Skincare help!

Hi! I've heard of so many good things about K-beauty, and I also want to give it a try. I'm looking for good skincare products. I'm a 16-year-old teenager with normal to dry skin, and I have a little bit of redness, pores, and tiny bumps(?) along my jaw.


Also, does anyone have a skincare routine for someone my age? I currently use a cleanser and moisturizer.


Thank you!

Re: Skincare help!

@sophiasong13 what's the weather where you are? Weird question I know but the products I use in the humid summer change to the chilly winters we have! 

Re: Skincare help!

I'm in Ottawa, Canada, so the weather's really hot in the summertime, and really cold in the wintertime.

Re: Skincare help!

@sophiasong13 I'm from Toronto and used to work in Ottawa so I know that weather! 


There are tons of cost effective kbeauty options my fav cleanser is the Cosrx good morning low ph cleanser which is like $11. It's a gel cleanser so pretty much anyone can use it. 


For a moisturizer just knowing we are about to to into the winter and entering the time when the air literally hurts your face - I like a thicker ceramide cream and then I'll switch it up to a lighter moisturizer once the spring comes back.  The Cosrx hydrium moisture power enriched cream was my last one that I loved and I'm using the Benton Snail Bee Steam Cream that @quspork mentioned - also great! They should both be around $20.


Also echoing the sentiment of needing a daily sunscreen - Purito has a fantastic chemical and mineral sunscreen depending on your preference for like $24.


Then you can start looking at targeted treatment for any bumps or concerns you might have 😊


I'm pretty sure everything I recommended can be found on Sukoshi or Bambeau which ships in Canada.

Re: Skincare help!

Thank you so much! I will definitely check that out.

Re: Skincare help!

Are you looking to replace your current cleanser and moisturizer, @sophiasong13 or just add to your current routine?

Re: Skincare help!

I would like recommendations for cleanser and moisturizer as well as adding to my current routine. It'd be appreciated if the products are affordable. Thank you!

Re: Skincare help!

Some moisturizer options: belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb 3.38 oz/ 100 mL, Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream, Benton Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream


I don't have any specific K-B cleanser recs bc I prefer western ones, so hopefully someone else will chime in with that. But once you have those plus sunscreen in place, you can look at adding a BHA to help with the pores and bumps. CosRx makes a gentle one that would be a good one to start with. @sophiasong13
