Since now my skincare game is coming back stronger than ever, I’d like to share my routine. More so as my own documentation than other reasons but I hope for those of you who stumbled upon this post can be mildly entertaining to read.
I hate morning cleanse. Because I do it on the sink. The feeling when water runs down my arms is quite unpleasant to me. Especially when the water starts to drip from my elbow to the floor. Can we not? But I do it anyway because I love using my Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser. The scent is addictive. I’m on my third bottle of this tuff. Unfortunately I don’t have a backup ready cuz I forgot to add this cleanser into my order via my friend. So no more of this after this bottle. Which is fine I guess. I probably will try the Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Cleanser once I’m done with this.
Then I do my BHA exfoliating step with Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid. My nose has some serious clogging issues. I have sworn off putting anything on my nose because of this. But now after a few weeks of everyday use my nose has cleared up and it’s so much smoother than prior using this.
After waiting for about 10-20 minutes (depending on how much time I have) I tap tap tap some of my SK-II Facial Treatment Essence on my face with my bare hands. On the contrary of the cleanser, this essence has the most repulsing scent ever (exaggeration, I bet there are more vile smelling products than this). But I do find myself not liking how my skin look if I stop using this regularly. My skin emanates a more radiant healthy glow when I’m being diligent with this. I’m halfway of the biggest pump bottle already. It’s crazy how expensive this stuff is.
Once the first essence is tapped dried, now it’s time for second essence which I use as my moisturizer. It’s Cosrx Advance Snail 96 Mucin Essence. Two pumps of this is enough for my moisturizing need. Since this is so much thinner for my usual cream moisturizer I feel like this is the perfect way to inject some moisture in the hot weather. Honestly though how many time can I say moisture in one post?
As in for the eye department I’m still working with Origins Ginzing Eye Cream. It’s moisturizing enough for in the morning. I like to use eye cream to make my concealer blend smoother. Also the iridescent pearls in the cream kind of brighten my dark under eye areas. That’s like my biggest skin problem. I don’t think this eye cream actually lighten my under eyes, it just makes them look/appear brighter. Am I even making sense to you?
And the last step is to apply sunscreen. SUNSCREEN IS IMPORTANT! So I apply this every single day with no fail. Currently I’m on my second bottle of Clarins Ecran Multi Protection sunscreen. Really like how thin the texture is but since it’s physical sunscreen, I do have to wait a while for the white cast to dissipate. But I’m not playing with my sun protection, I mean business when it comes to this.
So there you go, my current step by step of my AM skincare. Was gonna put up my photo to show my current skin condition but naaah, I look gross today hahaha.
