[OxygenCeuticals] Double and Triple Cleansing

What is Double Cleansing?

You’ve probably heard of double cleansing, the world-wide skincare phenomenon that was born in South Korea. The concept is simple: use an oil-based cleanser as your first step, and then follow it up with a water-based foaming cleanser.

But why? Well, simple soap and water can’t remove oil or oil-based impurities from your skin. Water and oil don’t mix. So, you need an oil-based cleanser to remove that oil-based debris from your skin: like makeup, sunscreen, sebum, and other pollution.

Once you get rid of that entire gunk, your second-step water-based cleanser can reach deeper into the skin and remove dirt, sweat, and grime. Therefore, you get a much more thorough, penetrative cleanse.

Who Should Do It?

Anyone can double cleanse, but some skin types can benefit from it more than others. People with oily skin can find that double cleansing offers a thorough cleansing without over drying and leading to excess oil production.

People with acne-prone skin can find that double cleansing is effective for removing breakout-causing bacteria.

And of course, people who wear makeup will definitely enjoy the benefits of double cleansing as it can ensure the makeup is completely washed off.

People with dryer skin types can try it too! Oil cleansers can often have moisturizing benefits as well as cleansing.

How OxygenCeuticals does Double-Cleansing

Just like any other respectable skincare brand, we offer a quality oil-based cleanser to efficiently melt off makeup and oil buildup.

OxygenCeuticals’ Double Makeup Remover is cleansing oil that melts away makeup while keeping the skin soft and hydrated. Formulated with Soybean Oil, a natural vegetable oil that contains linoleic acid to help strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier.

Since most makeup and sebum are oil-based, you need an oil to effectively remove them from the skin. A regular foaming cleanser can’t reach that deeply into the pores to clean them out.

The Double Makeup Remover also contains Vitamin E for nourishment and moisture, as well as Korea Dendropanax extracts for firming up and evening out the skin tone.

This oil cleanser can be used as, of course, an oil cleanser by taking an appropriate amount and mixing it together with water to create an emulsion. Then you can gently massage the product into your skin and feel the makeup and dirt melt all away before rinsing and moving onto your foam cleanser.

Or, you can use it as its name suggests, as a makeup remover! Soak some cotton pads with the product and gently lay them on your eyes and lips for about ten to fifteen seconds before wiping your makeup right off.

Then we get to move on to our second step: The Pore Mask! This foam cleanser is one of our most popular and best-selling products with both retail and professional customers.

Infused with pure Oxygen, the Pore Mask is a fluffy, bubble foam cleanser. Containing Stearic Acid (a natural fatty acid), the cleanser effectively absorbs and removes impurities from pores. Lavender Oil in the formula controls sebum production, which leads to less breakouts and a smoother complexion while Pursley Extracts keep the skin moisturized and soothed from inflammation.

To use it, you can take a reasonable amount and lather with water to create foam. Then you gently massage the foam onto your skin. Then rinse with lukewarm water.

Or! If you want an even richer, thicker foam. You can mix one pump of the Pore Mask with 10-15ml of the Cryogenic Activator, a solution of desalinated deep sea water and dissolved oxygen.

This mixture will create very thick, intense whip cream-like foam that you can apply on your face like a mask. Leave it on for a few minutes to gently remove impurities before gently removing with a moist sponge.

If you have acne prone or sensitive skin!

You might be worried that this might be too intense for your skin. Have no fear! OxygenCeuticals offers another line of products just for you!

People with reactive skin might not like the idea of using a cleanser based on Soybean Oil, and that’s understandable. We have an alternative. The Gentle Facial Cleansing Lotion is a gentle, non-greasy, and non-irritating cleanser with a smooth, milky texture.

It effectively removes makeup and impurities without drying out the skin. It’s packed with ingredients that maintain the skin’s moisture barrier so that irritated skin doesn’t get, well, more irritated. The inclusion of Safflower Seed Oil helps maintain moisture in the skin while Kyounin Yu nourishes and Algin moisturizes.

To use it, you can take an adequate amount and gently rub all over the face. Afterwards, use a cotton pad or sponge to remove.

After using the Gentle Facial Cleansing Lotion (really rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it), you can use the Purifying Foaming Wash as your second step cleanser.

This gel-type, sub-acid cleanser has a pH of 5.0, which will be sure not to disturb your skin’s natural pH (disrupting your skin’s pH can lead to cyst-like acne and inflammation). It cleanses sensitive and trouble skin without causing irritation.

