I have being battling with my skin for a long time now. I am unsure if I can blame it all on the PhD, but regardless blemishes, pimples, and dry skin is the norm for me. I have recently started using the Ordinary Skincare products and have really noticed a difference!
I use the Ordinary makeup which I love, but expanded my collection with some syrups, cleanser, and masks. It is extremely affordable, like genuinely affordable! I got all these products for ~$70Aus.
It can be a little overwhelming to know which products to get as there are a lot, but I find the Adore Beauty website explains them well.
I personally love the 100% plant based Squalene, so good for hydration!
