This is a must have in your skin care regime. One must know how to use it to get its maximum benefits.
By the way this is non paid non sponsered review , every product bought with my own hard earned money.
So here we go, my skin type is acne prone, i have cystic acne. I was scared to use chemical exfoliation but after much research online( i am not an expert) i bought this from minimalist.
How i use it: so i use it once a week at night. after washing my face with a salycilic based face wash (neutrogena acne wash). After drying my face i apply a thick layer. Avoiding my eyes and upper lip area, let it sit for no more than 10 minutes. Then i wash with normal water. i apply a squalane oil that night and sleep. Nothing else should be applied, as it will cause irritation and might damage skin aswell. after 12 hours the next day i make sure i apply sunscreen if i am going out.
What you can use after 12 hours: a mild facewash, i use salicylic based wash and it works, niacinamide 5% not more, squalane oil, sunscreen, night cream ( i use plum night clarity gel)
Avoid these for atleast 3 days: arbutin, niacinamide more than 5%, retinol/retinoid, salicylic serum , donot scrub face.
This works for my skin, might be different on yours. If my review works for you do give it a thumbs up. Will review more from this brand and others, keep following.
