Fight Acne with Retinoids and Retinol to GLOW ✨
Fight Acne with Retinoids and Retinol to GLOW ✨
🚨If you suffer from stubborn acne (like I have) you may want to consider adding OTC retinoids to your routine! 🔑Retinoids, a vitamin A derivative, are a key player in the skincare industry. Many studies have proven retinoids fight acne, promote collagen, reduce wrinkles and hyperpigmentation to give skin a healthy glow. The good news is now there are plenty of options for Rx strength one now available OTC! 💁🏻‍♀️I only mentioned products I’ve use and that work! Best OTC Rx Strength Adapalene 0.1% proactiv - Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment DIFFERIN - Acne Treatment Gel LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment This former prescription-only retinoid works to unclog pores by slowing pore lining growth and reduces the skin’s sensitivity to inflammation! This is a great introductory retinoid if you’ve never used any before. ✨Prevents pimple formation ✨Speeds blemish healing time ✨Reduces inflammation and redness ✨Evens skin tone and texture ✨Anti-aging benefits Best OTC Retinol Serums Why do I like OTC retinoids better than retinol? Retinol actually takes much longer to work. In fact, because retinol must convert at the cellular level of the skin, it can take 6 months to a year before seeing results. Retinol can be 20x less effective than a Rx strength retinoids. Murad - Retinol Youth Renewal Serum dermalogica - Retinol Acne Clearing Oil SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinoid Serum The Ordinary - Retinol 0.2% in Squalane The Ordinary - Retinol 0.2% in Squalane DRUNK ELEPHANT - A-Passioni Retinol Cream ✨Gentle formulas - good for sensitive skin ✨Decrease fine lines over time ✨Serums contain other skin hydrating ingredients Myths True and False: ⚡️Retinoids thin your skin - FALSE They actually strengthen your skin by promoting collagen production. ⚡️Retinoids have drying side effects - TRUE and FALSE When you start using retinoids, skin may go through a process of Retinization, the adjustment period in which dryness, flaking and redness can occur. Symptoms subside in about 4 weeks and are almost eliminated my using a great moisturizer. ⚡️You should wait till your older to use retinoids - FALSE Retinoids and retinol are safe to use ages 12 and up! 💁🏻‍♀️Right now, I personally use Proactive adapalene 0.1% for acne fighting and anti-aging at the same time! How save retinoids improved your skin?

After 3 months, I perfected my routine for: ✨GLOWING SKIN✨ My concerns: mild acne, moderate cystic acne, large pores, redness, uneven skin tone, prevent aging proactiv - MD Essentials System Value Set Step 1 Cleanse and Rinse proactiv - Deep Cleansing Face Wash This wash is gentile and leaves my face feeling smooth and soft. It has micro exfoliating beads that remove impurities and help keep skin clear. Step 2 Toner proactiv - Balancing Toner I love this toner because I don’t feel dry at all like I usually do with toners. Leaves skin feeling clean and refreshed. Step 3 Daily Sheet Mask and Eye Mask #Well Skincare - Radiance Daily Sheet Mask[products]#[FiveStars] This is a great sheet mask that I use to every other night. It really helps boost my skin's hydration levels and counteract the mild drying effects from the retinoid I use. JAYJUN - Lavender Tea Eye Gel Patch Jar JAYJUN - Green Tea Eye Gel Patch Jar Perfect eye masks! I alternate between both depending on the day. The green tea helps my under eye puffiness and the lavender for anti-aging. Step 4 Serum (formerly my spot treatment step) #Apostrophe - Azelaic Acid Formula (Azelaic Acid 15% + Niacinamide 4%)[products]#[FiveStars] Although Proactiv MD cleared up most of my breakouts and reduced pore size, I still struggled with dark spots and jawline cystic acne. I knew I needed something a little stronger that was also compatible when using retinoids. Apostrophe’s formula reduced my dark post-acne marks and evened my skin tone and texture. It also has anti-aging properties. Pea-size amount recommended all over face. Step 5 Retinoid proactiv - Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment This is an Rx-strength retinoid available OTC! Perfect for people who want to treat acne and prevent aging. It takes 8-12 weeks to see acne clearing results. However I noticed my skin clearing up in about 4 weeks and my only breakouts became hormonal, cystic jawline acne. I didn’t want to use a stronger retinoid due to drying side effects, which did take some time for my skin the get use to. I LOVE this formula specifically; the texture is lightweight and dries quickly. Step 6 Eye Cream and Spot Treatment proactiv - Eye Brightening Serum This eye cream is packed with peptides, vitamins C and E. ORIGINS - Super Spot Remover Acne Treatment Gel It has it name for a reason. Noticeable improvement in pimple size within 24 hours! Better than drugstore spot treatment. Step 7 Moisturizer proactiv - Green Tea Moisturizer Soothing and non greasy! My skin feels hydrated and soft after use. Won’t clog pores and packed with botanicals! Step 8 Face oil eve hansen - Blue Tansy Skin Repair Face Oil A great face oil for acne prone skin! Leaves my skin feeling soothed and moisturized. Especially good for complexion repair.

THE BODY SHOP - Jumbo Tea Tree Oil this really helped disinfect my acne and keep the bacteria out. i used this everyday and night and over time it helped stop my acne from being more red and helped the process in general. i highly recommend this because it was definitely worth every penny. i am on my fifth bottle now!! proactiv - Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment okay well, proactive as a brand did not help my skin at all and just made it dry and stripped. however, this certain product (adapalene gel 0.1%) helped, probably because of that ingredient. i used to have an adapalene gel CREAM but its results paled in comparison to this gel. i used this in combination with my tea tree oil on my chin and jaw area acne. these two also don’t have any white cast so it’s good for poc! Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel this i had mixed feelings about. it has definitely done miracles to my forehead and nose area by taking down pimples one by one! however, it is sensitive to sunlight (benzoyl peroxide) so i usually use it at night only. i am on my second tube right now since the first one was great. however when i first got the second tube, it caused my skin to get really red and the skin was peeling on the spots i put it on. i was very disappointed since the first one was so amazing. but after i started to put less on and very thin layers instead, it was fine. glad to say it’s still a holy grail product. make sure u are well moisturized since this one dries out the skin sometimes! ———————————————————————————— the red tube is called 999 anti-itch cream i believe. it does do very well with bug bites but it has helped with my acne too! no, my acne was not “itchy” but it helped sooth my acne so much and repair my skin on my acne-prone areas. a very nice product and one of my favorites. you can find it on google by searching up “999 cream for acne” to get more information. that’s it guys! i am definitely not a dermatologist or skin expert of any kind, these are just my finds on the journey of trial and error. i have combination skin leaning more towards oily skin. these products definitely won’t help everyone but these have helped me lots. this is also my first post on cherie, i am new to cherie and i hope to learn more about skincare on this app!!

This product is a prescription strength acne treatment that does not require a prescription. The product itself is clear and very smooth and easy for application. During these past two weeks or so, there has definitely been an improvement in my acne, which is very noticeable. It’s said that it can cause more acne before making it better, but that didn’t happen to me. I feel that it is worth it for people with very bad acne like me, but not as an everyday treatment for others. I bought the value kit, which contains four products for $40, and this is typically $36, so it was definitely worth it! proactiv - Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment
