A Method That Can Rescue ANY Dehydrated SkinType
As promised in my first post I’m here to talk to you guys again about the KOREAN 7 - SKIN METHOD. ( In Korean skin means toner) A little Refresher: A Hydrating Toner is water + a humectant. A toner is highly effective because they are thin and absorb at a fast rate, which means you can layer this product comfortably, without fear of it being to heavy. I layered my toner using the 7 skin Method. Now when doing this method you want to make sure your using a non- irritating toner or essence (if an essence make sure it is lightweight and not to heavy). This method is all about finding a hydration level that is comfortable for you skin type because 7 layers might be comfortable to me but not for the next person. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO APPLY ALL 7 LAYERS!! AGAIN DO WHATEVER WORKS FOR YOU!! It is recommended that you start off with three and increase your layers to 7 ONLY IF YOU WANT TO!! This is a method that is meant to be done in a consecutive order... 1.Cleanse 2.Tone layer 1, layer 2, layer 3,layer and so forth 3.Continue with the rest of your routine When applying make sure that you allow a drying time between applications!! I am going to leave a link below on how to get the most out of the 7 skin method by avoiding certian mistakes: https://theklog.co/7-skin-method-biggest-mistakes/amp/ If this method is to much (as in layering consecutively) you can follow The Golden Rx method a LICENSED ESTHETICIAN: https://youtu.be/b8nKTHwufZc 1.Cleanse 2.Tone 3.Exfoliate 4. Tone 5. Mask 6.Tone 7.serums 8.Tone 9.Moisturize and Oil ** This method allows for spaces/breaks from toning in between so you can apply different products but your still achieving that good level of hydration for your skin** Now your probably wondering why do I need so much toner or (hydrating toner)?? Well to simply put it—WATER!! “Water is a transport system” according to the GoldenRx. This means water will make your skin permeable allowing all your other products to penetrate effortlessly, effectively and efficiently! While getting in a good amount of hydration, especially if your skin is dehydrated!! I’ve been trying this method out for about a week now and my oiliness has decreased drastically (I also use niacinamide and have been for a while, it’s made a difference too) but adding a hydrating toner has been a game changer. I literally throughout the day don’t have to blot my face with a blotting sheet or napkin as much any more, and you know if you don’t have to do those things throughout your day you are doing something right! When layering I use 4 layers of hydrating toner and if I’m feeling up for it I will use 1-2 layers of an exfoliating toner. I hope this method helps you as much as it’s helped me so far (I’ll keep you posted) and if you want to read more about skin hydration and mositurization here is another link: https://www.cosmedica-skincare.com/blogs/news/hydration-vs-moisture-what-does-my-skin-need Remember Hydrated skin is Healthy and Happy Skin!
Sorry for the late response. Long story short I had a lot of personal/family issues throughout the week. Some nights I couldn’t do my usual skincare routine but still do every morning. Well enough about that stuff so after week 1, I don’t see much difference. Perhaps a little lighter but I also have been using other products I have not mentioned a long with basic spray on sunscreen to prevent further sun damage and wrinkles. Along with that Korean skin care routine it has been said (no cite sourced) that the oriental culture and their secret to youthful bright skin is because they are raised with using and live by sunscreen. Apparently the recommendation (still haven’t read the can) is that we should apply sunscreen every 2 hours that we are outside. We should even use it in the winter/all other seasons because we still get those UV rays. I did not know this! I thought one application and we’re good but nope! No wonder I still get tanned/sunburn after application in the past! So back on to the rest of the products! OBAGI - Exfoliating Polish - I still really love this product, I felt like this first week and 2 I have not used it as much as I liked. I have dry skin and with the other products that cause dryness (will explain later) I should have used it more. I have combination so when I have dry skin I use this product 2-3 times a week. On my “oily-er” days. I use it 1-2 times a week. I bet if I used this product more my milia/clogged pores would have diminished quicker. ZO SKIN HEALTH - Exfoliating Cleanser Normal Cleanser - I actually like this cleanser. I find it odd though, perhaps because I’m not used to having normalized skin lol, but afterwards my skin does not feel tight nor oily. This is by far the best cleanser I have used when it comes to my combination skin. However, I’m not sure if things will change during winter due to the fact that my skin is extra dry during cold weather but for the summer it seems to have my t-zone and other areas balanced. ZO SKIN HEALTH - Complexion Renewal Pads - er... I have brought down my rating due to the fact that I do not see any difference. I meant to get my vitamin-c brightener from Zein Obagi and accidentally got the wrong bundle but I tend to love all their products so I was willing to try. I see no difference in my skin and either this product or the Acne Control dried up my skin for the first week. I will not be getting this product again. Although, this may help with sensitivity and ph balance. Their other products tend to have multi-purpose (eye cream has retinol which also fights acne, milia, clogged pores, blackheads.) So I’m not too concerned about using this particular product. I rated it a 3-star because it did not break me out or cause any redness. ZO SKIN HEALTH - Daily Power Defense - I also lowered the ratings for this because you literally won’t see any(to be continued..)

