Morning skin care routine !
So I did a nighttime skincare and I’ve now created a morning skincare routine. For some background I have combination but mainly oily skin and am slightly acne prone - mostly during my time of the month. Fragrance does not bother me. I do have extremely large pores of no fault but Mother Nature. Now that the background on ME is done - let’s talk about the skincare that may help YOU. For starters I use the Simple - Kind to Skin Foaming Facial Cleanser
Oily and acne-prone skincare routine
Skin brightening treatments
Pores face serums
Anti-aging eye creams
My current skin routine
I have been using the extra time to better maintain my skincare and here is my current routine. I have oily skin that is easily prone to acne, like wear makeup and later that day there’s a pimple somewhere on my face. (Usually my chin). I am on a budget so if anyone can recommend dupes for these I would be more than willing to try it! 🌞 Morning Routine 🌞 boscia - Clear Complexion Cleanser I really like this cuz it doesn’t strip my natural oils but I still feel like it got all the grossness off my face. My skin usually looks fresh without feeling stiff or dried out. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner I have huge pores and this stuff is just amazing to me. I have noticed that my pores do look smaller and I love the fresh smell of watermelon as opposed to the candy based smell often found. I recommend it to anyone who has oily skin but doesn’t want their skin to feel stripped Fourth Ray - Matcha Face Milk I recently added this to help my skin clear our more since matcha is supposed to be good for acne skin. I honestly am not sure if it’s done much for my skin yet cuz I’m still testing but no bad reactions so far! BIOSSANCE - BIOSSANCE Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel I have dark circles naturally and this helps lighten those circles! I literally see a difference when I am putting it on and I love it! I will probably buy again unless I can find something similar for cheaper fresh - Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer I needed a lighter moisturizer for my day routine because anything to heavy is just bad for my skin and so far I love how light this is and my skin feels amazing without feeling greasy. Just wish it was cheaper! 🌛Nighttime Routine *🌜 *This is very similar to my day routine but some differences so I won’t go into detail of the products I already mentioned fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash I recently have been trying this and don’t think I will end up buying again. It feels gentle but it doesn’t feel like it works well with my skin. I like to exfoliate 1-3 times a week depending how much my skin suffered that week but My skin didn’t feel cleaned just dry. I don’t think I’ll buy this again. I will just wash my face with my regular cleanser when I’m not exfoliating. Fourth Ray - Reveal 10% Alpha Hydroxy Acid Serum I bought at the same time as the matcha and with this I can see a difference for my skin. I tested it by putting it in my T zone because it’s the worse part and I saw my whiteheads on my chin drop significantly OLAY - Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream this is a heavier cream so I save for night use. I was using it during the day and hated how greasy it made me feel all day so I changed it to night and now it fits for my skin routine but I want to find something better to replace it when I am out.
Daytime routine week 1
Currently WFH, so I’m managing to avoid the sun aka. no sunscreen in routine. Even sitting away from windows. Call me vampire if you will 😂🧛🏻♀️ 1. I may get crap for this but I don’t usually use cleanser in morning. My skin is super sensitive and I find it flares up if I do it too much. Simply rinse with cold water (thoroughly!), and pat try with towel. 2. Sulwhasoo - Essential Balancing Emulsion I love the consistency of this product. Still working my way through a sample and considering whether I want to purchase. 3. Sulwhasoo - First Care Activating Serum 4. The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' 5. SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum 6. BIOSSANCE - BIOSSANCE Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel 7. Dr. Jart+ - Ceramidin Cream Has an interesting scent. Not bad, not great. Texture is creamy and thick as expected. Probably not the best choice for daytime if you prefer lightweight moisturisers. 8. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil Nice smooth texture. Wears slightly heavier on skin than expected, so definitely go easy with it! Probably would opt for nighttime use.
Skin so 🌼glowy & bright🌻 —> Vitamin C
👋 I’m Sarah and I’m 24 years old. I’ve recently gotten really deep in to skincare. I always liked taking care of my face but I didn’t know the products i had been using were terrible until a few months ago (cuz U kno skincare tiktok) so I revamped my skincare routine and here we are with some before and after pics of my skin. Honestly the main thing I notice is how much brighter my complexion is (Thank u Vit C). I’ll leave a list of products I use/d. I’m introducing a few new products into my routine and trying to get my skin used to retinol in the next few weeks so wish me luck 🌝 CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream I find this can be too heavy on my skin but besides that I really like it and think it’ll be great to have for winter L'ORÉAL - Revitalift Derm Intensives Vitamin C Serum this is my favorite vitamin C serum I’ve tried so far. It’s so gentle on my face but still get the job done. CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin I WISH I would have discovered this years ago BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water tbh regular micellar water but still great LA ROCHE-POSAY - Hyalu B5 Pure Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum honestly a waste of money, not that is doesn’t work but, for me, all of my products already have hyaluronic acid in them so my skin would break out in little bumps from using too much or the terrible fragrance or both probably. I do still use it sometimes but mostly bc it was $30ish. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator I just started using this a few weeks ago but I have high expectations. I use it once a week atm. So far so good. CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum I’m still trying to figure out how to incorporate this into my routine w/o my skin flaring up. I’m put it on top of my moisturizer tonight, hopefully that does the trick.
HOW TO: AT HOME “LIP INJECTION” (NO MAKEUP)
Hey everyone! I’m new here, so please excuse any mistakes in my first post! So basically, I had been weighing up getting lip fillers until I saw how to get the exact same results at home, and for a fraction of the price. *disclaimer* I blurred my acne in these photos because I’m self conscious, but the lips have not been touched!!! To achieve this look, you need this amazing serum LA ROCHE-POSAY - Hyalu B5 Pure Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum The key ingredient here is the hyaluronic acid. Apply the serum to the lips, rub in and let it dry. You will see your lips plump almost immediately. To keep this serum locked in, use a heavy balm or lipstick. In this picture, I am just wearing paw paw cream Dr. PAWPAW - Real Paw Paw Ointment I recommend using a gentle lip scrub such as LUSH - Bubblegum Lip Scrub to prime your lips and make them soft! To keep them nice and soft, make sure you moisturise them in your daily routine!! I use Avène - Skin Recovery Cream don’t forget to put sunscreen on them, too! Some balms come with sunscreen included. I have very sensitive skin, and I’ve had no problems with these products. It’s that easy! Bye bye lip injections 😊
More Drugstore Cleansers: Oily Skin
With CeraVe being sold out everywhere, it’s been hard to find a good alternative. The CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser was many people’s holy grail product which makes the constant sold out problem an issue. Here are some alternatives to use while this is all going on. Simple - Kind to Skin Foaming Facial Cleanser This is a very good foaming cleanser that rids the skin of dirt and excess oil. It had gentle cleansing agents and soothing ingredients meaning it doesn’t overly strip the skin. -Rinses cleanly without overly drying the skin. -Fragrance-free and formula is great for those with sensitive skin. OLAY - GENTLE FOAMING CLEANSER FRAGRANCE FREE This formula is fragrance-free and is ideal for all skin types. This product does well at cleansing the skin of dirt and excess oil without leaving a tight or dry feeling. -Includes aloe extract which is good for soothing skin. -Very affordable cleanser seeing as it retails for $4.99. ST. Ives - Calming Daily Cleanser Chamomile Surprisingly, a St.Ives product made it onto the list. This cleanser is definitely one of their better products because of its more gentle formula. It has gentle cleansing agents which help cleanse the skin from excess oil and dirt without drying out the skin. -The formula includes chamomile extract which is a very soothing ingredient. -The formula also contains Vitamin E, a great antioxidant, and panthenol which is a good skin-conditioning ingredient. -Fragrance-free. GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Foaming Face Wash This has a very gentle formula and the fact that it’s fragrance-free contributes to this. This product does remove makeup really well considering it has a micellar based formula. -Cleanses gently without leaving skin feeling stripped or tight. I hope this helps those who are dealing with this!
