For as long as I can remember, I didn’t have anything to call “my skincare routine”. I have always been the kind of girl who didn’t really care about looking good. I blame myself for being always around boys (at home, at school, and everywhere) that I started acting and thinking like them. There was a phase in my life where I would rather be a boy because it was sooo easy to be one, LOL.
Anyway, I was already struggling with my skin since I was 12. You know, because of puberty and all that shiz. I would always just use a facial cleanser, a toner and, sometimes, an anti acne cream to keep my skin from looking like a disaster. Having an oily and acne-prone skin back then, stocking up on cleansers and acne creams with a high salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide concentration was a must for me, especially when visiting the United States (because the Philippines, my first home, didn’t have a wide variety like the United States has). I would choose brands like Clean & Clear, Clearasil or Pond’s. They worked in drying up my acne, but they just never really got rid of them?
