My Lazy Day 3-Step Korean Skincare Routine for Oily, Acne-Prone Skin

Some days, I feel too tired or too lazy to do my 7-step or 10-step skincare routine. Other days, I simply have no time since I have to get myself and my baby ready at an early time. On these days, I use only 3 skincare products to get ready which includes sunscreen. After I apply these 3 products, I simply put on my lipstick and leave.

Since I've started taking my skincare seriously, I've been confident enough to not wear foundation, cushion or bb cream, just bare-faced. I have days where my skincare routine is extensive, full of masks, I kind of call these days my mask days but that's for another blog post. If you compare this to a diet then my mask day is sort of my cheat day where I treat my skin to a nutrient buffet, complete with exfoliation.

Lazy Day 3 Step Korean Skincare Routine
My 3-step skincare consists of cleansing oil, multi toning essence and sunscreen.

Step 1: Cleansing oil
For oily, acne-prone skin gals like me, I highly recommend using a cleansing oil. Why? It only gets rid of the icky sebum and leaves the good oils on the skin. Plus, it's really gentle on the skin.

Step 2: Multi Toning Essence
Actually, on the second step, I used to use only serums or essences but now, I use the Nella Multi Toning Essence because it has three functions as a lotion, toner and essence. I use it mainly because it's an essence and it tones. Previously, I've skipped out on the toning part on my lazy days but using this multi toning essence is a way better option.

Multi Toning Essence I use: Nella Honey 1 Snail Multi Toning Essence.

Step 3: Sunscreen
As someone who has oily skin, I prefer a lightweight and non-sticky sunscreen. Of course, I also prefer using sunscreens that don't make my face look too white since I usually go out bare-faced. The Petal Velvet Sunaway is still my all-time favorite sunscreen because it has a nice finish and it gives me a pinkish glow (my face easily reddens).

Sunscreens I love: Rire Silky Light Sun Milk Sunscreen & Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway.

When I go out and I get into talks about skincare, people are usually surprised to hear that I'm not wearing makeup except for lipstick. Although, personally I think the Althea Petal Sunaway has made all the difference. Of course, my skin is far from perfect. A closer look will show you my huge pores.

This skincare routine is quick and it still gives me the glass skin I love. Of course, it only works if you still exfoliate and use masks at least once a week. Whenever I skip out on exfoliation and masks, I start finding a pimple or two popping out since I have oily, acne-prone skin.

How about you? What’s your lazy day skincare routine?
