I do promising to post my skincare routine since December to one of my blog reader and I can only making it today :( I'm so sorry~
I have oily skin with some hormonal pimples on my cheeks. I do get pimples easily when I do stressed. And back to normal soon I got disstressed. So I havent going to dermatologist to clearing up my acne all my life till now.
So, this is my morning routine :
I wash my face with Nivea Sparkling White Whitening Foam every morning as soon as I wake up & before I going to wear make up. It doesnt thighten up my face after washing it except my face felt so dry at the moment.
IF i have some pimples, I will use an acne gel before. I use Mediklin Gel which has Clindamycin Phosphate 1,2% as their main active ingredient. I do tried benzoil peroxide, salicylic acid, sulfur, and another active ingredients for acne medication but Clindamycin work best on my skin. So its kind of important to know what ingredients work best on you for curing acne.
After that I put my moisturizer sunscreen. I use Skin Aqua UV Moisture Gel Normal to Oily Skin SPF 30 PA++ that I got from Ci Stephanie (thank you so much introducing me to this :D) and definetely would repurchase soon when I run out. I did not use separate moisturizer for everyday since this sunscreen does have moisture properties on it and that method makes my face less oily on the middle of the day.
And then I put my bb cream along with another make up thingy..
After I got home, I would clean up my make up with Pixy UV Whitening Gentle Cleansing Express Two Way Bright. Then wash my face again with Nivea Sparkling White Whitening Foam.
Move on to my night routine :
Before I going to sleep, I would wash my face again with Nivea Sparkling White Whitening Foam.
After that I use Vitacid 0,025% which is a retinoic acid. I know about this first from Jen's skincare routine video here and she says that retinoid acid is one of her ultimate ingredient when curing her acne and she always use that untill her latest skincare routine video. And I also gettin know more about this from Retinoid thread at Female Daily Forum. I would not explaining all about retinoic acid since there so many blog explain about this one.
Another Product that I used to use in special time :
I use Hada Labo Shirojyun Arbutin Milk when my skin felt so dry because of the weather.
And when I wear a double duty make up, I will add more cleansing step on my routine. I use Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil after I cleaned my face with Pixy and before I wash with Nivea.
Every twice a week or when I wanted to I would use Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off as a srub & mask. I love this. Makes my skin feel so smooth afterward.
Some capture of ingredient of the products that I use :
Thats all skin caring routine that I do everyday. I keep it as simple as I can. And get you to know my skincare routine is got inspired by Jen Frmheadtotoe skincare routine. And surprisingly it do work nicely on skin though my skin is still not that good and need curing my deep acne scars on my cheek.
This is my current skin condition. Sorry if the photo size & quality is not same as the usual because I just take it with my phone camera in order to minimize the shakyness.
As I said I still have some acne scars that I need to fixed and also some pimples here and there. But this a lot better than my past condition.
Don't feel depressed because of what your face look like. And keep trying for the best.
Have a good day :)
