Skincare makes such a huge difference in how we feel about ourselves. I know when my skin is out of whack, I don’t feel as great. I mean isn’t twenties suppose to be the time when our skin finally calms down? No. We mistreat our bodies the most in our twenties. I know for a fact that I don’t eat on time or drink enough water. Somedays I go through a box of chocolates or just binge on junk food. Which is why I think I deserve it when my skin acts up.
So with a lot of trials and error, this is what I learned over the years– good skin takes effort. No, I’m not going to show you a 10 step skincare routine, just what I do every day to keep my skin looking clean and healthy. The first trick is to really know your ingredients and the second is to know your skin. I have combination to oily skin, and these steps have really changed my skin. So let’s get started.
I’ll use Micellar water regardless I wear makeup or not. I clean my face with micellar water to take every bit of dirt or makeup off my face. Garnier’s micellar water is a fantastic choice.
I use Biore baking soda cleanser to wash my face since it’s so gentle and does a great job of maintaining the PH of my skin.
I use Kojic soap to exfoliate, and honestly, it changed my life. I lather it on and leave it for a few minutes and then wash it off. It’s amazing. If you don’t use Retin A, you should really give this a try. Kojic soap is made out of fermented Japanese wine which is an excellent source of kojic acid. If you’re oily, please give this a try. You will have the most amazing skin. Just make sure to use a sunscreen when you go out.
After I”m done cleansing my face, I use micellar water to clean my face again just to check if I have any makeup residue. Trust me, most of the time I do. This is an extra step, but I really believe it helps.
I use Nature Republic NEW Soothing& Moisture ALOE VERA 92% GEL, and it really works wonders for my skin. I love how soft and hydrated it makes my skin. This is definitely worth a try.
I’ve been using sunscreen every day for the past three years, and it makes a huge difference. This is something I’ve added to my skincare routine after watching tons of k-beauty skin care videos, and you guys trust me it helps. If you hate the sticky feeling of sunscreen, give Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Lotion a try.
