Yes folks, it’s almost 2019. Thought I’ll share my skin resolutions, after going through the ups and downs of my skin condition.
If you’ve been reading my blog or following my IG, you’ll know that I went through fungal acne. Fortunately, I survived. Since then, I was a bit paranoid about skincare.Through some own research, I found cosdna and skincarisma which helped me a lot to find skincare products which suited my sensitive fungal-acne prone skin. And also through that time, I learned about a few ingredients to avoid for fungal acne sufferer.
Without further adieu, here are my 2019 skin resolutions:
ALWAYS READ THE INGREDIENTS LIST BEFORE PURCHASING
If I shop online, I’d be fine because I did lots of research first before clicking that BUY button. But, if I shop offline, there’s going to be some problems. I got attracted to nice packaging and promotions (LOL), so most of the time I forgot to read the ingredients and went straight to cashier. Yes, this impulsive habit needs to stop.
NOT TO BE BORED WITH THE SAME PRODUCT
This is hard, when this world seems to bombard us with new products on daily basis. Of course, I got tempted to try new stuffs, which might not work on my sensitive, fungal acne prone skin. But in the end, even though I’m bored, I will always go back purchasing things that worked.
REMIND MYSELF THAT ALL IS DIFFERENT
I tend to believe, if one product did good on my skin, then I will trust that brand and keep buying the other products from that one brand. Meanwhile, as we knew it, it’s a rare thing. One product might work, while the others not so much.
WILL TRY MORE LOCAL SKINCARE BRANDS (IF ANY)
It’s already hard to find Korean, Japan, US or French skincare products that are safe for fungal acne. And it’s harder to find local ones. So, I wish there are more local brands that will create skincare products which are safe for fungal acne sufferer.
MORE MERCY ON NECK
Yes, my poor neglected neck. Too much concentration on fixing the face, but forgetting the neck. I’ll try my best to do more moisturizing and anti-aging skincare routine for my neck.
