1.) "Keep your routine simple and only introduce new products one at a time."
2.) "Do not over-exfoliate. Ease your actives into your routine. (Dilute them with your hydrating toner or a hyaluronic acid serum/lotion first and don’t combine with others.)"
3.) "My personal approach to treating my own skin when I break out is actually I treat it like it’s wounded. I’m actually extra, extra gentle… For me, I love ingredients like honey. Honey is so soothing, and so is centella asiatica. I love ingredients that are so focused toward healing and hydration, and I feel like that has worked a lot for my skin."
Check out some of Renée’s favourite K-Beauty products:
"It hydrates and soothes—and removes makeup like a beast."
“This is literally a liquid serum mixed with oils in a perfect proportion, so that when we apply it on our face, it just really kind of retains your hydration and your moisture balance. If you’re someone who doesn’t like oils or putting it on your skin, or you don’t like the oiliness of oils, then this is just perfect!”
“I feel like a good EGF serum like this is just a wonderful product to use in conjunction with any kind of Retinol or Retin-A treatment.”
“It’s like the perfect AHA for me… Not only does it hydrate my skin but I feel like it also additionally get rid of some of the blackheads, and keeps my pores really clean.”
“One of my favourite, favourite discoveries of 2017. It’s ultimately what I reach for whenever my skin feels a little dehydrated, a little lacking, in need of some soothing, comfort and care.”
“It’s very creamy in this beautiful, smooth way, but it absorbs instantly! And you don’t need to spend a lot of time rubbing this in, it just kind of absorbs and does not leave any sort of greasiness on your skin.”
“My favourite mask OF ALL TIME! This is pretty much what I fantasise a mask to be.”
“This is just a luxurious and nourishing hydrating toner that is jam-packed with beautiful plant ingredients. It’s calming, soothing, sooo hydrating.”
“It’s cooling, it’s moisturising, it’s just such a lovely moisturising product, especially if you have very oily skin. You can just layer this under sunscreen, or you know, makeup, and it’s still really nice.”
“Just really gentle, really mild, fantastic for dry and sensitive skin!”
