Since I’m turning 18 next year, what better way to take care of my skin than to start a skin care regimen. The products mentioned here are student-friendly or budget-friendly since I, myself, am a student. Please enjoy. 🙂
First things first: (I’m the realest jk)..Cleansing
One mistake that people tend to do is use harsh cleansers to clean their faces. Not only do harsh cleansers strip the skin of its natural oils, but also they tend to dehydrate the skin. This is why I chose a mild and gentle cleanser from Shiseido.
Moving on to step 2: Toning
After washing your face, the PH balance of your face is now distorted. Toners were made to bring back your face’s PH level. I chose the Etude House wonder pore because I was captivated by it’s 10 in 1 benefits. (Because honestly, who doesnt want that?)
Third step: Essence/Serum
Essences and serums are great for moisturizing the inner layers of the skin. Here I chose the Etude House Collagen Moistfull essence. You can pick any essence or serum you like depending on your skin’s needs.

Fourth step: Moisturizing
Moisturizers are used for.. well keeping your face moisturized. (Note: even oily skin needs moisturizers) I opted for a natural moisturizer so that my skin would not absorb all those harmful chemicals. (Chemicals=damaged skin)
Fifth on the list: Spot reduction
Since I’m a normal teenage girl going through her teenage years, I am bound to have zits here and there. A natural way to cure pimples or acne? Why not Human Nature’s 100%Tea Tree Oil.
This is extremely important because sun+skin+without spf=SKIN CANCER. (ANNDD NOBODY I REPEAT NOBODY WANTS SKIN CANCER.) I haven’t found a good enough sunscreen for me, so I’ll just leave it blank. Let me know if you guys have any sunscreen suggestions. I can’t wait to try them. :):)😘
