The answer to my acne, red marks, good for sensitive, normal-to-oily skin all under $30!!
Growing up and to this day whenever someone looks or (accidentally) touches my face, they always say the same thing, “Oh my gosh, your skin is so soft and
smooth!”. A few months ago, I got a pretty bad allergic reaction to makeup that made little pimples pop up everywhere. They eventually all popped (if you’re squeamish and not a popaholic like me, I sincerely apologize) but furious red marks were
left all over my cheeks. I had never suffered from any acne issues growing up. So, seeing this come all at once I was honestly having a meltdown. Testing products to clear my face over the months, I found the best suiting skincare routine that has really cleared
all the marks I had and the tiny pimples that appear from time to time. Many who have seen my skin transformation are constantly asking what products I use to keep my skin as clear as possible now and I’ve finally gotten the time and the platform to
put them all in one list and tell how I use so here we go!
Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser: It’s such a nice,
purifying, clean feel afterwards that clears your pores! I either use it in the morning or at night, every day. If your marks are red, I would not use it every day in my opinion because more dirt and grime would enter my pores and makes my face worse so I
would suggest using it 2-3x’s a week until it clears a bit.
You can find this at your local Target ($4-5) and Walmart ($8-9).
Stridex Cleansing Pads: I HIGHLY recommend these tiny pads! It works well for sensitive skin and non-irritating. It works by soothing on the skin because of the Aloe, cleans
your skin- you see the day’s dirt which is kind of disgustingly fascinating- sorry once again LOL. They really clear away those tiny pesky pimples that randomly appear by the salicylic acid found in the wipes! I would recommend you use it every day-
depending on what you do during the day and how dirty your face gets, 1-2x’s a day will be fine until further notice when you can start using it once!
can also find this at your local Walmart ($3-4).
Lush Cup O’
Coffee Face & Body Mask: I will say this is the most “expensive” product but it is oh so worth it! I bought this product 1½ years old and I’m only halfway through the tub, it really goes a long way. It’s a nice cleanser and
exfoliates the skin with the ground coffee found inside it. Let me tell you right now, you will N O T look wearing this mask, you will frighten your loved ones when they look at you, you will frighten yourself when you look in the mirror, so no you will not
take cute selfies because it looks like mud on your face but you do you, boo! The outcome is worth it though, my face has never been smoother and more glowy! Because this does work as an exfoliator I would use it only once every other week. Once your face
clears up, using it once a week like I do is just fine!
You can find this at your local Lush Cosmetics store ($10-20)- price depending on size.
Advanced Clinicals Jojoba Clear Skin Oil: The jackpot! The amazing jojoba oil!!! I cannot fully express my love for this oil but I will try! I found this at a
TJMaxx when I was just strolling through and I’m so glad I bought it! It’s a great moisturizer to apply during the day or before makeup, it calms the blemish-look and reduces the redness of the acne marks that are left. In a matter of two weeks
I noticed an incredible difference. What once was red polka dots all over my cheek became barely-there spots that blended with my freckles. The red marks are practically all gone but I still use it nightly. If you’re Hispanic, you know that when you’re
having trouble sleeping you put a little Vicks Vaporub under your eyes and you’re out in seconds- this oil has the same effect with the soothing smell that lulls you right to sleep! Now if you have normal to oily skin like me, you might be thinking this
oil will make matters worse but it balanced my oils and had no issues with it. I use this 2x’s a day with only three drops and that covers my face and neck area so it goes a long way.
You can find this at your local Walmart ($8-9) or drugstore ($8-12).
I would like to finish off by saying
that what works for me may not work for you, but if you’ve tried almost every product out and none have really helped, these products, which are mostly natural, may help and I’m just here to suggest great products for a great price! I hope these
you just as much as they’ve helped me over the 6 months-1 year that I’ve been using these products!
