MY SKINCARE ROUTINE IN 2020

IMG_20200218_104027.jpg

Hi there guys! Today I want to talk to you a little bit about skincare and how 2019 changed my approach to it. Before 2019 my skincare routine was almost non-existant, the little care I gave to my face consisted on removing my make-up, washing it some nights, and if the stars aligned, I moisturized, also, if I broke out my approach to getting rid of zits consisted on being agressive, you know, pinching and my good ol’ friend benzoyl peroxide.

¡Hola bebés! Hoy quiero hablarles un poco de skincare y cómo el 2019 cambió mi acercamiento al mismo. Antes de 2019 mi rutina de skincare era casi inexistente, el poco cuidado que le daba a mi piel era desmaquillarme, lavarla algunas noche y si las estrellas se alineaban, usar humectante, además, si me salían granitos lo que hacía era super agredir a mi piel pellizcándola y cubriéndola de peróxido de benzoilo.

But as the year went by, I started to deep into the skincare world oh my was I hooked, I got introduced to Korean Skincare techniques that are more about nourishing and gently caring for your skin, being soft with it and not attacking it with harsh mechanical exfoliators or western facials, I started to get more into chemical exfoliation and I’m here for it. As months went by I started seeing the results in my skin, and people started noticing, I had a glow on my skin. Now I follow my skincare routine religiously every morning and night, and it’s become one of my favorite parts of the day.

So, what does my skincare routine look like in 2020?

MORNING:

Wash my face with: Youth to the People Super Foods Cleanser.
Toner: Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner.
Serum: This varies, but most of the days I’ll use vitamin C.
Moisturizer: I altern between Neutrogena‘s Hydro Boost and FAB’s Ultra Repair Creme depending on the weather.
Sunscreen: LaRoche Posay Anthelios 50 SPF.

DURING THE DAY:

I apply sunscreen every 2 hours.

NIGHT TIME:

Wash my face with: Youth to the People Super Foods Cleanser.
Toner: Neutrogena AHA+BHA Toner.
Serum: During the night I also mix it up but I mostly use Retinol 0.5% by The Ordinary, EUK 134*, Retinol + Peptides from Valjean Labs.
Eye cream by Korean brand Glamfox.
Moisturizer: I altern between Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost and FAB’s Ultra Repair Creme depending on the weather and what my skin needs.

OCASIONALLY:

Every 10 days or so I use the AHA+BHA peeling solution by The Ordinary to exfoliate.
Once a week I use Versed’s The Shortcut Overnight Peel to exfoliate as well.
I’ll do a facemask about once a week, I make sure to always keep a stash of those and I’ll pick it depending on what my skin is needing at the time, some of my favorites include Tonymoly and Neogence, and collagen eye patches are lifesaving.

Conforme pasó el año, comencé a sumergirme en el mundo del skincare y me encantó, me metí en las técnicas del skincare Coreano, que son más acerca de nutrir y ser gentiles con la piel, de ser suaves y no atacarla con exfoliación mecánica que es muy agresiva o faciales occidentales que lastiman mucho la piel, empecé a entrarle más a la exfoliación química y me encanta. Al paso de los meses empecé a ver los resultados en mi piel, y la gente empezó a notarlo, mi piel estaba luminosa. Ahora sigo mi rutina de skincare religiosamente mañana y noche, y se ha vuelto mi parte favorita del día.
