Skincare Routine:


  • Wake up, wash face with water and apply a small amount of Biotherm Life Plankton Elixir (Got this in a sample size, free with a purchase for some other products).
  • Afterwards, I'll apply Vichy Skin-Perfecting Velvety Cream (SPF 50).If I'm wearing makeup that day, I'll use Weleda Skin Food as a primer (some sites suggested it) and go on with a little bit of foundation.


  • When I get home I'll take my makeup off by lathering on Nature Republic Himalaya Cleansing Balm, Pink Salt and gently wiping it off with a cotton pad. I don't want to over-wash my face so I usually leave it as is for the rest of the day until I properly wash my face before bed (Usually no longer than 5 hours)
  • Then, at night, I wash my face using Bioderma Sensibio Mild Cleansing Foaming Gel and pat face dry.
  • I use Mario Badescu's Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater as a light toner, followed by the Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid 2%+B5 all over my face and once that's sinked in, I'll apply Weleda Skin Food again to boot.


    I only exfoliate twice a week, (Tuesday) once using a brush as an physical exfoliator (something similar to a Clarisonic brush) and (Thursday) the Ordinary's Lactic Acid 10% + HA as a chemical exfoliator.

    I only recently started using these products together, in an attempt to help this bumpy issue I've been having for quite a few months now. I don't know exactly when it started but it's definitely only been 2+ months since it has re-appeared and stubbornly stayed with me. I've also just bought the Ordinary's Salycylic Acid 2% since I've heard it does wonders, especially paired with the Niacinamide (which I need to get!).

    If you've any recommendations or advice, I'm willing to hear and learn more! If it helps at all, I currently live in Sweden so not all products are found here, keep in mind. I'm also sorry for the switch between and - I couldn't find some products on the US site.

    I would so, so, so appreciate any help given. (I have a more HD picture if wanted, but it's gross - imo). Am I doing something wrong? Is it an allergic reaction to something? The spots aren't itchy or anything and they don't flare up or turn red (the only redness/red spots are due to me picking the skin, I must admit I suffer from Compulsive Skin Picking - which makes this whole ordeal horrible).

    EDIT: Grammar and change of a product + Forgot to specify that I do have PCOS (policystic ovarian syndrome), and I'm taking birth control pills for it. I know it can affect the skin along the jawline, but how come it affects other parts of my face and comes and goes? I have some speculations that this is not hormonal acne.

Skin Food by Weleda is the best thing I have found! It has a unique texture (not greasy at all), but almost sticky. Then it absorbs and works for a really long time.

Almost everything I use now is cheap and over the counter. I totally feel you on this. As much as I'd love to, I simply can't shell out an arm and a leg for a product hoping it will solve my problems. To start with, you should check out the brand called The Ordinary, if you haven't already. Their products are super cheap and highly effective. They exist to "bring to market effective, more familiar technologies at honorable prices."

Here's what I use in my routine that successfully keeps my rosacea at bay:


- Bioclarity face wash - $9.95

- Cos De BAHA azelaic acid serum - $12.75

- The Ordinary's squalene oil - $6.08


- Bioclarity face wash - $9.95

- The Ordinary's squalene oil - $6.08

- Durvet ivermectin paste - $6.59

- Weleda skinfood - $11.39

Weleda skin food! link this has cured my face eczema and it works on my three-month-old baby as well.

u/1qpalzm0 · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Nivea face cream or Pond's cold cream (my favorite!) are great affordable options.

Besides that,

  • Weleda skin food is incredibly hydrating, full of essential oils, and smells amazing. It's a cult favorite.

  • Neutrogena's gel cream is naturally formulated, has a great texture, and is great for being moisturizing without being oily.

  • Aveeno Active Naturals is great for balancing out combination skin- it's really light.

  • People might recommend Burt's Bees but I just want to add that personally, I didn't find the price worth it- it's good for keeping acne at bay, but it's not super moisturizing and doesn't help get rid of acne already present. Of course, it might work really well for you, especially if you've got sensitive skin!

  • Bag Balm was used for cow udders until people co-opted it for their dry skin. Fuckin' weird, but who cares as long as it works?

  • Aquaphor is a cult favorite here in the states.

