So excited to have finally gotten my new skin care babies!!!! I’ve been really interested by low pH cleansers. Your face has a lower pH compared to most cleansers, so finding one that is slightly more acidic can be beneficial. I’ve also been looking for another mask to get rid of these pesky closed comedones and blackheads.
.
.
.
Of course I had to try the cult favorite and wildly HG cleanser by @cosrx. I’ve heard way too many good things about this cleanser to not buy it eventually.
.
.
.
@cerave is a brand I love dearly, so learning that they have a cleanser that was low pH was a no brainer for me. Got this especially for my little sister since it claims to be hydrating. .
.
.
This mask by @peterthomasrothofficial was recommended by my best friend @nguyendemily. She’s tried it and says it works really well. She was gonna let me have a sample after she gets back from her vacation, but I couldn’t wait 😂. It’s sulfur based, which is something I haven’t tried yet. I’m hoping for the best!
.
.
.
I’m gonna test these products in the next few weeks then make a full review for you guys as per usual 😌 Any of these your favorites? Have a wonderful weekend everyone 💙💚💛

Meet my struggle 🙄💀👽 ...& excuse my hiatus!
.
When I don’t want to do something, or as I open myself up further to #vulnerability, it’s hard for me to not fall into avoidance coping. That’s what I’ll call this past week. 🙈
.
I went a whole month sharing almost every other day to disappearing when I wanted this post in a specific spot in my feed. 🙄😂 I haven’t even taken photos as often this 1st week of August!! I don’t like the state of my skin so I don’t really like sharing about it. I fell into the same state when on #Accutane! Time to get past it. I’d rather share my struggle w/ sharing about #acne than to ignore it. Does anyone else relate??
.
As for the #skinupdate: You’re looking @ the left side of my jawline & it is by far the worst or most infected area of my face.
.
See summary of what I’ve been doing differently this month from my 1st post☝🏼
.
I was very consistent w/ treatment & documenting this July. My skin has been purging on & off all month—this trend has cont. into this 1st week of August. #ClosedComedones are developing into papules & pustules, blackheads are doing the same, & my acne is getting worse before it’s getting better. As expected. 💩
.
So many reasons I’m at this place w/ my skin. I stopped doing all of my normal exfoliation steps when testing Dennis Gross Ultra Gentle Peels; clearly a bad decision looking back. Allll of the blackheads came about in not using BHA consistently.
.
Weather change & skincare: It was hard for me to find a balance when the seasons were changing in May-June. It’s when I started having more obvious issues again.
.
I look at photos from May & see some of the spots were there & under the skin but not rising. I used Azelaic back then to keep things calm, while now I’m provoking my skin to make things change. IMO, I also didn’t switch to a lighter moisturizer soon enough when the seasons shifted.
.
I’m self-reflecting to help you all see where I’m coming from. It’s clear that there is a #hormonalacne connection for me & w/o consistent treatment, I have issues. Certain diet changes, I also have issues. At this point I don’t have much to say other than that, I can only move forward! It will get better. 🙏🏼

⚡️ {7/28/18} Sunday’s AM/PM Routine ⚡️
.
I’m only a day behind & it’s killin’ me 😩
.
I also haven’t woken up at 5am the past week & I’m tired from long days into the evening. Why is it so difficult to be a morning person?? 😭😅
.
As for skincare, I’m out of @curology a few days before my payment goes thru 😱 What will I do! Let’s see how I get on w/o it until my shipment comes.
.
I’ve found that I’m the opposite of most females in that my breakouts get worse in the weeks after my cycle ends... Been reading about what this might mean & the #hormonalacne connection.
.
#AMRoutine I decided to mask
Washed my face w/ the usual
💦 @firstaidbeauty Facial Cleanser
I did put a bit of 2% BHA before applying the charcoal mask & let soak for ~10min...should have waited longer 😂 *sigh*
✨ @pixibeauty Peel & Polish was 2nd but I should have done it 1st 🤦🏻‍♀️ *moving on*
💦 @paulaschoice Skin Recovery Cleanser sample
⚡️ FAB Facial Radiance Pads
💦 PC Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner
✨ @curology during the day since I didn’t go anywhere & missed applying might before 🙈
💦 @klairs.global Blue Calming Cream
.
#PMRoutine
🤲🏼 FAB Facial Cleanser
💦 Hylamide Pore Flush

{7/27/18} Saturday AM/PM Routines 😘
.
Had the biggest lip pimple everrrr on the top right of my lip. It was the type that needed to open. I created this by pushing a blackhead a few weeks ago—knew it was going to come.
.
Popped it first by making an opening, pushing out the white stuff, applied some BHA & noticed there was more inside. Pushed gently to have the infection reveal itself annnd a giant seed came from the inside. I wish I had a photo of it because it was gnarly. 😂😂😂 ahhh

Writing this after having the best little skincare pamper ✨ {evening of 7/27/18} AM/PM Routines feat.
.
#PMRoutine
😌 Tried the @firstaidbeauty Oat Mask - 10min. Sprayed some Hylamide Pore Flush on top when it started to get too dry.
Massaged the mask w/ the spritz for a minute & then rinsed. Skin definitely felt calmer & soothed! Simple; no dramatic results.
.
In the midst of *enjoying trying new things* I ran to the fridge for the @pixibeauty h20 Skin Drink 😂🙈
.
This was v nice esp. straight from the fridge. Nice cool feeling for a hot second. I put it all over my face w/o test patching 👀 (will do a test patch later to make sure I don’t exp any negative skin reactions!) It leaves a kind of oil-like residue, not sure what it is. It’s not annoying, but I noticed it. It feels like it sounds: hydrating—quite nice! I’m interested in comparing it to some other products.
💦 @muradskincare Water Gel Cream as last step

