I have found an affordable and realistic routine for keeping my acne-prone skin blemish free as much as possible.
- Dr Organic Skin Clear Exfoliating Face Scrub
- Dr Organic Skin Clear Deep Pore Face Wash
- The Ordinary: Rosehip Seed oil
- Body Shop Tea Tree oil
- Holland & Barrett Natural Evening Primrose Oil plus Vitamin B6
Once I wake up I take 2 primrose oil capsules (each capsule is 500 μg) with a glass of water.
Primrose oil naturally treats PMS symptoms because of its essential fatty acid content and treats hormonal acne.
I then wash my face first with Dr Organic Skin Clear Exfoliating Face Scrub and then with Dr Organic Skin Clear Deep Pore Face Wash. I purchased these both from Holland & Barrett. I was recommended these by my cousin and I see why she likes Dr Organic products so much because my skin feels really refreshed and isn’t harsh on the dry patches of my face. These two products are perfect for people who have sensitive skin like me! ^-^
Then I moisturise my face with The Ordinary: Rosehip Seed oil. I like this oil because it doesn’t feel heavy on my face, but I have to say I don’t like the pipette, it’s really annoying because I can drop too much oil in one area of my face at times, so do be careful!
Night time routine!
I don’t use makeup wipes because they cause an imbalance in the pH of my skin and they are really harsh on my skin instead I wash off my makeup using my normal shower gel (I’ve been doing this for years, don’t judge me).
I do wash my face again using the Dr Organic Skin Clear Exfoliating Face Scrub again just to make sure I really have scrubbed out all the makeup from my pores. Again, I moisturise using the Rose hip seed oil. (Issa holy grail people!)
I do use the Body Shop Tea Tree oil in any areas where I have blemishes. I’ll wait about 15 minutes for the oil to skin into my skin before I apply tea tree oil onto a cotton pad and place it on my spot. I leave it there for a good 5 minutes for my skin to soak up the tea tree oil.
And that’s it! That’s my acne fighting skin care routine! ^-^
I hope you found this to be helpful! 🙂
