Hello lovelies! As most of you know, I struggle with oily, acne-prone skin. Sometimes it felt like I was playing a game of whack-a-mole with my blemishes. I'd finally get rid of one pimple, and then two more would pop up. While acne isn't the most fun or glamorous subject to discuss, there's no denying that it makes a huge impact. Not only does bad skin affect your self esteem, but it also affects makeup application. All the concealer in the world can't hide bumps and texture that keep skin from looking and feeling its best.
That's why I've partnered with Oxy to share my tips for treating and preventing acne. Read on for a collection of some of my favorite acne-fighting products and tricks!
1. Get Serious About Your Skincare
My skincare routine used to be horribly inconsistent and unorganized. Some nights I'd diligently use all the right products, then other nights I'd get lazy and leave on my makeup or skip some steps in my routine. I was also constantly switching up products and brands hoping that something would magically erase my blemishes. After years of struggling, I finally had to make the decision to get serious about my skincare.
Thankfully, the Oxy 28 Day Challenge app does all the heavy lifting for you! The app gives you all the tools you need to stick to your skincare routine and track progress along the way. You get a customized, dermatologist-approved skincare plan, along with reminders and tips to keep you on track. My favorite feature is the photo upload tool that allows you to create your own before and after photos!
2. End Your Day the Right Way
No matter how tired I may be at the end of the night, I always take the time for proper skincare. I like to start with a cleanser, like Oxy's Rapid Treatment Face Wash. Not only does it cleanse your skin of all the makeup, grease, and impurities that build up throughout the day, but it also has acne-fighting ingredients like benzoyl peroxide that are crucial for clearing up skin.
3. Tone It Up
Instead of a traditional liquid toner, I like to use Oxy's Rapid Treatment 3-in-1 Pads to control oil and unclog my pores. These pads already come loaded with a salicylic acid acne treatment, so it's definitely a time saver when you're in a hurry.
4. Spot the Problem
As a final step in my nighttime skincare regime, I apply Oxy's Rapid Spot Treatment to any active blemishes. This targeted formula is perfect for those moments when you feel a nasty pimple coming on. Just dab on a bit of the cream, leave it on overnight, and stop that blemish in its tracks.
Those are all of my tips for getting clearer skin in 28 days! If you decide to take the Oxy 28 Day Challenge, be sure to download the app and and share your results using the hashtag #28DayChallenge. I can't wait to see before and after photos of your beautiful, clear skin!
