FIRST THING'S FIRST

UNDERSTAND YOUR SKIN TYPE


The most important step is to understand what your skin’s “home base” is so that you can identify what products and ingredients will work best for you.

DRY

You have very few visible pores and blackheads. Your skin can feel tight, itchy or even rough. You rarely experience an oily shine, even at the end of the day.

OILY

You frequently experience breakouts and have visible pores throughout your face. Early in the day, you have an oily shine and can feel oily residue when you touch your skin.

COMBINATION

You have visible pores along your T-zone, but are dry elsewhere. Your skin seems indecisive and unbalanced, sometimes dealing with dry patches and acne at the same time.

NORMAL

You rarely experience breakouts or are sensitive to products. You have small pores along the T-zone and experience a slight oily shine at the end of the day.

IDENTIFY YOUR SKIN CONCERN


Once you’ve identified your skin type, you can then take a look at what your key skin concerns are. Plus, receive personalized product recommendations and tips based on your skin concern when you sign up with your email below.

ACNE

INFLAMMATORY ACNE

Lesions on the skin that become inflamed and infected - this is typically what a “pimple” would be. The infection causes red and tender bumps on the skin, which can also be filled with pus and bacteria. The redness is actually caused by the white blood cells that rush to the area to fight and treat the infection!

CYSTIC ACNE

  • Cystic acne includes both cysts and nodules. This type of acne tends to take longer to treat. When bacteria within the pore spreads and infects other nearby follicles, cystic acne develops deep within the skin. Make sure you take great care with treating these as they can easily leave scars and hyperpigmentation.

Nodules are large, painful, hard lumps below the surface of the skin. Cysts are extremely painful and can take on the appearance of boils. They are similar to nodules but they are softer to the touch and filled with pus.

COMEDONAL

Also known as blackheads and whiteheads, comedonal acne is caused when hair follicles get clogged with trapped dirt, sebum, and debris.

HYPERPIGMENTATION

Pigmentation and discoloration is the skin’s response to damage or inflammation in the skin.

Melanocytes are the pigment (melanin) producing cells within the skin.

One of the most common is hyperpigmentation induced by sunlight. This type of hyperpigmentation looks like small lesions that are slightly darker than the surrounding skin tone.

Another common type of hyperpigmentation is melasma, which can often happen during pregnancy.

ANTI-AGING

Aging skin presents itself most typically in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles - particularly around the eyes, mouth and forehead.

As we get older, cell turnover as well as collagen and elastin production tends to slow, making the skin start to appear dull and sag.

Fine lines, wrinkles and the like may be inevitable overall, but you can slow down the process with the right skin care products and ingredients

These three are the most common concerns, but this might not be you!
Other frequently found skin concerns are dryness, oil control, redness and sensitivity.

TIME TO TAKE NOTES

TREATING YOUR SKIN EFFECTIVELY


Now that you’ve identified your skin type and concern, it's time to get tangible results! You’ll want to pay attention both to ingredients that are beneficial for your skin type, and also contain actives that can help address your concerns.

We've made it easy by curating skin concern duo sets to get you started with the right products and ingredients.

ACNE

Acne is complicated, but when you use the right products you can effectively treat, prevent and manage it when it does happen!

It’s important to use the proper products for your skin type - using the wrong ones can increase oil production leading to unnecessary breakouts.

Exfoliation is a major way to help get acne of all types under control - there are two types to understand:

Chemical exfoliation means utilizing acids to help clear pores - common chemical exfoliators are AHA’s (Alphahydroxy Acids - like lactic and glycolic acid), BHA’s (B… like salicylic acid) and PHA’s.

Physical exfoliation means using an ingredient that gently sloughs off dead skin.

INFLAMMATORY ACNE

In addition to regular exfoliation, it is also great to add anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial ingredients to help soothe skin and fight inflammation. Anti-inflammatory ingredients include green tea extract and cica, and antimicrobial ingredients include propolis, honey and tea tree oil.

CYSTIC ACNE

Exfoliate regularly and incorporate anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial ingredients to your routine. Certain patch products - like the Acropass Trouble Cure - have microneedles that can help deliver actives deeper into the skin, to help soothe and heal cystic acne quicker. Depending on the severity and frequency of your cystic acne, we also recommend consulting with a dermatologist.

COMEDONAL

Exfoliation is key! Adding chemical exfoliation once or twice a week in your skincare routine can help clear up your skin and prevent future breakouts. AHAs like lactic acid and glycolic acid, or BHAs like salicylic acid are best to incorporate into your routine.

HYPERPIGMENTATION

Protect your skin with a comprehensive skin care regimen - including a strict SPF routine to help shield the skin to avoid further triggering melanocyte over-production.

Over-the-counter treatments that can improve hyperpigmentation include kojic acid, glycolic acid, vitamin C, arbutin, niacinamide, and azelaic acid

ANTI-AGING

Vitamin B3 (also known as niacinamide) strengthens the skin’s barrier, which helps your skin retain moisture more efficiently. It brightens and evens out the complexion and, like retinol (which isn’t commonly found in K-beauty since it can be irritating), it has demonstrated an ability to boost collagen production.

  • Products with peptides penetrate through the skin barrier to repair damage and signal your skin to boost collagen and elastin production - thus giving your skin a plumper, more youthful appearance.
  • Look for ingredients that boost cell turnover like snail mucin, rice water or fermented extracts for brighter, smoother skin
