A miracle spot-disappearing product🤫🤫
MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion I bought a bottle after my sister recommended it to me. I’ve not suffered from spots since I was 17 but for some crazy reason, I’ve started getting breakouts in my 19‘s. Bad breakouts! This drying lotion works, it’s cleared my skin, now I'm 21 and has struggled with my acne for years. I first started using it, the stuff is extremely insane. I only need dip a cotton bud into the bottle, right to the bottom, where all the pink liquid is resting. Then the cotton bud is dragged upwards through the liquid. Dab the cotton bud on to your spot, at night, and go to sleep. Your spot will disappear in the morning. I usually won't apply it all over because it's very drying. Although I tend to have a little bit of rosacea once in a while, I have spread a very thin layer over that area of my cheek / and never had a problem with over-drying. I'll also use it in the morning if I feel something coming on in an obvious area of my face, I'll apply a thin layer (once it's dry, I can blend away the pink a little more) then I apply my makeup and off to work I go. I had read that the product should never be shaken or mixed. I take a Qtip and dip it in just far enough to hit the pink solution, then I dab it on the spot where it's needed at night before bed. Smaller zits usually need only one application and it's gone overnight. Medium to larger zits I'll use the product for 2 or 3 nights in a row until it's completely gone. I'll see shrinkage starting the very next day. It seems to work best on whiteheads for me those active, greasy, liquid-filled spots. It doesn't work on red scars or anything, but you wouldn't expect it to. Anyway, highly recommended this product.

All problems can be solved with only 💰36!
Do you have such troubles? Usually everything is perfect, but the more important it is, the easier it is for skin to cause problems. When changing seasons or menstrual periods, I am a very acne-prone person, especially on the chin and forehead. This means that the imbalance of hormones in my body leads to the instability of the skin. At this time, I usually choose a complete set of skin care products to alleviate skin problems. Because a whole set of skin care products are of the same brand, their ingredients and application procedures will be strictly regulated, which will not cause adverse reactions when your skin collapses. Mario Badescu Complexion Perfection Kit $36 This set of products was bought at a discount. To tell the truth, I didn't know this brand very well before. But after I got a lot of pimples on my chin, the $36 products solved my urgent need. This set of products is designed to treat blemish prone and oily skin types, including Drying Lotion, Drying Cream and Special Healing Powder. Their specifications are not very big, and because I don't use them every day, they are very suitable, and I don't have to worry about the expiration. These three kinds of products can be used as a complete routine skin care procedure. There are two key components, both of which are useful for acne. The first one is Salicylic Acid, which can exfoliate in pores, remove bacteria and excess oil. The second is Sulphur, which is a gentle mineral that draws out impurities and absorbs oil. Generally speaking, my acne disappears in about two days after using this product. First of all, I will use Drying Lotion to apply to the surface of the acne. Please pay particular attention here. Never shake the bottle. All you need to do is dip the pink precipitate on the bottom of the bottle with a cotton swab, and then apply it on the acne surface. This is the core product in this group. Next, you can use Drying Cream and Special Healing Powder. They dry your oily skin and reduce the possibility of pore blockage.

