Here’s What Beauty Influencers Say in Building a Skincare Routine
You suspect your skin to be dry, oily, combination of both, acne-prone, and so on.
Regardless, it pays to take a minute to assess what your truly skin needs.
Nowadays, it has become so easy to waste time and money trying to find the perfect product with a ton of beauty hacks all over the Internet. There’s the -step skincare regimen here and the must-try products there. It’s been hard to cut through all the noise. However, skincare is personal—no one knows your skin better than you do. If not careful, you could be worsening the very skin issues you’re trying to eradicate.
Take these pieces of advice from your local beauty influencers, so you’ll know what to do the next time you’re in the cosmetic aisle.
For Katrina De Guzman, a Tiktok influencer known for her “acidic journey” and makeup tutorials, it is important that you listen to your own skin. “If it becomes too dry and is stripped off of its natural oils, it’s best that you stop with too much cleansing,” she said. “Our skin has to be pampered and cleaned, but do not overdo it.”
Kat has a combination of dry and oily skin, not to mention sensitive. “I experience dryness, especially on the sides of my face, but oily in my T-zone,” she shared. So she is also picky when it comes to what she puts in her face. “First, I look for a product that has good ingredients, mainly natural ones. Next is the benefits—I choose skincare that suits my skin and what it needs.”

With this, it can be tricky to choose the best cleansing product that can take care of such delicate skin. Thankfully, Clarins offers a Purifying Gentle Foaming Cleanser that is especially made for combination to oily skin. It water-activates into a silky foam that gently and effectively removes impurities and pollutants. Formulated with mattyfing natural extracts, it leaves the skin feeling refreshed, shine-free, and pristine clean.
Healthy skin is more than just genes and heredity. What you see in the mirror is also a matter of daily effort you put into taking care of your skin, regardless of how hectic your schedule is. Take for example Pat Cortez, whose day runs differently everyday as a visual artist slash makeup content creator slash YK fashionista.
“There are days wherein I have to pack orders for my business, film skincare or makeup content, or take whole day shoots,” she explained. “One thing that’s consistent though is the skin care pamper session first thing in the morning and last thing at night… I never miss out.”
“Even on days when I’m so tired, you’ll never see me without moisturized skin. It’s an important step. Done consistently, the results really do pay off.”
Pat also revealed she has found her skincare best friend. “Oils are my absolute game-changers,” she disclosed. “I always double cleanse with any oil based cleanser, even on days when I don’t wear makeup.”
If you’re like Pat who has a lot going on in her life that requires heavy use of makeup and is fond of oil-based formulas, Clarins Total Cleansing Oil could be your best friend, too. It’s a refreshing, easy-rinse, lightweight oil cleanser that turns into a silky milk and easily dissolves long-wearing, heavy, and waterproof makeup and pollutants.
With an overwhelming number of facial masks, creams, and serums in the market you can try, the lifestyle and beauty vlogger Kylie Celebre reminded that it’s important to keep your skincare regimens simple. “I normally do a minimum of two cleansings per day. If I go beyond that, I limit it to a maximum of three,” she told. “So for people who do a little over that, don’t. It can cause breakouts.”
Take it from a person whose skin type is oily with bumps here and there plus acne marks. “I focus on gentle products… Nothing too harsh,” Kylie ascertained. This makes Clarins Soothing Toning Lotion the perfect skincare item. It is a soothing plant-based and alcohol-free face toner that gently tones and hydrates the skin, while still maintaining a normal level of bacteria in healthy skin.