Clinically tested to work on sensitive skin, this cleanser is formulated with Dimethyl Sulfone and Saururus Chinensis Leaf Extract which both fight inflammation and microbes. Ingredients like Apricot Kernal Extract and Rehmannia Glutinosa Root Extract work together to fortify your natural skin barrier and protect the skin.

To use it, take an adequate amount and lather with water. After gently applying and rubbing onto the skin, rinse off with lukewarm water.

Triple Cleansing?

What if sometimes double cleansing just isn’t enough? Every once in a while, you’ll need to add in an extra step to really get in and remove all the buildup of impurities and dead skin cells hidden deep inside.

This is when you need to “peel” your skin. Of course, you can go and get your skin literally peeled at a professional spa. However, you can also get results by applying a chemical peel at home once every week to achieve similar results.

What is a Chemical Peel?

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.

OxygenCeuticals offers a wonderful chemical peel called the Double Peel. This product is a chemical exfoliator that removes dead skin cells effectively with 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 it, apply a thin layer onto the skin after toning, avoiding areas near the eyes. If you have normal skin, leave on for 1-2 minutes before rinsing off. If you have oily or troubled skin, leave on for 2-3 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water.

If you have sensitive skin, it might be best to dilute this product, as it can be quite intense. You can get rid of blackheads by applying a thin layer on oily parts of the face (think T-Zone and U-Zone) and creating a mummy mask of cotton pads soaked with Cryogenic Activator. The Cryogenic will dilute the solution slightly to reduce any risk of irritation. You can leave this mask on for up ten minutes before wiping it off.

Let’s say your skin is suuuper sensitive and the Double Peel or any other chemical peel just isn’t for you. Not to worry, we still have another way to peel and exfoliate our skin.

The Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel is a gommage type of peel formulated with pineapple and papaya extracts to remove dead skin cells without causing irritation. The Pineapple extract will work to exfoliate while the papaya tightens up your pores.

A gommage peel works a little differently from a chemical peel. First, it’s a mixture of a chemical and physical exfoliator. When you apply the gel/lotion type product on your skin, you can let it sit for a minute to let the enzymes do its work. Then, you will gently rub the product around your face. The product will pill slightly to provide a gentle exfoliation. You will notice dead skin cells peeling off of your face while you’re rubbing.

After your skin feels soft and smooth, you can rinse the product off with lukewarm water. We recommend you to use the Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel 1-2 times a week depending on your skin type and the Double Peel once a week, again depending on your skin type.

And there you have it! Your skin will feel fully cleansed and smooth after our triple cleansing method! Remember, you double cleanse every day, but triple cleanse only once or twice a week. Too much exfoliation isn’t good for your skin’s protective barrier and can lead to inflamed skin.

Try out these wonderful products and let us know what you think! Let us know which of our cleansers and peels your favorites to use are!

Until next time~

Stay Home, Stay Safe, and Stay Beautiful

It has already been more than a year since the horrible disease has started. People said it is dangerous beyond the blankets. And yes, even outside of a blanket is not so dangerous but outside of the house can be dangerous. That’s why a lot of health experts recommend people stay home, stay safe.

You might feel the skin condition is getting worse although you’ve not done anything special. Then, it is time to do spa-skincare. Of course, the sheet mask is the most effortless way for special skincare. But as you are investing your time at home, why don’t you do MORE special like Oxygen Modeling Mask?

Unlike usual sheet masks, modeling masks don’t dry out since they get solidified after few minutes. It means, the modeling pack traps moisture under the mask and block the moisture from evaporating. Thus, not only the skin can be moisturized for a much longer time. Also, while the pack turns from liquid to gel-like solid, it fully conforms to the contours of your face. Thus, it delivers nutrients effectively to the skin and taking up all the skin waste when you remove it.

There are a lot of modeling packs in the market. However, Not all modeling packs are the same. You should check the base ingredients of the pack. Usually, most modeling packs are made up of alginate which is extracted from sea algae. It hydrates skin and cools down at the same time. Check if the modeling mask contains diatomite. Diatomite is an excellent absorbent. So it removes pollutants and skin wastes very well.

You must check the functional ingredients as your skin type as well. There are 3 types of Oxygen Modeling Mask in OxygenCeuticals’ product line. These mask packs contain 17-18% of alginate so they can deliver an amount of moisture into your skin. As for its intensive moisturizing effect, you can see OxygenCeuticals’ modeling masks solidify a bit slower than others.

