Skincare Suggestions and Discussion

Customised skincare Routine Part 2 ft Cosrx, Purito

This post is a continuation of the Customised Skincare Post Part 1, and while writing this post, I realised it’s been a month already! Wow! I wish I was not locked out of my own website for the past couple of weeks. It’s like the door of your own house somehow lost the keyhole! Gosh! Anyways, in today’s post, I will sharing customised skincare routine for various skin types that have skin issues like Blackheads, Whiteheads, and Pigmentation and anything around it. I promise that I will upload Part 3 which will be the last part of this series, within this week itself.

Customised skincare Routine

Skin Type: Combination Skin

Concern: Whiteheads & Blackheads with texture on skin: Your skin has bad water-oil balance and a lot of congestion. With the following skincare routine, I am sure your skin will be back to a normal state very soon. One thing I want you to keep in mind is if you are exfoliating very often reduce it to weekly 1-2 times and check if just in case you are using too many exfoliators at the same time.

Summer Skincare Routine:

The goal of this routine is to clean your pores while maintaining skin hydration and at the same time keeping skin calm. You can click on each product to read the detailed reviews or watch youtube videos.

In this video I have shared different types of AHA and BHA exfoliators for each skin type and how to use them to get the best results

Skin Type: Combination – Oily, acne-prone

Concern: Prevention of cystic-acne and shrink large pores: When it comes to cystic acne, I will insist that you first check your diet, avoid high intake of spicy food, sugary food, dairy and avoid mangoes in any form. Focus on a clean diet and most importantly try to stay away from stress. Saying all this from my personal experience. Some products that I am sharing below have helped me a lot in treating the papules and small cystic acne.

Summer Skincare Routine: You can add more products as per the necessity of your skin, but this should be your basic routine to overall keep your skin dewy and healthy this summer. You can click on each product to read the detailed reviews or watch youtube videos.

Night Routine:

  1. Banila Co Clean it Zero
  2. Cosrx Low ph good morning Gel Cleanser
  3. Cosrx BHA blackhead power liquid (weekly 1-2 times)
  4. Innisfree Green tea balancing Skin (layer 2 -3 times)
  5. Cosrx Oil-free Lotion with birch sap
  6. Jumiso AC spot cream (spot treatment for rising acne/ pimple)

In this video shared products to Reduce Pores on different types of skin

Skin Type: Dry Skin

Concern: Acne Scars, lack of hydration & Moisture: One tip that I want to share is going low on exfoliation and refrain from too many actives, use just 1-2 actives at max in your routine. This Customised skincare Routine goal is to have hydrating products and a lot of calming ingredients.

Summer Skincare Routine: In case if you are finding the routine bit too rich for day time, you can skip the Snail essence or Cica balm before using sunscreen.

3 very commonly available ingredients you can use to brighten up dull skin and fade acne scars

Skin Type: Oily and Sensitive

Concern: Acne, Hyperpigmentation, Dark spots with a goal to achieve clear healthy glowy skin. Since you have a sensitivity issue as well, avoid products with too many oils and Essential oils. Less is fine, but try going for the no EOS products.

Summer Skincare Routine: This is a basic routine that you should be following for your skin. If your Oily sensitive skin permits you can also use Cosrx AHA BHA Clarifying Toner at night instead of Soon Jung and use a hydrating sheet mask weekly once

Morning Routine:

  1. Inkeylist salicylic Acid Cleanser
  2. Etude House Soon Jung Toner
  3. By wishtrend Vitamin 75 Cream
  4. Purito Comfy Water Sun Block
Products you should be using to treat and prevent pigmentation

Skin Type: Oily Acne Prone

Concern: Redness & Texture: your concern tells me that due to excessive oil in your skin you have used many drying products/actives on your skin. First of all take a step back from active ingredients, exfoliating and Drying products, and instead focus on calming and hydrating products. Don’t worry products below are lightweight and non-sticky.

Summer Skincare Routine: Since your skin is irritated, I have added skin-calming lightweight products. As your skin heals you can start using actives slowly after a month.

Morning Routine:

  1. Etude House Soon Jung Cleanser
  2. Etude House Soon Jung Toner
  3. Innisfree Bija Cica Gel
  4. Purito Comfy Water Sun Block

Night Routine:

  1. Banila Co Clean it Zero
  2. Etude House Soon Jung Cleanser
  3. Cosrx Original Clear Pads (Weekly 3 times)
  4. Etude House Soon Jung Toner (layer 2-3 times)
  5. Innisfree Bija Cica Gel
  6. By wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream on irritated Red spots and textured spots.
