Tips & Tricks To Glowing Skin
One of my biggest skin issues is dullness. Aside from the complication that is combination skin, I really dislike how lackluster my complexion can be sometimes. It can be really noticeable in photos which is part of the reason why I’m not really fond of taking selfies. What really helped me achieve a nice glow is niacinamide and glycolic acid. I discovered this by searching for skincare guides online and trying out different products. Honestly, I was a bit scared to experiment at first but I was also really excited, especially when I started seeing the effects. Simply put, glycolic acid strips away all my dead skin, revealing the fresh skin underneath. Meanwhile, niacinamide gradually lightens my dark spots. This results in fresh, glowing skin. It’s an amazing combination that really made my skin change for the better. I’m using a total of five products for my ‘glowing skin’ routine: 1. The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution 2. Nacific Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence 3. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 4. Mimi White AHA Serum 5. PASSION & BEYOND - Phyto Aqua Cream Take note that I don’t use all of this within the same routine. That’s because not all of them are compatible with each other, specifically niacinamide and AHA. Using them in the same routine can cause flushing and redness. In addition, it will also raise the pH of the AHA which will make it less effective. It’s simply not worth using them together. For instance, I use TO Glycolic Toner, Nacific Phyto Niacin Essence, and TO Niacinamide Serum at night. Meanwhile, in the mornings when I’m not planning to go out, I take one scoop of Phyto Aqua Essence into my palm and add a few drops of AHA serum. When I do have to go out, I don’t use the AHA serum because it can increase my chances of getting sunburned. Try these products and see if they work for you too! 💋
