Korean skin care steps to get rid of acne effectively
Double cleansing is a very popular method with Korean skin-care enthusiasts. If you use it the correct way, oil cleanser is not only effective in cleansing but also very good in acne treatment.
Instead of removing makeup and cleansing products containing chemicals, double cleansing cleanses your skin with products such as facial cleansers, cleansing waxes or cleansers containing oil. According to the principle of "oil dissolves oil," the dirt in your pores including makeup, excess oil... will be swept out easily, thus limiting environment for the bacteria to reproduce, causing acne.
Finally, you should end the double cleansing step by using a mild cleanser. With some products, your face will feel very clean after the use, but this is not good at all. They also take away the moisture you need. This a sign of more oily skin, which increases the risk of acne.
Founder of South Korean skincare brand Soko Glam, Charlotte Cho once shared that the chemical exfoliation stage with AHA and BHA had helped her to "break down" acne in adulthood. Not only improve the surface of the skin, these are all acid groups that are effective in treating acne.
The acids in AHA gently exfoliate the surface of your skin, helping BHA to penetrate into the pores better. BHA will help to cleanse deeply, reduce excess oil and prevent acne from growing. In addition, using these acid groups to treat acne also has the effect of reducing blemishes after the acne is completely healed.
Special skin care products from Korea have become the "salvation" of women when they need to remove acne quickly. The patches made of hydrocolloid material attach to the surface of the skin and work by killing the bacteria that cause inflammation in place. Some patches even have the ability to absorb whiteheads and blackheads overnight, reducing the swelling of acne, redness immediately.
Treating dark marks with vitamin C and niacinamide
Korean skin care products often contain vitamin C and niacinamide, which are effective in treating dark marks caused by acne and even the skin color. Many women often do not pay attention to the skin after the acne is gone, this makes the skin looks older next to many visible blemishes.
Not only vitamin C and niacinamide, Korean acne treatment products also contain a lot of benign components such as extract from licorice root, centella asiatica, aloe vera... with amazing calming effect on skin inflammation caused by acne.
