[OxygenCeuticals] The Magic of Toners

The Truth about Toners

It’s been all over the internet. Toners are great for your skin. Toners are terrible for your skin. This dermatologist says you should tone twice a day! This dermatologist says throw those toners away!


Poetry aside, before we ask ourselves if toners are necessary in our skincare routines. We have to understand what they are and what they’re supposed to do.

Back in the good ol’ days (I’m talking the 90s and early oughts, what a time!), toners were usually filled to the brim with alcohol and other ingredients known as ‘astringents’, meant to clear the pores and tighten up the skin. While these toners did technically do their jobs, they also horribly damaged the skin’s defensive barrier, leaving it red, irritated, and exposed to further external damage. I remember being an acne-prone teen, lathering on my astringent toner, clenching my teeth through the stinging and still wondering why my acne would just not go away!

So, dermatologists came to a conclusion: toners? “Who needs ‘em? Throw ‘em out!” And in the case of these ‘astringent’ toners, that is definitely the truth.

But, times have changed and toners these days have so much more to offer than those of the past.

Is Toning Really Necessary?

Toner can have a place in everyone’s skincare routine, regardless of their skin type! As a matter of fact, there are toners designed to treat dry skin, sensitive skin, oily skin, combination skin, normal skin, acne-prone skin, and more!

Overall, a good toner should refresh your skin and clear off any extra residue left after cleansing without damaging the moisture barrier.

How OxygenCeuticals does Toning

OxygenCeuticals has a great selection of toners to choose from according to your skin type! Each of our toners is specially formulated to handle a variety of skincare concerns from dry and aging skin to oily, acne prone skin to overheated, sensitive skin!

OxygenCeuticals’ Nutrient Toner

One of my absolute favorite toners created by any skincare brand, the Nutrient Toner, is an essence type toner suitable for dry and aging skin. It’s formulated with Hyaluronic Acid which moisturizes and nourishes the skin. Portulaca Oleracea Extract (Or Little Hogweed for the less botanically-inclined) protects the skin by enhancing the skin’s protective barrier. And finally, Allantoin, a chemical compound found naturally in several plants like Chamomile and the Sugar Beet, soothes and calms irritated skin.

To use it: After cleansing, soak a cotton pad with the toner and apply it to the skin to rid the skin of any leftover residue.

A special tip! If you have a particularly dry spot on your skin, soak a few cotton pads with the Nutrient Toner to create a DIY mummy mask and let the nutrients soak into and hydrate the skin.

OxygenCeuticals’ Skin Balancing Toner

The Skin Balancing Toner is a water-type toner with a pH of 5.5. This toner is meant to regulate sebum and balance the skin’s moisture levels after cleansing. It can improve the skin’s overall texture while also moisturizing and enhancing the skin’s immunity with herbal ingredients.

Its naturally-derived, herbal ingredients, Centella Asiatica Leaf Extract and Freesia Refracta Extract, are traditionally used in Chinese medicine to soothe and calm the skin. Lavender Extract controls the skin’s sebum production.

These properties make the toner a miracle for anyone with inflamed acne-prone or irritated skin.

To use: After cleanser, apply the toner onto the face with a cotton pad and wipe away any leftover residue from cleansing.

OxygenCeuticals’ Toning Gel

OxygenCeuticals’ Toning Gel is a different kind of toner. This toner starts out with a light, gel consistency that immediately becomes liquid upon application to the skin. Its soothing ingredients, like Centella Asiatica and Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extracts relieve sunburn, atopy, irritation, and pain.

This makes it perfect for the summer time as well as after skincare procedures like microneedling that leave the skin feeling a bit pained!

But it also has another function! The addition of adenosine in the formula makes it anti-aging as well. Adenosine is known to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The Toning Gel is so multi-functional that we love to mix it with some of our other products to maximize its benefits. For example, mix it with the Clarifying Mask to create a soft, creamy consistency that allows the mask to stay moist for longer and allows your skin to absorb all the nutrients from the Kaolin Clay.

Or, for a hydrating sleeping mask, mix it with our HA Gel to create an ultra-moisturizing gel mask to wear overnight!

To use the toning gel:

  1. Apply an adequate amount to the face at the toner step.
  2. Gently tap into the skin to fully absorb.

Cryogenic Activator

But what if you need something thats quick and simple? A mist toner might be just the thing! OxygenCeuticals’ Cryogenic Activator is an oxygen-infused deep sea water mist that soothes and cools the skin instantly.

It’s the perfect toner for extremely sensitive skin, such as a skin that has become sensitized due to plastic surgery or facial procedures like laser, peeling, or microneedling therapy.

Formulated with Deep Sea Water from the Korean East Sea, it contains minerals and nutrients that strengthen the skin’s immune system and keep it healthy. Meanwhile, pure oxygen soothes and accelerates the healing of damaged skin.

It’s so good that we recommend spas and hospitals to use it during pre/post procedural care after their clients’ treatments!

To use the Cryogenic Activator:

  1. Spray onto the skin at about a 10-15cm distance.
  2. After surgery or facial treatment, use as a mist or mummy mask (for soothing) by wetting cotton pads.

D:O2 Activator

And last, but certainly not the least, is OxygenCeuticals’ D:O2 Activator! You can think of our Cryogenic Activator but with double the O2 and double the power! D:O2, or Double Oxygen Boost Activator is another mist type toner that soothes and cools the skin.

This mist is no joke, either. The D:O2 Activator can cool down the skin by a few degrees immediately after use, soothing the skin and reducing inflammation. The D:O2 Activator contains Deep Sea Water from the Korean East Sea with nutrients to improve your skin’s immune system. Pure oxygen soothes and accelerates the healing of damaged skin. In fact, our clinical research has found that the D:O2 Activator facilitates about 40% faster skin recovery after a procedure.

In addition, Oxygen has amazing antioxidative effects (it’s practically in the name). Our clinical research has found tht there is a significant decrease in harmful ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) production on skin when treated with 1,000 ppm of our oxygen-infused deep sea water.

Finally, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate acts as a Natural Moisturizing Factor that keeps the skin hydrated for longer. The D:O2 is a triple-threat toner that will keep your skin healthy and glowing!

To use the D:O2 Activator:

  1. Spray an adequate amount onto the face at toner step.
  2. Reapply onto the skin as needed.

Conclusion

So there we have it! The toners of the past may have become obsolete with their harsh actives and stripping astringents, but now, toners can do so much more. OxygenCeuticals’ toners come in a variety of types, textures, and uses, all with healthy skin in mind.

So, take your pick and discover the magic of OxygenCeuticals’ toner line!

Breathe life into your skin!

Until next time!

[OxygenCeuticals] Routine for Sagging Skin

Sagging Skin (and its causes)

Whether due to age or hormones or even just exposure to the elements, over time, skin begins to lose its elasticity and start ‘sagging.’ This is because your skin stops producing collagen at its normal, rapid rate, thereby losing elasticity and firmness.

Depending on the cause of your sagging skin, there are several different approaches to improving it. OxygenCeuticals offers some simple, topical solutions to improve the appearance of sagging, tired skin.

