The last time I’ve written an article about my skin care regimen for acne prone skin was way back in 2014 and you guys deserve an update! I’ve explored and tried so many different products last year and stuck with what works. As you can see on the photo above most are almost on their empties. What makes this post special is that not only does it focus on how to treat your pimples, it also conjucts with effective brightening products to lighten the acne marks and pimple scars!
Are you ready? I’m passionate about these products and I hope they work for you too! Here’s my list!
#1 BANILA CO CLEAN IT ZERO (click here for the full review: banila co clean it zero review)
Did you know that it does not only work to remove makeup? Here’s a secret I’ve discovered; massage it on your face, rub it gently especially on the nose, cheeks and chin where there are a lot of whiteheads and blackheads and feel them miraculously come off! No kidding! I use this for deep cleansing once a month (tinitipid ko LOL). Warning: Do not rub on your face for more than 15 minutes because I rubbed it on for like 2 hours and I got red spots all over my face. It was my fault.
#2 POND’s ACNE CLEAR WHITE FACIAL WASH
Whenever I get nasty breakouts or cystic pimples that pop out (so annoying) I buy a tube of Pond’s Acne Clear White Facial Wash in the nearest drugstore. It seems to cleanse the skin thoroughly and with its salicylic acid (BHA) and niacinamide; it helps dry out pimples faster and ease out the redness of my cheeks. It’s my go-to facial wash when my skin is acting up bad.
#3 PIXI GLOW TONIC (click here for the full review: pixi glow tonic review)
It’s magic in a bottle. It’s a gentle exfoliant using glycolic acid (AHA), chamomile, aloe, and other skin loving ingredients. Sensitive skinned folks should be happy because it’s sensitive safe! It works hand in hand with the Pond’s Acne Clear White Facial Wash because BHA (beta hydroxy acid) + AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) when used in conjuction is the perfect formula for skin clearing and exfoliation
#4 KATI ALIS (click here for the full review: kati alis review)
OMG I’ve been raving about this product for YEARS. Folks I am not paid by Kati-Alis, I’m just so happy that since 1940’s pa ata when they started selling this miracle overnight spot cream. It works for pimples, blackheads, eczema, fungus and other skin diseases. But I use it for my really stubborn cystic pimples. It dries them overnight. YES. But make sure you’re aware that it will dry the area and can cause peeling but it’s okay because after your skin is healed you’re back to being flawless
#5 MALISSA KISS WHITE ME UP SLEEPING MASK (review soon)
Surprise surprise! You know how we use masks on a weekly basis so that our skin gets that extra loving and nourishment right? Thailand’s best selling mask is finally in the Phililppines and I got to try it for over 2 months. IT WORKS. It really does that’s why I’m reviewing this in FULL soonest. You apply a thick layer over your face and neck before you go to bed. I use it 2x a week or a night before a party or an event and when you wake up. Ta-da! My face looks brighter, fresher, fairer and well-rested. I’m still gushing while I’m writing this now.
*whew* There you go gorgeous guys and gals! Let me know if you have any questions, comments or if you have tried these products too. Just comment in below. I respond! (though not ASAP as I’m a busy gal) love ya!
