In today’s article, i’m going to talk about my skincare routine that I have been doing since mid-July (2017). A routine for combination skin with acne. I started this routine to get rid of my acne scars. But it also helped me to have less oily skin and better hydration (and super glowy !). So i’m gonna share all my secrets with you. Let’s go !!!
This routine will be perfect if you want to opt for more natural and more gentle products for your skin. A routine for combination skin with acne. (I do this routine in the morning and evening, the only thing that differs is the oil that I apply, you’ll see…). We tend to want to “strip” the skin when we have acne. Use aggressive products. While I’ve noticed that a simple, gentle and natural routine was way more effective for a clearer and beautiful skin !
1st step :
I wash my face with my konjac sponge, i wet her and rub my face with it. I like it a lot because it can replace a cleanser and especially because it’s soft while cleaning the skin pretty well. So that’s perfect for a combination/acne skin routine. This one is a new one that i bought at Monoprix (a french supermarket, but i’m sure you’ll easily find one online or near your house) (this one is from Konjac Sponge Company). But I prefered “Aroma-Zone” one, cause tha sponge is cheaper and the material is better (it is only composed of plant fibers, unlike some of the market, so be careful!)
2nd step :
To remove the limescale from my skin after washing my face with water, I “pshiit” some rose water that I set in and wipe with a cotton. Limescale makes my skin dry. Try to take one that don’t contains lots of alcohol (or not at all) !
Step 3 :
I apply a mixture of oil that moisturizes me (I talk about it with more detail here, click if it interests you !). These oils, in addition to helping me effectively fight my acne scars, and are very moisturizing. I’ve always been scared to put moisturizer on my acne and didn’t feel comfortable with it on my skin, but i really love those oils. And I think that it’s essential for a acne routine. Before my skin had dry patches areas of drought (it looks like i’m doing a commercial, but nothing is sponsored here !). Now, I don’t have those dry patches any more. And a little must, these oils make your skin looks glowy (#NaturalHighlight you know haha).
4th step :
tea tree !!!! My fav product against pimples. It is an essential oil to apply locally (be careful it is strong and can dry your skin a little). I’ve tested so many things against pimples, and this is the method that works best (for me). Some do not like the smell, but it personally it doesn’t bother me.

At the moment I don’t wear makeup. That’s why I don’t show you makeup remover in this article. But you can use an oil (nigelle, coconut…) it works very well. I just made an order for several products, at “Bazaar bio” and at Caudalie. To test a new routine. I’ll do an article to keep you informed, but you can follow me on my social medias, I’ll tell you everything !
I hope that my acne combination skin routine will help you.
Tell me if you want others article like this (because I personally loooove !).