RENTINOIDs: the BEST super ingredient
🌸 note: two of the products in my picture are prescription only, high grade retinoids. but i have tagged their drug store dupes that are the SAME product with a lower concentration 🌸 WHAT IS A RETINOL? in the most basic form, a retinoid is a form of VITAMIN A which encourages skin cells to break down and turn over faster, resulting in reduction of acne, wrinkles, dark spots and signs of aging. It promotes collagen production, unclogs pores, and reduces scarring. its actually thickens skin, preventing wrinkles from forming ☀️☀️ALWAYS USE AN SPF WITH RETINOIDS☀️☀️ because your skin cells are dying and regenerating so quickly, you are much more prone to sunburns. And we know sunburns are literally life-threatening they vary HIGHLY in strength (weak to strong list)  - retinoid esters: The weakest version of a retinoid, but is good for sensitive skin, surface level  retinol: found in a variety of products, works on the cellular level of skin - adapalene (differin): Used to be prescription only but can now be found in a low-dose age in most drug stores. penetrates deeper and slows the production of sebum with faster cell turnover - retinoic acid (Retin-A/tretinoin): works deeper in the skin, can produce overnight results in the form of dead skin peeling. Very advanced skin cell turnover, as it penetrates and stimulates cell death and production. Skin can become very sensitive, irritated , and red - isotretinoin (Accutane): essentially sebum production is very limited and skin cell turnover is dramatically increased. on ingestible medication that will make your skin peel, dry out, and really kill acne. It’s prescription only but very effective. 🌸 products i use! prescription only: ADAPALENE 0.3% dupe: DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel ADAPALENE is the primary form of retinol in this product. this has been my go to product for years, it makes me less sun sensitive then Retin-A 0.05%, while still giving me excellent skin cell turnover and anti aging benefits. It helped my skin go from absolute shiz to a much cleaner glowing face (see 4th pic) prescription only: RETIN-A 0.05% dupe: janssen - Retino-A 0.05% Tretinoin Cream TRETENOIN is the primary form of retinoid in this product. these two may actually be the same product, but the one that I have I know is usually prescription grade. it will make your skin peel overnight, so I use it as a spot treatment if I get any deep set nodular acne. i used this for a couple years but it made me really sun sensitive, it is very strong! luxury brand: SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum RETINOL ESTER and CoQ10 are the primary forms of retinal in this product. this claims to have a 6.5% blend of stabilize retinoids and botanical retinoid alternative extracts. I think that it is incredibly overpriced for what it is. There are very similar dupes such as those from the inkey list and the ordinary

Acne Treatment
If anyone is to ask me for an acne treatment recommendation, most of the time I will say DIFFERIN GEL !! The only reason I wouldn't recommend it would be dependent on their lifestyle Let's talk about differin gel: - Don't plan on being in the sun unless you have a LOT of sunscreen on - you will experience purging and it does NOOOT work right away - you could have dry skin or peeling so wear a lot of moisturizer as well - this is great for scarring or acne breakouts! - I find that it also helps to control my oil! Some cons: - dryness - you have to give this product time - you can still experience hormonal breakouts and breakouts in general but don't give up on this treatment - sun burning and irrational easily But the cons can easily be overlooked because I definitely think this product has done an incredible amount for me and I've been using it for so long DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel

Hyram Approved🎉🎉Pick The Best Type of Pimple Patch for Your Skin!
You might be confused by Hydrocolloid patches and Micro dart patches, and had a hard time to choose from when acne occurred. Hyram just taught us how to pick the right pimple patch for your skin, and I've listed the benefits and reasons underneath.  Hydrocolloid patches: for medical purposes, and they are originally created for ulcers. Essentially they serve as a protective barrier overtops of a wound to suck out all the nasty fluid from the wound and to help accelerate the healing process. Hydrocolloid patches help to reduce trans epidermal water loss (TEWL: the loss of water that passes from inside a body through the epidermis to the surrounding atmosphere via diffusion and evaporation processes.) thereby hydrating those areas to accelerate the healing process. They create a barrier between you and the pimple to avoid them to be exposed to pollution, dirt, bacteria, and us touching it.  Hydrocolloid patches are most beneficial for pimples that really juicy and oily, and some ones that are producing pus so that we need something to really protect the opening on top of the skin ones.  They are best for people who already have pimples that have come to the surface of the skin, that have erupted, that are risking bacteria and dirt exposure.  Product Recommendation:  COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch($6): contains a variety of sizes. Put them on before you go to sleep, and the next morning you will notice the redness and pus have gone down a lot.  Micro-Dart patches: the difference between hydrocolloid patches and micro-dart patches is that micro-dart patches contain the beneficial ingredients that are typically found in acne treatments, which are arranged into micro dark shapes on the surface of the patch to be able to be pressed into the skin and deliver those benefits deeper. It typically makes sure that the acne-treatment serums can go deeper into our skin to prevent pimples from getting worse and for treating those under the skin pimples.  Using them when you experience the pain under the skin breakout or you really want to take care of a pimple fast.  Product Recommendation:  ZITSTICKA - Killa Kit($29): it contains the ingredients like salicylic acid, which is great for exfoliation, Niacinamide, which will not only control the oil and sebum production in that area but also brightening any scars or dark spots, and tea tree oil.  The primary difference between micro-dart patches and hydrocolloid patches is the price point. Because of the technology and the serum, micro-dart patches tend to be more expensive than a standard high patch.  Check the link below to watch more from Hyram  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xP2ldqrtN7U&feature=emb_title Comment below to let me know your thoughts and experiences. 💖💖