1. Cleansing

Cleansing is the first step of any skincare routine. Your skin has to be clean in order for any of your amazing serums and ampoules and creams to absorb into your skin!

But, you need the right cleansers washing your face! Harsh cleansers can strip your skin of its natural protective oils leading to dry, irritated skin! Dry skin can lead to excess oil production or weakened skin elasticity. Luckily, OxygenCeuticals has a great collection of cleansers to choose from!

For first step cleansers, we have:

  • Double Makeup Remover
    • A botanical oil-based cleanser for removing makeup from the eyes, lips, and face. Cleanses without causing irritation. Good for all skin types including sensitive skin.
    • Key Ingredients: Soybean Oil / 4 Vegetable Oils / Dendropanax Morbiferus Extract

      1. Take an adequate amount and add a couple drops of water to emulsify.
      2. Gently rub all over the face.

    • How to Use (as a makeup remover) :

      2. Gently apply on skin and rub.

Moving on to the second step: foam cleansers. OxygenCeuticals has two amazing options to choose from!

      2. Gently apply on the skin and rub.
      3. Rinse with lukewarm water
        • Great for sensitive or acne-prone skin types.

2. Toners

You might remember a time when toners would be filled with alcohol, astringents, and other harsh tightening ingredients meant to “clarify” the skin to prevent excess oil production. Sadly, those toners would only cause more harm than good.

Luckily, we’re past the age of those toners. Let us show you exactly what OxygenCeuticals has in store!

Nutrient Toner

Essence type toner suitable for dry and aging skin. Nourishes and hydrates the skin, making it soft and smooth.

One of our bestselling toners, the Nutrient Toner contains Hyaluronic Acid, Allantoin, and Portulaca Oleracea Extract. Hyaluronic Acid, also known as Sodium Hyaluronate, is a humectant. A humectant is a substance that helps the skin hold in moisture. Therefore, this toner will keep water from evaporating from the skin and leave it full and bouncy. Allantoin is an anti-aging ingredient that aids in the process of skin cell turnover. This means it will keep the skin smooth once the dead skin layer is shed off. Dry, dead skin can appear flaky and result in the formation of fine lines.

When using this toner, your skin will feel like it’s drunk its fill of pure moisture and it will continue to feel that way for a long time, as it’s formulated to keep the moisture in.

To use this toner, after cleansing:

  1. Soak a cotton pad with the toner.
  2. Wipe the pad across the face to remove impurities and hydrate the skin.
  3. This toner can also be used to make a DIY mask pack by soaking cotton pads in the toner and leaving them on dry spots on the face for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the toner to properly soak into the skin.

Toning Gel

Centella Asiatica and Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extracts in Toning Gel relieve sunburn, atopy, irritation, and pain on the skin, especially after facial treatments.

OxygenCeuticals’ Toning Gel is a ultra-light and fast absorbing gel toner with a water-like consistency upon application. It’s soothing ingredients, Centella Asiatica Leaf and Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extracts, relieve irritation and pain on the skin, especially after facial treatments.

But it doesn’t just sooth. It also contains anti-aging agents, Adenosine and Allantoin, to improve skin elasticity and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Its versatility is what makes the Toning Gel such a great product.

You can use it as a toner after cleansing by applying it to the skin and then patting until absorbed. However, it has a few more wonderful uses!

  • To create an ultra hydrating mask, mix with the HA Gel.
    • Apply the mixture (1:1 ratio) on your skin and leave it on for 15-30 minutes.
    • Wash it off with lukewarm water.
      • If you’re a spa or esthetician, leave on during Oxygen Mist Therapy for an extra boost of nutrients!
  • For atopic dermatitis:

Other uses include:

  • As a conducting gel for ultrasonic wave treatment
  • As a cooling gel after waxing

3. Peeling

Every once in a while, you have to exfoliate your skin. Maybe once or twice a week, depending on your skin type and what products you use. Exfoliating is essential for those who want a brighter, healthier glow on their skin. And that’s because exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells by breaking the bonds that glue them together, allowing new skin cells to rise to the surface.

Exfoliating, or peeling, can also be a kind of ‘third-step’ of cleansing. Your exfoliating product can get rid of any of the deeply hidden dirt and debris in your pores that your first two cleansers missed.

Peeling can help get rid of the damaged skin cells that manifest as fine lines or wrinkles on your face. Peel away those cells and replace them with bright, soft, youthful skin!

Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel

Physical exfoliant with pineapple and papaya extracts. Exfoliates dull skin and unclogs pores to remove dead skin cells without causing irritation. Suitable to use on sensitive skin.

The Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel is a gentle, gommage peel. ‘Gommage’ comes from the French word for ‘erasing’. A gommage peel works by applying a cream or paste to the skin, letting it sit for a minute or so, and then rubbing the product into the skin. When rubbed, the product will curl up into little balls that resemble something like pencil shavings, taking your dead skin along with it.

Most gommage peels contain enzymes which act as the exfoliating agents. The Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel contains Pineapple and Papaya enzymes and extracts to exfoliate dull skin and unclog pores gently.

The inclusion of Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract works to protect the skin with its antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. This helps to make the product suitable for even very sensitive or acne prone skin.

After using it, your skin will feel softer and smoother, and over time, if done consecutively, dark spots and acne scars will begin to fade as dead skin cells are removed and new skin cells are pushed to the surface.

To use the peel:

  1. After toner, apply adequate amount onto dry face or neck.
  2. Let sit for about 30 seconds to 1 minute to allow the enzymes to break down dead skin cells.
  3. Gently rub to exfoliate and then rinse with lukewarm water.
  4. Use 1-2 times a week depending on skin type

4. Ampoules

You might be wondering, “what is the difference between an ampoule and a serum?” or even “why do I need to use an ampoule in the first place?” Well, an ampoule is essentially a super extra potent serum that targets a specific skin concern. You might only use an ampoule on occasions when your skin feels particularly dry and use a serum twice daily.

OxygenCeuticals’ Fluid Line contains six powerful targeted ampoules that aid in every skin concern. We have one ampoule specifically for building skin elasticity.

Skin Barrier Fluid

Oil-textured, lightweight fluid that calms and nourishes the skin with deep, lasting hydration.

The Skin Barrier Fluid is the official firming ampoule in the OxygenCeuticals’ Fluid lineup. Formulated with skin protecting ingredients, this ampoule helps to build up a protective moisture barrier around the skin. This barrier not only keeps moisture from evaporating, but also keeps the skin safe from external pollutants like fine dust or dirt.

Ingredients like Adenosine and Hydrolized Collagen fill up fine lines and wrinkles, allowing them to soften and become nearly unnoticable to the eye. Over time, this fluid can help your skin bounce back to its original, youthful appearance!

If you feel like your skin barrier has been damaged or weakened, maybe with evidence such as more wrinkles, more redness, or even blemishes, this ampoule will help patch it back up! A healthy skin barrier is key to maintaining healthy skin!

