This is what I'm testing RIGHT NOW.

My skincare routine for :

  1. Water Rinse
  2. Beauty of Joseon Sunscreen
  1. Water Wash (If I didn't use SPF that day) or Farmacy Green Clean Cleansing Balm (if I used SPF)* 
  2. URIAGE Bariederm Cica-Cream (on my chin only as a barrier for POD)
  3. Curology 
  4. Paula's Choice Resist Hydrator

    * (on makeup days, I may use Bioderma Micellar Water before the cleanser)
Products I get from Amazon:

  1. If you use an alkaline soap, anything with a ph above 7 then it helps to balance that with a sligtly acidic toner. I use 1 teaspoon of organic lemon juice dilluted with 1/2 a cup of water. I dab on with a cotton wash cloth and refridgerate the rest. Sometimes if im not wearing makeup i will leave it on all day and sometimes i rinse it off after my shower, especially if I will be in the sun. After trying everything on the market for over 40 years my face has finally found peace. There are too many false claims on products, too many harsh and toxic ingredients too! Some of the face products over the years did real damage to my face and the worst were the ones dermatologists gave me. Keep trying. Kat

  2. Hi,
    I just wanted to thank you for this blog and the plethora of information. I was just wondering, what products could I use to dimminish my acne scars? (I derma roll ocasionally and use rosehip oil, glycolic acid and Retin-A).

    Thank you!

    1. You're using the products I'd likely recommend already :). If your scars are hyperpigmentations, you can also add products to your routine that target skin discoloration (vitamin C, hydroquinone, etc). Depressed or raised spots, aka proper acne scars, are harder to treat at home. They often require more aggressive treatments like peels, laser treatment, and fillers which should be done under the care of a dermatologist or facialist/esthetician.
