Anti-Aging Tips for Your 20s💁🏻♀️
Dermatologists actually recommended that it would be best to actually start using anti-aging products in your 20s. What should I be doing for my skin in my 20’s? Here are some recommendations and products that I found really helpful for me as well as some skin care tips for aging prevention in your 20s, I am 26, used to be combination oil, currently is combination dry. Sensitive during Autumn and Winter. I honestly just started to use anti-aging products last year and already feel like i should start earlier. Anti-aging product can help us to prevent signs of aging First thing we should do in 20s, is to use something active. Such as glycolic or retinol. Topicals like glycolic and retinol can help the appearance of fine lines, at the same time, also help boost collagen and reduce signs of premature aging, such as creepiness, age spots, and fine lines. Retinol is safe to use for both men or women in their 20s to help turn over those cells a little bit faster while minimizing fine lines and pigmentation. It is also recommended to use chemical peels periodically. Chemical peel normally works to slough off that top layer of dead cells and basically help the texture tone of the skin. Next recommendation is to use a vitamin C serum. Vitamin C serum is a great antioxidant. It is a natural stuff protecting and brighten up the skin Last but not least, of course, is Sunscreen. If you can, I highly recommend Wear sunscreen 365 days a year. Here are the products that I use for now and they are working well for me. However, you can also look for products that’s works best based on your age and skin type. It is never too early to start anti aging, find the right products would help to reduce and prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and lock your skin condition at your 20s.

Rosacea/Sensitive skin routine!
This is my new routine for the fall. I recently found out I have rosacea and hormonal acne so I have been experimenting with what products would best suit my skin. For reference: the hormonal birth control pill is what has cleared up my skin dramatically, and I cannot attribute my routine to clearing it up. But my routine is keeping my skin’s moisture barrier soft, healthy and glowing. I will add a brief overview of my routine and why it’s working so well for me! HERBIVORE - Pink Cloud Rosewater + Tremella Creamy Jelly Cleanser This cleanser is everything.... it’s low foaming, soft and gentle and effectively melts off any and all makeup and sunscreen. It’s non stripping, the only smell to it is very natural and not strong at all, and it’s also very hydrating. Tremella mushroom provides more hydration than regular Hyaluronic acid, and plant based squalane emulsifies all of the makeup and dirt on the skin to gently yet effectively whisk it away. When you rinse, your skin feels so comfortable and never tight/dry. My tried and true CeraVe hydrating cleanser started burning my skin so this cleanser has been a game changer for me! evian - Brumisateur Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray I made a post about this mist. I find that the water in NYC can be a little hard so using this resets my skin’s pH balance and makes for a very soothing product in my routine. I follow with moisturizer after using this lovely fine mist. Kiehl's - Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer This is such a lovely, simple cream. It has squalane, glycerin, apricot, avocado, olive and rice bran oils, and glacial glycoprotein. This moisturizer is thick enough to help the skin retain moisture and stay soft and supple without being heavy. I love this and I think it’s perfect for the fall to keep combination/normal/oily skin in check! DRUNK ELEPHANT - F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask Such a lovely product from drunk elephant! This is a multi use moisturizer/mask. It’s a leave on treatment chock full of hydrating and nourishing ingredients like electrolytes, vitamin F beads (they melt when you massage it in), a large dose of Niacinamide and squalane. This product is so lightweight yet moisturizing and really locks in hydration. I use this on top of my moisturizer night and day for glowy and happy skin! SUNDAY RILEY - Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream One of the only eye creams I actually like! There is a slightly botanical smell to it, but it doesn’t linger. This cream is very moisturizing, illuminating and instantly brightening/depuffing. When I use it I don’t have to use much concealer for my dark undereyes! GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask A very gentle retinol eye cream. No peeling/irritation. I find this helps to smooth texture and helps milia too! Not very clinical but still a nice product.
New AM & PM routines!
This is a major update to my previous routine post from a few months ago! I’ve been wanting to switch to primarily using one brand, and I just LOVE Sunday Riley. One of my favorite things is that all of her products are designed to work together — so minimal fear of negative interactions! And, if you check out my before/after post from a few weeks ago, you’ll see why I’ll be a longtime SR user!
