After years of struggling with my skin I finally found few products that cleared my skin almost completely.
My skin type is “normal” with oily t-zone and acne prone areas. I struggle with eczema around my mouth and sometimes on my eyelids. I get hormonal acne one week before my cycle and this routine helped me to get it under control.

I order everything on Amazon (I’ll add all links). Overall it’s cheaper than buying it in stores and I always get my products in 3-4 days.

  1. The first product is African black soap by Dudu-Osun ( )
    I use it twice a day am and pm
    It cleared my skin incredibly fast and I could see a difference in less than one week
    Your skin might feel tight after using but the next products I’ll share will help with that
  2. After soap I use Neutrogena Ultra SHEER SPF ( )
    It’s very important to protect your skin everyday
    I use it as daily moisturiser and spf in one
    Doesn’t break me out and it soaks in very fast
  3. On day when I want more moisture I use Jojoba oil ( )
    It locks in moisture in the skin
    It’s light on the skin and heals acne scars
    I prefer to apply this before sleep because I’ll make your skin shiny
  4. Another incredibly important products is Tea tree oil ( )
    I mix few drops with my moisturiser when I feel like my skin is getting little bit worse
    Don’t use it very often because it could make your skin sensitive
  5. Last step is Indian healing clay mask ( )
    I apply this mask once a week mixed with apple cider vinegar
    Leave it for 10 minutes only because I have sensitive skin
    Take it off with soaked towel in warm water
  6. Last product I’d suggest is Face roller ( )
    This step is optional but I found it makes my products soak into my skin like a dream
    Apply your moisturiser and than massage your face with face roller
    It helps with blood circulation and makes your products go into deeper layers of your skin
    I’d suggest to keep roller in fridge

This routine helped to clear my skin in around three weeks. Sometimes I still get some small pimples but these products help me heal them very fast.

I hope this helps someone and if you purchase any of these products let me know how you like them in my DMs.
Good luck and don’t give up on your skin.

it all depends on what your skin is like...If you have good skin just dab a little concealer on blemishes or undereye circles w/a concealer brush. Tinted moisturizer is good if you have dry skin or in winter time, just apply that w/ur hands. Foundation-use a sponge (i recommend foundation only if you have bad skin, uneven skin, or are older). Bronzer-using a bigger brush (blush brush usually) you can do a few things. If you want a sun-kissed look, apply it to your sheeks, temples, nose, chin (lightly of course). I prefer to use mine more as contouring so I apply it to the hollows of my cheeks, my temples & underneath my chin. The best anti shine powder is the Neutrogena kind. it's a lil expensive (9-12$) but it works well. The neutrogena bronzer is very good, too, esp if you're on the lighter side. Have you thought about using a pressed powder like MAC's? That's my personal fave b/c it 's not heavy, but provides a nice light coverage.

Your skin looks amazing.  I do love all of the products you listed, esp the jojoba oil and African black soap.  I need to start using my clay mask and apple cider vinegar more often.  Personally, I drink tea a LOT (I get obsessive) and sometimes it makes me break out so I have to balance it with drinking more water which I'm sometimes bad abt.  I haven't jumped on the face roller trend yet.
