Next, I use toner, now technically this is not a toner, but I use it in place of a toner. Benzoyl peroxide gel is my best friend for all breakouts. The brand of benzoyl peroxide gel does not really matter, there are tons of them that are the exact same, I usually pick up the generic one from whatever store I am at. They are all 1oz. and contain %10 bezoyl peroxide, here is one from Clean and Clear. If you happen to try this product, it will take a few weeks for the medicine to kick in and really start working. When I started using it, my skin dried out a ton, but I still had oily skin.
Which brings me to my next product, moisturizer. When I was living in Colorado I used the Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. I loved this moisturizer, it was light weight and did not make my skin look greasy, I would recommend this to anyone who has dry skin, or lives in a very dry climate such as Colorado. Now that I live in Florida, I use the Clean and Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer. I use a different moisturizer now because I felt like the Cetaphil one was too moisturizing, and I needed something that was more light weight. I love this moisturizer and it works very well, it is super light weight because it is a gel and not a cream or lotion.
At night, I wash my face with the Clean and Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser. This is just a basic cram cleanser, but I love the fact that it is minty, and gives my skin a slight tingle. If you do not like minty face washes, I would not recommend this one. After rinsing this off, I apply the benzoyl peroxide gel once again as a toner. I personally do not apply a moisturizer at night, unless I have been in the sun, in which case I use organic aloe-vera gel.
Now onto the once a week products!
On Monday mornings I like to use a scrub as a fresh start to my week. The one I prefer is the St. Ives Fresh Skin Scrub. This just makes my skin feel so smooth, and really gets all of the dead skin cells off.
After a long week, usually Friday nights, I use a face mask. This face mask is talked about by everyone and their mother, and its the Queen Helene Masque Mint Julep. I feel like all masks do the same thing, and it does not really matter which you use, but I just can't bring myself to try a different one.
The products that work for me, may not work for you, and vice-versa. Everyone has different skin types and needs, you just need to find the right products that work for you.
