I always hear the saying “if it isn’t broken, don’t try to fix it” well that’s exactly what i’ve done with my skin care routine. I’ve been using the same routine for over two years now to help to minimise my acne breakouts. When you try to clear acne you don’t see results straight away with skincare, it often gets worse just before it gets better. So keep that in mind if you’re trying out a new skincare product. I use the Clinique three step anti-blemish treatment every morning and evening to cleanse my skin, and depending on whether I have any active spots I also use the clearing gel.
My skin has good and bad periods, it’s like a Russian roulette it can either be amazing or really bad. But I always feel like my skincare routine helps my breakouts clear really quickly.
The three step system is pretty self explanatory, you first wash your face with the cleansing foam, then you use the clarifying lotion on a cotton bud, and finally you moisturise. The clearing gel isn’t for every day, it helps dry out active breakouts so they go quicker.
It might seem like a lot to do everyday, and it is expensive in comparison to other alternatives but it’s something that’s really helped to improve my skin. So I hope it’ll help you too if you decide to give it a go.
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know your skincare routine down below I was thinking of trying some alternatives!
