Achieve Fresh, Supple, and Hydrated Skin in 2 Weeks
If you want to step up your skincare game, all you’ll be needing to add to your skincare routine are 3 essential products: a toner, a mist, and a mask. As I lay on my bed scrolling through Instagram 3 weeks ago, I stumbled upon a post from a skincare brand called Fresh. It’s well-known for numerous skincare products, however, I have never really tried any of their products. Since self-care has been a top priority for me since quarantine started, I thought of buying 3 products that are not part of my existing skincare routine. I purchased the following products from Fresh: 1. Kombucha Antioxidant Facial Treatment Essence 2. Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Face Mist 3. Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask These products changed the game for me as I was able to see amazing changes to my skin in just 2 weeks! The toner, Kombucha Antioxidant Facial Treatment Essence, is one of Fresh’s best-selling products. I apply it after I rinse my face with facial wash. What amazed me about this product is that it protects skin from digital light as it increases smoothness, luminosity, and suppleness. If you want to know its consistency, it’s a liquid treatment that also gives protection from indoor and outdoor pollution. It also lessened the look of pores and fine lines around the areas of my eyes. It highly hydrates and preps my skin on a daily, and it doesn’t give any interference when I apply on makeup. fresh - Kombucha Antioxidant Facial Treatment Essence After I apply on the toner, I would apply my serum and moisturizer then spritz on the Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Face Mist all over my face and neck. I use this ultrafine cooling citrus-scented mist as a primer, makeup-setting spray, and a hydrating skin refresher! It is enriched with a fruit complex of vitamins C, E, and B5, lemon and orange extracts, and minerals in which all protects against free radicals for a natural dewy glow. fresh - Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Face Mist I use the Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask for days when my skin needs a little bit more of TLC! It’s perfect because it addresses my dehydrated skin-tuation as it delivers intense hydration overnight for supple, dewy glowy skin. I love how it drenches my skin with moisture when I use it! I use it after I cleanse and apply toner at night. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask I highly recommend you guys to add these products to your skincare routine! I promise they won’t disappoint especially if you have dry, sensitive skin. ❤️

Recharge Your Skin as You Sleep!
I’m 23 years old, who recently has been experiencing so many skin problems ever since the pandemic started—from acne breakouts to intense dryness, I have been getting a taste of what they are all like on my skin and it has been taking a toll on me! For someone who has dry and sensitive skin, I have always been the type who goes for hydrating products. But with my current simple 4-step skincare routine, I have been noticing still so much dryness around my eyes and acne appearance on my cheeks as the weeks go by that we’re all quarantined, that’s why I tried the My Clarins RE-CHARGE Relaxing Sleep Mask. I have been using this mask for two weeks now and all I can say is WOW. I am literally in awe with how this product has improved my skin in just two weeks! After each use, it gives my skin a soothing feeling and a glowy complexion. When I did more research as to how my skin has becoming effectively glowy and less patchy, apparently, the mask is a plant-based product that is highly packed with acerola seed, fig, and huang qi extracts which all help in detoxing and hydrating the skin. Here’s what I learned about each active ingredient: 1. Acerola Seed is highly helpful in treating skin blemishes, enhancing skin elasticity, and supporting digestive issues. 2. Fig as an antioxidant ingredient has also been shown to enhance skin's hydration by preventing water loss from the skin's uppermost layers. Moreover, Fig can visibly improve skin color which reduces dark spots! 3. Huang Qi Extract, on the other hand, is known for its skin reinforcing and anti-inflammatory properties. I use this mask two times a week, usually during weekends, before I go to sleep. I go about my usual skincare routine and then go ahead by gently and evenly massaging the mask onto my skin and even on my neck. One thing I hate with most cream overnight products is that they give my skin this icky, weird residue that transfers to my pillowcase which leaves an awful stain mark which leaves me into changing my pillowcase every after use—hassle, right? However, what I love about this sleeping mask is that it does not only give my skin the needed detox and hydration it needs, but it also leaves no sticky residue even when the product’s texture is creamy! Do I recommend this sleeping mask? 100% yes! If you are looking for an extra hydration boost for your skin, this is the product for you! It is really perfect for times whenever I feel a little more stressed out than usual because it helps not only my skin but my wellbeing as well!

3 Skincare Must-Haves: Summer Edit
Have you been experiencing changes on your skin since summer started? Yes? Well, same here! My skin feels drier than usual and it’s the worst feeling ever! On top of that, the heat just makes things so unbearable and it gives my skin the worst case of breakouts. Since I’m the type of gal who researches ASAP on how to solve problems like this, I came across a skincare brand called Clarins. I was so intrigued with the brand because it had so much great reviews online and so I thought, why not try their products, right? What also captured my attention with Clarins is their product innovation and claims wherein it is stated in their website that their “pioneering formulas are continually being reinvented as plant science and technology advance—a process known as Permanent Innovation.” I mean, how cool is that?! Clarins is not the type of brand who plainly puts out products for the sake of just providing, what they do is as they progress as a company, they make sure all products are up to date which is amazing in insightful. So after learning a bunch of stuff about the brand, I was eager to try some of the products out. I bought 5 products from Clarins, but I’ll be focusing on my top 3 summer must-haves: 1. Clarins RE-BOOST Refreshing Hydrating Cream CLARINS - RE-BOOST Refreshing Hydrating Cream This cream-gel moisturizer is my current go-to this summer. It’s perfect because it suits my skin type and it is infused with a healthy cocktail of fruit extracts to keep skin looking healthy, glowing, and hydrated! I apply it every morning on my face and neck. 2. Clarins Sunscreen for Face Wrinkle Control Cream SPF 50 CLARINS - Sunscreen for Face Wrinkle Control Cream SPF 50 Of course, since it’s summer, we need sun protection more than ever! This sunscreen from Clarins is such a huge life saver as it has SPF 50 – yes, you read that right, 50! I love how it’s lightweight and not heavy on my face. It also goes well with makeup application. 3. Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Cooling Gel CLARINS - Hydra-Essentiel Cooling Gel I interchange this cooling gel with the hydrating cream from time to time especially during times when it’s hot out. This moisturizer restored radiance to my oh-so-ever dry skin, while promoting a shine-free complexion. This product has Organic Leaf of Life extract—a succulent plant that enhances the skin’s ability to retain proper moisture which leaves skin fresh, supple, and hydrated. I use this even at night as well before I go to bed! I hope this post serves as a helpful insight to people who are in need of a new skincare summer routine.

