With everyone and their mother in the pursuit of glass skin lately, people have been sharing their own skin-care routines on social media for clear, practically pore-less skin. Luckily, someone just revealed their routine for those who aren’t genetically blessed with crystal-clear skin. (Hi, like me!)
Michelle Hoang, from Houston, Texas, has oily, acne-prone skin, and she recently revealed every single step of her skin-care routine for helping fight blemishes, as well as before-and-after photos. People are so stunned by the results that her skin-clearing routine is taking over Instagram. In just a month, her skin has basically completely cleared up, and it now, it’s glowier than ever.
Hoang starts off where most skin-care routines do: Cleansing. Every morning and evening, she lathers up with Aveeno’s Clear Complexion Foaming Facial Cleanser. After that, Hoang exfoliates with Skinfood’s Wash Off Black Sugar Mask twice a week — just at night. It gently sweeps away dead skin and debris without stripping skin of hydration. (The woman behind the viral glass skin routine swears by the strawberry variety of the same scrub for giving her skin a “healthy, natural glow.”)
Then, Hoang slathers on what she calls her “favorite cream in the entire world”: the Keeva Tea Tree Oil Acne Treatment Cream. She uses this both morning and night, too. (In the morning, Hoang follows it up with the Best of Beauty award-winning BareMinerals’s Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, which has SPF 30 in it.)
On Instagram, she went on to rave about the wonders of the cream. “I cannot thank this product enough for clearing all my forehead bumps and also bumps all over my cheeks,” she wrote. “My parents love this cream, even though they don’t have acne.” Hoang added that it doesn’t dry out her skin. Instead, the cream leaves her skin supple and smooth.
At night, Hoang dabs her larger breakouts with a bit of the Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment, which is formulated with salicylic acid. Then, she puts a small circular bandage, like the Band-Aid Clear Spot Bandages on top of the blemish. Like hydrocolloid bandages, the bandage will keep you from picking at your pimple and let the treatment do its thing.

OK, that’s not too many steps to incorporate into your current skin-care routine. Four (give or take) is completely doable. Now excuse me while I add…
