acne life savers!



  • hello again! just wanted to update you all with some of my favorite acne treatment products that are both gentle and work well with multiple skin types.

    (disclaimer: if you have cystic acne or very serious acne, these products may not work for you. i would highly suggest talking to a dermatologist.)

    COSRX ONE STEP ORIGINAL CLEAR PAD, $20
    this literally clears up my skin overnight! even if it does not get rid of the acne completely, my blemishes are extremely reduced and less irritated. this acts as a toner, so it is recommended that you use it after cleansing to re-balance your skin's pH. it claims to work well with sensitive skin, and has the ingredients betaine salicylate and willow bark water. i do not use spot treatment with this, since it is best not to layer acne treatment. it works well on its own anyway!

    PEACE OUT ACNE HEALING DOTS, $19
    i cannot rave about these enough. after a slightly larger than normal (and annoying) pimple has risen to the surface (or you've popped one––not to worry, we're all guilty here) put one of these bad boys on top and keep it on overnight. (you can also use these during the day, just keep it on for 6+ hours.) these actually work. they not only pull all the sebum out and extract impurities, they also work to heal your blemish with vitamin A and aloe vera (good for sensitive skin!!!). next time you think about using a drying lotion or solution, try these instead. they go on like stickers and stay on while you sleep!

    COSRX ACNE PIMPLE MASTER PATCH, $6
    a cheaper alternative to the peace out dots, these don't work quite as well but are great if you're on a budget! only really works on an open blemish. they do the job!

    THE BODY SHOP TEA TREE OIL, $10 (on sale right now for $8.50 @ Ulta!)
    a staple! i use this as a natural and soothing treatment for acne. sometimes i use a cotton swab and use dab it on as a spot treatment, and most of the time i mix it with rosehip seed oil to soothe and cure acne scars after i've moisturized.

    THE BODY SHOP TEA TREE BLEMISH FADE NIGHT LOTION, $20
    i use this in the fall/winter as a moisturizer and acne healing treatment. i always see some sort of difference in my complexion by morning.

    ASTARA BLUE FLAME PURIFICATION MASK, $28
    this is my favorite purifying mask by far! the smell is intense and the cooling effect is strong, but it feels so good and really works. i see a total difference in my skin the day after i've used it. i normally leave it on for about 20-30 minutes, or until i has completely dried down. then i use a damp washcloth to take it off. sometimes i use this as an overnight spot treatment & it works just as well!

    i hope these help!! more posts to come in the future. stay glowing!
