Especially now, guys, because my skin improved so much compared to before. I’ll show you some photos here for you to see my face situation before. It is one of the products that helped to fade my acne scars.
And it’s not that expensive. Hi everyone, welcome back to my channel. It’s me, again, Divine. In today’s video, finally, I’ll be sharing with you my current skincare routine. It is one of your most requested videos, and it’s been a while since I updated what my skincare routine is.
Especially now, guys, because my skin improved so much compared to before. I’ll show you some photos here for you to see my face situation before. The situation of skin now is that I don’t have breakouts anymore, but it has some redness.
But my acne scars faded compared before So my skin type is oily and acne-prone skin. My skin is very sensitive. I am very careful when trying out products because it easily breaks out. My skin is easily affected by dark spots, as in, just a little acne on my face even just a small pimple, a severe acne scar will be left on my face.
So today, I’m gonna share with you my nighttime skincare routine. I will tell all my secrets in this video. But before we start, just a disclaimer, I’m not a dermatologist. What works for me may not work for you, and vice versa, guys.
But hopefully, this video could help those who struggles with acne like me. So if you wanna know the products that I used to achieve my skin now. Then please keep on watching. First step is oil cleansing.
And this is super important for me because everyday, I put on sunscreen, and sometimes, I put on makeup so I need to remove that before I sleep. So oil cleansing helps to balance the oils in our face.
And while the oil melts the makeup on our face, it also helps to heal the acne that we have on our skin. This is one of my all-time favorite. This is the iUNIK Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil. This can remove makeup effortlessly Also, it can remove mascara.
Even the waterproof ones could also be removed. So I use two pumps for my whole face when I have makeup, and when I only apply sunscreen, maybe, I only use one and a half pump. This product has a short ingredient list, which is excellent for people who have sensitive skin.
It is cruelty-free and vegan, as well. One of the nicest ingredients in this oil is the Calendula extract because it is anti-inflammatory, so it is good for those with acne prone skin like me. When I use it, I don’t need to use any makeup remover because it can remove everything in one step.
I really like this product. Before, I always use balm cleanser. Those balm type makeup removers I also really liked those, but I tried this. Until now, I haven’t stopped using this because my skin really love this product.
But, of course, even if you used this, you also need to use a facial wash. So next is I wash my face with a cleanser For the past few months, I’m not very particular when it comes to facial wash. As long as it doesn’t cause any breakouts, and it does not have a strong scent, I will use it because it’s not the leave-on type of product that I will let it stay on my face, so any cleanser is fine for me.
As long as it’s not that fragrant, and it is mild So here are the cleansers that I usually apply for the past months. The most important is no potent ingredient, and it does not cause skin breakouts. Those are the most essential ones for me.
Don’t worry, guys. I will make a separate video. I’ll show you what my favorite cleansers are that are suitable for oily and acne-prone skin. After cleansing, I’m gonna move onto toner, and I use this one.
This is the Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner. It is one of my holy grail products. As in, my skin “drinks” this product. My skin is in love with this essence toner. It calms and plums the skin. It’s effect is like smooth and fresh.
So ever since I used this toner, I noticed that it helped my skin to glow. My skin became fresh. When it comes to texture, it’s like an essence type of toner. It doesn’t leave any sticky residue on the face, so even if you have oily skin, this one is nice.
There’s no alcohol, no paraben, or any nasty stuff that might irritate your skin if you have a sensitive skin. So all of the ingredients in Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner, all of them are clean. I also saw in the website of YesStyle that they have a mini version, so if you want to try it first, you can get that one.
Maybe, that’s less than 180 pesos mini size, so you can try that out first before you buy their full size. After that, I apply my COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. Guys, this one is a must have for me.
It is one of the products that helped to fade my acne scars. So this product also boosts the moisture level Do you know your skin that feels super soft and supple? It also gives a radiant glow to your skin, as in.
It’s texture is very slippery, so two pumps is enough for the whole face, and this one will really last you for a long time since I’ve had this one for a long time, but here. I have consumed nearly half of this.
It does a great job at restoring the moisture in my skin. It is really glowy guys, as in. You can use this before makeup, too, because I do that, as well. It really helps with acne scars, and to those who have damaged skin.
Promise, you need to try this one. I highly recommend this one. This is a game changer for people who have damaged skin. And if you want a plump and radiant skin, go and try this one. Next step is I apply my iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum.
So this one is a double functional product It is good for whitening and caring or treating for wrinkles because it has a niacinamide. So that is its effect. One of my favorites in this product is its texture because it’s very hydrating and very moisturizing, but it doesn’t give that sticky feeling it’s not heavy on the face even if you overlap or layer other skincare products, it doesn’t add up to the heaviness.
So I started using this when I had so much breakouts. As in, I didn’t know what to do with my face, so this is one of the products that I added to my skincare, and this one has an anti-inflammatory. Maybe that’s why it’s effective to people with acne-prone skin.
So for me, this one helps with my skin barrier and because it has niacinamide, it also helps to lighten my acne scars and the dark spots left on my face. And then after that, I apply my Vitamin C serum.
I have here my two favorites. You already know this one, my Dear, Klairs. Also, this is the new one, guys, that I added to my skincare routine This is the Rohto Melano. So if you are already a subscriber, you know that I often mention this one on Instagram or my other skincare videos.
