I finally tried Korean Skin Care Products for acne prone skin

This post is a collaboration with StyleKorean

1. Cleanser
Fresh Green Tea Foam Cleanser 150ml / $8.64

Every morning when I wake up and every night before I go to sleep I use to clean my face with a foam cleanser. I do prefer this type of cleanser rather than a gel one because my skin feels significantly cleaner with just a very small amount of product. I recently switched from my La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Face Wash to Nature Republic Green Tea simply cause even though the previous product did a great job I wasn't really seen any different in the texture of my face. The Green Tea cleanser leaves my skin super smooth and moisturized and unlike many other foam cleansers, it doesn't brake me out. But why this particular product is so good for acne prone skin?

The ingredients: Green tea water, sea water, soybean oil, licorice extract, Centella asiatica extract, chamomile flower extract, Portulaca Oleracea extract.

Green tea can treat hormonal acne by reducing the levels of potent sex hormones. While green tea may not be a miracle solution, it's definitely a big step towards clear skin. Most of the polyphenols in green tea are catechins. Catechins, which are antioxidants by nature, have also been shown to function as anti-inflammatory and anticancer agents.

2. Toner (morning)
Snail Bee High Content Skin 150ml / $20.00

Let's be honest, toners weren't a part of my everyday skin care routine till a year ago. I have learned the importance of using an all-natural toner by actually seeing the results that these products can have on your skin if you use them religiously. The ingredients that this particular toner has was recommended to me by more than a few people that face the same skin problems for way longer than I have. The reason is no other than its ability to treat the damaged areas of my face. Why is this toner a miracle for acne scars?

The Ingredients: Snail Secretion Filtrate, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Water, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Human Ogliopeptide-1, Bee Venom, Diospyros Kaki Leaf Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Plantago Asiatica Extract, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Ulmus Campetris (Elm) Extract, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Athaea Rosea Root Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Betaine, Bacillus Ferment, Panthenol, Beta-Glucan, Allantoin, Azelaic Acid, Adenosine

This toner contains Snail secretion, Bee Venom (among others) that are practically the Holy Grail of a scar-free skin. Snail Secretion Filtrate works on scarring by softening and dissolving existing scar lesions and damaged tissues, as well as rebuilding collagen and elastin back up to levels that existed before the scars took effect. Bee Venom is anaphylactic , so it can temporarily relax your facial muscles , break down cell membranes, and improve circulation, which can create a tighter and smoother complexion. It can also plump out and firm your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
