State of Skin: Skin Care Routine Update

Hey everyone! To start the year off (my Inglot post was scheduled prematurely, lol), I wanted to do a bit of a basics series. Let me begin with skin. 🙂 This is what my freshly-washed face looks like in the morning.

It lessens the risk of product wastage, too, in case anything gets lost, stolen, or broken. So, I have the Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge Complexion Serum & Dark Spot Corrector, which I am in the middle of testing.

Sometimes I interchange it with the Mustela Bébé Hydra-Bébé Facial Cream, which is light enough to use in the daytime, too. This method raises issues of hygiene, but honestly, just wash your damn hands before you dip your fingers in pots of product. …
