How I Cleared my Acne & Acne Marks/Skin Care Routine | makeupbyritz

Hey guys! I’ve struggled with moderate acne and acne marks for several years but thanks to my current skin care routine the struggle has come to an end. As I mentioned in the video, there are several ways to go about trying to clear up acne but this is just what worked for me. At first, I was hesitant to put up my before photos but hey- we all should love ourselves unconditionally, flaws and all 🙂 I stayed on the regimen for just a little over a month then switched the gentle cleanser and moisturizer to products that catered to my needs/skin type better (I was working at Sephora back then and needed a stronger face wash to help take off that full face of makeup I wore everyday.) I forgot to mention that I don’t put the benzoyl peroxide on my cheeks since I rarely ever break out there. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it right? I hope this was helpful for anyone struggling with acne or acne marks. Love you guys! xoxo Ritz (As always, products mentioned are listed down below.)

    This acne guide “fito shocking plan” (Google it) will provide you clear, short and all sorts of details you`ll need. Now I know the reasons behind why I`m suffering acne at age 40+. After looking at this guide, I now have a greater concept on changing my acne solution.

    Im on week 6 of the regimen today. I have noticed incredible improvement in acne but I still have the flakiness around my mouth and chin pretty bad even after incorporating the AHA+ in. Can I expect that to slowly fade as my skin adjusts more to BP? All I wear is Physicians Formula BB powder (no liquid) over my moisturizer in the mornings and after I eat or every couple hours I will have that "puzzle" like cracked appearance. Jojoba oil mixed in during the day seems to make it look worse.

    Hey does the first aid beuaty moisturizer make your skin oily? I am thinking of buying it after reading great reviews. I am currently using cetaphil and it really hydrates my skin well but also makes it look super oily during the day. I am looking for something that is suitable for this regimen as well as something that'll not make me look like a grease ball ! Thanks!

    I used to have acne but black soap took that away for me ,however I still have the dark marks and it just feels nasty do you think it would work for me if I used those products regardless? Even though their meant for acne ?

    I'm from the uk so the is quite expensive because of shipping. So instead of ordering the whole kit I just used the BP treatment. I don't have serve acne but I have a bit and scars are also a problem. My skin is getting really really flakey. It's starting to clear but not a lot after 2 months. Do you think I should get the whole kit?

    @Jocelyne Pena idk why I can't reply to you so hopefully you see this lol. I started AHA 1.5 months-2 months after being on BP (can't remember exactly but for sure after a month) it stung for the first week then after that it wasn't too noticeable then in 3 weeks it just felt like putting on lotion. Good luck 😊

    During the 2nd month of Acne.Org I went through a horrible purging phase and now I'm finished with month 3. I get a few pinples here and there but theyre tiny and are whatever. The thing that irritates me is the hyperpigmentation the purging stage left. So I'm wondering did your skin have trouble adjusting to AHA? Or was it okay? And in what month did you put it into your routine? 🙂

    So brave to share. Thank you thank you thank you . I too am on a skin changing routine for my problematic skin. I tried BPO 2.5 only spot treating which does help but a lot of drying on some areas. I find that an oil cleanser followed by a gentle non soap cleanser definitely helps me break down all my makeup and SPF. So far some good results. I still have break outs and scarring though and Glycolic acid is on my things to try list and now knowing your success I am totally giving it a go when I can afford it! Thanks Ritz.

    Great video I definitely want to try these product now ! But what do you do once your face gets used to the benzoyl peroxide ? Just add something like the glycolytic acid?

    Wow. Your face really did improve. I would say that my acne was cured long time ago but I never did achieve the same skin texture as yours and now I wanna try the same regimen. Thanks for sharing!
