For anyone curious, this is my current skincare regime! I’m still trying to perfect it, so please don’t take this as medical advice or my saying that this is the ultimate skincare routine. I’m sure that I’ll be editing and tweaking things, but I just wanted a page for people to keep track of my skincare set-up at any given moment if they so desire.

Last Updated:  4/3/2017

First, a summary of my skin type & concerns:

  • I am in my late twenties so I’m trying to be proactive about working anti-aging ingredients like Vitamin C into my routine.
  • My skin is oily, acne/clog-prone yet also sensitive and easily dehydrated if I use products that are too harsh. This skin type isn’t particularly catered to in the USA, which is why a large portion of my skincare items are from Asia – it seems my skin type is much more common over there.
  • I do suffer from hormonal breakouts during that time of the month, almost exclusively on my jawline. Green tea is also a hormonal acne trigger for me when I drink it, however I can use it topically just fine.
  • My skin totally sucks at naturally exfoliating itself, which leads to clogged pores, dullness, and any blemishes/hyperpigmentation taking FOREVER to fade if left to their own devices.
  • While I have skin that seems to be naturally sun resilient (I’ve never had a sunburn and I don’t tan/freckle easily), I prefer not to take risks – especially now that I’m using retinol – and use sunscreen daily, even when I’m not planning on going outside.

Hopefully that should give you some insight into my skincare choices!
