Dylan's Routine For Acne-Prone Skin

28, Acne Prone Skin, Scientist

Dylan's routine

I had clear skin with a super simple routine (wash in the AM and PM), but my acne appeared a year ago and I started going at it in the wrong way. My skin wasn’t getting better and was actually getting worse from all the heavy actives and exfoliation. With that redevelopment of acne, it didn’t make me feel great. But over the past year, I’ve grown to accept it and have made it my goal to remedy it.

I’ve learned to approach most things in self-care in a scientific, factual way. Ingredient knowledge helps us understand how often to use things and how to use them. By understanding exactly what each ingredient is doing, it has helped me make sure that I am not being too harsh on my skin, but instead taking a gentle approach.

DYLAN'S MUST-HAVES

PAPAYA SORBET ENZYME CLEANSING BALM

It removes grime, oil and SPF. It also helps to remove dead skin from my old acne.

WATERMELON GLOW PHA+BHA PORE-TIGHT TONER

I have used a lot of toners in the past and they have been super intense because they’re pure alcohol. But with this, there's no stinging and it goes on smoothly. It's helped to shrink pores especially on my forehead.

AVOCADO MELT RETINOL SLEEPING MASK 

This decreases redness when worn overnight and has helped to shrink little bumps that could turn into pimples.

WATERMELON GLOW SLEEPING MASK

I use this as a wash-off once a week. It gives you a clean slate and super moisture.
