Skincare can be an incredibly fulfilling interest, but can be incredibly costly as well. We’re dazzled by literal promises of beauty, with even marketing language of brands geared towards commodifying beauty. You can buy your beauty in bottles, jars, and tubs. And, of course, with a hefty price tag. It’s easy to get caught up in sparkly, whimsical descriptions and packaging, so much so that we’re willing to dish out an extra $170 for an ounce of face cream (we’re looking at you, La Mer!) because we believe the beautifying effects will justify the cost.
As I rapidly approach my mid-30s, I’ve noticed that my skin has started to change. My once acne-prone, oily as a cheap slice of pizza skin has transformed into “only break out during that time of the month” and “wow, you have dry patches now, cool”. I’d like to say the changes have been welcome, but after dealing with oily skin my whole life, I’ve sort of been floundering to figure out my newfound skin type.
A small disclaimer: We want to point out that it’s a common practice for the skincare industry to demonize or acne-shame in an attempt to create and feed into insecurities to better promote anti-acne products. We believe that all skin is perfect as long as you feel comfortable in it, and wish you all the best in your skincare journey. If your skincare journey involves reducing acne and acne scarring, please read on for more information!
