My #asianskincare routine, in this order, dependent on the time of day. Some steps left out because the photo limit is 10. 1. At night, double cleanse, starting with the #allcleanbalm by #heimish. It’s important to use an oil based cleanser first to dissolve the makeup and/or sunscreen you put on your face. 2. I use #perfectwhip foaming cleanser by #senka, which is a #shiseido brand. This removes the residual oil based cleanser and traces of dirt and makeup the oil based cleanser didn’t remove. 3. I exfoliate with #cureaquagel a few times a week as necessary. I find that I have a lot of dead skin (I guess I have a high skin cell turnover rate) and this is AMAZING at removing it. My face is so soft and smooth afterwards and it’s cool to see the dead skin pill up lol. Exfoliating makes it easier for your skin to absorb the rest of the products you apply to your face. 4. I use the #innisfree #supervolcanicporeclaymask a few times a week to deep cleanse my pores. It’s great at pulling out sebum and dirt for oily skin types. 5. I use the #etudehouse #wonderpore #balancingtoner to lower the pH of my skin after using the basic (alkaline) Perfect Whip foaming cleanser. The ideal pH of skin is slightly acidic at around 5. The more basic your skin, the more likely bacteria will thrive on it, leading to comedones and/or rashes. 6. I use #5lanc #mippunamakeshousui #hydratingtoner for oily skin. It claims to refresh and shrink pores, but it’s a nice splash of hydration. 7. I use #mizon #blackcleanuppore #serum. It claims to minimize pores and blackheads. I stand corrected, as I said I don’t use salicylic acid, but this serum has #salicylicacid in it. It’s thinner than my next step, which is an #essence so I use it first. 8. I love #cosrx #advanced96snailmucinpoweressence #cosrxadvancedsnail96mucinpoweressence. Snail mucin is exactly what it sounds like: snail mucus. It’s amazing for dark spots and healing of skin. It’s very soothing. #snailmucin is one of my favorite ingredients. Love those snails 🐌 9. I seal all the moisture in with my #farmstay #snailmoisturesoothinggel at night. It does just what it says. 10. I put #scinic #snailmatrixeyecream under and on my eyes.
