Why Your Acne Products Aren’t Working

Most of my blog post comes off of the comment section and endless direct messages from Instagram. That spot treatment is in not working …Its a constant back and forth on how skin truly works. It’s not a one size fits all. Half of the time you are probably doing a bit of self-sabotage on your end.

I will admit I wasn’t the most disciplined when it came to my acne journey. I fell off the bandwagon from time to time. Am not here to pass judgement either.

But you might need to read on if you find yourself constantly on the acne roller coaster and you are trying to get off.

You’re hopping around.
You are adding a new product every week. I know and understand this feeling. You can get very irritated with not seeing the results. By changing things too often can make your skin irritated. When it comes to acne, keep it simple, use that product till is finished that’s my rule of thumb unless you are dealing with a reaction triggered by that product.
You’re doing  it  wrong

You have heard me talk about benzoyl peroxide and how I found it not beneficial for my type of acne. But maybe just maybe you are overdoing it. Using too much of that acne treatment product can cause harm than good. Benzoyl peroxide is great at decreasing the bacteria but for cell turnover not so much. AHAs, BHAs, and retinoids are a great way to speed up cell turnover. Your acne will respond better to this.

Your lifestyle habits.

I had to do a lot of adjustments in the way I was living. Having to know the type of acne you are dealing with will cut a lot of things out. My type of acne was hormonal. It didn’t do me any good in eating and drink anything that caused some type of inflammation in my body. I had to cut dairy and sugar. Listen I do drink but not as much as I did. Acne prevention is a lifestyle.

There are more things that you might not be helping your skin. No one gets good skin by not doing the work. I hope you will make some changes to your skincare routine and some lifestyle changes.
