Skin care for acne prone skin like mine is so crucial. I have to take care of my skin seriously and choose the right product for my skin so that my skin won’t break out since it is so easy to have one. So here are my 6 steps everyday skincare routine. 




Step 1 – Oil Cleanser

For some people, they will use the fancy oil cleanser for removing their makeup or just to clean their face before face wash, for me I don’t need the fancy one, as long as it works then it will be my holy grail product. I’m using the most gentle oil cleanser in the world which is baby oil. I use from Johnson’s brand, but it doesn’t matter whichever the brand as long as – again, it works.

Pour some amount on to your hand and apply it to your skin with a circular motion around 5 minutes or until your makeup off. This baby oil is also great for removing waterproof mascara. After that wipe with wet paper towel. Remember wet paper towel, because if you use dry paper towel your skin will be hurt or just regular towel but wet. For this big bottle of baby oil, I only paid for around $4 in Walmart  , and it lasts for a very long time.

Step 2 – Face wash

After I removed my makeup by using the baby oil, I will wipe my face using a wet paper towel, and then I wash my face using face wash. The face wash I use is from Equate beauty, this product looks like Neutrogena oil-free face wash, but the price is way lower. This product I got from Walmart for around $4. This face wash contains salicylic acid which is great for acne prone skin as an acne treatment. 

Step 3 – Toner

I use the toner after I wash my face with face wash. The way I apply it is after I wiped all the water from my face. I made my own face toner because until now I can’t find the right one for me, most of the toner I tried they will make my skin dry and make my pores even more visible. This DIY face toner is a mix of apple cider vinegar and water. Nothing fancy just mixes them all and shake it before use. Apply on to your face by using a cotton pad. Make sure the apple cider vinegar still has “the mother” in it.




Step 4 – Serum

I found that my skin will be even smoother if I apply the serum. I bought it from Ipsy because I got a discount. The price was around $16 and because of the discount, I got it for around $7.  It is Clarisea Radical Rosehip. I like this serum because it has the scent of grapeseed after I read the ingredients, it does have 100% grapeseed oil in it. So, this product is not fake. I feel my face is so smooth and brighter after I use this. I don’t know it just my feeling or it actually does. Well, I feel good using this product.

Step 5 – moisturizer

The next step is using a moisturizer, I got from Cetaphil here. I have been using this brand from long back until now. It just good on my skin, no breakout until now, and also because I live in Hackensack which is a cold place, moisturizer is a must. Never ever skip moisturizer even you have an oily skin type. The oily skin is because the skin is lacking moisture, that’s why they produce more oil to moisturize the skin itself.

step 6 – Medication

The last steps actually not for everyday routine but when I need I will do it like a week straight. This product actually is a 10% benzoyl peroxide. I bought the CVS brand because it is cheap and the percentage of benzoyl peroxide is quite high. I only use this product when I get pimples which is once a month, after that I will not use it again. This product can also make the skin super dry and itchy if we apply too much ( like what I did ), so be careful.




Those are my 6 steps everyday skincare routine. I have to do all those steps to prevent my face from getting acne which I don’t want anymore. How about you guys? Do you have the same routine as me? Let me know in the comment below. xoxo

“Blogger” for some people is not an interesting job, it is unprofessional and no income. Yeah that is from the people who doesn’t like keyboard-maybe. (LOL). Blogging seems unrecognized job before at least for me, I thought that blogging is only write things in the internet then people can take the advantages of our brain-work freely.

When I was in senior high school I join one of fiction-writing organizations. There they taught me how to write a short story until a book. It was so interesting for me because I like to write short story when I get bored in the class. I made around 3 novel but I kept it by myself because I have no confident to sell it. I saw some of my friends they can make it into a big book store but they use their own money, they are rich kid tho. That’s why I just kept all of my story inside my cupboard until I lost them all.

My dream as an writer is still going on until now, even I have some other desire to be but still need time to make it through. And then I knew that if become a book author somewhat difficult for me, there’s nothing to be difficult in blogging. I just need to put my idea there and people can see that and if they like it, it is a bonus for me. There are several other reason why I started to blog. You wanna know? Here they are:

I started to blog because I have lots of spare time

I am stay-at-home mom, after my daughter take a nap I used to feel confused what should I do next, when everything has been done. I will back again watch youtube or read someone blog, but that’s making me even more eager to do something else. 

I started to blog because I want some income that I get from my hard work

Before married I used to be an employee, I work 5 days a week and get my own income. I work behind the desk and having a nice job at that time. Even sometimes I used to feel bored with the job I had and just wanna be in home as a stay-at-home mom. After I got married we moved to US and I can’t work outside because of some administration rules I can’t pass, so what I think first is start the business from home that I capable without making me messed up other thing also I get the income for myself by myself. 

I started to blog because I want to express my passion Publicly

I have passion in photography but I want to be a good writer too, so why don’t I combine these things and become a blogger who can share positivity that cross in my mind. And hopefully can make my reader motivate by my words.

 

I started to blog because I like it

Do whatever you like as long as it is not harmful for you or other people. Blogging is not harmful for me, and my content is always informative which means I am not harming anyone. So what should I wait to start a blog.

As a blogger I learn a lot of things. I also start to read books more than before. I even more into positive mind rather than negative mind when deciding anyone behavior on me. And still a lot of benefit to be a blogger. So how about you guys? What is your passion? What makes you motivated everyday?
