Thrown in a sheet mask every week for good measure. Very lucky to not have to deal with breakouts post accutane, but had horrible skin and acne in my younger years. So I'm working towards dulling scars.

Current Routine:
AM: wash with water, apply jojoba oil, apply sunscreen
PM: wipe off grime with micellar water, apply curology*, apply jojoba oil

*Curology is expensive but it has done so much good for me. I have tried to dupe it with the ordinary products and it just didn't work, so I went back to it.

Have you guys watched any Sheree Idriss on yt? I really like her straightforward explanations and I'm not scared to try a retinol anymore.

EDIT: I'm going to try her recommended routine... and see if I can get off of curology. She recommends using an acid once a week (to start) and a retinol twice a week. Two drugstore options are the L'Oreal glycolic acid 10% and the L'Oreal Revitalift Pure Retinol. Curious to see how it goes

Question: How do y'all feel about cleansing?? I just wash with water and remove my makeup/grime at night with micellar water. I really feel the micellar does a good job and that the idea of double cleansing is overkill. lmk if you have a rebuttal.

New routine: AM: Water/jojoba/sunscreen // PM: Micellar/jojoba/retinol or GA (on/off throughout week).

Re cleansing I feel like if I get a lot of sweat on my face and don't rinse it off I get spots, but also I don't feel like I need something heavy to rinse it off. I guess I like a cleanser that doesn't feel like I need to moisturise immediately afterwards but also I think if it came down to it I could just use water and I wouldn't notice. Cleanser seems like the first thing to cheap out on (to me)

Working from home has made it a lot easier to do my skincare regime because i no longer shower in the office.

i double cleanse regularly but i have bigger pores so i'd rather not get em clogged. i'm also wary of my gel cleanser cleaning my sunscreen off fully (anessa is a waterproof sunscreen)

i've been regularly using retinol for 2+ years now (moved slowly from weaker 2% retinoid to 0.1% retinol and now 1% retinol), and imo it's one of the most effective parts of my skincare regimen. it's good to pair with an exfoliation method (be acid or w/e) bc you end up shedding dead skin faster
