Products & Tips for Maskne 😷
Products & Tips for Maskne 😷
I have sensitive combination skin that is acne-prone so wearing a mask constantly at work is not helpful for my skin progress. I’ve been recommending a few products to friends and family and figured I’d share what has been working for me! Morning Mask Routine 😷 1. Matcha Hemp Cleanser by Krave 2. Flawless Serum by SkinKissed (Vitamin C and HA) 3. Great Barrier Relief by Krave (just in mask area) 4. Daily Greens by Farmacy 5. The Beet Shield by Krave (everywhere!) Night Mask Routine 🌝 1. Very Cherry Clean Balm by Farmacy 2. Matcha Hemp Cleanser by Krave 3. Great Barrier Relief by Krave 4. Retinal Moisturizer by Allies of Skin 5. Facial Oil (sometimes & it varies) Heavy Hitters ⚾️ 1. Great Barrier Relief Serum by Krave This serum is incredible. It mimics your natural skin barrier so it is perfect for a damaged moisture barrier as well as providing a barrier between your skin and your mask. The Niacinamide in this is also very useful for breakouts! 2. Allies of Skin Retinal /Moisturizer (Vitamin A) You do not need to buy a super expensive retinal product to have an effective retinal. This was a special purchase for myself and I love it but cheaper options exist! Retinal/ Retinol products can be tricky if it’s your first time but they are essentially acne treatment products because they increase your skin cell turnover. I find they increase healing time and prevent breakouts in the first place and I LOVE them for breakouts and breaking a cycle of acne. Retinol Tips: ✨Use at night as main active ingredient (general rule of thumb is to avoid mixing with Vitamin C) ✨Start with small amounts 1-2 times a week and work your way to more consistent use ✨Your skin may “purge” for a few weeks while starting out. That’s normal and it will go away if it is from purging. This can mean breakouts. I also had some peeling when I first started. ✨Pair with a heavier moisturizer to combat any dryness 3. Very Cherry Clean by Farmacy It doesn’t have to be this exact cleansing balm but always double cleanse your skin after lots of mask wearing! This can be any oil-based cleanser. I personally love taking my time, throwing on some music and gently rubbing this on my face for like 10-15 minutes. Why? Because not only do I properly pull off any oil, dirt, makeup and SPF, but it also removes blackheads. So gross but honestly you can see it working if you do it long enough! Blackheads are oil so it makes sense that an oil would be great to clean them out. General Maskne Tips: 💦 Wash your masks between each use 💦 Double cleanse your face as soon as you get home 💦Using a clay mask or sulfur mask once or twice a week will help remove impurities from the skin 💦 Let your skin breathe when you can- I avoid foundation/ CC cream whenever possible and I think it helps me personally. 💦 If you’re really struggling, I’d recommend using the Healing Ointment as a day moisturizer. Talk about a barrier between your skin and your mask! What are your maskne tips??

Allies of Skin - 1A™ Retinal & Peptides Overnight Mask* | 50 mL - $109⁣ ⁣ This overnight mask is pH balanced and packed with time-release Retinaldehyde, 13.5% Peptide Complex, 9 Antioxidants, & 5 Brighteners that work to hydrate and brighten stressed skin while repairing any signs of aging skin.⁣ ⁣ Other benefits include combating blemishes, smoothing wrinkles, reversing sun damage, boosting your skin’s immunity, accelerating skin cell renewal, boosting the skin’s natural reparative process, and strengthening its defenses against environmental aggressors.⁣ ⁣ What's more amazing is that this is clinically proven to repair acne lesions by 67.2% in 28 days.⁣ ⁣ My experience: So far, I've fallen in love with using this as my last step in my PM routine. It's silky smooth and extremely hydrating. I haven't used it long enough to write a review or to see significant results, but I have high hopes for this current 5-star product. The packaging is perfect with the pump which dispenses just the right about of product. I haven't noticed any stinging, burning, dryness, redness, or itching due to the retinal, which is a plus. This might be different for someone with sensitive skin. I'm able to use this every night but using it less often may be best if you're someone who reacts to products with retinal or retinol.⁣ ⁣ DO NOT USE IF PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING.⁣ ⁣ Allies of Skin - 1A Retinal & Peptides Overnight Mask ⁣ _______⁣ *gifted

Is Luxury Retinal Worth It? 🤔
Is Luxury Retinal Worth It? 🤔
I have sensitive combination skin and I’m also acne-prone and deal with hormonal acne. This means that retinol is very important to my routine to increase cell turnover and help with breakouts. ✨This prodict is the 1A Retinal & Peptides Overnight Mask by Allies of Skin. It consists of a peptide complex, 9 antioxidants, 5 brighteners and retinaldehyde. I purchased this from the AoS website after seeing it all over the skincare Instagram community. ✨This product is luxury and super expensive at $109 for 1.7 oz. However, with all the rave reviews of this brand I figured I’d start with this item which I will shell out for so here we are. ✨The product says to use their probiotic mist before use for best results so I sometimes use one from a different brand that I love and put it on as my main product for the night besides cleansing beforehand then adding eye cream and lip balm. ✨It smells amazing. It’s refreshing in a light citrus kind of way. The texture itself is silky and light and the product is a light yellow color. 🌻I like this a lot but I’m not sure I’d buy it again because of the price point. I feel like it works in terms of helping with breakouts and I’m definitely curious to try the new formula without essential oils but this is highly expensive and I’ll probably try the Crystal Retinal by MediK8 next which has been on my list. If a product is this expensive, it has to be a miracle worker for me to buy it again at this rate. I will however be trying their Vitamin C and moisturizer at some point. I think if a product is amazing and the most effective, it is worth the splurge but I’m not sure this is the holy grail retinal for me.