My Maskne-Friendly Picks + Tips
Wearing a mask when you’re in public and around others is important. It’s also important to take care of the skin beneath your mask. Masks cause friction and heat can build up underneath, especially if you’re doing physical activity for work or pleasure, which can clog pores + cause maskne (acne from mask-wearing). I will preface this by saying that I don’t break out often. My skin is very dry. I have, however, experienced a few breakouts on the skin that is covered by my mask when I wear it for prolonged periods of time. My non-skincare tip is to not wear makeup underneath your mask because it can clog your pores. If I’m going to be wearing my mask for 30+ minutes (especially if I’m going to be working out), I remove my makeup before leaving my home. I find that really helps me to not break out as frequently. Okay, now for my picks! I use the Paula’s Choice CLEAR line. I purchased these as a set on the PC website on sale for $49 before the start of the pandemic. I purchased the Extra Strength kit because my now husband battles hormonal acne. The set comes with the PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore Normalizing Cleanser ($13), PAULA'S CHOICE - Clear Extra Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution with 2% Salicylic Acid w/ 2% salicylic acid, and PAULA'S CHOICE - Clear Extra Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment w/ Benzoyl Peroxide 5% ($19). The cleanser contains a gentle percentage of salicylic acid (0.5%) to clean out pores and fight acne. It has a gel texture and lathers a bit. Even with my dry skin, I can use this multiple times per week without my skin feeling dried out. The exfoliating solution is very similar to PC’s popular BHA in the grey bottle. This solution feels slightly more viscous than that one, so I actually like it better for my dry skin. Salicyic acid is awesome for fighting acne. I use it all over my face 2x/wk in the PM after cleansing and toning. Oilier skin types can probably use this more, as it is designed for daily use. It does say anti-redness but I personally don’t think it calms redness. The benxoyl peroxide treatment is more heavy-duty and has a lightweight lotion texture (can be worn under makeup). I use this as a spot treatment before moisturizing (let dry) as needed 1 or 2x/day because I do find it a bit drying, though my husband (more oily) never has issues. I don’t use this on the same day as the exfoliating liquid. I use this one the least, but hubs uses it more. Of the 3, only the benxoyl peroxide has a mild chemical scent. Acne patches are also great. Super easy to wear during the day or night if you work from home or are wearing a mask at work. I use the COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch if a pimple has burst to suck out the gunk inside and protect it while it heals. They’re thin and stick well. Note: Make sure you use SPF 30+ during the day!! Acids can make your skin sensitive to the sun! #CheriePartner

