Still Got Acne Problems? Try This Little Tube of Miracles
We’ve already established that Preview Girl Belle Rodolfo has one of the most amazing poreless and glowing skin.
She looks even better in person, trust me. Belle is like a doll. Of course, we’ve been stalking her Instagram to peep her beauty secrets. One day, she posted this.
✨ O c t o b e r r o u t i n e ✨ Lol since I’m lazy to reply individually to dm’s lemme share my whole ass routine here, both AM and PM. . ☁️Three step cleanse: Bioré Cleansing Oil, Laura Mercier foam face wash, and tone all with Avène Thermal Water face mist. I’m a Bioré hoe btw! I love Japanese products. I bring Bioré wipes w me on planes and all the time and go through them like I eat them lol.. . ⚡️Targeted treatments: these go on first on diff parts of my face. The Epiduo on my t-zone to treat and prevent little breakouts (ABSOLUTE BEST, I religiously shell out 1,200 for it monthly like it‘s my phone bill), The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin is an anti-pigmentation gentle enough to use under my eyes and around the nose. It dries a bit tacky so nice as eye cream prep. It’s the only thing that worked even a bit for my dark circles!!! Celeteque Pore Tightening Serum for my cheeks especially the area near the nose bridge. Haven’t seen any changes honestly. BUT I just started using this a week ago, so can’t tell yet! I have some roughness in my cheeks RN and it’s taking a while to address them. I’m impatient. I just want balance in my skin and in LIFE. 😭. . 🌚Eye cream: Estee Lauder ANR Eye Concentrate Matrix - works SUPER well with the Alpha Arbutin altho some days maybe my eyebags are too dark for it LOL. . 🌝Moisturizer - i always rave about Embryolisse, but always sad it’s not easily available here. Luckily I don’t have to use loads of it especially in our weather. . 🌞Sunblock - as I said, I’m a Bioré hoe. This is Aqua Rich Watery Gel. This is the lightest ever sunblock I ever tried and this is my third bottle of the year!!! I know there’s another one called Watery Essence and honestly it has such a better, matte, silky finish but it has an ingredient I’m allergic to (dimethicone). I tested it on the back of my hand and the pores on my face shivered and almost broke out in fear. So that’s cancelled.... . 🔮Vesté Jade Roller - LEMME TELL YOU something about the Jade Roller. It made me so excited for my nighttime regimen — I love the de-puffing massage. Butttt I won’t say any more because I wrote about it for @previewph and you all betta read about it on preview.ph RN! 😌
We zeroed in on Epiduo and how Belle is willing to spend over P 1,000 monthly on it just like her phone bill. Mind you, beauty editors like her get a lot of makeup and skin care samples from different brands. So spending on anything means the product is worth it.
So what is Epiduo? We looked at their web site and this is what we found.
“Epiduo (adapalene and benzoyl peroxide) Gel, 0.1%/2.5% is an alternative for those who suffer from mild to moderate acne and can be used for patients as young as 9-years-old. Epiduo Gel is the only antibiotic-free topical acne treatment with a fixed dose combination of 0.1% adapalene and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. It helps clear up the breakouts you have now and helps prevent future pimples from forming. It also comes in a convenient pump, so treating breakouts can quickly become a part of your everyday routine.”
There will be a little sting and micro-peeling for a few weeks. Reminder: Always wear sunscreen.
You use Epiduo at night after cleansing. Use a pea sized amount and apply only in affected areas. Belle applies on her T-zone. Tip: Wait 20 minutes after washing your face so it’s completely dry. Doing this will reduce the stinging and flaking.
Some users have experienced some purging. Purging refers to the appearance of more pimples and blemishes, kind of like the skin cleaning itself. I personally didn’t experience this. But be patient and you’ll soon have clear skin.
