[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 Sensitive Skin

What is Sensitive Skin?

Some people just have picky skin. It seems even looking at the wrong skincare product can cause redness and irritation for some people. Generally, sensitive skin is caused by a weak skin barrier. This can be caused by being too rough with your skin or it can just be a genetic predisposition.

But not to worry, there are still a lot of skincare products out there that people with sensitive skin can use. OxygenCeuticals’ sensitive skincare line are not only suitable for sensitive skintypes, but can help improve and strengthen skin!

Let’s take a look!

1. Cleansing

Any skincare routine has to start with cleansing. A lot of people feel that some cleansers strip their skin of all of their moisture, leaving it feeling taut and dry. OxygenCeuticals suggests two cleansers that get the cleaning job done without destroying the skin’s natural moisture barrier.

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. 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.

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 few different toners that work well for sensitive skin. Let’s check them out!

  • 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.
    • Key Ingredients: Centella Asiatica Leaf Extract / Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extract / Adenosine / Allantoin
    • How to use:
      1. Apply adequate amount to the face.
      2. Gently tap into the skin until absorbed.
        • Mix with Clarifying Mask or HA Gel to create a soothing facial mask or as a base before or after facial treatments.
  • Cryogenic Activator
    • Contains high amount of dissolved oxygen and minerals from desalinated deep sea water. Soothes and regenerates skin after facial procedures such as LASER, peeling, and microneedling therapy.
    • Key Ingredients: Sea Water / Oxygen
    • How to Use:
      1. Spray mist onto the face.
      2. Spray cotton pads with activator to create a mummy mask.
  • D:O2 Activator
    • Double oxygen skin booster with pure oxygen that instantly soothes and moisturizes the skin after aesthetic procedures.

    • How to Use:
      1. Spray adequate amount onto face at toner step.
      2. Reapply onto the skin as needed.

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 ‘third-step’ 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 even has a peel suitable to use on sensitive 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 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 moistened 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. 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 sensitive skin!

Couperose Fluid

A soothing fluid packed with Hydrolyzed Collagen that helps in the recovery of
damaged skin. Calms redness, atopy, and sensitive skin.

What does ‘couperose’ even mean? It’s a French word used to describe Rosacea, a chronic skin disorder. Those with “couperose skin” have inflamed, redness-prone skin, but they may not necessarily suffer from Rosacea. This condition is pretty common for people with fairer skin tones.

Our Couperose Fluid is ampoule targeted towards calming and soothing red and inflamed skin. It contains two powerful soothing ingredients: Aloe Vera Leaf Extract and Cabbage Rose Flower Water. Both of these ingredients cool down inflamed skin, thereby reducing visible redness.

It also contains hydrolyzed collagen for improved skin elasticity and hyaluronic acid for moisture. So if you have dry and sensitive skin, this fluid will be just the thing for you!

To use the Couperose Fluid:

  1. Apply 1-2 drops of the fluid to the skin.
  2. Pat gently until fully absorbed.

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 few different serums that work amazingly on sensitive skin!

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.

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?

If you know skincare, you’ll know that a sheet mask actually should come before any cream or moisturizer is applied to the skin. Originating in South Korea, the sheet mask is basically a sheet, soaked in an ampoule, to sit and let absorb into the skin for bonus nutrients.

Let me show you OxygenCeuticals’ best sheet masks for sensitive skin!

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 short fibers, called linter, around cotton seeds, this fabric absorbs more of the ampoule in the mask and sits on the skin 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 redness-prone skin, you’ll feel instantly refreshed after using this mask!

To use the Ceutisome CC Mask:

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

Ceutisome PP Mask

It hydrates and regenerates irritated skin after medical procedure. Furthermore,
it soothes sensitive and irritated skin caused by external stress and irritation.

OxygenCeuticals specializes in post-procedure care. That’s how we started out! So we know exactly what it takes for a good sheet mask to calm and soothe irritated skin after procedures like microneedling, microblading, lasers, etc.

The Ceutisome PP Mask is such a mask. This sheet is crafted with soft cotton and eucalyptus fibers mixed in an optimal ratio to rest gently on the skin without itchiness or irritation. Designed to be used directly after dermatological treatments, this mask accelerates damaged skin recovery. It also contains DNA to enhance skin cell regeneration and ceramide to strengthen the skin barriers.

If you have sensitive skin and want some relief, the PP mask can provide instant calming to your skin.

To use the PP Mask:

  1. Adhere the mask to the skin evenly.
  2. Leave the mask on for 10-20 minutes.
  3. Remove the mask and gently massage the skin with the remaining essence.
  4. Layer with PP Cream for maximum recovery.

If these two masks don’t match your skin concerns. We have a few other masks available!

If you want an extra boost of moisture, try our Cryogel Velvet Mask. If you want a mask that seals in the nutrients from your serums or creams while also cooling the skin, try our CT Modeling Mask!

7. Cream

Couperose Cream

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

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!

