[Lockdown Edition] My Updated Skincare Routine: Stress and Maskne-proof!

Hi everyone! My friends tend to ask me what I do to keep my skin clear. At 28 years old, I still haven’t started on Retinol, but I am using gentle acids as an exfoliant (Vit C serum and AHA BHA toner). Here’s a quick rundown of my skincare routine.

As seen on @donutalmondy on IG.


  • Luxe Organix Aloe Vera with Vit C Facial Wash
  • Skin Potions Vit C Tomato Serum
  • Biore Aqua UV sunscreen


  • Luxe Organix Aloe Vera with Vit C Facial Wash
  • Luxe Organix AHA BHA Toner
  • Hada Labo Gokujyun lotion
  • Hada Labo hyaluronic gel moisturizer
  • Luxe Organix castor oil for brows and lashes

  • Backup moisturizer: Skinlab Jeju Aloe Ice Soothing Gel
  • DHC Lip Cream

I’ve simplified it into these since I used to layer a lot of ampoules and serums and what have you. I found that 1) my wallet was dying and 2) my skin didn’t need it. Since I suffer from mostly dry skin, nose blackheads, and an oily T-zone, I added an AHA BHA toner from Luxe Organix- a really affordable brand! I used to buy the expensive Laneige water gel and found that Hada Labo hyaluronic gel moisturizer could do that at a fraction of the price.

I think if I had to downsize even further, I’d survive on the Hada Labo Gokujyun lotion and moisturizer combo, along with Biore Aqua UV sunscreen. These are enough to give me a glass skin glow, and I haven’t had a pimple since March. Honest! I rarely get them, but when I do, they’re massive and on my nose or chin (hormonal). My skincare is simple and concentrated on moisture so it keeps fine lines away from my dry skin, hopefully. Of course, nothing beats good ol fashioned H20 so drink those 8 glasses a day!

What’s your skincare routine! Tell me all about it! :>