Simple night routine
My skin started breaking out so bad, I had rashes and pimples all around my face. I went to the pharmacy and asked what’s the best for sensitive and dry skin. The lady from the pharmacy recommended these products to me. Ever since I’ve been using them my skin has been amazing!Simple - Kind to Skin Foaming Facial Cleanser Simple - Hydrating Light Moisturizer Pouch
Invest in good skin care products! AsLA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 50 AOX Daily Antioxidant Face Serum SPF 50 August 06, 2020 Excellent Product Should be more than 5 Stars!! This serum + sunscreen (great bonus!!) goes on smooth and stays nice feeling all day. If my skin, especially around my eyes, starts to feel dry during the day I will lightly pat this around my lower eyes. Stays moist and smooth feeling all day. Love this product! Won't be without it.LA ROCHE-POSAY - Pigmentclar Brightening Deep Cleanser I just picked up this foaming brightening cream and so far so good. I feel with age my skin has definitely lost a lot of its luster. So I’m always happy to try creams/serums- whatever it may be- that help with uneven skin tone. With the first washing my skin already feels softer. If you like cleaning creams or any kind of creams for the matter that are sudsy, then this product is for you.LA ROCHE-POSAY - Pure Vitamin C Face Serum I LOVE this product- I use it primarily on my upper lip line area, both in the morning and evening, and at age 45 VICHY - LiftActiv Serum 10 Supreme With Hyaluronic Acid I have no visible lip lines. The skin on upper lip is very thin, like under eyes, so I decided years ago to use a great eye cream with anti-aging ingredients on the upper lip line, and found this product to do what it actually professes to do, moisturize w/important vitamin c properties, to lessen likelihood of drying. I 100% recommend!clarisonic - Mia Prima Facial Cleansing & Pore Minimizing Skincare Device I love this facial brush!!! After buying a couple of cheap facial brushes, which all broke I finally decided to invest in the best and am so glad that I did. As a SAHM it’s hard to find time for myself and using this brush is like a little spa day. It is gentle enough that I know it’s not damaging my skin but it’s strong enough because my skin feels and looks incredibly clean after I use it. I have oily skin with large pores and my nose/chin area tend to break out. It was easy to sync the facial brush to the Clarisonic app and create a personalized skin care routine. I use the MIA twice a day and it has made a huge difference. I am so excited to buy additional brushes and attachments to make my at home spa day even better. While the cost of the facial brush, additional brushes and attachments are a little high they are absolutely worth it. I am beyond excited to see what my skin looks like after using this brush for over a year. If your on the fence about this brush I highly suggest buying it, you and your skin will love it!MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea I love this spray ! I personally think it's a dupe to the tatcha spray probably even better. I have dry skin and let's just say I spray this after moisturizing/face priming literally locks in the moisture. The best quick fix :)
Battle of the Vitamin C’s!
Okay y’all, I’ve been trying to find the perfect Vitamin C to add to my routine and it’s been challenging. Since quarantine started, I’ve tried 3 different options from different brands and I’m here to share my review. I’ll start by saying that I’m not completely sold on any of these as a permanent addition so if you have any favourite Vitamin C’s comment below! I’ll add my reviews from least favourite to most... let’s go ✨ 3. THE inkey LIST - Vitamin C Serum 30ml This was my first The Inkey List purchase and while I love the price, I’m not a big fan of this formula. I found the cream (which is marketed as a serum) really thick and does not spread great on the skin. I found I had to use a lot to get the appropriate coverage or hydration that I expect for something with 30% L-Ascorbic acid. Disappointing overall 👎🏽 2. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Pure Vitamin C Face Serum I loved the texture of this serum! It was spreadable but not liquidy. It had a slight tack to it, but played really nicely with my following morning routine steps. I experienced no irritation. 3. REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream Another solid option! This was a true light cream texture that I was able to easily apply prior to my moisturizer, sunscreen and any makeup. I experienced no irritation. All that to say, I did find 2 solid options for a Vitamin C product, the only downside to both the La Roche Posay and REN products was the price of the full-size product 💵 I was able to try both of these out with the minis, but it’ll be hard to justify repurchasing the full size. I think the REN sliiiightly edges out the La Roche Posay as a favourite for this review. I do have the full size of The Inkey List tube so I’m using that up before I make a decision! If you have any thoughts of suggestions, let me know below! 💁🏽♀️
ROC- ing Eye Cream
My current eye cream is a good one. I have been using ROC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream. . Details: This is an intensive anti-wrinkle treatment that works through the night, visibly reducing the appearance of expression lines and even deep wrinkles. This exclusive combination of pure RoC Retinol and an essential mineral complex is clinically proven to visibly reduce the look of deep wrinkles while you sleep. . . 💭 This is a very interesting product but I like it. The packaging it comes in is a sensitive one. As soon as you open the top, gravity pulls the product out. It's very Lightweight and absorbs very quickly (which I love). It does have a little scent which goes away after a few seconds. A little goes a long way. You only need a dab like a DAB lol. I use this between 2- 3x a week.
