What does your skincare routine consist of?

I'm still new to all this skincare stuff so my regime is pretty basic.

I wash my face in the morning with water and apply day cream (brandless, but does its job) after. Then make-up and all that stuff.

In the evening I wash my face with water again and apply this night cream from Van der Hoog (dunno the exact name). I'm still looking for a cleanser.

I also exfoliate with Freeman's sugar charcoal scrub weekly

1. hada labo's cleansing oil followed by clinique's acne solution's foaming wash. i only use the foam in the AM.  the cleansing oil isn't anything special, but it dissolves makeup and emulsifies perfectly and is cheap, so a solid buy. the cleansing foam is fine too, but for the price i won't be buying again. when i run out ill use cosrx's low ph cleanser.

2. PM, I'll use differin gel. i'm on my 8th week and so far i havent gotten any chemical burns or anything but i don't know if anything is getting any better. I have one tube left and then ill see if anything has improved. AM if my skin feels a bit congested ill use cosrx's 4% bha.

3. Cerave's moisturizing lotion. Guys. this is actually amazing. it doesn't have any fancy actives or exfoiliants, but it has hyaluronic acids and ceramides and is an amazing, solid dependable water-based moisturizer that you can layer depending on how much moisture you need.

 

my routine is pretty much bared bones right now because im testing differin gel, which by the way guys! if you're struggling with acne this might be worth a shot. the main ingredient is 0.1% adapalene, which used to be only avaliable through a doctor's prescription but just this year it was approved for over the counter. you can but this on amazon, target, Walmart and pretty much any place that sells drugstore skincare, but PLEASE if you do MAKE SURE YOU USE IT CORRECTLY! differin is very potent and if you use it incorrectly, best case scenario it's ineffective and worst case you get a chemical burn.

If anyone is curious and wants me to elaborate on how to use it I'd be happy to!

My skin is extremely sensitive and dry so I usually stick to natural ingredients (most store-bought products break me out). My skincare is almost 100% diy ;o; 

 

Cleanser: African Black Soap (or some honey & coconut oil) 

Toner: Green tea (brewed with Distilled water) & some Rosehip Oil 

Moisturizer: A mixture of Shea Butter, Rosehip Oil, Argan Oil and Hyaluronic acid.

 

Exfoliate using a rice, brown sugar, green tea and honey paste 2x a week 

Honey & olive oil Face mask once a week.

Sunscreen: I tried the Vichy Ideal Soleil sunscreen and I really like it, but haven't bought the full-size yet.

I'm into the Korean 10 Step™. It's only been three weeks and my skin is already so much clearer and calmer!

Under a spoiler since it's looong

Oil Cleanser: Klairs Black Deep Cleansing Oil 
Foam Cleanser: Neogen Real Fresh Foam Cleanser in Cranberry
Exfoliant: Either the Skinfood Black Sugar Strawberry Mask Wash Off or the Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Extreme Pads (as needed)
Toner: Son & Park Beauty Water. Literally my fav toner, I would bathe in it if I could and I'm never going to switch to anything else lol. It also works well to freshen skin, either as a mist or with a little cotton pad to do a mini cleansing in the middle of the day to remove dirt and particles
Essence: ENATURE Birch Juice Hydro Essence Skin.
Ampoules/Serums: SCINIC Honey All In One Ampoule and MIZON Original Skin Energy Hyaluronic Acid 76 Premium Hydrating Serum. I'd like to try some of COSRX's ampoules soon!
Eye Cream: Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream
Moisturizer: I haven't found a good moisturizer for me yet. I just use whatever samples I have on hand. Out of these, the Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream I'm probably most likely to purchase. 
Sunscreen: Missha All Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk SPF50+/PA+++

Surprisingly this doesn't take that long, maybe like 10-15 mins? I'll probably be switching to some Hada Labo cleansers and replace some of the pricier items with COSRX products since that would be more cost friendly:alpacaheadshake:
