A long time ago, on a campus not far from my workplace, the name Bioderma Sensibio read like French gibberish to my lost eyes, and my favorite Yyredo was a carne Asada flour tortilla. There were so many things I didn’t know about beauty, as evidenced by my jaded approach to skin care: morning tretinoin recipe (?!) when I thought before class, a mini pond cream for dry skin for practical makeup and budget purposes and a bottle of Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil Ready Permanent from my study, Bud. It’s as deep as my Routine. It was only when I found my way to an internship at ITG that my intensive skin care course began. Hello World. And goodbye to the microbead cleaners and the three-step Acne Kits that are now dusting under my mother’s stairs next to the prince and my Spanish textbook IV. superior there than on my face, she deserves more! In fact, here”s what we all deserve to use during our formative years:

A purifying threesome that does not betray you

I admit that at university, taking off my makeup at night was never my forte. Maybe my negligence was a way to protect myself from the burning pain of rubbing the facial cleanser into My eyes without Neutrogena oil. If only I knew That wiping off makeup with cleansing oil and/or micellar water followed by a creamy conditioner is one of the best ways to take care of my skin and keep it clean. For my acne-prone friends, swap the creamy cleanser for a Non-drying salicylic acid medicated cleanser and thank me afterwards.

A Toner that actually does something

Instead of trying to wrap my head around what a Toner is and taking toners with ambiguous results, I would have liked to have chosen directly a Toner that would suit practically everyone. The good old P50 is less of an investment if you buy the Travel Version, but it’s worth its weight in gold. Work on their compatibility by initial diluting them with water. Even if you don’t, the little guy will still hold you.

Targeted Serums

When entering the world of serums, look for serums with a clear hero mixture — you need to know what you are getting into. To hydrate yourself, try a hyaluronic serum (or any one) from the Hada Labo range of moisturizing products. To lighten dull skin and dark spots, try a vitamin C serum from Rohto, Timeless or Mae-Love. To keep the pores clear and eliminate post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation spots from previous breakouts, enter an over-the-counter retinoid such as Differin or A313. Do you have a skin problem that I didn’t mention? Go to the list of ink keys or to the ordinary one, and I promise you that you will have something for your needs.

A Dream Cream

As a student, I hung around a small jar of moisturizer so that I could reapply it all day long. Just any other sensible person…get a superior moisturizer. But not me! Do not succumb to the same fate — choose a reliable moisturizer from Vichy or Weleda. Everything from there will keep your skin hydrated and soft throughout the day. Hydrated skin is happy skin.

A sunscreen separate from your makeup

Because it’s more effective this way! Whether you choose a reef-resistant chemical or mineral because you have baby’s sensitive skin, just make sure you have one. Shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg either.

Treated skin

Not necessary, but not necessary. Consider this a boost for your Skin Care routine. The CosRx Snail Mucus measuring essence brightens and moisturizes; Marula oil keeps the skin softer for longer; and Manuka honey zaps pimples, kills bacteria and smells good in the process.
