My skin care routine has changed since the last time I wrote about it. So I suffer from hormonal acne and it sucks. I have two weeks every month with no active zits, then the other two weeks I have angry red painful cystic zits along my cheeks, chin and jaw. Seems every time I schedule an appointment with my dermatologist it gets canceled or rescheduled. Because of that I have recently started using a custom cream made just for me by curology for my acne. I really try to keep it basic and not over complicate it. Less is more. For awhile I kept it very basic and only washed, tone and moisturize. I then slowly added a few products in and feel I’m at a good spot and not over doing it.
On top of my morning and night routine I also use three other products that are great for all over health. Amazing Grass Effervescent Tablets: Green Superfood to get your daily veggies and 8oz of water. I also use their GLOW Vegan Collagen Support with Biotin and Plant Based Protein Powder. I really like the chocolate rose for the glow protein powder, I like to add it to almond or soy milk. The third is water. Make sure to drink lots of water, your skin will love it and so will the rest of your body.