Zitsticka Opinion
[REVIEW ft @zitsticka] So let me start of by saying, I would love if my acne prone gals (like me) can listen in and let me know if you agree with me! I love zitsticka! I’ve been trying out their KILLA patches for early stage zits for quite some time now. But let me tell you, it’s costing me quite a buck. I love how it takes me maybe 3 patches to either shrink down ONE zit I feel under my skin tremendously or make it practically disappear. Sounds great right?! It is great. BUT when you’re acne prone like me and I mean ACNE prone, where you get 5-8 blemishes coming out ALLL AT ONCE, what am I supposed to do? Zitsticka retails for $30 for only 8 PATCHES, 8 !!! And it takes 3 patches for just ONE to go away, but I have 6-7 other zits to tend to? I’m spending like $60 on two packs to help with 5 blemishes total but I sometimes get more than 5 at once.🥺 It makes me stressed because I love how fast the results are but I don’t think I’ll be paying that anymore! What are your thoughts? I hope I explained myself well. 😂 I’m unsure of what other microdart patches to use, any recommendations? Side note: I know these are the small size, the Ulta by my house doesn’t have the full size in store.🤦🏼‍♀️ ZITSTICKA - KILLA Spot Clarifying Patch Kit ZITSTICKA - Killa Kit

Newest target skincare find!!!
These HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Original and Invisible+ Bundle patches had been all over instagram so of course I had to try them out! (sorry I have not been so active recently) First I am going to talk about what theese are and the ingredients. These patches are hydrocollid patches, which are patches filled white benifital ingredients that you put on your pimple. Now from an ingredient standpoint theese have salicylic acid to help treat your pimple without causing irritation. They also take an aproach on using no harsh ingredients me many other brands do that will irritate your skin. Over all, theese definitely will help to treat your pimple. So now I am going to talk about my experience. The pack includes 6 original patches and 6 invisible patches which are meant to be less visible so you can wear them throughout the day. This is now my personal experience this and might be different for other peoples skin experiences with this product. When I used this overnight I saw the pimple had shrunk and was much less irritation around the pimple. But, when I used the invisible ones in the day, I felt like I wasn’t getting the best use out of them because I would sweat, and the sweat would get trapped underneath the pimple patch causing more bacteria to be forced to enter the affected areas. So for me personally I just stuck to using them at night and it worked great and I saw good results. Another thing is that they are a great dupe for the PEACE OUT - Acne Healing Dots which are much more pricey then theese hero cosmetics ones. Honestly I saw pretty similar results from both and if you are looking to spend less, getting the hero cosmetic ones is a no brainer.

5-second reviews: September Skincare Empties
Hi friends!!! I have been super busy recently and didn’t realize how much I have emptied this month already! This isn’t even HALF but these are the empties I feel comfortable reviewing at the moment! Please keep in mind I have fair skin that is sensitive, acne-prone, and prone to rosacea flare ups. I would consider myself combination dry with oily t zone. Here are my quick thoughts on each product: ORIGINS - Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash this face was is OK. It’s definitely affordable but it gives your skin the same feeling as if you were using a bar of soap—very slippy and tight. If my skin were oily I would probably like this, but I can’t recommend it for dry or sensitive skin. Allies of Skin - Triple Hyaluronic Antioxidant Hydration Serum OOF! I won this in a giveaway on Instagram. I had heard such amazing things about it but it ended up wrecking my skin. It contains some fruit acids as well as fragrance so it burned up my skin. This was the only thing I changed in my routine and I went from minimal redness and acne to a full face of irritation and breakouts. You can’t pay me to use another allies of skin product. FARMACY - Honey Butter Beeswax Lip Balm this literally made my lips PEEL. I just needed to declutter it for my own sake!! It seems Farmacy’s ingredients are all just a no from me dawg. Awake - Lip Therapy Lip Mask if you hate the goopy, stickiness of the laneige lip mask you will hate this one too...it’s even worse! I will say that it does a great job of hydrating my lips but I can’t get over the stickiness. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner I loved this toner!! Until I was 7/8ths through the bottle. It started immediately pilling and irritating my skin. Super disappointing. I also no longer support this brand. I used it as a hydrating step in my routine after cleansing but before serums. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer I really love Biossance products but this one was a miss. You would probably like it if you have oily skin! But it just gave me a weird affect like my skin just drank it up and left nothing to actually moisturize my skin after. Supergoop! - Defense Refresh (Re)setting Mist SPF 40 * THE DEVIL SPRAY! It smells like straight up chemicals. Not even sunscreen. Just chemicals. It burned my skin!! I would even shake it up for a good 30-60 seconds before applying but my skin was not having it. *gifted by the brand PEACE OUT - Acne Healing Dots These are worth every penny. Hands down the best pimple patches I have ever used! They’re a little pricey but worth it. COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch These are my favorite drugstore pimple patches. Not as effective as the Peace Out dots but I highly recommend them to everyone!! Any questions about these products? #CheriePartner