I have sensitive combination skin and I’m also acne-prone and deal with hormonal acne. This means that retinol is very important to my routine to increase cell turnover and help with breakouts. ✨This little beauty is the 1A Retinal & Peptides Overnight Mask by Allies of Skin. It consists of a peptide complex, 9 antioxidants, 5 brighteners and of course retinaldehyde. ✨This product is highly expensive at $109 for 1.7 oz but I was able to snag a 20% off code for this purchase. Yes, this was a purchase. I’m not willing to spend a ton on most skincare anymore because I’ve found some favorites that are super affordable- check out Krave Beauty. However, with all the rave reviews of this brand I figured I’d start with the one skincare item I will shell out for so here we are. ✨The product says to use their probiotic most before use for best results so I used one from a different brand that I love and put it on as my main product for the night besides eye cream and lip balm. ✨It smells amazing- I can’t quite put my finger on it though. It’s refreshing in a light citrus kind of way. The texture itself is silky and light and the product is a light yellow color. The next morning, my active breakouts had calmed down a lot and even seem to have healed a bit which is impressive because I was expecting my current ones to be destructive for at least another week or two. 🌻I have a great feeling about this product but not a great feeling about my bank account💁🏼‍♀️ Allies of Skin - 1A Retinal & Peptides Overnight Mask

🙋🏻‍♀️ Hi, my name is Cathy and I'm an Allies of Skin addict. It's been about a month and my skin loves these products and I'm here to share my first impressions with you all. · 𝑻𝒓𝒊𝒑𝒍𝒆 𝑯𝒚𝒂𝒍𝒖𝒓𝒐𝒏𝒊𝒄 𝑨𝒏𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒙𝒊𝒅𝒂𝒏𝒕 𝑯𝒚𝒅𝒓𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝑺𝒆𝒓𝒖𝒎 Allies of Skin - Triple Hyaluronic Antioxidant Hydration Serum 𝑻𝒓𝒊𝒑𝒍𝒆 𝑯𝒚𝒂𝒍𝒖𝒓𝒐𝒏𝒊𝒄 𝑨𝒏𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒙𝒊𝒅𝒂𝒏𝒕 𝑯𝒚𝒅𝒓𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝑺𝒆𝒓𝒖𝒎 is a hydration + repair serum, supercharged with 3 forms of HA, antioxidants, niacinamide, and strawberry fruit extracts. I've been using this baby 2x a day and I find that it keeps my skin super hydrated throughout the day while also making my skin look nice and plump. · 𝑴𝒂𝒏𝒅𝒆𝒍𝒊𝒄 𝑷𝒊𝒈𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝑪𝒐𝒓𝒓𝒆𝒄𝒕𝒐𝒓 𝑵𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 𝑺𝒆𝒓𝒖𝒎 Allies of Skin - Mandelic Pigmentation Corrector Night Serum 𝑴𝒂𝒏𝒅𝒆𝒍𝒊𝒄 𝑷𝒊𝒈𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝑪𝒐𝒓𝒓𝒆𝒄𝒕𝒐𝒓 𝑵𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 𝑺𝒆𝒓𝒖𝒎 has a blend of mandelic, lactic, & salicylic acid along with brighteners, antioxidants, and peptides to treat pigmentation, blackheads, large pores, breakouts, and uneven texture. I use this during the evenings and this product has made my skin look so smooth, bright, and clear of acne. · 𝑨 𝑹𝒆𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒂𝒍 & 𝑷𝒆𝒑𝒕𝒊𝒅𝒆𝒔 𝑶𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒏𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 𝑴𝒂𝒔𝒌 Allies of Skin - 1A Retinal & Peptides Overnight Mask 𝑨 𝑹𝒆𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒂𝒍 & 𝑷𝒆𝒑𝒕𝒊𝒅𝒆𝒔 𝑶𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒏𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 𝑴𝒂𝒔𝒌 has a blend of retinals, peptides, antioxidants, and brighteners to combat blemishes, smooth wrinkles, & reverse sun damage. And oh my god, was I impressed! I used to have these really, really stubborn sun spots & tiny bumps around my cheeks but after using this bb, I saw that they slowly starting to disappear and it's giving my skin a brand, new life. I did realize that it dries out my T-zone if used alone but, when mixed with the other products, it doesn't bother my skin at all. I absolutely 𝐋𝐎𝐕𝐄 all 3 products. My skin is completely addicted to them and it's evidently clear how happy my skin becomes when I apply these babies on my face. Also, have you heard the Public Service Announcement? AOS is coming out with a new brand @psaskin and I'm so thrilled to see what goodies they will be launching! Anyway! If you made it all the way down to here, happy Sunday & happy International Women's Day! Xoxo 💕