Oxygen RT Mask is featured its extraordinary moisturizing and soothing effects. It contains corn starch which is well known for its skin-soothing function. Corn starch purifies skin by picking up skin wastes and prevents aging of the skin. Also, it is gluten-free so people who are sensitive to gluten can use this modeling pack.

Mostly, OxygenCeuticals recommends this Oxygen RT Mask to use after the skin procedure to soothe skin but it is also good for dry and sensitive skin. If you need much moisture on your face, layer the HA Gel under the modeling mask.

If you are concerned about redness and heat on your face, you may love Oxygen CT Mask. This modeling mask contains peppermint extracts, which are good for cooling down skin temperature. Although most modeling packs give a cooling effect, the Oxygen CT Mask’s cooling effect is extraordinary.

Also, the menthol in peppermint extracts relieves irritated skin and helps skin fight bacteria, so it is good for acne-prone skin. There is Clarifying Mask in OxygenCeuticals’ product line which is good for purifying the skin. Why don’t you apply the Clarifying Mask under the Oxygen CT Mask?

Can you guess what’s in Oxygen VC Mask? It contains vitamins so it helps improve complexion and brighten skin. In detail, Panthenol, which is also known as provitamin B5, is a nice moisturizing substance binding to water molecules in the skin.

Vitamin C is also included in this modeling pack. As you know, vitamin C is one of the powerful antioxidants. It revives skin cells by removing free radicals from cells, thus it helps delay aging and prevents pigmentation. Also, vitamin C is an essential substance for cell metabolism so that it promotes collagen synthesis.

Here’s how to use OxygenCeuticals Modeling masks. Since they contain a lot of alginate in themselves, you don’t need to add much water like other rubber packs. Mix pack about 30g of powder and 70ml of water(distilled water or bottled water is recommended), and stir the mixture until it doesn’t drop down.

Then put the mask on the face avoiding eyes, nostrils, and mouth, and leave it for 15~20min to let the modeling pack be solidified. Remove the clotted pack from the jaw. OxygenCeuticals strongly recommends layering some skincare products, like HA Gel, Clarifying Mask, or Fluids, under the modeling mask for better results.

Soothe and Repair your skin with PP Line

Dry and cracking skin. Caused by cold wind and wearing mask continuously make skin stressful. Not only Redness but also itching and stinging sensation bothers us. So, this hypersensitive and damaged skin definitely needs soothing and regenerative treatment.

In fact, there are so many skincare products that feature their soothing effect. Then how about the regenerative effect? you can find the answer in OxygenCeuticals’ product line.

There are products named ‘PP’ which is the abbreviation of ‘Post-procedure’. These products are so mild and gentle but the result is powerful. Well, let’s look into the details of them.

What do you recall when you heard the word ‘Korean skincare’? Most of you probably recollect sheet masks. Of course, OxygenCeuticals, as a Korean skincare brand, also has several sheet masks. Today’s protagonist is Ceutisome PP Mask.

This sheet mask has been released quite recently, but it became one of the most popular items of OxygenCeuticals very soon. It is because of its instant soothing effect. Many people posted reviews saying this mask sheet relieved redness and irritation on their skin very quickly even after dermatological treatments like laser and peeling.

It contains DNA and EGFs(Epidermal Growth Factor) so that it promotes to recovery of damaged skin. Ceramide NP works on strengthening skin’s self protection layer so it can prevent further severe damage as well.

The fabric of Ceutisome PP Mask is made up of Tencel Cupra, a nature-derived long fiber. As containing seaweed extracts, its liquid absorption and retention abilities are extraordinary. Due to this special characters it minimizes irritation on skin.

Since it is as mild as being able to use on the skin right after cosmetic procedure, it is suitable for hypersensitive skin, too.

We can not finish our skincare routine on sheet mask step. We should use moisturizer after using sheet mask. Here is the cream that helps skin’s self-recovery, PP Cream.

PP Cream is developed to be applicable to the skin right after derma treatment. Cosmetic procedures are usually strong to achieve significant result faster. However, if you don’t do the aftercare on your skin, it may result in worse.

Palmitoyl tripeptide-5 & Adenosine

PP Cream contains Palmitoyl tripeptide-5 and Adenosine that activate collagen synthetic process. As collagen supports the structure of cells, skin becomes firmer and more elastic.

Also, Niacinamide is another key ingredient of PP Cream. Niacinamide is a sort of vitamin and it alleviates discoloration and pigmentation which stem from external stimuli and dry friction. It inhibits the production of melanin, thus it prevents further pigmentation at the same time.

When you apply PP Cream to your face, you can realize that the cream creates a thine layer on your face. This can protect skin from the external irritants.

In actual, a famous Korean dermatologist has recommended this cream to her patients. Unlike the ointments, this PP Cream doesn’t contains any steroids so it is safe to use it everyday.

Just remember 3 words when you are suffering from hypersensitive skin. “OxygenCeuticals PP Line”. Kill 2 birds, soothing and regeneration, with only one stone.

Help my Skin, Vitamin Serum Trio!

Even though it is the end of January, the weather is still cold. The cold weather decreases our body’s activeness. Thus, our immune system gets to lose its power. Having a cold or overreacting to some specific allergens can be symptoms of weaken immunity.

Like our body shows several symptoms, our skin does the same thing. When skin’s self-protection ability decreases, you can see the skin outbreak frequently.

So keeping immunity strong is the most important thing to stay safe. Then, what should we do for it? Of course, the proper amount of workout and a healthy diet are helpful for immunity. Or you can take some supplements like vitamins. VITAMIN. Yes, it is the easiest and simplest way to take back our immunity.

OxygenCeuticals, a medical skincare brand, have 3 kinds of different vitamin serums. Since they contain different vitamins, they’re aiming for different results.

Let’s go over Serum 12 and Serum 17. Both are basically the same serums containing ascorbic acid, vitamin C. The differences are only sizes and the concentration of vitamin C. The vitamin C concentration of Serum 12 is 12% in 30ml, while the Serum 17’s is 17% in 50ml.

Unlike common vitamin C Serums, there are 2 components in OxygenCeuticals Serum 12/17. You can find a brown bottle that contains vitamin E serum and a plastic bottle that contains pure vitamin C powder.

As you know, vitamin C is one of the powerful antioxidants. It removes free radicals like peroxides from your body and revitalizes your skin. On the other hand, vitamin E, which is also known as tocopheryl acetate, creates a skin shield and smoothens the rough skin.

By the way, why OxygenCeuticals delivers the serum and vitamin C powder separately? It is related to the stability of pure vitamin C. Due to its strong antioxidative effect, vitamin C solution can be oxidized very quickly. To stabilize the vitamin C and to provide the best result, cut the tube cap of the vitamin C bottle, and mix the powder to vitamin E serum before using it.

Also, it is recommended to use vitamin C serum during the night time skin care routine because the sunshine weakens vitamin C’s effect. If you have to use it in daytime, you should apply sunscreen after the use of vitamin C serum.

OxygenCeuticals Phyto Gel is a triple functional serum that supplies nutrition, moisturizes, and brightens skin at the same time. It is applicable to all skin types, and it is particularly recommended for dull and blemished skin.

The key ingredient of Phyto Gel is Vitamin B3, also called niacinamide. It treats hyperpigmentation. Not only lightens dark spots, but it also prevents pigmentation by interrupting melanin synthesis.

Other featured ingredients are sodium hyaluronate (a.k.a. hyaluronic acid) and Centella Asiatica leaf extracts which are excellent moisturizing substances. Also, Centella Asiatica is famous for its skin soothing effect. It helps skin to relieve irritation and to promote skin recovery.

It has a quite light and thin texture, so it is okay to layer other items like creams and makeups on it. If you are a bit sensitive to vitamin C and that is what makes you hesitate to use Serum 12/17, OxygenCeuticals suggests layering Phyto Gel before using Serum 12/17.

The last one is OxygenCeuticals B5 Gel. It has an anti-wrinkle effect that stems from vitamin B5 and adenosine. It is usually recommended for people who have saggy and tired skin.

Vitamin B5, or panthenol, replenishes moisture so it makes skin plump up and the adenosine leads the skin to be very elastic and healthy by increasing collagen production. As you know, collagen supports the structure of cells.

Before & After using OxygenCeuticals B5 Gel

You can see the significant difference between before & after using this B5 Gel. It allows skin to shine with a natural glow. You can achieve the better anti-aging & anti-wrinkling effect when you use it with Serum 12/17.

It is really tiring to live a life during this pandemic crisis. Certainly, we have to keep ourselves healthy. Don’t forget to keep your skin healthy, too! Let’s take advantage of OxygenCeuticals vitamin serum trio to get health, youth, and radiance.
