I started by cleansing my face twice a day with a gentle, non-comedogenic cleanser. I then applied a toner containing salicylic acid to help exfoliate and unclog pores. I followed up with a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer. At night, I applied a retinoid cream, which is known to help with acne and wrinkles, as well as a spot treatment containing benzoyl peroxide on any active breakouts. I also made sure to drink plenty of water, eat a healthy diet, and get enough sleep, as these are all important factors in maintaining clear skin. Within a few days, I noticed a significant improvement in the clarity of my skin, and my stubborn acne was cleared. I continue to stick to this routine and it keeps my skin clear, healthy, and glowing.

AM: Neogen Real Ferment Micro Essence, Herbivore Prism, Valjean Labs Depuff, Tony Moly The Black Tea

PM: Cosrx Triple C Lightning Liquid, Fourth Ray Beauty Remedy, MyChelle Remarkable Retinal, Sunday Riley UFO Oil

AM & PM: Thayers Skin Irritation Relief Pads 2X a week: Peter Thomas Roth Lactic Pore Treatment

Reviews Neogen Real Ferment Microessence – odorless liquid very thin, I splash it on my face because it doesn’t have an applicator. Not sure if it does much, won’t be buying another bottle

Herbivore Prism– this is an AHA that smells amazing and is almost gel-like in consistency, pretty pricey but my skin looks smoother after using it, may buy it again

Valjean Labs Depuff– almost a cooling sensation, very moisturizing, nonsticky, would buy it again

Tony Moly The Black Tea– has a nice smell, is very slippery on your face, moisturizing, would buy it again

Cosrx Triple C– very few ingredients which I love 70% is a berry extract that I believe gives it a weird smell, has lightened my dark spots, would buy it again

Fourth Ray Beauty Remedy– 10% niacinamide has helped my acne, very affordable, and odorless, would buy it again

MyChelle Remarkable Retinal– thick, bright yellow, has the easiest-to-absorb retinol type, makes my skin feel moisturized, helps with wrinkles, would buy again

Sunday: Riley UFO Oil– has helped my acne the most, very strong herbal smell that is kind of masculine which I don’t like, dry oil absorbs fast, would buy it again

Thayers Pads– very strong alcohol content great for killing acne not so much for use near eyes, has helped kill bacteria and thus improved acne, may buy again

Peter Thomas Roth Lactic Pore Treatment– very expensive like $65, gel consistency, no odor, haven’t noticed much of a difference in my skin so would not buy again

Skin concerns: acne, staying moisturized, fine lines, under-eye bags
