Even since I was sixteen, I’ve taken great care of my skin. I always cleansed my face before going to bed and made sure I uses moisturizer everyday. I’m in my late twenties now, and I’m super cautions of what I put on my skin. Whenever I’m shopping for skincare products, often times I’ll see the term “prevents breakouts” on certain items. My skin tend to get pimples or breakouts when I feel stress and of course of my lifestyle; traveling, lack of sleep, unhealthy diet and slowly aging skin. So besides focusing on “prevents breakouts” items, I’d go on shopping for other coercers like hydrating or anti-aging.
I came across a lot of different beauty products. And these are my current favorites products that works perfectly on my skin.
In the morning, depends on my skin condition, I wash my face with Son & Park Beauty Water, instead of using soap. I love this multitasking water. Great for refreshing my skin with a quick wipe. It helps to remove excess dirt and impurities even after face wash and also helps to remove unnecessary dead skin cells and moisturize your skin at the same time. Use it with a cotton pad and wipe out the excess dirt and dead skin after my cleaning routine. Guess what? It helps other products to absorb better into the skin.
Lately, I’ve been starting my routine with the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. It’s a miracle water with over 90% Pitera that helps your skin to have a healthy, radiant, glowing look. I put a few drops on cotton pad and I just pad it all over my face. I’ve only been using it for about half a year, and I do see a brighter complexion on my skin so I’m going to continue using this product in my daily routine.
As for serum, I've always switch it depends on my conditions and concerns. Current favorite is Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence. This is a moisturizing and anti-oxidizing serum. On days I used this, I realized that my skin is softer and smoother to the touch, and the moisture lasts longer. It just feels good to have on my skin.
Following with the face cream I'm using Huxley Cream Fresh and More. I’ve been using these products on an almost daily basis for about 2 months now and I love it leaves my skin feeling plump, but matte, and it also absorbs fast into my skin. I will bring it along in my travel beauty bag with me, it keeps my skin hydrated all day even in an extremely dry environment. The lightweight texture is to deal with oily and combination skin types.
About special care like breakouts and acne. I highly recommend COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pads! I shared it on my Instagram before and I am starting to love this brand. COSRX is perfect for girls who battle with breakouts, acnes and oily skin. I’ve been using it for a year and now is my third bottle and I'm still using it every night. It helps to kills hateful pimples and preventing unwanted breakouts, and leaves my skin feeling clean, smooth and it does not irritate my skin.
That’s all about my current skin care tips. I’d love to hear what you think about it.
