Hi, I’m Director Pi, a YouTuber, and cosmetic ingredient analyst. Today I’m going to tell you about the skincare routines that would help keep your skin moisturized through fall and winter. Moisturizing skin care routine
Slightly acidic cleansing. The first step of the skin care routine is slightly acidic cleansing. I would recommend four types of cleansers: lotion, cream, gel, and oil. These products do not dry up your skin because it melts even without strong surfactants. The effectiveness goes from cleansing oil (most powerful), to cleansing cream and cleansing lotion, and to cleansing gel (least powerful). Cleansing gel minimizes the use of surfactants, cleansers, viscosity controlling agents, and polymer, so I would recommend it to people with sensitive skin. But remember that cleansing gels are not powerful cleansers so be sure you use it according to your daily makeup styles. I’ve applied some cosmetics that people normally use for their daily makeup on my arm to test the cleansing power. Both cleansing oil and cleansing gel remove most of the products, but as for mascara, there is some residue left as you can see in this picture. (left-cleansing gel, right-cleansing oil). The effects are not that bad, considering that it is a slightly acidic cleanser. I’ve done a pH level test, and you can see that the cleansing gel, lotion, and cream are slightly acidic, while the cleansing oil is close to neutral. Since slightly acidic cleansers don’t ruin the moisture barrier of the skin, it is great for moisturizing. Moisturizing skin care routine
Skincare routine for sensitive skin My skin is quite sensitive these days. I haven’t had laser therapy in the past 15 years, but I recently got a venus laser lifting treatment in order to review the dermatology treatments This is what happened after the treatment. My skin got red and there were suppurative blisters. My skin got so dry, so I tried a totally new routine for my skincare for two weeks. The products I used were all made for dry and sensitive skin. Soapuri never-dry facial bar 80g / 15,000won The ingredient list is similar to a mixture of cleansing oil and cleansing foam. Cupuacu Butter, cactus seed oil, avocado oil, peach seed oil, macadamia nut oil, camomille oil are all listed at the front of the ingredient list. The texture is very thick and it removes not only skin residues but also non-waterproof sunscreen, tone-up sunscreen, and lipstick. However, it’s not powerful enough to remove mascara, eyeliner, or waterproof sunscreen. It’s almost like dropping some cleansing oil into cleansing foams. It is a moisturizing slightly acidic cleanser. You would something to place the soap because it is very runny. I use two cakes of soap for a month because I use it to wash my body as well. This product isn’t cheap, but the price is appropriate considering the ingredients. keep cool and soothe bamboo toner 350ml / 28,000won The most important thing to focus on when you have sensitive skin is skin soothing. You should use a toner that soothes your skin, excessive moisturizing isn’t necessary. The package looks like a bottle of water. This product includes Hydroxyethyl Urea, hyaluronic acid, and sodium hyaluronate, which makes the product highly moisturizing. It doesn’t mean that it is like an oil toner, but the product is quite moisturizing. When your face is heated up, hyaluronic acid helps soothe your skin and maintain a good skin tone. 9wishes hydra serum 25ml / 19,500won This product brings a unique cooling effect through hyaluronic acid. The texture is slightly gooey, but it turns soft when you apply it. You can see that the texture is more concentrated and dense than the Keep cool toner. However, it isn’t a moisturizer that I would recommend for the fall or winter. You would need to apply additional layers of moisturizing cream. This is because it doesn’t include much of membrane forming ingredients. Squalane is a membrane-forming ingredient, and 25% of hyaluronic acid moisturizes the skin. This product is fit for people who have dehydrated oily skin. Skin&lab barrierderm intensive cream 50ml / 23,000won There are small particles in this cream that you should melt before applying. You would instantly feel moisturized due to the membrane forming ingredients. This product is great for people with dry skin. Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Cyclopentasiloxane, and Hydrogenated Poly are all powerful moisturizing agents that help keep moisture from evaporating. Ingredients like squalane, panthenol, and ceramide NP, protects skin membranes. Even though the contents are not plentiful, this amount is enough for moisturizing your skin. Another advantage of this product is that is absorbed into the skin quickly. It makes your skin soft, so it is a handy product. Skincare routine for people who applies makeup every day Cleansing oils that I would recommend for dry skin are.. 1. Products that only include natural oil 2. Products with a minimal amount of surfactants. 