Okay , so exactly how smart are all of you guys?? I feel like the dumbest person ever reading through all the posts. I was planning on starting a routine with TO products and when i go through everyone’s routines my head spins. Might end up burning my face . Also , do all of you keep a spreadsheet?? If you were choosing a particular acid how did you guys know which one was best? Trial and error? And yes I have watched tons of youtube videos and just ended up even more confused with all the different products. Well done all of you guys for even understanding how to figure out your routine. You all definitely deserve degrees.submitted by /u/rainbowsandturds
*cough* I need this skin!
Tbh he do be looking like a SNACK!
I received some great reasonably-priced sunscreen recommendations, for my breakout-prone skin, in a previous post (feel free to include others). I’m now looking to incorporate Vitamin C in my skin care routine. I’m hoping to find something in Canada (or delivers to Canada) that is relatively inexpensive, well-performing, and suitable for sensitive skin! Any recommendations are greatly appreciated! 😊submitted by /u/cherrysodagingerbeer
I started using the Timeless Q10 serum about a couple of weeks ago. I was using The Ordinary’s Buffet before this and was looking for an upgrade. However, I am not seeing any difference in my skin at all. I didn’t care for Buffet but I felt it was at least more hydrating than the Q10 serum. Anyone else in the same boat who didn’t notice any difference from this serum?submitted by /u/snowbell78
Hi guys! I’ve recently incorporated The Ordinary’s Azelaic Acid 10% into my nighttime routine only (roughly 2 weeks). I oil cleanse, then wash using a foaming cleanser, use an exfoliating toner from Clinique, the Azelaic acid, dramatically different moisturizer by Clinique, then later in the evening (usually a few hours later before bed) I apply Differin Gel. Other than the Azelaic Acid, I’ve been using all of the other products for years.
I have developed a three nasty pimples, painful, itchy, under the skin. They are in my usual hormonal spots and also it’s been very hot, and I’ve been outside sweating my ass off. It also could be due to my sunscreen, which is Vichy 50 spf. I have noticed pimples with the use of the Vichy before.
It could be hormones, it could be the Vichy, the sweat/weather, etc. But I’m wondering if Azelaic Acid is known to cause any sort of purging or anything? I’m hoping it’s something else bc I’ve really been looking forward to using this and my skin was looking great recently, so this is upsetting.
ETA: I’ve researched this online and for some reason hi haven’t gotten a clear answer. Thanks!submitted by /u/bangzoomdone
Thanks to the sub Reddit, I discovered the magic of the Ordinary niacinamide, which I’ve been using diligently for three months.
I explored further, and now have timeless vitamin C, Cerave facial moisturizing lotion, and cerave skin renewing night cream.
I was just seeking your advice on a routine on best ways to use it.
I have the luxury of working from home, so I can also use any of these products during the day
Thanks so much!submitted by /u/grumpycookie
