2-3 step skincare routine + best makeup removal

This is the routine I follow when I:
- want to quickly remove makeup and hydrate my skin
- I do not have time
- my skin feels sensitive and I do not want to use exfoliants or overwhelm it with a bunch of products

Healing acne from inside

This is part one of me sharing some experiences, trial and error, products etc. in fighting acne.
When talking about acne, the term "hormonal" is often used to describe adult acne. But it is a fact that acne always has something to do with hormones. And it has internal as well as external reasons.

My two cents on sunscreens

On my old blog I used to write about sunscreens a lot, since I think they are an important part of skincare in general. At least that is how I started caring for my skin since 2010 (when I finally had the money and interest for it).
I used to like those Biore alcohol-sunscreens, as they are easily absorbed into the skin and wear well under makeup. But when I went on a vacation at the beach, it happened: I was constantly reapplying my sunscreen yet I got freckles and discolorations like crazy. I thought: "What the hell? This is SPF 50!" My skin was getting worse and worse. Dehydration, large pores, brown spots. I still kept on using other alcohol sunscreens until I came across some reviews of Biore Aqua Rich Watery Essence. It is still often recommended and used by many bloggers. But why?(Maybe they are not as sensitive as me...)

Fragrance in skincare

I used to be the kind of person to avoid fragrance at all costs. Back in the day I used a lot of Japanese skincare - and they have many brands that generally produce only fragrance-free products.

Clogged Pores - Blackheads or sebaceous filaments???




Pore strips usually tear out just a part of the blackhead. Or is it not a blackhead? If it's not black but your pores are clogged with it, what is that?
