Hey guys! If you’re looking for an easy skincare routine to start off your fungal acne journey, look no further! Here are the accessible & affordable products I’m currently using- All the fun of your old routine with safe ingredients!
Step 1: Cleansing
While a double cleanse is not necessary at all, I enjoy it because it gets all my makeup off and still cleans my skin.
For makeup removal, I LOVE
POND’S Cold Cream. **UPDATE 8/2020 – I now use Albolene instead of Pond’s Cold Cream.** It’s retro and still around for a reason, it works! Just massage onto skin and remove with a washcloth. Makeup be gone!
For eye makeup removal (for stubborn mascara)- Garnier SkinActive Micellar, WATERPROOF. Note that only the blue packaging of this brand is FUNGAL ACNE SAFE. Or, for $$, I can’t say enough amazing things about Bioderma Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water. This is the most gentle and incredible formula. I will probably NEVER use anything else.
For cleansing of the skin: Bioderma Sébium Cleansing and Makeup Removing Foaming Gel. This jumbo bottle will see you through for a long while. It’s gentle, foam very lightly, and does a nice/gentle job of cleansing your skin.

Alright, remember that right now, we’re keeping it BASIC. So, were going straight from cleansing to moisturizing. Serums for another day, okay?
Step 2: Moisturizing
It’s important to lock in moisture so your skin can heal itself even better! For that, I love to use a Hyaluronic Acid post cleansing. With your skin still wet (don’t dry it after you rinse your cleanser), squeeze a few drops of The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 onto your face/neck/chest and massage into skin.
LOCK IN THE MOISTURE with:
La Roche Posay Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer. **UPDATE 8/2020 – This La Roche Posay formula is NOT fungal-acne safe; I now use CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, FAB Coconut Water Moisturizer, or Bioderma Hydrabo Gel Creme Moisturizer.** This stuff is a little $$. I wasn’t blown away at first- but then I gave it another go, and realized it was the right balance for me. It’s medium weight works well for every day use.
SEAL THE DEAL with Kissable LIPS? For this or severely dehydrated areas of the skin, simply slick on a bit of Vaseline. I swear by this- mainly b/c there are hardly any Fungal Friendly lip balms- and Petroleum Jelly is the safe ingredient I can’t live without!!
