I have been whining for a week now about the state of my skin, as you all know. I decided to leave my skin alone and see would it clear itself. Nothing happened. Enter my skin clearing arsenal:
- Netrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1 Wash
- Clearasil Rapid Action Cream
- Profound Advanced Performance Glycolic Cleanser
After 2 days of using this combination of products my the breakout has dried out. The marks are still these but no more spots are coming up. In the past I have relied on a combination of the Neutrogena 2-in-1 and Clearasil Rapid Action to tackle a bad breakout and they have never let me down. I decided to add in the glycolic cleanser to help eat away the dry skin left from the use of the other 2 products.
Both the Neutrogena wash and the Clearasil cream contain salicylic acid which eats away dead skin cells and penetrates the pore to clean out impurities. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and is anti-bacterial.
Since there are some harsh ingredients in these products, I don’t use them regularly. I like to save them for times that I really need them. Another downside is that the skin on my chin is now flakey and dry (Yuck!) so make-up looks all wrong. Think I’ll be going au naturel this week!