{7/26/18} AM/PM Routines
.
I kept putting off washing my face when I got home this day cuz I was trying to finish a work project & then it turned into me not washing my face until 10pm 😭😥👽
.
Ofc, this happened the day I did a new experiment. My skin was fine during the day but my jawline became angry by the end. ☹️
.
I had never tried using a BHA & VitC at the same time during the day. Always thought it might be too much for my sensitive skin. If you’re looking to, you’ll want to read a bit about pH in skincare.
.
You should always layer the product w/ the lowest pH first. What’s nice about @paulaschoice is that their products’ pH are easily Google-able. They even state it for certain products on their website.
.
My skin felt fine during the day & I was pleased or even shocked! By the very, very end, I had more spots rising. This was less of the experiment & more-so because of:
1. My annoying day 
2. I didn’t wash my face until right before I slept! That’s not me 🙅🏻‍♀️ that’s against my rulesss
.
UGH. Anyhow. Life goes on, my skin will heal. Before I try anything else I’ve gotta let my skin get back in balance again. I’m hoping for a quick turnaround.

#AMRoutine 🤲🏼 Showered & cleansed skin w/ @eminenceorganics Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant w/ #LacticAcid & NIOD Sanskrit Saponins #ClayCleanser
.
💦 Patted @thayersnatural Rose Petal Toner all over my face & décolletage. I used this while on Accu💊 but got sick of using it.
.
It's nice, non-irritating, & hydrating but man it lasts foreverrr. In the beginning I loved it, now I just want it to be gone 😩😅
.
💦 Spritzed Hylamide Pore Flush #Mist
Let all of that soak in before applying
🍊@paulaschoice C15 Super Booster - let sit for 10 min
💦 PC Resist Omega+ Complex #Serum - Really been loving this between these two vitC layers. It helps provide the extra moisture I need.
✨ @sundayriley CEO C+E #antioxidant Protect + Repair #Moisturizer
🌞 PC Resist Super-Light SPF30 - I realized recently that this expires in 8/2018 !!! It’s because this is the 1st bottle I ever bought.
.
I mostly used the Skin Balancing SPF this past winter since this Resist one is very mattifying—it can make my skin feel uncomfortable if not enough layers are underneath. It's great for summer tho. Now I'm taking it to work & applying before I drive home to make sure I use it before the end of next month.
.
(I should be doing this anyway or at least finding some powder SPF to apply before leaving...I dunno! It’s too much to think about 😳)
.
I'm gonna need a replacement soon enough 😜 what are your guys' fave #sunscreen | #SPF | #mineralsunscreen ?? I want to find a good drugstore or @sephora option so that if the world collapsed I would be able to run to a store nearby & not be stressin' out!! 🤯🤣 but we will see...

.
🤲🏼 @pixibeauty Double Cleanse - Step 1
💧 @firstaidbeauty Facial #Cleanser - Step 2
💦 @paulaschoice Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner - Shake 1st then put directly on face while patting in w/ one hand
🛸 @sundayriley UFO all over + down neck - Spread this around my face, massaged it in, but didn’t wait as long as I usually like to. Usually like to give it some time to soak in before going in w/ other products.
◽️ @curology 4% #AzelaicAcid + 1% #Clindamycin + 4% #Niacinamide
💭 TO 10% Azelaic Acid - typically I apply this last because it’s in a silicone base. I wasn’t thinking since I was so tired. 😅
💦 FAB Ultra Repair Cream - Massaged in & spread around so that everything was mixed.

{7 | 23 | 18} Last night’s PM Routine ... simplicity ✨

It’s amazing what happens when you re-figure out what your skin wants/needs.

Other than changing my entire approach for #curology, bringing the Facial Radiance Pads back into regular use has changed my skin in the best way. So clarifying yet so gentle.

{7 | 23 | 18} Last night’s PM Routine ... simplicity ✨ It’s amazing what happens when you re-figure out what your skin wants/needs. Other than changing my entire approach for #curology , bringing the Facial Radiance Pads back into regular use has changed my skin in the best way. So clarifying yet so gentle. . 🤲🏼 @firstaidbeauty Facial Cleanser 💦 FAB Facial Radiance Pads ✨ @paulaschoice 2% BHA 👁 @drunkelephant C-Tango Eye Cream ◽️ @curology 4% #AzelaicAcid  + 1% #Clindamycin  + 4% #Niacinamide  💦 FAB Ultra Repair Cream . . . . . . #pmroutine  #skinpositivity  #clarifying  #clarifyingtoner  #clarifyingtreatment  #closedcomedones  #cloggedpores  #FacialRadiancePads  #skincareroutine  #hyperpigmentation  #scarring  #acne  #acnetreatment  #acnenightcream  #nightcream  #skincarecombo  #acneskincare  #skincare  #drunkinlove  #paulaschoice  #brightening  #targetedskincare  #iloveskincare  #skincareobsession  #acnecommunity  #skincarecommunity 
Kept things reeeal simple Sunday since I didn’t wash my face until uhh 3pm 😅😂
.
My skin wasn’t feeling annoyed & I was being lazy so it’s all good 👌🏼
.
💧@firstaidbeauty Facial Cleanser - Cut this open too soon 😆 it was becoming difficult to squeeze out so I reused some @sephora sample pots I’d washed to store the rest. 💦 Hylamide Pore Flush Mist
✨ Few drops of hemp seed oil from @nutiva (you can eat it, too!)
💦 TO Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA - Not a huge fan of this. When I tried to use it this past Spring, even with my SPF moisturizer on top, my skin felt tight. It’s not enough for my skin type. That’s why I add a few drops of oil if I do use it.
.
PM Routine
🤲🏼 NIOD Sanskrit Saponins - Shouldn’t have used this after using it the day before, but I’m fine 💁🏻‍♀️
💦 @paulaschoice Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner
💦 @firstaidbeauty Ultra Repair Cream
◽️ @curology 4% #AzelaicAcid + 1% #Clindamycin + 4% #Niacinamide
@caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet Cream - Tested this & am shocked I put this on my face! I’ve been using it as a hand cream since I just haven’t liked how strong the fragrance is? I like the smell, but I dunno, it was off-putting to put on my face. No bad reaction & it soaked into my skin nicely.