To use the Couperose Cream:

  1. Apply an adequate amount to the skin.
  2. Gently tap until it is absorbed.
  3. Recommended to use Couperose Fluid first and then layer with Couperose Cream for better soothing and calming benefits

If the Couperose Cream isn’t for you, you can also try PP Cream if your skin is irritated from a dermatological procedure. If you’d like to enhance your skin barriers and build up skin immunity, try the Skin Barrier Ato Cream. If you’d like some anti-aging benefits from your cream, try the ReGenon Cream. Finally, if you want some after sun 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. If you have sensitive skin, then the sun might just be your number one enemy.

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.

This super lightweight sun screen protects your skin from UVA and UVB sun rays to prevent sun damages like dark spots, sun spots, premature aging, and even more dangerous conditions.

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)
  2. Use a the final step in your daily skincare routine.
  3. Or finish with Intensive Blemish Balm to reveal healthy, glowing skin.

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

For extra sun protection and some skin evening action, try out OxygenCeuticals Intensive Blemish Balm and O2 Cushion as an everyday makeup combo.

9. Skincare Kits

Until next time!

Hey, Summer!

In the summer seasons, it is too difficult to maintain the skin temperature and keep the skin in a good condition due to the hot and humid weather. The high temperature heats the skin resulting in more greasy but dry skin. In this case, it is essential to replenish the skin with moisture. However, many moisturizers can be a burden for the skin as most of them are oily. Then what should we use for the summer skincare?

OxygenCeuticals recommends three types of skincare items to people who are looking for summer skincare items.

1. #Toning_Gel, the calming and cooling care for the sensitized skin to return to daily life quickly

2. #Moisture_Aqua_Serum, the gel-like moisturizing serum that balances oil-water ratio.

3. #Hydrating_Cream, the brightening cream that allows intensive hydration without stickiness.

In summer, the skin temperature goes up easily. Then the water in the skin evaporates resulting in dryness and losing the oil-water balance. The unbalance of the oil-water ratio might cause skin breakouts. In this case, a gel-type formulation is proper to soothe and cool the skin.

Toning Gel is a gel-type facial toner as you can guess from its name. It optimizes the oil-water balance of the skin by delivering an adequate amount of moisture. Also, the consistency of Toning Gel turns to a watery texture when it is rubbed on the skin due to absorbing the heat. In other words, it converted to the texture that can be absorbed to skin easier while it lowers the temperature.

In addition to its unique texture, there are some more features you might be interested in. The Toning Gel contains Centella asiatica leaf extract, which is also called cica, and aloe vera leaf extract. These ingredients calm the sensitized skin and help with creating a moisture layer to rebalance the oil-water ratio in the skin. Moreover, Toning Complex™ in the Toning Gel that is made up of several herbal extracts. This special compound relief the stress of the skin and even out the complexions.

To summarize the benefits of Toning Gel, as containing various herbal extracts to soothe the skin and improve the complexion, the Toning Gel is good for sensitized skin. Also, it can be used as pre-/post-procedure skincare item because it cools down the temperature and helps with skin recovery.

The next product is Moisture Aqua Serum. It has a light gel-like texture so some people might think it is too light for their skin. However, you should not forget that Moisture Aqua Serum. In hence of hyaluronic acid in the formula, Moisture Aqua Serum provides superb hydrating and moisturizing effects. Additionally, it contains no substance that can provoke acne so all skin types including hypersensitive skin are suitable to use Moisture Aqua Serum.

We can’t miss out on the key ingredients of Moisture Aqua Serum. As above mentioned, the serum contains hyaluronic acid which is also called a moisture tank as the 1 hyaluronic acid molecule can hold moisture 600 times as much as its molecular weight. Arginine helps skin replenish with nutrients to smoothen the rough texture. Green tea extract, containing vitamins and tocopherols, protects the skin by soothing it and enhances the moisture retention ability.

Moisture Aqua Serum delivers a generous amount of moisture to the skin immediately. In an experiment to check the moisture level of the skin before/after applying Moisture Aqua Serum, the moisture level increased to 50%.

Obviously, it fully hydrates skin without leaving any burdensome or stickiness as it is absorbed very quickly. So, Moisture Aqua Serum allows smooth application and instant hydration. It will save your skin from chronic dryness.

The last step of basal skin care is to apply moisturizing cream for sealing moisture into the skin. OxygenCeuticals Hydrating Cream supplies an extraordinary moisturizing effect to the skin since it creates moisture later on the skin.

Hydrating Cream has a creamy but light texture so it is absorbed without leaving stickiness. Not only minimizing the loss of moisture, but it also supplies a number of nutrients and brightens the skin tone at the same time. In fact, the skin brightening effect of the Hydrating Cream is certified by an authorized agency in Korea.

The summer season might be annoying to some people as inducing problematic skin. However, when you are going with OxygenCeuticals, they are probably able to welcome the season by saying “Hey, summer!”.
