Today, we’re talking about something close to my heart. Skincare. My mother started me on skincare since I was 16. Something very basic like cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I didn’t realize the importance of it, until I started working. I’m never without my sunscreen and I apply eye cream every morning and night without fail. I believe in taking care of our skin inside and out, and good skin is the best foundation ever. True enough, some are luckier than others, and finding the right product for our skin involves trial and error.

Here are some of our favourites.

AM:

1. Wash with Derma E Brightening or Soothing cleanser
2. Apply Derma E Soothing Serum
3. Top With Derma E Hydrating Night Créme and Hydrating Eye Créme
4. Top with sunscreen if I’ll be outside for more than 15 – 30 minutes

PM:

1. Wash with Derma E Hydrating Cleaner or Gabriel Organics White Seaweed Calming Cleanser
2. Apply Sonia Kashuk Radiant Oil or Fresh Seaberry Oil, though I often use Ole Henriksen Truth Serum and Oil at this stage.
3. Top With Derma E Hydrating Night Créme or Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair and Derma E Firming Eye Cream
4. 3x a week I use Peter Thomas Roth UnWrinkle Pads and once or twice a week I use my Clarisonic

I also try to use a mask weekly. It’s usually Fresh Black Tea or if I’ve slacked on exfoliating, GlamGlow’s original mask!

I’m always testing new products, so my skincare products are always changing. However, my routine is always the same.
Morning: Cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer, eye cream, sunscreen
Evening: Makeup remover, cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer, eye cream

I love my Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum and a recent find in Biotherm – the Life Plankton Essence  has replaced my toner. I’m not too fussy about my cleanser as long as it’s not drying and eye cream + sunscreens are absolute musts! Also, regular exfoliating keeps the skin healthy, as well as drinking more water 🙂 For reviews of a particular skincare product, just go to the “Skincare” tab above and scroll through the reviews!

Morning:

I generally just wash my face with The Face Shop Herb Day Cleansing Cleansing Foam (in Aloe), pat on my M.A.C Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Eye Cream under my eyes and then put on my Reversa UV Anti-Spot Lightening Day Cream. If I’m going to be outdoors for a long time, I’ll use my La Roche Posay spf 60 cream instead.

Night:

I take off all my makeup either using my Olay makeup remover wipes or Garnier Cleansing Oil, followed by a thorough washing using my Foreo Luna and La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel for sensitive skin. Then I put on either a combination of this super potent serum that Ive been using from Superpeptides.com and jojoba oil mixed in with any non-spf moisturizer I have lying around, or just the serum.

  • I’ve been asked this question recently, and I just totally blanked out. Like you, my face is an experimental ground for all kinds of skincare, and something or other is always changing. So…. :PP OHH!! But I just started on the Life Plankton Essence (whole time thinking Lily Lily Lily!!!) and YOU ARE SO DAMNED RIGHT!!!

    • Lily

      Right? My mom always asks me why I’d use my skin to be guinea pig, but I was like, mom, I CHOOSE whatever skincare to try. Those I’m not confident with, I decline. LOL!
      And yes, the Life Plankton Essence is AWESOME! Glad you like it too 🙂
