The Ordinary’s Acids: Simple but Effective
The Ordinary’s Acids: Simple but Effective
Let’s talk about some of the Ordinary’s acids I’ve used! I love the Ordinary for their simple, affordable formulations that forgo the bad and hyped to instead include scientifically-backed ingredients. But sometimes simplicity can leave something to be desired. The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA Super simple, leaves a slight tacky feel but soaks in quickly otherwise. I noticed a subtle smoothing and softening of my skin over my use of this product. Best for those who don’t do well with glycolic acid. The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Solution This serum does it’s job of deep exfoliation but not very elegantly. While I did see improvement in pore size and acne frequency, the serum takes a while to soak in and left a tacky finish that caused my other products to pill. But it would be a good serum for those looking to try out BHA for acne and congested pores. The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% I noticed hyperpigmentation reduction with this cream, but I cannot stand the silicone texture. It has a strange grit to it, no matter how much I shake up the bottle. I also think my skin dislikes heavy silicones, as I experienced increased breakouts when using this, despite the wonderful brightening and calming properties it has. The matte finish is best for oily skin types and I’d recommend it for those who don’t mind silicone. The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque I love this mask! It combines salicylic acids vegetable charcoal, and Amazonian clay with squalane and glycerin to keep the mask from overly drying skin while still targeting congestion. Whenever my acne was terrible, this helped tremendously in shortening the lifespan of blemishes. I can’t recommend this enough for those that struggle with acne around hormonal flares since it’s a good spot-treatment. The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution This is my favourite The Ordinary acid for multi-day use in the week. It soaks in quickly, is slightly hydrating (moreso than the Lactic Acid + HA, oddly), doesn’t tingle or make my skin red, yet I can see over a couple weeks of use that my skin looks brighter and more even in texture. My only issue with this product that it does leave the skin slightly sticky- like your hands are after you touch something sweet. But there’s no pilling issue, so this is a great acid for those looking to lighten hyperpigmentation and smooth bumpy texture.

Enlarged Pores, Acne, Dull Skin?
Enlarged Pores, Acne, Dull Skin?
When it comes to congestion, acne, blackheads, and dullness, there are a lot of tips and a lot of products that promise smooth, clear skin. So let me simplify why I love these three ingredients for this myriad of issues. • Alpha Hydroxy Acid: Glycolic, lactic, citric, tartaric, mandelic, and malic acid melt the intercellular glue that holds dead skin cells together to your skin’s surface, helping along the skin’s natural shedding process to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. They’re considered hydrating, since they love water. AHAs offer mainly surface exfoliation, helping with uneven texture and dullness. • Beta Hydroxy Acid: Salicylic acid is the most common BHA, working similarly to AHAs in that they unglue dead skin cells to renew skin’s appearance. It is also oil-soluble, easily passing through sebum to allow BHAs to get into pores for deep exfoliation and normalization of the pore lining. This helps to reduce and prevent congestion, enlarged pores, and acne. • Niacinamide: A water-soluble precursor to two skin compounds that allow skin to repair damage, function normally, and make new skin cells. Topical application of niacinamide not only soothes current inflammation, but also increases the skin’s ability to neutralize free radicals, preventing future irritation and collagen breakdown, making it an awesome ingredient for aging and/or sensitive skin. Another anti-aging and sensitivity bonus: niacinamide helps increase ceramide production, strengthening the lipid barrier and allowing it to retain moisture more effectively. For acne prone folks, there have been two very promising and substantiating studies that show that 4% Niacinamide applied twice daily is as effective for moderate acne as 1% clindamycin. That’s impressive! As well, niacinamide application inhibits oil production, contributing to its skill for keeping pores minimized in appearance as well as reducing acne.

