Hi guys... I have been MIA and I apologize.
What else has been MIA, you ask? Well, my acne. To be honest, I have never had perfectly clear skin. But as of lately, I have toned down my extremely long skincare routine to just two products, and I feel and look way better.
First, I remove my makeup as I normally would. I use the Josie Maran Cleansing Oil, which I have a review of in my previous posts. But I am not counting that as one of the products, because sometimes I am lazy and just use Dove soap in the shower, and my makeup comes off just the same.
I'll get to the good stuff:
My cleanser and moisturizer are everything right now.
I have been using the MAC Green Gel Cleanser and Cetaphil Cream.
That is it. Two products!
This cleanser is insane. It leaves my skin feeling SQUEAKY clean... I'm talking baby just born clean, and then I slap on my moisturizer and I am good to go.
I do have extremely dry skin, and this cleanser is drying because it is so hard on acne, but it doesn't affect me negatively whatsoever if I apply my moisturizer. If you have acne or oily skin that you want to dry up, go pick up this cleanser. You will love it!
The moisturizer is a pretty standard house hold item. I have been using this for years. It is affordable, you can pick it up from the drugstore, it lasts forever, and it WORKS. I do prefer the cream because it is much thicker, but if you have oily skin, just try out the plain old Cetaphil Lotion, which is a little lighter.
I hope this was helpful, and that in time you too will feel good in your bare skin!
