Hi. I know this video has been a long time coming. I wanted to make sure the skincare routine I was using worked. I wanted to show you guys real results on my skin healing and was stable. I feel like it is now so I want to share my routine. PLEASE remember I’m not an expert in this field. This is what worked for ME. Remember that all these routines you watch don’t think it will 100% for sure work ok? Keep trying and give each routine a chance and time to work. I didn’t see results for 1.5 months when some see it in in weeks. Everyone is different. Please don’t be discouraged because the next thing might work. If you do try out this routine and it works let me know! I want to celebrate with you! If not, it’s okay!!!! You can talk to me still I know it sucks but I wanna support you. Anyways, hope this helps. No fancy editing or anything just straight to the point! Let me know if you have any questions! #acneproneskin #skincareroutine

I use similar ingredients in my routine (niacinamide + zinc), but I thought you cannot use niacinamide with any acidic ingredients (AHA/BHA or vit c). You haven't had any problems? Your skin looks great!
you are so sweet!! Curology worked WONDERS for my skin too, and we have the same formula so I’m thinking our skin is really similar! I hit subscribe immediately :) i have combo skin as well, my acne was not cystic but I struggled with so much texture and now my skin is completely smooth, I’m just looking for something to help fade my dark spots/scars so I might have to try the drunk elephant serum.. 🤔
You look amazing! I’m currently dealing with my acne scars and hyperpigmentation. It’s so tough! But thank you for saying to keep trying! I really wanted to give up...but then I must remember to be patient too
You know I just watched your previous (old) last month, now your skin looks so much beautiful. This give me hope. Even Liah Yoo commented here. Can you give some tips for the inside? Like any vitamins or juices?
I have learned that my acne is a complication of hormones, toxins and maybe some skincare and makeup reactions. It went from mild to medium severe in about 2 yrs. I have been to a doctor and one of the best dermatologists in our area and nothing was working. It seemed to be getting worse.. so my sister bought my Proactive- (the kit of 3.) It comes with an amazing face wash, toner and repair cream. You have to do all 3 steps once in the morning, than once at night. If you don't do it twice a day, I find that it doesn't work as well. But if you do it twice a day than it has the perfect amount of power. It has helped me more than hundreds of skin experiments, several product swaps, the doctor, the dermatologist. So I ***highly recommend pro active!!!! I started for like 5 days and my skin is clearing up so much! And also my Dad who has amazing skin told me that he believes one of my acne problems is the time I wash my face at.. not washing it right after sports and excersize with soap and water. He uses and now I use *Caress daily silk soap bar! All you have to do is put your hair back in a washable headband, then take a wash cloth with warm water and rub some Caress soap bar onto the wash cloth and wash your face. It is a another great tip I so highly recommend! Ok. 1 more tip... Everyone should purchase a detoxifying face mask if you need a face mask. These three tips are bomb! 😜
I congratulate you on being able to overcome such a challenge. You are and will always be a great inspiration for everyone such as myself, who are trying to get past these stages of "uncomfortable skin features."
Though I am not able to afford the products mentioned in the video, knowing the steps to take is a huge advantage if in case I am able to obtain something similar in the future.
Thank you again, hope to see more similar content in the future. :)
Hi Hana, first of all - congratulations!! Your skin is literally GLOWING.
This may be a sensitive topic but do you know why you started breaking out? Your before pictures look a lot like my acne and I could never figure out why I broke out. I used to have a really clear skin but one day I woke up with acnes on my forehead and they just started spreading across my face like a wildfire :(
You’re the reason I got out of bed today without makeup showing my scars and all and bought some of these items. I really loved how genuine you were because it is hard to get up and wanna do anything when all you get it stares. Thank you!
I never commented on youtube before.
I dont have any problem with my skin, i just curious about your video thumbnail and girl! You are the most nicest girl ever! Like ever! How you spread positivity just made my day (or every people that watched it). Keep it up❤️ *automatic subscribe*
I'm glad I found your video. You did give me some supports to go on with the life as a girl with rosacea acne. This type of acne is not curable but at least I'm trying my best to do some efforts for my face eventhough I've gave up so much on trying, most of times. I've been trying to meet the right products for my skin for loooooong and you know how's the feeling when people pointing at your face's problems since you hit the puberty phase. Thankfully I discovered some products that maybe I can try them later. Thank you!
any skincare enthusiasts out there - i've got a question! if I don't wear face makeup (no foundie whatsoever), would i still benefit from double cleansing? I usually use micellar water and then followed by facial wash. Kept on hearing good things about double cleansing. I have combination - oily skin, I have annoying tiny bumps on my forehead, and other than that I'm pretty fine. HALP!
Thats how my skin was before I started using curology! I'd cry everyday and felt ugly :( I purchased a lot of high end products and cheap ones but none helped with my acne and at the end I gave curology a try and I don't regret every penny I've spent on my formula! I am more happy with my skin now after 4 months. The only down part is that i was left with a lot of red spots on my cheeks and my provider said they'll go away in a couple of months. I haven't get any new breakouts and now I am just looking for the perfect moisturizer and some ways to get rid of those red spots. Congratulations on finding your perfect routine! Im soo happy for you! Xoxoxo
Wow, you are such a sweet person! How have I never come across you before? (I feel like I've watched EVERY acne video on YouTube...) Thank you for sharing your routine and experience with acne. It really helps to know that there are other people out there who struggle with their skin and - even better - actually found a solution. I'm so happy for you, I hope I can heal my skin, too. <3
I've been going to my dermatologist for 2 yrs now.. he gives me the prescription and my problem gets solved then after a week I start breaking out again.. it's like this since two yrs.. I know acne is a chronic condition and occurs again .. but I want to know that this time too I'll go see a doctor and he'll give me creams and all but what should I do after that??? To stop the acne come again? Please let me know how should I *prevent* my skin from getting acne again and again .. it's just tiring.. I don't mind going for a checkup but now I want to stop this .. my doctor also doesn't tell me what should I do because I think every doctor wants that the patient can come to him/ her again n again ykwim 😔
I struggled with mild acne but it always affected me and I would always have to make up on. If you want a quick solution try Accutane in low dosage i think im on 5mg. But cleared up skin within 3 months. I hardly wear make up now. Becuase im on a very low dosage i get no side affects and I've been on it for a year an half. I tried every thing but nothing worked and wasted money time and effort it was my last solution. I wish i had not listen to other people and tried it straight away in the past. I hope this helps someone ❤. I've never felt so confident in my natural skin. I hope you find something that works.
