It is quite a headache when you cannot keep your acne at bay most especially when you are already an adult. Perhaps, your acne might be caused by your lifestyle exposed to stress, lack of sleep, and pollution. Thus, an effective yet simple skincare routine to control your acne will aid your concerns. However, note that when using skincare products for acne, active ingredients are needed! Ahead are 5 skincare products you can incorporate to your nighttime skincare routine to effectively fight against acne and rough texture:
- Cleanser – Cosrx Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser, P510
This super gentle cleanser from Cosrx is a low pH formula gel cleanser that does not strip off your skin’s natural oils. Usually, when skin lacks oil, skin reacts by secreting more oil which eventually results to acne. This cleanser contains purifying botanical ingredients and mild acids to gently slough away dead skin cells on your skin and to keep it moist, supple, and smooth. It is also formulated to remove makeup and grime residue with a pH of 5.
- Treatment Mask – The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, P650
This treatment peeling solution is a water-based exfoliating mask that targets acne, uneven skin tone and texture, as well as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Basically, this product from The Ordinary is a miracle in a bottle because of its drastic glowing effects on skin. However, this must be applied only once or twice a week and washed off after 10 minutes after cleansing.
- Toner – Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic, P1400
This toner from Pixi exfoliates the skin with glycolic acid, refining the appearance of pores. This also contains ginseng that improves circulation and aloe vera that soothes and hydrates. It also balances, heals for a more radiant, healthier looking skin. Apply this onto clean face with a cotton pad and sweep across face, neck and décolletage (avoiding eye area), and follow through with a serum or moisturizer.
- Serum – Sunday Riley Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment, P5660
This multi-purpose treatment from Sunday Riley reduces fine lines, fights hyper-pigmentation, heals visible scars, and boosts blood circulation. Glycolic acid will also surely keep your acne at bay. It also assures gentle exfoliation to skin without compromising skin’s condition, whether sensitive or normal.
- Moisturizer – Emrbyolisse Lait-Crème Concentrate, P1390
This 3-in-1 lotion that helps restore harmony in skin, nourishes areas of dryness and protects skin from aggressors. While this is mainly for moisturizing, this is good for acne-prone skin because after you use other active ingredients in your skincare routine, this lightweight moisturizer somehow dilutes them. “Diluting” active ingredients are good especially for those who have sensitive skin. This also quickly absorbs, leaving your skin feeling plumped, soothed and fresh.
