Skincare Diary | Dry and Irritated Skin

Sunday, 16 July 2017


As I've been trying to get rid pigmentations caused by acne scarring, I decided to finally bring out LANEIGE White Plus Renew Spot Ampoule (will try to review later) and use it on those ugly-looking spots on my facial area. The result? It's working for sure but my God, all hell breaks loose when it comes to my moisture level as I have never felt such dryness on my skin and I've only been using the spot treatment ampoule for about a week. There's redness around my cheek and jawline area that I can't just ignore. Thankfully, I have this soothing gel sitting among my beauty stash.

I've tried several soothing gels so far; the famous Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel, the Bamboo soothing gel and this Fresh Lotus version from THE FACE SHOP. Quite frankly, I love this one the most definitely because I'd prefer its scent. 

So how do I quickly treat the dryness? Cleanse and tone the skin, take rounds of thin cotton pads or those non-woven facial puffs from Watsons, scoop out some or liberally of the gel and apply on the dry and irritated area, and put on those thin puffs on top to seal it from drying out for about 15 to 20 minutes. Wipe off the excess and continue with the rest of your skincare. 

I guess that's all for today and I'll see you guys on the next post!
