These have been my holy grail lately. I don’t use them all at once or in the same routine but all of the sudden (5/6 weeks into using most of them excluding the snail mucin) my skin is feeling amazing. I wish it looked better but the texture is better just have to get rid of my pesky acne scars and dark marks. Clindamycin Gel— I used this before I was pregnant and it worked wonders for keeping my skin crystal clear. Sadly I don’t have insurance anymore to cover it so what used to be $10 is now $40 but I’m hoping once my acne clears for good I can just use my Differin. I only use this in the morning after my serums and before my moisturizer and SPF. DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel I use this every night faithfully. I noticed a difference with acne immediately and it keeps improving even after a few flare ups. Holy grail seriously! The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque I am falling in love with the ordinary. I love this mask! I only use it once a week because I alternate with The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution once a week too. I don’t notice the AHA/BHA solution helping that much but I want to stick with it through at least once bottle. It’s ok but I don’t notice any results. But I love how the Salicylic masque feels and leaves my skin feeling. COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence So I was mixed about this at first. I broke out a few bad deep cystic pimples/zits and I wondered if it was this so I stopped using it for a few days and reintroduced it and it seems to be ok cause my skin is so smooth and I notice my acne marks fading within a week. I use so many products but alternate in my routines and all of it finally working! Don’t give up! I am still struggling to get clear skin but bound and determined to make it happen! I will post before and afters soon.

Facial exfoliation pads
First, follow me for more content like this 💖😘. I know I’ve been doing a lot of First Aid Beauty products and you guys are probably getting sick of me😭😭. But I got a value kit and I wanted to get through and have an opinion on each product before I told you guys about them. Today’s product is the Facial Radiance Pads. These pads are formulated with lactic acid, glycolic acid, lemon peel, and Indian gooseberry. Lactic and glycolic acid are AHA’s that helps brighten and exfoliate the skin and help improve the texture. The lemon peel doesn’t really sit right with me because I read that lemon for the skin is insanely bad but I guess that’s only if you’re using an actually lemon on your skin. Im still kinda iffy with the fact that it’s an ingredient. I also think it’s pretty wasteful to have presoaked pads only because it’s just as bad as using single use cotton rounds in my opinion. I also found myself, in the beginning, using more than one at a time because I wasn’t really paying attention when i was picking them out the jar. According to FAB these pads are great for everyday use, and can even be used on sensitive skin. I do notice that my skin has gotten brighter. This has to be my least favorite out of their products. They do sting a little at first but other than that it’s fine. These help with dullness, pores, uneven skin tone and uneven texture. Will I be repurchasing this product? No, but I’m glad i got to try them. They are good for when you’re in a hurry or feeling lazy but i don’t know, i think the bad outweigh the good with this one. Try it for yourself to see if you like it but it might just be a no for me. They come with 60 pads for $34 and 28 pads for $17. I hope this helps🥺💕FIRST AID BEAUTY - Facial Radiance Pads
Skincare for Exercising
I want to share a few tips I use for skincare while exercising. I love running, especially outdoors. It’s important to to modify your skincare routine on work-out days to continue to care for your skin. 1. Start with a clean, make-up free face While you are working out, you want your skin to be able to breath. You don’t want your make-up to settle into your pores. This is easiest when you are working out first thing in the morning. I recommend: Cleanse, moisturizer, spf Exercising with a make-up free face can be more of a challenge if you are trying to fit in a work-out on lunch break or after work.I rarely use face wipes, but this is when I use them. A face wipe to remove make-up, and spf. CLINIQUE - Take the Day Off Micellar Cleansing Wipes for Face & Eyes 2. Always use Sunscreen! This is basic skincare rule that can’t be skipped while working out, especially if outside. I have a separate sport sunscreen for exercising that is waterproof and longer lasting. I recommend: Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion SPF 30 with Sunflower Extract COOLA - Suncare Sport Sunscreen Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Bonus points if you wear a hat if exercising outdoors! 3. Wash your face right after working out This seems like a given, but it is important to remove sweat residue and bacteria immediately after working out. If you are not home face wipes can come in handy again. Also, toner pads can help remove excess dirt & oil. I recommend: FIRST AID BEAUTY - Facial Radiance Pads It’s also helpful to cool skin after your work out to prevent breaking of blood vessels. Splash your face with cool water and wash with a wash cloth. Your skin is also sensitive after working out, so I do a simple paired down routine. No exfoliating, AHAs, or serums with actives. A good calming moisturizer that can help with redness is good to use on these days. I love: FIRST AID BEAUTY - FAB Pharma Arnica Relief & Rescue Mask My routine post work out is: Cleanse, toner, hyaluronic acid serum, moisturizer, (spf if daytime) Hope that helped!

