For those of y'all wondering what skincare products I use, here's the bulk of them! Having a good at-home routine--cleansing, toning, moisturizing, and protecting your skin with an SPF twice a day--implementing products with beneficial ingredients and sticking to them is key to fixing any problems you might have.
Research the products you want to use, how to properly use them, and their ingredients before purchasing them, and know what different ingredients do for specific skin types/conditions. For example, if you struggle with acne, opt for a product with salicylic acid or even sulfur instead of benzoyl peroxide or alcohol and make sure you're using a good moisturizer, too; moisture is your friend, even if you're oily!
Use your more heavy duty products like serums, more acidic cleansers or toners, and super hydrating moisturizers at night. Let your skin breathe, never go to bed without taking your makeup off, exfoliate three or four times a week, and wear a facemask once or twice weekly. Don't overuse spot treatments, don't be afraid of the burning, tingling sensation of acidic products, but don't overdo it with them either. Read labels, if something is irritating your skin or feels like it's too much, cut back usage to every other day until your skin can adjust.
Most importantly, don't give up and don't be afraid to speak with a professional! Acne isn't forever, it CAN be treated and it will get better! ------------------------