🌼My Current Faves🌿
I'm in my early 20s and I have oily acne prone skin. It is very oily in hot weather but it becomes more combination during the winter months. I also almost never wear foundation. If and when I use makeup I usually just do my eyes and a little bit of blush. I try my best to keep my skin clear of acne and blemishes. For the past few months I've been trying new products. Some were good, some bad. These are my current 5 favorite products. FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm This cleansing balm is amazing. It removes my eye makeup and sunscreen so effortlessly. It has no overwhelming scent. I really really recommend this for those who wear foundation and makeup everyday. Kate Somerville - EradiKate Acne Treatment Perfect to get rid of acne overnight. I use this everytime I get an annoying pimple. The smaller pimples dissappear overnight, the big deep ones take 2 or 3 nights to dissappear but this product speeds up the process leaving no scars. I use a q-tip to apply the product. FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask This is definitely one of my all time favorite masks and I own A LOT of masks because I enjoy the little spa experience at home. This mask is weird in a good way because it has a very thick honey like consistency which I don't mind because it turns into a white cream when you massage it into the skin. I leave it on for 15 minutes and it feels so warm, not a burning sensation but like someone is hugging your face, this is a 10/10 mask. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser This cleanser is so gentle on my skin. It smells like a salad but it is not overwhelming. This does not irritate me, the bottle is beautiful glass, and my skin looks so healthy after using this cleanser. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask This was one of my first ever skin care products I purchased from Sephora. I got my first jar years ago when I was a teenager. I still repurchase this little watermelon glass because it reminds me of the beginning of my skin care journey. I love the smell, it feels amazing on the skin as it is very cooling. I sleep with this mask on sometimes and my face looks bright and hydrated in the morning.

Acne scars and dark spots are disappearing
I’ve had acne breakouts constantly since I was 13 and have scars and dark spots. I’ve tried so many acne products but the Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment has worked wonders on my skin. I’ve used it every night after my normal skin care routine and leave it on overnight and wash it off in the morning. The results have been stunning! I’ve never seen anything work so fast and be so effective. It can dry your skin out a little but I have pretty oily skin to begin with so I haven’t had any issues with it. I’ve used this product for about a week but already has very promising results! Can’t wait to see the long term effects! So far I’m absolutely in love with this product!!

