What is your go-to skincare routine? Honestly, I have very sensitive skin that I’m afraid to use anything on my face. I’m so afraid of getting breakouts from skincare products.
I had my share of acne problem when I was in my early 20s. Although it wasn’t severe (thank goodness!), it was still embarrassing. It was mainly caused by stress from when I was still in college. I would get big pimples and I was so bothered by where it was appearing… under my nose! Ugh!!!! Seriously, because it’s right there and there was no way of hiding it!
A friend of mine recommended to make an appointment with an acne doctor. It’s a good thing I went because he prescribed me ointments and he injected my pimples. A painful pinch but it wasn’t so bad.
At that time, I used Noxema and Cetaphil and I also used a moisturizer. None of those helped me. In fact, I was getting more breakouts. The doctor advised me to use Dove soap because it’s inexpensive and it’s gentle on the skin. It worked along with what he prescribed me.
Now that I’m in my late 30’s (I know, right?), I still get breakouts every now and then. There are times when my skin is so nice and clear. There are times when it’s none stop breakouts.
My favourite skincare to use now is Ponds face wash. I love that stuff! I was really hesitant about using it the first time because of breaking out. But now I have to use it!
I do use moisturizers again and I use Tatcha – The Dewy Skin Cream and Caudalie. For night time face wash, I still stick with either Ponds or Dove original.
I would love to know your skincare routine, what products you use and what are your thoughts about it.