3. Products that don’t include any fragrance that can possibly lead to skin problems. Huangjisoo pure perfect cleansing oil 180ml / 27,000won This product includes natural oil and surfactants(Sorbeth-30 Tetraoleate). The main ingredient is natural oil. You should use it by emulsifying with water. This is a product that can be used on a daily basis. Sioris day by day cleansing gel 150ml / 19,000won People with dry skin should cleanse once and people with oily, dehydrated oily skin should double-cleanse. However, it is best to use a slightly acidic gel cleanser. The main ingredient of this product is Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract(56%) + Willow Bark Extract (2%) This product can exfoliate dead skin cells and soothe your skin. Decyl Glucoside and lauryl glucoside are nature-based cleansing agents. This product includes fragrance and natural oil, so people who are sensitive to these ingredients should be aware. It has a fresh citrus scent, and cleansing levels are about medium to low. It is similar to Mamonde Pure Sensitive Cleansing liquid, which is a neutral TOP OF TOP cleanser. Sadly, this item has been discontinued. Sioris day by day cleansing gel should be used as a secondary cleansing agent, or used in the mornings. Laneige cream skin 150ml / 28,000won This is basically an ultimate skin care product. The ultimate skin care product that I’ve made had the oil layer and toner layer separated. This product includes surfactants that mix the two ingredients, making a milky liquid. The main ingredient of this product is meadowfoam seed oil, butylene glycol, and glycerin. The container isn’t that great.. It is heavy and the top of the bottle is small. In other words, it prevents the product from leaking or pouring out. This product can be used for cleansing and for moisturizing. It doesn’t include any artificial fragrances or aroma oil, nor scents. People with neutral skin could use this product as an all in one toner. People with oily skin might find this product a little heavy to use as a toner. People who are sensitive to natural oil or people with oily skin would be better off with other products. Makeprem safe me relief moisture green ampoule 30ml / 26,000won This product includes bergamot oil for fragrance. It doesn’t include any base oil. The oily, essence-like texture helps the product absorb into the skin. It is soft and moisturizing, so it goes well with people with oily or dehydrated oily skin. Propolis extract (barriers) + Propane Diol (moisturizing ) are the two main ingredients. The pH level is 5.5, which is slightly acidic, and this product consists of a minimal ingredient list of 18 ingredients. The only thing I would change is this pipette. The product doesn’t come out easily because of its texture. hddn=lab skin saver concentrate 50g / 38,000won Concentrate usually means essence or ampoule, but this is closer to wax, oil, vaseline, or moisturizing cream. At first, it seems thick but it absorbs into the skin as you apply it. If the texture is too thick, mix it with Makeprem safe me relief moisture green ampoule. The key factor about this product is that it is a great substitute for petrolatum(vaseline) and mineral oil. It consists of Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, which is the main ingredient for lip balms and moisturizers, olive oil, and beeswax, which helps rest dead skin cells. A small amount of Ceramide NP and Ceramide AP is also included to restore skin barriers. Products with heavy textures are better applied when they are gently applied to your skin as if you are filling the surface with moisture. It instantly calms the dead skin cells around your lips. This product can also be used as an eye cream and for your neck. Moisturizing skin care routine
