My skin is normally so great and well-behaved. It airs on the dry side many times, but luckily I am (for the most part) spared from having super oily skin which of course can lead to acne.
But sometimes -- when I work myself up into a little ball of stress and nerves - it manifests on my face! And 2 weeks ago was one of those times. I must have been all sorts of anxious and stressed out, because I was breaking out like crazy. On my jaw, on my forehead, and I will spare you the details of how clogged my nose pores were. sheesh!
Thankfully I had a little ammunition in my bag and had just received some the Dr. Lin Skincare system to test. As soon as I opened the box, my fiance swooped in and snagged the Acne Cleansing Pads ($8.99) and for a good reason! They do the work of a toner and cleanse, exfoliate and treat breakouts conveniently. Dr. Lin’s Acne Cleansing Pads are designed to wipe away excess dirt and clogged pores for continuously clear skin. We both use them daily to keep breakouts at bay.
At my first sign of breakouts I began using the Daily Cleanser ($8.99) which gets the medicine I need right into my pores. No more drastic face steams and harsh masks -- this makes treating acne simple and much less time consuming! Dr. Lin’s gentle foaming cleanser soothes, heals and reduces inflammation to treat and clear acne and the marks left behind in many ways:
- Breaks up dead skin cells to unclog pores
- Prevents new breakouts from starting
- Soothes, calms and heals inflammation
- Evens out skin tone
And thankfully, after a few mornings and evenings of adding this into my routine, my acne was minimizing rapidly!
But how could I work in a little anti-acne skincare into my normal routine to prevent breakouts in the first place? Well, Dr. Lin has just the thing -- Acne Cleansing Wipes ($8.99). These little babies are amazing for purify clogged pores and controlling breakouts. I like to keep them in my gym bag for right after a sweaty workout. Their medicated formula penetrates deep into pores while the exfoliating towelette wipes away dirt & oil.
And here's the kicker -- there is no other product on the market (sorry proactiv!) that does what Dr. Lin's does. Don't let the celebs and the large advertising budget fool you...
Dr. Lin's is:
- An easy 2-step system
- Contains microsized benzoyl peroxide
- Was developed by a dermatologist
- fades dark and red marks left by acne scars
- contains a proprietary bled of natural ingredients to fade pigmentation
