Fungal acne, is not actually acne. 🤫
Hi, thanks for reading me in advance. ✨ Okay, let’s began with What is fungal acne? Fungal acne is a type of yeast infection in your skin’s hair follicles. It is not acne, but it looks like acne. Most of the dermatologist find difficult to diagnose this since the majority of the time looks like acne. That’s probably why most of products that help to get rid of acne, does not work for this. What are the causes? Fungal acne (Malassezia Folliculitis) feeds from oil and sebum that your face produces, and it usually grows around your chin or forehead. They are pretty uniform in size, and it might come with some itchiness too. So if you live in a tropical weather, if you have oily skin, if you practice sports, you might have a high probability to develop fungal acne. Ingredients to look for/ avoid while having fungal acne: Ingredients to look for: Niacinamide, controls the excess of oil and sebum. Salicylic acid, is an anti fungal ingredient. BHA, helps to prevent fungal acne as well. I Believe it or not some shampoos with Ketokonazole ingredient (specially shampoos that are anti dandruff) works for fungal acne. Sulfur (avoid benzoyl peroxide products with sulfur please) Honey, which is anti fungal and an anti inflammatory. Ingredients to avoid: Facial oils Moisturizers with heavy oils (avoid overusing moisturizers as well) Stay away from routines that have a lot of hydrating products, in other words, minimize your routine. Products that I suggest: Serum THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum BHA PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator Moisturizer CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion Shampoohead & shoulders - Instant Oil Control Anti-Dandruff Shampoo Cleanser CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser Sunscreen CeraVe - Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 For Normal To Oily Skin Sulfur De La Cruz - Sulfur Ointment, Acne Medication, Maximum Strength Also I suggest to check the list of ingredients of your products in the website sezia.com To check which products contribute to your fungal acne, or which one helps. 😋 Make sure to always get a dermatologist diagnosis, because like I said fungal acne treatments are very different from acne treatments. Don’t make the mistake to treat it with acne products because it will make it worse. I hope this little info helped you! And I wish you a happy day. 🌞

If you have acne in this area, this might be why
So for the past month my skin has really been going thru it. I’ve been having acne and closed comedones all along my cheek, chin, and jaw, to the point where my skin almost feels like sand paper. Truthfully, I don’t let it affect me too much. I know I’m a human being and acne is completely normal. So there’s no need to take it out on my self confidence or self worth that I worked so hard on! That being said it’s still my body talking to me, and it’s still something to treat! If you sprained your ankle and knee accidents happen and everything will be ok, you’d still treat it! So even though I know I’m still ok and healthy and my skin is going thru a phase, I can’t ignore that it needs treatment. I have a pretty great skincare routine. YTTP kale cleanser, chemical exfoliant 1-2x a week, top tier moisturizers and serums and evening curology! But for the past month NONE of them have worked on me! So I finally went to a dermatologist because this clearly is way above my knowledge as a self-proclaimed skincare junkie. I did a televise and paid my insurance co-pay if $20, and after sending my derm photos of my skincare and a ton of other info on my the verdict was..... Hormonal acne caused by too much testosterone production! My doctor let me know that the placement of my acne, along the cheek, jaw, and chin, is 100% hormonal and that acne that closed comodones and acne he was seeing on my face is due to over production of sebum because of my body overproducing testosterone. He also said that this is super common among women over 25! I felt relieved to finally pinpoint what exactly was causing my acne (because I didn’t change anything in my diet or routine and just months before my skin was clear) and I was prescribed epiduo forte Spironolactane, a pill that blocks testosterone He also advised me to chuck my skincare routine and just use CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser as a wash and CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion along with the AM version as well. I am so happy I went to a derm because I would’ve been trying product after product feeling hopeless! I should receive my prescription later this weekend and I also have a 6-week check in coming up, so I will let you guys know how it goes :) If you have any q’s about seeing a dermatologist IRL or online, drop them below and I’ll do my best to answer them.

