Clear Skin Skincare Favorites: 
Winter is a great time to focus on your skincare routine. Sure, I love trying new products. I am a beauty-blogger after all. However, when it comes to skincare, I rely on many tried-and-true long term favorites to keep my skin clear.

When I try out skincare products, I do so slowly and only add in one or two new products at a time. However, even with careful testing and good clear skin habits, I still occasionally have to deal with breakouts. So, if I am experiencing a lot of breakouts, I always go back to these clear skin favorites to get my skin back into shape and to clear it up. Some of these products rarely leave my skincare routine.

My Skin:
Before diving any further into my list of favorites, let me give you a little bit of background about my skin so you can know where I am coming from. My skin is somewhat sensitive and it leans to the oily side of the combination skin type. Most of my oiliness is in my t-zone area. My skin is generally clear. However, I am prone to clogged pores occasionally and do have the ocassional breakout as well (usually on my chin or right by my nose). I tend to gravitate towards products that are non-pore clogging and formulated for combination or oily skin. However, I have to be careful because of my sensitive skin. If I use products that are too harsh, my skin will rebound with redness and irritation bumps (no fun!). So, I especially have to be careful of exfoliating products.

Clear Skin Favorites:

Zapzyt | Acne Wash Cleanser
Zapzyt is one of my go-to brands for clear skin. I love that Zapzyt products are safe, effective, and economical. One of the stand out products in their line is the Acne Wash Cleanser. This clear gel cleanser contains 2% salicylic acid to help treat and prevent breakouts. I like to use this cleanser in the evening to give my skin a good deep clean. It rinses clean with no residue without irritating my sensitive skin. I just love it!

Zapzyt | Acne Treatment Gel:
Even with careful skincare, I do occasionally end up with the problem zit. For spot treatment, I swear by the Zapzyt Acne Treatment Gel. It contains 10% Benzoyl Peroxide to kill acne causing bacteria. In addition to spot treatment, I also apply a little tiny bit of this in the evenings (about 3-4x a week) to the areas that are prone to breakouts like my chin and near my nose (sometimes my hairline, too). If I use this too frequently, it can dry my skin. So, I try to use this just a few times a week preventatively or once a day if I am spot treating a zit.

Neutrogena | Hydro Boost Water Gel: 
When my skin is breaking out, I make sure to switch to a light weight moisturizer that I know will not break me our nor clog my pores. I really like the entire Neutrogena Hydro Boost line. I especially enjoy using the Hydro Boost Water Gel moisturizer. Even acne-prone skin needs hydration! Plus, acne products can be drying and irritating. So, it is essential that you keep a moisturizer in your skincare routine...even if you are breaking out. This product really boosts your hydration and soothes any dry areas. The key ingredient in this moisturizer is HJyaluronic Acid which holds 1,000 times its weight in water and really draws water to your skin which hydrates and plumps your skin.

L'Oreal | Pure Clay Masks:
Nothing beats a clay mask to draw out impurities from your skin. I am pretty obcessed with masks and like to do a weekly mask treatment. When my skin is breaking out, I always use a clay mask. L'Oreal has a fantastic assortment of clay masks. Right now I am especially loving this Pure Clay Mask Clear & Comfort formula. This mask's key ingredients are clay to draw out impurities and seaweed to comfort the skin. After using this, my skin feels super soft and smooth! L'Oreal has quite a wide variety of masks. So, you can really pick your mask depending on your skin's exact needs at the moment.

Dermalogica | Overnight Retinol Repair 1%:
In terms of breakout prevention, I am a big believer in Vitamin A products like Retinol (or perscription strenght if you go to a dermatologist). Retinol does amazing things for your skin. Yes, it fights things like acne but also is effective with "age prevention". One of the most powerful over-the-counter vitamin A products that I have tried is Dermalogica's Overnight Retinol Repair 1%. It is super strong. So, it comes with a buffer cream. This way, you can mix more or less of the buffer cream depending on how sensitive your skin is. I usually use about 2 parts of the retinol and 1 part buffer cream.

So, those are my go-to current favorites for Clear Skin! What are yours? I would really love to hear!

As always, thanks for reading!
