Exfoliating Sensitive Skin 101☀️
Exfoliating Sensitive Skin 101☀️
I have combination skin that is very sensitive and acne-prone so I need to be very careful when I exfoliate that my physical exfoliants aren’t too harsh and my chemical ones aren’t too strong. ☀️Physical exfoliants contain a rougher material like sugar or grains and when used against skin, you remove dead skin cells and reveal newer skin. Some can be too harsh and the Apricot Scrub by St Ives is an example of that. Some are so harsh they actually leave tiny cuts in the skin, leaving it prone and exposed! There are some that I like such as the Acure Blueberry Scrub and I find that is gentle enough to work for me on occasion. I only use a physical exfoliant maybe once a week and twice a week at most. It’s important to not over-exfoliate and when I do use a physical one, I prefer ones that are very gentle. One that I love is the Sand & Sky Enzyme Powder Polish which is my current favorite physical exfoliant. It’s so gentle and the ingredients are amazing for brightening and removing impurities. ☀️Chemical exfoliants are acids that get rid of dead skin that come in various concentrations. These include AHA, BHA and PHA acids. With regular usage, skin can feel smoother and look more even. It can also help with clogged pores! I love Farmacy’s Honeymoon Glow for this personally but I’ve also heard good things about the PHAT Glow Facial by Olehenrikson! The important thing is to listen to your skin and what it needs that day! Exfoliating doesn’t need to be done constantly if your skin is too sensitive for that. I’ll do it about two times a week and tend to alternate between physical and chemical exfoliants. FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum SAND&SKY - Australian Emu Apple Enzyme Powder Polish

EXFOLIATION 101! How, what, when & why!
EXFOLIATION 101! How, what, when & why!
PHYSICAL VS CHEMICAL + SERUM VS SCRUB VS TONER! Which will you choose?! Hi everyone, welcome to Exfoliation 101. Let’s jump right into the lesson! 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭? Exfoliation is the removal of old and dead skin cells on the surface. AKA it’s how you get rid of dry, flaky, and crusty skin. 𝐰𝐡𝐲? Exfoliation removes the layer of dead skin cells that often clog our pores and keep our skin care products from penetrating deeper into the skin. Essentially, you should exfoliate to reveal brighter, softer, and healthier skin. Your serums and moisturizers will perform a lot better. 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐧? 2-3x a week MAX. Over exfoliation can cause irritation and breakouts! I personally only exfoliate 2x a week for my dry skin. 𝐡𝐨𝐰? PHYSICAL - granular particals like powders, sugar, oatmeal, fruits.. etc. * scrubs can often be abrasive and do more harm than good. Always be gentle, stay away from your eyes, and don’t over do it. I recommend physical scrubs that have granular particals that are gentle and or dissolve. CHEMICAL - Acids in the form of serums or toners! * There are many types, so read below to find which one might fit your concerns best. Skip a few days in between use and WEAR SPF! ✦ AHAs > Glycolic & Lactic Acid. * works on the skin surface. Mainly helps skin texture. Can be synthetic, but mostly derived from fruits. ✦ BHAs > Salicylic Acid & tropic Acid. * deeply penetrates pores, helps skin texture & unclog pores and remove excess sebum. Ideal for acne prone skin. ✦ PHAs > Gluconolactone & Lactobionic Acid. * less irritating. Doesn’t penetrate as deep as AHA/BHAs 𝐦𝐲 𝐟𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐞𝐱𝐟𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐬↴ GOOD MOLECULES - Pineapple Exfoliating Powder The best gentle physical exfoliation. + made from rice powder! Just add water and start to *gently* scrub away. + also includes pineapple enzymes for some chemical exfoliation as well. + great for sensitive skin & exfoliation beginners. + brightens and smooths. + all skin types. + affordable! $18 FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum Multi-tasking overnight serum with chemical exfoliation BHAs + AHAs and more. + great for texture, hydration, brightening, and clarifying skin. + helps enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, breakouts, dark spots, firmness and skin elasticity. + 14% AHA, BHA, flower acids. + NIGHT TIME ONLY. + rich and silky texture. + doesn’t sting or burn! (I have sensitive skin) + $58. Best bought in a set for a bargain. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Down To Tone Resurfacing Toner Exfoliating Toner Chemical exfoliating toner + 6 acid blend ( basically BHA + PHA ) + exfoliates, clarifies, and brightens. + helps with acne, texture, & dark spots. + use on cotton round. + Use 2-5x per week at night, work your way up to daily use. + tingles + $22

