Oily / Inner Dryness Skin Care Routine
I have always resented the fact that I have oily skin because it made me break out more often and left enlarged pores on my face. At the same time, I have inner dryness and if it’s not addressed, my face tends to produce more oil, which makes my skin concerns worse. However, over the years, I have come to terms with my skin and found a daily routine that works well for my skin type. Step 1 – CleanseProduct: Bioderma (Sensibio H20 Solution Micellaire)I like to go through a double cleanse system every night and I always start with cleansing water to remove the oil and dirt off my face to prevent build up that will clog my pores and lead to breakouts. This water is my holy grail item because it is very gentle on the skin yet effective in removing makeup residue or sunscreen, which I would apply every day. It does not have any scent, which is ideal for sensitive or acne-prone skin. Step 2 – Wash FaceProduct: Neutrogena (Deep Clean Facial Cleanser Normal to Oily Skin) Even though Bioderma’s cleansing water claims that it does not require wash-off, I still like to use a cleanser to get rid of any residue. This cleanser starts in a gel form, then lathers into a gentle foam when it touches water. I would have preferred it to be more foamy. However, it is just as effective in removing all the impurities and oil off my face, so I have no complaints. It has a citrusy scent, which I find quite pleasant, and my face feels very clean after using it without being stripped of moisture, so I quite enjoy this product. Step 3 – Soothing and Hydrating MistProduct: Avene (Eau Thermale Spring Water)I use this mist day and night, right after cleansing, to sooth my skin after the double cleanses and target my inner dryness. The mist spreads very evenly, covering every part of my face, and feel very refreshing and cooling, which wakes me right up in the morning. Step 4 – MoisturiserProduct: Clinique (Moisture Surge 72-hour auto-replenishing hydrator)Using an moisturizer is an essential last step of the skincare routine because it seals off the moisture we have applied beforehand and acts as a protective barrier for the skin. I chose this moisturizer because it is very light weight, in a gel texture, but hydrating enough to address my inner dryness, which prevents my face from over-producing oil. It also does not have any scent, so very safe for sensitive skin.

6 Skincare Tips from a Celebrity EstheticianIt’s been eight weeks since COVID-19 has caused us to shelter in place with the goal of putting an end to the novel coronavirus. While social distancing is playing an essential role in our health, the same can’t be said for our beauty routines. For beauty buffs, the lockdown has meant an abrupt halt to our routine visits to our facialists, dermatologists, and everything in between. What’s more, staying indoors has limited our exposure to vitamin D (which our skin needs to thrive), heeded unhealthy eating habits (which can wrack havoc on our skin), and turned us all into our very own (albeit mildly inexperienced) esthetician. To ensure our skin and well-being is taken care of during such a confusing time, we tapped into celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau. Below, she’s sharing six self-care tips to practice as you social distance.May 20
