Hey guys! I know I said I was going to put out a article like last week, but I got really busy and other things came up. Anyways, I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite skin care products that I've used, what I thought about them, and how well they've worked. Personally, I've never had bad acne barely any ,but occasionally I may get some, which for some reason it's mainly on my nose area. All of these products have worked really good for me, so if you're looking for good products to use, then here are some! ;)

#1 Clean and Clear Morning burst facial cleaner

I remember a couple years back I'd almost always use this, and it's always worked pretty well. It also smells pretty good, so you don't have to worry about any kind of harsh smells. For my type of skin, I have a more oily type almost in the middle and then on some days it may be more dry. So, if you do have oily skin, this won't make it oily feeling afterwards, nor will it make it feel dried out. It just makes your face feel nice and clean. Price: $6.79

#2 Nuetrogena oil-free acne wash
I'm currently using this right now and I'd DEFINITELY recommend this one. It's called "Oil- free acne wash pink grapefruit foaming scrub". And of course, it smells like grapefruit haha, so again there's no harsh smell. I started using this over the summer because I broke out maybe from something I ate, but my face was red and felt bumpy, and it was uncomfortable. I went out and bought this, and pretty much 95% of it was gone in 3 days. It's really good for a quick minor fix in my opinion. It's not oily and doesn't dry out your skin. Price: $8.99-11.53

#3 Ponds Dry Skin Cream/ Nourishing Moisturizer
This is my favorite facial moisturizer that I've used so far. I've been using it for little over and year now, and still gives me great results. It's inexpensive and you could probably find it anywhere. It also last a REALLY long time, especially for the small container it comes in I've only used two small bottles for the past year. It smells a lot like lotion and also applies like lotion, so when you put it on, it leaves your skin feeling so soft and smooth.
I've also heard this helps prevent wrinkles which made me like it even more haha Price: $7.37 for large $3.50 for small

#4 Clean and Clear Dual Action
Also, another moisturizer I'd recommend. If you have a oily skin type, this is a great moisturizer to use. It makes your skin feel soft while containing acne-fighting ingredients, preventing breakouts. I've also had good results like this as well, and all you have to do is apply a thin layer in the morning and at night. If you need/want to apply more throughout the day you can.
Price: $ 6.99

#5 L'Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara
This isn't really skin care related, but I wanted to include and mention it anyways. Storytime So basically I was scrolling through Instagram and I saw this girl, and she had really long lashes. For a second, I thought she probaley had fake lashes or some natural looking extensions, and so did a lot of people. She finally told everyone that she used this mascara, so I went out and bought it typical me i guess. Ever since I got it, It works AMAZING. It makes my lashed look super long. The only "complaint" I would have about it, is that it doesn't make them look as thick, so it makes them looks thinner. But if what you mainly want is length, go for this.
Price:$10.59 (sorry for rambling so much lol)

Tips

Here are some tips that might be helpful to you even you have bad or minor acne, acne scaring, dry, oily skin, or just in general.

Develop a skin care routine
I think a great habit to have is a skin care routine. It will help you be more organized and your skin will thank you later

Never use a bar a soap on your face
Because your facial skin is thin and delicate, regular bar soap could be damaging, let alone it could dry out your skin.

Use toners
Toners are applied before moisturizer and are used for "toning out" the skin and also can clean out any dirt and grim. This is optional but it would help with acne prone and oily skin types.

Take a walk, get some fresh air
A important part in keep your skin healthy is your mental health. A lot of people wouldn't think it could interfere with your skin, but it sure can. Most people when they get stressed, they get those "stress bumps". Sometimes we just need to take a breath, relax, and just take a walk alone and get some fresh air.

Have a good sleeping schedule
I'm pretty sure we're all guilty of staying up late, i sure do haha. Pick a time to go to bed every night and make it a pattern. It's always good to have that balance and to wake up with energy.

Make sure you take off all your makeup before going to bed
It really is important to make sure you take of ALL your makeup before you go to bed. I know from time to time I may forgot or I'm just too lazy to take it off. If you dont take off your makeup, whether your only wearing one product, or many, MAKE SURE YOU REMOVE IT. If you don't you could clog up your pores, making your skin oily which could later cause skin problems, such as acne. It can all be avoided by just making sure it's completely gone and washed away afterwards.

Eat healthy foods
Food is also a very important part in taking care of your skin. I know not everyone will get bad skin from eating junk food, but many people do. If you do have acne or other skin problems, knocking out junk foods, high amounts of salt, fast-foods, and grease will help out a lot. I'm not saying never eat junk/unhealthy foods ever again, but limit yourself every once in a while, just do it in moderation.

WATER, WATER, WATER
Yes, I'm sure this is very obviously and people will tell you this literally all the time but it really is important. It has tons and tons of benefits and your skin is one of them. I could go on about everything it will do for your skin, but that would be a long list. So drink up! even if you'll have to use the bathroom every ten minutes your skin will appreciate you and it will be worth it.
