Skincare Snapshot, February 2019

I get 3 sessions (spaced about a month apart) of IPL treatment roughly every 3-5 years to give my skin the freshest possible slate. Since I had a few post-pimple dark marks that I wanted to obliterate, I went in for my 1st session the end of January.

While I had no downtime save for some minor redness, my primary objectives after IPL (or any sort of chemical peels) would always be protect, moisturise, and soothe! These were all the skincare products that I’ve been using post-treatment. No experimenting, no exfoliating, and no potent serums — just a very pared-down routine using tested products that focus on the 3 essentials.

With American sunscreens, you can use them all day as long as you keep reapplying them every two hours. Is this not the case with everyday Japanese sunscreen? I.e., if I’m outside for a while and keep reapplying it diligently, is it still not okay? Is it that Japanese sunscreens don’t necessarily work for two hours of sun exposure, like American sunscreens guarantee?… Read more »
