How long does your skincare routine take everyday? How many products do you use on a daily basis? Are they effective? I like asking these questions and checking out people’s skincare routine.
And I’d love to share with you my skincare routine too.
My morning routine is generally quick and easy as we’re always in a rush to school. I wash my face with Kose Sekkisei Supreme Washing Cream. Then, I wipe my face with Beaute de Kose Ultimation Clear Softener Softening Serum (wow, what a mouthful!). The purpose of this serum is to remove accumulated keratin cells and prevent clogged pores.
Next, I apply my toner – Kose Sekkisei Supreme Refining Lotion, followed by Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion for hydration. If my face is dry, I’ll dab on a small amount of Kose SEKKISEI SUPREME Moisturizer. But most of time, I skip my moisturizer because Hada Labo SHA is really hydrating.
Do you notice something important is missing from my morning routine? Yes, you’re right! It’s the sun block. My face doesn’t like having sun block on it, and it tends to get oily too. Thus, I use Kose Sekkisei Supreme Make-Up Base SPF25/PA+ that helps to even out skin tone as well as blocks UV rays and prevents dark spots. I finish off with Kose Sekkisei Supreme Powder Foundation SPF20/PA++.
As you can see, I’m using a lot of Kose Sekkisei Supreme products. They’re really good, I must say.
My nightly routine takes a longer time as it’s the most important step. It sets the tone for a good night’s sleep and a glowing skin the next morning.
I remove my make-up with Kose Sekkisei Supreme Cleansing Cream, followed by a face wash with Kose Sekkisei Supreme Washing Cream. Then I apply Kose Sekkisei Supreme Refining Lotion as my toner, followed by SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. Occasionally, I’ll apply some whitening serum on my face. I’m currently using Kose Shirosumi whitening serum to take care of my age spots.
I’m obsessed with pore-refining and anti-aging products at the moment. I apply Vitacreme B12 and SK-II Skin Refining Treatment on alternate nights. I finish off with SK-II Advanced Eye Treatment Film to smooth and hydrate my eye area.
Phew, that’s quite a lot of stuff. Ask me again two months later, I’ll probably have a different skincare routine. I’ve to remind myself to spring clean my bathroom more often to get rid of old products that I’ve stopped using. And most importantly, make space for more new products! Ha!
