These products are items I use every day and have completely changed my skin. I suffer from moderate hormonal acne. That beauty leaves lots of obvious and embarrassing scaring along with pimples all over my face but mostly around my mouth/chin/cheeks. So while I want to cover up all of that, I need something that helps prevent acne as well.
I have finally found my holy grail products and want to share them with you :)
#1 Paulas Choice Earth Sourced Cleansing Gel
#2 Paulas Choice Hydralight Moisturizing Lotion
#3 Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser
This has been one of the most gentle yet effective ways to treat active acne breakouts. I use this when I'm having a rough skin day and it usually clears everything up in a day or two. Can be a little drying but nothing my moisturizer can't solve.
#4 St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub
I hesitated to put this one up here because there is lots of controversy over this being bad for your skin due to the jagged walnut shell pieces in it. I am open to a discussion and recommendations on another exfoliant. Exfoliation is so important and I feel this does a great job but I'm looking into other alternatives and want to talk about it with my Derm next time I see them.
Since using these products I am confident enough to (gasp) leave the house without makeup! This is something I would never have done even a month ago until I found these babies. The proof is in the pudding…or in this case my makeup free selfie ;)