To use the Skin Barrier Fluid:

  1. Apply 1~2 drops on clean skin.
  2. Massage gently into the skin until absorbed.

Acell-300 Fluid

Patented ingredient, Acell-300 (Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract & Prunella Vulgaris Leaf Extract) helps strengthen the skin and create a protective barrier to keep the skin moisturized.

OxygenCeuticals’ official hydrating fluid, the Acell-300 creates a protective, non-drying moisture layer to give the skin a natural glow. How do we know it works? The name Acell-300 isn’t just talk. This contains the patented ingredient “ACELL 300 COMPLEX.” This was created as a result of 300 tests and research projects to find an ingredient with long-lasting hydration.

The ACELL 300 COMPLEX is made up of several botanical ingredients specifically chosen for their hydrating power: Althaea Rosea Flower Extracts, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extracts, Monnieri Fruit Extracts, Prunella Vulgaris Leaf Extracts, and Capric Glycerides.

To use this fluid:

  1. Apply 1-2 drops on clean skin before applying serum/essence.
  2. Massage into the skin and let absorb.
    • We recommend mixing this fluid with our Moisture Aqua Serum for easier application and deeper hydration. It can also be used as a base for dewy makeup.

5. Serums

Our next step seems obvious! Serum! A skin serum is a light, easily absorbed liquid that you spread on your skin for extra nutrients, moisture, etc. A serum can even have multiple functions! OxygenCeuticals’ line of serums certainly does.

ReGenon Serum

A brightening antioxidant serum that builds firm and toned skin from the ground up. This powerful serum contains the highest concentration of Idebenone, a new, cutting-edge super antioxidant, at 20,000ppm.

One of the newest members of the OxygenCeuticals’ family is the ReGenon Serum. Officially marketed as an anti-aging serum, this serum is much more.

Containing 20,000ppm of Idebenone, this serum has serious antioxidant power! Considered to be 4x more powerful than Vitamin C, Idebenone evens out skin tone and improves hyperpigmentation.

Other ingredients like the Superberry Complex, made up of apples, grapes, pomegranates, palm beans, western plums, peaches, and watermelons work to protect the skin from external environmental hazards like fine dust and pollution.

The Oil Complex and Amino Acid 17 Complex supply nutrients to skin cells to maintain moisture and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This serum is not limited to use on mature skin. In fact, the earlier the better. Using antioxidant serums can prevent skin aging while improving the common issues of younger skin, such as acne and pigmentation.

To use the ReGenon Serum:

  1. Apply an appropriate amount to the skin.
  2. Gently tap into the skin until fully absorbed.
  3. Use with ReGenon Cream for enhanced anti-oxidative and hydrating effects.

Moisture Aqua Serum

An ultra hydrating serum, packed with Sodium Hyaluronate and Jojoba Oil, that retains moisture and keeps skin hydrated. Suitable for acne, dry, oily, and other skin types.

OxygenCeuticals’ Moisture Aqua Serum is a light, hydrating serum that creates an oil-water balance in the skin. This serum is not only packed with Hyaluronic Acid and Jojoba Oil, which make it so moisturizing, it also contains Arginine and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract. Arginine is a great antioxidant that controls the skin pH balance while Camellia Sinensis smooths the skin and repairs damage.

This serum works wonders when used together with the Acell-300 Fluid. We actually offer the two products in a quick and easy kit for those who want to try it out before buying the full size products. This is the Acell Moisture Kit! A must have serum set for anyone suffering with dry skin.

To use the serum:

  1. At the serum step, apply an adequate amount to the face.
  2. Pat gently onto the skin until it is absorbed.
    • For best results, mix with a fluid that matches your skin concern! (For dry skin, mix with the Acell-300 Fluid!)

Age Defying Essence Forte

Essence containing adenosine and panthenol. Improves skin elasticity and
delivers hydration to reveal clearer, brighter, healthier skin.

The essence of skincare is…well, essences. The Age Defying Essence Forte is a powerhouse moisturizing prep-step that packs two benefits into one bottle.

This rich texture essence gives skin a luminous glow, helps fades fine lines, minimizes pores, improves elasticity, smooths its texture, boosts its healthy tone, and hydrates for up to 24 hours. It contains adenosine and allantoin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Research suggests that adenosine can soothe and heal damaged skin by stimulating skin fibroblasts, a type of cell that secretes collagen proteins. Additionally, Panthenol and Hyaluronic Acid both work to not only moisturizes the skin, but retain hydration for up to twenty-four hours.

This essence is a gold mine of anti-aging benefits, but Adenosine is the star of the show.

To use the Age Defying Essence Forte:

  1. Apply an adequate amount to the skin.
  2. Pat gently into the skin until fully absorbed.
    • Use with a Fluid of choice for enhanced effects.
    • Use daily, morning and night, after cleansing and before serums and moisturizers.

B5 Gel

Contains Vitamin B5(Panthenol) and Sodium Hyaluronate that help hydrate skin
whereas Adenosine improves skin elasticity and prevents premature aging.

Another popular vitamin serum, the B5 Gel is a super absorbant, vitamin-rich, anti-aging serum packed with vitamin B5 and other moisturizing factors to keep the skin feeling soft and smooth!

Formulated with Panthenol, a form of vitamin B5, to soothe and smooth the skin. This serum also contains anti-aging agent, Adenosine. Adenosine improves skin elasticity, smooths out wrinkles, and keeps the skin looking youthful. Adenosine works by activating fibroblasts in the skin, which secrete collagen proteins and heal wounds.

Moisture is important in aging skin, too. This serum contains both Hyaluronic Acid and Honeysuckle Extracts to hydrate and maintain moisture content deep within the skin layers for longer.

To use the B5 Gel:

  1. Apply 1-2 drops of the serum to the skin.
  2. Pat gently until absorbed.
    • It’s recommended to use in conjunction with the Serum 12/17 and Phyto Gel for bonus anti-oxidative and brightening effects.
    • It can also be used as a base for Ultrasonic or Ion Therapy.

6. Facial Masks

What fun would skincare be if we couldn’t just plop a mask on our face, get something to drink, and chill on our couch while the mask does its magic?

Depending on the type of mask, it should come either before or after moisturizers. Sheet Masks should come before creams or moisturizers, while clay masks should come before any ampoule or serums.

7. Creams

So now we’ve finally gotten to the moisturizers. Creams are important in skincare because they’re meant to lock in all the good stuff we just put on, as well as provide their own benefits. If you have dry or sagging skin, you already know that a good cream is an essential.

Skin Barrier Ato Cream

A protective cream formulated with Fucoidan V. Creates a protective barrier and delivers hydration to sensitive and damaged skin.

Another bestseller, the Skin Barrier ATO Cream is a protective cream used to restore dull, damaged skin back to health.

8. Sun Care

Exposure to sunlight is the biggest culprit in aging skin. As we get older, UV light damages the skin. Specifically, the sun damages fibers called elastin. Damage to these fibers causes the skin to lose its elasticity, thus more wrinkles.

So, the best anti-aging product? Sunscreen.

Choosing the best sunscreen for your skin is essential to keeping it healthy and youthful! OxygenCeuticals has two great options for suncare. Let’s see what they are!

