Updated Skin Care Routine

Hey loves welcome back to my blog.

Today I really wanna dive back into the topic of skincare. If you’ve been a reader of my blog you’ll remember I did a really detailed post on my skincare routine a few months. That routine has drastically changed.

I’ve eliminated a few products, and picked up great recommendations from YouTube and beauty blogs. All in all I’ve discovered that for skincare less is more.

So what’s changed?

Pretty much everything!

I’ve swapped out my Johnson’s skincare products for Clean and Clear and said goodbye to my Cuticura products as well.

I’ve scaled down to just 3 great products that focus on my problem areas.

I had been using Clean and Clear Bar Soaps prior to seeing the beauty YouTuber lizlizlive‘s “MY MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE | Why I Don’t Get Pimples”

After watching her video and relating to some of her skincare concerns I decided to purchase a few products and see for myself.

For gentle cleansing and removing surface dirt I use the Clean And Clear Facial Cleansing Bar. (I previously used the blackhead clearing bar and just decided to switch things up.)

Then for deep cleaning I use the Blackhead Clearing Daily Scrub.

And finally I moisturise with the Dual Action Moisturiser.

Was it worth it?

Absolutely, Clean and Clear is excellent at targeting specific skin problems. In my previous post I mentioned how I struggled endlessly with whiteheads. Clean and Clear contains a generous amount of Salicylic Acid in both it’s scrub and moisturiser. A compound that directly targets whiteheads and oil build up in the dermal layer.

Its best summarised in this excerpt from healthline

Salicylic acid

Like benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid can decrease oil production in pores. It also dries out the surface of the skin, getting rid of dead skin cells that can clog up your pores.

Salicylic acid may be most beneficial as a preventive measure against whiteheads. You can use it 1 to 3 times daily. It’s available in acne toners and astringents, as well as creams and gels. Some face moisturizers also contain salicylic acid.

The great thing about Clean and Clear products is that a small amount is good enough to do the necessary job. This means you won’t have to worry about constantly running out of products for quite a while.

Clean and Clear has a very expansive skincare range that I’d love to try. Make sure to follow my blog to get updates on my skincare journey.

I’m very happy with Clean and Clear. Let me know in the comments if you’ve used their products and how you feel about them.