Sunday Riley Empty
Got this as a sample, and used it in my travel bag as a night cream and I loved how nourishing and creamy it was. Its full of ceramides so its good for antiaging, something I of course couldnt tell from use of this small jar, but would definitely consider buying to try the full size. The texture was great, it was nice and thick and creamy, but not in a way that felt too heavy. I have oily skin so I definitely appreciated that, but because it was thicker i used it at night, and I liked the results, especially how my skin felt after application and in the morning. I would love to try more Sunday Riley products, they sound soo great and after a good experience with this baby sample, I’m intrigued to try more. #cheriepartner

Summer skincare routine /my favorites
As a combination, my skin is really sensitive to weather. Im extremely dry on cheeks during winter time and oily in T-area during summer. It’s kind of hard for me to find a stable routine through out the year. Here comes my summer favorite skincare routine with these three products that never go wrong. Oily skin is caused by dehydration and regulate skin moisture and grease balance. For my summer skincare, I’m mainly looking at products that supplement sufficient moisture and nutrition to the skin. Avène - Hydrance AQUA-GEL This gel cream is my favorite cream through out the year. Avene is famous for its gentle element. One thing I love about this product is that it is a multi-purpose, lightweight gel leaves complexion dewy, luminous and refreshed finish. It is super hydrating and gentle and can be used as a daily moisturizer, overnight mask and along the eye contour. This hydrating aqua cream-in-gel is an all-in-one, hydration powerhouse. The formula applys purifying and relieving element, assist to balance water and oil, and make skin healthy and clear. At the same time, it also improves dullness, minimizes pores and regulates moisture-oil balance。 ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery It is always important to apply a good moisturizer in the eye area at an early age to avoid these wrinkles.This eye cream can release the puffy problem your eyes be having. I normally pay extra attention around my eye area which is the major area that indicates aging on face. I’ve tried several products that caused fat particles around eye areas. I will insist on using it every day. It keeps my skin around the eyes from aging. DECORTÉ - Sun Shelter Multi Protection Without the protection of sunscreen, just a few minutes of daily sun exposure over the years can cause noticeable changes in how skin looks and feels, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. I always ask myself “Do i have enough sunscreen on?” Summer time is coming, finding the right product can protect your skin from these damaging ray. Unlike many sunscreen in stores, this sunscreen feels very rich, texture is nice and dont need a lot so it will last ages. Absorbs well and feels fresh.I love it!

Smart products that are great for sensitive dry combination skin
Fresh Deep Hydration Face Cream I discovered Fresh through a British fashion and beauty influencer, Josie LDN, when she talked about the brand on her Instagram stories. Her skin was glowing and she doesn’t have any pimples or redness or anything we don’t want on our skin, so I thought I should try this out for myself. I have dry combination skin so I like my moisturizers rich and heavy, especially when I use them for nighttime. Daytime is a bit different as I put on foundation and makeup so I like my face creams to be on the lighter side. I have tried gel-based moisturizers and I know they’re lightweight and hydrating, but weren’t enough for my thirsty facial skin. This face cream is gel-cream based but it contains hyaluronic acid, which is super hydrating and is against skin aging so I don’t doubt the plumping power of anything that has HA in it. Even if it’s a gel cream type moisturizer, it is super hydrating. I think it’s best for dry skin as it meant to drench your skin with all the moisture you want. My dry combination skin loves it. It feels amazing against my skin, and my face feels so hydrated. I like layering my serum with this before going to bed at night. I wake up with happy, hydrated skin! And the rosy smell is such a bonus! I feel like I’m transported to the rose farm Josie went to during a Fresh PR trip she shared on her Instagram. I love this product! If you’re looking for a hydrating cream that smells lovely, this is the product to go for. Clinique Smart Custom Repair Eye Treatment My eye skincare ritual is relatively recent as compared to my whole face regimen. I got worried from having crow’s feet so I tried on a couple of eye creams and serum to include in my ever so complicated yet heavenly skincare routine. My overall skin type is dry combination and sensitive. Given that the eye area is extra sensitive as it has the thinnest skin compared to the rest of our face, I knew I needed to take extra care of my eye area. I don’t have wrinkles yet and eye bags, but I do have under eye discoloration, so this is what I wanted to treat. I came across this custom care product on the Clinique website, and thought that sounds great. Anything custom-made (like the Biologique Recherche range that is supposed to be advised by an aesthetician) is good for the skin- that is what I believe in at least. This product did not disappoint! It is by far one of my favorite eye creams as it immediately addressed my main problem- dark under eye circles. I saw the difference after using it for only a couple of days. The dark under eye circles are noticeably brighter. I take it as the 2nd to the last step on my daytime skincare regimen, and the last one at night time. It works well for me. I love that the results are pretty immediate as I like my skincare products to work as hard as I do. Definitely recommend this product to those who suffer from dark under eye circles like me.