TP Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++

[OxygenCeuticals] Anti-Aging Routine

Skin Aging (and its causes)

Usually, as people start getting into their 30s and 40s, their skin starts losing its elasticity. Lines may appear on the forehead, or around the eyes and mouth, or anywhere else skin has been damaged over time.

The main cause of aging skin is sun damage. As the years go by and the sun continues to hit our skin, fibers called elastin get damaged. This damage causes the skin to sag and stretch.

While you can’t completely undo sun damage, you can do a few things to help your skin repair itself. Antioxidant care, collagen, and sunscreen can do wonders to restore vitality to aged skin. Let’s see what OxygenCeuticals has in store for an anti-aging skincare routine!

1. Cleansing

The first step to any skincare routine is cleansing. Age has nothing to do with it! Except what kind of cleansers you use, of course! Strong, harsh cleansers can dry out skin, leaving it feel tight and squeaky. This can actually lead to more visible wrinkles and lines on the face. Since mature skin is thinner, we need a sensitive, gentle, moisturizing cleanser to keep it healthy and clean.

Luckily, OxygenCeuticals has two perfect 1st and 2nd step cleansers that will do just the trick!

Gentle Facial Cleansing Lotion

Gentle, non-greasy, and non-irritating cleanser with milky texture. Effectively removes makeup and impurities without drying out the skin.

This is a wonderful 1st step cleanser for those who want to double cleanse without drying out their skin. It contains Safflower Seed Oil, Kyounin Yu, and Algin. Safflower Seed Oil contains linoleic acid which helps maintain your skin’s protective barrier and prevents flaking. It offers both occlusive and emollient properties that moisturize and nourish the skin. Algin, also known as alginic acid, is a naturally occurring polymer extracted from brown algae. This makes it an emulsifying agent that helps thicken the product’s texture while providing binding moisture to the skin that doesn’t evaporate away.

To use this cleanser:

  1. Take an appropriate amount and gently rub all over the face.
  2. Use a tissue, cotton pad, or sponge to remove.
  3. Follow up with second step of cleansing with the Purifying Foaming Wash. This cleanser can be used as a stand-alone cleanser if you don’t wear heavy makeup.

Purifying Foaming Wash

A gel type of sub-acid cleanser with pH of 5.0. Cleanses sensitive and troubled skin without causing irritation.

This natural, plant-based foaming wash helps to minimize pores while removing impurities, makeup and dirt. Dimethyl Sulfone and Botanical extracts create a rich foam to cleanse while simultaneously delivering essential nutrients to the skin. Its Botanical ingredients are made up of Rehmannia Glutinosa Root Extract, Saururus Chinensis Leaf/Root Extract and Apricot Kernel Extract. These ingredients provide anti-inflammation and antimicrobial effects without stripping the skin.

It’s even been skin irritant patch tested to work perfectly on sensitive skin types, making it a wonderful cleanser for acne as well as dry skin.

To use this cleanser:

  1. Take an adequate amount and lather with water.
  2. Apply foam on the skin and gently rub.
  3. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
    • Can be used as a stand-alone foaming cleanser if you don’t wear heavy makeup.

If you don’t like these cleansers! We have others you can try out! For a rich, fluffy foam cleanser, try the Pore Mask! If you prefer oil cleansers to remove makeup, try out the Double Makeup Remover! Both of these cleansers are great for anti-aging too!

2. Toners

You might remember a time when toners would be filled with alcohol, astringents, and other harsh tightening ingredients meant to “clarify” the skin to prevent excess oil production. Sadly, those toners would only cause more harm than good.

Luckily, we’re past the age of those toners. Let us show you exactly what OxygenCeuticals has in store!

Nutrient Toner

Essence type toner suitable for dry and aging skin. Nourishes and hydrates the skin, making it soft and smooth.

One of our bestselling toners, the Nutrient Toner contains Hyaluronic Acid, Allantoin, and Portulaca Oleracea Extract. Hyaluronic Acid, also known as Sodium Hyaluronate, is a humectant. A humectant is a substance that helps the skin hold in moisture. Therefore, this toner will keep water from evaporating from the skin and leave it full and bouncy. Allantoin is an anti-aging ingredient that aids in the process of skin cell turnover. This means it will keep the skin smooth once the dead skin layer is shed off. Dry, dead skin can appear flaky and result in the formation of fine lines.

When using this toner, your skin will feel like it’s drunk its fill of pure moisture and it will continue to feel that way for a long time, as it’s formulated to keep the moisture in.

To use this toner, after cleansing:

  1. Soak a cotton pad with the toner.
  2. Wipe the pad across the face to remove impurities and hydrate the skin.
  3. This toner can also be used to make a DIY mask pack by soaking cotton pads in the toner and leaving them on dry spots on the face for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the toner to properly soak into the skin.

If for some reason, this toner doesn’t suit your tastes, OxygenCeuticals does have a few other options for you to try! If you’re looking for some quick cooling and soothing care, try the Cryogenic Activator or the D:O2 Activator! If you want something light with anti-aging properties, try the Toning Gel!

3. Peeling

Every once in a while, you have to exfoliate your skin. Maybe once or twice a week, depending on your skin type and what products you use. Exfoliating is essential for those who want a brighter, healthier glow on their skin. And that’s because exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells by breaking the bonds that glue them together, allowing new skin cells to rise to the surface.

Exfoliating, or peeling, can also be a kind of ‘third-step’ of cleansing. Your exfoliating product can get rid of any of the deeply hidden dirt and debris in your pores that your first two cleansers missed.

Peeling can help get rid of the damaged skin cells that manifest as fine lines or wrinkles on your face. Peel away those cells and replace them with bright, soft, youthful skin!

Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel

Physical exfoliant with pineapple and papaya extracts. Exfoliates dull skin and unclogs pores to remove dead skin cells without causing irritation. Suitable to use on sensitive skin.

The Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel is a gentle, gommage peel. ‘Gommage’ comes from the French word for ‘erasing’. A gommage peel works by applying a cream or paste to the skin, letting it sit for a minute or so, and then rubbing the product into the skin. When rubbed, the product will curl up into little balls that resemble something like pencil shavings, taking your dead skin along with it.

Most gommage peels contain enzymes which act as the exfoliating agents. The Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel contains Pineapple and Papaya enzymes and extracts to exfoliate dull skin and unclog pores gently.

The inclusion of Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract works to protect the skin with its antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. This helps to make the product suitable for even very sensitive or acne prone skin.

After using it, your skin will feel softer and smoother, and over time, if done consecutively, dark spots and acne scars will begin to fade as dead skin cells are removed and new skin cells are pushed to the surface.

To use the peel:

  1. After toner, apply adequate amount onto dry face or neck.
  2. Let sit for about 30 seconds to 1 minute to allow the enzymes to break down dead skin cells.
  3. Gently rub to exfoliate and then rinse with lukewarm water.
  4. Use 1-2 times a week depending on skin type

Double Peel

Chemical exfoliant that removes dead skin cells effectively with 24.5% AHA and 0.5% BHA. Contains Panthenol which soothes, moisturizes, and reduces inflammation.

