Hello! I figured an easy first subject to cover would be my basic skincare routine. To start off, my skin is combination; i have very dry patches around my mouth and cheeks, and my forehead has constant break outs. It's pretty hard to balance acne and dryness, but I think I've finally found what works best to cleanse my skin!!
I do most of my cleansing at night in the shower. Two face washes I really like are from Aveeno. The Ultra Calming and Clear Complexion Foaming Cleansers are great for my dry, acne prone skin.
After cleansing my face in the shower, I use a scrub a few times a week. Two scrubs that I use are the Clean & Clear Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub and the St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub.
After I use my scrub, I apply an acne treatment to any visible blemishes. Sometimes, I'll also use a toner to help close my pores & give my skin a nice clean feeling. However, i usually skip toning my skin.
Something I do constantly is MOISTURIZE! It is so important for everyone's skin to have moisture to keep it healthy.
At night i use Pond's dry skin cream. It has a strong scent, like baby powder. But i think it is kind of nice. It is very moisturizing, almost makes my skin too oily, so i use it very sparingly. Some people find it unhygienic to use a jar moisturizer, but i think it's better to get how much you need. In the day, before i apply my my makeup, I use the Biore nourish moisture lotion with SPF 15. It works great to keep my dry skin hydrated & the SPF is a MUST. I really like the moisturizer & haven't found another that I like as much as this one. It has a nice fresh melon scent, but also smells slightly like sunscreen. Doesn't really bother me much. This was $8 at Walmart, and the Pond's was $4.
Well I hope that I gave someone some insight on what would work for dry, acne prone skin. I hope someone actually reads this! LOL
Have a lovely day!
