Naturally, as a facialist (and beauty junkie) I LOVE my skincare. I love the regime, the self care, the ingredients, the products, the results, I love it all. Though it’s very easy to get caught up in products and hype.
We live in a society that heavily markets quick fixes, product-based results and reliance on everything else but ourselves. Skincare is helpful for skin maintenance, repair and prevention but it cannot heal the internal issues that cause long-term skin problems such as cystic acne and psoriasis. Skin problems are merely a s y m p t o m of a deeper rooted issue and understanding this is the key to healthy skin.
With that said, I understand how uncomfortable it is to have painful breakouts. I so badly wanted to just put something on my skin to fix it. Through trial and error I did find some products that helped to mitigate my acne that I would recommend to others.
UFO Oil - I used this every night on top of a hydration serum or essence. Salicylic acid is oil soluble making this a great formula to penetrate the pores without drying the skin.
Overnight Clearing Gel - I used this under moisturizer during the day or at night under UFO. The herbs in it are naturally antibacterial and it’s very hydrating! It’s such a unique formula.
Life Plankton Essence - This product is very hydrating and healing. Great for balancing the skin, reducing irritation and healing open breakouts. It’s good on sunburns too.
Other products worth mentioning:
Glycolic Cleanser - I used this as a 10 min mask
purifying cleanser - I used this as a morning cleanser and mask
resurfacing mask - I used this at night on top of cream once a month for 5-7 days
rejuvenating serum - This helped my skin a lot to heal itself and recover, used daily under cream.
Vanishing cream and Herbalism scrub - Both naturally antibacterial, nutritive products that help to balance the skin and reduce irritation.
Using all of these is not necessary. Ask for samples and see what regime works best for you. 🌿