Saturday's AM/PM Routines 🤓
.
🚿 While showering I used the @eminenceorganics Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant w/ #LacticAcid - I've had this for too long but the thought of throwing it away is just... 😭 It's packed w/ amazing ingredients I don't think it’s "bad" now (no signs) & it's always been stored in a dry, cool place, but it's probably not as effective as if it were purchased new. ☹️ It's a very gentle physical exfoliant w/ lactic that is meant to help brighten skin, gently cleanse pores, & buff away any dry or dead skin that may be lingering. You can def go overboard when massaging these types of products so I'm v gentle & don't massage for too long. When I 1st purchased this...was def scrubbing too hard. To think of how I used to treat my skin is simply TRAGIC.
🏔 Then used NIOD Sanskrit Saponins - A clay cleanser that can also act as a mask. *As mentioned a million times now, I no longer wish to support this company so I will share my thoughts but will not be repurchasing.*
I was surprised when I first used this cleanser this spring. After using once, I did notice my pores appearing tighter and even cleaner after massaging it into my skin for ~5min. Like what!? I haven't noticed as much of a dramatic difference since using it on & off but let's say I will be seeking an alternative clay cleanser that reaps similar results after I finish this. (Let's be real, I have some time 😂)

Friday night’s PM Routine 🧐 trying to keep up!!
.
I did wake up w/ calmer spots ☺️
.
The spot on my cheek that rose & retreated is still kinda there—not so much in size but it’s lingering. That’s what led me to use the 2% BHA instead of UFO.
.
I saw that there was a dot in the center, as if the infection is still deep within the pore. I pushed it a little to test for a response & the dot didn’t budge. This BHA will go a bit deeper & I hope it will help it either come to the surface again or dissolve. 🤞🏼

Last night’s PM routine & the other two nights 🌚✨
.
🤲🏼 @paulaschoice Gentle Cleansing Cloth - Tried this for the 1st time. I’m not a makeup wipe person (I once was) & sadly, I wasn’t impressed. It was barely moist enough to take off my tinted sunscreen & it didn’t do anything for my mascara. 🤷🏻‍♀️
💋 To get my makeup off fully, went back to @pixibeauty Double Cleanse (Step 1)

Here’s today’s AM & the past two days’ AM routines ✨
.
I’ve been focusing on #hydration all week. Lots of mists & HA. The dry cold air from excessive A/C & the heat is making my skin feel more tight most days, despite layering tons. No thank you, summer!! #GoAway 🙄
.
7/17 was 1st use of my new pot of CEO #moisturizer & it was just...a beautiful experience. 😂 Let my C15 serum soak in for a good 20min & then massaged in CEO. Fabulous. The look, the feeling, the smell—nothing like it. UGH. 😍🤤😌
.
On 7/18 I did a full face of the sample of @itcosmetics CC Cream - really love this foundation. I’m going to have to purchase eventually. 😬

Today’s AM Routine 🧐 My thoughts below product list!
.
🤲🏼 @freshbeauty Soy Cleanser
💧 @firstaidbeauty Facial Radiance Pads - prob should have resisted this considering I used 5% AHA. What’s done is done!
💦 Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
✨ @paulaschoice 5% AHA
💦 PC Resist Omega Complex+
⚡️@amorepacific_us Essential #CremeFluid + a few drops of squalane
☀️ PC Skin Balancing SPF 30
😘 Spot concealed w/ sample of @itcosmetics CC Cream
.
In doing research I’ve found that AHAs help most w/ clearing up CCs that are related to #hormonalacne (a combo of AHAs & BHAs - I digress). I’m a bit afraid of the road ahead if I’m going to be honest *but* I’ve gotta keep moving forward, so I’m trying this new experiment to see if my skin can handle it. 🤞🏼
.
After doing this today my active acne was much more, well, active again when I washed my face this PM. Now I have to retreat from AHAs until they calm down again—my acne becomes more irritated w/ too much acid use.
.
I neglected using @paulaschoice 5% AHA after I over-exfoliated w/ it earlier this year & triggered my “#accutanerelapse.” That’s that. I’m over that specific fear now & am going to use the 5% once or twice weekly w/ #curology in PM daily. Let’s see. 👀
.
I’d like to replace this AHA w/ small bottles of #BiologiqueRecherche P50 1970 (new formula) & PIGM 400. I’m committed to #1empty1newbie for these types of exfoliating products tho! Waiting it out. Here’s to my #wishlist.
.
It’s worth noting that my cycle will be this week—my #acne is more inflamed (in general) during this time. I also let myself indulge a few days ago so I’ve already had more junk than normal. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Same exact PM Routine for 7/12 & 7/13 👍🏼 Today is going to be the same, minus the BHA step 😌
.
🤲🏼 On 7/12, after toning & spritzing I used @sundayriley’s UFO oil on my nose, around my jawline, & on 1 spot that was developing on my forehead. Let that sit for ~15 min before applying ... on 7/13 I applied less & waited less time.
◽️ @curology 4% #AzelaicAcid + 1% #Clindamycin + 4% #Niacinamide - The more I use this, the more my active acne + cysts + nodules calm down. There’s one specifically on the edge of the right side of my jaw & it keeps getting huge & then decreasing in size.
👁 @drunkelephant C-Tango #EyeCream
☝🏼 Spread 10% Azelaic Acid in areas w/ active spots (of all kinds)
💦 @firstaidbeauty Ultra Repair #Cream
.
Of course, layering these treatments & applying moisturizer last is spreading the products all over my face. To help keep them in targeted areas I will put dollops of cream on different areas of my face & massage it into those areas only, then move to next section. Ya feel?