💓The Magic Ingredient Your Skin Can't Live Without!💓
I have allergy-prone skin especially when the season changes. My nose will dry up and flake very easily, causing itchiness. I'll always use squalane oil, when these issues come up because it's moisturizing and soothing. You may wonder what squalane is? Squalene, is naturally produced by the body. More specifically, it's produced by the sebaceous (oil) glands in our skin, which helps to keep the skin moisturized. Unfortunately, for all of us, our natural production of squalene slows significantly after the age of 30. Also, natural squalene isn't very stable, for skin-care purposes, we make it goes through a saturation process to become squalane, which is the version that makes it into our skin-care creams, face serums and oils to make our skin looks hydrated and young. If you are also interested in the great ingredient, let me introduce you two popular squalane skincare products — Haba Squalane Whitening Oil and The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane I made a comparison and it may be helpful if you'd like to try one of the: As for the texture: Absorption: Haba > The Ordinary. I think the Haba Squalane Oil is more easily absorbed as your face will feel a bit oily for a while after applying The Ordinary Squalane Oil. Price: Haba-$32.00 for 30ml The Ordinary-$7.90 for 30ml I have to say, The Ordinary is really affordable. Effectiveness: Haba > The Ordinary. I think both repair my skin well but The Ordinary sometimes causes acne breakouts because I have combination-oily skin. To sum up, I prefer to choose Haba. Lastly, I want to talk about how I use squalane oil: After washing my face and spraying some mist, I'll mixCeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion and a drop of the squalane oil together then massage them onto my face. I'll add a facial cream in fall and winter but not in summer. I'll also use it by mixing it with my liquid foundation so that my makeup doesn't separate or become pasty.

“Simplicity is key” is not a cliche
I’m a chemistry graduate weening her way into the personal care sciences to make effective skincare and makeup that has a long lasting effect on the way your skin treats you. I have a deep passion to help people around me understand what the hell is going on with their skin. More often than not, the issue is... we be doin too much. I don’t have problematic skin per say but she is sensitive, picky, and temperamental. For a while I fell down the 10 step skin care routine rabbit hole. I put a toner on my face, a serum, another serum, aloe Vera gel, and two heavy moisturizers. I thought that would make me glowy. Wrong. Instead what happened was my skin started growing bacteria. Fungal acne, my new worst enemy. There was too much going on. I had little spots on my forehead I couldn’t get rid of. So like any other skin care junkie I decided to combat it with even MORE products. When that didn’t work, I thought about how my skin was in high school. A single pimple during my time of the month and that was it. Why wasn’t my skin fussy back then? It’s cuz I didn’t do much back then. I scaled back. I used simple skin care with simple ingredients. I used skin care from the same brand to see if the way they work together benefitted me. Low and behold, my fungal acne was defeated. But then came eczema. As I’ve gotten older, my seasonal allergies have taken over my life. Not only do I have to go out of my way to keep itchy eyes and sneezes at bay, but eczema so graciously decides to find a home under my eyes. Insert eye creams. Insert... two eye creams. Truly a dynamic duo. All the products tagged here are my holy grail items. I’m loyal to them and will die for them. They continually fix my skin when she’s acting up and give her a pat on the back when she’s behaving. I’m back on my cycle of getting one blemish per month and I keep that at bay with DifferinGel & acne patches. Sometimes when we cut back, our skin will thank you. Tips: Don’t wet your face before putting this cleanser on. Weird. I know. But don’t. Let your dry skin drink this in first. Then add water to foam it up after it’s completely rubbed in. Your skin will feel 10 times more moisturized after cleansing this way. Don’t towel dry your face. Let it air dry. Pat the water in. Use a hand fan. A sopping wet face? Yeah. That’s what we want. Letting your face air dry allows your face to drink that water! The Hyaluronic acid serum retains water from the air and the water already on your skin. Youre giving your serum a boost if you let your face air dry. That’s where the moisture will be retained from.

