Every season, I always make the effort to examine my skincare regimen and adjust it for the change in weather. Think of it as skincare wardrobing; you change your clothes for the season, doesn't it make sense to do so for your skin, too? Think about it; we're going from dry, cold air to warmer, sun-filled days. And, if you have dry skin like me, the needs change! Since I have acne-prone dry, dehydrated skin (read: if it's too dry, it overproduces oil that turn into white heads and acne), hydration is always top of mind for me. When the weather heats up, though, richer moisturizers that may have saved me in the winter can now clog my pores and cause acne, since the sun is more potent and so is my, well, sweat.The general rule of thumb for skincare wardrobing is to follow what your clothes do—so from winter to spring, lighten up! Keep reading to check out my top three ways to update your skincare for the spring season.1. Move oils to the backA good facial oil does wonders for the skin, and i'm a believer that no matter your skin type, there's an oil for you. While I also think they're great year-round, I don't necessarily think they're the best for every day. When the sun comes out you sweat more and the air is not as dry, so your skin starts to find an easier balance in oil production, making heavy oils not as necessary. In the spring I like to use a facial oil just twice a week and of course, I reach for beloved squalane which is non-comedegenic! 2. Double-up on serumsIn the spirit of keeping things light, now is a great time to double up on serums in place of those rich moisturizers that fare well in the winter. I like to do this in the morning since I know I'm going to most likely sweat throughout the day. Cocktailing your serums based on results is a great move; currently, i'm layering April Skin's Carrot Serum to combat my acne with The Inkey List's Polyglutamic Acid for deep hydration .3. Milks, lotions, and gel creams are your friend The last wardrobing move I make is my moisturizer. I like to reach for thinner moisturizers like milks, lotions, and gel creams. While a lotion may be too thin for others, there are definitely some with a great consistency that can hydrate deeply on their own, like May Coop's Raw Sauce. The more obvious choices would be a moisturizing milk or a nice gel cream. Hado Labo Goku Jyun Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Milk is an amazingly moisturizing milk with a medium-thin consistency, yet potent formula. As for gel creams, Neutrogena's Hydroboost Gel Cream is a staple; it works SO good when it comes to hydration!

A Tale Of Three Snail Creams
A Tale Of Three Snail Creams
I’m not gonna lie, my combination skin makes it hard for me to find good face creams. My t-zone tends to be oily while my cheeks tend to be dry. Sometimes, my skin would even fluctuate between dry and oily, which is simply annoying. I’ve tried three different snail creams before, one of which I’m still using at the moment. This is my verdict for all three, as someone with combination skin. DEWYTREE - Ultra Vitalizing Snail Cream This cream was the very first product I tried from this Korean brand, actually. My boyfriend gifted it to me during one of his trips to Korea. It costs around $22 for 80ml. I actually didn’t like this cream a lot, mainly because of the smell. It’s hard to explain, but it doesn’t smell like something you’d want to put on your face. It’s moisturizing but it didn’t make me oily, which was good. I could even wear it under my makeup as long as I only used a little bit of it. Coreana Winage Snail Magic Cream This is one of my favorite creams in the whole world. Just like the last cream, this was also bought for me by my boyfriend. More specifically, it was his mom who recommended this cream for me since apparently it has a very good reputation among Koreans. It costs roughly $30 for 100ml, which isn’t a bad price at all. I found it quite perfect for my combination skin. It moisturized my skin just enough to avoid dryness but it got absorbed pretty quickly too so I never became oily while using this. I wanted to continue using this after I ran out, but it’s not available in my country and my boyfriend wasn’t able to buy one again during his last Korea trip. Dr. G Black Snail CreamDr.G - Black Snail Cream If you have dry skin, and I mean really dry skin, this cream is perfect for you. It’s quite thick so I use it only at night. At roughly $50 for 50ml, it’s the most expensive of the three, but it works so well that I’m actually already on my second tub. This was also recommended for me by my boyfriend’s mom because apparently it’s a popular cream in Korea. I still prefer Coreana over this though, mainly due to how thick this is. It’s really more suited towards dry skin people than normal or oily skin people. Of these three snail creams, I’d say you should check out Coreana if you’ve got normal or combination skin, and Dr. G if you have dry skin. Dewytree isn’t so bad for normal or combination skin too, but you’re honestly better off with these other options.

My acne fighting duo for under $20
My acne fighting duo for under $20
Some acne honesty: Although these worked really well for me, they might not work for everyone. Your skin is unique and might react better to different products. It can be a really frustrating process, I totally get it! What worked for me was finding someone online who had a similar skin type and similar story when it came to acne. Just always remember to take it easy on yourself. Acne is normal and it doesn’t make you any less beautiful. My current skin situation: I currently have combination, acne prone skin. I had very clear skin for most of my life until I went off birth control over a year ago now. I tried almost everything to try and get rid of my acne, but it took months to find a solution. It was just earlier this year that I finally found a couple products that helped keep acne at bay! I barely gets zits anymore (bless) but when I do, it can be very discouraging. My skin scars very very easily and it takes at least a month to get rid of the scars left over from the acne. SO anytime I see a zit pop up, I reach for these two products which help me 1) get rid of that zit quickly and 2) minimize the potential for future acne scars. How I use these together: Benzagel - Acne Gel 5% (face wash version) I usually use this just at night time because I just do a water cleanse in the morning. But when I get a pimple, during the morning I’ll cover the zit with the face wash for about a minute then wash that off. Then I’ll proceed with the rest of my routine, but I’ll avoid using any vitamin c / spf on the pimple. And then this where I’ll add the.... COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch When I have a zit I will wear one of these during the day and a new one at night. It’s a grossly satisfying product because once you take them off, you can see the amount of oils that it has pulled from the skin / zit (you’ll see a white blob on the patch). The effects: After just 24 hours, the zit will almost fully disappear when I use the two of these together. The spot will be so much smaller than it is when I let the acne heal itself and the scarring is minimal, if noticeable at all. Which is amazing considering my normal pimples almost always scar (even if I DONT pop them). The best part: You can get both of these products for less than $10 CAD!