Best Self correcting eye cream
I’m a 28 year old accountant and with busy season and long hours I looked like Count Dracula. I was tired, had dark purple bags under my eyes and was sleep deprived. This product totally changed my look. My dark circles and under eye wrinkles are drastically reduced and my eyes look alert and supple. I’m so happy that I stumbled upon this drug store brand as opposed to another brand because it really works. The one small 1.7oz has lasted me about 3 months. I use morning and night after I cleanse and tone. I definitely recommend . In the photos above I’m wearing less make up in the “after” photo but my eyes aren’t as wrinkly. RoC - Retinol Correxion Eye Cream
This is what I do every night😴💐💙
I used to never wash my face before bed. Not even after being in a salon all day. Gross, right? I didn’t care. My skin was clear and I looked easily five years younger than I was, even at 30. Then slowly I started to see fine lines around my eyes and then my lips and now I can sometimes see a crease or a new line on my forehead. I can see that time is starting to change my face. I don’t mind. I actually think I’m becoming more attractive as I age. But that may also be wishful thinking. Regardless, I don’t mind aging, but I really want to be graceful and smooth. Not red, puffy and bumpy. So, I needed a skin care routine and had no idea where to start. You have to start at the beginning and just wash your face. Ok. I bought some of that fancy charcoal soap for clarifying. You know the one at Whole Foods that’s black and white and smells like lemon grass? Let me tell you, put that on your body, not your face. It left me so red and burny. So I had to try it again a week later, because that’s what I do I guess. Same result equals insanity right? So I got on Sephora and started looking at face cleansers and found the Purity and it is really wonderful and ALMOST perfect. I wish it was truly an all in one product but you have to work it a bit. I don’t like using wash cloths on my face but I sometimes want something more than my fingers to work off my makeup so I like to use the Aveeno wipes first. I use full coverage foundation and mascara every day and depending on how much I’ve built it I may have up to 3 layers of mascara on so I need double duty but gentle care. The Aveeno wipes are neck in neck with the Neutrogena wipes. I like them both the same for removing most of my makeup before I wash my face with Purity and water. I use mostly warm water bordering on hot when I wash my face. I want all the makeup off and I want my pores opened and ready for the Truth Serum. That has done wonders to smooth the texture of my skin. I used to use only a little dab, and I still do if it’s going to be under my makeup but at night I am now much more liberal and I really kinda load it up just because it’s so great and I wish I could put it all over my whole body. After that I use the Glow Recipe Avocado mask with retinol on my eye area, and this is my newest addition to my routine. I just got it and I am so happy to have such a luxury eye care cream. It’s got great reviews and before and after pictures online. I love how it melts into my skin. I definitely feel like my eyes are smoother and more awake looking. After that I use the C-Rush, all over everywhere else on my face except for my eyes. I really like this selection by Ole Henrikson and I recommend it for anyone that wants to improve the general condition of their facial skin. Combined with the Truth Serum, this has really changed my skin texture and appearance for the better and I really enjoy slathering it in my face at night. I use it only at night because it just doesn’t feel right under my makeup.
GLOW RECIPE-Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask
Tatcha Ritual 🧖🏻♀️✨
If you’ve ever been interested in Japanese beauty, Tatcha is a luxury brand you definitely need to check out. In December, my skin was at an all time low. I have very dry skin, so living in southern california and working as a lifeguard doesn’t help. I had an uneven tone, patchy and flaky skin, cystic breakouts, and dark circles. Within a week of using Tatcha my face changed for the better! My face has never been more smooth and hydrated, my wrinkles went away significantly and my tone is finally starting to even out! I found that my previous face wash was over stripping my skin and my moisturizer just wasn’t up to par for my skin. I genuinely love Tatcha and I’m so happy I splurged. TATCHA - Pure One Step Camellia Oil Cleanser The Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil is a light weight oil that turns into a milky water once washed off. It’s extremely gentle on the skin and does a great job at getting off all the leftover makeup. I’ve never been a huge fan of cleansing oils but this one really stands above the rest. There’s no leftover residue, just a clean face TATCHA - The Rice Polish Foaming Enzyme Powder This facial polish has lasted me so long, I’ve had it since January 2020 and I still have a little less than half a container left. The Rice Polish is a powder that turns into a soft foamy exfoliant. you only need a dime size of it to polish your entire face and neck. It leaves your skin so soft without being too harsh on it. the best thing about it is that Tacha has multiple versions of the rice polish to fit your specific skin type! TATCHA - The Essence Plumping Skin Softener The Essence was something I hesitated buying for a while, only because of its steep price point ($95) I ended up purchasing it in Tatcha’s Dry Skin Ritual set, which has both of my favorite cleansers, The Dewy Skin Cream, and The Essence. I was so excited to try it, and i wasn’t disappointed. My skin felt so... plump! The hydration was definitely noticed and my skin is so soft! The only reason i knocked off the star was because of the price and as amazing as i think it is, I know that a couple face masks and a few serums could easily achieve the same amount of softness. The Essence also claims to help amplify the properties of other skincare items by helping the skin draw it in deeper, I don’t think it’s noticeable at first but after a while of continued use I am starting to see a difference with my other items! TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream Hands down my favorite moisturizer for my dry skin. I don’t know how else to say it! It’s a creamy, thick, moisturizer that leaves me feeling good even when I wake up, with other moisturizers i find myself reapplying throughout the day and especially when I wake up. With The Dewy Skin Cream, I don’t have to. I do admit i have to use more than the recommended pea sized amount, but it still feels amazing

