Facials

Okay, if there is one thing I love doing is facial steaming. I bought one facial steamer from Amazon and at first I didn’t like it and thouht I made a mistake of buying it. It was a mistake but not because I bought it, it was because I used the wrong water. Haha! I overlooked at what water you’re supposed to use. NOT tap water or spring water, but use distilled water. No wonder it started bubbling and spitting!

I researched how often you should do facial steam and you shouldn’t do it all the time because it can also do harm on your skin.

I like to do my facial steam once a week and do sheet masks afterwards. I get my husband to do it, too, even though he doesn’t want. Haha! I also use Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream after the sheet mask without wiping out the liquid. Leaves your face nice and smooth.

I also use Vivanaturals Charcoal Masks that I also bought from Amazon (I swear Amazon has become everybody’s shopping centre!). I love how cool it feels when you first apply it and it leaves your face nice and smooth after. Don’t forget the Rose Quartz Facial Roller and Gua Sha while you have your sheet mask on.

I love the facial roller because not only it drains toxins from your face and neck buy it is so relaxing.

I also bought some for my Mom but I got her a different kind of sheet masks and I got her a Jade roller and Gua Sha.

I would love to know your skincare routine and what products you use! Are you also using a facial steamer or use only hot water and towel? Either way, it gets the job done!

Here are the links of the products from Amazon I’ve mentioned:

Skincare

What is your go-to skincare routine? Honestly, I have very sensitive skin that I’m afraid to use anything on my face. I’m so afraid of getting breakouts from skincare products.

I had my share of acne problem when I was in my early 20s. Although it wasn’t severe (thank goodness!), it was still embarrassing. It was mainly caused by stress from when I was still in college. I would get big pimples and I was so bothered by where it was appearing… under my nose! Ugh!!!! Seriously, because it’s right there and there was no way of hiding it!

A friend of mine recommended to make an appointment with an acne doctor. It’s a good thing I went because he prescribed me ointments and he injected my pimples. A painful pinch but it wasn’t so bad.

At that time, I used Noxema and Cetaphil and I also used a moisturizer. None of those helped me. In fact, I was getting more breakouts. The doctor advised me to use Dove soap because it’s inexpensive and it’s gentle on the skin. It worked along with what he prescribed me.

Now that I’m in my late 30’s (I know, right?), I still get breakouts every now and then. There are times when my skin is so nice and clear. There are times when it’s none stop breakouts.

My favourite skincare to use now is Ponds face wash. I love that stuff! I was really hesitant about using it the first time because of breaking out. But now I have to use it!

I do use moisturizers again and I use Tatcha – The Dewy Skin Cream and Caudalie. For night time face wash, I still stick with either Ponds or Dove original.

I would love to know your skincare routine, what products you use and what are your thoughts about it.
