The At-Home Facial I've Been Doing Every Week For My Combination Skin
Whenever I find myself with a little extra time on my hands, I browse my collection of face masks and beauty treatments for entertainment. I have other hobbies, sure, but I view skin care as my main one. (It also happens to be my job.)
Because I love it so much, it feels wrong calling taking care of my skin "hard work". But candidly, it is. It's taken a lot of trial and error to get my skin-care routine just right. I'm one of those people who rarely had acne as a teenager, but started getting breakouts as an adult when I turned 21. It was the type of cystic acne that primarily shows up around your jaw and is triggered by hormones. Boy, was that a time.
Now that my skin has cleared up for the most part — I still get breakouts occasionally but the situation has vastly improved — I feel like I know what my skin needs and stick to it religiously. That includes doing an extended DIY facial once a week. (I like to call it my me-time.) The products I use help detox my skin while still supplying it with hydration and also lighten discoloration from acne — oh, and increase radiance, because aside from clear skin, that's my other big skin-care goal.
