I suffer with hormonal acne and can get blind under the skin lumps form when my hormones are at their highest.
I have lost all confidence, I don’t even like leaving the house when my skin is like that.
Please can I have some help on this matter? I’m new to this site and I’ve followed the create your routine thing on here… but just want to know if there’s anything I could do better / more / less to help reduce the amount of acne?
I’m quite reluctant to try retinol due to my skin being quite sensitive to new products and I can’t bring myself to have even more acne right now… it’s my friends wedding soon and I wanted to try and clear this up as much as possible 😞
Skin type: combination (very fair skin)
Skin concern: cystic hormonal acne / blemishes / uneven skin tone
Simple - Kind Defence Antibacterial Light Moisturiser
Use every day, as many times as needed. For most people, it's best to use a moisturizer twice per day. In the morning, apply it before your sunscreen (or skip the moisturizer in the morning if your sunscreen feels hydrating enough). In the evening, a moisturizer is usually the last step of a routine.
Revolution Skincare - Ceramides Foaming Cleanser
Use a generous amount of product to remove all dirt, sunscreen or makeup in one step. There is no need to double-cleanse. It is a good idea to always finish cleansing with a splash of clean water to remove any residue from the cleanser. Most people only need to cleanse their skin with a cleanser once per day, at night. It is the first step of a night skincare routine.
The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%
Use your azelaic acid product every other day, either in the morning before your sunscreen or at night, before your moisturizer.
