While a clean diet, healthy lifestyle, and great skincare routine should theoretically leave you with clear and blemish-less skin, we know that’s not always the case. Hormones, stress, undiscovered food sensitivities (or sometimes indulgences like the occasional slice of pizza for me) can all contribute to less than perfect skin. I’ve personally been dealing with a few stubborn breakouts for months that have been really annoying.
I’m playing with my diet/lifestyle and working with a new functional doc, so hopefully I can get to the bottom of the problem with my skin. Although it’s not a big deal in the greater scheme of things, breakouts and blemishes can definitely be a hit to my confidence and a bit of a hassle. I have to adjust my skincare to account for the sensitive or active areas, I usually choose to wear makeup to cover the spots, and then heavy cleansing the makeup/sunscreen from the area just feels like making it worse!
Luckily, I’ve found a great little group of products that have made dealing with my breakouts much easier. I’ve tried A LOT of acne lines and products, and was a huge fan of Proactiv back in the day (and up until a few years ago, actually). The products I’m sharing today are hands down some of the best that I’ve tried. I’ve got two masks, two spot treatments and a bonus item that if you follow me on Instagram, you already know I love!