The Importance of Layering Skincare in Order
In the past couple of weeks, I wasn’t seeing much of a progress in how my skin was going. Yes, my skin was cleaner but I still felt like I was mostly improvising the order of the products. That’s when I decided to research how to properly apply skincare products. From my extensive research, I discovered the right order for AM and PM skincare routines. AM: 💫 Cleanser I start my day with the OLE HENRIKSEN - Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser 💫💫 Toner I then go in with my OLE HENRIKSEN - Balancing Force Oil Control Toner I simply put some on a cotton pad and get rid of the remaining dirt and rebalance my pH. 2.5: Jade roller massage This is a step I do to help with the inflammation from remaining/new cystic acne that works amazingly. The cooling effect of the SMARTR SKIN - Jade Roller for Face with Gua Sha facial tool does wonders. 💫💫💫 Serums The serum I use in the morning is the OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Serum It smells great and helps brighten my skin. 💫💫💫💫 Eye cream For this step, I use the OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème It helps brighten under my sleep deprived eyes and has a light shimmer to it. 💫💫💫💫💫 Moisturizer I used to use the OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Brightening Double Crème which I previously gave a 5 star review to. In the long run, I saw that my skin was getting oiler when I used this moisturizer. The one I am currently using is the OLE HENRIKSEN - Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer which is light and gel like and very refreshing. 💫💫💫💫💫💫 Face oil I’ve recently received a sample of BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil and this face oil is the most exquisite and light face oil I’ve ever tried. Definitely purchasing the full size bottle. 💫💫💫💫💫💫💫 Sunscreen My sunscreen is the VICHY - Idéal Soleil Ultra-Light Face Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 which I apply consistently on my face throughout the day whether I go outside or not. PM: 💫 Cleanser I use the same cleanser as the AM. It helps take out all the dirt accumulated during the day. 💫💫 Toner Same here! I use the same toner as the AM and my face feels refreshed before going to bed. 💫💫💫 Serums Here, I go with the OLE HENRIKSEN - Invigorating Night Transformation Gel When I wake up, my face feels unbelievable. The chemical exfoliator does one hell of a trick. 💫💫💫💫 Eye cream I purchased this Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado a while back but couldn’t wear it during the day due to its thickness. I now wear it at night and it stays on all night long. 💫💫💫💫💫 Moisturizer I finish up with my moisturizer OLE HENRIKSEN - Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer This might not work for everyone but, I’m definitely seeing changes!
OLE HENRIKSEN-Balancing Force Oil Control Toner
"Your skin is 90% of your selfie. Take care of it" Let me introduce you to my holy grail skincare brand: Skinfix! @Skinfix is a brand endorsed by dermatologists as skin barrier experts and focuses on clean skincare products. I was introduced to the #Skinfix barrier+ line over a year ago when my skin took a turn for the worse. I was diagnosed with Rosacea and didn't know what was going on with my skin. It was red, bumpy, irritated, and an overall mess. I was recommended the barrier+ line and I have used it religiously for the last year and let me tell you...it has TRANSFORMED MY SKIN! What sets this skincare line apart from the rest is that it works to repair the barrier of your skin. What causes our skin's barrier to get damaged? Over-exfoliation, age, emotional stress, environmental stress, and the list goes on. Foaming oil cleanser: Don't let the name fool you it is not oily! It is easy to use, gentle, milky and cleanses my face without stripping my natural oils. It removes my makeup and leaves my face feeling so soft and hydrated. Triple Lipid-Hyaluronate Serum: This serum literally makes my skin feel like I drank 4 litres of water! The surge of hydration it gives me is like no other. It is lightweight and not greasy at all! My skin hasn't glowed this much ever! Lipid-Peptide Cream: If you want hydration without that greasy heavy feel...You need this cream in my life! It's a miracle in a bottle, to be honest. It's so hydrating that it has gotten me through the harshest of winters but light enough to continue using in the Summer months. It is fragrance-free and a staple in my skincare routine. Lipid Boost 360 Eye: Absorbs quickly into the skin. Reduces puffiness leaving my eyes feeling bright and smooth. I have also noticed that it has diminished the look of my fine lines and wrinkles as well. Redness Recovery + Antioxidant Redness Treatment Overnight Mask: This mask cools and calms my redness down immediately. It is not heavy on the skin and I've been able to stop using topical antibiotic creams that I was prescribed for my rosacea because of this mask! Highly recommend.

