It has been a while since I shared what I currently use on my skin. As part of this job (and my favorite benefit), I have the opportunity to try many skin care products. Before I share my thoughts, anything new must be tested for at least 3 weeks. My skin type is dry, I have some dark spots/sun spots, I have fine lines and wrinkles, so the products I use mainly target these. I like to take care of my skin, skin care is probably my most splurge. I say this because although there are many steps in my skincare routine, it does not mean that yours must look the same. I am also 36 years old, and my skin care routine did not look like this at all when I was in my 20s. I used to do facial treatment once a month, but it hasn’t been done since Covid started.I had my first one a few weeks ago Moisturize In more than a year, it was great. This is one of my favorite treatments and my skin feels good afterwards.
For my skin care routine, I have been using the same things for some products for years, while for other products I try new things every few months. As far as the order of use for skin care is concerned, I have listed the order in which I use them below. Sometimes I use oil in the last step, but recently I have been skipping it. I already know very well what my skin needs. I adjust my skin care routine on this basis, it may change every day (for example, if I am about to start my cycle, I might exfoliate and then make a moisturizing mask). Finally, “clean beauty” has no standard or industry definition. FFDCA was promulgated more than 80 years ago and has not been revised since then. The beauty industry clearly needs more supervision and transparency. At the same time, I use Sephora’s standard Follain and Clean sources to help guide my decision on the products I use. I also insist on using cruelty-free products. Do what works best for you, your lifestyle, and your budget. Regarding this, this is my current skin care routine.
Summer skincare routine
in the morning
Cleanser: I always say Naturopathica Manuka Honey Cleansing Balm, But for summer, it’s really hard to beat Farmaesthetics Fine Herbal Cleanser. It smells good and foams well, but it is not dry. The makeup removal effect is also very good. I use it in Marin’s bath and Craig likes it too.
Toner: Indie Lee COQ-10 Toner Still my favorite. It is gentle and refreshing, and I like that it leaves any residual makeup after cleansing. It can prepare my skin for the rest of my skin care products without drying out. It contains hyaluronic acid and aloe vera, so it has a soothing and moisturizing effect.I also use these Organic reusable skin care and makeup remover pad Instead of cotton balls. They are very easy to throw into the washing machine.
serum: I love Follin Vitamin C Brightening Serum. It is very lightweight, absorbs quickly, and is not sticky. It contains a combination of Vitamin C and Niacinamide to brighten the complexion. You only need a pump, and a little goes a long way.
Eye cream: I really like it Follain Firming + Brightening Eye Cream Use it during the day because it is good for puffiness and absorbs well. It contains many great skin care ingredients such as bakuchiol, caffeine, vitamin C and moringa oil. It makes my under-eye area more hydrated and brighter, and makes my makeup look more flawless.
moisturizer: I have been using GoopGlow lotion For more than a month, I really like summer. It is very light and moisturizing. I noticed that it makes my skin look very hydrated and moisturized. It also has the citrus orange smell that I like.
Sunscreen: I use Supergoop Mineral SheerScreen Most days. It has a light texture, good absorption, and looks good makeup.If i don’t wear makeup i will use Sai visor Instead of Supergoop.
Cleanser: identical Farmaesthetics Fine Herbal Cleanser at night.
Toner: identical Indie Lee COQ-10 Toner.
serum: I change my serum at night.I usually do at least Two nights herbivore psoralen extract (Retinol substitute), two nights Biossance Squalane + Lactic Acid Peeling Serum, Two nights of Follain Vitamin C Serum, And an overnight mask (usually Sunday). I also sprinkle some treatment/peeling, but not every week, more details are as follows.
Eye cream: This Biossance Squalane + Seaweed Eye Cream Very rich, creamy and moisturizing, which is why I like it at night. I think this has softened some of the lines around my eyes, which is a very obvious change for me.
moisturizer: I use alternately Guru Guru with Follin moisturizing maskBoth can be used with the above serum, if my skin feels dry or I have exfoliated, I will do Follin moisturizing mask (This can be overnight). If it feels normal, I will use GoopGlow lotion.
Mask and care
Overnight mask: My favorite overnight mask is The Glow Recipe Avocado Retinol Mask (Usually once a week on Sunday), Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask (May do this instead of avocado retinol), and Follin moisturizing mask (After I apply the serum).My skin always looks great the next morning Glow Recipe Avocado Retinol Mask I like that it is not super strong and my skin never feels dry or tight afterwards.
Exfoliating scrub: I like this Peeling and exfoliating microdermabrasion treatment From youth to people. It is very strong (for my skin), so I usually use it every other week. I then used a cream mask like Follain Hydrating.
peel: I like both GoopGlow overnight skin resurfacing with Dr. Dennis Gross peels daily. Again, these are very strong for me, especially in summer, you need to pay extra attention to the sun. I usually do it every other week. I will make a moisturizing overnight mask afterwards. They are all great, I think Goop is more powerful and effective, but Dr. Dennis Gross is a good choice, and the price is cheaper.
New face: I really like my NuFace When I become lazy and don’t use it, please note the biggest difference. I should start doing it in the morning because I am always too tired at night. I put it on my vanity, so I won’t forget it. If I use it all the time, it is a beauty tool and I will definitely see a noticeable difference.If you don’t mind, you can’t switch attachments NuFace Mini Edition It is a very cheap option.
