My New Skincare Routine

Skincare routine is one of the most important investments you must have at a young age. It doesn’t matter how you do it, as long as you take care of your skin every day.

My skincare routine began only in my twenties. Yes, you hear that right, in my twenties. No one has ever taught me the importance of skincare. But thanks to the internet, I was able to catch on with taking care of my skin.

The products I use often differ because I have to find the perfect fit. I often cleanse, use a toner, and moisturize my skin, day and night. I once posted what products I used for my daily skincare routine.

Now, since living a more sustainable and less plastic lifestyle, my skincare routine change. It became simpler compared to my last year’s skincare routine. I only use two products a facial bar and face oil.

I choose these to replace my old products because they are not contained in plastic, they are affordable, safe to use, and local.

Facial Bar

The facial bar I am currently using is from Kalikhasan, a local shop that makes handmade and eco-friendly items. They have a wide selection of products you can enjoy, but for me, I will say that their facial bars are amazing.

I specifically use their Charcoal Facial Bar with Tea Tree and Lavender, and their Tea Tree Facial Bar with Shea and Olive. Both bars I have are 70g. I’m not sure if they have a bigger version of this.

What I like about their products are the following:

  • The scent is not too strong. It has a gentle smell that gives off a relaxing and calming effect.
  • Lasts longer than liquid facial wash.
  • Safe for your skin because of the ingredients used.
  • Affordable.

Ingredients: Tea Tree Essential Oil, Shea Butter, Olive Oil, Tea Tree Leaves, Kaolin Clay, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Castor Oil (Tea Tree Facial Bar). Activated Charcoal, Tea Tree and Lavender Essential Oils, Coconut Oil, Castor Oil (Charcoal Facial Bar)

Since both products use natural ingredients, it only means that the shelf life is short.

Face Oil

I have already written a review of this product, and I still love it. It’s eco-friendly (refillable) and safe to use.

It contains simple and safe ingredients that are gentle to your skin. You can read my complete review of Pepita’s Secret Face Oil to know what effect it has on my skin.

My skincare routine has become simpler and safer. Now, I don’t have many skincare issues. I am perfectly happy with how my skin looks like, and I’m not afraid to not wear makeup.

Taking care of your skin means you have to try almost all products before you find the perfect match, and what you put on your skin matters. That is why the safer the product is, the more certain you are that it will not cause a breakout on your skin.

Remember to always opt for products that don’t have harmful chemicals in their ingredients. The more natural it is, the safer.
