It’s back to school season! And it’s literal for me this time. Yikes! I’ve been out of a classroom for over a year, but I have one last class left to take this fall at Cal State Long Beach. So I’m preparing my notebooks and backpack right now. However, I’ve been getting my skin ready for the last couple of weeks. Every time I’m stressed or have a big event coming up I break out. This time I wasn’t going to let that happen. I took the Neutrogena “Let’s Solve It” quiz (SolveMyAcne.com) and got a personalized routine based on my skin type in order to combat my breakouts. I suggest you check it out yourself! It’s helped so far. So here’s my daily routine from morning to night.
Step 1: In the morning I like to cleanse my skin with Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Acne Wash. I not only have sensitive skin, but I also have combination skin (some parts are oily and others dry) so this gel cleanser is perfect for me as it treats and helps prevent my pesky breakouts without over drying my skin. It’s really gentle.
Step 2: Even though I clean my skin thoroughly some makeup still manages to linger on my skin. So prior to putting on my makeup I like to cleanse my skin one more time with cleansing wipes. These are so convenient as they are easy to use, get rid of pore clogging impurities, and leave my skin feeling fresh without any residue.
My favorite part about these two items is that they have a fresh grapefruit scent, rather than a medicine smell as the majority of acne products tend to have.
Step 3: Then, right before I apply my first makeup product I like to apply a sheer layer of Neutrogena’s Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-On Mask. I only need to use very little of it at a time as you can see. But, this little amount get’s the job done! Sometimes I use it at night as well.
Step 1: For my night routine I like to be a little more aggressive with my routine. So I cleanse my face with a new Neutrogena product I was recently introduced to, Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser. It’s my favorite as I feel it reduces the size of my pimples and gets rid of acne really fast, faster than any other product I’ve used before. Which is truly impressive.
Step 2: Now, to combat my pimples a step further I use a bit of spot on gel on every single little pimple. This gets rid of them even faster. The product goes deep down into pores to kill the acne bacteria that causes pimples and helps stop new ones from forming.
I think I’m pretty much ready to head back at this point. Wish me luck on my senior seminar. I’ll for sure need it! Luckily I’ll have all my Neutrogena products with me to help my skin out when my stress levels go up to the roof. lol
