Ladies can you help me with that? As you can see in the picture this area under my eyes are getting SO dry. I’ve put a little of the organic rose hip seed oil then tried to put on some concealer (the tarte one) but looks even more dry. Any good products for dry skin under eyes? Specially before putting make up on...
Ever since I’ve been in quarantine I’ve been amping up my skincare routine. I cleanse, tone, moisturize and occasionally use a serum or Rosehip seed oil as well... and I do this 1-2x a day. I have pretty decent skin but I can’t seem to understand why these angry breakouts keep popping up randomly, especially on the lower region of my face. Perhaps hormonal? I’m trying proactiv on them, I face mask about twice a week, I just don’t get it. Maybe I’m using too much product? Or washing my face only in the middle of the day too much rather than before bed or in the morning? Please help me understand haha because when I get pimples like this they turn into dark spots and last for weeks sometimes even months :/
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. 🙂 ———
