Like most people I started struggling with acne when I was a teen (thanks puberty...) however, no one ever told me that acne could follow you well into adulthood! (PUBERTY: when will you leave me alone?!) But as the years went by, my skin also became dry and irritated as I tried to heal my acne with over the counter products like "Clean n Clear" and infomercial products like "Proactive". Absolutely NOTHING worked and, in fact, these products that promised to heal my skin only made my acne worst.
With lots of research I learned about how products containing harmful ingredients such as (but not limited to) alcohol can dry out your skin and cause new acne breakouts. And surprise, surprise! Guess what the active ingredient for most of these acne products is: alcohol! So I began looking into products that were alcohol-free and gentle on our skin, and that's when I learned about an amazing skincare line by Peter Thomas Roth.
I wanted to add some much needed hydration to my completely dried out and damaged skin, so I turned to the Water Drenched Cloud Cream. This lovely cream won't clog your pores (which makes it perfect for acne sufferers) and contained hyaluronic acid which helps plump your skin and helps it retain moisture! I saw an INSTANT and significant difference the moment I applied it to my face! My poor face was thirsty and sucked this moisturizer right up! The next product I used by PTS was their Water Drenched Cloud Cream Cleanser which did NOT strip my skin or dry it out, and yet it gave my skin SUCH a deep clean! I... WAS... SHOCKED!! And after using these products I waited patiently for my skin's usual reaction to my using new products: a cute little breakout of acne. But... to my surprise... nothing happened. No breakouts, no irritation, just smooth happy skin! And over time I saw my skin became healthier and hydrated! And now that it's summer and it's hot and humid outside, I've been waiting to experience my usual summertime breakouts... but here I am: Enjoying the best skin of my life thus far!
So, my friends, if you're suffering from acne and need a nice hydrating moisturizer that won't clog your pores, perhaps you should give Peter Thomas Roth's Water Drench collection a try! What do you have to lose except for dry skin and acne?