3 Exfoliators for Clear, Smooth Skin
Using the right exfoliator is a must for removing dead skin cells and revealing brighter, youthful skin. These are three of my favorites! Each has a similar function but are diverse in the sense of usability. Fresh Beauty Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash is gentle enough to use daily and functions both as a face wash and exfoliator. Basically, a 2 in 1 for those looking for a multi functional product. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is also gentle enough to use daily but is a rice powder that is activated by water to gently exfoliate skin. I love it because it works for all skin types and is great for sensitive skin without compromising on effectiveness. Fresh Beauty Umbrian Clay Exfoliator - this is one you’ll want to use twice a week. The Umbrian clay helps purifies pores to a max while exfoliating skin. dermalogica - Daily Microfoliant Exfoliator fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash fresh - Umbrian Clay Pore Purifying Face Exfoliator
help me with blackheads, fungal acne, pores!
can anyone help me get rid of these blackheads, fungal acne, and large pores? i don’t know if what i’m using is making it or worse or helping. currently this is my nighttime skincare routine in order: #Amson Naturals - African Black Soap[products]#[FiveStars] dermalogica - Daily Microfoliant Exfoliator The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Benzagel - Acne Gel 5% this was a great product when i first started using it about 3 years ago but it’s not supposed to be used after 6 months and doesn’t work as good as it did the first 6 months i was using it i also use PIXNOR - Facial Cleansing Brush when using the soap and for the morning routine it’s the same products but not the glycolic acid or lactic acid! this has been my skincare routine for over a year and although it has helped my skin it hasn’t gotten better than this in months i’ve tried using Nizoral - Anti Dandruff Shampoo to get rid of the fungal acne but it didn’t really help. i also tried AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay and i can admit i haven’t used it as often as i could have but even from the few times it hasn’t made much of a difference. i’ve also used The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution but again not much help. is there any other products i could use? is my routine making it worse? i’m not really sure what i’m doing is right. also if you have any recommendations for any eye creams i’d appreciate them!

BEST INGREDIENTS FOR ACNE
My favorite acne fighting/treating ingredients 🙌🏼 PC: Me (IG: @skinbymeegan)
PM skincare for acne!
Hi friends❤️ in this post I am going to go through the products I use on nights that I am not using DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel Step 1: First cleanse I raved about theTHE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm in my other PM skincare post! This is one of my favorite products in my whole routine. Very soothing and removes all makeup! Did I mention it’s only $10 freaking dollars?!? Step 2: second cleanse GLYTONE - Acne BPO Clearing Cleanser I just started incorporating a benzoyl peroxide cleanser on the nights I do not use differin because I have never tried benzoyl peroxide for my acne besides spot treatments. Spot treatments with BPO always burn my skin so I thought this cleanser would be a great alternative! It feels very hydrating and non stripping on my skin, it has 4.5% benzoyl peroxide. I can’t give it 5 stars yet because I just started using it, but I will keep y’all updated! Step 3: toner I never use the PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator on the same nights I use the benzoyl peroxide cleanser. But I have loved this product so far. I focus this mostly on my t zone where I get a lot of clogged pores and it seems to be helping so far! Step 4: moisturizer/mask LANEIGE - Cica Sleeping Mask I have been wanting to try this product for a long time because I have a lot of redness from active acne and scarring. I use it as a moisturizer/ leave in mask some nights and it is very soothing and hydrating. It can feel greasy if you put too much on, a little goes a long way! I am not 100% sure if I would repurchase because I haven’t had any drastic results and it is a bit pricey at $34. Step 5: pimple patches! I use HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Original for Madewell almost every night on any white heads I might have and they keep me from picking yayyyy!!

