About Skincare Diaries

Welcome to Skincare Diaries! 

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Robert, and I am a skincare enthusiast/aficionado. I’m OBSESSED with skincare! 

How did it all begin? 

  • It all started during my teen and early adolescent years when I struggled with my skin the most. Even into early adulthood, I always had blemish/acne-prone skin.
  • It was pretty bad to the point where my entire face would flare up and get red all over with blemishes, zits, and more. I remember always being self-conscious about my skin and having low self-esteem because of it.
  • That’s where my obsession with skincare comes in! 

Trials and Tribulations

  • You see, back then I didn’t know what I know now about skincare. I tried everything back then to get my skin to where I want it to be.
  • I tried proactiv, it was all the rage by then, and it worked somewhat. but only when I used it consistently. I tried going to a dermatologist and getting professional help, I was put on acne medication and it worked temporarily but only while I used the medication consistently.
  • Frustrated that my skin was not improving as quickly as I wanted to, I realized that I had not been properly taking care of my skin.
  • This was when I realized that no matter what I tried, it would never work unless I followed through consistently. When I had this epiphany, I started to do my research on skincare.
  • I slowly began learning more about skincare and trying to see what I needed to do to get glowing skin.  

My Skin Now

  • Now well into my early 30’s, I have learned how to perfect my skincare routine to the point where I (mostly) have glowing and healthy skin just by taking proper care of it and following a strict skincare routine.
  • Learning about skincare was not easy. In fact, when I first got into skincare about 4 years ago, I realized that skincare was not really as popular as I thought.
  • There wasn’t really a market for skincare. This is why I decided to look into skincare myself, research my own products and what my skin needs, and it took me these past 4 years to perfect my skin to the point where it is at today.
  • Do you struggle with your skin?

  • Do you want to perfect your skincare routine?

  • Do you want to preserve your skin to keep it looking as youthful as possible?

  • This is where the skincare diaries comes in… the skincare diaries is a blog where I share with you my experience with skincare and my goal is to help others by educating them on skincare as well as learning together as this community grows.
  • I became obsessed with skincare roughly 3-4 years ago so I have experience with a lot of products from k-beauty, clean skincare, and many other popular products ranging anywhere from Tatcha to LaMer.
  • Over these past few years, I’ve tried a lot of products and I’m ready to share my experience with you hoping to get you inspired and invested in perfecting your skin. 

What is currently in my skincare routine? 

  • I’ll go more into depth about my current skincare routine in a dedicated blog post, however, I will mention a few of my favorite brands I’m currently using: Youth to The People, Tatcha, Caudalie, Fenty Skin (yes, I’m trying it out,lol), Dr. Dennis Gross, just to name a few. 
  • There are many other products I use that I will share with you soon, such as electronic devices (like Foreo) that I love to use.  
  • Love the skin you’re in! 
  • It’s so important to not only love yourself but also to love the skin you are in. Don’t forget to be kind to yourself and be kind to your skin. I look forward to learning and growing with you all and I hope you enjoy this journey.  

 

Be Kind to Your Skin,
