Since I've posted several videos on salicylic acid recently,
One of the number one questions ive been getting is..
if I dont recommend salicylic acid for acne, what do i recommend?
The answer is, a sensitive skincare routine.
Products designed for sensitive skin.
I recommend using basically as few products as possible on acneic skin.
Because i dont believe acne can be cured using external means
I believe treating acne from the outside usually makes things worse
I believe simplifying your routine is the way to begin to heal your acne
Stop all of your products and use only a double cleanse, a moisturizer, and a sunscreen.
You can get a benzoyl peroxide (cystic) or salicylic acid (whiteheads) spot treatment around
But dont use it obsessively
Because the whole point is...
Treating chronic breakouts through products is futile
The goal is to get rid of it at the root
What is the root cause of your acne?
This is the question you should be asking
Once you simplify your routine and heal your skin barrier,
Your skin will instantly improve
Then you can begin to dig deeper
It’s a bit of a trial and error
Experimenting with what your drawn to
Following creative inspiration
Watching the incremental improvements
Eventually eradicating it completely
Wouldn’t you rather do that than micromanage the surface level symptoms?
When you get rid of it at the root, you can live your life more freely
Rather than constantly worrying whether you’ll get a breakout or not
To me it seems like the only logical answer
What happens when you try to use external products to treat your skin?
You do the most
You use too many products, too harsh of products
You become very neurotic trying to always fight with your skin
Youre reacting to whats happening, versus taking control
Yes, its a mindset thing
I fundamentally believe acne comes from somewhere
From genetics, diet, or energy
Isolate the problem by repairing the barrier,
and then zero in on the real problem
Make sure youre on my waiting list for when my acne makeover course is reopened.
