New Skincare Routine

Iโ€™m trying to find a new skincare routine. I have combo/acne prone skin and I was using the Tula purifying cleanser but itโ€™s not working for me anymore. I also recently started using the glow recipe dew drops, toner, and moisturizer and it started breaking me out. Does anyone have any recommendations?


Re: New Skincare Routine

@faithvento I use Differin adapalene gel every day (not sold at Sephora, but it's great stuff) and this definitely helps reduce and prevent my acne.


I like moisturizers that are "gel cream" or otherwise formulated for oily skin. LANEIGE Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Gel Moisturizer 1.6 oz/ 50 mL is a good one (honestly the LANEIGE Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Cream Moisturizer 1.6 oz/ 50 mL is good too if you struggle with sometimes dry skin, and it doesn't break me out).


If your acne is hormonal, you might try Dr. Zenovia Skincare Clear Complexion Acne Solutions System - and/or the Dr. Zenovia Advanced Retinol Night Repair Treatment, which appears to no longer be sold at Sephora but is my holy grail!

Re: New Skincare Routine

Iโ€™d recommend the Paulaโ€™s Choice CLEAR system! They have regular and extra strength on a three step routine that has really helped me!
