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 🧐

Love: πŸ‡°πŸ‡· K-Beauty, 🎭 situational skincare, βš–οΈ biocompatibility, πŸ”„ advanced skin cycling, πŸͺΈ algae and plankton, πŸͺ† 7 skin method, 🏺face 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:πŸ‘Ž; 3 stars: mediocre; 4-5 stars:πŸ‘.

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

It's freezing outside. We've had temperatures ranging from -9 to 3 Β°C, and it's expected to stay this cold for some days. My usual hydrating routine isn't sufficient enough. I've observed that Hyaluronic Acid can be quite drying for my skin during freezing cold winters. This is very likely because the Hyaluronic Acid is drawing moisture from my skin instead of the air, in conditions where there is little humidity indoors (due to heating) and outdoors (due to cold air). As a result, I've switched to my skincare products that are free of Hyaluronic Acid until it gets a bit warmer again.
