Current skin status
99.9 %clear. Some blackhead on nose. Pregnant with baby daughter and is due in next two weeks.
as tile suggested, I stopped using safflower oil for some time. Because if the oil is slightly ever being off, it breaks me out.. and I don't want to keep my skincare in refrigerator...
But I discovered a new HG facial cleaning product- Garnier micellar cleaning water- for sensitive skin (the pink one). In have gone through at least 4 or 5 bottles of it. Doesn't remove waterproof, cream or primer eyeshadow though, so I also have a small bottle of the same brand of micellar water but in removing waterproof make up version (blue one).
recently I also have started to use baking soda as my in shower morning facial cleanser. Very satisfied with it. I feel it helped and improved my skin texture and brightness. I am also just started testing out Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner Cream to control my t zone oil. Not sure if it's working but it smells nice and doesn't break my out. Quite silicony so helps to blur the pores.
I also stopped using Heliocare 360 gel sunscreen as well.. Even though I really loved it, it made makeup application difficult especially eye and under eye area. Since it's not water resistant and I get watery eye easily when applying eye makeup, it will melt off with tears and leave a line mark and cannot be blended.. And after I start to use baking soda as morning cleanser, my face is not that oily anymore so sunscreen part I just go back to Elta MD uv shield. I do put some primer on my t zone though (smashbox purple one).
My skin has been pretty stable for quite some time. Don't know if it's due to my pregnancy or I have been using correct products for my skin...