The Double Peel is a chemical exfoliant. Chemical exfoliants work differently from gommage peels or traditional physical peels like scrubs.

A chemical peel is a skin exfoliant with a pH of around 2.0. Chemical Peels typically contain acids called AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids). These are chemical exfoliants that remove dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin.

AHAs work by reducing the concentration of calcium ions in the skin which promotes the shedding of surface-level skin cells (if you’ve heard of Glycolic or Lactic Acid, you’ve heard of AHas).

BHAs do much of the same, but they provide antibacterial benefits. One BHA you are probably already familiar with is Salicylic Acid, commonly used to treat acne.

Chemical Peeling with such acids provide a variety of benefits for our skin. They can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, revive dull skin, remove dark spots, reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, and even improve acne.

This product has an optimum AHA:BHA ratio of 24.5% AHA to 0.5% BHA. It also contains panthenol to soothe, moisturize, and calm inflammation.

To use the Double Peel:

  1. After toner, apply an adequate amount on the skin (avoid the eye areas)
  2. Let sit for 1-2 minutes if you have normal skin, 2-3 minutes for oily skin, and 30 secs – 1 min for sensitive skin.
  3. Use once a week, or according to your skin type.

4. Ampoules

You might be wondering, “what is the difference between an ampoule and a serum?” or even “why do I need to use an ampoule in the first place?” Well, an ampoule is essentially a super extra potent serum that targets a specific skin concern. You might only use an ampoule on occasions when your skin feels particularly dry and use a serum twice daily.

OxygenCeuticals’ Fluid Line contains six powerful targeted ampoules that aid in every skin concern. We have one ampoule specifically for anti-aging.

Caviar Protein Fluid

An anti-aging fluid formulated with Caviar Extracts enriched with amino acids and
Omega-3 to feed the skin with rich nutrients. Niacinamide, Adenosine, and Peptide even
up the skin tone and improve skin elasticity.

This age-defying ampoule is one of six powerful fluids in OxygenCeuticals’ Fluid Line. One drop helps to lift, firm, and provide a long-lasting tensing effect to the skin. 

Caviar extract is an emolliant ingredient that boosts hydration and plumps up fine lines. It also has great anti-oxidative effects that reduce inflammation and fight off damage from free radicals and sun exposure. Since Caviar is unfertilized fish eggs, it contains a lot of omega-3, vitamins, and amino acids. All of these nutrients work together to smooth out the skin’s texture, lock in moisture, boost collagen production, and prevent the breakdown of elastin.

The Caviar Extract doesn’t work on its own, however. It’s backed up by Adenosine, an anti-aging active that enhances skin elasticity and revitalizes skin tone. This fluid also contains Niacinamide to brighten the skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation, while peptides strengthen the skin barrier and promote skin cell turnover to reveal bouncy, fresh skin.

To use the Caviar Protein Fluid:

  1. Apply 1-2 drops on clean skin before serum/essence.
  2. Pat gently into the skin until fully absorbed.

If you’re looking for an ampoule that provides anti-aging benefits and skin barrier protection, try the Skin Barrier Fluid instead!

5. Serums

Our next step seems obvious! Serum! A skin serum is a light, easily absorbed liquid that you spread on your skin for extra nutrients, moisture, etc. A serum can even have multiple functions! OxygenCeuticals’ line of serums certainly does.

Here’s some of OxygenCeuticals’ best anti-aging serums!

ReGenon Serum

A brightening antioxidant serum that builds firm and toned skin from the ground up. This powerful serum contains the highest concentration of Idebenone, a new, cutting-edge super antioxidant, at 20,000ppm.

One of the newest members of the OxygenCeuticals’ family is the ReGenon Serum. Officially marketed as an anti-aging serum, this serum is much more.

Containing 20,000ppm of Idebenone, this serum has serious antioxidative power! Considered to be 4x more powerful than Vitamin C, Idebenone evens out skin tone and improves hyperpigmentation.

Other ingredients like the Superberry Complex, made up of apples, grapes, pomegranates, palm beans, western plums, peaches, and watermelons work to protect the skin from external environmental hazards like fine dust and pollution.

The Oil Complex and Amino Acid 17 Complex supply nutrients to skin cells to maintain moisture and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This serum is not limited to use on mature skin. In fact, the earlier the better. Using antioxidant serums can prevent skin aging while improving the common issues of younger skin, such as acne and pigmentation.

To use the ReGenon Serum:

  1. Apply an appropriate amount to the skin.
  2. Gently tap into the skin until fully absorbed.
  3. Use with ReGenon Cream for enhanced anti-oxidative and hydrating effects.

B5 Gel

Contains Vitamin B5(Panthenol) and Sodium Hyaluronate that help hydrate skin
whereas Adenosine improves skin elasticity and prevents premature aging.

Another popular vitamin serum, the B5 Gel is a super absorbant, vitamin-rich, anti-aging serum pack with vitamin B5 and other moisturizing factors to keep the skin feeling soft and smooth!

Formulated with Panthenol, a form of vitamin B5, to soothe and smooth the skin. This serum also contains anti-aging agent, Adenosine. Adenosine improves skin elasticity, smooths out wrinkles, and keeps the skin looking youthful. Adenosine works by activating fibroblasts in the skin, which secrete collagen proteins and heal wounds.

Moisture is important in aging skin, too. This serum contains both Hyaluronic Acid and Honeysuckle Extracts to hydrate and maintain moisture content deep within the skin layers for longer.

To use the B5 Gel:

  1. Apply 1-2 drops of the serum to the skin.
  2. Pat gently until absorbed.
    • It’s recommended to use in conjunction with the Serum 12/17 and Phyto Gel for bonus anti-oxidative and brightening effects.
    • It can also be used as a base for Ultrasonic or Ion Therapy.

Age Defying Essence Forte

Essence containing adenosine and panthenol. Improves skin elasticity and
delivers hydration to reveal clearer, brighter, healthier skin.

The essence of skincare is…well, essences. The Age Defying Essence Forte is a powerhouse moisturizing prep-step that packs two benefits into one bottle.

This rich texture essence gives skin a luminous glow, helps fades fine lines, minimizes pores, improves elasticity, smooths its texture, boosts its healthy tone, and hydrates for up to 24 hours. It contains adenosine and allantoin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Research suggests that adenosine can soothe and heal damaged skin by stimulating skin fibroblasts, a type of cel that secretes collagen proteins. Additionally, Panthenol and Hyaluronic Acid both work to not only moisturizes the skin, but retain hydration for up to twenty-four hours.

This essence is a gold mine of anti-aging benefits, but Adenosine is the star of the show.

To use the Age Defying Essence Forte:

  1. Apply an adequate amount to the skin.
  2. Pat gently into the skin until fully absorbed.
    • Use with a Fluid of choice for enhanced effects.
    • Use daily, morning and night, after cleansing and before serums and moisturizers.

6. Facial Masks

What fun would skincare be if we couldn’t just plop a mask on our face, get something to drink, and chill on our couch while the mask does its magic?

Depending on the type of mask, it should come either before or after moisturizers. Sheet Masks should come before creams or moisturizers, while clay masks should come before any ampoule or serums.

Let’s see what kind of masks OxygenCeuticals offers for anti-aging effects!

Ceutisome AG Mask

The nutritious essence including Caviar Extract will permeate deeply into the skin
and make the tired skin more elastic and healthier

A premium mask with intensive nourishing and moisturizing effects, the Ceutisome AG Mask softens the skin, lifts skin fatigue, helps improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Bemliese absorbs twice the amount of mask essence to deliver rich anti-aging nutrients to the skin.

The mask is infused with caviar extracts from sturgeon that is rich in Amino Acid, Omega-3, Vitamin A etc. Caviar extract has been proven as one of the most hydrating and aging reversal agent available. This mask also contains powerful anti-aging active adenosine for enhanced anti-wrinkle effects. The AG Mask can also tone and brighten the skin with niacinamide. Panthenol hydrates and soothes.

To use the Ceutisome AG Mask:

  1. Prep skin with toner.

  4. Remove the mask and gently pat the remaining essence into the skin until absorbed.
    • You can achieve synergistic effects if you use this mask alongside the Caviar Line products.

6. Creams

So now we’ve finally gotten to the moisturizers. Creams are important in skincare because they’re meant to lock in all the good stuff we just put on, as well as provide their own benefits. If you have dry or aging skin, you already know that a good cream is an essential.

Age Defying Caviar Cream

The ReGenon Cream is a light-weight dual function cream that absorbs easily into the skin to provide both antioxidant and anti-aging benefits. If your skin is dry and suffering from fine lines and wrinkles, this cream’s main active, Idebenone, will help heal sun damage and reduce their appearance.

7. Sun Care

Exposure to sunlight is the biggest culprit in aging skin. As we get older, UV light damages the skin. Specifically, the sun damages fibers called elastin. Damage to these fibers causes the skin to lose its elasticity, thus more wrinkles.

So, the best anti-aging product? Sunscreen.

Choosing the best sunscreen for your skin is essential to keeping it healthy and youthful! OxygenCeuticals has two great options for suncare. Let’s see what they are!

TP Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++

[OxygenCeuticals] Routine for Acne

What is Acne? (and What Causes it?)

Maybe it’s a silly question, afterall, everyone and their mother has experienced acne at least once before. But do you know what causes it? Well, there are a few different answers.

Generally, acne is a skin condition that occurs when your pores become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. This buildup results in an inflamed, sometimes painful, red bump on the skin. Acne can have different forms, depending on its severity. There are blackheads, whiteheads, papules (small, tender red bumps), pustules (papules but with a whitehead), nodules (large, painful lumps beneath the skin’s surface), and cysts (painful, pus-filled lump underneath the surface).

A common myth about acne is that it’s caused by dirty skin. That’s not always true! Oily skin can be caused by so many different factors, often uncontrollable. Hormonal changes, such as puberty or pregnancy, can lead to acne. High humidity and pressure can also contribute.

Of course, being too rough on your skin might also be the cause! If you’re using harsh skincare ingredients like alcohols or astringents, you might actually be destroying your skin barrier that protects your skin from harmful external factors. Therefore, there’s nothing to keep acne at bay. You’ve got to be gentle with your skin to keep it healthy and safe.

If you have mild or moderately severe acne, you can probably use a few skincare products to heal or treat it. OxygenCeuticals has a lot of great products that can assist!

But, if you’re experiencing very severe, persistent acne, it’s advised that you seek out a dermatologist to find the underlying cause and receive medical treatment.

1. Cleansing

Any good skincare routine starts with cleansing. Keeping your skin clean and fresh is the most basic strategy to keeping acne away. It’s very important to use a cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin of all of its oils. Some of that oil is essential to maintaining skin moisture and health. A gentle, slightly acidic cleanser is the best thing for those who suffer from blemishes.

Purifying Foaming Wash

A gel type of sub-acid cleanser with pH of 5.0. Cleanses sensitive and troubled skin without causing irritation.

This natural, plant-based foaming wash helps to minimize pores while removing impurities, makeup and dirt. Dimethyl Sulfone and Botanical extracts create a rich foam to cleanse while simultaneously delivering essential nutrients to the skin. Its Botanical ingredients are made up of Rehmannia Glutinosa Root Extract, Saururus Chinensis Leaf/Root Extract and Apricot Kernel Extract. These ingredients provide anti-inflammation and antimicrobial effects without stripping the skin.

It’s even been skin irritant patch tested to work perfectly on sensitive skin types, making it a wonderful cleanser for acne as well as dry skin.

To use this cleanser:

  1. Take an adequate amount and lather with water.
  2. Gently apply on the skin and gently rub.
  3. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
    • Can be used as a stand-alone foaming cleanser if you don’t wear heavy makeup.

If you have more robust skin, you can also try OxygenCeuticals’ Pore Mask. This cleanser has a very thick, rich foam that clears pores and purifies the skin.

2. Toning

After cleansing, you need something to wipe off the last tiny bits of dirt and grime that your cleanser just didn’t catch. Not to mention, there are many toners that provide moisturizing benefits as well as toning.

OxygenCeuticals has a large variety of toners to choose from, but one toner is specially designed to help aid in acne care.

Skin Balancing Toner

Toner with pH 5.5. Regulates sebum and moisture balance after cleansing. Improves skin texture, moisturizes, and strengthens skin immunity with herbal ingredients

OxygenCeuticals’ Skin Balancing Toner will do exactly as it’s named to do. It will balance the pH of your skin. Most people’s skin has a pH range of 5.4 – 5.9, meaning it’s slightly acidic. This toner has a pH of 5.5. If you’re not using the Purifying Foaming Wash, you could be using a more alkaline cleanser that, while doing a good job of cleansing, may throw off the natural pH of your skin, and lead to a damaged skin barrier.

The Skin Balancing Toner can bring back the pH back down to a healthy level after cleansing, making sure that the pH is exactly where it’s meant to be.

Therefore, it can improve skin texture, restore moisture, and strengthen the skin’s immunity with its herbal ingredients. Plus, it’s gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin!

To use the Skin Balancing Toner:

  1. Soak a cotton pad with the toner.
  2. Wipe along the face to remove impurities while soothing the skin.
    • Apply in between aesthetic treatments to soothe and hydrate the skin.

If this toner isn’t for you, you can try out one of our other toners!

For soothing and moisturizing care, especially after dermatological procedures, try the D:O2 Activator or the Cryogenic Activator. For irritated, inflamed skin try the Toning Gel.

3. Peeling

Every once in a while, you have to exfoliate your skin. Maybe once or twice a week, depending on your skin type and what products you use. Exfoliating is essential for those who want a brighter, healthier glow on their skin. And that’s because exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells by breaking the bonds that glue them together, allowing new skin cells to rise to the surface.

Exfoliating, or peeling, can also be considered the ‘third-step’ of cleansing. Your exfoliating product can get rid of any of the deeply hidden dirt and debris in your pores that your first two cleansers missed.

OxygenCeuticals has two different type of exfoliating products, both great choices to achieve smoother skin.

Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel

Physical exfoliant with pineapple and papaya extracts. Exfoliates dull skin and unclogs pores to remove dead skin cells without causing irritation. Suitable to use on sensitive skin.

The Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel is a gentle, gommage peel. ‘Gommage’ comes from the French word for ‘erasing’. A gommage peel works by applying a cream or paste to the skin, letting it sit for a minute or so, and then rubbing the product into the skin. When rubbed, the product will curl up into little balls that resemble something like pencil shavings, taking your dead skin along with it.

Most gommage peels contain enzymes which act as the exfoliating agents. The Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel contains Pineapple and Papaya enzymes and extracts to exfoliate dull skin and unclog pores gently.

The inclusion of Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract works to protect the skin with its antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. This helps to make the product suitable for even very sensitive or acne prone skin.

After using it, your skin will feel softer and smoother, and over time, if done consecutively, dark spots and acne scars will begin to fade as dead skin cells are removed and new skin cells are pushed to the surface.

To use the peel:

  1. After toner, apply adequate amount onto dry face or neck.
  2. Let sit for about 30 seconds to 1 minute to allow the enzymes to break down dead skin cells.
  3. Gently rub to exfoliate and then rinse with lukewarm water.
  4. Use 1-2 times a week depending on skin type

Double Peel

Chemical exfoliant that removes dead skin cells effectively with 24.5% AHA and 0.5% BHA. Contains Panthenol which soothes, moisturizes, and reduces inflammation.

The Double Peel is a chemical exfoliant. Chemical exfoliants work differently from gommage peels or traditional physical peels like scrubs.

A chemical peel is a skin exfoliant which a pH of around 2.0. Chemical Peels typically contain acids called AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids). These are chemical exfoliants that remove dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin.

AHAs work by reducing the concentration of calcium ions in the skin which promotes the shedding of surface-level skin cells (If you’ve heard of Glycolic or Lactic Acid, you’ve heard of AHas)

BHAs do much of the same, but they provide antibacterial benefits. One BHA you’re probably already familiar with is Salicylic Acid, commonly used to treat acne.

Chemical Peeling with such acids provide a variety of benefits for our skin. They can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, revive dull skin, remove dark spots, reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, and even improve acne.

This product has an optimum AHA:BHA ratio of 24.5% AHA to 0.5% BHA. It also contains panthenol to soothe, moisturize, and calm inflammation.

To use the Double Peel:

  1. After toner, apply an adequate amount on the skin (avoid the eye areas)
  2. Let sit for 1-2 minutes if you have normal skin, 2-3 minutes for oily skin, and 30 secs – 1 min for senstive skin.
  3. Use once a week, or according to your skin type.

4. Ampoule

You might be wondering, “what is the difference between an ampoule and a serum?” or even “why do I need to use an ampoule in the first place?” Well, an ampoule is essentially a super extra potent serum that targets a specific skin concern. You might only use an ampoule on occasions when your skin feels particularly dry and use a serum twice daily.

OxygenCeuticals’ Fluid Line contains six powerful targeted ampoules that aid in every skin concern. We have one ampoule specifically for acne and blemishes!

Herbal Fluid

A trouble care targeted fluid. Enriched with anti-acne complex to balance sebum secretion and minimize pores to reveal a healthy, dewy look.

This is OxygenCeuticals’ main acne-targeted ampoule. It’s a very gentle solution formulated with Salicylic Acid for mild exfoliation of dead skin cells. It also contains Sodium PCA for maintaining moisture in the skin.

However, its patented ‘Anti-Acne Complex’ made up of Terminalia Chebula Fruit Extract, Caesalpinia Sappan Bark Extract, and Magnolia Obovata Bark Extract relieves skin troubles like acne. These herbal ingredients work to soothe and relieve inflammation on the skin while purifying and controlling sebum production.

To use the Herbal Fluid:

  1. Apply 1-2 drops on clean skin before applying serum/essence.
  2. Massage into the skin and let absorb.
    • Use with Purifying Kit to amplify effect.
    • Use as spot treatment after acne extraction.

If you have very sensitive skin, or want to calm down skin redness and inflammation, try the Couperose Fluid or the Ceutisome Stem Formula (as a spot treatment).

5. Serum

Our next step seems obvious! Serum! A skin serum is a light, easily absorbed liquid that you spread on your skin for extra nutrients, moisture, etc. A serum can even have multiple functions! OxygenCeuticals’ line of serums certainly does.

We’ll share a serum that will help out with acne!

Serum 12/17

The combination of pure Vitamin C Powder and Vitamin E Serum . Gets rid of excess melanin and strengthens skin barrier, leaving the skin looking healthy and glossy.

If you’re a skincare buff, you probably already know that Vitamin C is a godsend for skin health. While it can be harsh to very sensitive skin types, it’s known to treat hyperpigmentation, acne, dull skin, dry skin, and damaged skin. Vitamin C Serums, much like how Vitamin C tablets protect our immune systems, provide a layer of protection to the skin to prevent damage from free radicals, oxidative stress, and UVA and UVB rays. Vitamin C can lighten pigmentation caused by blemishes and even help to fade acne scars.

OxygenCeuticals’ Serum 12 and Serum 17 are two sizes of the same product. Serum 12 comes with pure vitamin C powder and 30ml of Vitamin E serum. Mixing the two will result in a solution with 12% Vitamin C, hence the name ‘Serum 12’. Serum 17 is much the same but with 17% of Vitamin C and 60ml of solution.

The serums not only contain Vitamin C and E, but also Sodium PCA, a moisturizing factor that hydrates and smooths uneven texture. They also each contain anti-aging ingredient allantoin to sooth and keep skin soft.

To use Serum 12/17:

  1. Mix the Serum 12/17 with the Vitamin C powder.
  2. Shake thoroughly.
  3. Apply 1-2 drops on the skin and pat until fully absorbed.
  4. Vitamin C can irritate very sensitive skin, so it’s best to apply our B5 Gel or Phyto Gel before applying Serum 12/17.

If you think Vitamin C might be too harsh on your skin, try some of our other serums!

For anti-aging care, try the B5 Gel or the Age Defying Essence Forte. For brightening care, try the Phyto Gel. If you want an extra boost of moisture, try our Moisture Aqua Serum. All of these serums can aid in your acne skincare routine along with their other functions!

6. Facial Mask

What fun would skincare be if we couldn’t just plop a mask on our face, get something to drink, and chill on our couch while the mask does its magic?

Depending on the type of mask, it should come either before or after moisturizers. Sheet Masks should come before creams or moisturizers, while clay masks should come before any ampoule or serums.

Let’s see what kind of masks OxygenCeuticals has for those struggling with acne.

Ceutisome CC Mask

It hydrates the skin and controls sebum secretion, preventing greasy skin. Furthermore,
it cools down skin temperature in order to soothe flushed skin.

Sheet masks are a staple in Korean skincare, but ours is special. Our Ceutisome CC Mask is made with ultra-soft Bemliese fabric. Made from the long fibers, called linter, around cotton seeds, this fabric absorbs more of the ampoule in the mask and sits on the sit so smoothly that you don’t feel any of the itching or discomfort you might feel with a generic sheet mask.

