My skin brightening routine: 4 products + 3 tips to get your skin glowing

Once upon a time, I loved being in sun and hated wearing sunscreen. I know, the horrors. By the time I realized my mistake, my skin had lost its glow and looked dull + uneven.

I used to be really bad with sunscreen (even though i live in a place with strong sun all year round??) but i'm starting to repent now. LOVE the inclusion of the Sekkisei Lotion - I incorporated it into my skincare regime about 6 months back, but within 2 weeks I already could see that it worked wonders for my skin, it looks brighter and smoother. I pat it on first with cotton pad, and then a second layer using my hands.

I find that it works wonderfully when paired with the Sekkisei serum, or the DHC P2H4 Watergel. Until today I'm not exactly sure how the Sekkisei Lotion works, but it works and it's become the core of my holy grail skincare regime.

Tempted to try SKII, but I doubt whether my skin can accept ferment. Since it's so pricey anyway, I might hold it off for a bit longer...

Thanks for reading! The Sekkisei Lotion definitely deserves more love, especially since it's such an effective brightening product. Glad to hear it worked well for you as well! I haven't tried their serum yet, but I'm definitely curious now! Unfortunately the DHC P2H4 Watergel isn't sold in the US, but I will have to check it out when I go back to Taiwan next year.

See if you can get a sample of the SK-II, or a decant from a friend who owns one. It should only take a few days (at most) to see the results!

It was so sunny when I walked out the door today and I was like "darn I wish I wore sunscreen." It's a bad habit I got to stop! I definitely want to try the Vitamin E mask and the Sekkisei Lotion!

Once you get into the habit it'll come so naturally you won't even think twice about it! :P I can't recommend the Vitamin E Mask enough, it's such an amazing + affordable product!

Love this post! I'm on the same page as you on the SK-II essence. I stopped using it because I wasn't seeing any results, but this time around it feels different! Their packaging is to die for!

Thank you Valerie! It's curious how our skin changes over the years and how misses suddenly become hits!

I used to not wear sunscreen a few years back but this has changed now, I cannot leave the house without applying some and it's became a habit of mine. I really need to get my hands on the Klairs Vitamin E mask!
