Calming Products For Your Acne-Prone Skin

I spent a lot of time taking care of my breakouts and finally got to a place where I’m not breaking out anymore! 🥳but they still left my skin looking really red and irritated. Here’s a list of products that helped me calm down and hydrate the irritation from constantly squeezing my face (which I know I shouldn’t be doing 🫢)

Rice Toner

Milky toners have done wonders for redness and calming. Use this toner with the 7 step toner method and I kid you not you’ll see your redness go down overnight!

🌼𝒦ℯ𝓎 𝒾𝓃ℊ𝓇ℯ𝒹𝒾ℯ𝓃𝓉𝓈: This got a whopping 77.78% Gaomi (rice) extract. It also has niacinamide and rice bran extract. Rice extract is known for its rich antioxidant compounds, including Vit E, ferulic acid and oryzanol. The bran on the other hand contains moisturizing polysaccharides, omega fatty acids, and a lot of nutrients. All of these work synergistically to brighten your complexion, make it look more radiant, supple and younger looking. 🌼ℱℴ𝓇𝓂𝓊𝓁𝒶𝓉𝒾ℴ𝓃: What caught my attention was its 2 distinct product densities. The first layer is watery, the other layer is more of like an emulsion. So you need to shake it first before using. 🌼𝒜𝓅𝓅𝓁𝒾𝒸𝒶𝓉𝒾ℴ𝓃: After cleansing, I take a few drops at the palm of my hand and massage them well across my face. This has a very watery milk consistency. Very lightweight and easily absorbed by my skin. 🌼𝒞ℴ𝒾𝓃: Php1200 for 150ml, which is perhaps a little pricey compared to other k-beauty toners. But if you have a room in your budget, I would say it's a worthwhile product. 🌼𝒱ℯ𝓇𝒹𝒾𝒸𝓉: I think I've found the one. This is so perfect for my oily-combo skin! I have been using this consistently for ~3weeks, day & night. What I love about this is I can layer it bec it's very lightweight and fast absorbing (I love layering my toners & essences) it didn't make my skin feel greasy at all. And you can already see the instant glow right after application! I haven't seen any significant improvement on my pimple marks though (need to use it more to see), but the overall complexion of your skin will really improve. So if you're after the instant brightening effect and you have the budget, go for it!

Advanced Calming Solution

If you’re not super into the milky consistency, here’s a watery toner that’s just as effective. It’s super lightweight, perfect for summer and mornings. Apply it 7 times at night you won’t be disappointed!

This stuff is truly amazing! I've been using it for only a week now and it's been helping to lighten up some PIE/PIH scars I've had along with any redness in my skin. I'd highly recommend it to those with sensitive skin which needs more hydration or soothing to inflamed skin as the ingredients in this helps a lot. The smell is very herbal-like (like a tea) and the texture is very watery. I like to put some in my palms and then just pat it in. The packaging is also very pretty and I love how it's biodegradable. The bottle is made out of glass and is big enough to last me for a long time which I am happy about! Overall, I'm so happy with this product and the results I have seen. It's only been a week of trying it and already it's making a small difference in the right direction. The photos of my skin attached are just a 3-day difference which is awesome and the change is subtle but there.

Perfect Whip Acne Care

A lot of breakouts happen from debris left on the face. Maybe it’s an unpopular opinion but I love the feeling of my face being squeaky clean and dried out after cleansing 🫣but hey, it helped a lot with my breakouts not returning and maybe I’m imagining it but my toners and serums seem to absorb better too!

Before diving in to this product, I honestly read a lot of reviews on a several beauty websites and even watched youtube videos. Did this cleanser live up to expectations? YES. This cleanser changed my life with its lotion-ish silky texture, slight fragrant and lightweight feel. It doesn't irritate my skin and never leaves a tight feeling upon my face. Within just a week, it already made a huge difference, considering I have an acne-prone skin. It always leaves a bright, clean and smooth feeling once it is rinsed off.

Skin Essentials Cica Care Balm 40ml

I always use this for my last layer of moisturizing. It’s a great product for moisturizing, barrier repairing and calming all in one!

This contains Rovectin’s Barrier Repair Complex TM to help restore and repair your skin barrier. It aims to soothe and protect damaged, sensitive and irritated skin which has been impacted by conditions such as hormonal breakouts and rosacea and contains a number of star ingredients including but not limited to: 💖Calamine - A pink powder that’s useful in calming irritation caused by breakouts 💖Madecassoside - one of the main active ingredients derived from Centella Asiatica, established healing and soothing properties 💖Glycerin - a great humectant that draws water from the air into our skin This doesn’t have a classic balm texture, it’s more lightweight and sits somewhere between a balm and cream. It’s pale pink and while there’s no artificial fragrance there are some extracts that give it a very sweet scent, I can’t decide if it’s fruity or floral though 🧐 I found it hard to gather my thoughts on this one because what disappointed me is also what makes it special. Ok let me explain…I like balms a lot! They’re thick, greasy, occlusive and that’s what makes them so effective for me…but…they’re definitely only for night time or for when you will be at home not seeing anyone 🤣 This isn’t like that at all! It’s lightweight and wearable and actually has quite a matte finish. So on one hand I was a bit let down that this wasn’t a ‘balmy balm’ but on the other hand I’ve discovered something new that I also like. It does calm irritation but more on the breakout front. I don’t find it does as much for dry/sensitive type irritation although it certainly doesn’t make it worse. Where does that leave my rating? I’m going to say 4/5 but if you’re looking to soothe acne irritation this could be a HG for you!

Gummy Sheet Mask Madeca Sticker

I know people have strong opinions about this product but I absolutely LOVE this. And not to stir some controversy but I use it every night. If you can get your hands on the milder Korean version of the BHA liquid, it may be much better for sensitive skin

I was kindly gifted Gummy Sheet Mask Madecassoside Sticker by @abib.global, @go.picky and @pickyrewards. Let me begin by saying that Abib's face masks are the best masks I tried so far (and I tried a good amount of them). Gummy Sheet Mask Madecassoside Sticker - I just can't get enough of Gummy sheet masks, like all of the one I tried from Abib this one feels like a second skin because it fits my face so perfectly, allowing those ingredients to absorb into my skin quicker. After this mask, my skin felt plump and very moisturized.
