I first started breaking out my Junior year of high school. My acne was extremely painful and really hard to cover up with makeup. I was fortunate enough to meet with a great dermatologist who taught me that the key to great skin is effective products and sticking to a routine. Thankfully, I took my Drs. advice and swore to only use products for my skin type and never miss a day without properly cleansing my skin. It was a long journey to get here, but I can finally say I’ve found the best products for not only treating my acne, but also improving the overall tone and texture of my skin. I’ve rounded up my top three can’t live without skincare products. I hope they are as life changing to you as they were to me. Bonus! You can find all of these products at Sephora.
1. I love this Biossance oil, as a pre-cleanser. It removes all of my facial makeup but never leaves my skin feeling greasy. Bonus, its made without any toxic chemicals and it’s cruelty free.
2. Using a sonic tool is essential to removing any build up on the skin. My favorite is the Foreo because it gently buffs away 99% of your surface dirt, oil, and bacteria. I also love that its made from silicone so you save money but not having to replace brush heads like most cleansing tools on the market.
3. Dr. Dennis Gross peel pads are pricey but definitley worth the investment. These magical pads will act as your at home facial. Not only will it help with breakouts, its also great to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. I like to use mine a couple of times a week or whenever I feel like my skin needs an extra boost.
