A/N: Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well. I apologize for being a little inactive in here, a lot has been happening and I rarely find the time to blog but I love blogging so I really want to make time for it and continue sharing my journey with you all.
I used to be really bad with maintaining my skin, i literally did nothing and I had acne for almost through 9th and 10th grade but after I visited the dermatologist and ever since my skin cleared out, I have been religiously taking care of my skin.
RULE 1: KEEP IT SIMPLE
In terms of the amount of products you use, the less the better. I use you 3 given products at all times and that’s about it. A good cleanser, toner, a moisturizer and sunscreen(before I leave my house) and I have been using this for a long time, sometimes I like to pamper myself so I use sheet masks or face masks which is good for your skin. If you are under treatment for any skin concerns, stick to your doctor’s recommendation. The easier your routine is, the more likely you will follow it.
RULE 2: FIND WHAT WORKS FOR YOU
What works for me may not work for you and vice versa, everyone has different skin and identify your skin type, whether it’s dry, oily or a combination and accordingly pick your products. Stick to the same products for a better result, I have observed that if we keep experimenting with skincare, it may lead to a breakout or an imbalance in your routine and change the texture of your skin. Most of my products are Korean, my mother bought a ton of Korean Skincare products when she visited south Korea in the summer but you can get a few Korean products on http://www.nykaa.com
RULE 3: Use ORGANIC AND NATURAL PRODUCTS:
You can literally find hundreds of natural face masks, soaps recipes online and see which ingredients will work for your skin tone and type. A lot of the brands are making a shift towards organic and sustainable cosmetics and even though it is slightly expensive, it is worth the splurge since there are no harmful chemicals being used and it can really do wonders for you skin if it’s going through a rough phase.
These were my golden rules for maintaining a skincare routine, let me know yours in the comments below. I would love to know what your thoughts are.
