Skin-Perfecting Combinations You Need Right Now

Creating flawless skin is truly a science experiment. You have to test, test and test some more. Whether you’re fighting signs of aging or can’t get past the pimple phase, there are countless formulas on the market. But what happens when you’re “blessed” with more than one skin issue?

Depending on that day or week’s skincare woes, I turn to a couple different products. When used together, they’ve proven much more effective and given me exactly the results I wanted. These skin-correcting combos could work for you, too. Give ‘em a try and let me know in the comments below!

When I have whiteheads or ready-to-pop pimples…

I grab CSI SkinBlem Blemis Drying Lotion for those really painful, deep pimples. The mixture separates in the bottle, but there’s no need to shake it up. Simply dip a cotton swab in the bottle and dab the solution on top of any pesky spots. Leave it on overnight, and you’ll wake up with much less inflammation (and no more white heads!).

When my skin is red and needs calming…

I use derma E Tea Tree and E Antiseptic Crème to soothe any red spots, blemishes, sunburns or general irritation. This goes on all over my face. It does tingle a little at first, but it’s not uncomfortable.

On top of that, I apply Andalou Naturals Beta Hydroxy Complex Recovery Cream, which is wonderful for restoring moisture after applying the antiseptic crème. The texture reminds me of aloe, because it’s very lightweight.

When I spot a new wrinkle or fine line…

I run to Dr. Brandt Needles No More, let it sink in and then apply Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Moroccan Beauty Oil to retain moisture and plumpness. It’s hard to fight acne and wrinkles at the same time, but these two products together are helping my skin stay clear, even and smooth without causing any new breakouts. I couldn’t be happier with the results!