How I Fight My Bad Sleeping Habits With Korean Beauty🤭🤭
This quarantine has affected everyone’s sleeping habits, spending so much time at home without any pressure of waking up early, has given us the freedom to stay up late to relax and enjoy watching a movie or simply procrastinating in anything that can easily entertain us. I’m guilty as charged! I’ve tried fixing my bad sleeping habits, but even before quarantine I already had big issues sleeping early so this is made it worse in my opinion. Not sleeping correctly has some effects on our skin like making it look dull and more prone to wrinkles as well. Luckily for us, there are some products designed to fight these issues and Korean beauty brands are experts at making them. Koreans are known, among many other things, for how beautiful and almost perfect their skin look. I’m sure it has crossed our mind, more than once, to have clear and soft skin like famous K-pop idols, whose skin looks like porcelain. A girl can dream right? Skincare if part of their culture for sure, and maybe the western world could learn a thing or two about adding it to our weekly routines, and with this help common skincare related issues caused by bad sleeping habits. Today I’ll tell you about 2 products of one of my favorite Korean brands which you probably heard of before, Tony Moly. TONYMOLY - I'm Real Aloe Mask Sheet- Ever since I found out about the existence of sheet masks, I felt really curious about them, and knew I had to try them. Not sleeping correctly messes up with the skin’s PH levels, lowering them and causing dry skin. That’s why a sheet mask is a great alternative with fast results. Tony Moly offers a great variety depending of masks, depending on your skin’s concern. I’m particularly a fan of anything Aloe Vera related, so when I saw this mask and didn’t think twice and I chose this one. It’s my favorite ever since. It’s a 3-layer sheet soaked in enriched Aloe Vera extract and it’s focused on providing maximum hydration to your skin. It should be applied after you clean your face and pat it dry. Simply leave it on for 20-30 minutes and massage any leftover product into your skin. You don’t want to waste any of it! It leaves my skin with a healthy glow and it feels revitalized. You can find it in Ulta and it’s really affordable, less than $4 USD. TONYMOLY - Cat's Purrfect Brightening Eye Mask - I LOVE cute packaging and anything related to cats, so this was a must as soon as I saw it on the shelf. This is like a sheet mask but aimed only for the eyes, making it ideal for when you have puffy eyes and a dull look. It has some interesting ingredients that you don’t typically see on most sheet masks, like milk protein, pumpkin, watermelon and lettuce, but they all have an specific purpose that will help reduce fine lines around your eyes and brighten your skin. Simply leave it on for 15 minutes and you are done! Don’t forget to use and extra product on areas where the sheet didn’t fully cover like under your eyes. Massage the product like with the previous product until it’s fully absorbed.

Get rid of blackhead with me👀
CNP LABARATORY Anti Pore Blackhead 2 step Clear Kit//Brand from CNP Laboratory. Pack Size - 10 pairs I got this from Amazon! Most nose kits I saw and tried from other brands have 3 steps, so I was very curious about the 2 steps. So what’s the difference? The first step is a damp nose patch which stays on for about 15 minutes to prepare the skin. On the back there is only Korean so I don’t know what other information is provided. The second step is a nose patch with essence which you keep on for 5 minutes. The essence absorbed well and left my skin refreshed and clean. There was no redness at all. So this set comes without a nose strip which is very nice, because I feel like it is gentler than sets with a nose strip. The effect is just as satisfying though! My pores looked clear right after using the kit and also the next morning. The fragrance of the first step stings in the nose and is not exactly pleasant, but it faded after a few minutes. Overall a very effective and time efficient kit!
