    Hello! This is everything you need to know about skincare in one place. I'll make it as concise and easy as possible with certified products and information.


    Steps:

    When it comes to steps between AM & PM, there are two major differences, the former has the addition of sunscreen and the latter has the addition of an oil-based cleanser.

    The following is a basic routine:

    AM:

    • Water based cleanser
    • Actives
    • Essence
    • Moisturizer
    • SPF

    PM:

    • Oil based cleanser
    • Water based cleanser
    • Actives
    • Essence
    • Moisturizer

    Essential Ingredients:

    These are ingredients that have been scientifically proven to either improve texture, hyperpigmentation, acne, aging and or redness.

    • Hyaluronic Acid: A naturally occurring substance in the body that plays an important role in maintaining skin health and hydration. This vital molecule helps to draw moisture from the environment into the skin and retain it within the tissue matrix. As a result, it can give your skin a more youthful, plump appearance by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Campari's recommendation: Hada Labo's Gokujyun Premium Lotion which contains five different kinds of HA.

    • Niacinamide: A trusted skincare ingredient that offers a multitude of benefits. Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide is an effective way to improve skin tone, reduce inflammation, and promote collagen production. The topical application of niacinamide has been shown to increase the levels of ceramides and free fatty acids in the skin, which helps to strengthen the skin barrier and protect against environmental damage. Campari's recommendation: PC 10% Niacinamide Booster

    • Retinol: A powerful ingredient that is commonly found in many skincare products. This vitamin A derivative has been shown to dramatically improve the appearance and texture of the skin, reducing wrinkles, age spots, and sun damage. Specifically, retinol has been shown to help increase collagen production in the skin and make it more resilient to UV rays. And its anti-aging effects don't stop there: some studies have even shown that regular use of retinol can reverse the development of fine lines and other early signs of aging. Campari's recommendation: Sachi Skin's Retinol Overnight Reform

    • Ceramides: A type of fat that naturally occurs in the skin. They help to maintain the skin's moisture barrier, keeping skin hydrated and preventing dryness. Ceramides are found in the cell membrane, and they help to hold the cells together. They also play a role in regulating cell turnover and inflammation. When there is a deficiency of ceramides in the skin, it can lead to dryness, scaling, and irritation. Campari's recommendation: Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Skin Barrier Moisturizer


    Chemical Exfoliants

    This step is to be used first thing after cleansing in the PM. Considered an "active" ingredient, these products will truly do the work in terms of clearing up acne, blackheads and fighting hyperpigmentation.

    Campari's recommended products:


    Soon to follow will be essentials in face cleansers, face masks and SPF amongst others. Please note that I am not sponsored by any brand nor do i encourage you to buy everything in here, these are simply for referral in case you are looking for your next product.

    Face Cleansers

    SKIN 1004: MADAGASCAR CENTELLA LIGHT CLEANSING OIL

    MAJOR INGREDIENTS:

    • Lightweight, multifunctional cleanser thoroughly removes makeup and impurities from skin while offering some extra nourishment. Coconut-derived MCT oil combined with cica extract as well as six kinds of botanical oils deliver a refreshing, skin-soothing and pore-tightening finish.*

    This was an incredible purchase, I got it as a random sample and was stunned by the consistency and effectivity. It's an oil based cleanser that transforms to a water based once you add some water. You no longer need a second cleanser. It has made my skin very soft and glowing.


    CERAVE: FACIAL FOAMING CLEANSER

    MAJOR INGREDIENTS:

    Dermatologists recommend CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser for people with acne as it works to cleanse the skin and remove oil, without disrupting the skin鈥檚 protective barrier. It won鈥檛 clog pores or dry the skin out, and contains niacinamide and ceramides to help calm and moisturize irritated skin

    SPF

    Beauty of Joseon: Relief Sun: Rice + Probiotics (SPF50+)

    Major ingredients:

    Rice extract 30% + Grain fermented extracts
    Rice and grain fermented extracts are rich in vitamins B, C, E, amino acids, and minerals which help to moisturize dry skin and comfortably calm the skin.

    I switched up my sunscreen after six years and I'm really enjoying this one. It's super hydrating and easy to wear. Not as lightweight as the Skin Aqua however it's much more moisturizing - you can really get away with using this as a primary moisturizer in the summer.


    ROHTO SKIN AQUA SUPER MOISTURE MILK

    MAJOR INGREDIENTS

    The milky sunscreen fluid features the highest UV protection in the Skin Aqua lineup, and it turns into a transparent, water-like texture when applied to the skin. A blend of 2 types of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and amino acid keeps the skin hydrated. The moisturising yet water-light milk gives durable sun protection that is ideally suited for beach and water sports as well as everyday wear. Skin feels moisturised, smooth, and comfortable with no sticky or white residue.

    Essence & Serums

    YTTP鈥檚 Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil

    Major ingredients:

    Maqui: The most antioxidant dense fruit in the world. This rare superberry helps combat free radicals. Acai: Rich in omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids that help to revive dull, dry skin. Prickly Pear: Extremely hydrating. Helps ease signs of redness. Goji: Rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamins C, and E. Helps soften the appearance of fine lines and combat free radicals.

    One of my favourite discoveries. It has some light fragrance so I don鈥檛 use this all the time - but when I do, this is simply incredible. If you have healthy skin, this will literally make you look like a walking Snapchat filter, your skin radiates. I run this on dates with some Baccarat Rouge 540 & it鈥檚 so dangerous, get compliments instantly!

    I like konjac sponges for cleaning and gently exfoliating the face.

    Best part is you can use it with just water or your favorite cleanser. It feels nice on your skin either way.