Look what arrived this Wednesday !!! 👻
.
I’m so excited. 😂 I’ve connected with so many new ppl since posting that I will be trying @curology.
.
@momskindiary even has almost the exact hormonal acne pattern as me! I can’t wait to try some of what she’s tried to help her skin status. 🤩😍 She’s been using the same #curology formula for the past year, but her dose of #AzelaicAcid was increased to 8% recently—after one year of use.
.
Test patch done this Thurs. night, Friday results shown after doing my AM routine. ➡️ There are even some CCs present in this patch if you look closely. No side effects! 👏🏼
.
I didn’t expect any but I had to be sure. As explained, I know my skin does well w/ all of these ingredients so I didn’t have much to worry about. Always, always #testpatch! I would go on to test multiple times in same place but don’t see myself doing so w/ this... it’s all low strength IMO.
.
Updates to come 😉

Aside from struggling with acne/ hormonal acne/ dehydrated skin, I also mentioned before that I also have closed comedones under my jawline/upper neck. I never showed pictures since none of the acids I used worked until now... ALL PICTURES HAVE NO FILTER/NO MAKE UP!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oct 13, 2016, first time using a chemical exfoliant. I used Cosrx AHA Whitehead Power Liquid. In fact I was in love with it because it healed most of my acne/hormonal acne. I was using Cosrx AHA for 10 months. It got rid most of my CCs but there were still some left and then around July 2017, it multiplied again.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Aug 5, 2017, I introduced Stratia Soft Touch AHA. This works fine, didn’t break me out but oh so gentle on my skin that I think it did not do much for my CCs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jan 24, 2018, introduced Krave Beauty Kale-Lalu-yAHA. This one tingled/stung my face on the first few uses but the stinging disappeared with continued use. Its also gentle on my skin. It lessened my CCs but never diminished the stubborn ones.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
April 24, 2018, introduced BR Lotion P50 1970. This exfoliant really impressed me! It did not sting at all on my first use. I first used it every other two nights and now every other night. This product is the answer to my jawline woes! Only 9 weeks of using this and all my closed comedones are already gone even the stubborn ones!

Aight, what’s up w/ @curology? What have I been prescribed? What do they offer? 🤨
.
If you wanna know, I’m here to spill the tea! 🍵 *Edit: Requested—referral code added to bio!* My case was processed within a day & I should be receiving my formula in the mail tomorrow! I was shocked & thought that was pretty cool. 😎
.
💊 My formula is the 4% Azelaic Acid + 1% Clindamycin + 4% Niacinamide formula.
.
💠 I know my skin loves #AzelaicAcid.
💠 I like the idea of #Clindamycin & this is not available OTC (I was prescribed a cream Clindamycin Phosphate while on 💊#Accutane, specifically for tough cysts/nodules ONLY. Helped them dissolve. It was great!).
💠 #Niacinamide & my skin are friends, but def not bffs. I dilute the current serum that I have w/ a #hyaluronicacid + B5 formula. I’m curious...
.
I’m hopeful that this formula will help! I’m also happy that my provider took into consideration what I wrote. I shared what I’ve been using & what I know my skin responds well to. I submitted the same photos from this last Saturday that I shared in my previous post.
.
I’ve pictured what she recommended. SPF only isn’t going to cut it though, my dear. 🙈 She asked that I limit or completely stop using acid exfoliants—understandable. I will be limiting use. .
💁🏻‍♀️ She confirmed my thoughts about hormonal acne & agreed it was in a “hormonal pattern.” Suggested birth control, which I don’t want. Suggested I start drinking #spearmint tea, something many of us have discovered! I’m excited to cut back on caffeine & opt for more tea.
.
In case you don’t know, the providers are working w/ limited ingredients & this is how they differ from going to a #dermatologist. It isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But they can’t offer you a prescription for anything other than a cream. Swipe to last photo ➡️ to see the 6 ingredients they work w/ to create a custom formula for you.
.
IMO, they make it sound like they have a lot more to work w/ than they do. It’s as custom as the 6 ingredients can be custom... 😝
.
I didn’t realize they only had 6 until after I hit submit. Considering it was an on the whim decision... not their fault. 😂 They’re not hiding anything! I really appreciate that. A bit more ⬇️

