Affordable solution for ACNE SCARS
Affordable solution for ACNE SCARS
First post, hi everyone! I absolutely love using this Rose Hip Seed Oil from The Ordinary as a last step in my nightly skincare routine. The product is formulated with 100% cold pressed, organic, pure rose hip seed oil. It claims to reduce signs of photo-aging as well as other skin conditions. The oil has a natural (not exactly pleasant) scent due to its high content of omega fatty acids, but I’ve noticed the scent dissipates fairly quickly. Since using this product I’ve noticed a pretty big difference in the appearance of my acne scars and the slightly blotchy red patches I have on my cheeks from past years of acne. It’s a bit of a heavy oil, so I only use a few drops, work it between my fingers to warm it up so it thins out first, and then pat it onto my face. It feels very nourishing and soaks into my skin nicely overnight. I would highly recommend giving this a try if you have any stubborn acne scars or redness! It’s only $9.80 for 1oz and will last you a really long time, and I can definitely say it produces noticeable results. The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil

Get rid of acne overnight!!! New favs in 2020
Get rid of acne overnight!!! New favs in 2020
New Acne-fighting favs, Life changing product!! Love love love these!!! The acne dots and dark spot brightening dots together, it’s a skin correcting power combo! If I could give these 6 stars I would. I have been using these as my secret weapon when I get a big pimple because it completely gets rid of the bacteria and helps the skin heal faster. Put these on at night after washing your face thoroughly and the next morning you will see a significant difference in your ache. These aren’t cheap I’ve tried other drugstore brands of the dots, but none of them work as well as these. My skin is sensitive and I don’t have any negative reactions to the dots. I 100% recommend these!

Hormonal Acne Journey
Hormonal Acne Journey
Do you have stubborn hormonal acne? Well... I might have discovered the {holy grail} skin care! In March of 2020 I started to develop hormonal acne. In the picture above I have been strictly using a retnoid, "Differin", for NINE weeks. It has helped, but not much. I was also put on the medication "Spironolactone". No help. Also used "Paula's Choice" acne treatments before that. Chemical Peels. "The Ordinary" brand. Nothing has helped me, and yes I used these things for several weeks with no success. BUT THEN I was given some hope. My mother has a friend in her thirties that has struggled with severe hormonal acne her whole life. Very painful cystic acne. Bad scarring. She has traveled to numerous dermatologists. Tried every medicine and treatment there is. Spent THOUSANDS of dollars and got absolutely no where... until a nurse in her dermatology office snuck her some info. She told her about "Biologique Recherche". She has been using it for several months now and it has smoothed out her skin and she literally looks FLAWLESS and no longer even wears foundation. No more deep scars. No more breakouts. Just glowing, healthy skin. Her daughter was having the same issues as her and started using "Biologique Recherche" and had the same beautiful results. She gave me product recommendations and I got on YouTube and watched several videos and continued to be absolutely WOW'd by the results people were having and caved in and purchased some items. They are on the pricey side, but very concentrated. If it transforms my skin and gives me back my confidence it will be 1000000% worth it. https://shop.karinanyc.com/ 👈 this is where I ordered my products. Very quick shipping and wonderful explanations on all of the products. I will list my starting products below. If you want to follow me on my skincare journey I will be doing weekly updates!

Your Acne no matter what type of, doesn't define you. But think it as an accent in your beauty. It makes you beautiful! 🥰 Also, I know the struggle when it comes to acne and it's reoccurrence and the constant fight you put up with it. I've been there and I can never say I'm done with it. I had teenage acne, now at my 25 I have adult hormonal acne. Let's not forget my PCOS as a cherry on top.

