12 Asian Skincare Secrets

There’s not really anything secretive about a solid, skincare routine. But I guess the secret part about it is knowing what products to use. And trust me, I don’t spend very much at all on my skincare products nor do I purchase big celebrity brands.

1. Wash your face first thing in the morning

Always wash your face in the morning with warm to hot water. Warmer water helps open up those pores and in combination with a facial cleanser is going to help clear and waken your face up first thing in the morning.

These facial cleansers are the two of my go-to facial cleaners from Neutrogena that I like to go back and forth with. And you honestly can’t go wrong with either of them.

2. Wash your face before bedtime

Practice what you do in the mornings at night before you go to sleep. You don’t ever want to go to bed without cleansing your face. Think about trapped oil in your pores that can potentially create unwanted pimples. I use the same cleanser I use in the mornings at night.

3. Use a face masque

Out of all of the skincare products I purchase, my face masque is the most expensive. And it’s still not nearly as expensive as other face masques out there.

The reason why I always use this face masque is that this skincare line is what my mom used at the day spa that she owned. And I’ve been using it for over 10 years and absolutely love it.

4. Use a toner

Toners work wonders for oil skin textures. It removes excess dirt and impurities that are still left after cleansing your skin.

5. Get a vitamin C serum

Vitamin C serums are one of the best things you can use for your skin. It’s got antioxidant properties that prevent the forming of free radicals which break down collagen and elastin. And its got skin firming, brightening, and collagen-boosting benefits.

6. Hyaluronic acid serum

Along with collagen and elastin, naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in our bodies decrease as we age. And that’s why adding hyaluronic acid serums is essential to your skincare regimen. It brings moisture to your skin and helps keep your skin stay moisturized throughout the day.

7. Use a water-based face moisturizer

The last thing you might want to do is slather on a moisturizer if you have oily skin. But that’s why they made water-based moisturizers and oil-free moisturizers. Switching my cream moisturizers for a water-based moisturizer was one of the best skincare moves I’ve made.

8. Always wear sunscreen

Exposure to UV rays is cumulative and causes the skin to age by breaking down the skin’s collagen. So it’s very important to always wear sunscreen prior to going outside.

9. Put on retinol cream before bed

Retinol cream benefits include preventing wrinkles and smooth out existing wrinkles. It also helps regulate oily skin and minimize current and future breakouts. I only use my retinol cream during my nightly skin routine.

10. Drink a ton of water

It’s no surprise that drinking a ton of water is one of the Asian skincare secrets. Water is the number 1 beverage in any Asian household. And with adequate hydration, you’re bound to reap the benefits of water such as weight loss, improved skin elasticity, increased energy level, and more.

11. Sleep

Your body repairs itself when during sleep including your skin. And this is the time your skin makes new collagen.

12. Clean up your diet

A diet rich in whole foods like vegetables and fresh fruits and other unprocessed foods can specifically benefit your skin health. And it’s a huge plus when you see weight loss results too.

The Order Of Skincare Routine

My morning and nightly routine are very similar in terms of the order of products I use. But there’s still a difference.

Morning Routine

  1. Wash my face
  2. Put on toner using a cotton pad
  3. Use vitamin c serum
  4. Then hyaluronic acid serum
  5. Hydroboost water-based moisturizer (or sunscreen if I leave the house)

Nightly Routine

  1. Wash my face
  2. Put on toner using a cotton pad
  3. Use vitamin c serum
  4. Then hyaluronic acid serum
  5. Retinol cream
  6. Hydroboost water-based moisturizer

Once Or Twice A Week

About once or twice a week, I’ll incorporate a peel into my skincare regimen and also put on my face masque for about 20 to 30 minutes.
