Acne Skin Care Routine

I have been battling breakouts since November due to stress and eating habits. Since then I’ve been trying new products and new routines to help control my breakouts. I don’t like using new products until I’ve used my old ones up, but since those products weren’t working I thought why not try something new.

I’ve had two new products from Drunk Elephant since my birthday that I haven’t tried because I had five other skincare products I wanted to use first. I’ve been using the Drunk Elephant products for the past month and they have worked tremendously!!!

Drunk Elephant cleanser

I began using this cleanser simultaneously with the moisturizer and it helped clean my skin of all impurities which helped remove my acne and acne scars. Within the month of using this product my skin had dramatic differences. I only needed a little bit of product just enough to cover the tip of my pinky when applying it everyday twice a day in the morning and before bed. This product is vegan and 100% cruelty-free which is amazing since that’s one of my standards when choosing products. This product is also fragrance, silicone and essential oils meaning their is no scent to irritate your skin. 

10/10 would recommend this product!

Drunk Elephant moisturizer

According to the Drunk Elephant’s product description, “Protini’s proprietary formula delivers younger, revived-looking skin, almost from the first application. Lines, wrinkles, and signs of sun-damage appear reduced and skin feels strengthened and moisturized.” I can say that their product helped make my skin with sun-damage and feel hydrated. I learned a little bit went a LONG way with this product. My skin felt more plumped since using the product. This product is vegan and 100% cruelty-free which is amazing since that’s one of my standards when choosing products. This product is also fragrance, silicone and essential oils meaning their is no scent to irritate your skin. I finished this product in a month!

10/10 would recommend this product. 

Acne Moisturizer

I bought this moisturizer from Wal-Mart and it’s the bomb! I was using it daily in the morning and before bed every night. It’s thin, has a slight smell that isn’t strong and it’s very smooth on my skin. I think it’s helped fight my breakouts. This product does contain salicylic acid which is what you WANT in your products when battling breakouts. The only thing this moisturizer doesn’t have is SPF.

10/10 would recommend this product. 

Hyaluronic Acid

I’ve been wanting to try this product for a while and I finally bought a bottle last month. I apply this serum once in the morning and again before bed. I’ve noticed a difference in my skin since using this product. My skin is dry and with the weather constantly changing my skin tends to get drier so having this serum has helped changed my skin dramatically. My skin is no longer dry, but I’m still going to keep using this product because I’m sure once I stop my skin will go back to being dry.

This product has helped my skin feel more hydrated, young, and elastic. I only use 3 drops when applying and then I massage the serum into my face in a circular motion. It keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day.

10/10 would recommend this product. 

Pimple patches

I bought this 24 pack of pimple patches through Avon.com and was told from a friend that they work great, but to be cautious as they can dry out your skin. So how it works is before bed you apply a pimple patch which is a small circle sticker on top of your break out area and leave it on there until the next morning. The next day you remove the pimple patch and your pimple should be significantly smaller if not gone. It is advised on the packaging to not apply too many pimple patches in the same area as it won’t do much. I’ve had pretty good success with using a couple of the patches from my pack in the last couple of weeks. I will say it doesn’t do anything for acne scars just for new pimples you’re hoping to decrease and disappear quickly. It does dry out the skin in that area. I would advise having another product to help with the acne scars that this product leaves behind when getting rid of the pimples. 

8/10 would recommend, but get another product to use as a supplement to help with acne scars.
