Skincare changes began tonight: 7/9/2016

  • I quit panoxyl 10% and my persa-gel 10 (although it's a great spot treatment, it's too irritating).
  • I used vaseline on my face and neck to help bring in moisture due to cracked and excessively dry, flaky skin from benzoyl peroxide.
  • I washed that off with cetaphil gentle skin cleanser (a holy grail product)
  • I currently will be using 3 products for the next 2 weeks.
    • Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (morning and night)
    • Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid toner (morning and night)
    • Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (morning and night, depending on daytime schedule)
These are products my skin has liked before and will hopefully like again. My birthday is in 12 days so lets hope good things happen!

Synthroid- for hypothyroidism
Ortho Cyclen- this is my 6th month on it

Hey Elle! 
If you are still suffering from dry, flaky, and irritated skin even with vaseline, try using aloe Vera gel! This helped with the redness, flakiness, and dryness. It's great because it cools down the skin too.

Hey! Thank you so much for the helpful tip! I use straight Aloe Vera plant on sunburns all the time but I find that it makes my face itchy a bit:( I was just rummaging through my medicine cabinet one day as my face and neck were BONE DRY, and I happened to come across Vaseline. It definitely helped but it's very thick and annoying to keep on your skin for long periods of time. Now, about a week later, my skin is finishing its peeling and we're going back to normal! I'd love to hear any other product recommendations as I'm always open to a new HG product in my skincare! Thank you Cortana :)
