What beauty products should I use? Anonymous 13971

Hello, I'm a highschool student that has never used special beauty products.
I've always took good care of myself, showered every day, wash my hair with shampoo every 3 days, wash my face every morning and night.
All the products I used are: Showergell, soap, shampoo and hairmask.

Considering how many other products for hyegine exist like body butter, face masks, feetgell, face butter, hairfood, it starts to make me feel as if I'm not taking good enough care of myself.

>What products can I use for my face and what routine should I follow?

>What products can I use for my body and what routine should I follow?

Sorry if there are mistakes, english is not my native launguage.

You've got to be 18 to post here. Anyway, you have good hygienic habits. You don't need to add anything. The other products you mentioned like body butters and face masks aren't really about hygiene, they're about tackling problem areas (dry skin or dry hair for example) or preventing pre-mature aging. You don't HAVE to do those things. A lot of those things exist mostly for the beauty industry to make a lot of money anyway.

Don't worry about the huge range of products. Companies will try to make people feel like you have to buy all their stuff in order to do it right but it isn't true, in fact a simple routine often works better.
Instead of buying more stuff, you can try to improve your routine with your technique. For example, it's usually better to only put shampoo on your scalp, not the whole length of your hair. If you have thin or oily hair, do the opposite with conditioner/masks; only put it on the lengths.

That's what they want you to think to buy their products.

You most likely don't need any unless you have problematic skin, in that case go to a dermatologist instead of asking advice on an imageboard.

Korean and Japanese drugstore skincare is amazing for the price. Hadolabo and Cosrx come to mind as good cheap brands. For western brands, The Ordinary is great for actives and I love the moisturiser they have. Nipfab is another of my favs.
Start with just a cleanser and moisturiser and then try a chemical exfoliant like Cosrx's AHA/BHA, those are incredibly good for a myriad of skin issues. However, if you use an AHA make sure to wear sunscreen (which you should also invest in, Biore is cheap and effective).
Best of luck with your skin, anon!
