Beginner’s Korean Skincare Routine: Dehydrated Combination-Oily Skin Type

That’s the hijack reason motivation for today’s post. Before we begin, I would exactly like to remind everyone that I am not just a medical professional and the thoughts in this post are purely based off my own personal experience and method of skincare. Image from my Multi-Step Korean Skincare Routine: Winter/Spring 2015 posts. I also have an Updated Summer 2015 Routine Post for a hot-season example.

So here we go: if you have Dehydrated, Combo-Oily skin like me, this post’s for you, epidermis twin. I’ve pretty much made serenity with my Dehydrated & Combination skin, and its own quirky choices, and I needed to talk about it with my epidermis twins out there. This is tricky.

You can Google where to find your skin type, which is an excellent start if you are beginning with scuff on your skincare journey, or even have it professionally assessed if you can afford it. However, I’ve noticed that most people who find themselves falling in love with a Korean (or Asian) skincare routine already are thinking about skincare and seeking to take it to another level. Therefore, they’re already familiar with their type of skin and exactly how it responds to products.

Normal: well balanced, neither Dry nor Oily. Who knew my snow stickers could come in Handy for things apart from expressing my emotions about sheet masks? This is not always the case, as you could have oily, and dried out areas in virtually any area, but many people with Combination skin have this design.

  • Few irregularities or blemishes
  • No awareness
  • Keep client’s fingernails short; have customer wear mitts if necessary
  • Leaders Is A Great Brand For Sensitive Skin
  • Use rose drinking water as a skin toner
  • 2 oz . organic olive oil
  • Helps improve the appearance of ageing skin
  • 10 to 15

But what if your skin layer is perpetually dry and oily at the same time, with dry flakes nestled next to, or on top of, clogged blemishes and pores? What if the greater creams you apply, the more oily and clogged your skin becomes, but you’re still a flake monster? Imagine if you’re trying to control your sebum with oil-free products, but your pores and skin seems flaky and limited?

Congratulations and sympathies, because you’re probably a Dehydrated type of skin like me. Just as Asian, organic medicine focuses on the total amount between yin and yang, cold, and hot, etc, Korean skincare strives to have a balance of water and oil in the skin. Lemme say that again: water, not just oil, may need to be put into your skin, and both need to be in balance for healthy, well-adjusted skin.

This is where in fact the light of illumination broke through the clouds of ignorance for me. Water, not more essential oil, might be what my parched skin needed. In the real name of the Snail, amen. In the west, we learn that dry skin needs essential oil, and oily skin needs oil-free products, the final end.
