Make your first venture into Korean skincare uncomplicated.
Everybody wants good and healthy-looking skin. While not everyone has good genes, achieving clear skin with consistency, patience, and of course, great skincare products is possible.
Whether you’re a newbie or a pro in skincare, finding a routine that fits your needs can be challenging. There are so many things to consider, like brands and ingredients. But it’s important to remember that each person’s skin is different.
Whether you prefer a 10-step Korean method or a minimalist one with just 3-steps, pin down the basics, then explore. From there, go with whatever works for you.
Start your skincare regimen with a cleanser
There’s a reason cleansing comes first. It rids your skin of the day’s gunk, oil, and other unwanted debris to prepare your skin for the good stuff. The iWhite Korea Acne+ Facial Wash helps fight against acne and blackheads by clearing impurities and detoxifying the pores. This facial wash has tea tree extract, which has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It also has salicylic acid that regulates sebum production and skin renewal. Aside from that, it’s gentle and perfect for any skin type.
This is the one for you if you’re looking for a good cleanser that helps protect your skin barrier and retains moisture.
Prep and prime: ACNE+ Toner Essence
After cleansing, it’s time to tone. Think of this step as a boost to help your skin absorb all of the good ingredients for maximum effect. And what’s great is that the iWhite Korea Acne+ Toner Essence is both a toner and an essence, giving your toning step an extra boost.
Toners help balance skin pH, while essences give your skin more hydration. The Acne+ Toner Essence is formulated with Centella asiatica extract and tea tree leaf water. Its memory gel technology helps control oil and sebum buildup while repairing your troubled skin. It’s also alcohol-free, so it won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. Toners that contain alcohol can make your skin irritated and dry.
Locked and loaded: Acne + Aqua Moisturizer
Moisturizers are probably one of the most important products in skincare. They hydrate and lock in the nutrients present in other products. It’s important to know that not all moisturizers are the same—some work better for certain skin types, much like any other product.
The iWhite Korea Acne+ Aqua Moisturizer is light on the skin thanks to its water-based formula and can be used in the morning and at night. Packed with aloe vera, cabbage leaf extract, and Centella asiatica extract, this product will help nourish, smoothen and strengthen your skin, giving it a bouncy, dewy feel.
Ingredients matter in skincare
When it comes to skincare, always choose the products that complement your skin, with formulas and ingredients backed by science. It pays to read the label since many beauty products contain preservatives or chemicals that may dry or irritate your skin. If you have sensitive skin, do a patch test and wait a day or two to ensure it’s safe for you to use.
You can now get your own iWhite Korea products in all convenience stores, department stores, drugstores, and supermarkets nationwide. If online shopping is more your speed, you can go to Beauty MNL, Lazada, Shopee, Watsons, or the brand’s official website.
Remember, to achieve flawless skin, you must take care of it from the inside out. Get good sleep every night, manage your stress, and eat properly. Most importantly, as iWhite Korea always says, remember to take care of yourself first. “I” first, always!
