What Crème Loves This Spring 🌸

    K-beauty made my skin clear and acne-free, healthy and radiant than ever before. It made me confident and unafraid in trying out new skincare. KOREAN SKINCARE is now a part of my lifestyle and it will always be! ❤️

    My skin type: Oily/combination-oily, acne-prone, mature skin

    Current skin concerns: Enlarged pores, dehydrated skin, spot-prone skin (I currently do not have acne now, and I want to keep it that way!)

    Goal: Keep acne away, firmer skin, and keep that dewy, radiant, glowy skin!✨

    Winter to spring is challenging for my skin. With temperatures rising quickly and the next day you get chilly, cold, windy weather (with some pollen allergies along the way), your skin is not able to cope quickly enough during the changing seasons. 

    I found new product discoveries which helped my skin stay healthy. I used and tested these products on myself, so you don't need to!😉I am sharing this so you have a guide or maybe help you get inspired on how to start and build your routine if you have the same skin type and/skin concerns like me.👍 

    For my daytime routine, I cleanse my face using PURITO Seoul Clear Code Superfruit Cleanser. Being oily/combo-oily skin and acne prone, I thought it is time to add a gentle BHA cleanser in my morning routine to help my skin control its oiliness during the day. Surprisingly, this has been a very good cleanser, with soft bubbles and non-drying too. Perfect to start the day!

    I don't forget to hydrate. For my hydration step, I stick to my usual OG toner, Klairs Supple Preparation Toner as my skin feels that extra nourishment and hydration, then use Isntree Green Tea Fresh Serum and apply it to my t-zone to control oiliness during the day. Isntree Green Tea products keep my skin hydrated and also help control my skin's oiliness thanks to green tea's 'astringent properties' (WITHOUT any astringent as ingredient!). I also want to use a vitamin C serum during the day that is non-irritating  water based so I won't get oily (my skin does not like oil-based and pure vitamin C serums 😒). Beplain Multivitamin Ampoule is still my favorite vitamin C serum, hands down. 

    I seal off hydration and protect my skin: I seal all that hydration work using RoundLab Mugwort Cream. Of course, I don't skip sun protection (this is non-negotaible, Peaches.) Because it is getting warm during the day, I went back to my first love sunscreen SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Air-Fit Suncream Plus. I have brown skin, and this mineral sunscreen is perfect for me: soothes and calms my acne prone skin, controls oiliness, mattifies my skin but does not leave my skin dull and tight, and evens our my skin tone. I forgot how this sunscreen works like a bb cream for my skin (since I don't ever use any foundation or bb/cc creams.). ☝️Last step - and this is important mostly for oily skin types out there: I use a mineral powder to set my sunscreen (if you use your powder to set your makeup, I use powder to set my sunscreen!) 

    For night time, I don't skip my double cleansing routine being acne-prone and oily skin type. My current faves? The Ma:nyo Pure Cleansing Oil (I don't know how many bottles I've emptied as of today - hands down - my all-time favorite!!). (I am currently trying out the newly launched Ma:nyo Pure Cleansing Oil - Deep Clean for 3 days now at date of publishing this. This has a lightweight texture than the Pure Cleansing Oil). I follow with a second cleanse using Dr.G pH Red Blemish Clear Soothing Foam or Roundlab Mugwort Calming Cleanser

    At night, it is all about repairing my skin and retinol nights. I find myself focusing on hydrating toners and layering them, and using By Wishtrend Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash for exfoliation rather than an exfoliating toner. found new hydrators and gentle exfoliators in form of toners. For hydration, I use Klairs Supple Preparation Tonerand the newly launched Mixsoon Centella Toner Pad (I use this as a DIY sheet mask/toner pack to hydrate my skin. This is a very good find!). I indulge (yes, I do!) in treatment skincare in the evening to help even out my skin tone and manage my acne-prone skin, and layer them (in order): SKIN1004 Centella Ampoule and/or PURITO SEOUL Wonder Releaf Centella Serum Unscented, HARUHARU Wonder Centella 4% TXA Dark Spot Go Away Serum, JUMISO Snail Mucin 95% + Peptide Essence (this is by the way a very very good snail essence, I can't believe I have not tried this before!) and Dr. Ceuracle Royal Vita Propolis 33 Ampoule. When my skin is irritated and I have a few unwanted spots, I use COSRX Niacinamide 15 Serum (still the best niacinamide serum to deal with acne-prone skin!) to deal with the unwanted spots and keep them at bay. On retinol nights, I use Mizon 0.3% Retinol Cream.

    🤫I'll share a secret here: When my skin is irritated, have unwanted pimple(s) or during retinol nights, I make sure to use the Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream right after my serums and retinol cream, before moisturiser, to maximise its calming effect (mainly to prevent acne, and especially during the retinol nights, or when I have spots or when my skin gets crazy on me!) and apply my moisturiser RoundLab Mugwort Cream as my last step (very hydrating. I apply a thick layer like as sleeping mask and feels perfect. I wake up to a very plump, smooth skin!).

    I don't forget my lips at night to ensure I wake up with plump lips in the morning for smooth lipstick or lip tint application. My current favorite? It's the NEEDLY Lip Sleeping Mask. My lips are plumped in the morning, no more flaky lips, so I don't need to lip scrub to exfoliate anymore!💋

    P.S. Oily skin types are prone to occasional breakouts 😣 When you have an unwanted pimple or two, my advice: 1) Don't pop and touch your zit. Use a pimple patch. 

    See what's in my current skin and hair care routines in this collection, and my skin & hair are loving them!

    Always remember: listen to your skin - it is telling you what it needs! I hope this helps! Have fun and enjoy your #MeTime!! ❤️

    Wishing you good skin health always, Peaches! 🍑

    P.S. No breakouts to date! Woohoo! 🥳👌
