I know I talk about skincare a lot and I am totally ok with that. I find that I have found most of my “holy grail” skincare products from other bloggers and any time I am thinking about purchasing any new products I always look online for reviews to see what others have to say about them. So for me, talking about skincare products I am loving and use frequently/believe in is a win/win for both me and you! I get to talk about something I am passionate about and you get to find a new product!! And today, we are going to talk about my favorite skincare products for adult acne…gross, I know!!
I know I have been waiting for fall for what seems to be forever now but I can tell the weather is actually changing (or getting ready to) because I have been experiencing some mild breaking out lately. YUCK! Something about the seasons changing always sends my skin into a tailspin. I feel like I just got my skincare routine really down and then I started breaking out realized I was completely out of my go-to acne skincare products. Of course, right? Ugh.
Normally my skin is pretty “normal”. It is oily in my t-zone but normal other than that. I tan really well, only have a few fine lines (I call that a win at 34) and in some places my skin tone is uneven. I say all this to tell you about my skin so if this sounds like you then maybe these products will work for you too!!
A couple of years ago I discovered the Clinique Acne Solutions Clear Skin System. I know, you are probably thinking, Clinique? For acne products? But my answer is YES!! Clinique has an amazing line of products specifically for people who have acne and it is literally the best system I have found that actually works quickly and makes my skin feel good!!
The first time I purchased Clinique’s full system I used all the products according to the labels….washed the makeup off my face, used the Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam, used the Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion and then used the Acne Solutions Clearing Moisturizer. I used it for two days, just once a day each day, and by the end of the second day I looked and felt like I had the worst sunburn of my life. I felt like I had gotten either the worst sunburn of my life just on my face or like I had just gotten a serious peel done at a spa. Whatever the reason I’m pretty sure a layer of skin came off and my skin was the clearest it has ever been.
I’m not going to lie, those products scared me for a little while after that but since then I have quit using the moisturizer and only use the Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam followed by the Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion and then my normal, everyday moisturizer and my skin is like a dream!! No sunburn, no dryness, only clear skin! I honestly think that the combination of all three products was just way too much for my skin and so by switching out the moisturizer for my regular one I saved my skin.
The active ingredient in Clinique’s Acne Solutions line are Salicylic Acid and Acetyl Glucosamine which both help clear dead skin cells and prevent the build up of oil that can lead to breakouts.
So if you suffer from transitional/seasonal skin breakouts and haven’t found the products that work best for you then I highly suggest Clinique Acne Solutions System!! This post is not sponsored in any way I just really love these products!!
Do you breakout from the seasons changing??
