How can we protect our facial skin from any ingredients of our daily cosmetics?
Personally, I don’t wear a heavy make up on my daily activities. I only use CC or BB cream, compact powder, blush on, shading and eyelashes. It is just a simple make up but I need minutes for the application in the morning.
Even though I don’t wear a full make up, I still need to protect my facial skin from the ingredients that contain in each make up. Usually, I start to apply the skincare products in all over my face after cleansing my facial skin in the morning and at night. In my opinion, these skincare products can be functioned as the make up base and cover the skin pores from the maximum amounts of make up’s ingredients and any facial cream.
Types of skincare products that I prefer to apply every day
I really like to have the fresh feeling on my face before applying the make up. This is one of the reasons why I chose the water-based skincare products to freshen my facial skin and give the extra hydration.
There are 3 types water-based skincare products that I can’t live without every single day.
- Toning Water
- Treatment Essence
Milk Brightening Toner from Secret Key (http://www.secretkey.co.kr/)
Milk Brightening Toner from Secret Key
This is the facial toner that I used to apply in the past 2 or 3 months. I bought it in the pharmacy and I began to love this toner.
As stated in the packaging, this toner is intended for all skin types. It contains a milk protein extract :
- To gently exfoliate the skin and help restore the skin’s natural oil and moisture balance.
- Transforming lack luster skin into a clear and bright complexion.
Actually, the packaging is like any other toner packaging. It is packaged in the 248 ml plastic bottle with a simple lid, which easy to be opened. It means that we need to be careful if we put it in the bag or in the luggage as the toner liquid can spill anywhere.
The product texture
As it contains milk protein extract (97%), the liquid looks like the milk or a light milk. It is very liquid with no thickness at all.
How to use?
I simply apply the facial toner in a cotton pad, then I sweep gently over the facial skin and neck after cleansing the skin. I used to wait for about 30 seconds to 1 minutes until the ingredients are being absorbed into the facial skin, then I continue with next skincare application. I use this toner twice a day, morning and night.
After I apply this toner, I feel very fresh on my facial skin, moisturized, healthier and also hydrate. I feel my skin ready for the next skincare treatment.
Light Toning Water Moisture from Muji
To be honest, I really like this toning water. Actually, this is my first never ending bottle and I will repurchase it.

Unexpectedly, I have the similar result after applying Light Toning Water Moisture from Muji. I amaze but it happens on my face. This is the reason why I never skip applying this toning water.

My Overall Thoughts
Applying the skincare before make up is very important as it can protect our facial skin from any ingredients on our make up and other skincare products. I prefer to use the water – based skincare products to make our facial skin look fresh, hydrate as well glowing before make up application.
Our facial skin will have the healthy skin condition even though we use proper or heavy make up everyday.
