5 Easy Ways to Clear Skin #AfterDifferinJourney #ad.jpg

I have had acne off and on since I was a teenager. Even as an adult, I have not been able to have a 100% clear face. However, I have found that skincare doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming. Here are a few simple and easy-to-remember ways to clearer and more radiant skin.

1. Clean Up Your Diet

There’s no doubt about it, you are what you eat. Your skin naturally becomes more radiant and clear when you’re consuming foods that are natural, healthy, and full of vitamins and minerals. Foods and drinks that are high in antioxidants can have positive effect on the skin. Fill your plate with the colors of the rainbow: fruits, veggies, foods high in omega-3s, and hydrate with a glass of refreshing water.

2. Wash Your Face at Night and in the Morning


This one goes without saying, but sometimes it can be easy to forget to wash your face at night when you’re tired out and just ready to crash. If that’s the case, have a Facial Care Kit at your bedside so that you don’t have any excuses. Make it easy!

Depending on your skin, you may want to change up your washing method in the morning. If you do a deep clean of your face at night, then a more gentle approach in the morning is best so that you don’t dry out your skin.

3. Use Differin® Gel at Night


I started using Differin® Gel after washing my face in the evenings. I apply it over my whole face; it’s not a spot treatment. You need to apply a thin layer all over your face, once a day, every day. I simply added Differin® Gel to my daily routine of cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing. Since using Differin® Gel, I have noticed less acne and a clearer look to my face.

It’s so hard to show the difference in a photo, but I think my skin is more radiant and has been consistently clear. Spots and discoloration, due to overexposure to the sun are still there, so you have to try to look past them! I’m happy to not have to deal with acne breakouts anymore!

Differin® Gel is the first and only prescription-strength retinoid available over-the-counter. It helps clear the skin and prevent acne. It’s the latest advancement in the OTC acne category in 30 years. It prevents breakouts deep in the pores before they begin and, as a result, restores the skin’s texture and tone.

I found Differin® Gel in the beauty section at Target, specifically in the aisle with facial care/skincare solutions.

I purchased Differin® Gel 45g, Cetaphil® Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15, and Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths.

Please use caution when using Differin® Gel with more than one acne treatment or glycolic acid product because this could lead to irritation.

4. Exfoliate

Part of my daily morning routine is to exfoliate my face using a gentle clarifying lotion; you can also use a facial scrub. This process removes dead skin cells making the skin more radiant. I exfoliate after washing my face with a gentle cleanser. You wouldn’t believe the amount of filth that still comes off of my skin, even after a good cleansing! This process helps the skin remain clear. I make sure to follow it up with a moisturizer after using Differin® Gel.

5. Always, Always, ALWAYS Use Sunscreen

I have learned this lesson the hard way. As a teenager, I disregarded the advice to wear sunscreen thinking that it wasn’t something I needed to worry about. I just wanted a really, really good tan. This lack of wisdom has turned into spots on my skin. Discolored spots cover my nose and random spots have begun to appear across my face. Needless to say, I am a lot more careful about applying sunscreen these days. Hopefully, these tips can help both of us prevent anymore additional damage to our skin!
