Hello! Happy sun shiny bright morning today!
How is your summer? Is it as hot as mine?
What do you do in summer? Getting tanner than before? Dull? Dusky?
Oops, it might be my own skin.
So, what should I do to deal with it?
Eventhough facing 'new normal' life is not 'back to normal', my life is just an ordinary housewife life. Busy at home, taking my daughter to 'school', shoping groceries to traditional market, attending pengajian at mosque and etc.
Inside and outside house I will always 'meet' the hot summer sunshine. So I have to keep it healthy to keep it's beauty.
First of all, the bottom line is, sunscreen is alway on!
I started regularly wearing sunscreen about 3-4 years ago, after I got terribly dull skin until my husband asked me to see dermatologist. From the doctor, I brought some skincare. She pointed one important thing: sunscreen.
In some journals, I found benefits of sunscreen:
- Protecting skin from UV rays
- It lowers skin cancer risk
- Preventing premature aging skin
Eventhough Sunplay leaves whitecast on my face for a while, it fast absorbs to the skin and not greasy.
Laneige Water Science Mist - Skin Relief (Soothing)
After exposed to sunshine, my face usually feels burny. To sooth it, I spray Laneige Water Sience Mist or use it for CSM.
If it doesn't really works, I also put aloevera gel onto my face.
Those combination can calm my skin.
Shinzui Skin Lightening Body Lotion
Hot summer, dry body skin, also need moisturizer. I choose to apply Shinzui body lotion. This lotion is white, thick, easily absorbed, making the skin feel very smooth, even the elbows, knees and soles of the feet feel smooth. Stinging fragrance at beginning, vanished after a while.
Usually after I get up in the morning, first thing I do is to brush my teeth then wash my face with Kojie San Lightening Soap. My skin is clean, smooth, no more dullness.
PM cleansing is a must! When I wear makeup, firstly remove it with Pixy Lip and Eye Makeup Remover, continue with A.Stop Foam Cleanser.
Previously, my serum was iFace. Now I change it to Garnier Sakura White Hyaluron Booster Serum. My skin immediately felt soft, smooth. Fast absorbing, giving me instant moist skin. Not greasy eventhough it is thick serum.
Olay Regenerist Microsculpting Night Cream
Olay Regenerist Microsculpting Night Cream is my holy grail moisturizer. It's not only moisturizing skin, but also make skin softer, firmer and reducing fine lines.
In the morning my moisturizer is Olay White Radiance Day Intensive Whightening Lotion. It's a light lotion, easily absorbed, and does withen my face.
So thus the essential skincare to deal with hot summer. How about you?
