How I prevent pimple/acne | Morning Skincare Routine

最近皮肤很乖,所以也常常被问到最近的护肤品到底是否有不同了。认识我的人也知道,我皮肤其实不是很差,但也不会说是特别好的。毛孔也属于比较粗大,眼袋更是超大的问题。可是去了一身美做了他们的indiba treatment(而且还是一次疗程),这几个问题也改善了好多,再加上自己用的护肤品也改变了,所以皮肤状况真的好了超多。这个routine 我用了差不多两个月,就算是好朋友探访也不会突然多了痘痘。重要的是过程也很简单,用的产品也不会对皮肤带来太大的负荷。现在就算是化妆,妆也特别服帖,超爱的。
I’ve been getting plenty of questions recently in regards to my skincare routine. I have to admit, ever since my Indiba treatment(I did a once off treatment), taking care of my skin is much easier. I try to keep it very simple and water based, mainly because I do not want to over stress my skin on skincare. I used to have a oily combination skin till I left to Perth, then it changed itself to dry combination and I’ve been stuck with it ever since. My main concern for my skin is usually my eyebags and also redness but I used to sometimes(esp the time of the month) get unwanted pimples popping up.
I’ve kept this routine for about 2 months(going 3) now and the results are so obviously working! I no longer really need to apply foundation when heading out, or powder but if I do apply it my makeup stay on my face for a long day too even without touching up.

通常一起身啊,第一件事当然是刷牙了,过后就洗脸。一大清早不太喜欢用对皮肤负荷很大的产品,所以自己偏爱用Aesop的洗脸霜。这个洗脸霜还有玻尿酸的成分,我超爱的。
I usually wakeup brushing my teeth, then I’ll proceed to cleansing my face. I do not like anything too heavy to start the day so I use my Aesop Parsley Seed Cleanser to start the day. The sales girl at Aesop told me there was hyaluronic components so I do enjoy massaging in the cleanser and leaving it on my face for a little while before washing it off.

过后就用avene 的神奇水喷脸啦
Then I mist my face with my Avene thermal spring water

我还会多做一步,就会用avene 水喷在 cotton pad 上,然后敷在自己的脸,放个几分钟让皮肤吸收下。
then I will spray some more on cotton pads, say about 3 large pieces and place them across my cheeks and forehead

大约放了十分钟(我会利用这个时间看一看电话),就会敷我在韩国买的IOPE 神奇水。
And leave it on for about 10 minutes while going through all messages that was sent overnight.
then onto the step that has done miraculous work on my face, my Iope Bio Essence Water

这还可能是我皮肤改善最大功劳者之一啊。我在去年去了韩国买了这罐toner 后,就几乎每天都会涂。效果真的好明显,毛孔收缩了,脸也亮了好多。
Ever since I bought this from Korea I’ve been using it non stop and the results have been amazing! My skins much clearer and pores smaller. I’m left a happy girl
过后就抹上自己喜欢的润肤霜就好了
Then I’ll just finish up my routine with my moisturizer, which is one of my fav moisturizer by far and I’m dreading to finish it because I can’t seem to find it anywhere here in Malaysia!

当然,好第一天的开始,绝对少不了一杯温开水~
Then head down for breakfast and always have a glass of water to kick start my day

Monthly Routine

就今年年头开始吧,我又跑回去一身美了,听说他家又推出了新的疗程,脸部刮痧也!当然是利用了适合的仪器和技术来刮痧了。
Anyways, that’s it for my daily routine, but ever since last month, I’ve been going to Esme for a Guasha(刮痧) treatment for the face and of course, with the right equipments and skills

刮痧的功劳我不必多说,但是脸部刮痧毕竟也比较新。我身体偏虚热,自己的脸也会冒出莫名的痘痘,尤其是在佳节时间,脸部就会常常搞抗议-.-。 就和身体刮痧道理一样,脸部会代表身体的部位,不痛则通,不通则痛的道理,你脸部哪里比较痛,就表示身体部位的循环就不是很好了
Yup, you’ve heard it right, I know Guasha is usually done on the body but if you think about it, it’s only normal to have heat on your face too! Especially after Chinese New Year(Darn those cookies) it’s normal to have pimples just waiting for the right time to pop up so it’s always good to just get rid of it before it does become a problem.
Like the body, face Guasha represents different parts of your body. So say if you feel particular painful on the forehead, it means parts of your body ain’t doing well so you should really keep an eye out!
这是我刮痧前的照片哦,是不错,但是也看得出皮肤也挺沉闷的吧
Anyways, this was taken before my first ever Guasha treatment! As you can tell, my skin isn’t looking too bad, but it is actually rather dull

就开始咯,你看看这个仪器,可以刺激80个穴位点哦。穴位通了,血循环自然会好,皮肤当然也会好。照片里的我已经是第二个疗程拍的照片咯,可以看得出皮肤明显亮了好多对吧
and let’s get started! Here’s the tool they use, and it is say to trigger to about 80 meridian points on your face! This will kick all those pressure points awake and revitalize your skin, giving you less acne, a more youthful skin, meaning less wrinkles too!Note: Photos from here are taken on the 2nd visit, you can already tell how much brighter my skin is compared to the first treatment

不只是这样,脸部刮痧也会让皮肤拉紧,提神。你看看左边的照片,我的左脸稍红,但也不至于太担心,因为会退得很快。可是左边的脸稍微提升了。效果最明显就是疗程过后的几天~
Not only that, the treatment will also leave your skin tighter. As you can tell from this photo, this is after the 2nd treatment and having the left side of the face done, you can see my face is slightly reddish, especially around the forehead. The redness goes down very quickly and you will be able to see the best results after a few days. You can also see that my face is slightly lifted on the left side as compared to the right!

然后一身美就会接下去做疗程咯,颈部和肩膀。你可以做全程按摩,就包括头部,脸部和肩颈,也可以选择只做脸部和肩颈哦。有兴趣的朋友可以说说我的名字,相信有优惠价格哦~
Then they continue on to the shoulder to finish the treatment. You can choose a full treatment, which includes the head, shoulder and face or just the face and shoulder treatment! Quote my name and have them give you a special price =)
当然,护理到最后一定会做面膜咯~
and of course, always finishing up with a cooling mask

就和按摩疗程一样,刮痧不是一次见效的疗程,可是每次疗程过后你会发现脸部肿胀问题也会少了很多,皮肤状况也会明显改善咯
Of course, like all massages and guasha sessions, you cannot expect your problem to just be solved overnight, it takes time but you know its good for your body because I feel my face is less bloated, much clearer after every session.
