Breakouts on the face are the worst thing that can happen to a girl, especially if they ‘magically’ appear the day of a big event. Been there done that countless times.
Well, I have got just the product which will rescue you out of that situation (if done the right time and way of course). Ever since I incorporated acid toning to my daily skincare routine, I have barely experienced any breakouts. (Thank you Caroline Hirons)👍.
The weather in Dubai has been pretty gross lately with lots of sandy wind which really doesn’t do my skin any favors. I had suddenly discovered 2 major breakouts on my forehead to my dismay. I took out my favorite Alpha H glycolic acid treatment (which I use every alternate night as a toner). I soaked a piece of cotton wool with it and applied directly on the breakout and kept it there for a few seconds. I kept doing this every 2 hours or so or whenever I remembered throughout the day and the next. The breakouts did not get worse, became less red and disappeared without leaving a scar in about 2 days. It was pure magic. Make sure you keep your face moisturized with a face oil though, as all that toning can be drying.
The trick is to get the breakout in its beginning stage otherwise I am not sure how effective the process would be.
I purchase my Alpha H from Cult Beauty and other alternatives are the Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner and the Pixi Glow Tonic. Make sure you use your Spf the morning after and every morning of course for extra protection.
This month of October I have finished 4 amazing products that I literally can’t live without and already have back ups of.
Firstly the Nuxe Dry Oil is my favorite body oil because it’s light on the skin, leaves my body feeling smooth and soft and also smells wonderful. I like using it at night mostly before bedtime.
Acid toning is the most important part of my skincare routine and 2 products that give my skin a healthy glow is the Alpha H Liquid Gold as well as the Zelens resurfacing facial pads. I alternate between these two every night and ever since I started incorporating these 2 products into my routine, my face has become brighter, smoother and almost poreless. For Zelens, the only drawback is that it is too expensive as are all other Zelens products (my favorite skincare brand).
Lastly, a product I didn’t expect to fall so much in love with is the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum. I use this every morning before my moisturiser. This is the best hydrating serum I have ever tried and nothing beats it. Too bad we can’t find it in Dubai. I ordered mine from Lookfantastic.
Let me know what products you have recently finished and your thoughts. Would love to hear your opinions.
