No really it did! And again, this isn’t a paid post.
I used to have really bad acne when I was a teenager. I also suffered from combination1 skin so I had to wash my face at least twice a day and moisturize each time. I also had to make sure I always had plenty of pimple zapper gel or cream around. For years, that was all I needed.
Travelling between Toronto and Dublin’s climates must have messed up my skin’s PH balance2 because I started breaking out like crazy. Nothing that I did seemed to get rid of them. I kept seeing these ads for Proactiv® solution3 and I decided I needed to change to a 3 step system too.
So I went out and bought some toner. I didn’t splurge; and I kept in line with the products I had already been using4. And it worked like a charm! And now, evertime I see those ads I’m so grateful I listened and switched to a 3 step system for battling pimples: wash, toner, and moisturizer. I still have to use pimple gel/cream sometimes but I’ve noticed that it seems to be more effective since I’ve started using toner.
And here I used to think it was just water.
What’s your ‘beauty/daily5 routine’ like?
