While I have been blessed with semi-clear skin (thanks Mom and Dad), wearing makeup on a daily basis has given me quite a few nasty blackheads that I constantly struggle to get rid of. So after watching the Live Chat Q&A with ELLE beauty editor Emily Dougherty, I decided to take her advice and try both chemical and physical exfoliation and I think I finally found my perfect blackhead killer combo!
Remember the H2O Plus Sea Pure Cleansing Body Oil that I loved? Recently, I got to try out a few more products from the Sea Pure Natural Anti-Aging Skincare Line and below are my favorites.
Since November is National Healthy Skin Month, I want to start a series of skincare posts to promote the importance of being good to your skin.
Now I don’t believe in using a ton of products or spending hundreds to get healthy skin, but I do believe in splurging on the basics when necessary. So below is a humble list of products I have been using to keep my dehydrated combo skin in best condition.
Claiming to be a safe alternative to harsh laser resurfacing, Origin’s newest Brighter By Nature SPF 35 Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer is packed with a chock full of exotic ingredients like Palmaria Palmata (a red seaweed), Turkey Tail Mushroom, Ascorbyl Glucoside (Vitamin C derived from Sea Algae), Japanese Basil Leaf, Peony etc. to fight existing spots, exfoliate, repair, moisturize and prevent future discoloration.
When I first found out Boscia is launching a new Luminizing Black Mask, I was *thrilled*! After all, my all-time favorite black facial mask, MAC Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask, was limited edition and I am running low on my backups and dying to find a replacement.
Proper cleansing is the first step to clear skin, which is why I have been practising the Asian Double Cleansing routine for over 10 years now. The routine involves using two complimentary products, normally a cleansing oil to dissolve makeup and sebum followed by a creamy/foamy soap to remove residue and gently exfoliate. I have tried all kinds of products out there and my newly discovered Kanebo Sensai Silky Purifying Cleansing Oil and Silky Purifying Creamy Soap, are handsdown the best!