How many masks are too many...?
I used to love masking! I’d do at least 1 to 2 a week. Now I’ve gotten lazy and just don’t do them and I have so many I need to start using before they expire! For me, I feel having an exfoliating mask and a hydrating mask is all you need. Unless your using the product consistently you’re not going to see changes. Masks are great for plumping up the skin, adding hydration and even a soft glow. But of all the masks I’ve used I’ve never found long term effects from them (except exfoliating). One way I like to use them is right before a big night (or day) out. To give my skin that added boost. Some that are great for doing so are: FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask (use as a 10 min mask) SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Ginger & Turmeric Vitamin C Jelly Mask And many others that help brighten and hydrate! I will also not go without my exfoliating masks which I do once a week. Some faves are: PAULA'S CHOICE - 25% AHA + 2% BHA Exfoliant Peel YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution HERBIVORE - Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial And a few others I have that I liked to use; BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Tea Tree Detox Mask ELEMIS - Superfood Vital Veggie Mask bliss - Mighty Marshmallow Mask Unfortunately as I said, I just don’t mask as often as I used to. And I feel it isn’t necessary. If you like to then I suggest you get yourself an exfoliating and moisturizing/hydrating mask and you should be good to go. Treatments are where you want to really zone in and specialize your finances for. Is it Friday yet? Ugh! I’ve been down all week with a neck I cannot turn - ouchie! And a migraine on top of that! I’m ready to knock my dogs out cause they are wanting out every half hour (it’s nice here ⛅️) Much ❤️ my skinnies 🍒
Red Face Diaries ft. Herbivore
Lol Let me first preface this by saying I did do a patch test. I made sure HERBIVORE - Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial sat on my skin just underneath my chin area for 10 minutes. Everything was A ok, so I preceded to put the product on my face... I have fairly sensitive skin so I typically avoid masks altogether because I’ve yet to find one that doesn’t burn the sh** out of my face. Luckily, I didn’t actually buy this, this is just a mini sample I got with my birthday haul order. *Le sigh* My face started burning about five minutes in. I washed it off and was left with a hot tomato 🍅 of a face. To be fair, my skin was super soft the next day, mad sensitive still, but soft! I didn’t do much research into the ingredients in the HERBIVORE - Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial so that’s on me. I also have very little experience with acids, so I should have been more prepared! Aside from that though, no products should ever make ones face burn or get red. I just don’t believe that that means the product is “working” lol no.

Saturday Skin Favs
Love all the three products from Saturday skin. It’s great that the product is instagrammable, but Saturday skin is more than just a pretty face... it works great and delivers the result it promises. WIDE AWAKE BRIGHTENING EYE CREAM As far as eye creams go, this is one of the best I’ve used. The texture is more of a dense souffle-like gel than a cream. It hydrates and strengthens the delicate skin around the eyes,helping to reduce puffiness and dark circles. RUB-A-DUB REFINING PEEL GEL This is an exfoliator with a difference… Simply massage the gel into your face as you rub, the formula picks up the impurities and dead skin that clogs pores, causing it to visibly peel off in tiny balls. The result is super-smooth, exfoliated skin, but without the sting that acids and scrubs have. PORE CLARIFYING TONER This toner helps to address the look of skin tone and texture. It has witch hazel, tea tree oil, and red clover. The blend helps create the appearance of a smooth, pore-less complexion.

december challenge 7-10
Ok I've been catching up and I know it's the 19th now so I'm going to post the other ones soon! ￼day 7: favorite exfoliator Glossier. - Solution Exfoliating Skin Perfector ￼day 8: favorite retinoid - I currently don't have any products that are retinoids or retinols so I don't have a favorite one. ￼day 9: multitasking product Glossier. - Balm Dotcom in original, I use it on my chapped nose when I have a cold, on dry skin, and on my lips. My favorites are birthday and coconut. ￼day 10: SOS product My interpretation is that it SOS in this case means maybe the one product you'd use by itself or if you could pick one on an island or something? SOS means help me / save us so the interpretation is up in the air. I'm going to say that mine is the Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream because if I only had one face product it would be this one
My go to exfoliator
Glossier has a really nice range of products that are designed to maintain a stable complexion. Package: The packaging of this product really appeals to me from the millennial pink to the convenient pump dispenser. Texture: This is very easy to apply as it is a watery consistency. I love applying it with a reusable cotton pad. Price: This is a very affordable at $29 CAD and it will last months Glossier. - Solution Exfoliating Skin Perfector I gave this product 4 stars as I found it stung for the first few uses . However once my skin got used to it I saw great results and it has become my go to winter exfoliator.