So I tried to find another Vitamin C that I can also try, and a little less pricey one compared to Dear, Klairs. This is what I found on YesStyle I also really like this product. So if you want a more affordable version of Vitamin C, you can try this one.
The packaging of this Rohto is better compared to Klairs, for me, because the product is more protected. Since Vitamin C, the issue with its packaging is it changes its color since it is Vitamin C. But yeah, it’s a bit of a struggle to use this one compared to this because this is easier to use.
But for me, the product will last longer if the packaging is like this because it is not that exposed. Dear, Klairs Vitamin C is great if you are a beginner in using Vitamin C. And you don’t want to surprise your skin in using Vitamin C.
This is super mild, but I swear, it is super effective considering you consistently use it. And this has Centella asiatica so it is great when calming your skin if you have an acne-prone skin. It is mild, but it definitely works in fading acne marks.
When it comes to consistency, Rohto is lighter compared to Dear, Klairs. Both of these products work great on my skin. As in, both sped up the healing of my acne marks. I am very consistent in using Vitamin C because I really want to improve my skin tone and acne marks.
And I also use these Vitamin C that I use whenever I dermaroll. Next time, I’ll share with you how the process works, how I do dermarolling so, you know, you can do it the right way if ever you are interested.
After that, one of my favorite step is putting this one. This is the The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid. This is really one of my favorite products. This is my second bottle, and a little goes a long way with this one.
But for me, I cherish this product so sometimes I put more than enough. This gives a boost of hydration, and it’s very smooth on the skin. To those unfamiliar with hyaluronic acid, because this is a popular ingredient now, but others don’t know how to use it properly.
This ingredient attracts moisture in our skin. So from the air, it draws moisture. Its proper usage, after you put toner or essence, you can apply this, and then after that, you need to top it with a moisturizer.
It can’t be used wherein after this, you will put on sunscreen. It can’t be used like that because it attracts that moisture in your face, so we need to lock it with a moisturizer. It prevents the loss of moisture on your skin, so it can also be used for those with dry skin.
And it’s not that expensive. The Ordinary products are low-priced, but of course when resellers are already selling, they are quite expensive. But the original price of The Ordinary is super affordable.
For my moisturizer, I use this one. This is the Aestura AtoBarrier 365 Lotion for sensitive and dry skin. I have oily skin, but this worked for me. This is recommended by dermatologists here in Korea.
This brand specializes in medical beauty that provides solution for different skin problems. The reason why I liked this one is because it helped with my skin barrier. If you have a broken skin barrier, this will help to strengthen it.
It’s a bit on the heavier side, but it is silky, once applied. It is not that heavy on the face. At that time when I broke out too much and my face felt so itchy and irritated, I did not use any other product, just this because I was too afraid to use other products.
So I only used this for one week, and it removed the flakiness, and my skin calmed down, and I felt like my skin barrier got better when I used this. This is unscented and it is perfect for people with sensitive skin and dry skin.
Compared to other moisturizers, I know this is not super affordable. But you need to invest into a good skincare just to help your skin. Compared to buying products that are inexpensive but you bought multiple times already and then it caused breakout to your skin so you need to invest in skincare, as well.
Because when you buy any product, the outcome of the price would be the same. So yeah, I suggest that you find a product that although a bit pricey, as long as it works for your skin, it’s okay. So another product that I have been using recently is this Rice Cream by I’m From.
This one is also great in protecting your skin barrier. Guys, if you have acne-prone skin, you need to focus first is to have a great skin barrier. Because you know, if your skin barrier is weak, you are a little more prone to breaking out.
This controls sebum, it nourishes my skin, and it has a brightening effect. I love its consistency, I feel that it’s like a yogurt because it is so silky then it is light on the skin. It is fragrance-free, and it has Yeoju rice.
Yeoju rice helps to lighten up your skin, brighten up your skin. It is a great moisturizer, especially if you have dry skin or in the colder weather, so I love to use this. When you apply it on your skin, it looks like it’s melting, and it is not heavy.
As I’ve told you on Instagram, when I used this, the next day, my skin became very nice. The application of makeup was wonderful. My skin becomes super plump and moisturized the next day whenever I use this one.
And guys, when I have active pimples, I use my Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot. This product helps to reduce inflammation, it can remove the bacteria in your pimple. While it is on your face overnight, it disinfects your pimple.
This one bottle is almost fully-consumed because I use it so much. Whenever I feel like there is a pimple coming out, I apply it right away. If you have noticed, I put a lot of layers on my skin, and I have oily skin, yes, but the more you apply a moisturizing product or hydrating products on your skin, that would be more helpful because if you have oily skin, why you have oily skin is because your body feels that you don’t have enough oil on your face, which is why it produces more oil in your face.
So when you apply any hydrating products on your skin, of course, they won’t produce as much oil on your face. So you know that, you got that? We need to moisturize even if we have oily skin. Always remember that, guys.
Because me, now that I do these skincare, I’ve felt a better texture of my skin, not much breakout, and as you can notice, I don’t have an active acne right now. Really, no pimple lasts on my face, so I feel like this skincare that I do is super perfect.
And if you have noticed, most of the products that I’ve mentioned, usually there is no scent. That’s really what I’m looking for because it is better if the product has no scent since I have a bit of sensitive skin, it’s better for me to not have ingredients that could trigger a breakout.
