Skincare Routine


1. Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash with Scrub Brush
Seriously this stuff makes my skin squeky clean
2) Tone skin with Witch Hazel
Just put some on a cotton pad with and swipe all over the face
Witch Hazel is great for toning because it is full of antioxidants, a natural antibacterial so great for acne users and also great for lightening acne scars
3) Dominance Hydro Active Fluid
(pretty self explanitory)
4) Sunsense Tinted SPF50 Suncream
 No matter the weather I always wear a sunscreen of SPF30 or above without fail. It is the best antiager and especially is you use acid-based products like me it is essential.
This suncream is formulated in Australia which for me is a lot more appealing since Australia's suncream regulations are a lot stricter due to the stronger sun


1) Cleanse and Tone the same as in the morning
2) Exfoliate with Paula's Choice Alpha-Hydroxy Acid Gel
Personally I prefer chemical exfoliants to physical exfoliants (scrubs) simply because they are much more effective. AHAs are good for hyperpigmented, sundamaged, normal to dry skins
BHAs (beta hydroxy acids) are good for acne prone, combo to oily skins.

3)MUAC's Skin Bleaching Gel
This is a great lightener for hyperpigmentation/acne scars as it does not contain hydroquinone and instead has Alpha-Arbutin which is a very effective natural lightener
4) Moisturize with E45 cream
This is a very thick cream so I wouldnt recommend for daytime use but if you have relatively dry skin like myself I recommend!


1) MUAC's 55% Lactic Acid Peel
I use this once a week. It is a fantastic deep exfoliant that chemically dissolves all dead skin right into the pores. Great the day before a party or for acne-sufferers as it really brightens the skin without any down-time
see: Makeup Artist's Choice for directions on how to use
2) 12.5% TCA Peel
I use this once a month mainly for my hyperpigmentation but it is also great for acne-sufferers, early wrinkles and brightening the skin
However, make sure you are not doing something very important for a week after the peel because obviously it will make your skin peel for about 4 days after but don't worry, once the skin has peeled, brighter younger looking skin is underneath :)
I do recommend that if you are just starting with peels to go for the 8% rather than 12.5%
see: MUAC for directions (and follow them)

What is your skincare routine?