Moreover, the CC Mask cools and soothes the skin while even controlling sebum production. Xylitol physically cools the skin’s temperature. Overheated skin is often inflamed and irritated. Witch Hazel Extract and 7-White Complex keeps the skin balanced while protecting it from harmful environmental substances.

If you have painful or inflamed acne, use this mask to cool and soothe. You’ll feel instantly refreshed.

To use the Ceutisome CC Mask:

  1. Remove the mask from its package.
  2. Apply the mask on the face.
  3. Leave the mask for 10-20 minutes.
  4. After removing the mask, gently tap the skin to help the remaining serum absorb fully into the skin.

Clarifying Mask

A skin purifying mask that removes excess sebum and dead skin cells while moisturizing skin.

No skincare routine would be complete without a kaolin clay mask, right? OxygenCeutical’s Clarifying Mask is a skin-purifying wash-off mask that delivers unparelled control of excessive sebum while also brightening and soothing the skin.

Containing Tocopheryl Acetate, a form of Vitamin E, this mask can sooth inflamed skin and acne, but also provide anti-oxidative effects that leave the skin looking immediately brighter after just one use.

Kaolin Clay works to control sebum protection and prevent acne formation, while Ceramide provides moisture to the skin. The mask leaves your skin feeling cool and clean after use, and you can literally see improvements in redness immediately.

To use the Clarifying Mask:

  1. Apply evenly to the skin with a brush or spatula.
  2. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Wash off the mask with lukewarm water
    • For extra soothing effects and longer wearability, mix the Clarifying Mask with Toning Gel in a 1:1 ratio before appliability.

7. Cream

So now we’ve finally gotten to the moisturizers. Creams are important in skincare because they’re meant to lock in all the good stuff we just put on, as well as provide their own benefits. You might think that having oily skin means you shouldn’t moisturize or don’t need to. But, actually, if your skin becomes dehydrated, it produces extra sebum to make up for the lack of moisture, making your skin more prone to acne or blemishes.

Here are some creams we recommend for blemished skin!

Couperose Cream

A soothing cream enriched with 7 types of botanical extracts.
Calms redness prone skin and fortifies skin barrier to reveal healthy complexion.

You might be afraid to put on moisturizer if you’ve got oily skin. Some moisturizers make the skin feel even heavier once applied and can make us feel like it’s clogging our pores.

But oily skin needs moisture to balance it out. If your skin is well-watered, then it won’t feel the need to produce as much oil. The Couperose Cream is a light-weight, all-over moisturizer formulated with 7 types of botanical extracts.

And there’s no need to worry if your skin will react badly. This product has been hypoallergenic tested and proven not to cause any adverse reactions on the skin!

Tomato Fruit/Leaf/Stem extract works to moisturize and regenerate the skin while turnip extract calms and soothes redness. Your skin will be thanking you once you apply this cream. Over time, you’ll see the redness fade away!

If you think the Couperose Cream isn’t for you, then we have other options available! If you want repairative, post-procedure care then try our PP Cream! For anti-aging and brightening care, try the ReGenon Cream. If you want to enhance your skin barrier and have sensitive skin, try the Skin Barrier Ato Cream. And finally, if you want a little bit of after-sun care or soothing care, try our Soothing Aloe Vera Gel!

8. Sun Care

This is the moment of truth. Sun Care is Dark Spot Care. Bottom Line. The number one cause of hyperpigmentation and dark spots is UVA and UVB damage from sun exposure. This means that the sun can make your acne look and feel worse!

So, you’ve got to protect your skin. Remember, the Sun. Is. Not. Your. Friend.

Here’s what OxygenCeuticals has in store for sun protection!

TP Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++

A featherlight daily sunscreen with SPF 50+++. Shields skin from harmful UVA and UVB to prevent premature aging while delivering moisturizing factors to the skin.

It’s a unique combination of mineral and chemical sun filters to ensure your skin is protected from all angles. This sunscreen absorbs flawlessly into the skin without any white cast or greasiness. It also smells really good (but maybe that’s only important to me).

Let’s not forget its bonus benefits! Vitamin E in the formula protects the skin’s moisture barrier and keeps nasty environmental hazards from sticking to the skin. Hyaluronic Acid keeps the skin hydrated and Allantoin soothes and calms skin. Sounds like the perfect formula for a summer sunscreen.

To use the TP Sun Cream:

  1. Apply an adequate amount to the skin. (Try two fingerlengths of cream, or a teaspoon amount)

Completely invisible after application, it’ll provide moisture to your skin as well keep it safe.

Another combination sunscreen with both mineral and chemical filters, it also contains Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, and Aloe Vera Leaf Juice Powder for soothing benefits.

To use Leport’s Sunblock:

  1. Apply an adequate amount to the skin (for the face: about two fingerlengths).

9. Skincare Kits

We love a customized skincare set. Our Ceutisome Trial Kits can be mixed and matched to create the perfect ampoule solution for your specific skin type and skin concern.

The Ceutisome O Trial Kit contains the Ceutisome Oilycom Ampoule, the O-Booster, and the Ceutisome Stem Formula.

The combination of the Oilycom Ampoule and O-Booster helps to relieve acne and achieve healthy skin by soothing and boosting skin renewal activity.

Adding the Stem Formula into the mix ensures maximum absorbtion. The Stem Formula, an O2 carrier, purifies the skin by removing carbon dioxide and supplying oxygen. It also accelerates healing and inhibits signs of aging by activing the metabolism of skin cells.

You can also buy another Trial Kit and mix with the O Trial Kit to get customized results. If you have dry and blemished skin, try mixing with the H Trial Kit.

Spicule Regentox

A skin restructuring ampoule with microneedle-like Spicule extracted from
marine sponges. Stimulates skin cells turnover without leaving redness or irritation.

One of our newly upgraded products, the Spicule Regentox is skin restructuring ampoule with microneedle-like spicules extracted from marine sponges. These spicules are so small that they are invisible to the naked eye, but they implant themselves into the skin and form microscopic channels. These channels allow for better absorption of product into the skin and boost collagen production.

Since these micro-channels act as tiny skin tears, your skin will amp up its regenerative functions to heal them, meaning more collagen and higher cell turnover for newer, fresher skin.

The Spicule Regentox now contains 6% spicule content for even more regenerative power.

To use the Spicule Regetox:

  1. Apply on areas with fine lines or enlarged pores for better results.

If you don’t fancy any of the above options, we have a few more that might work for you! If you have sensitive, redness-prone skin try the CC Starter Kit. If you have to promote skin recovery and turnover, try the SOS PP Kit!

Conclusion

Having acne isn’t the end of the world. Afterall, it’s something that happens to each and every one of us. Whether it’s caused by clogged pores or hormonal changes, it’s nothing to be ashamed of.

We can treat our acne with as many skin products as we want and see results, but the best thing you can do is to treat your skin with a gentle hand. Love the skin you have and you’ll be amazed with the new glow that’ll come to your face.
