My Skincare Routine


As I get older, my skincare routine becomes more and more important. I used to be completely anti-skincare routine. I’d wash my face with a bar of soap and be good and breakout free since I was a teen into my early 20’s. As I became a heavy drinker and partier and my diet turned into a fast food catering menu, my skin followed suit. So it’s no surprise that I strongly skincare starts within.

Skin type: Oily; sensitive, dry, with blackheads.

Approach: Start with a balanced healthy diet and drinking lots of water. I tend to do the same things in the morning and night every day. With the added exfoliant 2-3 times a week. This has drastically helped my hormonal acne that tends to show up on my cheeks and around my chin.



  1. Wash face with Kate Somerville Exfolikate Daily Cleanser.
  2. Follow with Clean Beauty Witch Hazel with Rosewater and Aloe on a cotton pad.
  3. Follow with The Inky List Beta Hydroxy Acid on my problem areas (t-zone and chin).
  4. Cover face and neck in the OneKind Dream Cream.


  1. 2-3 times a week depending on my skin, I exfoliate with Kate Somerville’s ExfoliKate.
  2. After a long shower, when my pores are open, usually bi-weekly, I safely and gently extract my blackheads with a blemish extractor or a pore extractor (those sucky boys are cool!).
  3. Weekly I do a facial serum + Rose Quartz roller before bed. Better if you do it more often, but once a week is the best I can remember!


  1. I really want to try and add Gua sha into my routine. It is the practice of using a tool to apply pressure and scrape the skin to relieve pain and tension. Have you tried it? Let me know in the comments!
