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: 🇰🇷 K-Beauty, 🎭 situational skincare, ⚖️ biocompatibility, 🔄 advanced skin cycling, 🪸 algae and plankton, 🪆 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:👎; 3 stars: mediocre; 4-5 stars:👍.

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

Skin Cycling days 2 and 3 'Hydration, Recovery & Restoration'. Regimen for super smooth, clear, plump, bouncy and firm skin with a radiant glow ⭐️ Maintains a healthy skin barrier.

The 2024 spring skin cycling routines do not contain retinoid days. Since I want to avoid products that cause photosensitivity, I exclude retinoids and BHAs (and even AHAs) from March/April-Sept/Oct. Not risking hyperpigmentation like last year. It simply took too long to get rid of it.

Some steps are optional, some are on rotation - depending on skins current needs. Not using any sort of wipes, pads, or facebrushes.

This routine has had positive effects on my Rosacea and Psoreasis. It includes many calming, soothing and moisturizing goodies. Good product combo, no pilling, no irritations or other issues
