I'm always blogging about new things but sometimes its the "every-day-products" type of posts that are the most useful. I've had several comments on my skin and questions IRL about the skincare I use, and here's where I spill the beans. In this post, I'd like to share with you what my skin has been loving lately for skin-protecting and blemish-minimising effects over the last few months, and I hope they would work for you too!

The day begins with a splash of cold water and gentle cleansing with La Roche-Posay Physiological Cleansing Milk. This good girl doesn't lather up nor suck out moisture from sensitive facial skin. After patting my face dry, I apply my day serum Clinique Smart Custom Serum to improve my skin's texture. This is followed by my sunscreen love LOréal Revitalift Laser Renew Day Cream SPF25 which applies like a dream and is easily and quickly soaked up by the skin. I then apply my makeup as usual.

Come evening when its time to remove makeup and prep for bed, I use a micellar water cleanser Bioderma Sensibio H2O on a cotton pad and gently remove my makeup. I do two full swipes of this to ensure my makeup is removed. I may also double-cleanse with La Roche-Posay Physiological Cleansing Milk if I'm not feeling lazy. Every other day I apply L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Laser Renew Peeling Lotion after cleansing to gently exfoliate the skin.

When it comes to skincare, I believe a good night cream or serum is one of the most important products to nurture and heal your skin overnight to prepare for the following day. I have been loving La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Serum as it absorbs so well on the skin. Moisturiser follows as I use La Roche Posay Posay Toleriane Ultra Overnight. I wake up with blemish-free well hydrated skin.

Use the pattern " Cleanser - Serum - Moisturiser " twice a day and you can do no wrong!

I know it may seem like a lot of products, but using the pattern "cleanser-serum-moisturiser" along with chemical exfoliation +/- La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo to target spots, has significantly improved the quality of my skin. My skin has survived suboptimal conditions and work-related sleep deprivation. You don't have to use the exact products I have here, but this basic regime really makes a difference. Try it!
