Today I decided to change things up a little and talk about my skin care.
I’ve been struggling with acne the moment I turned 13 and to this day I didn’t get rid of it (I’m 22 now). My skin type is combination to oily with acne and it’s VERY sensitive. I have tried all the ointments my doctor recommended and TBH nothing really helped me. My skin got a little bit better when I started using contraception but it wasn’t as big of a change as I would like it to be… some days it can go crazy especially before period😕
This is what I do to keep my acne under control!
#1. Face wash:
La Roche-Posay Effaclar
I use my favorite face wash which is La Roche-Posay Effaclar- face cleanser for oily skin. I use it twice a day to keep my skin clean and fresh.
It helps to clean the skin from dirt and oil while respecting the skin’s pH balance at 5.5, it’s Soap-free, Paraben-free, Alcohol-free, Oil Free.
I’ve been using this for about 2 years and I can really see that It helps keep my shin clean! It can make the skin a little bit dry but when you put a moisturizer it feels great!
Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Purifying Gel
The next thing I use is NIVEA Purifying Gel, which I use twice a week. It helps to get rid of dead skin, and cleanses skin deeply to make it look healthy and beautiful.
I would say that it’s a stronger cleanser and that’s why I use it only twice a week. It makes my skin feel extra clean but using it more than twice a week makes my skin a little bit irritated.
#2. Makeup remover:
CREME CARE FACIAL CLEANSING & MAKEUP REMOVING WIPES
To remove my makeup I like to start with makeup removing wipes by NIVEA or Johnson’s Face Care Makeup Removing Wipes, both moisturizing and for the sensitive skin.
It removes makeup pretty well but I like to make sure it’s all gone by using Face wash makeup remover by L’Oreal.
#3. Face masks:
I like to try new masks but I don’t do it very often, mainly because of my sensitive skin. Some of them can make my skin very irritated and red.
Here are some masks I like to use that don’t make my skin irritated:
HIMALAYA- PURIFYING NEEM MASK
I like this mask because it works great on small pimples thanks to antibacterial ingredients. I put it on my pimple for the night and the next day when I take it off it’s a lot smaller!
Cettua Nose Strips
This is so far the best face stripes for blackheads I used! It removes a lot of dirt and leaves the pores look smaller! I use it once a week.
7th HEAVEN MASKS
I’m experimenting with 7th Heaven masks right now and some of them are really good! They make my skin super soft, but I haven’t tried all of them yet. The one in the picture is the one I’m going to try today so I will make an update to this post if it’s any good! 🙂
Hope you liked this little change! I decided that posting only makeup looks can be a little boring so I will change things up from time to time!
Hope you enjoyed this post!
