    Liquid Foundation by Sungrace - Do you recommend it?

    Hi, I'm not familiar with the Sungrace brand, but I am asian as well with really fair skin. I don't like to use so much foundation because they tend to clog my pores. I tried many other brands that just gets caky and flaky by the end of the day. Now I use the tinted Radiant Defense liquid from Rodan and Fields that actually has skincare benefits and won't clog your pores. They give you a finished flawless look that is actually healthy for your skin. Feel free to PM me if you need more info.

    What's your favorite beauty device?

    I started to incorporate micro needling into my weekly routine to help stimulate growth of collagen to reduce fine lines. It was definitely a little intimidating at first to roll needles all over your face, but over time you do get used to it. I got the Glopro brand that had different attachments for face and lips.

    Dry skin and acne scar problem

    Hi there, I also experience problem with dry flaky skin myself and have tried so many different products that although helped but it doesn't last throughout the day. I am now using a combination of products from Rodan and Fields. I use their Active Hydration products for the eye and face and layer their Redefine Regimen on top for anti-aging. I found this combination to work well in my favor. It actually does lock in moisture for me throughout the day and does not make my skin oily by the end of day. Feel free to ping me with questions or you can check out my site below. Good luck!
  4. Keeping my skin feel hydrated throughout the day was a big challenge for me too. Ironically, I had just posted something similar replying to a post about ”my daily routine“, then saw your post trying to address an issue that I’ve been facing, so I thought I’d share again. In general I have very decent skin, but I have problem areas that gets affected by eczema once in a while that cause red itchy, flaky patches. Mainly on the forehead, on the sides of my nose, on the jawline and on my neck. It was very frustrating. I used to put on various type of products that “claim” will lock in moisture all day. After toning, I would put on a hydrating essence , then layer it with hydrating serum followed by moisturizer. After finishing up with my usual makeup routine, I would spritz the whole face with this grape water mist to try and lock in everything. However, by the end of the day I will still see skin flakes all around the face. T-zone is all oily. I‘ve tried all sorts of face mask ranging from korean hydrogel mask to high end magnet mask, which feels really good during application, but just not seeing much results after the fact. Then just like you, always looking for something else that would do a better job. I recently decided to try Rodan and Fields after seeing numerous posts of success stories from people I know. So this is what I started to incorporate into my daily routine and have so far seen really good results in terms hydration. So this is something I use during the day, at night then I would incorporate the cleansing mask from the Redefine regimen. I particularly like this cleanser because it’s like a cleanser and mask in one. It applies like a mask, you leave it for few minutes to dry which will help with deep cleaning the pores, it also has microbeads that will exfoliate when you go wash off the mask... It really does leave your skin baby soft. In any case, with this regimen shown in the photo, my skin is still feeling hydrated at the end of the day. I tell you, I was taken by surprise at the difference that I saw compared to everything that I used to use. It’s actually less step but more effective. Feel free to visit the links below for more info and let me know if you have any questions. Thanks. Step by step: 1. Applied the Redefine toner. (I don't usually cleanse my face in the morning with actual cleanser, just water) 2. Applied Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex around the eye, followed by the layer of Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream 3. Applied Active Hydration Serum all over the face, followed by a layer of Redefine Triple Defense Treatment

    What's Your Daily Skin Care Routine?

    I used to apply a hydrating essence under a hydrating serum along with a moisturizer and top it off face mist to help lock in moisture throughout the day. End result was I end up with flaky dry areas all around the face, my T-zone gets super oily and my makeup is just melted away. After scrapping all of my previous products and gave Rodan and Fields a true test, this is what I look like by the end of the day. I am truly amazed. My face and neck actually still feels hydrated. I am not seeing all the usual dry flakes around my forehead and lip area. I did not get oily around my T-zone. My makeup at the end of the day looks just like how I left the house this morning. And really, using the word makeup is a bit of a stretch because all I have on is a tinted sunscreen, finishing powder, little cheek blush and a little highlighter. A much simpler regimen that gave me better results that I've ever seen. Step by step: 1. Applied the Redefine toner. (I don't usually cleanse my face in the morning with actual cleanser, just water) 2. Applied Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex around the eye, followed by the layer of Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream 3.

  6. It’s hard enough as an adult to deal with their own skin problems, let alone a parent who has kids who suffer from skin problems, especially on their face. I just want to share a few real life photo of adult and kids, whose lives were changed after using this product.