OTC Epiduo Dupe Part 1
**Disclaimer: This post is not meant in place of medical advice. It's best to consult a dermatologist about skin concerns when possible. This is another long one, y'all. I've broken it up into two posts to allow adequate explanation, but please, PLEASE, stick around to read part 2. Failure to properly use the products mentioned can result in skin injury!! WHAT IS IT? For those who don't know, Epiduo is a topical acne medication available by prescription only. It's two active ingredients however, are available over the counter. Epiduo consists of a combination of 0.3% adapalene and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. While you won't find adapalene in that high of a concetraion over the counter, the lower concentration (0.1%) can be just as effective with less irritation. Benzoyl peroxide however, can be found in varying concentrations from 2.5% to 10% with the lower concentrations also being as effective as the higher. HOW DOES IT WORK? For the sake of brevity I'll just give you a brief rundown here. Adapalene adjusts the rate of skin cell turnover to regulate the process. In the case of acne, skin cell turnover is in overdrive. That means new skin cells are being produced while old skin cells are not being discarded properly. These old skin cells, along with sebum and bacteria, clog pores. The regulation of skin cell turnover prevents accumulation of all that gunk thereby keeping pores from being clogged. Adapalene is also renowned for it's anti-aging benefits, but that's another post 😉 Benzoyl peroxide (sometimes abbreviated BPO) penetrates the skin and is metabolized into benzoic acid and oxygen. The oxygen free radicals kill anaerobic bacteria. For a more in-depth look at BPO, see my last post! Together these ingredients prevent clogged pores and limit bacterial growth, addressing two of the main causes of acne. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU? It means that your local drug store can supply you with everything you need to get started with an (almost) prescription strength acne treatment. Here are some adapalene products to consider: DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment CVS Health Adapalene Gel ACNE FREE - Adapalene Gel USP 15G proactiv - Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment And here are some BPO products: Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatment Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel ZAPZYT - Acne Treatment Gel LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Duo (+) *Stores like Walmart, Target, and several drug stores have their own brands of BPO spot treatments which are typically comparable to name brands at competitive prices. *Make sure to check the concentration of BPO. In this instance, the lower the better. Stay tuned to find out how to use this hack and to hear about my product picks explained.

Blackhead removing strips
I’ve been buying these Biore nose strips for years. Basically since I was a teenager. These small strips work like a magnet to remove blackheads. I have most of my blackheads in my nose area and these literally peel off all of my impurities. I have tried multiple different blackhead removal methods and this one by far works the best for me. I apply one strip to wet skin after cleansing and leave it on for the maximum amount of time which is 15 minutes. You may remove it earlier if the strip has completely dried off. Once you remove it there may be some slight residue on your nose from the strip but you can easily remove with warm water. It’s really fascinating to me to see the strip pull out so many visible impurities from my face. I think this is a pretty fair deal for what you get and it’s an easily accessible product. This may not work for you if are in need of a more deep cleansing treatment but for the price you pay it’s worth a shot. The small count of strips retails at $6 for an 8 count box.

Blackhead Strips
Bioré - Nose + Face Deep Cleansing Pore Strips These Biore strips are made to suck ALL of the blackheads from the pores on your nose and ooohhh boy does it work! My pores are basically non existent after the use of these strips. Once you apply them to a wet nose, they dry down to almost a paper machete type of material. When you pull it off you can literally see all of your blackheads stuck to it! 🤢 I’ve used these strips for years now and they are always my go to because they work!! I struggle with large pores so I need something that removes the nasties. I love these so much. Great deal, you get 14 of them for $7.99. I recommend to anyone looking for a product to ACTUALLY remove blackheads! 5 out of 5 ⭐️

Helpful and less than $20!
So far, I’m loving this! I think it’s doing a wonderful job at clearing some of my blackheads and general acne. It is a BHA, so make sure not to use it with other products that have high levels of AHA, BHA, Retinol or Vitamin C. This is best used in the evening as it can make your skin more vulnerable to the sun but if you use it in the daytime use a good sunscreen! The directions say to use it over your entire face but right now I’m just using it as a spot treatment, on my nose and my chin. I would definitely buy COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid again!

Newbie Skincare Routine! Any advice?
So, i've recently had an awakening when i realized that i was slowly (yet, quickly) approaching my 30s (turning 27 in October). Figured, now is a good time to start taking care of my skin and tbh, just had my two kids and it'll feel nice to pamper myself now. I've started dipping my toes into the skincare world quite recently and have done so by watching Skincare by Hyram, Susan Yara, and reading up on all sorts of skincare junkie pages. So far, i've learned the basics and am attempting to incorporate more "serious" products (serums and treatments) into my skincare routine (which was just cleanser, toner, vit c, moisturizer, spf and the ocassional mask). First thing's first: i have oily combo skin. Not acne prone, just the ocassional pimple now and then. I also live in Ontario and have kids under two and workout 3x/week. So that pretty much tells you my state and environment. So i've pretty much laid the whole routine out out in my chart (hehe sorry, i love charts). I had to do it since it was so intimidating to begin with specialized products. I haven't used the REN or Laneige masks, or the TO retinol yet, but am going to this week. Been using the Thayer's tone, SPF and complex 15 for about 3 months now and they've been fine. Everything else has been used twice. I don't cleanse in the morning. Just the thayer's toner and the rest. My issues are probably an oily Tzone, larger pores and uneven skintone. I'd love any tips, advice or Feedback! Thx!

