Let's Talk About Skin, Baby

Let's talk about skin, baby... Major points if you just sang that in your head because that was 100% the goal. But really, let's talk about maskne and skincare. A lot happened in the last year, you know, the global pandemic which led to the accessory of the year, the mask. And that accessory led to something I've been battling since going back to work, maskne. My skin has always been something I've had a love/dislike relationship with and since I've talked about it in the past, I'll spare you all the details there. Anyway! Last Spring my skin was the best it had been in years and I was extremely excited about that, then enter in the 9-hour mask-wearing. Initially, I was able to keep things under control a bit..  Then it took on a life of it's own. I tried a new skincare starter kit from Peter Thomas Roth to see if that would help. That dried my skin out and didn't seem to treat anything, I took everything to the absolute basics to get back to square one, I got some items from The Ordinary and saw some improvements, but my saving grace? Proactiv. That was my saving grace back in high school, and it did the trick, again! I'm at almost six weeks of using it, and it's the only thing to combat the breakouts while not over-drying my skin out. It's been a journey! Progress, not perfection.