Skincare Routine for All Ages Using 3 Products
Nowadays, we can be presented with too much information on different topics about skincare. I know, it can get too overwhelming, and I get that! That’s why I am super thankful to skin-caring makeup brand, Happy Skin Cosmetics, for creating a skincare line that addresses oily and dry skin-types. With their anti-aging skincare line, I was able to narrow down my skincare routine with just 3 products: 1. HappySkinBeautyHydratingFacialWash 2. HappySkinBeautyTimeReversingSerum 3. HappySkinBeautyRegeneratingMoisturizer I have a normal to dry skin-type and would get acne from time to time. When the brand launched this back in 2017, I was so excited to try it out because of how they were able to narrow down a skincare routine with just 3 products. So how is the step-by-step process of this, you ask? I start by washing my face with the Hydrating Facial Wash. Upon my first use, I still remember how shocked I was after patting my face dry because it instantly gave my face a smooth and supple feeling! After cleansing, I apply the Time Reversing Serum. This serum is super lightweight but still gives the moisture my skin needs. It even has Umbrella Pine Extract which protects the skin by generating powerful antioxidants, and Fission technology that helps condition skin and improve skin dullness. It also has Chardonnay Extract that effectively removes dead skin cells and reveal brighter skin with frequent use. After applying the serum, I finish off my skincare routine with the Regenerating Moisturizer. This moisturizer gives a long-lasting hydration and it is super compatible with makeup. I love how this product has Citrus Jabara Extract which gives anti- oxidation for physical protection against free-radicals, and collagen production. Same with the serum, it has Fission technology and Chardonnay Extract. Happy Skin offers so many skin-caring products and if you haven’t tried it, I promise you that the products offered are game changers in both the skincare and cosmetics industries! The brand does worldwide shipping at happyskincosmetics.com—you’re welcome. 😉
How I Get Rid of Pimple Marks in 3 Weeks!
I started having acne breakouts back in October 2019 and I had no idea what was causing it. Pimples and dark spots were always there for about 6 to 7 months, I had no idea what products to use so basically I just lived with it, hoping they will all magically disappear one day. Before I get into sharing with you guys how I got rid some the dark spots and actual acne as seen on the images on this post, let me give a back story—I grew up with 0 skin problems. Yes, you read that right, I didn’t go through that awkward teenage phase. Thus, I grew up having no knowledge about skincare. It all started back in 2017 when I visited Seoul Korea during winter time—I did not have any skincare routine, and I would literally just wash my face with the Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser and that’s about it. I literally had no idea which moisturizer is good for my skin, even more so what serums are for, or even what face mask would suit my skin type. After 2 months of getting back from Korea, my skin suddenly started to feel dry, and that’s also when I started getting acne from time to time. I realized from there on that my skin type is normal to dry. Given that huge self-skin revelation, I started simple by incorporating the Nivea Soft Moisturizing Crème to my skincare routine and let me tell you that I have been using it daily, every day and night ever since! I promise you that it is lightweight and super moisturizing on the skin, and it won’t mess up with your makeup throughout the day. Every now and then, I have been experimenting with other skincare products but I keep on ending up with sticking to my simple 2-step skincare routine. Fast forward to what has been happening to my skin lately, I realized that I had to try and look for something that would really work for me. After doing proper research and watching endless YouTube reviews, I finally found 3 products that worked best for my skin problems: 1. Nivea MicellAIR Skin Breathe Acne Clear Micellar Water 3-in-1 Caring Cleanser 2. Hada Labo Goko Jyun Hydrating Lotion 3. Snail Truecica Miracle Repair Serum I start off by cleansing my face with Cetaphil, pat my skin dry, then pour the Nivea Micellar Water onto a clean cotton pad and gently wipe it on my face. I usually consume 2-3 pads of cotton to make sure I get rid of all the excess dirt and makeup residue on my skin. After this step, I apply the Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion with the use of my finger tips to the drier areas of my skin and then let it dry for a few seconds before I apply the Snail Truecia Miracle Repair Serum on areas where I have dark spots. I finish off my skincare routine with the Nivea moisturizer and apply it all over my face. After adding these 3 products to my skincare routine, I could definitely say that I had way less acne appearing on my skin, and that my dark spots are now getting lighter. Would I recommend these to anyone? 100% yes!