Breaking The Myth: Glycolic Acid & Retinoids
Breaking The Myth: Glycolic Acid & Retinoids
So there’s a thing going around that you shouldn’t mix glycolic acid (AHA) with Retinol (retinoids). ✨ (I will post links to medical studies done and their proven results) ✨ I will say that I have experimented with this for a few weeks and my skin has cleared up tremendously! I just incorporated the glycolic acid but my skin has been fine. I DO NOT have: Sensitive skin Allergies ACTIVE OPEN BREAKOUTS (few minor bumps here and there) Dry Skin (I’m more combo) ”Active New Skin” (I have been using Differin Gel for 3 months Glycolic acid for 2 weeks. My skin is adjusted to actives) If you have any of those this might cause you irritation. 🚨I use this once-twice a week to treat small hyperpigmentation issues and texture irregularities.🚨 Why do professionals not recommend them together? Many professionals see that people experience irritation, sensitivity, and other issues. There’s also a concern that the PH level of glycolic acid will disrupt retinol. This research is outdated and done in a Petri dish NOT skin. There is room for irritation, which you would still experience.. using them separately! I also would not recommend if you suffer from any other issues as stated above, or to introduce everything slowly! My routine: Cleanser philosophy - Nature In A Jar Gentle Detoxifying Cleanser With Agave Amazing gentle cleanser that helps prevent inflammation. (I also recommend CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser) Tone The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Can be drying, I recommend using a hydrating cleanser. Serum: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 🚨Skip this is you’re new to this routine🚨 Treat: SKINCEUTICALS - A.G.E. Eye Complex for Dark Circles HG for dark circles! DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel HG FOR ANY ACNE ! Moisturize: nooni - Applebutter Lip Mask Leaves my lips very smooth CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Very gentle and great for this routine Cliganic - 100% Rosehip Oil I love to mix this in as a extra layer of Vitamin A and to keep my acne at bay. I only add 2 drops to my moisturizer. Links for research: Chandrashekar, B., Ashwini, K., Vasanth, V. & Navale, S.

⚡️EXFOLIATION NIGHT ROUTINE⚡️
⚡️EXFOLIATION NIGHT ROUTINE⚡️
On Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays I exfoliate!! Monday nights are the days I apply my retinol, while Thursday and Saturday I use my regular chemical exfoliant ✨ 🌿CLEANSER- Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser I LOVE this cleanser! I have combination-oily skin, but recently I’ve been trying to hydrate my skin more and it’s done WONDERS for my oil production! This cleanser is not stripping at all and leaves my skin soft and hydrated! ⚡️EXFOLIATOR- 💙RETINOL (Monday’s)- DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel I’ve been prescribed this by my doctor about a year ago and saw a huge difference with my acne. I just started using it again, and I forgot how much it helps. The only con is that I forget how drying and irritating it can be. Once a week is a good spot for me right now at this dosage. ☕️CHEMICAL- YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner This is my first chemical exfoliator and it’s lasting me a longgg time. I enjoy using this as it’s very good at deep cleansing my pores and getting extra dirt out of them. It has a ‘natural’ smell, aka not an amazing one. But still gets the job done! 💧SERUMS- ☁️The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I LOVE THIS it’s absolutely amazing at controlling my oil production and evening out my skin!!! I will say though, I haven’t noticed it help with my acne, but I don’t believe niacinamide is supposed to treat acne. 🌊The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5Just started using this, so can’t really rate it. But I love hyaluronic acid serums so I’m sure it’ll be great :) 💦FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum this could be so good, but I’ve noticed that it burns my face, especially my cheeks when I apply it. Shame. 👀 EYE SERUM- The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG I’ve struggled my whole teenage life with bags under my eyes. It seemed as if it didn’t matter how much sleep I got, I was always puffy and baggy. This is helping reduce the bags so much!! Bless the ordinary 🐘MOISTURIZER- DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream I have been using this for about 2.5 weeks, and i just love the look and feel of my skin after I use it and when I wake up in the morning. It’s plump and hydrated 👄LIPS- LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask this is only 3 stars because honestly I get the same results if I put on carmex before bed. It’s a nice experience with the spatula applicator and everything, but it’s not worth the money.

