I started developing acne around age 10, which was when I first came to America. Since then, I’ve had a long struggle with acne and over the years I’ve gained knowledge on how to handle my skin type.
THE FIRST STEP to dealing with your skin is understanding what skin type you have-Normal, Dry, Oily, Combination or sensitive.Also, acknowledging that acne can develop due to multiple causes including your diet, improper skincare, genetics etc. This post is mainly addressing skincare, so if you feel like you want to have a deeper understanding of your skin my advice would be to see a dermatologist.
My Skin Type|Combination skin: Extreme oily is my T-Zone and normal to dry around the perimeters of my face
I have sensitive skin so there are many products, such as a the Neutrogena skin wipes that burn my skin which causes irritation. Therefore, when I’m removing makeup I use the Simple Wipes and the Simple Daily cleansers. Pros- No artificial Perfumes or Dyes |No Parabens |No harsh Chemicals to upset your skin. Cons- You needs to use multiple wipes since the formula isn’t strong.
I’ve recently been using this right after cleansing my face and it is amazing. Some people may think that since you have oily skin that it is not necessary to moisturize but that is going about things the wrong way. When you cleanse you’re taking away all the moisture and necessary oils out of your skin. So, your skin begin over producing oil and looks like an oil slick by the end of the day. It is important then to find a moisturizer for your skin type. Most moisturizers have the catered skin type written on them, but even then the face lotion may not be for you. I’ve have tried a few, such as Clinique that didn’t moisturize my face enough and Olay that was too heavy to the point on me feeling like I had moisturizer lingering on my skin. The Neutrogena Hydro Boost hydrates my skin and leaves my skin feeling fresh with no residue. This product does not have SPF in it so you would need to apply the SPF separately or buy a foundation that has it in it. This product is definitely worth the purchase or try for any skin type.
I cleanse my face 2 to 3 times a week. It helps getting any dead skin off my face and unmentionables out of my pores. I use the clean and clear exfoliating cleanser. This leaves a minty feel to the face which helps your face feel refreshed. The only con is the smell. It does not bother me , however if you are sensitive towards products that have somewhat of a chemical smell this product isn’t for you. It comes out of the container as a white, thick, exfoliating cream. In the directions it tells you to use it daily but it is not safe for you skin to use this everyday. If I do have a breakout, I usually place a small amount on to help treat it.
