SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR MY ACNE PRONE SKIN

by - October 17, 2020

 Assalamualaikum. Hi.

As promised in THIS post, I'm here to write about my skincare routine. I have combination skin where I have oily T-zone and dry cheeks and chin. My skin is also super sensitive and acne-prone. If you have similar skin type with me and wish to try any products that I will mention later, please read more about those products especially the ingredients. Also please remember, products that work on me don't necessarily work on you even though we have similar skin types. If you tried them and it doesn't work, don't be sad and frustrated for too long. Keep on searching okay. You'll find skincare that suitable for you eventually. And I think I've found an okay-ish skincare routine for me.

Now, here's my skincare routine by following the order. Oh, I apologize for the bad quality pictures below. Hahaha. I thought the lighting was okay when I took those pictures but when I put them here, now realize how crappy they are.

MORNING ROUTINE

1. Hada Labo Hydra & Whitening Face Wash Super Hyaluronic Acid
I was all about hyaluronic acid before. I see hyaluronic acid, I buy. Hahaha. Now the only thing in my routine that mentions hyaluronic acid on the packaging is this cleanser. I like this cleanser because it doesn't make my face dry.

2. Caver Nano Ag+ Wash 60ppm
This was prescribed by my doctor to me but she said I can continue using it as long as I want. This is actually nanosilver spray that has antibacterial properties so it is good news for your skin and bad news for the bacterias causing the acne I guess.

3. COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
This one was suggested by my doctor. I previously use SOME BY MI Snail Truecica Miracle Repair Serum but it does nothing to my skin. So I change to this one. It does hydrate my skin and that's about it.

4. Kiehls's Super Multi-Corrective Cream
This is my favourite moisturizer ever! I did a review about it HERE so go read it.

5. Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Aqua Gel SPF50 PA++++
I like the texture but I love Dr KO sunscreen texture more but I hate Dr KO sunscreen metallic cap when the coating came out and stuck to my face. That's why I change my sunscreen to this one. Until Dr KO change their crappy packaging, I think I'll jump from one sunscreen to another until I found my next favourite. This Kiehl's sunscreen is okay but in my opinion, it's not worth the price tag.

After slapping all of those things on my face, it's makeup time. Concealer, lip balm and lipstick on lazy days (read: almost every day) or no makeup on weekends except when I go out.

NIGHT ROUTINE

Onto night routine.


1. Heimish All Clean Balm
I love this balm a lot. I didn't do double cleanse before. Well, I tried with Simple Hydrating Cleansing Oil last year but I hate the smell and the feel of it on my skin. Not to forget it also made my skin became oilier. So I stop double cleanse because I was too lazy to experiment with another cleanser. Until my doctor suggested me this balm and it was love at first use. Hahaha. It is recommended for people who use heavy make up. I don't do heavy makeup on daily basis (refer above) but I still use this. It cleanses and hydrates your skin at the same time. I usually use this during my evening shower. Ooh, I tried Kiehl's oil cleanser sample too but this one is better in my opinion.

2. Hada Labo Hydra & Whitening Face Wash Super Hyaluronic Acid
I wash my face using this and following by other routines only when I'm about to go to sleep.

3. Caver Nano Ag+ Wash 60ppm

4.  SOME BY MI AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner
I use this every other day because it is a chemical exfoliator and it is not good to chemically exfoliates your skin every day. I like this toner because not only it make my face feel fresh and clean from dead skin but it also reduces blackheads and whiteheads.

5. COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

6. Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream
The name of this cream really terrifies me. Hahaha. I bought this because the SA at Kiehl's IOI City Mall said my favourite moisturizer (refer above) was already discontinued because they are going to come out with better formulation for that particular cream and she suggested this one for me. I don't see any visible result yet from this cream because I only use it during the night for now.

The reason why I only use the above cream during the night.

7. The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Moroccan Argan Oil (with a twist)
BEHOLD MY MOST FAVOURITE PRODUCT IN MY ENTIRE ROUTINE. Hahaha. I was planning to do a separate post to review this product because it deserves a special place in this blog but yours truly is so busy nowadays. I'll write a little bit about it here and make a full review post later if I have the time, alright. So this is my skin holy grail. The name is The Ordinary Argan Oil but mine is not ordinary at all because I add something special to this oil. Hahaha. I added essential oils from Young Living making it my own beauty serum. The essential oils that I added to this are Frankincense, Lavender and Copaiba. I think I'll stop writing about these oils here or else it will become one long paragraph. I promise I'll write a separate post soon.

So that's all for my skincare routine. I hope this can help you in a way or another. Just leave a comment if you have any questions about any of the products I mentioned above.