My routine for coming spring❤️
My skin is dry in autumn and winter, and mixed in summer. The main skin concerns are acne marks and scars. So every time I do the skin care, the most concerned is how to do well in moisturizing and how to fade acne marks. My routine usually first use cleansing cream, then toner and cream, the last essence. Following I will share my personal routine. It has been spring recently, so the skin is not so dry as the winter, so I changed my cleansing foam to the Estee lauder. The name is super-pomegranate radiant energy cleansing foam. This kind of facial cleanser is very durable, and can cover the whole face with a little squeeze at a time. Its bubble is very rich, I use it with Luna face cleanser. After foaming, gently massage the whole face with the cleanser. Then wash the water with clean water. Your skin will feel fine and smooth, even brightening up. ESTĒE LAUDER - Nutritious Super-Pomegranate Radiant Energy 2-in-1 Cleansing Foam But it should be noted that this product is especially suitable for people with oily skin. For dry skin, it is best to use it only in spring and summer. Because of its powerful cleaning effect, if it is used in the case of particularly dry skin, it may cause skin sensitivity and redness. The next step is to use SK-II facial treatment essence. I'm a big fan of this essence. I've been using it in all seasons. Although it is essence, I have always used it as lotions. After cleansing the face, pour out a little on the cotton pad, pat the skin gently, it is very easy to be absorbed by skin. It can help skin lock moisture, and can add other functional essence. SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) After using SK-II essence, I will use Guerlain abeille royale youth watery oil. This step is the key to my moisturizing. The rich glycerin ingredients in the oil make my skin very moist. Finally, I use La Mer the concentrate to solve the acne mark problem of the skin. Its function is to smooth the redness of the skin and promote the self-healing of the skin. It is more suitable for season change or acne scar removal, there is not much need to use every day. But it does a good job on fade acne marks and scars. Generally, the newly born red acne can be faded after one night's application. GUERLAIN - Bee Glow Youth Moisturizer LA MER - LA MER The Concentrate I usually use this routine all year round. The biggest difference is that I may change the parts of facial cleanser and moisturizer. But for SK-II and La Mer, I will not change. I've been doing this for about three years before making up in the morning and skin care at night.

Post Accutane Night Time Skin Care Routine
While on accutane I had a very simple skincare routine to allow the medication to do its thing. I’m 7 months post Accutane, and my face is still pimple free. Yay! My skin care concerns at this time is discoloration/dark spots and minimal scarring on one of my cheeks. In this routine I am using the Fresh Soy cleanser to cleanse. It’s so important to make sure you’re thoroughly cleansing your face so that the remaining products can properly penetrate the skin. I use esthetician Nayamka Roberts-Smith (@LABeautyologist)’s 60 second rule when cleansing. Cleansing your face with your fingers for 60 sec allows the cleanser ingredients to do their job. This method helps to soften the skin & dissolve sebum blockages a lot better. I then follow up with applying a hydrating toner (Laniege Cream Skin toner and moisturizer) to my face with my hands. Then 2-3x a week I go in with the exfoliating serum ( The Ordinary’s Mandelic Acid 10% + HA serum) to minimize texture and uneven skin tone. Mandelic acid is gentle and works great on hyperpigmentation on people with deeper skin tones. To end it all off, I use the Kate Somerville recovery cream. Cleanser - fresh - Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash Toner - LANEIGE - Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer Serum -The Ordinary - Mandelic Acid 10% + HA Moisturizer - Kate Somerville - DeliKate Recovery Cream Pro Tip: Wash your hands before washing your face!🧖🏾♀️ #CherieCreator
