I've never been really good at keeping a steady regimen, which I assume is why I've never gotten my blackheads under control. I manage to beat this surprise breakout with a combination of random products that I have at my disposal. But it's motivated me to get on a regular regimen, and I thought logging it here would help me stay motivated.
Here are the products I will be using:
Clean & Clear Soothing Eye Makeup Remover
Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser (5% BP)
Clean & Clear Advantage Blackhead Clearing Astringent (1% SA)
Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer (0.5% SA)
Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment (2% SA)
St. Ives Blemish & Blackhead Clearing Apricot Scrub (2% SA)
Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser and Scrub
Also, in case anyone is wondering, this is the makeup I use to conceal my spots:
Covergirl Concealer Stick
Covergirl Trublend Liquid Foundation
Covergirl Pressed Powder for Normal Skin (although I would say my skin is more combination)
Here's my routine:
Remove makeup if necessary
Spot treat if necessary
Conceal if necessary
I'll be doing this once in the morning and once at night. I will also add the scrub every other day and use the Olay cleanser whenever I am showering outside of the early morning and before bed time frame (such as after the gym).
This is day one and I already like the way my skin is feeling, softer than normal, although it looks exactly the same.
Wish me luck! Also, if you have any advice about products I should be using or warnings about ones that I shouldn't be I welcome it.