Too small to decide . . .
Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel I received these as a sample after making a purchase at Sephora on Black Friday. However, there was only 3 treatments in the sample and it’s just not enough to tell if it really did anything. I use the treatments every other day for 6 days as my skin tend to be sensitive and I had never used a chemical peel before. By the third use, I noticed a lot of tingling and even a small burning sensation even when following the directions exactly. My final verdict is still out though, because even though this product can be bought in as small as a 5 pack, I’m just not sure if that is enough time to see results or if it is worth investing in the product.
the secret to flawless base makeup
There’s a lot of brands nowadays that are emphasizing the importance of caring for your skin first instead of trying to simply cover flaws with makeup. Of course makeup is a lot more than that; it’s a creative outlet for many, but I appreciate the efforts to highlight skin health nonetheless. All that to say that makeup and skincare are inextricably related in a lot of ways, including what I want to talk about in this post: using chemical exfoliants to ensure a smooth base for makeup. While this isn’t something I was always aware of, the experts know: in fact, Dr. Dennis Gross actually recommends using his cult favorite Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel in the mornings before makeup because it ensures a smooth, even surface, making makeup apply better. Many people think acids should be used only at night, but that is absolutely NOT true—as long as you wear adequate sun protection, there is no problem with using them in the morning. It’s important to use exfoliants to keep your skin clear of dead skin cells, which can cause makeup to appear uneven or to not stay well throughout the day. It’s also important to stay consistent with them to see lasting results, though those with more sensitive skin may not be able to use them every day. Listen to your skin and find the frequency that’s right for you. So here are just a few chemical exfoliants, though there are nearly endless options out there! The Dr. Dennis Gross pads are the best exfoliant I’ve ever tried—they’re amazing at lightening dark spots and smoothing texture, and I notice a definite difference in my makeup when I use them in the mornings. Sadly, they are very pricey, which is why I don’t use them every day and I always keep other options on hand. I also love the PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator as a gentle everyday exfoliant. The salicylic acid has been amazing at helping reduce my acne and texture, and although the oilier texture put me off at first, now it feels moisturizing (maybe due to the green tea extract?), which I really appreciate given that it’s an exfoliant. This is a much more affordable option, at $29.50 for 4oz. I’ve used both the tarte - Knockout Tingling Treatment Tonerand the pixi - Glow Tonicin the past, though I haven’t had a chance to crack open these particular bottles. The glow tonic uses glycolic acid as its main exfoliant, while the knockout toner has a hefty blend of acids and is *very* strong—like, I use acids frequently and even I couldn’t use this every day. Last, I haven’t tried the REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Toneryet, but I’m interested to see how the lactic acid works for me since I haven’t used many lactic acid products. Does anyone else notice a difference in their makeup when they forget to exfoliate? #CheriePartner

This is my one month update on my skin. I have been using tretinoin cream every 3 nights & and the clindamycin phosphate lotion morning and night. I then decided to change my skincare routine to a Korean & Japanese skincare, and I’m very happy I made the choice. On December 3rd I went to get a customized facial and my esthetician told me I have acne that is clogged pores underneath my skin, so she did a deep extraction and in another few weeks I’m going to get one more done just to make sure they are all out. FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm I was using the dhc deep cleaning oil but it was too thick for me so I switch to this and it is light and not stripping, good for a oil cleanse or a first cleanse TATCHA - The Rice Wash Skin-Softening Cleanser this cleanser is a nice hydrating cleanser and it does not strip my skin at all Krave - Kale-Lalu-yAHA I just started using this exfoliant but I really like it and I seen results right after I used it Krave - Great Barrier Relief this serum is another I just started using but I love it, and it have a nice smell to it Krave - The Beet Shield this sunscreen does not leave a white cast on my face, and I don’t feel greasy after PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster this products is helping me get rid of my acne marks that I have from my facial PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Niacinamide Booster I just love this!

My lazy night routine
I love skin care but sometimes I just don’t have the patience or the time for a full routine. However I am not willing to compromise my skin condition so I wanted a quick but very effective routine which is how I came out with this one. N°7 - Radiant Results Nourishing Cleansing Balm I never go to sleep with makeup on so that is never a step that I skip out on. This cleansing balm gently breaks down makeup and is soothing for the skin #Acure - Seriously Soothing Cleansing Cream[products]#[FiveStars] This is a gentle cleanser that foams while still being hydrating. VERSED - THE SHORTCUT Overnight Facial Peel This is a very gentle exfoliating treatment. This is a AHA cream that is massaged into the skin and is hydrating enough for anyone other then dry or dehydrated skin. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration This is my go to moisturizer as it is deeply nourishing

AVARELLE- Acne Cover Patch
Current Product Line-Up
My Current Faves: Herbivore Lapis oil- so calming, soothes all redness and irritation. Eminence Stone crop hydrating mist- new purchase. Extremely hydrating, smells nice. Still figuring out if it’s going to be an every day toner or just when I need extra hydration. Herbivore Blue Tansy- Love this mask! Instantly soothes and improves redness and inflammation. Will definitely repurchase
