dehydrated skin no more! 🌵
did anyone else do a HUGE Paula’s Choice haul over Black Friday/Cyber Monday? I did! I picked up a few items from their 30% off sale but my favorite has been their PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 8 Percent AHA Gel Exfoliant 🧴skin type: combo (oily/dehydrated), formerly acneic, light/medium skintone PC’s 8% AHA gel can be used daily because of it’s gentle gel formula. unlike BHAs, AHA are a bit more gentle and moisturizing and I typically recommend AHA for those with dehydrated or dry skin. though my skin is oily, I have a TON of dehydrated areas between my eyebrows and around my mouth, so AHA is perfect for me since it hydrates and sloughs off any skin dryness at the same time. I put this on after cleansing my face and follow up with a heavy nighttime cream: FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Pink Grapefruit I used to use #acne.org - AHA+ (Glycolic Acid - 10%)[products]#[FourStars] but I felt like it was a bit harsh and I didn’t care for the smell. PC’s AHA is super gentle and doesn’t sting my face and I’ve used it daily since I received it. it feels really cooling going on and also has helped decrease my stubborn flaky skin on my forehead which was my end goal! ⭐️OVERALL RATING: 5/5! would purchase again, especially as a more affordable and accessible AHA option. love that I can use this daily!

I struggle a lot with scarring. I have hugeeeee pores and nothing i do seems to help. I was washing my face with PAULA'S CHOICE - Clear Pore Normalizing Cleanser but just recently Switched over to CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin I use Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum in the mornings Then The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Then earth science - Perfect Hydration, Oil-Free Moisturizer It is oil free and unscented ! I then finally use PAULA'S CHOICE - Youth-extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 That is my morning routine. At night i do the same cleanser then i use The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 8 Percent AHA Gel Exfoliant ACURE - The Essentials 100% Plant Squalane Oil earth science - Perfect Hydration, Oil-Free Moisturizer I exfoliate once a week with YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial I don’t get too many zits anymore. I thought I had fungal acne but I’m not quite sure I do. Really struggling with blackheads, enlarged pores and scarring. For vitamins i recently began taking these again: LOVE THEM HUM - Daily Cleanse Detox Supplement And started vitamin A, vitamin b5, and zinc. I also take a probiotic from Trader Joe’s and recently bought these and will be starting them soon as well. #Hum - WING MAN[products]#[FiveStars] Which includes supplements that detox the liver. Im not sure if I’m overdoing it but i just am getting desperate. It might not look that bad but it really makes me self conscious. Any advice is very appreciated 🥰

What ingredients could be contributing to acne??
This is my day and night routine. I definitely have improved my skin but I still am having breakouts. I’m not sure if it is avoidable, since I have to wear a mask all day at work. I don’t use the exfoliants if I feel my skin is inflamed or irritated, but everything else I use daily. If I don’t wear makeup, I skip the cleansing oil.
