Skin Oils

Skin Oils

Korean women swear by a technique called double cleanse system that involves removal of the entire day’s makeup by using a gentle oil based cleanser that extracts all the sebum and bacteria from the skin and a water-based cleanser to remove sweat etc.

The whole point of using oil is to ensure that your skin doesn’t dry out and lead to a minimal amount of tugging. Also, only oil-based cleansers can extract all the oil-based debris because water-based cleansers cannot mix with oil.

Next, usage of a gentle foaming water-based cleanser helps in removing impurities(such as sweat) that are left behind. You never tug on the skin, only move your fingers in circular motions(if it turns milky, you’re doing it right!)

Essence

Essence

Essences, which are nourishing liquid concentrate that preps the skin for serum application by bringing water deep into the skin and balancing the pH. It also enhances the skin’s cellular renewal process, leading to a lighter complexion and firm skin. It is used post cleansing and applied directly onto the skin till absorbed by using the heat generated by the hand to allow deeper penetration.
