Summer Essential Needs part 1 & 2nd blog award

Hello everyone, thank you once again for the sweet comment last time on my previous post. This week didn't go any better but at least I try to make it better T_T. Anyway, it have been a while since I do any useful post so here it's. This is part one of my summer Essential needs post. It's focused only on face. The next post will be focused on hair. ^^. This post mostly for recommended products to used on your face during the summer. I have used all these products before however it might have different effects on someone else because we all have different skin type ^^.


My skin:
Type: Oily/Acne Prone. Combination around cheek


1. Face sunscreen.


~I used the shiseido sunscreen. This sunscreen is the ONLY sunscreen that is not oily or sticky enough for my face. It did not gives me any pimples like all the other brand did. I always applied sunscreen at the beginning of everyday so when I go out I don't forget and not have it on. The sun basically will damaged your skin cell and make your acne scar darkened. So yes SUN is very scary for your skin. Remember: to reapply everytime you go out of the pool or when you sweat excessively.
2. Mask
~I use masks during the summer often (every two week or so) to deep clean my pore and replenish my skin. Since my skin is especially bad during the summer. Two type of masks I recommended are (masque sauna) and DHC mineral mask (more on the expensive side).

3. Exfoliate EVERY TWO WEEKS ^^!!!!!! Take all those dead skin out ^^.
4. Oil absorbing Sheets

~It's summer and we sweat a lot right?What happened when we sweat?Our pore got clogged and bam acne come up. To prevent your face from become way too oily, I recommended you to use an oil absorbing sheets when you go out. My fav is Clean and Clear oil absorbing sheets which doesn't smudge makeup as much ^^.

5
. Face Wash

~The most important routine during a hot summer day is to wash your face. GET ALL THE OIL and dirt out of your poor skin. I washed my face at least 2 or 3 times a day which prevent new acne from popping up. My fav is the Neutrogena Rapid Clear face wash <----this could be quite drying during the winter however very great for the summer
6. Acne gel

~Even though of all those routine I did up there, I still get some pimples now and then during the summer >_<. However, it got a lot better when I started using Neutrogena rapid clear acne gel. I've been using it for two years now and my skin improved a lot ^^. I put this on before I go to bed ^^.
7. Moisturizer




~I know what you think. Moisturizer during the summer? O_O? Yes, moisturize your face because if you don't your skin will become super flaky and cakey Ew! However, I use a very light and natural product as my moisturizer (other give me pimples) It's the Aloe Vera Gel which not only great as a moisturizer but also to treat sun burn and fade acne scar ^^. I LOVE THIS!
Tips for acne prone skin:
~Always pull your hair away from your face before you go to sleep (you sweat when you sleep and your hair just make all those sweat go to your face)
~Wear sunscreen 24/7
~Do not use heavy foundations for it will clogged your pores more T_T.
