I have a less than optimal sleep schedule and usually clock in about five to six hours every night. I am never in bed early and usually fall asleep after three in the morning. Now, it should already be common knowledge that our skin regenerates and recovers best at night, so when I don’t get proper — and sufficient — sleep, my skin quality is compromised. And trust me, it does not get any better on weekends. What I do always ensure though, is that I’ll never skip out on my skincare regime no matter how tired I am before I head to bed. This way, I can at least give my skin the nutrients and vitamins it needs. Plus, I do mask every other day too.
When I was in my teens, I also had terrible acne, especially on my forehead. It got better after a few years and I while I thought that those days were over, adult acne paid me a visit. My skin, if not well taken care of, tends to flare up easily — especially in between my eyebrows and on my chin. Having dealt with acne-prone skin and congestion over the years, above are the six products that I’ve put on constant rotation.
