Korea has a booming skin care market. I myself have not tried Korean skin care products, but I am going to this month. I will most likely start with a beauty mask.
Asian countries for the most part have a humid climate. Those living in this part of the world are more prone to oily skin and acne. They are also more susceptible to sensitivity. Discoloration is also another factor for people of color, and the best way to help avoid this is to make sure to wear a reputable product that has a strong SPF. Keeping skin out of direct intense sunlight as much as possible also helps, as does retinol and chemical peels.
A product with 10% sulfur can help reoccurring breakouts.
Other active ingredients that help with acne are benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid, the highest amounts being 2% and 2.5%, respectively.
When shopping for cleansers and toners, make sure to avoid anything with alcohol in it. The alcohol will dry your skin, but it will dry it too much. Your skin will try to compensate by producing even more oil, turning into a vicious circle. Cleansers with a more creamy texture that does not produce a lot of lather is ideal.
Witch hazel is a great toner (for everyone honestly) due to it’s astringent effects and naturally being alcohol free.
Best products for oily skin:
If Thayer’s Alcohol Free Astringents ever become discontinued, I will throw such a bitch-fit. This is the only thing that has kept my skin as clear as it can be while fighting monthly hormonal acne. I use the cucumber version because cucumber is a great ingredient in my constant battle against rosecea.
It is unlike any toner I have ever used. The cucumber makes this toner very refreshing and cools your skin off.
The best kind of moisturizer that compliments oily skin is any moisturizer in the form of a gel. Clinique makes a good gel moisturizer.
So you were friends with someone for a long time and they were talking shit about you behind your back for the duration of your friendship. If you had any sense in your head you would know that someone like Shane Dawson, who talks shit about everyone behind their backs, means that they are talking about YOU too. It is just a given.
Make one statement regarding how you feel about breaking up with a friend and let it freakin’ go already. You don’t see me making endless blog posts about somebody I thought was a friend turning on me, and I have an actual diagnosed mental illness that has left me too disabled to work a regular 9-5 job or a lot of the times makes everyday mundane tasks like cleaning a room feel like a Herculean effort, unlike you with your fake multiple personality crap. I take my meds, I talk to my therapist once a week, I try to at the very least to do all of the chores my parents ask me to do around the house while being a single mother to a nonverbal kid who has not been paid a lick of child support. I have to do unconventional things to make money for myself because even though I don’t have a “real job”, you are never ever going to catch me mooching or stealing off of any of my family members or anybody I consider a friend. Yes I would love if people donated to my blog all the time or that I could get bigger tips or that I could get more steady freelance work during this God-awful pandemic, but you don’t see me whining about it as much as you whine about Shane being two-faced.
I will always find my own way of making money first before I ever become dependent on a family member or a loved one to pay for all my expenses. Whatever money I get is in good faith and I’m not afraid to even donate a couple of bucks here and there. My life does not revolve around money, but clearly yours does.
If I can manage to shut up about the end of a friendship and move on, you can too.
This chick is very funny and very hot! One of her fans said that she discusses true crime the same way girlfriends gossip amongst each other, and I have to agree! She always has positive vibes to give and breaks down her true crime research in a very palatable way.
