Daily routine for sensitive oily skin in summer
In summer, my skin is normal to oily with a bit of breakouts all on my cheeks which are a mix of hormonal and I guess bacterial breakouts (if that’s what you call it?). I’ve been using these two products for over 2 months now and I’ve noticed significant reduction in my pores and acne, and inflammation/redness. I also always find when I wake up that my skin is very well hydrated without it feeling greasy. 1. fresh Louth Youth Preserve face cream with super 7 complex Love this moisturizer. I first got it years ago from Sephora as a small free gift. It is very light and has the most pleasant and soothing smell. Smells like light cucumber fresh out of the spa! It does not irritate me at all around the eye area, like other moisturizers can. It keeps my skin feeling soft and healthy. I would totally recommend trying this! This high-potency face cream delivers unstoppable moisture for soft, supple skin with a lightweight texture and spa-like scent. Powered by antioxidant lotus root extract and vitamin E in fresh’s super 7 complex, it fights the first signs of aging and creates a perfectly smooth canvas for makeup. 2. The Ordinary 100% organic cold-pressed rose hip seed oil This formulation uses 100 percent pure rosehip seed oil— rich in linoleic acid, linolenic acid, and pro-vitamin A—that is both cold-pressed and organic. This oil has been shown to reduce signs of photo-aging and many other skin conditions. This product is vegan, cruelty-free, cold-pressed, organic, and formulated without water, alcohol, silicone, nuts, and gluten. Rose Hip Seed Oil is completely unrefined and imparts a natural scent partly due to its high omega fatty acid content. This scent is not an indication of rancidity. Rose Hip Seed Oil that does not have a scent is refined and offers reduced benefits. It comes in UV-protective packaging.

My Skin Saviours for Changing Seasons
The season change is a fussy thing to deal with: your skin will be sensitive, or maybe dull and dehydrated. Dead skin could make it worse if you don't dare to use scrub or acid products. I have got combo/oily skin, and when it comes to the end of winter and summer, my face becomes easily irritated with flushing and tingling feeling. I did some research online and discovered these products suitable for the crazy seasonal change. Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray After cleansing, I use this spray for instant hydration. I towel dry my face and spray this mist evenly on my face and neck. The mist is soothing, and it has no fragrance or additives, just thermal spring water. I leave it on my face for a minute and wipe it away, and this prepares for my next step. NIOD - Modulating Glucosides I like this product pretty much for its powerful calming effect on redness and uncomfy feelings. This emulsion contains glucosides, peptides, and plant extracts to minimize skin sensitivity in all situations. It has a yellowish color and is easy to smooth on the skin, but the smell is a bit strange though I don't hate. Large squalene provides a layer of protection and moisturization; it feels a bit oily but absorbs quickly and doesn't cause acne as well. I love this, and this is my second bottle so far. BOBBI BROWN - Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer After the emulsion, I put this face balm on to provide total hydration. When my face is healthy enough to put on foundation, I use it as a moisturizing primer. The shea butter in it can nourish the skin without any irritation while the vitamin c and vitamin e as antioxidants give skin a strong shield to environmental stress. It smells like fresh citrus, really refreshing and pleasant. A little goes a long way; I put a pea size of it on my finger and gently slide on my face to finish this routine—also, another non-comedogenic product I like. Going to say that it is super annoying to stop everything else from fighting sensitivity or other unexpected guests, but with enough preparation, this won't be a big issue anymore.
Moisturization secret for dry＆sensitive skin
I thought I was good at making choices, but when it came to picking up appropriate products for my dry and sensitive skin (24), I got lost being overwhelmed by numerous products in the market. I once got advertised by SAs, friends, advertisements, TV commercials, etc., and bought plenty of products. After lots of trials over my skin, I finally found this routine below safe, secure, and effectively nourishing, which is what I am going to elaborate on. FILORGA - NCTF-Essence Supreme Regenerating Lotion Essence This lotion is good at moisturizing, for it contains the ingredient hyaluronic acid. It is under the famous series of Filorga and uses water sensors, AQUA-MX technology. I usually apply it after cleanser. The texture is lightweight, and it does not feel oily at all (on this point it prevails as 5％ of all the lotions that I have used, especially much better than Lancome Tonique Confort) I guess this is why my face hardly gets irritated since I quit other and changed into this one. Elizabeth Arden - Ceramide Capsules Advanced Each bottle contains 90 capsules, and they should be used within a day, better instantly after opening one. It is not lightweight, but I can accept it as it actively strengthens my skin’s moisture barrier. It is biodegradable, fragrance, and preservative-free, which dramatically reduces the chances of getting allergic or being troubled by eczema, acne, or other problems for my sensitive skin. I recommend to use it at night before sleep, and it will reveal a look full of radiance the other day. la prairie - Skin Caviar Luxe Cream It is of high price comparatively, but it is worth every penny you pay. I was advertised aggressively by one of my friends who shares the same skin type. I try this for two years, and it gives my face a silky look. It is instrumental in eliminating the feeling of tightness on my face. I love this, and these two years, my face gets more and more radiance. This combination of products has been used for six months. All are nourishing and moisturizing enough for dry skin without triggering any skin problems. Recommend them to you, but make sure you try samples before buying them.

