BANISH - PUMPKIN ENZYME MASQUE I used this 2-4 times a week and it really helped get rid of most of my acne but I didn’t see results til a couple weeks after using this so if u want a mask that will really help to fight away acne and even out ur skin tone and texture this is the one for u. Unfortunately I just ran out of this but will get more soon😁. Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser I cannot talk about this cleanser enough! Since I have oily and acne prone skin used to always go for products that would get rid of some of my acne but it would end up drying and damaging my skin. And this was the first cleanser I used that didn’t leave my skin what I thought was “clean” but it left my skin hydrated and it felt nourished and balanced. And not only that but all the ingredients are so good for your skin and since using this cleanser I actually get excited to wash my face😂Louisejamais's acne story
I got this balm last year when I traveled in Paris. It’s a highly-potent, fast-absorbing balm to fight the look of redness and acne, while instantly increasing brightness, radiance, and luminosity. I am a skincare junkie so I am very strict on what I apply to my skin. This has great ingredients and helped clear my acne as well as help prevent breakouts from happening. A lot of products tend to tingle and burn on my skin but this one did not give me that horrible sensation. Love it over all !Glowwitherin's acne story
Hello friends! I shared my Drunk Elephant transformation on Instagram over a year ago and I thought I should share it here ❤️ In short, my face was covered in horrible cystic acne. I tried out TLC Framboos, Lala Retro and B Hydra and my life was forever changed. I was even featured on the Drunk Elephant Instagram and then their new Bare With Us kit for my before and after photo! I have included my original photo plus a photo of my skin then and now too. I still can’t believe how far I have come. I could cry. Good skincare makes all the difference.Keauger's acne story
At first, my skin definitely was dry and irritated because of the product, but I made sure to moisturize well. I tried not to put any make up on and just let my skin do its thing. It’s also important to not pick at your face, which I am SO guilty of doing. I know everyone’s skin is different, but it only took about a month for it to clear up! I just had another flare up but I’m not sure if it’s stressed related bc #unemployedgrad but this really helped me!Kitty.mf's acne story
🌸 DO go to a dermatologist. There are some AMAZING products out there (retinol and tretinoin) that can be prescribed in higher doses than what you find in stores. most are pretty inexpensive 🌸 DON’T overmask! Clay masks can remove excess Sebum, but using them too often will strip your skin and cause your face to product more oil. More oil = more acne. I learned this the hard way. 🌸 DO use a facial oil! it sounds kind of crazy, but using a noncomedogenic oil like Squalene mimic sebum on the skin and caused your face to produce less of the gunky stuff. 🌸 DON’T pick at them with your bare unwashed hands. That’s how scarring and infection happen. And not all acne can be physically extracted in this manner. If you have a more severe type, thatll just make it worse. I am a believer that you CAN POKE at acne but...Pixelle's acne story
However, a couple months before my wedding last year, I started noticing some acne beginning to consistently form in my chin area. I at first attributed to pre-wedding stress (which honestly didn’t make much sense because I actually didn’t do all my wedding planning). But even after the wedding, the breakouts continued to worsen. I reached out to Curology and they switched my prescription to the more aggressive tretinoin. It helped to control it somewhat, but unlike before, new breakouts would surface every week. So with that being said, I’m going back to square one with my acne journey. I’ll using Cherie as a journal to document my successes and failures as I try to, again, get the zits under control. I happily welcome recommendations and feedback! I am by no means a skin or beauty expert, but my hope is that my journey will somewhat encourage another individual that they’re not alone in this battle!Nicool's acne story
At night CLEANSER: Used the micellar water as a cleanser again. MASK: I applied to parts of my face that felt tight and it soothed a lot! It was cooling and helped with any irritation I had. I only give it 4 stars because I think it could do a bit more for the price. TREATMENT: I applied my prescribed Epiduo. MOISTURIZER: And later followed up with that I love so much! It's so cheap and feels so soothing. In the morning I cleaned my face and moisturized and I'm wowed by the results just 24 hours later!! I'm so impressed byWe can see many girls who look perfect and just cover their skin to look even more perfect. Then we started to imitate them and even feel like to cover these flaws is a have to. However, it is totally acne negativity. The thing we need to do is keeping "acne positivity" going. Smile to everyone just like our cheire girls do.
