Trying Vitamin C for the Millionth Time + Skin Care Updates
I took a break from tret for my skin to heal (see my 1 week experience right here). In the meantime, I thought I would give a vitamin c product a try once again. I thought about purchasing a different product, but I decided against it. I wasn’t sure if it’ll be worth the splurge. Instead of shelling out on a new product, I remembered that I still have Melano CC Vitamin C Essence. Why not try this product?!!
I started using Melano CC Vitamin C Essence for the first time in the morning. The product felt nice on the skin. It absorbed quickly and didn’t feel sticky. I enjoyed applying it to my skin. I really miss this product now. 🥲 I’m excited about the results (if there’s any). Well, not much to say about the first day. On the second day, I also used it in the morning. The product was way too strong for my skin’s current state. I stopped using it after the second day. I waited for 4 days for my skin to become less sensitive. On the last day of the first week, I started using it again. This time, with a moisturizer. Let’s see how this goes!
Some other things I have been doing:
- Restarted tret. Only nights. When my skin is able to tolerate it.
- Moisturizing my skin daily, morning and night.
- Wearing sunscreen every morning. I’ve been using Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30. It’s not too bad for my skin at this moment. I’m leaning towards mineral sunscreens as well.
I do have a new skin care routine. I’ll post it up when I have a minute. 🙂