Today, we’re gonna talk about the Origins GinZin Ultra-Hydrating Energy-Boosting cream and the GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff. I love how the Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff brightens my under eyes and hydrates it. The GinZin Ultra-Hydrating Energy-Boosting Cream helps keep my skin hydrated and I just love these products. I absolutely recommend these two products!

OLEHENRIKSEN C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer
This product is a brightening, vitamin-C rich gel cream that hydrates and diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It helps target dullness, uneven texture, and dryness. This product is also known to improve makeup application by creating a smooth and hydrated canvas for foundation and concealer. The texture of this moisturizer is super unique. It is a gel cream that feels super bouncy and has a peachish/orange tint to it. So when I first started using this moisturizer, I wasn’t the biggest fan. As someone who has dry skin I love something that is thick and provides a lot hydration. I finally decided to give this another chance and I fell in love! This moisturizer is super lightweight but really hydrating. It helps prevent my skin from getting dry and flaky and also makes my skin feel super smooth. I would recommend this product to others because it is a great daily moisturizer and it is really long lasting as a little does go a long way! This product currently retails for $46 on Sephora.
OLE HENRIKSEN-C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer
#HOLYGRAIL - I’ve been teasing this review for quite awhile now and it’s become a very popular topic of discussion in my DM’s lately! Especially because it’s a MAJOR DUPE for a Drunk Elephant fave. 😲 - Acure Radically Rejuvenating Whipped Night Cream is a lightweight whipped superfood cream with Multi-Peptides, Vitamin C, Ferulic Acid, and Glacial Glycoproteins to soothe and hydrate. Not only is this baby PACKED with results-oriented ingredients, it’s 100% Vegan, Paraben, Sulfate, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, and Formaldehyde Free making it a #cleanbeauty lovers dream!! - Now down to the nitty gritty. I found this while looking for budget-friendly (less controversial) alternatives to the cult-favorite Drunk Elephant Protini and the truth is, after using it for the past couple of months, I think I actually like it more! The ingredients are VERY similar to Protini with the major differences being that Protini does contain an assortment of beneficial Amino Acids (and quite a few more preservatives like Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benoate, Xanthan Gum, etc.). Radically Rejuvenating Whipped Night Cream instead contains Glacial Glycoproteins which hydrates, smoothes, retains skin’s natural water reserves, and helps to protect skin from extreme temperatures. Additionally you’ll find Ferulic Acid, an antioxidant that decreases that formation of fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, and other signs of premature aging. It also boosts the effects of Vitamin C and Vitamin E. While I’m typically quite sensitive to Vitamin C, my skin responds so well to this moisturizer which may be the result of the Ferulic Acid which when used in conjunction with other antioxidants has the ability to increase their efficacy and make them more stable. - For texture, this is less Protini gel/cream and very similar to the DE Lala Retro™ Whipped Moisturizer which feels rich and whipped but absorbs quickly w/o leaving the skin feeling heavy or tacky. In my opinion, @Acure has truly created a winner with their Radically Rejuvenating Whipped Night Cream and at a jaw dropping $19.99 for 1.7 FL. OZ. it’s and absolute MUST TRY!
I’ve been testing these and these are my thoughts. 1- Vital- E Microbiome Age Defense Cream- The texture is divine! I’ve never had a cream that has this kind of texture. It’s velvety and thick. So so smooth! It goes on so well! It’s super hydrating and thick, so it’s great for colder weather. I don’t know how else to explain the texture. You guys have to see it and feel it. 2- Vital- E Microbiome Age Defense Eye Cream- This is a gem! It has the same texture as the face cream, but even thicker. It’s been so good for my dry under eyes. I apply it at night. I find that it’s too thick to wear under makeup. Needless to say I’ve been enjoying these two! I do have to say that I’m going to give it time to work it’s wonders on my skin. I think it’s too soon to see amazing results. But so far my skin does look smoother. It does not clog my pores. I’ll update you guys in about a month or so. FYI: These two will be available this month! Product Information: What it is: An anti-pollution, anti-blue light, and anti-aging moisturizer that helps visibly repair the skin barrier to help support your skin’s natural microbiome. (Microbiome is the skin’s protective shield of good bacteria on the surface of your skin). *** They had me at anti-blue light! 🙌🏼 What it says it does: It helps fight against the look of dullness, elasticity, and fine lines and wrinkles from pollution, indoor/outdoor climate changes, and blue light—environmental stressors that can weaken the microbiome (an invisible protective shield). It is powered by innovative Gamma E Antioxidant Technology and pre/pro-biopics. Also: It is free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, and triclocarban, and contains less than one percent of synthetic fragrances.
