Essential Step Before Skincare: Identifying Your Skin Type


Before embarking on any skincare regimen, there's a crucial step: knowing your skin type. Not understanding your skin type properly before diving into skincare can potentially lead to troubles and adverse effects. Therefore, understanding your skin type and knowing which areas need specific care is a wise approach to skincare.


1. What’s Your Skin Type

K-Beauty has gained worldwide popularity, and one significant reason lies in its commitment to providing personalized skin care based on individual skin types. Korean beauty brands invest considerable effort in developing products tailored to each person's unique skin condition and type.

  • Dry Skin: Dry skin is characterized by insufficient moisture, resulting in a dry and less elastic texture. This skin type tends to react sensitively to external factors such as UV rays, environmental pollutants, and dry air. 

  • Oily Skin: Oily skin is identified by excessive sebum production, leading to a shiny and oily complexion. This condition often causes enlarged pores and increases the likelihood of skin issues like acne. 

  • Combination Skin: Combination skin presents a unique blend of characteristics, with some areas being oily and others dry. The T-zone, including the forehead, nose, and chin, tends to be oilier, while the cheeks may experience dryness. 

  • Sensitive Skin: Sensitive skin reacts sensitively to various stimuli, displaying symptoms like itching, redness, and irritation. It can be aggravated not only by external factors such as chemicals and allergens but also by stress.

Moisturizing is crucial. Use moisturizers or nutrient creams to keep the skin hydrated. Use foundation with moisturizing properties during the day to protect the skin.

Use oil-control toner or lotion after cleansing to regulate sebum and prevent acne. Deep cleanse 1-2 times a week to remove impurities from pores.

Use oil-control products on the T-zone and moisturizing creams on dry areas to balance the skin. Deep cleanse 1-2 times a week to keep pores clean and maintain smooth skin.

Use all-in-one or sensitive skin-specific products. Check the ingredients and test on the inner elbow for safety before use.

Select appropriate skincare routines for each skin type to prevent skin troubles and maintain healthy skin. Consistent care and suitable product choices are crucial depending on your skin condition.

*After consultation with an expert, appropriate prescription is necessary.

  • Hy+balsam: Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) is primarily composed of hyaluronic acid, which easily binds with moisture, making it optimal for enveloping moisture. By facilitating the absorption of moisture and other active ingredients into the skin, it helps prevent dryness and itching, thus creating an optimized skin condition capable of self-protection against external environmental factors. Activating aquaporins (membrane proteins that induce passive transport of water molecules) increases the natural moisturizing factor in the stratum corneum, ensuring continuous supply and circulation of moisture in the epidermis to maintain healthy skin.

  • PANAFESOL: It's a peeling system tailored for different areas of the skin, allowing for the fundamental resolution of problematic areas. For thin or problematic areas such as cheeks, forehead, and eye areas, each treatment is customized to address the specific characteristics of modern skin. This involves setting different ingredients tailored to each area's needs. By adjusting pH levels and targeting issues like pigmentation, fine lines, and inflammatory acne, we can effectively address a variety of skin concerns.

  • Sizopirin Cellular: The Trans-X system is a protein penetration system that reaches deep into the skin. Proteins play a crucial role not only in maintaining the skin's normal condition but also in restoring it to its original healthy state. Optimized for the PTD method, the Trans-X system utilizes polyisobutene, a patented ingredient of Botox called "Volufiline," to inhibit neurotransmitters, thus smoothing wrinkles and filling the spaces between them. This method maximizes regeneration by providing abundant silk proteins, EGF, filler ingredients, etc.

Before starting any skincare treatment, it's crucial to identify your skin type and condition. By diagnosing your skin type and receiving appropriate care, you can effectively address skincare issues. If determining your skin type is challenging or if it's complex, consultation before treatment can provide recommendations for suitable care.
