My Facial Skincare Routine

I don't have a flawless skin. In fact, I still have pimples sometimes and my skin is quite dry. But, many people keep asking me my skincare routine and also tips to fight acne. That's why I decide to write this post and hopefully this will be a good source of information for you. 

DISCLAIMER : everyone has different skin type and sensitiveness . Not all of the products I use / recomment will suit / work on your skin. The key is to KEEP TRYING to find the right product for your own skin. That's what I do to fight my acne problem back then and till now to keep improving my skin. 


MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE

1. Wash my face with Avene Soapless Foaming Gel

I've been using this product for 2 years. My skin was still acne-prone back then. It's soapless, which is why it's suitable for my sensitive skin. Before I started using this product, my face's skin would be very dry after I used other brands' facial cleansers.

Where to buy? I always buy this in Guardian / Watsons in Singapore. Sadly, this product isn't available in Indonesia. So everytime I go to Singapore, I always stock up this product. I can use 1 of this for 8-12 months because I only need to squirt a little (around 1 drop) to make it foam. 

2. Morning moisturizer + sunscreen : Avene Light Hydrating Cream


It has SPF 25 and absorbs quickly and doesn't make my face oily, but I like to wait around 5mins before I apply make up.

Where to buy? This product is available in all of Avene's booths in Indonesia. I usually buy this at Guardian , Central Park Mall - Jakarta
Price? Around IDR 400.000

 Other products I sometimes (NOT EVERYDAY) use in the morning 


I use this to replace my Avene Light Hydrating Cream only when I am going out under the sun (because it has higher SPF). It's a gel, so it doesn't make my face become too oily compared to other sunscreens. For daily use, I don't use this because it's a bit more oily than my Avene. It can be used for body too!
 
Where to buy? As far as I know, it's available in Hypermart and Guardian
Price? Around IDR 30-35.000? (I don't remember the exact price)  

2. Avene Spring Thermal Water Facial Spray


I use this product whenever I feel my skin is dry. I can apply it before make up or even after make up. It's good to soothe irritated & acne-prone skin too. When I had many acnes back then, I'd spray this to my face everytime my face's full of redness. 

Where to buy? This product can be found at Guardian, Century that carries Avene's products (usually they're big malls in Jakarta)
Price? Almost IDR 200.000 for the medium size. I don't really remember. Please check the price to the store to make sure. 

NIGHT SKINCARE ROUTINE

1. I'll make sure to remove all make up & clean my face with Bioderma / Biore/Shikada/Pond's Facial Wipes



Bioderma is a very good make up remover for sensitive skin. The only thing I don't like from this product is that it's not as practical as using facial wipes to use as I have to use many cotton pads to remove my make up. 

Where to buy? All Guardian that carries Bioderma (usually big malls in Jakarta)
Price? Around IDR 250.000

 
This is my FAVORITE facial wipes. It's very soft and works really fastttt to remove all of my make up. The only negative point that it's quite expensive for one pack of facial wipes. So I only use this if I had a thick make up on.

Where to buy?  I buy this at Guardian Central Park, but I saw this product in Guardian Taman Anggrek Mall and AEON Mall BSD. (usually big malls in Jakarta)
Price? Around IDR 97.000

 It's affordable and quite good. I recommend you to use this product before you wash your face (don't care wheter you have make up / don't wear any make up, there mustttt be dust on your skin because of pollution!!!)

Where to buy? It can be found in any supermarket like Hypermart, carrefour, and minimarkets like Alfamart, Indomart. 
Price? Around IDR 20.000



This works the same like SHIKADA. I recommend this to use if you have acne-prone skin / currently dealing with acne problem.

Where to buy?  It can be found in any supermarket like Hypermart, carrefour, and minimarkets like Alfamart, Indomart. 
Price? Around IDR 30.000

2. Wash my face with Avene Soapless Foaming Gel (pic please see above, at morning section)

3. Moisturize my skin with JOSIE MARAN ARGAN OIL 

 

It's quite moisturizing (not enough for my skin tho) and can heal acne at the same time. I've been using this for 2 months, but I want to try Tarte's Maracuja Oil. I'm still trying to find the perfect moisturizer. 