Here’s how to take care of oily acne-prone skin☺
Here’s how to take care of oily acne-prone skin☺
Most of us acne patients suffer from oily skin. Excess sebum produced by our skin may clog pores which eventually leads to acne. In this post, I’d like to share my top tricks in controlling my oily acne-prone skin and hopefully be able to help even at least one of you 🙈☺️⁣ ⁣ 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐃𝐎𝐬: ⁣ ⁣ 1. 𝐃𝐎 𝐰𝐚𝐬𝐡 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐚𝐭 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝐭𝐰𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐚 𝐝𝐚𝐲. This has always worked for me. Sometime before, I tried not washing my face in the AM and it just made me so much oilier during the day resulting in more breakouts. Importantly, remember to wash your face every after workout too. Sweat combined with sebum is a perfect recipe for acne and skin irritation.⁣ ⁣ 𝟐. 𝐃𝐎 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐚 𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐥𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐰𝐚𝐬𝐡. Although salicylic acid cleanser helped tremendously in my teenage years, it isn’t necessarily beneficial for me now that my skin is more dehydrated and my skin barrier compromised. Salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide cleansers may still help on days when you’re feeling extra oily but resist using it daily. Use a gentle foaming face wash from Vanicream, Hada Labo, Cerave.⁣ ⁣ 𝟑. 𝐃𝐎 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐚 𝐦𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫 𝐝𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐲. You can have oily skin and dehydrated skin at the same time. Because your face is not hydrated enough, your glands may overcompensate for the lack of moisture by producing more oils. Do not ever skip this step! Your best option is to use an oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizer like Paula’s Choice Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer, Neutrogena oil-free and hydroboost gel cream, and if you have rosacea too, use procure rosacare gel. ⁣ ⁣ 𝟒. 𝐃𝐎 𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐥𝐲 𝐬𝐮𝐧 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧. SPF 30+ or up should always be worn especially for oily skin. Unprotected sun exposure can lead to more acne flare-ups. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide mineral sunscreens are your top options. Zinc doesn’t only protect skin but also helps calm irritated skin. My favorites are Elta MD physical and Purito Water, Clinique Broad Spectrum, .. If you like chemical sunscreen better, I highly recommend Eucerin and Sun BUm. ⁣ ⁣ 𝟓. 𝐃𝐎 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐭𝐨𝐩𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐭𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬. Keratolytic ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid that are available over-the-counter can be your best friends when used properly. It is important to note that when using an active, stick to a minimal skincare routine to reap the best results and use of one acne treatment at a time is a must, especially if you’re just starting out. If you have moderate to severe acne, I would go for Differin Adapalene gel or a retinoid such as Retin-A and Atralin. Retinoids may not only get rid of your acne but also heal and renew your skin in the deeper layers. ⁣ ⁣ 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐃𝐎𝐍’𝐓𝐬:⁣ ⁣ 𝟏. 𝐃𝐎𝐍'𝐓 𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫-𝐞𝐱𝐟𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐞. Over-exfoliating is probably something we’re all once obsessed with. Unfortunately, this habit can only lead us to a damaged skin barrier thus, compromising our skin’s own ability to heal itself. It’s best to limit the use of exfoliating ingredients twice a week when starting or one exfoliating acid/active at a time once a day after your skin has adjusted. ⁣ ⁣ 𝟐. 𝐃𝐎𝐍’𝐓 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐟𝐫𝐚𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞. I say it all the time, fragrance in skincare is BAD and does nothing good for you. The use of fragrance in cosmeceutical products is unregulated and companies are not required to disclose all components used in their products. The formulation may have a lot of unknown toxic chemicals that can be harmful to you. Without knowing and often initially not externally evident, fragrance can irritate your skin deep down, cause toxic hormonal effects, and may even cause cancer. Fragrance is a NO-NO for everyone and most especially for acne-prone people or those with other skin diseases. I have suffered the consequences of my bad choices myself. Do yourself a favor and ditch your fragrance-containing products too. ⁣ ⁣ 𝟑. 𝐃𝐎𝐍’𝐓 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐚𝐥𝐜𝐨𝐡𝐨𝐥-𝐛𝐚𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐬. Certain types of alcohol such as ethanol, isopropyl alcohol, and alcohol denat. are extremely drying and irritating especially to acne-prone skin. ⁣ ⁣ 𝟒. 𝐃𝐎𝐍’𝐓 𝐬𝐥𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐢𝐧 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐮𝐩. Always make sure you wash away all makeup and accumulated dirt on the face before you sleep.⁣ ⁣ 𝟓. 𝐃𝐎𝐍’𝐓 𝐬𝐥𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐨𝐧 𝐝𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐲 𝐩𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐨𝐰𝐜𝐚𝐬𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐡𝐞𝐞𝐭𝐬. Change your pillowcases frequently. I always make sure I sleep on new ones every week. ⁣ ⁣ 𝟔. 𝐃𝐎𝐍’𝐓 𝐤𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐞. Picking at your acne can only add dirt and germs to your skin and may cause more issues. Frequently wash your hands if you’re an absent-minded face rubber or cover the pimples with acne patches. ⁣ ⁣ 𝐌𝐲 𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐬𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐀𝐌 𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐞 (𝐨𝐢𝐥𝐲 𝐚𝐜𝐧𝐞-𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐞)⁣ 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐫 - VANICREAM - Gentle Facial Cleanser or CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skinor HADALABO - Deep Moisturizing Whip Foam 𝐇𝐲𝐝𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐫 - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream or The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫+ 𝐒𝐮𝐧𝐬𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐧 - sun bum - Face Lotion SPF 50 ⁣ 𝐏𝐌 𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐞: ⁣ 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐫⁣ 𝐇𝐲𝐝𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐫 - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream or Pyunkang Yul - Essence Toner 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫 - PROcure - Rosacare Gel 𝐓𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭: janssen - Retino-A 0.05% Tretinoin Cream

