Blemish-free skin, clear skin, baby skin— call it whatever you like, good skin is always something to be desired. While not everyone is blessed with good genetics, patience and consistency with your skin care can bring a lot of wonders in the long run.
For those new to the world of skincare, and even for the seasoned ones, putting together a routine that fits your needs can be quite intimidating and challenging with so many things to consider, so many ingredients to know about, and so many brands to try. But it’s important to remember that each skin is different. Whether you choose to try the 10-step Korean method or go minimalist with just 3-steps, it’s important to pin down the basics, then explore. From there, go for whatever works for you.
START WITH A CLEAN BASE: CLEANSE
There’s a reason cleansing comes first– it rids your skin of the day’s gunk, oil, and other unwanted debris to prepare your skin for the good stuff. iWhite Korea’s Acne+ Facial Wash helps fight against acne and blackheads by detoxifying the pores and clearing impurities. This is done with the help of wonder ingredients Tea Tree Extract known for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, and Salicylic Acid which helps regulate sebum production and skin renewal. But a facial wash just doesn’t clean, it should also be gentle enough not to strip the skin and this product does just that. If you’re looking for a good cleanser that helps protect your skin barrier and retains moisture, this is the one for you.
PREP AND PRIME: ACNE+ TONER ESSENCE
Now that your skin is squeaky clean, it’s time to tone. Think of this step as a boost to help your skin absorb all of the good ingredients for maximum effect. And what’s great is that iWhite Korea’s Acne+ Toner Essence is both a toner and an essence, giving your toning step an extra boost. Toners are used to balance skin pH, while essences give your skin more hydration, hitting two birds with one stone.
The Acne+ Toner Essence is formulated with Centella Asiatica (Real CICA) extracts, Tea Tree Leaf water, and is enhanced through Memory Gel Technology that helps repair your troubled skin, and control oil/sebum build-up. Staying true to Korean skincare’s priority on hydration, this product is also alcohol-free. Keep in mind that some toners contain alcohol and can potentially strip your natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation.iWhite Korea makes the product choice easy for you.
LOCKED AND LOADED: ACNE + AQUA MOISTURIZER
Moisturizers are probably one of the most important basic products in skin care. They are meant to hydrate and lock in the nutrients from your previous products. You might think that all moisturizers are the same, but some work better for certain skin types much like any
other product. To help your skin hydrate, iWhite Korea’s Acne+ Aqua Moisturizer is light on the skin thanks to its water-based formula and can be used both in the morning and at night. Packed with Centella Asiatica extract, Aloe Vera, and Cabbage Leaf extract, this product will help smoothen, nourish and strengthen your skin for that bouncy and dewy feel.
When it comes to skincare, always choose the products that complement your skin, with formulas and ingredients backed by science. It pays to read the label since many beauty products contain preservatives or chemicals that could irritate or dry out your skin. If you have sensitive skin, make sure to do a patch test– place a pea-sized amount of product behind your ear or along your jawline, and wait a day or two to make sure that you will not react before applying it to your whole face.
It’s important to remember that achieving flawless, smooth, and glowing skin is a combination of taking care of it from inside and out. Rest your body, get good sleep every night, manage your stress, and eat healthily.
Most importantly, as iWhite Korea would always say, remember to take care of yourself first– – I, First.