Oily skin can't use face oil? Of course not!😏
Facial treatment oils/face oils are not only for dry skin. Those with combination or oily skin can get the same effect if you choose the right skincare products. Below I'll introduce three of my favorite face oils: CLINIQUE - Smart Treatment Oil It has an amazing list of ingredients, including safflower oil (expensive but a great whitener), all kinds of natural oil, vitamin E, and esterified C. It feels great when applied on the skin, and it's easily absorbed, and non-greasy. But I've heard that the production for this product has stopped. SUNDAY RILEY - Luna Sleeping Night Oil It contains retinol acid for anti-aging and anti-acne properties, all kinds of anti-inflammatory ingredients, and also various types of oil extracts to effectively repair the skin's barrier. I'll use this sleeping night oil only when I'm not using other retinol products. It's great at soothing redness, and it's even more effective when you match it with other acidic products. It has an oil-like texture and you have to get used to the slightly bad smell. You can treat it as an entry-level retinol product to build up your skin tolerance. LA MER - The Renewal Oil It contains a lot of anti-aging ingredients, it has a nice scent, a refreshing texture, and is easily absorbed when applied. My skin is visibly more delicate since using it. All these three products won't cause acne breakouts and they are all suitable for combination skin regardless of the season. If you're planning to use it with a serum, you must use it after the serum. If you have any suggestions or questions, pls tell me below!

Facial Moisturizer Awards 🏆🏅
Hi guys👋🏻 Today, i’d like to share my current top three moisturizer favorites. I still have plenty that I love, these are just ones I have been using religiously from the past months. These products are great for oily, rosacea and acne-prone skin🥰 1. THE inkey LIST - Snow Mushroom Hydrating Gel Moisturizer (my second tube) This moisturizer is formulated with 0.3% Tremella Fuciformis (snow mushroom). It aims to soothe, calm, and reduce the appearance of redness while providing an instant cooling effect. The plant extract is a rich source of polysaccharides and is known to have the ability to help hydrate the skin by binding moisture to the surface. The consistency of the Snow Mushroom moisturizer is very jelly-like. It looks thick but actually is very lightweight once absorbed by skin. Although it feels sticky to the touch, it works well when applied and doesn’t leave a sticky residue. I used to be obsessed with products which give you cooling effect but since most of my faves contain alcohol and fragrance, I had to stop using them -- the Inkey List Snow Mushroom is a very unique find for me and that’s why I love it so much! This would also be a worthy product for your summer skincare routine! 2. PROcure - Rosacare Gel (second bottle almost out!) My skin absolutely loves this gel cream. I did write a review on this before, in which I rated it four out five stars, but let me say now -- it has become one of the best moisturizers I’ve ever used! When I started using retinoid, this cream (and TO niacinamide) has helped my skin so much in coping with the mild irritation but also helped control my redness and flushing. I also used to work as a cook, I would always go home with an extremely red itchy face which further triggered my acne flare ups. This has always done a great job in calming as well as keeping my skin overall balanced. This is very lightweight, non-irritating and has a slight green color to it that helps even out skin tone (but does not completely cover). I would say this works better than any other product of its kind. If you have rosacea or is prone to flushing — consider trying this one. I will definitely keep repurchasing it. 3. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream (just finished, third bottle on the way🤗) Seriously, who hasn’t used this one yet? This moisturizer does not disappoint. This hydrates skin without making it oily and leaves it feeling smooth and soft. Although it glides on like silk when first applied (at least on my oily skin), this does not feel heavy or clogging at all. It also works really well for daytime and nighttime use, even under makeup. Have never experienced skin irritations or breakouts since using this product. If you’re someone who doesn’t mind a dimethicone based moisturizer, this is must-try!

wrinkles go away
I’m always one to be open to trying new products to see how they can benefit my skin. If it doesn’t work, I simply move onto the next product. If I ever come across something that works extremely well, I’ll add it to my list of must haves and will usually not steer away from that product unless I happen to stumble across a better working product. ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Limited Edition ESTĒE LAUDER - Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Crème For my skin care routine to keep my skin hydrated, I’ve consistently been using Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night repair and their Revitalizing Supreme+. These two have worked great in keeping my skin hydrated which helps keep my dry skin away and whenever my skin is more hydrated, I look younger. These two also have great anti-aging affects on your skin, and you can really see the difference after a few applications. Your lines and wrinkles start to disappear after a few application, that along with the more hydrated skin really makes your skin feel amazing. The Revitalizing Supreme+ creme is non-acnegenic, so it doesn’t clog my pores and helps me reduce my acne. This works great with the advanced night repair because that serum is oil free. I’ve always had acne prone skin, so using these two has helped my acne and even helped reduce breakouts. I highly recommend these two products if you have acne prone skin, dry skin, or have dehydration. These two products go hand in hand and will work wonders for anyone with similar skin issues as me. Results may not show right away, but constant application will show great results!

HOLY GRAIL PRODUCTS FOR OILY/ACNE PRONE SKIN
I have combination-oily and acne-prone skin. Aesop's most popular serum, the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant SerumAesop - Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum, is not suitable for acne-prone skin, so after some research, I chose their Lightweight Facial Hydrating Serum, B & Tea Balancing Toner, and Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream. Aesop B & Tea Balancing TonerAesop - B & Tea Balancing Toner It's refreshing and hydrating, and it leaves your skin shine-free, so it feels great in summer! 😘 This toner also soothes redness during acne breakouts. However, it's not moisturizing enough for winter use. Aesop Mandarin Facial Hydrating CreamAesop - Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream This is Aesop's most refreshing hydrating cream, a must-have for combination-oily skin.😉 It has a creamy texture and is easily absorbed, leaving your skin grease-free. It's also pretty moisturizing but I couldn't see that my skin got any brighter. Aesop Lightweight Facial Hydrating SerumAesop - Lightweight Facial Hydrating Serum My skin usually becomes red after cleansing, but this is really soothing, and it helps to soothe the redness. 😊It also keeps my makeup from coming off. However, make sure to emulsify the serum on your palm before applying on your face for better absorption.
