Oily Skin

If there is one thing that Korean skincare has perfected, it is hydration! With routines towards layering of hydration for plump, bouncy “chok chok” skin .  In order to address dryness it is important to lock all that hydration in with an essence.  In traditional Korean beauty standards, you would apply an essence after cleansing and toning, but before moisturizing and follow with a richer cream or oil. Do not forget to exfoliate once or twice a week to get rid of dead skin cells and aid in absorption of your hydrating products!

Combination Skin

The high oil production can leave pores congested but the good news is this makes you less prone to wrinkles and dehydration.  Oily skin types should require careful selection of your skincare and makeup products. Look for oil-free moisturizers, non-comedogenic products, and acne-fighting ingredients such as salicylic acid, glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and tea tree.

Stay away from thick heavier creams, oil-based makeup products because your skin can only absorb so much moisture, the rest is left sitting on the surface of your skin. This can lead to clogging pores and extra shine on your face.

It is critical to exfoliate dead skin cells that may result in pore blockages. Oilier skin is also prone to PIH(post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) which is likely to leave you with dark spots and acne scars. Regular exfoliation helps promote cell turnover, refine skin tone and texture as well as lightening scars.

Oily skin can be dry and some acne treatments contain ingredients that can dry the skin. You can find a facial moisturizer or serum with hyaluronic acid, a humectant that can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water – making it an excellent ingredient to help draw moisture into your skin.

Normal Skin

Normal skin type is one of the easiest types to care for but you have to remember that our skin can change over time due to seasons, aging, hormone level change, and life events.  If hormonal imbalances occur, you may experience dry or itchy skin or even cystic acne breakouts. It’s important to remain consistent with a regular skin care routine and most importantly with sun protection.  This type is one of the first skin types that show signs of aging and one of the main environmental factors that ages our skin is ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun.  This is because once they penetrate into the skin, they damage the collagen and inhibit the development of new collagen, leaving skin less firm and allowing fine lines and wrinkles to develop.  Add a good SPF 30 or greater and an anti-aging cream with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, ceramides, and retinoid.

Sensitive Skin

Finding the perfect beauty product that will not irritate your sensitive skin can be very challenging. Unfortunately, it is not easy to pin down a single cause for skin sensitivity; however, you may notice you develop symptoms in response to certain triggers.  Common trigger ingredients are fragrances or dyes, sulfates, parabens, and other harsh chemicals that can aggravate skin sensitivities and allergies. As sensitive skin requires cosmetic products that treat it gently while still being effective, seek out natural beauty products with fewer additives.  Choose skincare products with hypoallergenic, fragrance-free labels and those with soothing, healing, or anti-inflammatory properties such as green tea, snail mucin, centella asiatica, aloe vera, and propolis.
