Steps 6 and 7: Two Treatments (or a Sheet Mask)
Here is where I tackle my two biggest skin concerns: brown spots along the top of my cheekbones and hormonal acne breakouts on my chin. For this, I use a heavy-duty brightener and free-radical killer, aka Klairs Vitamin C Juice Drop ($23), and sprinkle that over areas that have pigmentation, which are mainly my cheeks. To tame the beast (aka my poor cystic-acne-prone chin), I sweep the COSRX BHA Power Liquid ($22), a naturally occurring chemical exfoliant, along my T-zone and my jawline to keep my pores free of dead skin cells and excess oil. If my skin needs a break from these active ingredients, I go for a soothing, hydrating sheet mask instead. It really depends on my mood.
