Autumn Skincare Tips


Autumn has finally locked our door! You can feel the winds and dryiness and it is time to do more to protect your skin from drying out quickly. Here is my little facial tips which I would like to share it with you.


In autumn time, I like to have facial three times a week if possible to ensure my skin is hyrated enough. To begin with, I would wash my face and use th peel gel, like I said in previous post. Then I would use clay mask (i.e. kiehl's rare earth deep pore cleansing masque). In summer time, I would normally leave it until it completely dry out (10 minutes), in autumn time, I would just wait for 5 to 7 minutes) to avoid it absorbing too much "water" from my skin.


For mask, I would recommend using Tony Moly Intense Care Snail Hydro-gel Mask. I know the feeling of this snail mask sheet is disgusting, but trust me the hydrating power is super great. I would normally use my HABA ion machine to help my skin absorbing the ingredients. be sure to leave it on your face no more than 20 minutes. The idea is that when you remove the mask, your face is still full of mask gel and not dry out. If your skin is dry out, it means the ingredient is going back to the mask. I feel like it is all about ingredient density between your face and the mask. In the first few minutes, the ingredients in the mask is higher than that in your face, so it transfer the ingredients to your face. When times go by, it reverses as the ingredients in your face build up. So, never keep your mask overnight if it is not a sleeping mask.


If the facial mask doesn't cover my eyes, I would use Sofina eyes mask afterward. The little tips has been given by the sales is that I need to slightly scratch it to help squeezing the ingredient out. I would put it under my eyes for 5 minutes and on top of my eyes for another 5 minutes. As it is quite sticky, try to press your under eye skin when removing the mask to prevent stretching the sensitive eye skin too much.


For my lips I would apply a thick layer of lip balm and use a small plastic paper to cover it for 5 minutes.

I hope this inspire you slightly. You don't need to use the exact product that I mention. People may have different types of skin that may have other products that fit them. What also matters is the little technics when using the product.

Hope you have a nice weekend and enjoy!
