I don’t want to wear makeup everyday because it’s too much and the BB CREAM I have is the maybelline dream BB pure with the blue cap and I feel like that’s too much too.... any suggestions? Since I do want to cover up my imperfections a bit without having to wear something too heavy :(
Shadow-like contour powders for dark skin? Not just a pure bronzer. Even something in between would be nice. Ty 🖤
Sooo I wish I took more pics!! But I took the hot pink shade from the Blood Sugar Palette and toned it down to be more wearable with the pure white shade! I used Kylie’s Bronze palette for a very light taupe color for the crease. Wanted this to be wearable but still interesting 💖😇
Please for the love of everything pure and great before you use The Ordinary products research what it goes well with and what you should use it for! I would start with their website then other dermatologist pages and then influencers last!
EX : you can’t use niacinamide 10% with vitamin C serum because it dulls the effect of vitamin C and can cause irritation.
You should be wearing a minimum SPF 30 during the day with any acid, serum, and any treatment you do or you make your skin 10xs worse..
Please be sure to research you own products and skincare routines (everyone should have a routine).
#LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel
I don’t believe in expensive Face wash so this works perfectly fine and even better. I used to use expensive face wash but not anymore.
$36 vs $15 come on 🤭
#REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Ultra Glow Brightening Duo
I’m still experimenting with toner but with this I didn’t notice my face gotten a lot better. I have hormonal acne and help on scarring, Clog pores, fine line, dullness and uneven skin tone.
#purito - Snail Repair Advanced Serum
I wanted to try this out and fell in love with it.
Snail mucus filtrate helps skin cell renewal and moisturization and Centella extract that soothes skin problems and blemishes for rapid and powerful skin improvement.
I use this at night and wake up with Very hydrating face.
#PURITO - Deep Sea Pure Water Cream
Great as a night cream
I have combination and i was looking for a moisturizing that wouldn't clog my pores but can keep my oily skin moisterized as well. Im okay with the scents and this one is a winner! After cleaning and toning at night i like to apply a generous layer over my skin. It keeps my skin moist and supple. It makes my skin look plump, young, and moisterized in the morning.
#PURITO - Centella Green Level Safe
God I just started using sunscreen bc I started seeing wrinkles on my forehead 😳.
Tbh I did tried but I hate the drugstore brand that are sold in America because it’s really thick and have a white cast and not very moisturizing.
I love this sunscreen so much because It doesn't leave a white cast or clog my pores. Easy to apply, not heavy on the skin, no white cast, no irritation, not oily, really great.
Okay, just going to put this out there for anyone struggling with their skin and acne. After doing loads of research trying to find ways to help my acne, I’ve found something that has really helped me so I figured I’d share.
There are so many ingredients in just about every skincare and makeup product out there, whether it be drugstore or high end, that are actually pretty bad for acne. Ingredients like silicones, alcohols (like cetearyl, hexadecyl, stearyl, etc.), oils (like coconut, almond, avocado, soybean, cotton seed, etc.), bismuth oxichloride, ethylhexyl palmitate, and so many more can be very irritating to your skin and can cause acne and/or clogged pores. You can look for a list of acne irritating ingredients online. I mainly refer to the list on “caryskincare.com” and try to avoid as many ingredients on that list as possible. The main thing you want to keep in mind is if those ingredients are higher up on the ingredient list, the more of it is in the product. If they are lower on the list it’s probably not bound to irritate your skin as much. I focus on avoiding these ingredients in my skincare the most.
As for makeup, let me tell you, that is almost harder to find products. 😂 The only makeup I’ve really switched to so far is the Alima Pure Satin Matte Foundation which I actually really love.
Between all of this, my skin has improved so much.
——— Mind you that this is not guaranteed to completely cure acne, it may help minimize it though. I still use a prescription acne gel myself. If you use products that include these ingredients in it that work for you, that’s absolutely great, I wish my skin would be like that!! Just saying this to put this out there for those like myself with very stubborn acne and who have a hard time controlling it. 🙂 ———
