My skin has yet to reach the same optimal hydration levels it reached in late summer and early autumn of this year. I’m going to continue working in improving that. Last season I tried to do so by sheet masking with Lululun masks on a regular basis. This season I’ll try a hydrating serum, a new moisturizer/oil, and different sheet masks.

In terms of inflammation and generally “troubled” skin, I have been ok. My skin did breakout slightly after I had skipped chemical exfoliation for a week unintentionally, which goes to show that BHA and AHA does make a substantial contribution to my skin’s health and well-being. My skin texture is great; there has been no noticeable improvement on pigmentation.

This is my current skincare routine in December 2017.
