one on my new go-to’s. I love using this foam on my curls because it defines them without adding the crunch. Not to mention this is one of the best smelling hair products I own. I recently started using it to smooth down my wigs as well and it’s been performing great in that area too. Now $27 for a foam is quite expensive in my opinion. It is cruelty free, sulfate and vegan, so you are paying for a quality product. However, there are other foams on the market that have the same ingredients, work well for my hair, and aren’t as expensive. I was gifted this item but I don’t think I would repurchase it solely because of how expensive it is. Overall, this is a great product and if it’s in your budget I would definitely recommend it.
