DIY Facial for Problem Skin


Tackle blemished and pigmented skin at the comfort of your very own home. We all have days where we want to pamper ourselves and keep our skin happy. For those of you out there suffering from blemished or pigmented skin, here’s a simple DIY regime to brighten your skin and keep those pesky spots at bay.


1. Exfoliate!

Gently exfoliating your skin will rid it off dead skin cells and residual dirt. It’s a must if you want to keep your skin healthy and glowing – an important step that is often neglected in most skincare routines.

I like to use Sloane Inc Crystal Clear Scrub. It’s packed with skin-smoothing bamboo micro-crystals, Vitamin E and (you guessed it) aloe. This exfoliating scrub is great for minimising your pores, and is definitely worth the splurge as just a little bit of the product goes a long way.

Another product that I absolutely adore is the Skin Food Black Sugar Mask Wash Off. To say that this mask smells heavenly would be an understatement. All you have to do is apply this on your face, scrub gently, and you’ll have your skin feeling porcelain smooth and soft in no time.


2. Tackle those pigments!

No one can deny that hyperpigmentation is a nuisance. Caused by the overproduction of melanin in the skin, it makes your skin look blotchy and uneven. It’s relatively common and usually harmless, but who wants their skin to look less than perfect?

I had the privilege to try out Sloane Inc’s new DermaBoost Glutathione. What’s Glutathione? Well, it’s said to be the ‘mother’ of all anti-aging antioxidants known for its longevity-enhancing, cellular detoxification, and skin whitening effects. It also helps inhibit melanin production in the skin, producing a fairer, lighter tone while also eliminating age spots.

Just mix one spatula of Glutathione powder with your favourite moisturiser, before massaging into skin. Using regularly on problem areas really helps in fixing dull and discolored skin. You can really see the difference.


3. Mask up!

We all love sheet masks. They’re soothing, relaxing and makes your skin feel wonderful afterwards with no prep required. Since the aim today is to brighten our overall complexion, I’d recommend Nature Republic’s Aqua Collagen Solution Hyaluronic Acid Hydrogel Mask.

It soaks your skin in collagen and also hyaluronic acid for a glowing, dewy complexion, so it’s one of my favourite masks to use that I save for a rainy day. I tend to reach for this mask after a particularly stressful day just to pamper myself.


4. A vitamin a day, keep the spots at bay!

Vitamin C, that is. This magic ingredient helps to reduce the visible sign of photo aging by fighting free radicals. These productive functions result in smooth, toned, and younger-looking skin.

Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial also helps in brightening spots and reducing the chances of having acne-prone skin due to Vitamin C infused in the solution.