Waow- I have never seen your channel before, but this video was in my recommendations and I'm glad I watched it. Congratulations on your triumph- it's a big deal and this video will help tons of people. All the best
The skin routine is important, but, more importantly is to eat healthy and take care of your intestines (considered as our second brain) if you heal your intestines you can heal many diseases including acne.
+Naruto Uchiha well, I've seen some really good docs who are "nutrologists" not nutritionists... talking about how bad gluten is for our body...specially for acne, so cut out the sugar, processed food, buy gluten free products and fermented drinks like kefir! That will def help
My only suggestion is when your dealing with products that are in a jar they can become contaminated very easily using your fingers even if they are just washed. Try a scooper or I use a q tip to get my products out of jars so you don’t have to worry about contamination. Our hands and finger nails are the dirtiest things on our bodies.
I was wondering if anyone in the comments can help me. I have redness on my cheeks and nose as well as blackheads, large pimples, noticeable pores and some scars. Is there any products I could use or a routine I can stick to?
if you have bad bad acne, like i used to, the key is hydration. hydrate your skin. hydration! not moisturized.
wash your face (make sure the one that doesnt strip your natural oils) and choose a toner that really hydrates and cool your skin down because congested skin are usually warm then choose a light moisturizer in the am. make sure its oil and fragrance free.
SUNSCREEN IS A MUST! NEVER FORGET THAT OKAY! you can wear makeup for sure. just make sure to always reapply your makeup or sunscreen from time to time. dont just depend on that foundation for the rest of your day! no no no. thats bad. korean people always retouched their makeup. they will choose a lightweight sunscreen and apply on top of their makeup every 4 hours or so. and then use hydrating mist everytime you feel dry.
at night, wash your face twice (remove makeup & cleanse). choose the same hydrating toner. apply your treatment. wether it is serum or cream. wait atleast 5 mins. then apply your moisturizer. make sure in the pm, your moisturizer is rich and packed with nutrients! this is the key! you could also add some oil mixed with it or just add another layer of it.
to use oil as a new layer, dont just slather it on your face. take a few drops of the oil in your palm, warms the oil with your hand and then dap it on your skin until its super soft.
try these in a month and see the difference! good luck. p/s: this what clears up my skin and actually control my breakout. i have combination to oily skin. ❤
This is the first video of yours that I watch and it’s really motivating because I’m dealing with persistent hormonal acne. I was wondering if you changed your diet as well to cure your acne? Or is it just your skincare routine? 💖
Jesus we have been the same journey. I remember months ago you uploading and talking abt ur acne when i was struggling so much in terms if self esteem and not being so angry. God so much has changed since then
thanks so much for sharing this with us!!
for anyone looking for additional help, first and foremost, look deeper into what sort of skin type you have! i thought all these years i was just combinational skin since i'd have dry flakes around acne spots, yet my skin was still oily; turns out my skin was just dehydrated and oily instead! moisture was pertinent to me gettin my skin healed up and has been making a good difference. give it a try!
i've recently picked up the 2% bha liquid from paula's choice too and already i'm seeing a difference! it's fairly cost effective also, and they have travel sized ones if you just wanna try it out~
lastly, maybe look into problems with your hormones if you get breakouts along your jawline a lot... i'd switched to taking birth control shots for about a year rather than pills, and curology had been working wonders for me until then, but then it seemingly stopped working.... it was my hormones!! now i'm tryna get my skin calmed down from that awful endeavour lollll... good luck to anyone with similar struggles!
i’m so happy i found you. i got really bad and insane hormonal acne my sophomore year of college (i’m a junior now) and it really tore me up, it was so severe and using makeup to cover it up just made it worse. it’s starting to calm down (after a lot of trial and error!) but i still have a lot of hyperpigmentation and scarring. it’s so nice to see another girl close in age to me say exactly how i feel and i know i’m not so alone anymore. your makeup routines are so simple and flawless, and i love how you accept the way your skin looks with or without makeup. thank you so much.
Im so happy for you!!! Been battling with acne and scars too. For me the key is be simple with your skincare routine. I only use 1 cleanser, 1 toner, and 1 serum and my skin is getting better and better! Dont forget to use sunscreen! 💕💪🏻🔅
You are such a sweet soul. Very informative video! Thanks so much for this and the message at the end is so thoughtful. I have just bought the kate sommerville exfolikate! Hoping it works out. Also tried the same of her new one which is more geared towards acne prone skin i think its called daily detox. Have you tried that at all? Also that green tea one you use, do you think that made a big difference? Thanks so much! your skin is glowing xxx
if you don't have a money to buy all those things that she was using,just buy toner,any kind of toner and put 1 tablet of dalacin c plus Palmolive soap..that's it!!!I'm telling u this is verry effective
