I have no idea what I'm doing D8
Started getting into K-beauty in February 2018 (at the age of 29) after having seen an esthetician on and off for a couple of years. I noticed some improvements when she got me on a course of daily salicylic acid and glycolic gel (alternating with retinoid cream), so I'm continuing to experiment with acids until I find something that works well and is hopefully friendlier on my wallet.
I'm not sure if I have combo skin or just straight up oily skin, but I do know that my pores are huge, and I've been breaking out super easily since I was in middle school. Also not sure if my skin is dehydrated, but the rest of me is, so probably! Since November 2017 I've also been having a flare-up of hormonal acne along my jawline every so often.
The one thing I absolutely refuse to try is makeup, since I personally don't like the idea of hiding flaws as opposed to fixing (or at least mitigating) them.
Is your Curology prescription the new Myers-Briggs personality type? If so, mine is 0.009% tretinoin, 1% clindamycin, and 0.25% zinc pyrithione. I’ve only been using it for about a month and had to switch from every day to every other day due to tretface, so I haven’t noticed any difference in my acne yet. Hopefully that changes soon.
