[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~

Happy Christmas!

It is already close to the year-end even though I remember the very first day of 2021 vividly. It has been such a tough year for most people, so we need to encourage each other by giving a bit of pick-me-up. Here’s the gift guide from OxygenCeuticals which is suitable for every skin type.

The first recommendation is Skin Barrier Ato Cream. If your beloved one is suffering from irritated skin, you may look into it! It is a gentle moisturizer that works well on all skin types including hypersensitive or damaged skin to soothe and recover faster. The secret of its powerful regenerative property is Fucoidan V. Fucoidan V is a kind of polysaccharide that is extracted from sea algae. This substance has strong therapeutic effects to protect seaweeds from tearing while it is rolling and waving under the sea.

Although it seems like an ointment, it doesn’t contain any steroidal ingredients. On the other hand, it contains Ceramide, so it helps to fortify the skin’s self-protection layer resulting in healthier glowing skin. The consistency of this moisturizer is not that thick as you expected. It is absorbed quickly, leaving nice hydration, and a fresh feeling without stickiness. In other words, it is suitable for daily moisturizer and good to layer.

The next suggestion is Age Defying Caviar Kit. This anti-aging skincare kit consists of Caviar Protein Fluid and Age Defying Caviar Cream. As you may notice, these two items contain a luxurious ingredient, black caviar extract. Caviar extract includes not only various, rich nutrients but also powerful antioxidants.

Moreover, both Fluid and cream are formulated with adenosine and niacinamide which are good for improving the firmness of the skin and brightening the dark spots. Particularly for the Fluid, the tiny black beads are collagen capsules embedding caviar extract. It melts down easily while you rub it on your skin.

As for the cream, Age Defying Caviar Cream, it is one of the most popular items of OxygenCeuticals’. Unlike other ‘anti-aging’ skincare products which are quite rich and even heavy to deliver intensive nutrients to mature skin, this caviar cream has a lighter texture. It leaves silky finishing instead of stickiness. Hence, the caviar cream has been beloved by all ages.

Last but not least, there is a superhero for the people who are suffering from dehydrated skin. Acell Moisture Kit, whose pet name is Moisture Locker, provides long-lasting, extra hydration to the skin. The kit consists of Acell-300 Fluid and Moisture Aqua Serum which become perfect hydrabooster when they are mixed together.

If you are a fan of OxygenCeuticals, you may have heard of the origin of the name Acell-300. To discover the best hydrating and moisturizing substance, the research team had done 299 trials and errors. At the 300th trial, the team finally developed the best and exceptional moisturizing factor, Acell-300. As Acell-300 Fluid has a quite thick consistency, many people misconceive it as an oil-based ampoule. However, the Fluid is never formulated with any oil. Rather, it is a water-based ampoule. The reason for its unique texture stems from the manufacturing technique named ‘hydrolipophilic method’. The substance made with this technique, like Acell-300, likes both oil and water. In order to its characteristic, it helps skin to capture moistures densely in the skin itself.

As its pet name, the components in the kit provide a beautiful watery glow immediately after application. Like above mentioned, the mixture of Acell-300 Fluid and Moisture Aqua Serum allows not only stronger hydration, but also better absorption and application. To achieve these synergistic results, mix Acell-300 Fluid and Moisture Aqua Serum in 1 to 1 ratio.

Every yearend leads people to a throwback. There must be other people who gave you the huge love so that you can stand each harsh moment. It is your turn to return the love to them. Hope you have a beautiful, warm, and fuzzy yearend filled with love! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! XOXO, OxygenCeuticals.

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!”.

How to Get Luminous Skin with the At-home Skincare?

The secrete key for naturally glowing skin is proper skincare. It helps skin be more clear and shimmer. OxygenCeuticals’ Skin-brightening products can make you achieve the more radiant skin. Here are the skincare products not only brighten the skin but also clear the complexions.

OxygenCeuticals Glutathione ToneUp Kit is composed of Glutathione Ampoules and Glutathione ToneUp Cream. As named ‘Glutathione’, these components contain glutathione, the powerful antioxidant. In addition to the well-known substance glutathione, the cream and ampoule also contain GIGAWHITE that is made from extracts of 7 swiss alpine botanicals. Their pigmentation improvement ability was proved by a clinical test, so they allow tone-up effect upon using the kit constantly.

For more details about how glutathione works in the skin, it removes free radicals like peroxides by reacting with them. At the same time, the skin absorbs functional ingredients that were delivered within the formula so that it becomes glowing clearly.

Not only by glutathione but by the incorporation of niacinamide and GIGAWHITE, the melanocytes in the skin are interrupted to the synthesis of melanin. This results in both skin brightening and preventing hyperpigmentation at once.

Let’s look into the components now. As above mentioned, Glutathione Ampoule contains 7 botanical extracts from swiss alpine region called GIGAWHITE. It revitalizes dull skin to be shine, and encapsulated glutathione enhances the brightening effect of the ampoule.

Meanwhile, Glutathione ToneUp Cream allows an instant brightening effect. It has a soft creamy texture so it is applicable easily without making any crease. Even though the formula itself seems quite pasty, but when you spread it out, it tones up the skin naturally, so it can be used as a makeup base cream or for foundation-free makeup looks.

Both ampoule and cream packed with glutathione so they remove free radicals in the skin which damages the skin. Moreover, unlike existing skin brighteners, OxygenCeuticals’ Glutathiones are infused with hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5(panthenol). Hence, they are strengthened their moisturizing effect.

The next item is OxygenCeuticals Bio Matirx Collagen Kit. There are two types of it, one is for professionals and the other one is for at-home skincare. This kit is aiming the skin that is sensitized and damaged, so it help skin boost its self-recovery ability.

In fact, many aesthetic clinics are still using collagen velvet mask. However, that sort of sheet mask is not easy to put on the skin properly for at-home skincare, and it might cause dryness after using it. OxygenCeuticals Bio Matrix Collagen Kit complements these shortages of collagen velvet mask.

Let’s go over what ingredients are in the formula first. The collagen kit is composed with Ampoule Booster and Bio Matrix Velvet Ball.

The Ampoule Booster contains a mixture of floral extracts. Highly concentrated lotus, rose, and jasmine flowers help skin be revitalized and soothes sensitized skin. This substance allows the skin to glow from the deeper side of it.

Meanwhile, the other component of the Bio Matrix Collagen Kit is definitely the collagen-related item. Honestly, Bio Matrix Velvet Ball can be called collagen itself. It is made up of frozen-dried collagen containing 90% of hydrolyzed collagen and 10% sodium hyaluronate.

Collagen used in OxygenCeuticals Bio Matrix Collagen Kit is marine collagen that was extracted from sea algae. Marine collagen has a much smaller structure compared to common collagen so the penetration of the marine collagen is higher than normal collagens. Also, it is frozen-dried so it keeps most natural nutrients and collagen structure hardly destroyed.

Not only for the high-quality ingredients, but also the usage is much easier than velvet mask. You can just mix the collagen ball and the ampoule booster and then stir it gently until the collagen ball melts down. Since the marine collagen is soluble in water and turns into essence when it is mixed with the booster, it helps the absorption of functional ingredients. As soon as use one collagen ball, the skin becomes tighten and plumps up. Moreover, the collagen balls are packed separately, so it is easy to keep hygiene.

With Bio Matrix Collagen Kit the home care version, you can get flawless skin much easier. To get synergistic results, put CryoGel Velvet Mask on the top of a layer of Bio Matrix Collagen mixture. It’ll boost the absorption of the ampoules.

Get beautiful skin with OxygenCeuticals skincare products. It will brighten not only your skin but also your day!
