My skin has been doing well, similarly to spring. I’ve been focusing in my hyperpigmentaion or PIH, making significant progress thanks to my use of target serums like TO Alpha Arbutin, but still a log way to go. Sun freckles are fading well but scars are not.

Breakouts are so minimal that I am considering reducing my regular facials from monthly to quarterly. Isolated whiteheads still appear from time to time, but not around that time of the month and they can be tamed in the first round with use of hydrocolloid bandages. 
This is my current skincare routine for summer.