TLDR; I did something I never saw myself doing... I’m trying Curology! 👀 My primary concern is closed comedones in my jawline/upper neck. Generally speaking, I have control of the rest of my face. I haven’t wanted to deal w/ finding a new dermatologist since moving, & the low cost of the free trial drew me in. (I paid $4.95. Hell yeah!⚡️)
.
This past Saturday I was having a bad skin day. My acne was inflamed & I was being more critical of myself & my skin than I normally am. ⬆️ Pictured. My skin is often much calmer. This is a bad day for me. Hence, random “screw it, I’m going to try this” attitude. 🙈 I’ve added a photo from the week prior for comparison (red shirt).
.
These closed comedones (CCs) really get me down some days. When I really stare & nit-pick at how clear my skin is, I look at them. I feel like they keep getting worse & worse?? What is the cause? *lots more questions* Gah! 🤨 Hint: Hormones.
.
It doesn’t help that I’ve also gotten a few more small cysts in my jawline/upper neck area. 😪 At this point, I can handle a few whiteheads. I never pick them, I know how to treat them, & they go away quickly. But CCs, ugh, they’re just there waiting to rise some day. When I was on #Accutane, they all disappeared—a miracle. .
To my memory & looking at my old videos, I didn’t really have a lot of CCs in the areas they’re in now, before now! So again, wth?
.
As much as I feel like I’ve caused some of my current condition, I’ve had to accept that this acne is likely due to some kind of hormone imbalance. (I’ve kind of always suspected that hormones are the *genetic* connection to all of my acne problems.)
.
CCs can be caused by product use *but* I have so many on my jawline at this point, it doesn’t make sense. Acne is freq. related to hormones due to how androgen receptors react w/ other hormone receptors & enzymes in the skin. This is why drugs like #Spironolactone (originally a blood pressure medication) help certain people. And this example is just one piece of this puzzle in the acne ↔️ hormone connection!
.
I’ll make a separate post on what formula I’ll be receiving. Would you guys be interested in knowing more about the process? LMK! 💕

🔴PIMLE MASK🔴
Something is making me breakout in places where I usually don't ie. forehead/side of my eyes/side of my mouth and of course the usual spot the jaw line. But they are not the cystic kind of acne, these are more like closed comedones pimples. I think the culprit may be the BECCA Ultimate Coverage 24-Hour foundation. I tried a sample of it and liked it so I bought the full size. And since then, I've had these blemishes popping up daily especially when I wear the foundation. I battle hard when I get these pesky little monsters 👾 and I mean business!! Here's a concoction I made last night to combat the redness, inflammation, and that purulence lurking on top of it. I had about 7-8 of these papules in places I mentioned above.
🔴
The cocktail 🍹
📍 A generous amount of S.O.S by @thegranolagoat - it is a powder that consists of 12.5% sulfur, matcha, turmeric, and lavender.
📍 2 droppers of @skinceuticals Blemish and Age Defense which consists of 2% Dioic Acid to control sebum, 1.5% Salicylic Acid, 0.3% LHA, 3.5% Glycolic Acid and 0.5% citric acid.
📍 2 dropper fulls of The Ordinary Niacinamide
📍 3-4 drops of @sundayriley UFO Oil
🍹 Mixed it into a paste and applied to affected areas. I left it on for a good 2hrs before rinsing it off followed by my night time routine which consisted of 🔴Murad's 0.5% salicylic acid, Niacinamide, Resveratrol and Ferulic Acid, and Azaleic Acid from The Ordinary.
🌟
I woke up this morning with the blemishes flat and redness gone. Obviously the swelling is also gone. There's only one left that is still tender to the touch the one by my jaw line, but its size has significantly diminished.
📍Unfortunately, I can't keep using this combo as I know it will dry me out, thereby causing more damage to my skin barrier.
🌟
But for now, this homemade paste calmed the irritation and blemishes, and zapped away whatever incoming zit was about to rise to the surface.
❤️
Sulfur and salicylic acid does wonders for my skin in tackling closed comedones.

Weapons of pore destruction. 
Before you think I’ve lost my tiny mind, I don’t use all of these every day. 
Just one of these products can make a huge difference to the appearance of pores. 
Start with cleansing- a double cleanse with an emulsifying oil cleanser and a gentle sulphate free acidic gel can make a huge difference to the appearance of the skin. I like @simpleskin  oil cleanser and @cosrx Low pH Good Morning cleanser. 
Follow with a clay mask like Myrrh Clay by @deciem, which is less drying than most. 
Tretinoin is the ultimate complexion smoother, I feel that it’s really made a difference to my bumps and pores. Mine comes via online dermatologist @dermatica.skin.
Acid wise Salicylic is the obvious choice as its oil soluble, it will dissolve pore contents. I also like Lactic Acid for its gentle smoothing effects, my skin (and pores) love it. 
Niacinamide is an obvious pore reducing choice. I love it for all its skin helping properties, it’s an all round good egg. 
Some products just reduce the appearance of pores, which is a perfectly valid way of dealing with them because these products work instantly. @hylamide HA Blur works a treat as well as their Pore Control. Also forgot to include Mastic Must which really does delete pores instantly.

June is National Acne Awareness month! 80% of people have had acne breakouts at some point in their life. Let’s make one thing C L E A R, acne is a problem that affects millions. Acne is a medical condition that CAN be addressed with the right treatments, products, and nutrition. Hormones, diet, vitamin deficiency, genetics, stress and comedogenic (clogging) products all contribute to the causes of acne. For the month of June, I will be taking part of the #acneawarenesschallenge through my @skinbylauralynn insta stories! Day 1- Introduce yourself & your acne journey. My name is Laura and if you know me-you know how hard it is for me to post picture #2 😱🙈!!! I’ve suffered from mild to moderate acne since 2007. Being in the skin industry, I know NOW my teenage breakouts stemmed mainly from poor nutrition, (hello midnight Cheez-its and pretzels!) picking, and harsh overstripping ingredients in attempt to “quick fix” pimples making them 10x worse. Off to the dermatologist I went, prescribed to numerous topical and oral medications= Temporary acne relief but the moment stopped the breakouts returned. Birth control and Retinol entered and to my surprise helped. My nutrition improved, avoided trigger food- dairy, increased exercise, my skin was clearing up and consistent aside from monthly hormonal breakouts. Picture #2 unfiltered was in 2016. I woke up every day to a new painful pustule only to discover the protein powder I was consuming daily was full of my acne trigger- dairy!!! Picture #3 unfiltered 2018 in Esthetics School 🧖🏼‍♀️💆🏼‍♀️ followed skin knowledge and treatment facials 🙌🏼 Although I still have breakouts and shamefully pick 😱😱😱! Me, myself and my skin have found balance. Don’t let acne bring you down! What’s your acne journey? #skinbylauralynn #acneawarenessmonth #acneawarenesschallenge #acne #breakouts #pimples #pastules #papules #closedcomedones #opencomedones #facial #skin #june #cidesco #massagetherapist #nailtech #esthetician #esthetics #skincare #nutrition #lovetheskinyourin

