How to Get Lesser Clogged Pores, Reduce Neck Lines and Acne Scars/PIH + 2017 Skin Goals

Before the new year 2017, I realized that my skin was in a better condition than it was in the beginning of 2016.
In this post, I am sharing with you guys my skin goals that I achieved in the year 2016 and how to achieve it. Don't say that I didn't share my secrets!!

In 2016, my skin & I achieved:
Lesser clogged pores
Discovery of an amazing ingredient to treat acne scars in just a week
Softer looking neck lines

How I Achieved Lesser Clogged Pores

Previously my skin looked HIDEOUS with all the clogged pores that budged out to the surface of my face. It looked uglier and more obvious with makeup. I hated looking at my skin in the mirror because I knew I can detect the pesky bumps.

As the year progressed, I gained knowledge on finding the cure to clogged pores after fed up with combating them.

Once upon a time in early 2016, I got more serious on the 10-step Korean skincare routine.
Since I was a noobie, I implemented alot of products in my routine without knowing that it caused me clogging.
Layer after layer until my pores suffocated.
One time, something hits my mind to be light with my skincare routine and at that time, I was showed that the multiple unnecessary layers had caused me clogged pores.
Oils and rich creams on my easily clogged just oh my god.

So yeah I started to be light with my layers, only layering necessary products until I achieved sufficient moisture and hydration.
Then I noticed I've been getting less clogged pores.
Using a peel off mask to clarify the skin and release clogged pores helped too.
and also purging with acids.

After discovering the remedy, I've been avoiding pore clogging products such as thick creams, pore-clogging sunscreens, makeup and stuffs that settles on the pores.
I've been listening my skin on what it needs, not what it wants.
So listen to your skin, guys!
Don't force all the essences, serums, ampoules, creams and oils that you have on your skin. It won't be able to support it, especially if your skin easily gets clogged like mine.

I still get clogged pores now but the ones on my cheeks are reduced in numbers.
and I get a happy skin with a smoother and even texture.
and I just wanted to tell you that the 10-step skincare routine is not necessary.
The important thing is that your skin is provided with sufficient moisture and hydration to get through the day and night.
You can have a 5 or 6 skincare steps and an already hydrated face!

Treat Acne Scars/Post Inflammatory Hyper-pigmentation(PIH) In Just A Week

2016 was the year of realizing things discovery of what works for my skin, what my skin likes and which ingredients work best for my skin.
The most memorable and amazing ingredient that I discovered last year was Vitamin C, particularly Ascorbic Acid.
Ascorbic Acid is the strongest form of Vitamin C.
I've been trying out other whitening ingredients as well such as Niacinamide but my skin don't really cooperate with it well in terms of fading acne scars. A 5% Niacinamide product took me 6 weeks to ATLEAST show a reduced in redness while Vitamin C can diminish the appearance of my acne scars completely without trace within just A WEEK.
If you wanna know which products I am talking about, check out my blog posts HERE(Niacinamide) and HERE(Vitamin C).

Looking forward to use more Ascorbic Acid products in 2017!

How To Lighten Neck Folds/Lines

Only last year, I realized that my deep neck lines were ugly. It was a shame for me because I have a youthful face but a mature looking neck.
Neck is the pillar of your face.
Last year, I was introduced to using a neck cream(REVIEW).
Using that neck cream alone didn't help with fining the appearance of my deep neck folds.
Since I emptied the neck cream, I got hooked with massaging and taking care of my neck.
The voidance of the neck cream made me to share the skincare products that I am using with my neck.
My toners, essences, serums, ampoules, creams etc.

Basically give the 10-step Korean skincare routine to the neck.
Nope, not a whole new 10 new products for your neck but sharing the skincare steps that you implemented on your face with your neck as well.
I've been using this method for awhile and without realization, I noticed that my neck folds are looking softer, finer and lighter.
No more deep and strong neck folds.
I am a 21-year old and my face and neck are looking at the same age.
Do this within a month or two then you might see a difference.
You HAVE TO massage your neck upwards and not downwards.
The way of your massaging determines your face's prospective formation naturally.

2017 Skin Goals

I wish to have less acne, thats all I ever wish for. No acne = no PIH/acne scars to treat = less spending on whitening skincare = more money for foods = happy life. I still get acne time to time but I noticed that it lessens when I use products with low pH levels. if you are acne like me, acne prone and have a reactive skin, low pH is your solution.

It is worth it.♥
