It has taken me many years to learn the lesson of good skincare. I've always washed my face, and moisturized when I had the time, but I only started investing in good skincare products around 6 months ago. In high school and college, I sought out more full-coverage foundations and powders, rather than focusing on getting my skin issues under control. I long for the day when I feel truly feel comfortable running errands without a stitch of makeup on my face. However, I am convinced that if I keep taking care of my face, it will happen.
Quick info on my skin type: I have skin that is acne-prone, oily, and acne scarring on my cheeks. I also have what my first-ever doctor called "allergy eyes" where the dark circles under my eyes become more prominent in allergy season. Hot stuff, huh?

this spot treatment. Both work very well. Doing this step last is necessary so that the oil takes effect and isn't messed up with any other products. I can go to sleep and wake up with smaller and less offensive blemishes. The tea tree oil is intense and definitely requires the use of a Q-tip.
Then I go to bed, and wake up feeling and (hopefully) looking better! Do you guys only buy high end skin products or do you use a mix of high and low end like me? What are your favorite or must-have skincare products? Let me know!
