I’ve been acne-free for years now due to a very strict skincare regimen that works extremely well for my skin. But alas, stressful situations (like moving and packing and unpacking and pms-ing grumble grumble) make pesky zits pop up.
I’ve been struggling with problem pimples around my chin during this move to Chicago. Let’s face it, I am human and my skin isn’t perfect. It is probably a combination of stress, not sticking to my routine, and eating badly (since I just unpacked my kitchen this weekend I am hoping that changes!)
I recently added Zapzyt into my skincare routine to try and knock out the pesky buggers, and it fits flawlessly into my daily regimen. Here’s my current skincare routine with the new Zapzyt cream added in.
1.Cleansing oil. I use the Biossance cleansing oil on dry skin to get off all my make up, including mascara.
2. Face Wash. Next I use my favorite exfoliating face wash by SkinMedica. It is gentle enough to use every day and does a fantastic job of cleansing my skin. I’m near the end of my tube which is why it looks kind of bent in the picture.
3. Retin A. If you’re not using some kind of retinol, then you need to. My dermatologist prescribes it, so just ask yours next time you see them if you are a good candidate. I could honestly tell a difference in my skin after just 3 days of using it. My skin was softer, smoother, and I had less breakouts.
4. Zapzyt acne zapping gel. I dab a small amount on any problem areas. The 10% benzoyl peroxide gel reduces inflammation and makes my pimples less visible in a day. I like to use it at night and in the morning. It is also really nice that it comes in a screw-top tube so I can throw it in my purse and travel bag for reapplication on the go.
5. Sunscreen. During the daytime, I use a sunscreen. Maelove is my current favorite, because it is gentle and doesn’t clog my pores.
It is really easy to add a pimple spot treatment into my routine, and I’m happy I have a good one in my arsenal for when pms or stress pimples arise. You can pick up some Zapzyt at Walmart for under $6. 🙂
My favorite look from last week was Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots!
I love Jennie’s sleek black outfit with the cute ruffle sleeves. Jennie’s blog is always full of beautiful outfit inspiration! She has a way of making everything she wears look polished and sophisticated.
