Yes, I'm (30s) slightly obsessed with skincare. I enjoy it as part of my selfcare regimen and of course because of the fantastic results. However, it took years of try and error to figure out what works for me and what doesn't. Psoreasis and Couperose (Rosacea) didn't make the journey easier. And still don't...

Yet, there is so much lovely skincare to discover! I like trying out new brands and products, but only one new at a time to avoid disrupting my current skin condition. Happy I achieved something that varies between Mochi, Honey and Glass Skin. (Which also depends on my physical and mental well-being, sleep, nutrition, stress and hormonal cycles.)

Avoiding: cotton/bamboo/textile pads, face wipes, face brushes, microplastics, and some questionable ingredients ๐Ÿง

Love: ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท K-Beauty, ๐ŸŽญ situational skincare, โš–๏ธ biocompatibility, ๐Ÿ”„ advanced skin cycling, ๐Ÿชธ algae and plankton, ๐Ÿช† 7 skin method, ๐Ÿบface oils for my dry skin

While I prefer products without silicones, I do use some that contain them, particularly sunscreens, moisturizers and makeup.

Ratings: I am rating products for what they aim or claim to do and not for what I wish them to do. 1-2 stars:๐Ÿ‘Ž; 3 stars: mediocre; 4-5 stars:๐Ÿ‘.

Everyone's skincare journey is a personal experience - what works for me, might not work for you, and the other way around.

Advanced Skin Cycling days 2, 3 and 4 'Retinoids'. Routine for super smooth, clear, plump, bouncy and firm skin with a radiant glow โญ๏ธ Maintains a healthy skin barrier.

Winter routine with an extra dose of hydrating, moisturizing and nourishing ingredients.

This is an extensive routine, started small and built-up over time. I love layering toners and essences, in total up to seven skins. Some steps are optional, some are on rotation - depending on skins current needs. Not using any sort of wipes, pads, or facebrushes.

โœ…๏ธ Routine has no negative effect on my Rosacea and Psoreasis. All products work great together, no pilling or other issues. โš ๏ธ Evening routine: Be careful with Retinol and don't begin with 1% strength. Start with something around 0.3%. โš ๏ธ Morning Routine: contains brightening products with high percentages of vitamin C. I reccomend beginning with less strong stuff.