  • Kiss My Face is a great option for moisturizing on the go (although idk how you feel about spray moisturizers- they scare me).

    A random super cheap trick is to cleanse with coconut oil. It can be a great, moisturizing cleanser, but it's not for everyone. Not a moisturizer, but if you're acne-prone these are amazing, especially right after the gym. Really helps to prevent dirt and sweat from building up. I don't know what the water is like in Denmark, but I've heard of French models using this instead of tap water.

    Sucks about the CeraVe- they don't tell you how frustrating and costly taking good care of your skin will be. As always, don't hesitate to go to a dermatologist (I don't know how insurance works in Denmark)- they are fantastic with recommendations (and sometimes will give you free samples!) since it's their job. Anyway, whew! Good luck & hope this helps!

it's on amazon

and also i believe target is beginning to sell it

You could try layering hydrating essences & toners (7 skin method, hydrating toners) and hyaluronic acid serums under your moisturizer AM & PM. For a night moisturizer, you could try the CeraVe Moisturizing cream, but I don't know if it'll be enough for very dry skin.

To give you an idea of the possible steps:

  1. Wash with hydrating non-stripping gentle cleanser (Toleriane, Cetaphil, Vanicream, CeraVe hydrating cleanser)
  2. Hydrating Toner & Essence (you can layer 1 toner, and several layers of an essence, look into Kbeauty ones)
  3. Hyaluronic Acid or hydrating Serum (TO Hyaluronic acid + B5, Klairs Rich Moist serum, La Roche Posay Hyalu B5 serum, I'd give the Hada Labo hyaluronic acid lotion a try first)
  4. Moisturizer (maybe mixed with a drop or two of facial oil?)
  5. Seal with an occlusive such as Vaseline or Aquaphor at night (if you still wake up to dry skin after all the steps above)

    Maybe a hydrating mist throughout the day ?

    I used to have oily skin but my skin may have gotten dry now I'm in my late thirties and I had been feeling my face getting drier throughout the day lately. Recently I've started using the First Aid Beauty Face Moisturizer (in the pump) in the morning and CeraVe Moisturizing Cream at nights and I now wake up to moist skin that doesn't dry out throughout the day anymore. I've never done the petroleum occlusive step myself though because my skin is not that dry. Oh and I've heard good things about the Weleda Skin Food as a deeply moisturizing product too. Or you might try facial oils too, between a serum and moisturizer or mixed with the moisturizer.

    PS. One thing about hyaluronic acid lotions is you want to apply them in an environment with humidity, either the bathroom after getting out of the shower, in a climate with ambient humidity ideally or on damp skin. There may be adverse reactions to applying it on dry skin in a super dry climate, like it could dry you out even further by pulling the moisture out of your skin but if you don't live in a place that's super dry you should be fine.

I purchased the Weleda Skin Food moisturizer and it's SUPER helpful when using Tret. I'm on 0.1% (using it 3 times a week) and this moisturizer has brought my skin back to life. I was previously so flaky and tight! It's very heavy so it might freak you out at first but I found my skin absorbs VERY quickly and end up putting another layer on just to get a nice glow.

u/bigelliot · 1 pointr/running

At my house we have been using something called Skin Food from Weleda ( It's pricy but man does it smell good. It's a thicker cream than most day creams -- something you'd use to moisturize your hands, not your face -- but it "sticks" much better when doing something like running. By comparison, I use Olay's SPF15 daily face cream as my normal moisturizer, which is almost like water. The Skin Food works but it isn't what you should necessarily buy. Just find something that's non-comedogenic and probably aimed more toward hand/foot protection than facial cream. You want a physical block to protect you from the wind & cold. After runs/shower, if my skin is dry, I'll use Cetaphil cream.

Or, just go with vaseline. It will work and is dirt cheap ... it just doesn't have a nice scent and will stain your clothes (if that even matters when we're talking about your face).

It's currently $10.82 on Amazon.

Frankly, Whole Foods skincare pricing makes me angry. Everything costs 25% more at WF than it does on, even if it's "on sale" in store ... and it's the same damn company! I'm sure they'd price match themselves if you asked, but I don't want to deal with the hassle -- I'd rather just put it in my next Amazon order.

I do love this lotion though. Best hand cream ever.
