Triggered by the IPL treatment sessions I’ve had recently, I’ve kicked off my skin care regimen into full-gear. More specifically, I’ve started using Retin-A (again). The gold standard for anti-ageing (and acne) that is proven by decades of scientific studies. Really long-time readers might remember that I used it regularly for years in my late teens to early-mid 20s.
I’ve only started to incorporate Retin-A a couple weeks ago but I don’t expect to see much difference. After all, I’m not using it to treat any existing skin issues — I’m banking on its longterm benefits.
Paul & Joe Beaute The Oil: I add a drop or 2 of it to the watery lotion.
Biore UV Athlizm Skin Protect Essence SPF50+ PA++++: I’m knee-deep in testing new sunscreens at the moment so what I use changes day to day. This was what I used at time of writing.
Cow Brand Mutenka Cleansing Oil (refill in an old Anna Sui pump bottle)
ROSETTE Gommage Moist (roughly once a week)
Paul & Joe Beaute The Oil (on drier areas and under the eyes)
Retin-A 0.025% Gel (about once every 2 nights or so): I have a prescription of it and I bought this directly from the pharmacy.