Special care Hanul Yuja sleeping pack 60ml / 30,000won Special care is for when you look extremely tired. 90% of the reviews of this product stated that the scent is great. This product includes citron peel oil(4,500ppm) instead of fragrance. If you are not sensitive to natural oil, it wouldn’t be a problem. It has small particles inside the product that melts when applied. You can see that the product is highly moisturizing. I would recommend using this product once or twice a week. Since it has cooling effects, it is fit for sleeping packs. Though it is highly mosituring, it may also feel a little sticky. This product includes niacinamide and adenosine, which are functional products that help improve wrinkles and whitening. Since the citrus includes Vitamin C complex, it is basically an anti-aging product. Hair & Body Dr. Broner’s organic coconut balm 60g / 23,000won This is a highly moisturizing multi balm. If you don’t have a spatula, use a cotton swab. It melts easily on your palm. As you can see here, the product is hard. The difference is evident when you compare it to Vaseline Vaseline is mineral oil, and organic coconut balm is plant oil. The moisturizing agents and membrane formers have similar textures. You can use this product as a substitute for vaseline. If you apply the balm around your eyes, it will prevent wrinkles. You can also use this product as a lip balm and a cleanser. I removed my eye makeup with this product using a cotton swab. It is also great for the body if you mix it up with body lotion. As for your hair, apply a thin layer onto your palms and gently set your hair or coat the damaged parts. I would recommend this to people with dry skin and only on the outer part. It is hard to prevent or remove stretch marks. However, you can prevent the stretch marks from getting worse. It is important to apply a lot of layers onto the areas. This product doesn’t include any fragrance so pregnant women and kids can use it. Melt this product with body lotion and apply several layers onto the stretch marks. It is even better if you massage that area. The base oil is a plant-based natural oil that isn’t volatile. It is highly moisturizing and nutritious. Coconut oil includes fatty acid and Vitamin C. Olive oil includes oleic acid and palmitic acid. Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil consists of omega 3,6. Jojoba oil includes omega 6,9. So far, I’ve told you how to use balm-type products in diverse ways. Aveeno skin relief moisturizing lotion 354ml / 19,900won This product includes benzyl alcohol as preservatives. Since it is volatile, people who are sensitive to alcohol should not use this product. I would recommend mixing balm or oil products with this lotion. This product alone doesn’t get absorbed into the skin that easily because it minimized surfactants. You should continuously tap and rub the lotion onto your skin. I personally liked the moisturizing finish. For dry areas such as knees, elbows, and feet, mix the body lotion and balm together and apply it after melting it on your palms. It doesn’t include any fragrance, but it has a grainy scent due to shea butter extract and Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract. Petrolatum gives a soft texture like silicone oil. Skin&lab barrierderm intensive cream 50ml / 23,000won
Biorga Hair&Body cleanser 1000ml / 18,500won This product is an oil-free cleanser targeting oily skin, but actually, it is fit for dry scalp. It does make your hair crispy than soft. As for the body, it feels as if the moisture barrier remains on your skin. I would recommend this to people with atopy and extremely dry skin. This is a gel type cleanser that is great for an all in one product. You can see that it is slightly acidic. It includes lavender oil fragrance for baby-powder scent. It also includes nature-based surfactants, fermented ingredient, protein, and barrier-forming ingredients. zinc oxide is included to relieve inflammation and control sebum. It is ok because you wash the product off. You wouldn’t have to apply body lotion in the summer, but you should apply it in winter. This product is very cost-effective. It is 18,500won for 1000ml. Moring skincare before makeup Your skincare should be simple because you apply other products in the mornings such as sunscreen or foundation. Laneige cream skin 150ml / 28,000won This product is effective for moisturizing deep into your skin. After applying this, use Makeprem safe me relief moisture green ampoule 30ml / 26,000won and hddn=lab skin saver concentrate 50g / 38,000won. Mix the two if necessary, but if you don’t feel dry, just apply the ampoule. These two products go well together because they don’t make your makeup cakey. Additionally, hddn=lab skin saver concentrate maintains the moisture barrier for a long time, making it easier to fix your makeup afterward. Apply this product on your lips with a cotton swab to avoid any lip cracks. You can always apply lip tints or lipstick over to make the color stand out. I would recommend moisturizing sunscreen such as A24 premeium sun protectuon cream SPF50+ PA+++ 30ml / 28,000won or Krave Beauty Beet the sun SPF 47 PA++++ 50ml / 20,000won. Choose one that fits your skin type and style.
