Generally blessed to have good skin, until I started breaking out like mad a few months back on my forehead and upper lip area.

Upon the advice of a friend, I tried AHA/BHA to clear myself up from Paula’s Choice and Drunken Elephant’s Babyfacial but it seemed to make everything much worse.

I finally went to HeyDay and my facialist berated me for following the advice that wasn’t right for my skin type. Her theory was that my pores were getting clogged and irritated from being extremely dehydrated (NYC winters) and suggested that I use a gentler cleanser, an exfoliant, and an intense healing balm.

My skin is SO much better now with the extra moisture so my regimen is as follows:

Grown Alchemist Gel Cleanser – Half pump to remove make-up, half pump to cleanse. Day and nighttime.

Naturopathica Healing Balm Mix with HA and/or MH Vitamin C serum to make it less thick. Use higher concentration at night for healing and less in day because it can be a bit shiny.

Cosmedica Hyaluronic Acid Honestly, just the Amazon default HA and suits my purposes to mix with the Naturopathica Healing Balm.

Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum Mix with Naturopathica Healing Balm. I bought this on a whim and my skin got worse when I ran out so I re-introduced this back into my regimen as an HA alternative.

Grown Alchemist Exfoliant Use 2-3x a week to gently exfoliate at nighttime after cleansing.

Mad Hippie Sunscreen Terrible at using this daily, but that is the goal!
