EXFOLIATING ACIDS & How Not To Overdo It!!!👀✨💖
EXFOLIATING ACIDS & How Not To Overdo It!!!👀✨💖
Exfoliating acids are everywhere now and so many new products are about exfoliating the skin to “reveal brighter, smoother skin”. In the age of exfoliating now, it’s so easy to overdo and can easily result in harming the skin instead. Here are my favorite exfoliating acids (and products) and how I use it so I don’t damage my skin! Lactic Acid: A super gentle acid that exfoliates the top layer of skin and removes dead skin cells. I find this to be the most gentle of the acids and can be used everyday. I love fresh - Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence because I use it as an essence treatment. This is a liquid formula that easily sinks into the skin and “primes” the skin for the next products. It’s also a hydrating formula! Azelaic Acid: Another more gentle exfoliating acid that helps improve the appearance of blemishes and fade post-acne marks. I love this PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster because it can be mixed into your moisturizer and boost the effectiveness. I love that this speeds up the healing process of my acne marks because then I get clearer skin quicker! Salicylic Acid: One of the most effective exfoliating acids for treating and preventing acne! It exfoliates deep into the layers of skin and removes dead skin cells. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator is a super strong and effective formula that I like to use when I’m breaking out A LOT. It’s too harsh on my skin to use daily but once a week is fine. I also love LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin which I use every night to wash my face. It’s just as effective and not too strong for daily use because it’s a wash off product and doesn’t stay on the skin. Glycolic Acid: Easily one of the strongest and deeply exfoliating acids out there. I find it super effective as a night serum like DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum or as a scrub like ALPHA-H - Micro Super Scrub with 12% Glycolic Acid . I use these products 2 times a week just to keep my skin free of congestion and to maintain the texture of my skin.

LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin I have acne prone skin and although my breakouts have calmed down a lot since finally figuring out which products work for my skin, I still have acne and adding this cleanser into my routine has helped so much. I use this every other night after oil cleansing (if I use it every night I find it makes my skin a little sensitive) I’ve found that using about a nickel size amount, getting it to a full lather and letting it sit on your skin for at least 1 min allows the product to work its best! Plus it has menthol in it which smells so good and there’s something about lathering it up and smelling the menthol that’s so relaxing!! I would recommend this to anyone with acne prone/combination/oily skin and knows that they benefit from salicylic acid in their skincare!

LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin I love this cleanser for oil control. This foaming acne face wash removes excess oil and helps clear acne breakouts. It has mico-exfoliates like lipo-hydroxy acid to remove impurities but is also oil free so it washes without irritating the skin. The consistency is gel-like and lathers up to a nice foam with water. It contains 2.0% salicylic acid to help target excess oil, pimple, blackheads, and white heads for clear skin. It reduces oil up to 47% to combat oil throughout the day. I would recommend this to a friend. It runs for $14.99 for 6oz. I like this cleanser because it is simple, no fuss, no strong odors. It gets the job done. I don’t feel stripped at all post wash and I refreshed.

My top 2 cleansers for acne/combo skin
My top 2 cleansers for acne/combo skin
Part 2 to my routine posts (see previous posts for full routine and in depth product description/reviews) My skin: I have combo skin with hormonal acne that is mostly on my cheeks and jawline. I have some bumps on my forehead and acne scarring on my cheeks. 🧚‍♀️Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser - I have been using this cleanser for close to a year now. It’s true to its name—ultra gentle on the skin! I have never had a reaction to it and the best part is it doesn’t dry out my skin. I have moved this to my PM routine since I’m now incorporating retinol to the PM. The only reason for knocking off one star is that it doesn’t lather much and sometimes I’m not sure it really is doing a deep cleanse. (If you wear makeup most days you might want a second cleanse). 🧚‍♀️LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin - Newish addition to the skincare family. I use this in the AM and I really am liking it. It seems to help minimize breakouts, lathers well, and feels like a clean slate in the morning. It works great in addition to my other acne products as well. Reason for 4 stars is that I’ve noticed it dries out the skin around my nose and corners of my mouth (so I add extra hydrating moisturizer there at the end), and it’s super liquidy—like as soon as I open the cap it comes pouring out. So I wish it had a pump or something a little less messy (I do worry about traveling with it). But overall worth it and well priced! Part 3 will feature my HOLY GRAIL Clinique products that you need if you want to control your acne!

Finally creating an actual skincare routine
Finally creating an actual skincare routine
I’m somewhat new to skincare. For the longest time I had the clearest skin but after college I started to get hormonal acne and some skin texture issues. Morning: Cleanser- LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin. I just got it a few days ago and so far I like it! Prior to this I was using Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser (which I still keep in my shower for after working out-this cleans my skin well but isn’t anything crazy special) Next: CLINIQUE - Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion - I really like this!! It’s absorbs quick and isn’t drying, often these types of products make my skin a little itchy but not this one! (I still use PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator but I do this every other day in the evening, it makes my skin very sensitive but it does work well) Spot Treatment: CLINIQUE - Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel - I’ve been using this for 2 weeks and I love it!! I notice a difference in any new breakouts, it stops them right in their tracks. Feels great too and soaks in nicely. Serums: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - trusty product that I will always use. I’m now adding in bareMinerals - Skinlongevity Long Life Herb Serumto help with my skin appearance and fine lines (~2 weeks of use and so far I like it, it’s hydrating and soaks into the skin. There’s a light scent that I don’t mind either) Moisturizer: CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+- using for 2 weeks and I really it! It’s gel based so it’s absorbs right into the skin. I don’t like heavy moisturizers because they make me oily, so this one is great! Keeps my skin happy even in the colder weather! Nighttime: Same cleanser as morning Same clarifying lotion/exfoliate as mentioned in morning, and same spot treatment Moisturizer: NEW unreleased bareMinerals Ageless Phyto-Retinol Face Cream. I got a full size product for free during a featured event, I believe this will retail for around $62 and be released in the new year. I’ve been using it for 2 weeks and my skin seems to be liking it! It’s a thicker cream so I prefer it only at night. There is a somewhat strong perfume-like scent which I don’t normally mind, but if I use my PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator prior to the cream, it does make my skin a little tingly/itchy. I like that it’s a plant based “retinol” and is less harsh on the skin. Hoping this one works out! Other products: The Ordinary - Retinol 0.5% in Squalane- Bought this prior to getting the bareMinerals Phyto-Retinol Cream. I haven’t tried it yet so no review. Not sure where to add this to my routine if/when I decide to use it. Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum- I got this before my breakouts but haven’t used it since, might try to add