5 Do’s and 2 Don’t’s to treat your hyperpigmenta
5 Do’s and 2 Don’t’s to treat your hyperpigmenta
We all have gone through dark spots I’m sure, whether it’s from an old acne spot, a sun spot or a scar. It’s disheartening when we want that beautiful even looking skin and then there are these dots of red or brown in the way. I have significant acne scarring and hella dry skin from years of cystic acne and destroying my skin.... so I’m going to give you my best tips! Do: Vitamin C! It’s a powerhouse antioxidant ingredient that fights free radical damage that can make these spots appear or even worsen them. It’s proven to lighten up and even skin tone for that beautiful bright glow! I love the Tatcha Violet C mask for weekly use as it somehow just brightens the skin quite instantly! TATCHA - Violet-C Radiance Mask Do: chemical exfoliation. This is your AHA products to dissolve the glue that is holding the dead and damaged skin to the surface. It helps get rid of them so healthier cells can find their way to the surface and shine! Honeymoon Glow from Farmacy is a fan favourite. Take it easy tho, a couple times a week is fine. FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum Or you can do the ordinary peel once a week! The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Do: Niacinamide. This is another superstar ingredient that will brighten up the skin and help those spots look lighter. It’s also good for oil control so that acne doesn’t pop up and cause more spots! The new cream from Caudalie is beautiful and will moisturizer at the same time! CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Moisturizer with Niacinamide Do: Hydrate!! When treating skin concerns it can be easy to just dry the skin out and attack it with treatments. We forget how delicate our skin is. SO HYDRATE AND MOISTURIZE MORNING AND NIGHT!! Your skin will always look more healthy this way. Do: SPF! If you ain’t protecting the skin from damage, all the effort in your skincare is pointless. Protect from the sun who will cause those spots to get worse and even create them. Protect your precious newly exfoliated and brightened skin so it stays healthy. I don’t care the excuses. EVERYDAY! The new one from First Aid Beauty is lightweight, non greasy, gives a slight glow with its tint and works well under makeup FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 Don’t: Over do it. Please keep the chemical exfoliation to once a week for a strong treatment or 3-4x a week for a more regular treatment. Overdoing it will literally make your skin 10x worse and more damaged, red and sore. Don’t: FORGET THE SPF. But also, please keep suntanning or tanning beds and such to a minimum. This will not clear your skin. It’s not worth it if you want clear skin. Bonus: Do not, please, do not pick at your face!! It’s satisfying to pop pimples or scratch a scab, but the scar lasts too long for it to be worth it.

Hey! 👋 it’s been a bit but I am going to try to be a bit more active as I have some products I’ve been using to give you the scoop on! . ——— First up is this lovely set by @caudalie I’ve been using it for a full month now (nights only) so I feel confident giving you my thoughts . Vinoperfect Anti-dark Spot Serum - said to be 62 times more effective than vitamin C. Retails for $79 This can be used morning and night. I just used it in the evenings. Thoughts - I really liked this serum. Very lightweight, little bit more structure than water. Minimal scent. I experienced no irritation. After a months use I still have 3/4 a bottle. So this will last quite awhile, but not as long if using both day and night . Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence - An natural brightening essence powered by Glycolic Acid for brighter, more evened skin. Retails for $49 My thoughts - Again a hit. The light scent of grapes is heavenly. This is a water consistency as most essences are. My face felt instantly hydrated. I sometimes used this in the am for that extra boost of hydration . Vinoperfect Brightening Overnight Glycolic Cream A dark spot diminishing cream. Retails for $65 My thoughts - This wasn’t my favorite. I found it very hard to absorb into my skin. I’d have a white cast similar to sunscreen no matter how little I put on. I’d add it after the serum and follow up with a moisturizer or oil. I just didn’t care for the consistency but overall I liked it . Final thoughts - while I did find this to brighten and help (slightly) to fade some spots I can’t say I’d purchase again. One, the price range is just too high for my liking and two, I like the results I get from FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum better. Even if I stuck with just the serum and cream it would be $114 compared to Honeymoon Glow at $58 I was influenced by my girl Hope @skincareandgreentea and very glad I gave it a shot. No regrets! . Hope this Sunday finds you all healthy and full of cheer. Keep focus on the positives! Last night my family and I had a breakfast feast! I love every once in awhile to do breakfast for dinner. Everyone manned a station and we ate to our hearts content ❤️ #blessed

I purchased Farmacy Honeymoon Glow in May and finished it in December, using it three times per week, with occasional breaks prior to travel when I knew I’d have a lot of sun exposure. I purchased this product because I had heard so many good things, and I love how chemical exfoliators keep my oily, acne-prone skin clear. The brand claims that this overnight serum resurfaces, hydrates, and clarifies. With a 14% blend of AHA, BHA, and gentle flower acids, this serum is quite potent and does cause tingling. Having used The Ordinary glycolic toner pretty regularly prior to using this product, I did not have any problems incorporating it into my routine. It’s one of the few products that made me notice a difference in my skin immediately (well, the next morning!). I could not believe how glowy and refreshed my skin looked. Over the course of use, I noticed less breakouts than usual as well. At $58, this is a fairly expensive purchase, and right now I’m rating it 4 stars due to price, given the availability of similar, cheaper formulations on the market, like the Good Molecules Overnight Exfoliator. However, I’m currently testing the Good Molecules at the moment, and if it doesn’t quite give as good results, I will happily repurchase Honeymoon Glow. I am more comfortable paying a higher price when the product lasts as long as this does.
