Skincare Snapshot, June 2019

Skincare Snapshot, June 2019

Here we are with June’s ‘skincare snapshot’.

A reader recently asked me about neck care. Like Caroline Hirons says, “Take it to the tits. Your face doesn’t end at your chin in skincare.” I think that’s very sound advice. For me though, the only two products that get regularly applied to my neck would be a very simply formulated moisturiser and sunscreen. The skin on my neck is very prone to allergic reactions — reaction sometimes appears in seconds and often lasts for weeks — so my skincare does end at my chin!

AM 🌞

Bifesta Foaming Whip Bright Up

SEKKISEI Lotion Excellent

Paula’s Choice C15 Super Booster

Junpaku Senka White Beauty Serum: I use this creamy serum as a moisturiser.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Shaka Fluid: I have to be truthful and say that this product managed to slip through the net because it was the only sunscreen I had on the table. I included it without giving a second thought and I didn’t want to retake the picture. There are definitely far more pleasant sunscreens on the market, but for in the UK or Europe, Shaka Fluid isn’t the worst option.

PM 🌛

MUJI Mild Gel Cleansing

Bifesta Foaming Whip Bright Up

SEKKISEI Lotion Excellent

Paula’s Choice C15 Super Booster (on nights I’m not using Azclear & Retin-A)

Azclear Action 20% Azelaic Acid Medicated Lotion (every other night): The tube slipped behind a bottle in the picture, but you can find it if you look hard enough.

Retin-A 0.025% Gel (every other night after Azclear): I apply this after the Azclear since it pills if I do the reverse.

so you use retin a and azelaic on the same night, every other night?

Octinoxate in almost all Japanese sunscreen; however, I’ve read that ingredient is a common irritant. I know that alcohol and parabens have a place in skincare formulations, so I was wondering if you also believe that octinoxate is used purposefully in a non-irritable manner in Japanese sunscreen formulations?