By far my favorite cleanser is by @skinscriptrx Has a light citrus orange 🍊 scent! | I found it most helpful with clogged / congested skin with no white head for extraction! Their formula is definitely potent and is only needed 2-3 times a week! I like to alternate with my creamer cleanser with Glycolic by @glytoneusa. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #SkinScript #SkinScriptRX #SkinScriptRXProfessional #SkinCare #SkincareVox #Vox #Hyperpigmentation #Glycolic #Glytone #AntiAge #SkinHealth #GlycolicAcid #GlycolicWash #AcidWash #FacialWash #GlycolicAcidFacialWash #GlycolicPeel #Pores #ClosedComedones #ClosedComedo #BlackHead #SebaceousFilaments

My #skincareroutine from 7/12/17-6/02/18 (give or take some products since I like to experiment 😝 #skincareaddict). The last 2 months involved me trying different #koreanskincare products without properly patch testing 😅 I’ve learnt the ingredient butylene glycol causes closed comedones & pimples for me 😱 The #closedcomedones were so stubborn and wouldn’t go away. Only when I cut out products containing butylene glycol high on the ingredients list, then the CCs went away. I’m now left with a lot of hyperpigmentation spots 😰 See my blog if you’re interested in this routine’s change log. 💩 #skincareblog #skincareblogger #skincareregime

It’s a classic for a reason. Other BHAs just don’t exfoliate as gently or effectively... @paulaschoice (also, it looks like my wall might have some closed comedones)

Just a little routine tonight. I’ve got a few closed comodones that are driving me bonkers, so I’m going with a routine I know my skin loves.
1️⃣ Cleanse @jordansamuelskin massaged in dry skin, removed with a damp warm washcloth (no makeup, no second cleanse)
2️⃣ Mist @maylindstromskin 
3️⃣ Hydrating serum @jordansamuelskin used to plump, as a sort of buffer
4️⃣ Prescription tretinoin, a pea sized portion to cover the face & neck 
5️⃣ Oil serum @vintnersdaughter 4 drops applied with the push-press method

Here they are now. I still have a lot of marks from picking (☄️) and I still have a few bumps all over, but they have decreased a bit. I do not have a solid routine built yet, but today is the start of something new. I have taken everything out of that routine and started fresh. As I start helloclearskin, I will build a better routine, drink more water, and eat more good food. Eventually, I hope this will all work out! Stay tuned. - K

Hi, everybody! How are you guys doing today? I’ve been good & I was inspired to create this insta to start recording my journey in getting the skin of my dreams. I am a 21 year old college student and I have been dealing with acne for almost 10 years. As you would imagine, I am tired of not seeing any improvement or changes in my skin. With helloclearskin, I will be posting my AM/PM routine and I will also show you how my skin reacts to different products. I hope we all learn something from this experiment and I wish we all end up with clear skin! Please feel free to comment or suggest anything below!

Adult Acne sucks big TIME!
.
This is not being vane at all! I've had clear skin until 2013 when white bumps/clogged pores/closed comedones decided to show up on my forehead. It was sooo intense that I would go out the house wearing a cap to cover it. Both my cheeks were clear that time but after a few months, white bumps (again) decided to show up. And ever since, it's been a never-ending battle against acne.

I'm currently using a toner. It's very effective in getting rid of my closed comedones. It also minimized my pore size. But the bad thing is, it's giving me major purge. But the spots were the new pimples are, were the same spot where I used to have old comedones that have been lurking since forever.
.
Is this a good thing? Should I stick to it.? The rep from the said company told me it is normal and would normally last 4-6weeks 😱. But my skin's looking so gross now 😭

.
my type of acne is different from the usual. I have closed comedones all over my cheeks and jaw/chin that have been thriving for 5 years now.
.
They usually are not painful and would sometimes go away on their own but most of the time, they thrive underneath my skin. It wouldn't come to a head but when it does it's super inflammed. Big zits with postules would resurface on my cheeks.
.
For the five years I've had this type of acne, there would be times that my skin would clear up but still the white bumps would be so visible under artificial light/sunlight. I have basically used any product that claimes to get rid of it. I have been using a new product that really got rid of the white bumps (mostly) but to my surprise, it's giving me a horrible purging stage. I will create a separate post about the said product soon.

