When I turned 24, my skin turned about 80. I see all these new lines, indents, freckles, hyper pigmentation and bizarre acne flares bust out all over my face – my skin is more disastrous than the roads here in Boston.
I picked apart my skin – metaphorically and physically. And yes down the line when I have my finances more together, I will be getting some work done. FUCK IT.
What I am doing right now is prepping and preventing, which has had some amazing results in itself. What has truly help my skin is following a Korean skincare regiment, known as the 10 Step System.
My skin used to be an oil slick – just not as pretty as the ones you see in the parking lots of Walmart after a good storm. It feels like literally overnight, my skin has become more oil/dry combination. During this summer, I noticed that my skin was predominately oily, now that its becoming colder, more dry. I recently invested in a few products that have really impressed me, and I plan to try out some more.
What is a Korean 10 Step Skincare System?
I started heavily watching some youtubers in Korea who were predominately focused on skincare. Their skin is literally flawless. So I invested in some books, some of my time into youtube, and reading extensively reviews on Memebox.com.
The steps go alittle like this:
- Oil cleanse
- Water cleanse
- Sheet mask
- Heavy cream
- Sun care
These steps do not need to be followed every single day, but the order relatively stays the same. For example I use a sheet mask about 3 times a week, especially when my skin is having a moment.
