A dermatologist’s recs for maskne 😷✨
A dermatologist’s recs for maskne 😷✨
Let’s talk maskne, the most common chief complaint I’m seeing these days. There are many different causes ranging from acne mechanica (acne caused by irritation/pressure from the masks) to actually being allergic to the mask material. Consider seeing a dermatologist if the following tips/products don’t seem to help: If possible wear a clean surgical mask daily however with PPE shortage, this may not be possible. I use a n95 + surgical mask at work and a breathable, cotton mask outside of work. Avoid unnecessary makeup, don’t forget sunscreen, and don’t skip out on moisturizing. Whether you have dry or oily skin, you still need moisturizer. Oily/combination skin: use a benzoyl peroxide cleanser, a gentle retinoid such as adapalene gel, and spot treatment with either BP or salicylic acid. Start slow and increase as tolerated. Dry/sensitive skin: use a gentle cleanser, gentle moisturizer, and if tolerated consider a spot treatment with either benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Consider slowly adding a gentle retinoid like adapalene gel two to three times a week while using adequate moisturizer. What are your favorite types of masks/maskne treatments?

Differin progress... is this a purge or what?
Differin progress... is this a purge or what?
Sorry this is gross.. I know my skin isn’t pretty right now. Today marks the 4th week I’ve been on DIFFERIN - 0.1% Adapalene Acne Treatment Gel Pump and also my new birth control (yaz). I have literally never, EVER seen my skin this awful and angry. Should I stick it out until the and of 12 weeks? Does this look like a purge or just a flat out breakout?! I’m freaking out.. I don’t even want to go outside looking like this. I’m also using Cetaphil - Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream am and pm, and cleansing with CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser . Not looking to add any more products. Sometimes I use a hydrating toner. The dryness and peeling has subsided but the pimples do hurt, my cheeks are tender to the touch and sometimes itchy but that has gotten better over time also. Please help!!!!! EDIT: i just bought the DIFFERIN - Daily Deep Cleanser BPO 5%, Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatmentand HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Original for Madewellto hopefully combat the horrible breakouts pictured above. just praying it doesnt over dry my skin.

taking advantage of quarantine to finally put together a grown-up skincare routine! i have oily skin and recurring acne, so i’m still trying to figure out how to curb breakouts. anybody else like these products? or have any other recommendations? 💕 • CLEANSER • CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser this just feels good to put on. silky smooth, clean, refreshing. GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover i only use this when i’ve been wearing makeup, which hasn’t been much lately, but it does the trick. it’s also good for when i feel like double cleansing at night. • TONER • THAYERS - Witch Hazel Astringent love this for helping minimize my pores. sometimes i swab it on mid-day if my skin is feeling extra oily. • ACNE TREATMENT • Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatment i’ve been using this for a million years and it’s great for getting acne to disappear as quickly as possible. just an awesome little spot treatment. Clearasil - Rapid Rescue Deep Treatment Wash this is a nighttime acne wash and it seems to work pretty well. it does have an intense chemical smell, which isn’t my favorite. • MOISTURIZER • Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer i love this stuff. my roommate thinks it’s an alien serum since it’s so pretty and blue. putting this on at night just makes my skin feel so hydrated and fancy. plus, it’s super light, which is a godsend for oily skin. Neutrogena - Facial Moisturizer i put this on in the morning because i know i need some spf, but it still leaves me feeling oily even though there’s no oil in it! still hunting for an spf moisturizer that doesn’t smell so sunscreen-y and feel heavy in my skin.

Back acne, or bacne, can sometimes be difficult to treat.   It also can be quite embarrassing for some people, especially teenagers.  It is similar to face acne, in that it is caused by excess oil production and dead skin cells that block the pores.  When bacteria gets trapped in the pores, the acne can be more inflamed and tender.   There are many reasons why people get back acne. Medications Hormones Stress Sweat and dirt Hygiene Genetics Here are some of the best over the counter (OTC) products to help treat back acne. Salicylic acid (SA) wash or spot treatment- My favorites are Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash and OXY - Acne Medication Deep Pore Cleansing Pads  SA is great at controlling oil production and getting rid of dead skin cells that clog our pores.  It is a mild product and a good starting place for mild acne or patients with sensitive skin. Benzoyl peroxide (BP) wash or spot treatment-   I like PanOxyl - Acne Creamy Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 4% Daily Control and Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatment  BP is also great at getting rid of dead skin cells and controlling excess oil production.  It can a more irritating to your skin, so start off using it slowly.  It can also bleach your clothing, sheets and towels, so be careful. Retinoids - LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatmentand Differin Gel are the OTC products I like best.  These are great products for getting rid of dead skin cells and unclogging pores.  Retinoids can be irritating, so start out using it infrequently til you can build up to using it every night.  Retinoids are also great at fading the dark spot that acne leaves behind. Here are some tips to help alleviate back acne. 1.  Wear sweat-wicking clothes or loose fitting clothing 2.  Make sure backpacks or sports equipment doesn’t constantly rub against your back. 3.  Wash immediately after sports or working outside 4.  Use oil free, non-comedogenic products - that includes moisturizers, sunscreens, makeup 5.  Do not pick 6.  Eat a healthy diet low in carbs and dairy 7.  Clean your clothing after every use.  Clean your towels and bedsheets/pillowcases at least twice a week 8.  Keep your hair off your back 9.  If you cannot reach areas of your back to apply acne meds, use a lotion applicator. 10.  Clean sports or gym equipment before and after using it. If over the counter meds and these tips do not keep your acne under control, please seek help from a dermatologist to prevent permanent scars.

