SKINCARE, shall we?!
My skincare regimen has always been very simple. Splash of water, face wash, pat some lotion and done. Yes, Asian women are stereotyped to have flawless, non-aging, wrinkle free skin but, my careless years of not wearing SPF and taking a few minutes two to three times a week to do simple facials has taken a toll. After a night of sitting in front of the mirror and studying my face for 30 minutes, I knew it was time to give my face some TLC. After trying a variety of different brands I have finally found the winners! I started using Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Lotion and Cucumber Herbal Toner about 2 months ago and seriously I swear by these two products! Toners are usually alcohol base and way too harsh for my sensitive skin so I stayed away but, toners get rid of all the excess dirt after face washing. The cucumber in this toner also calms my skin and leaves it feeling so fresh. The best thing about the Ultra Facial Lotion is that a teeny tiny bit goes a LONG way. Twice a week I’ll mix two drops of Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil essential for that extra boost of moisture. Another great product rich with omega’s and vitamins essential for They are a must have especially for the drier winter season. I use the Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque 2-3 times a week. Usually masks are goopy, sticky and such a hassle but this goes on thin and super easy to apply and take off (*Tip* to get a deeper pore cleanse; soak a small face towel with warm water, ring out all the excess water, place the warm towel on your face for 1 minute. This will allow your pore to open up for the ultimate facial experience!)
