*This is the real basic things you need in your skincare to make sure that your skin will not disappoint you. If you guys do skip one of this step. So, don’t ask me why your skin didn’t be like others.

Foam cleanser
For this foam cleanser make sure you use the low PH value of foam cleanser. The reason why we need the love PH value is, to balancing our PH skin to a pure and natural level. You can use the same foam cleanser for day & night.

Moisturizer is the crucial thing that all of us need in our skincare routine. Don’t dream to be Kendall if you don’t have moisturizer. Moisturizer can be gel, cream, and watery product. It also prevent our skin from becoming too dry or oily. Do apply moisturizer not more than 1minute after you finish wash your face.

Sunscreen
Sunscreen and sunblock are two different things but have the same goals which is to prevent skin from burning and aging. Okay for this step, I would like to ‘bebel banyak’.
Sunblock = Protect UVB (B-Burning),works physically
Sunscreen = Protect UVA (A-Aging),works chemically
How to choose, sunblock or sunscreen? Choose both, by choosing the sunscreen which have broad-spectrum type (Sunblock&sunscreen). How to know? See on the product, if there wrote, SPF30 PA+++ it means broad-spectrum.
For sensitive and acne prone skin, better to use sunblock only. And for other skin types can use broad-spectrum sunscreen.
Don’t ever try to leave your face out from the house without applying sunscreen on your face, if not. Don’t bebel at me why your skin breakout, aging, sunburn, pigmentation, and acne appear on your skin. Remember okay!
Product that you can try which is BELOW RM50:
Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Mist (Drugstore) *All skin types
Yadah Oh My Sun Screen (Drugstore) *Sensitive/Normal skin
Just Herbs No Sun Jojoba Wheatgerm Moisturizing Sun Protection Gel (High End) *Normal/Dry skin

Oil Cleanser
Function oil cleanser as double cleansing. And it’s so important in doing double cleansing. If you skip this step, you’ll not get the smooth and flawless skin.
Product that you can try which is BELOW RM50
Simple Oil Cleansing (Drugstore) *All skin types
Biore Oil Cleansing (Drugstore) *All skin types

After I had introducing this all basic things to you guys, then how do you feel? Is it anything you don’t have? For me, taking care of our own skin is very crucial for us, people don’t like to be compare with others, especially the beauty. So, if you also want a smooth, flawless skin like any actress and influencer then, you need to start taking care of your skin. To be good is a risk, also to be gorgeous, you need money. But, do spend your money wisely. Thank you!
