Throughout my life, my skin has usually behaved. My latter years in high school and first year of college, I had the worst skin of my entire life. Blemishes, breakouts, you name it. I knew I had to take care of my skin but I wasn’t sure how. My mother was actually the one who saved my skin.
She is a representative for Rodan+Fields, a company run by the doctors behind the formula for Proactiv+. She showed me their Unblemish line, and I fell in love with the products. I use the four step system, utilizing every product in the line.
Every night, I wash my face with the Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash, rubbing it into my skin for at least sixty seconds. If it stings, it means it’s working!
The second step of the system is the Clarifying Toner, which I put onto a little cotton pad and wipe all over my face. If I have a blemish or two, I’ll usually rub the toner over them a second time before switching to the third step.
The third step is to use the Dual Intensive Acne Treatment. I usually follow this routine at night, so this is usually the last step. If I do this in the morning, I follow up with the fourth step, the Oil Control SPF 20 Sunscreen.
I follow some other steps for my skincare outside of this routine! I try to drink as much water as possible and limit my intake of sugary foods/drinks. I also try to sleep at least seven to eight hours a night, because rested skin is healthy skin! I shower daily as well (being a collegiate athlete forces me to do so) so that helps with cleaner skin.
One other product that I like to use is a spot treatment from Kiehl’s, the Blue Herbal Spot Treatment. If I have one blemish pop up during the day, I try to use this spot treatment until I can use the Rodan+Fields routine.
An alternative spot treatment that I’ve been a fan of is from Origins, the Super Spot Remover Acne Treatment Gel. Like the Kiehl’s spot treatment, I use it during the day before following up with my routine at night or the next morning.
This is my skin care routine! I hope that you find it helpful and maybe try some of these products yourself! If you would like to try any of the Rodan+Fields products, please contact me! I would love to help you find your best skin. They also offer different products for anti-aging, skin repair, and soothing skin.