Hyram Approved✔️-The BEST Products for Oily Acne Skin💖
Almost all teens are puzzled by teen acne. It happens when an oily substance called sebum clogs pores.  There are a lot of factors that contribute to teen acne: Puberty, hormones, being athletic and outside, etc… Hyram has recommended some products to reduce the oiliness in the skin SERUM: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%($6): great ingredients of Niacinamide, super affordable, but always sold out>< BEAUTY BAY - Skinhit Soothing Serum ($6): better for oily skin than The Ordinary Niacinamide considering the weight, especially during the middle summer  íUNIK - Tea Tree Relief Serum($17): It is formulated with Centella Asiatica Extract, which helps to reduce the inflammation and sensitivity on your skin so much. Ps. It is so lightweight that good for both day and night use.  MOISTURIZER: FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream($34): super lightweight, has blurring effect to the skin and won’t let you look greasy in super humidity. It contains Coconut Fruit Juice and Coconut Extract with NO coconut oil, which won’t clog the pores! íUNIK - Centella Calming Gel Cream($7): lightweight with Niacinamide SOME BY MI - AHA. BHA. PHA 30 Days Miracle Cream($15):  very lightweight consistency but you could still get some exfoliation.  ROVECTIN - Lotus Water Cream($20): The first ingredient is Nelumbo Nucifera Extract, which is good for skin soothing and anti-aging. Besides, it is super lightweight and you can use it all summer.  SUNSCREEN: dear, klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++($25): super lightweight and could be quickly absorbed by skin, you will never feel greasy with it FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30($32): leave the skin a matte finish, feel like a very light tint moisturizer. Fragrance free and great for sensitive skin. PURITO - Comfy Water Sun Block ($19): mineral sunscreen, EXTREMELY lightweight, feels like water on the skin tarte - Guard Mineral Powder Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30($24): Please go with another sunscreen in order to realize its full protection on skin. Instead of adding layers of textured sunscreen, the powder, which comes with a brush, will absorb all the excess oil on your skin Here is the link to Hyram's original video on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l330tzUoR_I Have anyone tried these products before?
