Updated Skin Care Routine – August 2016

It’s been 3 months since I shared my updated routine. I needed to change it up a bit because my skin got used to some products. Now, how do I introduce a new product in my routine? I give it 1 to 2 weeks. For example, cleanser. I try it out for 1 week. If it’s okay then I’ll add the new toner and so one. That way it’s easy for me to determine the culprit in case I have irritation or breakout. It’ll be difficult if you use all new ones at the same time. Just like in makeup.

Makeup remover

Skinlite Cleansing Tissue

Yup, I still prefer tissues over other makeup removers because I’m lazy. I also find that they remove makeup better. It feels refreshing while removing all makeup. I’m a full coverage freak. I use liquid foundation, concealer and powder foundation and it works fine. I still buy the same brand. It’s only 89 pesos (approx $2). It’s difficult to switch when I already found something cheap that works.

Cleanser

iWhite Whitening Vita Facial Wash

I needed to take a break from my favorite cleanser so my skin wont get used to it. That being said it will still be effective when I return to it and as usual I need to find a substitute for a couple of weeks or months. This is my first time to try iWhite Korea. So far it’s okay. Full review next week!!!

Mask

I got tired of waiting for it to be back in stock. Sheet mask is always to the rescue when we need to pamper ourselves. We got these from Etude House. Not really a fan of sheet masks but these will do for now.

Toner

Klairs Supple Preparation Toner & Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner

I’m using two toners. Klairs when I want extra hydration or in the morning. Supple Preparation Toner minimizes the appearance of wrinkles on my forehead. I reach for Wonder Pore if I had a long sweaty day of commuting, exercising, on a hot weather or whenever I want extra cleansing.

Moisturizers

Feeling the magic of slime again. Snail slime is good for brightening, anti ageing and calming. Gel type moisturizer is light and nice for oily skin. I’m staying away from anti acne moisturizers because they make my pores look bigger.

Aquaphor and Hydrocortisone
I still use these whenever my dermatitis flares up. Aquaphor is my savior for reducing itch and redness. It also prevents flaking and wounds. Followed by Hydrocortisone after the skin has calmed down. There’s no cure for this. It’s sad that we have to deal with this forever. Oo, may forever pala! 😧

Spot Treatment

Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream

Its purpose is spot treatment only. I like to apply it on spots that were left from acne. You know those red spots and sometimes they’re flakey. This is also good for moisturizing those. It smells great and feels relaxing. Click here for full review

I thought you have acne prone skin? I didnt see a zit zapper in this post.” I have hormonal acne but the main cause of my breakouts is stress. Stress = hormonal imbalance. I minimize that issue with relaxing/de-stressing at the end of the day. Everyday.
