updated Winter skincare routine

updated winter skincare routine:
hard to stick to just one brand mainly for skincare routine – loccitane and la roche posay – french beauty brands.
Experiment french brand VS kbeauty brands. I missed using my kbeauty products! Which are not available in stores apart from Nature Republic and Cosrx in Boots – so I always have to order online from yesstyle for good price. I have found a few UK based online stores but their pricing/discounts are not as good compared to yesstyle.

I found that the loccitane precious cream left a bit of a tight feeling on my skin, and the overnight reset serum didn’t feel as moisterising compared to other serums I have tried.

So in order for my skin to feel better and more moisterised without being oily I have gone back to using Iunik propolis vitamin synergy serum + nature republic super aqua max fresh watery cream for the day time for the past 3 days.

There was a 15% off sale + addition 2% code which I used. Black Friday means biggest discounts of the year.

The rest are all new products I am excited to use for the next summer: Missha artemisia essence, klairs gentle black deep cleansing oil, tony moly chok chok green tea watery skin, and klairs soft airy uv essence.

spot treatments + new skincare routine

I have oily acne prone skin – I am also in my 30s now, (36 in March). I treated myself to some loccitane goodies back in September and have been saving it to use. Now we are entering another national lockdown and it is a new year I thought I may aswell start a new skincare routine!

the serum (for antiaging and revitalising skin) and oil to milk cleanser (for first step cleansing) are new loccitane products I have never used before and I excited to try.

I have used the immortelle foaming cleanser along with the precious cream the past 10 years now on and off since I was 25.

for spot treatment, these are my trusted products I have used before – la roche posay serozinc toner spray the past few years and cosrx AC collection ultimate spot cream has been a recent discovery the past year
and here is my new skincare routine for the Winter months

I will update you with my progress! Hopefully it should help improve my skin condition – my skin hasn’t been the best this Winter due to the cold elements but also heating indoors to keep warm! Also it was period week last week which means hormonal acne causing spots! But I hope this week the redness improves and spots go away. I may have been overexfoliating lately and not moisterising my skin enough – I forget it is not summer so I don’t need to usr my foreo luna mini 2 so often as before.

oily/acne prone skincare – winter routine

It is now day 7 of my new skincare routine for winter. I had an acne flair up a week ago when I was on my periods.

After only 5 days my skin has calmed down, redness is gone and I only have a few whiteheads left! I am so glad I switched up my skincare routine – as prior to this new routine my skin had looked bad for at least 2 weeks: (maybe it was a reaction to one of the face masks I was using most likely over using or wishtrend mandelic acid toner, or somebymi serum aha/bha/pha serum and the past few days my period week)

Switching to new products which contain centella asiatica, snail mucin, tea tree oil and salicylic acid has helped – my skin loves these ingredients in particular. Also panthenol is great too.

I think:

the purito oil cleanser – great at removing makeup and first cleanse

the cosrx low ph gel cleanser (has tea tree in it) has helped to calm and balance my skin.

Im from mugwort essence helping to sooth and calm the redness + the benton goodbye redness centella gel (has centella asiatica in it).

purito snail serum (madecassic acid, hyaluronic acid, and panthenol) has helped to strengthen my skin barrier.

cosrx salicylic acid daily cleanser is a great exfoliant can use it 3 times a week, (maybe even 5 days depending on how sensitive your skin is)

and the cosrx AC collection ultimate spot cream.

my top 4 products out of that:
》》cosrx salicylic acid
》》purito oil cleanser
+ cosrx low ph gel cleanser for double cleanse
》》benton goodbye redness centella gel / or cosrx AC ultimate spot cream
》》Im from mugwort essence / or purito snail repair advanced serum

acne flair up – time for a new skincare routine

it is period week so I am using cosrx acne patch stickers and I decided to switch up my skincare routine. I have oily, acne prone sensitive skin.

I hope that my skin will improve soon and that this new routine suits me for Winter. Otherwise I will go back to my old routine.

Firstly double cleansing with Purito oil cleanser + Cosrx low ph cleanser (opened a new bottle). Then every other day using Cosrx Salycilic acid instead for second cleanse.

Toner – I have decided to use this time is Etude House wonder pore as I opened it early this year but haven’t used it much.

Essence – Im from Mugwort Essence meant to be good and calming for skin especially acne flair ups will try use it and I need to finish this bottle been using it on and off (I think normally I prefer Cosrx advanced snail 96 mucin power essence)

Serums – Purito snail repair advanced serum. Again another product I have opened but only used a few times. Trying to use up some products before they expire.
For the evening – Urang Pink Everlasting Ampoule. Good for anti-aging have been using this for the past few months, need to finish it before it expires.

Acne cream – Cosrx AC collection ultimate spot cream
and also moisteriser – Benton goodbye redness centella gel. Used this during the summer now back to it to see if it helps with calming my acne (usually normally use Nature Republic Super Aqua mas or Cosrx oil-free ultra moisterising lotion with birch sap)

I hope this works!
