Hello! I am in my early 20s and have been using skincare (and sunscreen!) since I was 15-17. I use a mix of Australian, European, and Asian (Japanese, Korean) skincare to help manage hormonal acne while trying to prevent skin irritation. I have had some retinol mishaps and irritation, so I am now trying to keep my barrier healthy and moisturised so there are no lasting effects.

My focus is on clearing PIE/PIH, smoothing skin texture, and evening my skin tone to look like a juicy muscat grape. At this point, I am diving into retinol for skin smoothing, acne care, and age prevention to complement my suncare.

I am also starting laser hair removal for paradoxical hypertrichosis on my lower face and neck - meaning no actives for ~6 days a month for at least the next 10 months (3 days on either side of treatments) and a focus on soothing and healing.