The most cost efficient chemical exfoliant✨
The most cost efficient chemical exfoliant✨
The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA The most effective and cost efficient chemical exfoliant ever produced! One of the Ordinary’s greatest product. Lactic acid is a great chemical exfoliant and is used to treat textured skin, dullness and uneven texture. I have been using this product for approximately 5 months and it has significantly overpowered any physical exfoliant out there. Perfect for all skin types from dry to normal. —————————————— How to use? Lactic acid is extremely acidic and can be harmful if used at the wrong time, with the wrong products or too often. Additionally, exfoliating too much can lead to dryness, peeling and/cracks. Thus, it is important to only use lactic acid 1-2 times per week. Lactic acid also cannot be used with certain types of vitamin C’s and niacinamides, as a result, do your research with each product before applying to the skin. Furthermore, lactic acid is the most effective during the night as skin cells replenish the most during the nighttime. Lastly, it is important to build a tolerance for lactic acid, start with a low percentage and build your tolerance. Skin routine including lactic acid can be as following: rinse face cleanse tone apply drops of lactic acid moisturize —————————————— Recommend 80% Throughout my experience, I would recommend lactic acid to anyone who is looking to exfoliate the skin. This product is also tremendous for dry to normal to oily skin. However, it may not be the best chemical exfoliant for sensitive skin types or people who suffer from eczema. Most importantly, in order to use this product, one must do extensive research to know how to use it and how to implement it in your skin regimen. If not used properly it can cause serious damage to the skin due to its extreme acidic concentration.

The Ordinary: worth the hype?
The Ordinary: worth the hype?
I finally gave some The Ordinary products a try after reading so much about them. Pros: - Inexpensive - Small list of ingredients - Easy to find, they’re at Ulta, Sephora and ship from their website. (I consider this a pro because a lot of K or J beauty products are pretty hard to get or have $20 shipping costs) Cons: - Constant layering is needed - Information as to what products work together is needed i.e The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution can’t be used with The Ordinary - Retinol 0.2% in Squalane and neither can be used with Vitamin C as they cancel each other out, all this is pretty confusing as every product does not work with another one so my night routine changes constantly and I need to keep track and confirm everything daily. I might get used to it soon though. Now on to individual product rating: The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution - works pretty well, I’ve used it once a week so far, upping that to two this week, it burns a bit but that’s cuz it’s a chemical peel and I had a dry patch, have been using only 2-3 drops as I’ve read that putting more is dangerous. The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Moroccan Argan Oil - I got this because I read that I should start using an oil as the last step of my routine to help with my oily skin (you read that right!). I did some research and was looking to get a non comedogenic oil so it won’t clog pores and Argan oil’s rating is 0 on a scale 0-5. I don’t mind it on my face but not super fond of the smell, though I know it’s natural. The Ordinary - Retinol 0.2% in Squalane - I got this because I wanted to introduce retinol to my face and read that I had to start introducing my skin to the lowest %. So far so good, no irritation, using it on my entire face, excluding eyes once a week, for my eye area I’m waiting on the Granactive Retinoid 2% I ordered as I read that’s the least irritating since the skin under your eyes is the most sensitive on your face. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - I love it! Use it twice a day and I love how my skin feels after. Some stubborn blackheads I’ve had for a while under my chin are much less visible and I believe it’s because of the niacinamide serum! The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA - got this for some hyperpigmentation, I only use it once a week, no crazy or visible effects yet but no irritation either so maybe it takes a while to work?

Tips for dry skin care
Tips for dry skin care
✨ Don’t use overly hot water when showering or cleansing your face. Stick to warm water as hot water is drying and can damage the outer layers of your skin causing irritation and inflammation. If your skin is red after showering then your water is too hot! ✨ Pat your skin dry after showering or cleansing. Don’t rub your towel back and forward over your skin as this can cause irritation due to friction and pulls more moisture away from the surface of your skin. ✨ Moisturise straight after showering or cleansing. This way you lock the moisture into the surface of your skin. ✨ Avoid products with harsh alcohols in the ingredients. When reading the ingredients ethanol, ethyl alcohol, denatured alcohol, alcohol denat, methanol, isopropyl alcohol, benzyl alcohol or SD alcohol are the ones to avoid. If one of these are listed in the first five ingredients they’re a major component of the product. These types of alcohol upset the natural balance of your skin by stripping it which it irritating and can cause breakouts. ✨ Be selective of products containing fragrances if you have sensitive skin. Synthetic fragrances (listed as fragrance, perfume or aroma in the ingredients) and even some natural ones such as citrus oils are very drying and can cause sensitivity or allergic reactions in your skin. Some great natural fragrances which don’t cause sensitivity and smell good are vanilla, coconut, cocoa butter and shea butter. ✨ Don’t skip exfoliation. While over exfoliation isn’t good for your skin you don’t want to avoid exfoliating either. Exfoliation is a must to remove dead skin so that your good products can actually penetrate into your skin. Consider gentle chemical exfoliators such as lactic acid or mandelic acid which are suitable for dry and sensitive skin and avoid physical exfoliators if they irritate your skin.
