Acne Awareness Month is here, and so is your new daily skincare routine by COSRX! Every skincare routine needs the basics: a cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer. To elevate your routine, add in some retinol once a week before bed to smoothen wrinkles!
Start off with COSRX’s newest launch, the Low pH Niacinamide Micellar Cleansing Water ($15). This cleanser is perfect for those with sensitive skin that simultaneously removes your makeup–so say goodbye to those irritating makeup wipes! After cleanser comes toner, which gets rid of that extra dirt and grime that’s sucked into your pores. The AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner ($20) is perfect for getting in those pores while also exfoliating the skin and getting rid of those impurities.
After this comes serum. The Vitamin C 23 Serum ($25) is perfect for brightening your skin both day and night. To use, shake the bottle lightly, and apply a few drops to the skin. Massage gently in order to fully absorb the serum. If you are using this in the morning, make sure to put on some SPF to give your skin an extra layer of protection!
Want to add some retinol into your routine? Use the Retinol 0.1 Cream ($27) once a week if you are just starting out, and gradually work your way into 2-3 times a week if tolerable. To use, apply a tiny amount to your ring finger, and massage into your skin or areas of wrinkle concern. Use night time only, and make sure to apply your SPF the next morning!
Lastly comes moisturizer. This is one of the most crucial steps in a skincare routine in order to prevent excess oils or dryness. The AC Collection Lightweight Soothing Moisturizer ($19) is a soothing moisturizer that is most suitable for acne-prone skin, but anyone can use it! To better the absorption of the mosturizer, tap into the skin after application. All COSRX products can be purchased at https://www.cosrx.com/ and select retailers.
