Confuse! Need Help!

🌸Good Day Everyone🌸 Let me start with an introduction of myself. I'm 32 years old, oily skin (hyperpigmentation, textured, dull skin, wrinkle undereyes) staying in humid country and new in exploring skincare knowledge. Hope is not late for me to start somewhere and truly appreciate your advise. 🙏❤ Every since becoming a busy stay home mum with a toddler, I feel less confidence in myself and insecure about my skin. Financial is very much restricted but im very sure there is affordable and good skincare products out there. At the end of this message, I will attach my current skin pictures. Reading & watching YouTube videos about skincare knowledge is exciting but yet overwhelming for me. I'm aiming to have healthy skin. I'm currently putting this brand on the look Cos De Baha, Iunik Cantella Calming Gel Cream and Beauty of Joseon Ginseng Essence. Recently, I also purchased Wishtrend Mandelic Acid but have yet to give a try. - Unsure on which skin concern & ingredients I should focus FIRST. - Recommendation on affordable products (toner, serum, moisturiser, sunscreen) - Looking for lightweight moisturiser that can be apply under make-up. I am truly appreciate with the help and advise given from everyone🙏❤Thank you so much!!!

For now, it is better for you to avoid chemical exfoliant like aha, bha and retinol. Just stick to the basic routine first and find a good cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen to suit your skin. You could also add some hydrating toner, essences and ampoule if your budget allows you. For recommendations: 1. cleansing oil/balm : to double cleanse your face and remove your makeup, usually once a day at night or depends on how frequently you wear makeup - heimish all clean balm / iunik calendula cleansing oil 2. cleanser : you can either pick a foaming or hydrating face wash. - soonjung whip cleanser 3. moisturizer : since you have oily and acne prone skin, a gel and lightweight moisturizer will work wonder for you - iunik centella gel cream or beplain hyaluronic moisturizer 4. sunscreen: - instree hyaluronic sunscreen : no whitecast - etude house mild airy finish sunscreen 5. Add on : - you can add the ginseng water and snail mucin if you want, but best for you to slowly introduce the products one by one to avoid breaking out

Your skin is gorgeous!!! I recommend you to stick at basic skincare first, there is cleanser, moisturizer and spf. if your skin addapt well with the basic, you can start using active ingredients such mandelic acid, any other AHA, BHA, Vit C or even retinol but don’t forget to start slow and do like 1-2 times a week. Good luck🤍

Thank you for the position words @ditaputri 🙏❤ I'm so much insecure with my skin and that positive message means much to me. I'm definitely looking into the products that you recommended above. Thanks for taking your time ❤❤❤
