Barefaced and happy

For the past two weeks I have been breakout free! It is a miracle and on top of that for the past two weeks I have gone to work sans foundation. My skin looks good enough for me to face the world wearing just my skin treatments and sunscreen.

My large pores are beginning to shrink and my skin is starting to take on a very normal appearance. It is no longer abnormally thick. It is amazing how things have turned around in just 9 weeks.

My skin regimen has been developed based on my skin's needs. It might seem too much for some but for me it works perfectly.


AM Routine

Wash: Neutrogena Oil Free Acne wash with Clarisonic Mia
Treatments: Glytone Exfoliating Lotion 3, Paula's Choice BHA 2%, Essential Wholesale Niacinamide 5% Serum
Neutrogena Healthy Defense Moisturiser and Sunscreen 50 SPF

PM Routine

Wash: Neutrogena Oil Free Acne wash with Clarisonic Mia
Treatments: Retin A 0.1%, Essential Wholesale Niacinamide 5% Serum

This regimen will work for only the most resistant skin types. I have used Retin A for years with amazing results. However, in the past few years, Retin A stopped being as effective as it once was. I therefore use exfoliating products in the morning which have helped my skin shed the way it is supposed to.
