Morning Skincare Routine

Hello everyone! :) I am overwhelmed with your messages and friend requests on Facebook since the day my coffee post went viral. Facebook post link: 

I will be having a separate post on this. :) Thank you so much! :) Our community got bigger. :)

Most of the messages I received are asking about my morning skincare routine. I have published my nighttime routine, if you haven't read it yet, here's the link: Nighttime Routine Revealed. To answer those queries, I am now sharing it! :)


I have 3 steps in maintaining my skin flawless:

Cleanse -> Moisturize -> Treat

CLEANSE

I make sure to start my routine with cleansing of face. This helps in removing the dirt and residue from the products I have used the night before.

1. Orange Peel & L- Glutathione


A specialty soap that combines the nourishing properties of Orange Peel Extract witht the whitening power of L-Glutathione. It deep cleanses, unclogs pores, calms acne prone skin, lightens dark spots, and brightens overall complexion.

I was a Kojic user. I had to give up after I discovered this no ordinary soap. I don't expect much whitening on this product. What I like most is that it lightens spots and marks on my skin. :)

About the peeling claim, I haven't noticed any. Maybe it's micro-peeling which is way better. :)

Take note that it STINGS on the first week of use. But the result is definitely worth the pain. :)



Price: 150 Pesos 
Available at Watsons nationwide. :) 

2. Dr. Kauffmann IR


Every time I see whiteheads on my face, I use Dr. Kauffmann after Orange peel. This skin-germ protection soap helps fights and prevents skin infections caused by germs.

It has Dimethyl Phenylbutanol that inhibits bacteria, and Sulfur that kills and inhibits growth of bacteria and promotes shedding off of rough, thickened skin caused by skin infections.



I gently massage this on face and leave it for 1-2 minutes. Take note that you will feel a stinging sensation, specially if you have acne.

Price: 50 Pesos 
Available at Watsons nationwide. :) 

After cleansing my face, I feel like removing more impurities and want to tighten pores; I use toner. :) 

(You may just choose one product from the two below)

1. Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Cooling Toner


This toner helps eliminate blackheads and prevents new ones from forming. It delivers instant cooling sensation! :)  


**Apply with cotton balls :)

Price: 352 Pesos 
Available at Watsons nationwide. :)

2. Skinmate Facial Toner


This is one of the cheapest yet effective toners I have tried. It claims to whiten skin color from Vitamin B formula and moisturizes naturally with the help of Squaline Oil. It is a good combination of Orange Peel for they help lighten pimple marks and scars. :) 

**Apply with cotton balls

Price: 70 Pesos 
Available at Watsons nationwide. :) 

MOISTURIZE

Since the products I use tend to dry my skin, I need to moisturize a lot. Though I have combination skin meaning I have normal to dry and oily parts on my face.

1. Skinpotions Tomato Serum


If you are an avid reader of my site, you know how I love serum, particularly this Tomato Serum. Here's the link in case you want to read: Skin Potions Review

Price: 320 Pesos
Available at Skinpotions stores nationwide or thru their online shop. :) 



2. Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel


My T-zone area is usually oily while the rest is dry to normal. I don't feel using moisturizer since it makes my face more oily. Most of the time, my face develops whiteheads when using this. To keep my face hydrated, after applying serum, I use Aloe Vera Gel.

Aloe Vera Gel is a miracle product since you can use it to all parts of your body.

Price: 200+ per tub 
Available at Nature Republic stores nationwide. :) 

TREAT

There are times that I have breakouts. When those days come, I ask help from this hero. :) 

1. Fucidin


Fusidic acid is an antibiotic with powerful antibacterial activity against a number of gram-positive organisms. Staphylococci, including the strains resistant to penicillin or to other antibiotics, are particularly susceptible to fusidic acid.



Besides pronounced antibacterial activity against the majority of organisms responsible for skin infections, Fusidic acid also possesses unique ability for penetration  to the focus of infection, even when applied to intact skin.  

This is one of the best topical creams I have tried. This has also been praised by the Queen of All Media, Kris Aquino, in one of her blogs. :) Indeed! It is also helpful when you have insect bites or burn.

Price: 328 Pesos for 5g 
Available at Watsons nationwide. :) 

There you go guys! :) I hope you learned something from my morning routine. Again, everything is trial and error. Remember that what works well on me might not help you, vice versa. :) Also, like what I've said on my viral post, kindly look at your lifestyle. Cheers! :)
