Whenever I’m sick to the point that any slight movement would prompt me to throw up, sleep is the only way to get through the day. Times like these aren’t easy to get by; long durations of toss-and-turn before finally falling to sleep, dehydration and mild malnutrition are not only attributes to poor physical and mental health, but also reflect on the skin.

First order of business to get my dermis back on track and function efficiently is IMMENSE HYDRATION. This current regimen restore my skin back to health within a week, and would have been quicker if I hadn’t made a silly blunder – mistaking Origins Peace of Mind® On-The-Spot Relief [ Write-Up ] as an acne buster σ(^。^;

DAY CARE | Objective: nourish and hydrate irritated, dry skin

Vichy Normaderm Daily Exfoliating Cleansing Gel
Clarins Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion with Aloe Vera [ Write-Up ]
Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Serum [ Write-Up ]
Origins Make A Difference™ Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment [ Write-Up ]
REN Photoactive Sun Veil SPF15 [ Write-Up ]

NIGHT CARE | Objective: hydrate and intensive repair

I did a bit of alternating here due to the nature of the products. I’m currently on my 3rd box of Ceramide capsules and this batch has a runny texture compared to the first, which is more on the gel side. As it flakes easily hence I counteract with the slightly thicker ANR serum, and alternate every 2 nights with the Filorga night cream which facilitates cell turnover.
