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!”

4 Steps of Skin Care for Acne Prone Skin

There are many reasons for skin break out. Imbalanced hormone secretion, irregular life cycle and external irritation from the environment. Recently, due to wearing masks all day, many people are suffering with skin troubles like pimple, acne, redness etc…

We are wearing mask to stay healthy, but our skin is getting worse because of it. We MUST wear mask for a while, then what should we do for our skin?

Basically, you should keep your life cycle regularly. Wake up in the morning and having meals at each proper time, go to bed earlier at least at 11 p.m.. However, more direct reason for this type of break out is because the imbalanced moisture and oil ratio on your skin.

On the other hand, lack of oil let your skin lose a lot of moisture, your skin will be dry and sensitive.

People know how important it is to cleanse their skin at the end of the day. However, there is an thing you might be missing. Most of cleansing foam in beauty market are promoting themselves like “we cleanse all of oil and dirt on your skin!”.
