Fresh Face // My Skincare Staples


I don’t want to jinx anything… but my skin is the best it’s been since the time I was twelve years old. I can’t help but sing my praises, because, as many of you know if you’ve followed me on my journey, I have struggled with acne-prone skin for nearly five years. That’s a heck of a long time to be stressed out about breakouts.

Within the last couple months, I have noticed significant improvements in my skin. For the first time in years I feel confident enough to wear a bear face, save for a few spots of concealer. I never even used to walk out of my house without foundation on.

My skin texture has become 20x smoother and I have even noticed a reduction in dark marks and scaring. I am a happy girl, and today I decided to share a few of my skincare staples with all of you. On a side note, I would never promote products that I don’t 100% support and approve of. I am here to help even just one of you improve the state of your skin, so I only recommend my holy grail products.

1. Derma E Purifying Daily Detox Scrub

For months I struggled to find the perfect exfoliator that wasn’t too harsh or drying on my skin, but was still able to give my pores a deep clean. After some trial and error, I found the best one I’ve ever tried. The Derma E exfoliator with activated charcoal leaves my skin feeling refreshed, clean and smooth. It has tiny exfoliating beads which gently scrub away the makeup residue and build up from the day. Many times, whether I’m taking a shower or bath, I leave the exfoliator on for about 5 minutes which acts as a mask as well. I couldn’t recommend this product more.

2. Derma E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask

Want to try out a face mask that works? Derma E’s mask with activated charcoal draws out impurities and cleans out pores for a deep cleanse. I treat myself to this mask about two times per week, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. My skin is always left feeling smooth, radiant and my pores are noticeably smaller. Charcoal face masks are a must have for me, but this one is the best one I’ve tried yet.

3. Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer

Maybe it’s a coincidence, but around the exact time I noticed my skin was clearing up, I had just begun using the Aveeno clear complexion moisturizer in both the morning and at night. It is made with a natural active soy complex and promotes even skin tone and texture, specially made for acne-prone skin. I purchased it on a whim, but have been obsessed with this product for nearly three months now and I’m currently on my second bottle. I think my skin reacts very well to the soy complex, and I honestly think it is a huge factor in the improvements in my skin. I am not the type to trust over-the-counter products for my face, but this Aveeno moisturizer has been a true life savor. I don’t think I’ll ever stop using it. I would say it’s worth a try for anyone looking to banish breakouts. It has never left my skin oily, but has also never left my skin without enough moisture- just the perfect balance.

I have been seriously contemplating doing a post all about how I cleared my acne, tricks, tips and what I did. It is a very personal subject for me, but if it helps anyone I would be willing to tell my full story. If you are interested in a more in-depth post about how I got rid of my acne (with before and after pictures) please leave me a comment down below. I want to write what you all want to read, and would appreciate any feedback you have for me.
