How to care for the skin by ‘skin-type’☝️
All of the skin types required in common is ‘MOISTURIZING’
One of the known common mistakes of oily skin is not properly managing moisture. Oily skin doesn’t prefer the nourishing, thick moisturizer due to the oiliness. We usually recommended to use moisturizer that has less oil and more moisture.
✅ Recommended Products: Ultra Hyaluronic Toner and Ultra Hyaluronic Ampoule: Highly concentrated Hyaluronic Acid that delivers an immediate and extreme moisturizing effect to your skin.
✅ Recommended Product: Vita C Bright Serum: The serum contains Vitamins for giving skin an antioxidant effect, and Niacinamide also regulates sebum production within your skin.
Dry skin needs "nourishing and moisturizing" product. However, if your skin dries up too quickly, you need 'moisturizing-layering'. Instead of applying a lot of heavy and stuffy cream at once, it’s good to apply moisturizing products adequately in layers to provide time for your skin to absorbs them sufficiently.
✅ Recommended Product: Black Snail Collagen Toner: Moisturizing essence toner against dryness.
If your skin feels so dehydrated, soak 6-7 cotton pads and apply on your face. Leave it on for 5 minutes. You can use the toner as a sheet mask.
✅ Recommended Product: Black Snail Collagen Cream