✨ nighttime skincare routine video! ✨
Someone asked me to share my skincare routine so here is a video of my nighttime routine! I usually like to shower in the evening to get the dirt and sweat from the day off my body and to ensure I am clean when my head hits the pillow. My skincare routine actually starts before I hop into the shower. I always always double cleanse, so before I hop into the shower, I remove the makeup, sunscreen, and dirt off my face with BOBBI BROWN - Soothing Face Cleanser Oil . I love this oil cleanser because it’s soothing, it melts my makeup and sunscreen off, and I can feel my dead skin flakes coming off my face. Then while I’m in my shower, I use the LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser . It feels milky and gel-like for a great hydrating cleanse! As soon as I step out of the shower, I wrap my hair in a towel and get to moisturizing my body. My current body lotion is the Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion . I don’t even touch my face. It does dry up a little when I’m lathering up my body, so before I continue with the rest of my skincare routine, I splash some cold water on my face and neck so it’s prepped for my routine. Sometimes I’ll let my face air dry a bit (until it’s still slightly damp), but other times I’ll lightly remove the excess water with a face towel. Then I go in with the following products to get my nighttime glow: Toner: PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner Hydration: Curél - Moisture Facial Lotion Enrich (3 pumps) HERITAGE STORE - Vegetable Glycerin(I got min from a CVS, it’s not Heritage Store but any pure vegetable glycerin works, mix 2 drops with Curél facial lotion) The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 (can’t wait to finish this up and try out THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum) Treatment: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Eye Cream: GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask Moisturizer: CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion Lips: Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectant Let that sink in and dry for a few minutes Acne Treatment: #Perrigo - Tretinoin Cream 0.1%[products]#[FiveStars] (prescription only) #Allergan - Azelex Azelaic Acid Cream 20%[products]#[FiveStars] (prescription only) Antioxidant: dear, klairs - Fundamental Watery Oil Drop Moisturizer: CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream Oil: The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil (2 drops) #365 Everyday Value - 100% Essential Oil Tea Tree[products]#[FiveStars] (1 drop mixed in with rosehip oil) Eyebrows and Eyelashes: TROPIC ISLE LIVING - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Lmk what you think! ✨💞✨💞

HOW TO GET YOUR MAN ON A SKIN CARE ROUTINE!💞
Me being the skin care junkie that I am, my boyfriend is forced to listen to me rant about products, sales, ingredients, & my good (and bad) skin days. Eventually, I dragged him into liking it to! (kind of). I've peaked his interest...and now he understands the concept & importance of skin health. Eventually he started a routine, & now enjoys it! He has resilient, combo skin with an occasional blemish, but overall his skin is pretty good! He just needs the basics, no crazy treatments or harsh products. Just a cleanser, SPF, and moisturizer. He's been using the CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser , the CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion and the CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 The cleanser isn't abrasive & stripping like his previous Neutrogena Deep Scrub! 😳 Also, the Niacinamide & Hyaluronic Acid in these reduced his pores, redness, & smoothed his skin. And now he's using SPF too!! 😆 These are fast absorbing, light-weight, quality products perfect for his skin! 💯 I promise, they're ways to get your man to start a skin care routine too, without forcing him to watch Hyram... Don't over-complicate it! 🗯 Simple is best. You don't want to overwhelm him, or make it seem long & time-consuming. Don't choose products with girly packaging! 💟 If he's into it, then go for it! But most of the time those girly, shiny products with cute names don't sound appealing to them. Especially just getting into it. He needs to realize it's about skin health!🏥 Let him know its just a way of taking care of yourself. And that makeup and skincare are different things! Because my boyfriend would mix them up all the time. I honestly don't think he knew the difference...which made him more hesitant. Do it together!👥 If you guys live together, start dedicating time in the bathroom before you go to bed to just unwind. Have him try your products, or do a skin care routine together! Make it enjoyable and a memorable experience, so it sets a positive impression. Consistently show him products and explain what they do! 🧴🧼 What peaked my boyfriends interest was me talking to him about products all the time, & what they fix! I would catch him complaining about his skin over a pimple or redness, and I would tell him about an ingredient or product that would help that issue. It intrigued him! Consider fragrance free, light-weight products that fit his skin type! ✅ The biggest complaint I hear from guys and skin care is that it feels greasy, heavy, or sticky. The purfumey smell is a big one too. So avoid those things. And make sure to talk to him about his skin type & properly match what products would be best for him! Make sure he STAYS on the routine. Remind him about it, & don't forget to compliment his skin! 💞 I still try to remind my boyfriend, but at this point he always remembers. Also, COMPLIMENT his skin!! If he's starting a routine, he wants to know you see results. He wants to look good in your eyes!