I know I've shared this before, but I honestly can't #recommend this product enough, expecially if your mostly a #allnatural #barefaced woman like me, who might have a #makeupaddiction but rarely ever wears #makeup 😂😂 I go to work every single day with a bare face. I have nothing to hide, and I'm comfortable enough, and #confident in my own #skin that I don't mind my #flaws showing on my face. I have #texture issues, #closedcomedones #oilyskin #largepores  yet I'm not afraid to walk out the door without having anything on to #hide my #imperfections 💖 Never have been the one to have a #fullface of makeup on, or I don't walk out the door. That's not me, and won't ever be me, but love to wear makeup too. That being said, when I DO feel like I need some #coverage from me picking at my skin, popping pimples, causing #redness and #scarring this @itcosmetics #illuminatingcccream is my #holygrail When my face is a disaster, I take my #itcosmetics illuminating CC cream with my #itbrushes by @ultabeauty #complexionbrush and apply in light layers, until I get the coverage I'm looking for. Sometimes this is all I will put on my face, just to cover up my scars and bruises from messing with my face. I am in the shade medium, and it's the perfect match for my oilve, medium, skin with warm undertones. I do most of my videos on #youtube bare faced. I have no shame. When I run out of this, I will buy another bottle. This is the illuminating one, which gives your skin a dewy, luminous, appearance. The regular it cosmetics CC cream is just as good, just doesn't have the glowy look. Did I forget to mention this has #spf50 and also multiple anti aging benefits too? This is overall an extraordinary product, and I will never stop using this. If you have problem skin like me, or even if you don't, I highly recommend this. It's light to medium coverage, and also has skincare ingredients in it too. I'm obsessed with this. I use this more than anything in my insane makeup collection. #thecherokeegypsy and PS. I've got my grandmother hooked on it too lol. I give her tips and tricks all the time lol me and her will sit for two hours discussing makeup. She's obsessed with @itcosmetics lol.

So I caved in and used glycolic last night. It was supposed to be a Retinol night (alternate w curology) but I really want to rid of my bumpy skin. Slightly less bumpy today 💃. Will try to incorporate it until it goes away. I think a lot of them were from the 5 diff contour/bronzer I used on Halloween 😑. 1st Cleanse: #YouSkincare Barrier Repair Cleansing Balm - smells so good

2nd Cleanse: #CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser- getting used to the consistency of this & enjoying it

Treatment: #CaneandAustin 10% Glycolic Retexture Pads- felt uncomfortable for a few minutes but was soothed after I applied oil

Mist: #Yeouth Balancing Toner *.
Serum: Yeouth #HyaluronicPlus* .

Eyes: #RootScience Bright serum with #Nuxe Anti fatigue eye cream .

Oil: #DrunkElephant Marula Oil .

Sleeping Mask: #Cosrx Overnight Rice Mask- incorporated this because it rates good on #cosdna and never breaks me out, however, it's not enough for my dry skin. Will need to add another hydrating layer some where.
.

Hope every one has a good day 😊

Barebones #amroutine...
Guys! My explosive acne from 3 weeks ago is still here and I’m starting to lose patience. I know it’s from intense stress and anxiety in personal life and I have cut out almost all products until it gets better (IF it gets better), but even that doesn’t seem to be working!
.
Certain insurance situations don’t lend themselves well to visiting a dermatologist so I started by emailing @toska_europeanspa and going to try the parts of their suggested  @biologique_recherche regimen that I can afford and see what happens... if that doesn’t work I clearly need to buck up and just see a professional. In the meantime, here’s what I’m putting on my face in the mornings:
- @andalounaturals Apricot Cleansing Milk (to fortify and calm)
- @deciem CAIS (to help heal acne wounds)
- @paulaschoice 2% BHA (to exfoliate and get the funk out of my pores, hopefully prevent more breakout... though I do wonder if this might be exacerbating everything 🤔)
- @olehenriksen Sheer Transformation Moisturizer (this is the lightest cream I have...very sheer and absorbs quick... just to protect after exfoliating)
.
Blah! 🙄🙄🙄🙄

Blackheads removals,  extractions, open comedones.

So sadly My skin didn't mesh well with the Dr.Jart Ceramidin Liquid 😭It did moisturize my face like nothing else, but something in the ingredients (Still working on narrowing it down) caused me to get a ton of closed comedones (CC), which is very out of character for my skin. I didn't get these CCs right away either, and my skin usually reacts right away. Since that had been the only new product I added into my routine at the time, I knew this was the culprit ☹️I'm on my way to return it 🤞🏻I will miss this product (I really loved it, well before all the CCs) and the time we spent together lol. Anyone else have any products they loved that turned on?

A few updates here; skin, review  and routine. 🐻SKIN: I'm breaking out with little whiteheads in random places PLUS my closed comedones came back. AND one big pimple on the bridge of my nose where my glasses sit. I'm not allowed to use acids for 2 weeks while on curology and I'm 1.5 weeks in. I'm being verrry patient. Whether it's purging from Curology or lack of glycolic acid who knows. I'm trying not to stress. 🌈REVIEW: Sunday Riley CEO Brightening Serum: A 15% Vitamin C- tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate. This was my first time using any type of vitamin c. 
Results: it worked for me as a newbie but it wasn't drastic results. Results were there just subtle. But I noticed so that's good. However, this serum, 1 ounce, costs $85 and I used it 75 times. For maximum results, use twice a day. So it would last me a little over 5 weeks. That,my friends, is an expensive month.  So, I'm trying out the Drunk Elephant to compare, since that's $80 & meant to last 4 months. I bought this product with my own money. ⭐Routine: Retinol night and keeping everything else simple/the  same.

I have 2 small pimples on my forehead. I'm pretty sure it's from sleeping in my makeup twice over the weekend 🙃. My skin wasn't super dry or "cracking" by end of day! I've been using face oil in the morning and it's helped. Tonight's sweet dream team routine:

I decided to take the plunge and get a @curology prescription! I started taking Tretinoin 0.025% Jan 2017 for acne and anti-aging and it's been a rough road. My skin cannot handle tret. I can only use it twice a week or my face peels and gets super dry if I do more. Also, I read that Azelaic Acid does just as good of a job fixing acne but with less side effects. For now, I am still going to use Tretinoin 0.025% twice a week until I finish it. Then on alternate nights use curology. I am dreading the purging phase but oh well. Will let you know how it goes!

