Do you experience the feeling of sensitive, warm and/or red/flushed skin? Especially the feeling of needing to calm it down and make it feel fresh is irresistible. But what about sudden recognition of oilier skin that causes breakouts more often such as acne, blackheads, whiteheads etc.? And if we take into consideration sweat – though sweating is a good thing and removes impurities from your skin, it comes with cons as well. Dried sweat and other waste from the skin might clog your pores and cause acne and other breakouts. And.. ah.. not to forget!! I personally find it the most important one, the sun!! UV rays, sunburns, etc., you probably know yourself what effects the sun might have on your skin!
As we are now halfway through spring and next month summer starts, you might be in search of some good skincare products you can rely on these warm days.
Around this time of the year and in summer the weather might have a lot of impacts on your skin, so let’s look at some great k-beauty skincare suggestions for skin problems that appear quite often these warm days and why! (Btw, there is no order of preference in this listing) 😊

This clay has a moist finish. *This pink clay mask will not dry like clay masks normally do!! Rinse off after 20 minutes, even the mask does not dry.
This wash off clay mask absorbs sebum deep from inside the pores. It removes waste and oil that causes acne and tightens and shrinks pores. It firms up the pores and skin, cooling it down.

About these three in the Dr. Derma Barrierderm Line – all while being very moisturizing it targets sensitive skin too! It calms down sensitive skin because of Azulene. Azulene (which also gives this ampoule its natural purple color of the ampoule) relieves damaged skin and redness. The Fila-seed moisturizes and composes the skin barrier and the ceramide vitalizes moisture in the skin.
These skincare products are also recommended because they keep your skin condition stable, so your skin is always calm and protected from breakouts. It is also good to use when your skin suddenly breaks out as it makes your skin calm and clear. Read more about it here.