Help me with my skin problems . I normally have a sensitive skin with dryness. Oily around my t-zone area. Many times I cannot use all skin type products because my face starts to break out easily. Please Help me to figure out a way to get rid of those small bumps on my forehead. Also I get blackheads and pores around my lips and my t - zone. Lately I get black spots on my nose. I tried to use blackhead strips it didn’t help me. Anything would be helpful. Thank you guys. I used to wear a lot of makeup until I started seeing my face not liking it. I completely stopped wearing foundation it has helped a lot to keep my face from breaking out. But occasionally I do break out. A.M routine is simple Wash my face with water. I used to use cerave but it didn’t work with my moisturizer. I switched to 1) philosophy - Purity One-Step Facial Cleanser I am loving it. Moisturizer my face with 2)BOTANICS - All Bright Hydrating Day Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 P.M routine Take off my makeup with 1) GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover Then cleanse my face with 2Neutrogena - Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask It causes me to break out around my hair line. It helps with those small bumps on my forehead. My dermatologist recommended me to use at night. I used to use first aid Beaty hydrated moisturized it started to be to thick for me. Caused me to breakout. I am still trying to find a moisturizer that will work with my skin. I switched to use with 3) BOTANICS - All Bright Hydrating Night Cream The botanics doesn’t go well with my new cleanser. If I get small breakouts I will use a gentle mask to keep my face refreshed and exfoliated. FORMULA 10.0.6 - Get Your Glow On Lately I have been using to gently clean my face withSKYORGANICS - Dead Sea Mud Mask Spot treatment the best for me work with breakouts HANHOO - Blemish Patch Or Melaleuca - Clarity Acne Spot Treatment

P.M. Routine ✨
P.M. Routine ✨
After seeing a dermatologist, I have started using clindamycin gel in the AM and tretinoin cream in the PM for my persistent acne. I also have dry, sensitive skin so I am taking things slow. For two weeks I’ll be using the tretinoin cream every three days, then every other day for two more weeks, and then I will start using it every night as prescribed. Here is my P.M. routine! GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover This is the first component of double cleansing. I use this to remove my sunscreen. I gently wipe the product on using a fabric/reusable “cotton” pad. CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser This completes my double cleansing! It’s a gentle, creamy cleanser perfect for dry & sensitive skin. My derm highly recommended CeraVe products! I will keep repurchasing this product because I love it so much. PAULA'S CHOICE - Enriched Calming Toner This is a new addition to my routine, and I am already in love with it! I apply it using a reusable fabric pad. It leaves my skin feeling soft and less irritated. It’s a milky texture. PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega + Complex Serum This is also a new addition to my routine. I like it, but I do not love it. I will be trying the Krave Great Barrier Relief serum when I’m out of this. CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream I absolutely love this stuff. It’s thick and perfect for dry, sensitive skin at the end of the day. It moisturizes and protects my skin. OBAGI - Tretinoin 0.025% Cream This was prescribed by my dermatologist. I apply it after my night cream to help provide a barrier to decrease sensitivity. I use a pea-size amount and dot it onto my cheeks, chin, nose, and forehead before blending it in.
