Monsoon skin care routine

My routine for skin care
Scrub
Exfoliate
Serum
Moisturize
Facewash
What's your routine?
wash
rosewater/salicylic acid cleanser
vitamin c/niacinamide serum
spot gel if needed
sunscreen in the morning

but you really should not be doing a scrub and exfoliating...those two can damage your skin barrier and overexfoliate, leading to more spots. especially if you do it every day. personally i think that's one of the worst things you can do to your skin. plus it really destroys your collagen over time
I've been trying to establish a skincare routine but I usually just wash my face with cold water and then use a facial wash.

In terms of ointments I used aveeno religiously until they changed their formula a few months back. Now I just use some sunscreen.

My makeup routine is very light. I apply 3 small drops of foundation and sometimes mascara. I only do the makeup steps if I’m going somewhere. Not if I’m at home or only popping out for small errands such as the shops/post office/lectures etc. I wash my face twice at night if I’m wearing makeup, otherwise once is enough.

I have very little acne (at the moment 3 pimples). I do have a few blemishes (on my cheeks) so if anyone has any recommendations to reduce the appearance of those, it would be much appreciated! :smile:
