Maskne, OUT!

Have you heard about the word, ‘Maskne’? It’s appeared quite recently and actually, it is a combination of two words, mask + acne. These two words seem not related that much. However, in hence of the long-term fighting with the pandemic, people have to wear masks all day long and the environment of the skin under the mask is kept humid and warm which can provoke skin breakout by destroying skin’s oil-water(O/W) balance.

Usually, the skin with an unbalanced O/W ratio struggles with excessive sebum secretion. In this case, most people who suffer from excessive sebum might think they just have super oily skin. However, you need to check the reason causes oily skin. If your skin feels tight and dry when you use skincare products for oily skin, you might have dehydrated-oily skin.

Then what should we do for this ‘dehydrated-oily’ skin? The very first task for this skin type is to rebalance the O/W ratio. We should remove excessive sebum while we supply sufficient moisture to the skin. Let’s find out the perfect skincare routine for these people.

All skincare starts from cleansing. Here is OxygenCeuticals Purifying Foaming Wash, which is a subacidic foam cleanser. Common facial cleansers are usually alkaline to get rid of oil and fats from your skin effectively. However, this alkaline property can irritate skin by stripping the moisture layer of the skin as well.

When you use Purifying Foaming Wash, you probably realize that it doesn’t dry out your skin after cleansing. Instead of dehydrating skin, it supplies moisture to restore the O/W balance.

In fact, the ideal pH level of the skin is pH 3 ~ 5, the slightly acidic status. When the skin pH level got into the alkaline range, the self-protection layer of the skin is disturbed. So it is important for skin to stay in the subacidic range to help the protective layer work properly.

Some people might not prefer to use subacid cleansers because most of them don’t bubble up well. But OxygenCeuticals Purifying Foaming Wash creates fluffy foams. These sufficient bubbles can lessen the pressure on your face to minimize irritation while cleansing your face.

Furthermore, OxygenCeuticals Purifying Foaming Wash has passed the skin irritation test and be proved it doesn’t cause irritation. Mild but powerful. These words perfectly describe Purifying Foaming Wash.

After cleansing, it is good to use toner to remove residues clearly and to prepare your skin to absorb post-cleansing moisturizers. OxygenCeuticals Skin Balancing Toner is a watery toner that is not heavy on your skin to be used right after the cleansing.

Not only for its light texture but also Skin Balancing Toner is a slightly acidic toner that levels off your skin pH level to the subacidic range.

Furthermore, it contains freesia extracts and Centella Asiatica leaf extracts which are good for soothes sensitized skin and helps recover damaged skin while moisturizing the skin. Also, the chamomile flower extracts control the sebum secretion so the skin can retrieve the ideal O/W balance.

If you are concerned about pimples and acnes that cover your beauty, you need to check OxygenCeuticals Herbal Fluid out. It is a sort of ampoule that aims at skin troubles directly by gently exfoliating old dead skin cells with salicylic acid and controls sebum secretion with Herbal Complex.

For more details about the salicylic acid in the Herbal Fluid dissolves bonds between dead skin cells. In other words, it disconnects dead skin cells to be removed from the surface of the skin easily. Salicylic acid is an oil-soluble substance at the same time. So it melts to sebum in pores and gets rid of clotted sebum that can cause skin troubles.

Herbal Fluid is recommended to people who have oily and acne-prone skin. It relieves acne and pimples quickly so it can be used as a spot treatment. Apply it using the embedded pipette to the concerned area or to pimples after extraction.

The next steps are applying serum and cream that helps to control sebum and to alleviate acne scars. OxygenCeuticals had renewed its skincare set which is beloved by people who have oily, acne-prone skin. The former version contained Purifying Foaming Wash, Purifying Wintergreen Serum, and Purifying Wintergreen Cream in a box, but the new one only contains Purifying Wintergreen Serum and Cream.

Also, the textures of serum and cream had been changed to improve absorption. The serum changed from transparent to semi-transparent, and the consistency also became thinner yet the cream became a bit thicker than before. However, the whole ingredients are the same and the price also became more reasonable.

Both Purifying Wintergreen Serum and Purifying Wintergreen Cream are weak acid products with a pH level between 4 and 6. Thus, Purifying Wintergreen Serum and Cream can be used on every type of skin even on sensitive skin.

Moreover, both serum and cream contain wintergreen leaf extracts(natural salicylic acid) to smoothen rough skin and to control sebum production. Centella Asiatica leaf extracts soothe skin and moisturize skin at the same time. Niacinamide in this set brightens the skin. So it is helpful for people who are struggling with chronic acne and acne scars.

We’ve looked over the skincare routine for dehydrated-oily skin due to the high temperature and humid environment under the mask. The key point is to balance O/W ratio of the skin by using subacid skincare products. Let’s restore our beautiful skin with OxygenCeuticals and yell this out. “Maskne, OUT!”

Re-balance Your Skin: Dehydrated and Oily Skin

Autumn has come, the weather is getting colder and drier. Many people are struggling with their confusing skin conditions. The inside of the skin is so dry that you feel some tension, but the outside is too oily to add some rich creams on your face. That is because the Oil-Water(O/W) balance has been destroyed!

When the O/W balance has damaged, it can induce several types of combination skin. Today, I’m going to tell you about dehydrated and oily skin.

Ironically, this type of skin is really oily outside, but extremely dry inside like a desert. So the skin definitely needs hydrating, but most people, who have this skin type, are reluctant to apply rich creams since those creams are too oily.

In spite of this paradox, you should DO skincare more carefully. But what should we do? It is really confusing. Luckily, OxygenCeuticals has the solution as they always did.

The key point to improve this type of skin is hydrating your skin. If you are a person who thought that your current moisturizing skincare is quite heavy, I recommend you to change the items to a lighter texture.

OxygenCeuticals Moisture Aqua Serum will be the best choice for these people. It is in somewhere between essences and creams. Containing hyaluronic acid, it gives you intensive moisturize without any greasiness and stickiness.

Moisture Aqua Serum can be an instant treatment for dryness. The moisture content of skin rose as soon as applying this serum. However, you may see there isn’t greasiness on the model’s hand. So it relieves and hydrates your skin without any stress.

by the way, just adding moisture to the skin can’t be a complete solution. If your skin is not able to retain it, hydrating is meaningless to your skin. What you should do to avoid pouring water in a bottomless pot is coating the surface of your skin with a moisture layer.

OxygenCeuticals Acell-300 Fluid is the best pairing with Moisture Aqua Serum to lock moisture in your skin. It is a bit thick but still runny liquid. You might think it is a kind of facial oil, but surprisingly, it doesn’t have any oil in it.


Let me tell you a short story about its name. Can you guess what ‘Acell-300’ means? Actually it is a patented compound created a laboratory. To find a perfect moisturizing factor, researchers did experiment over and over. At the 300th trial, they finally developed the moisturizing compound which is suitable for every skin type. That was the origin of Acell-300’s naming.

Coming back to the topic, Acell-300 Fluid doesn’t contain any oil in it. Due to the special manufacturing technique of OxygenCeuticals, it can have oil-like but oil-free texture! So every person even who have oily skin can enjoy the beautiful glowing skin without messy and greasy sebum.

The reason why I told you the Moisture Aqua Serum and Acell-300 Fluid is a perfect combination is, a mixture of these two items let you achieve a synergistic effect of moisturizing since the hyaluronic acid in Moisture Aqua Serum raise the moisturizing effect of Acell-300 Fluid and make the Fluid thinner so that it spreads smoother.

Why don’t you re-balance the O/W balance by complementing moisture with these two powerful moisturizers? You probably be able to show your healthy and glassy skin off to people!
