So I had to share my most recent skin care routine which has done a number and worked miracles for me. I have struggled for years with acne. I don’t have serious acne, if you do I suggest going to the dermatologist as I am sharing what works for me as it may not work for you the same. I have combination skin so my nose and chin get extremely oily throughout the day. I never tried those oil blotting sheets because I have heard it only makes it more oily from a few people who have tried it and my point is to help my skin get better for good not temporarily.
So since High School I struggled with these ridiculous pimples, but they only came here and there as they were like 5 pimples in one. They would be monstrous and very noticeable since my skin isn’t too bad in the sense of breaking out all over. I would get them on my nose and look like rudolph the red nose reindeer, LOL. Yes I would make fun of myself and use my jacket to try and hide my nose or try to look down with my hair covering because I would feel like people were just looking at it as they spoke to me. Even now as an adult I was still struggling as I kept trying to find the best skin care routine they would occur under my skin and turn into these huge red bumps out of no where. Until recently when I got on top of my skin care routine and stopped being lazy, in the sense of having too much fun at night and forgetting to wash my face before bed.
So first and foremost as seen in my previous post I am loyal to Cetaphil facial wash. Ever since the dermatologist recommended it, yes I saw a derm for a little while and got like 3 facials done before this discovery. I still use Cetaphil every night and every morning, I made it a part of my routine because I used to be really lazy when it came to that, which as I got older I became more responsible about it. I now also use the apricot scrub to exfoliate my skin twice a week. This might be the best thing I ever did for myself. I used to use the Clarisonic everyday and that helped for a while but I feel like using an exfoliating scrub with the Clarisonic only twice a week has done miracles to my skin and pores.
Now the best part of my skin care routine is the facial cream I began to use. I used to use Cetaphil on my skin but I would still get oily throughout the day on my nose and chin and eventually have one of my ridiculous breakouts. I now use Visionnaire by Lancome and it is has been the best thing I ever did for my skin. Just feeling the cream feels like pearls against your skin. Not only does it help with anti-aging and correcting your skin but it minimizes your pores. It took me a while before I decided to try it, because years ago I got my makeup done and they tried to sell it to me and I was like ehh I don’t really need any of that anti-aging stuff. Well as you get older you notice the difference of your skin and changes that occur. So I definitely had been searching for a good remedy and remembered the girl that told me about it and went out and decided to try it. Now no matter your age ladies, don’t do what I did and wait till you started seeing some changes. Take the risk and try new things because it may actually be good for your. For instance, this facial cream has been the best thing I ever did for myself! I love it and you can see the difference in my skin, it is more defined and my makeup comes out even better than before. You guys tell me what you think! See the pics below.
Before- with my long hair!!
After- With my new hair 😉
Ps. Wow lolol these were only a few months apart and I look so different. I love it! and my skin definitely glows more! I definitely recommend Visionnaire! The price may be a little too high for some, but if you think about how much is spent on all the products in drug stores to try and clear up your skin, I say it is definitely worth it! It has done great on my skin! Goodluck and I hope I helped a bit in your skin routine!
