Monthly Q&A | June 2020

Hey friends! Thank you so very much for visiting my blog today! Today's post is going to be a Q&A! Thank you so much for sending in your questions. 


Q: My face is going through puberty at 47 when one side clears the other side erupt:

Adult acne is really common! Most of the time it is caused by hormones. I would recommend using a product with benzoyl peroxide at night to help kill the acne causing bacteria. Also, you can visit my post all about Adult Acne here. 

I recommend the LA ROCHE-POSAY Effaclar Duo Dual Action Acne Treatment - shop here

Q: What is the best way to unclog your pores? 

The best way to unclog your pores is by exfoliation. I recommend to exfoliate 1-2x a week!
Here are some of my favorite products to exfoliate the skin:

Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant - shop here! 

Olehenriksen Pore Balance Facial Sauna Scrub - shop here 

Q: Thoughts on hydroquinone for dark spots/recommendations for dark spot treatment?

Hydroquinone is topical ingredient that uses 'skin bleaching' to help address pigmentation. It helps to lighten the skin and helps to break down pigmented skin cells. It is very effective and works best when used with sun protection. When treating  dark spots/pigmentation, it is so very important to protect the skin from the sun because if you don't it can cause further damage!!! 

Visit my blog post: All About Sun Protection here. 

My favorite product that contains hydroquinone is: 

Paula's Choice Clinical Triple-Action Dark Spot Eraser 2% BHA Gel. Shop here!

I really enjoy using this product at night as a treatment. It helps the appearance of dark spots and also helps to refine the pores. I apply a thin layer of this on my skin most nights to help with dark spots. This used to be a holy grail product of mine, It has been reformulated and I enjoy it more because it doesn't irritate the skin as much as it used to. 

Q: What is the best moisturizer for combination skin?

I enjoy the Clinique Dramatically Different Gel, which is also oil free and light weight and helps to strengthen the skin's barrier to allow for more healthy skin. Shop here! 

I also love the Cetaphil Daily Hydrating Lotion as a fav from the Drug Store! This is awesome because it hydrates the skin without feeling greasy - a little goes a long way and I love the price! Shop here!
