Did you know that the skin is the largest organ of the human body? And aside from that, there is so much more to your skin than you might think.
Like the skin accounts for about 15% of your body weight or the skin renews itself every 28 days.
During the pandemic, I suffered from maskne which really pushed me to take extra care of my skin than ever before.
But before I share my favorite products, here are my top three favorite quotes about the skin.
“Be good to your skin. You’ll wear it every day for the rest of your life.” — Renee Rouleau
“Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle.” — Erno Laszlo
“Invest in your skin. It is going to represent you for a very long time.” — Linden Tyler

I updated my skincare routine after I took this video. I stopped using The Inkey List Retinol and added The Body Shop Anti-Imperfection Daily Serum, The Ordinary Niacinamide, The Ordinary Glycolic Toner, CosRX Pore Minimizer, GT Cosmetics Toner and Face Gel Moisturizer.
I don’t use The Ordinary Glycolic Toner everyday as the videos I watched said that 1-2 times a week or every other day is enough.
I noticed that my skin is glowing and my pores are less noticeable after using these products for months but I still got new pimples from wearing mask and I still see some pimple marks. It might be because of the kind of mask I’m using so I’m looking to try a different brand.
I also had a professional makeup done for an event and I noticed that the makeup looks way better now compared to last year when I also had my makeup done professionally to join another event.
Here’s a photo of my skin in 2020-2021 (grabbed from my blogpost How I Got Rid Of My Maskne and Hormonal Acne):
Here are my recent photos from last week of December and January 2nd this year:
