Daily Ritual. Double Cleansing.

Part 4:

2 is Better than 1

Yes! 2 is always better than 1.

Double cleansing is important! Whether or not you have makeup on or no makeup on. 

Koreans have beautiful skin. Skin that is so mochi-like. Skin that lits from within. Looking so clean and fresh.

Having their skin is like a dream, a dream that never seems to come true!

When there’s a will, there will always be a way.

Besides sweating the shits out of the pores, washing away the TOP layer of shits is also important!

Use an oil, milk or cream cleanser for the 1st Cleansing. 

Why? Because double Cleansing means stripping that protective barrier. And to prevent yourself from doing that, go GENTLE!!

After the first cleanser, use an acid cleanser. Besides Cleansing your face, it will also helps to maintain the pH!

Short and Simple. 

2 is Better than 1

1: Washing away the TOP layer

2: Cleansing your skin

Daily Ritual. How to Wash our Face?

Part 3: Cleansing for Acnes

Google and you will find all sorts of cleansers available. Wonder what is best for your skin? 

If you’re facing acne problems, here is how:

Start GENTLE! (However wrong it sounds, it is indeed the best way of clearing acnes)

Always use a cleanser mild enough not to aggravate your skin! You may feel that your skin isn’t well cleansed, BUT it is SUFFICIENTLY cleansed. 

Over Cleansing can strip the protective barrier of your skin! Making it more prone to acnes.

And that’s something all of us do not want!

Maintain the pH!

As scientific as it sounds, it is an important factor to keep your acnes away!

A Low acidic cleanser (pH 3 to 5) will help to kill the acne causing bacteria. Keeping an acidic environment on your skin also prevents acne from spreading!

Know your needs! Know your cleansers! 

Recommendation: CosRx Low Acidic Good Morning Gel Cleanser

Daily Ritual. Dirty Pores.

Part 2: Dirty Pores

Sweating in contrast to most believes, is actually beneficial to clearing the pores! At the same time, we are keeping ourselves fit and healthy. It’s a Win Win!

Cleansing/Double Cleansing cannot guarantee a 100% cleanliness of my skin. Many times, unknowingly touching of our own skin, actually pushes the dirts deeper into our pores. Not touching our skin is good, BUT  NEVER touching our skin is near impossible!

For instance, when comes to applying skin care, “patting” the products in, is how we are pushing the dirts deeper into our pores!

That doesn’t mean, rubbing our face is a better alternative.

So, DIRTS in pores … … …

Getting them out is no easy feat!

Sweat is produced from our facial glands which are found beneath our skin. When sweat is produced, they act as a lever to push the gunks out of our pores!

There’s no free lunch in the world! You need to pay a price to get something.

I guarantee you, that this price to pay will be worth every single strength and determinations you’ve put!

Daily Ritual. Is There Time for them?

“Beauty is not in the face; Beauty is a light in the heart” – Khalil Gibran

Indeed. Unfortunately, not caring how we look is not an easy task.

We live by each day, judging people on their appearance. After all, “the first impression counts.” From making new friends to getting a job. APPEARANCE is the number 1 factor.

I was and currently still am an acne sufferer. Having to meet up with people, going for interviews were always a hassle.

“I wish I can go out barefaced.” Can We???

My face is filled with scars, pigmentations and pimples. And I am so sick of them!

I wish I didn’t have to waste time doing a long skincare regiment just to keep my skin clear from acnes. Sadly to say, a long skincare didn’t help either.

Wasting $ after $, on products that said to have an effect in keeping acnes away. Taking in my daily nutrients, loading myself with fruits, vegs and even drinking 8 to 12 cups of water daily. Adding on with daily supplements from omegas to zinc.

So WHY THE HELL IS MY SKIN STILL THE SAME?

And WHO THE HELL HAS the TIME to keep to their regiment??????

We all have lazy days. We all have sick days. And we all have “OT Days”.

If 24 hours a day doesn’t guarantee us with perfect 8 hours of sleep. Do we even have the time to do a perfect regiment to take care of our skin?

Overnight Masks and Daily Sheet Masks are definitely helpful, BUT I have FREAKING SENSITIVE SKIN!

Comodones and Acnes are like my brothers and sisters. They visit me EVERYDAY, and the Mother of these SHITS never seem to stop giving birth!!!

Visited Dermatologists after dermatologists, some got my situation worst, while others were only temporary. Ate 1 year supply of Accutane, cleared my acnes by the 3rd month, skin was clear throughout the 1 year. Skin maintained clear for 3 months after Accutane and “SURPRISE!!!!!”

Acnes: “HEY BITCH I AM BACK!” … … …

Definitely not as severe. But HELL~~~~~ My face is still covered with zits.

Hormonal Imbalance???!!! Genetics???!!!

So I Guess I will have zits throughout my life then. Unless I have my DNA manipulated, in a way.

Daily Ritual? HAAAAHHHH!!!

You Decide.