Sensitive Acne Prone Routine
Sensitive Acne Prone Routine
Hi there! I have superrrrr sensitive skin that breaks out to everything so I’m here to help out anyone else’s face that hates them too. I have three different night routines that I do in order to not pile on a bunch of products in one day. Am 🦐 splash face with water 🦐 CeraVe - Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 For Normal To Oily Skin 🦐 Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatment I don’t use a cleanser in the morning, with my sensitive skin, washing it twice makes it too overly irritated. Instead, I wash it with water and follow with a gentle skin moisturizer/SPF, and spot treatment as needed. Pm A - Acne-fighting 🦖 CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cleanser 🦖 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 🦖 DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel 🦖 CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin The SA cleanser is very gentle and effective for diminishing breakouts, and doesn’t strip the skin of its natural barrier. This is super important if you are using treatments, as too many can be damaging. I follow up with a water-based serum (niacinamide) that targets oil production, acne, hyperpigmentation, and dark spots. Then finish with an acne treatment and moisturizer. Pm B - Calm routine 🪐 BURT’S BEES - Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin 🪐 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 🪐DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel 🪐 CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin I have a “calm” routine to take a break from other treatments I do during the week. My skin gets really irritated if it’s bombarded with a ton of products so I use this night as a breather for my skin. Typically that means the differin gel as well as niacinamide and moisturizer. Pm C - Brightening routine 🍌 pūrlisse - Watermelon + Charcoal Purifying Cleanser 🍌 The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution 🍌 LUÉ by Jean Seo - BALANCE 🍌DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel 🍌 CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin This one is my favorite! The watermelon cleanser is my favorite thing I’ve put on my face. It’s gentle, brightens, and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight or dull. It makes my skin glowy and supple and I’m close to dying for it. Glycolic acid is a chemical exfoliant that brightens, smooths skin texture, and uneven tone, as well as working as an acne fighter!! It’s greta if your skin can tolerate it. If not, I’d go with The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA. Next, I like to put in a calming serum for hydration and letting my skin calm the f*** down from the exfoliant. Then typical moisturizer and differin gel. I hope this helped for those of you that are looking to treat your face without pissing it off! Good luck to all you SSPs!

✨NIGHT ROUTINE for Smooth Glowing Skin!
✨NIGHT ROUTINE for Smooth Glowing Skin!
I’m not going to review the cleanser or moisturizer because I did that in my morning routine post. Go check it out if you want to know more!! ❤️ But this is my normal night routine that leaves my skin looking pristine! 2. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution I know most of you have heard of this sent-from-heaven product but I just have to weigh in bc its so amazing! The AHAs (glycolic/lactic, etc) lightly dissolve and lift away dead skin cells, resurfacing your skin and promoting cell turnover to give you a fresh baby-like complexion every time. BHAs (salicylic) are oil-soluble and travel deep within your pores to dissolve sebum and debris, cleaning them out and reducing their appearance. Its a deep, blood-red color with the consistency like most other serums and spreads easily around your face and into your nooks and crannies. It does sting a bit, and you definitely feel the need to fan your face to relieve some of the tingling, but that means its WORKING and it goes away after about 5-6 minutes. I personally don’t leave it on for the full ten minutes because its so strong. If your skin is very sensitive and gets irritated/bad reactions from harsh products then I would not recommend it, but this stuff works. If you have milia like myself, I promise you this is like a milia eraser. It also diminishes scarring and hyperpigmentation, and the promoted cell turnover diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I swear your skin will feel like porcelain. I use it every 5 days and my skin really do be GLOWIN ✨✨ 3. The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion I know, you’re not supposed to mix retinols with direct acids because it can be harmful due to the addition cell turnover etc, but on the one day a week basis that I do it, I haven’t found any irritation, likely because this retinoid is SO gentle and even soothing! Theres no purging period or dryness so its a great transition into more intense retinol treatments. I’ve really seen a difference in my pores and over skin texture and quality, I truly believe this product contributes to it! If I’m having an iffy skin day, the next morning I feel like its much clearer and smoother and my pores look great! 5. philosophy - Miracle worker miraculous anti-aging moisturizer I use this moisturizer on my eyes and on any problem areas/dry spots that can use some extra care, on top of my first moisturizer. Let me tell you, this is so lush!! I absolutely love the creamy consistency and it just feels so nice and so plumping. I’m definitely going to look into more of philosophy’s moisturizers! 6. Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatment I gave this 4/5 bc its active is benzoyl peroxide which can be harmful/drying but I still find it to be very effective at drying out pimples and even diminishing scabs when i pick (oops) I’m gonna do a separate review on the lash serum bc im running out of words 🤪