📍Acne Series : ตอนที่ 4 #รอบรู้เรื่องสิวหัวขาว📍

สิวหัวขาวหรือสิวหัวปิด (whitehead หรือ closed comedones) เป็นสิวอุดตันที่มองเห็นได้ แต่ตัวสิวยังอยู่ใต้ผิวหนัง ซึ่งยังไม่สัมผัสกับสภาพแวดล้อมภายนอก จึงเรียกว่าสิวหัวปิด และสิ่งอุดตันก็ยังเป็นสีขาว จึงเรียกว่าสิวหัวขาว โดยจะพบว่ามากกว่าร้อยละ 75 ของสิวชนิดนี้จะพัฒนาเป็นสิวอักเสบ โดยอาจเกิดจากการเพิ่มจำนวนของเชื้อแบคทีเรียที่ชื่อว่า Propionebacterium acnes (P. acnes) 🔎สาเหตุของสิวหัวขาว🔎
✔การบีบสิว ✔ความเครียด
✔การสครับ (scrub) ผิวหน้ามากเกินไป
✔เครื่องสำอางบางชนิดอาจอุดตันรูขุมขน

Totally loving my holo bag from  sephora play. Anyways here's my post for the last day of #cultbeautyskincarechallenge Day 31- August Favorites. I chose one product in particular, to give a thorough review. My fave product for last month has to be Exuviance Daily Antioxidant CA10 Peel pads. It is a 10% AHA (Citric acid) that has 36 pads for $65. I cut them in half because I have a small face (I'm all cheeks). I started to use these in the beginning of August because I had opened them last September so they were due to expire. I'm so glad I did because the closed comedones I had been struggling with for several months reduced by 80%! I'm so happy I found something that worked, as I just kept hoping my retinol would kick in and get rid of them. I started to use them once a week, then twice, then every other day. I'm at everyday now but I only have 1 pad left 😢. I was hoping to have completely clear skin before finishing and moving onto a new product but oh well. I want to repurchase but I still have my good genes to use up so hopefully that will work for me too. Beautypedia gave these a bad review but I totally disagree, these are awesome! Even better, they soften my fine lines and make my makeup go okn smoother. Such a lovely product. I paid for these myself, it was my very first AHA product I bought actually.

Actives I'm loving right now: Timeless 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum, The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2%, The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5%, Alpha Skin Care 10% AHA Essential Renewal Gel 10% (Glycolic Acid)
.
A caveat before you try any of these products: these are all potent ingredients that either exfoliate skin deeply or increase skin cell turnover, so please do a patch test first! Then, introduce the product very slowly, starting with a once-a-week application. Vitamin A derivatives such as retinoids, and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) will cause photosensitivity, so don't forget to use sunscreen or else, you suffer. I never use any two of these products together in one routine. Lastly, try not to introduce more than one product into your routine in one go! I usually wait a couple of weeks myself.

#MorningSkincareRoutine featuring my bunny that had it's eyes ripped out by my dog. 🙄
Haven't posted a morning routine in a while. I'm always in a rush. Either way, it rarely changes.

Cleanse: #DrunkElephant Beste Jelly Cleanser - been using this in the AM for the past month and I love it, just dont like the packaging, but rumor is they're going to change that. 
Treatment: #Exuviance Daily Antioxidant CA Peel - just started using these again and I remember why, instantly plump fine lines and I think it's helping my closed comedones! Further testing needed although I only have a few left . 
Nourish: one pump #Vichy Mineral 89 w 2 drops #PaulasChoice 10% Niacinamide 
Moisturize + SPF: #JoshRosebrook Nutrient Day Cream SPF 30- also been using this for the past month and I'm so surprised I can skip moisturizer with this! I do want to add another hydrating layer soon, something light. 
Eyes: #theSREM Iceland Eye Stick - just bought this at CVS and it expires in November 😐. Also, the Soothing part might actually feel uneasy. Testing for another day or 2 ,then will decide if i want to return.

Have a happy solar eclipse Monday! This signifies a new chapter of your life,throw out the old ,negatives thoughts/behaviors and start anew.

#Comedones that are 1 mm or larger are called #macrocomedones. They are #closedcomedones and are more frequent on the face than neck. #Solarcomedones (sometimes called #senilecomedones) are related to many years of exposure to the sun, usually on the cheeks, not to #acne-related #pathophysiology.

I am a licensed #esthetician and over the past 3 years my #acneprone #skin has gotten worse. I have had acne since I was 11 years old and I am about to be 30 come November 2017. This is quite a long time to be dealing with this annoying and aggressive skin condition.  I started going to this #skincare specialist dealing particularly with #acneic skin. I learned that #genetics is the cause of my acne. Both my parents had bad acne and so do I. Now granted my skin has been better at times than others but I have never had clear skin.  Genetically, acneic skin produces more oil and shred skin 5 times more than normal skin. From this you can see how acne can form. There has to be a skin regimen aggressive enough and tailored to your specific acne and skin type in order to clear your skin and maintain its clearance.

This is me. 
But not really. This is not my real face. My real face is currently (and will for a while to come, be) an assortment of black spots and acne, thanks to Pimples my companion since I was 9.

But really, more thanks to me and my finger and my horrible horrible picking habit. It's a big problem, I can't even lie. I'm not going to bore anyone with the details. I just want to say if anyone is in the same shoes as I am , I know what it feels like. 
I did not want to post this, God knows... But I felt pushed to. So for whatever it's worth, fellow acne brethren, just know you're beautiful. Gorgeous! Pimples, spots and all. 
To the people around me, please give me a kick when you see me put my hands near my face. I will very likely frown, shrug you off or even get upset, but believe me, deep down I'll be grateful. Thanks guys.
