Choosing skincare products

Hundreds of different skin care brands promise great results; however, many products just seem to fall flat. When you walk into the cosmetics or skin care aisle at the store, the options are overwhelming! You probably ask yourself, “How do I know which one to choose?” 

Don’t worry — you’re not alone! It can be challenging to find skin care products that are perfect for you, especially without knowledge of the ingredients. Seoul Mamas wants to help you find the perfect skin care product, so read on to learn how!

Understand Your Skin Type

Before you purchase a skin care product, you need to understand your skin type. There are three main skin types — normal, dry, and oily — that require different products to get the best results. If you want to learn more about your skin type, check out this Seoul Mamas blog: Understanding Your Skin Type.

You also need to determine if you have sensitive skin. Many people have sensitive skin when it comes to harsh chemicals, allergens, or environmental irritants, so make sure to steer clear of chemical-based products. Organic products are usually more gentle on the skin while also achieving great results.

Look at the Ingredients

The ingredients list on the back of the skin care product should be the first thing you look at when making your decision. Certain ingredients are clinically proven to work better for your skin type than others. Some of the most common ingredients you will find are Retinol, Alpha-hydroxy acids, and a variety of vitamins. Each vitamin serves its own purpose: 

  • Vitamin A – Treat Wrinkles
  • Vitamin B5 – Hydrate Skin 
  • Vitamin C – Skin Elasticity
  • Vitamin D – Acne Treatment
  • Vitamin E – UV Protection
  • Vitamin K – Skin Healing

Learn what your skin needs and look for products that have vitamins to protect, heal, and manage your skin during your daily skin care routine.

Try Samples

Samples are a great way to learn how your skin will respond to the product before purchasing a full-sized bottle. If you have sensitive skin, you will be able to determine how it will affect your complexion without the commitment. Try several different products that relate to your skin type and make a note of your skin’s health after using each product.

Develop a Routine

The most important step when trying the find the perfect skin care product is developing a daily routine. It can be difficult to see the results you want right away when you are using a new product. But don’t worry, your skin just needs time to adjust. 

There are three main steps to incorporate into your daily routine: cleansing with a water-based product, toning, and moisturizing. As you do these three simple steps, you will begin to notice a difference in your skin. If you need a new routine, follow this 10-Step Korean Skin Care Routine!