MY FACE MAKEUP ROUTINE for when I’m breaking out
MY FACE MAKEUP ROUTINE for when I’m breaking out
For numerous reasons, I have been stressed lately which really shows on my skin. I already get the occasional breakout, around the time of the month, and sometimes from diet and eating food that probably isn’t GREAT for me. So with additional stress I eat more, crave more crappy food, maybe pick at my skin, etc. I also wear a face mask whenever I go out and with the heat and humidity of where I live, it just becomes a skin nightmare. I just made another post about how I’ve changed up my skincare routine. Here is my makeup routine for covering it up. Add warmth and color back into the face. COLOURPOP - Super Shock Blush in Count Me In NUDESTIX - Nudies All Over Face Color Bronze + Glow in Terracotta Tan I find that when I’m breaking out, my face can tend to look flat and pale. By adding some warmth and color back into the face, you look healthier and more radiant which will help a lot at disguising breakouts. The colourpop blush is a beautiful mousse-y texture that gives sheer color with a satin-finish. The cream bronzer is my holy grail! It’s super creamy, long-lasting and looks just. like. skin. Spot-conceal. MAKE UP FOR EVER - Full Cover Concealer Wearing a full-coverage long-wear foundation just isn’t the way to go for me. It ends up looking cakey and accentuating texture instead of disguising it. As the individual breakouts are the only areas I really want to cover, I don’t want to cover the areas of my skin that are actually smooth and break-out free! This concealer is super high coverage, a little goes a long way and very long lasting. I will sometimes use a pinpoint eyeliner brush or even just my ring finger to pat the product exactly where I need it! This TRULY gives the illusion of smoother, clearer skin. Lock it in. rms beauty - Un" Powder I love this powder because of its super fine and silky texture. It makes my skin look 100% poreless which is perfect for smoothing out texture on my skin! It also keeps my T-zone area shine-free all day without drying out my skin (as many mattifying powders do to me).
Battle of the Hyped Sunscreens
Battle of the Hyped Sunscreens
My skin type is combo oily that can lean more dry during the weather changes or just randomly. My skin concerns are acne, oiliness throughout the day and also dehydration. I’ve ranked these popular hyped sunscreens based on how they worked for me personally (going from favorite to least favorite). My favorite is Unseen because it’s a primer and sunscreen in one, is lightweight and I haven’t had an issue with pilling. I prefer SPF 40 or higher. . Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Key Ingredients: Complex Derived from Meadowfoam Seed (increases hydration levels), and Red Algae (helps protect against blue light emitted by electronic devices). Texture/Consistency: Gel Scent: None Price: $34 for 1.7 oz / 50 mL Experience: Is designed to be used as a primer, makes it quicker to get ready. It feels so lightweight, I can’t even tell that I’m wearing it throughout the day, doesn’t pill or make me oily. Repurchase/Recommend?: Yes, I definitely am going to purchase the full size of this! It simplifies my routine and lightweight. . Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion 50 Default Title Key Ingredients: Sunflower Extract (protects your skin from external environmental elements) and Rosemary Leaf Extract (has a calming effect on the skin and is rich in antioxidants). Texture/Consistency: Lotion Scent: None Price: $32 for 5.5 oz / 162 mL OR $58 for 18 oz / 532 mL Experience: It was too heavy on top of a moisturizer and made me look greasy, but applied by itself it was lovely (have a glow, but wasn’t too heavy). It also doesn’t pill when I put my makeup on. Repurchase/Recommend?: Yes, it would be more for people with dry skin, but it’s moisturizing enough to act as my moisturizer too so I apply it by itself (or on top of serum). . FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 Key Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (physical sunscreen that helps filter harmful UV rays) and Alteromonas Ferment Filtrate and Vitamin E (both help protect against environmental aggressors). Scent: None Texture/Consistency: Liquidy Price: $34 for 1.5 oz / 44 mL Experience: I love that this is tinted, it doesn’t leave a white cast at all! It is lightweight, easily sinks in, and doesn’t make me oily throughout the day. It also doesn’t pill at all, so easy to put makeup on after. Repurchase/Recommend?: Maybe, I just wish it was a higher SPF. . DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 Key Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (physical sunscreen that protects from harmful rays) and Algae Extract and Sunflower Sprout Extract (both protect against free radical damage). Scent: None Texture/Consistency: Lightweight Cream Price: $36 for 2 oz / 60 mL Experience: It feels heavy and doesn’t sink in all the way, plus pilled and made my CC Cream look cakey and terrible. Repurchase/Recommend?: No, it pilled badly and doesn’t work well with makeup on me.
