Acne Skin Care

Clear Skin is Possible!!!

Most of you may not know I have had Acne for a while, and have gone through quite a bit with my skin. I have found that because I have tried so many things and some times try to do to much at one time that it makes my skin worse and not better. A lot of the time when you try to do too much and use too many products at once you end up interrupting the healing process. Recently I have taken a step back and have made my skin routine more simple and have actually went back to some products that I used years ago.

Let me share with you all what I have been using...

 

 

I've recently been using products from Neutrogena again!!! Neutrogena was my go to in High School and I had amazing skin back then... I don't know why I stopped using them. But, I thought why not use something again that I have used before. I love using the Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask, because for 1 it doesn't dry out my skin like some other cleansers that I have used before and 2 it is a two for one and it has Acne medication in it, so it's a Win Win for keeping it simple!! I had never used the Acne Stress Control Triple Action Toner before, but I wanted to try a different toner just to see if there was a difference from the other ones that I have been using, and honestly I have to say that I like it better than any other toner that I have previously used in the past year. The toner has Salicylic Acid in it, but my skin doesn't feel super dry after putting it on my skin. The toner actually gives me a Natural Glow after putting it on, which is amazing to me!! I use the Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask every Night and I use the toner both during the Day and at Night as well. Nip + Fab Skin is a newer product that I had never used before, but it has Glycolic Acid in it, so I was interested in seeing how it would work on my skin. The Glycolic Instant Fix Mask is a Clear Mask that kind of reminds me of a Serum. You leave it on for 10 mins and then wash it off after. I have used other products with Glycolic acid in it and they were super strong and left my skin feeling super dry after. With the Nip + Fab Skin Mask, that is not the case. It tingles a little bit, but it is not over drying!  Since I have oily skin I thought that drying out my skin just a little bit wasn't bad, but after doing some research I have learned that the oil is actually protecting my skin!! So, keeping the moisture is not a bad thing!! **Just a little tip to my other oily skin peeps!! Keep the oil!! Don't try to get rid of it!!** I use the Instant Fix Mask a few times a week at Night Before Bed. Not Pictured... My Go to Moisturizer during the day and night is Cetaphil!!! I love it because it is very simple!! It is light weight and a little bit goes a long way! I am not a Doctor!!! Everyone has different skin and different things work for different people!!

I have learned that Simple is better and Consistency is Key!!! Clear Skin is possible and I am working my way to get there! I also hope to help others along the way and let you all know that it is ok Not to have "perfect" skin!!! Don't beat your self up for Not being "perfect"... Honestly no one is, but you can be the best you and Shine because you are confident with what God has given you!! Don't worry about the little things!! Be you!! Be Confident!!! <3

See you in my next Post!! Bye for now :).
