Y’all, my skin is clearer right now than it has been in years. YEARS, I tell you. (I probably just jinxed myself by saying that and will wake up in the morning with a whole entire constellation of zits on my face. Insert eye roll.) It’s not due to a lack of stress (hello, building and moving into a new house), so I’m assuming it has everything to do with my nighttime skin care routine.
In case you are like me, and are STILL dealing with acne, even at, ahem, 30-something years of age, I’m sharing my secrets with you.
My Nighttime Skin Care Routine, Cast of Characters:
As a toner, I use Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel. I happened upon this product in my search for more natural, organic products for our life and our home. It has been a total game changer and if you try nothing else from my list, I would recommend this.
Next up, I apply Glymedplus Benzoyl Peroxide solution to my acne-prone areas (or any area that already had acne.)
I let the benzoyl peroxide solution dry for a few seconds and then follow it up with Oil of Olay complete lotion all over my entire face.
Occasionally, I’ll dab various eye creams under and around my eyes for added moisture. I feel like that’s a necessary routine at my age, but I haven’t noticed any changes.
And that’s it. My whole nighttime skin care routine takes about 3 minutes. My face is completely clear for the first time in years and I’ve even seen a reduction in acne scarring.
Do you have a favorite skin care product? Something amazing for the under-eye area, maybe? I would love for you to share that with me in the comments!