Where to buy? I bought it online from lovetoshop-online.com
Price? IDR 280.000 

2. TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL Ultra Rich Eye cream

 
I use this to reduce my eyebags & dark circles. It's quite good.
Where to buy? Too cool for school - Mall Taman Anggrek, Jakarta
Price? IDR 100.000 (bought it on SALE. lol)


Other products I sometimes (NOT EVERYDAY) use at night

1. L'occitane Precious Night Cream



It's one of the best moisturizer I ever tried, but it's my dad's and it's quite pricey. So I don't use this everyday. 

Where to buy? L'occitane stores. Central Park Jakarta, Senayan City Jakarta, etc. CLICK HERE to find the nearest store
Price? IDR 1.100.000  

2. Mario Badescu Drying Cream and Pond's Overnight Pimple Gel 



For bumps (acne which is still under the skin) I use Mario Badescu
For redness, pimples, white heads, I use Pond's.

I use these to heal my pimple / acne (I still have it sometimes, esp. during my period time). They all work great and it takes 1-3 days to heal the acne / pimple.  

**For Mario Badescu --> Where to buy?  I bought this from http://lovetoshop-online.com/
Price? IDR 290.000
**For Pond's --> Where to buy? It can be found in any supermarket like Hypermart, carrefour, and minimarkets like Alfamart, Indomart. 
Price? I don't remember. 

3. Korean Facial Masks

I buy them randomly and depending on my mood. I usually buy them from any korean make up stores like Etude, Face Shop, Tony Molly, etc. They all work great. I use this mask 2-4x a month.

OK! THAT'S ALL ABOUT MY SKINCARE ROUTINE! 

PLEASE don't ask me this question :  
Ci kalau beli di kota slain Jakarta / tmpat yg cc mention di atas / online ada ga ya? Buat kulitku cocok ga ya?
because this is what I'll answer you  : 
-Sorry I don't know. Because I live in Jakarta & biasanya aku belinya di tempat2 itu. Try googling / search in instagram. Example : #jualarganoil #jualbioderma , etc. 
-Tiap orang cocok"an kl sama product skincare. Belum tentu produk yg aku blg bagus bakal bagus jg di kamu, ataupun sebaliknya. Jadi kuncinya ya coba2 dulu aja sambil cari2 yg paling pas buat kulit kamu. 

For my NEXT POST, should I write about DIY Face Masks or TIPS TO FIGHT ACNE?
Let me know your opinion below. THANKSS!! :)

Graduation

They were the reasond behind my smile, laugh, and happiness in senior high school. I feel lucky to have these girls as my best friends who understand my characters and personality. We'd spend an after school hang outs to eat our favorite foods like bakso, bakmie, and go to McDonalds. They also knew really well what subject I used to doze off / sleep during the class.

Untitled

All of us go to different universities and take different majors. We have different hobbies, different styles, different personalities, but I'm one of those believers who believe that best friends who have differences can still match very well.

Untitled

Of course there were times where we got annoyed and angry to each other, but well I realized that people couldn't always please each other all the time, and it's up to us about how we're going to handle the problem. Accepting, forgiving, understanding, and moving on to the next chapter.

"But your best friend is still your best friend. Even from half a world away. Distance can't server that connection.
Best friends are the kind of people who can survive anything.
And when best friends see each other again,
after being separated by half a world and more miles than you think you can bear, you pick up where you left off. After all, that's whhat best friends do."

These days I've been staying at home exercising in the morning / afternoon. I gained weight this year, so I am so determined to lose my weight :( . I've lost 2kgs in 1 week by exercising everyday, drinking lemon water every morning, eating steamed chicken breast (not everyday), and not eating rice. It's still hard to do clean eating tho, since my tongue always craves for fatty food like nasi padang, chocolate toasts, noodles, or even bubble teas! T_T. I'm going back to Jakarta this Friday and I'm gonna have a 3 days diet juice plan (not detox, I'm still allowed to eat my meals as usual). I'll tell you about it if it works! hehe ;)

Gratitude

DSC_1310

Sometimes, I have too much thoughts in my mind till I don't know how to start writing it. Sometimes, I have too much wish, till I don't know what to get. Really, something which is too much isn't good at all. I've been reminding myself to take everything slowly but sure, not to be greedy, not to be too emotional, and enjoy life. 
"Be thankful for what you have, you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever, have enough."

I've been wearing my new bag a lot lately. At first when I got this bag, I wasn't sure if I could wear this often since the color's quite unique. It's between blue and green... (Turquoise). But it turns out that I can mix and match it with many outfits especially with this pair of sneakers from New Balance. I got it at Parkson (Lippo Puri Mall) for 40% off!! :P
