A few simple steps is all it takes to understand common Asian skin concerns to get your best beautiful skin.
Pamper Your Sensitive Skin
Asian skin is often more sensitive to chemicals than other ethnic skin types due to a thinner epidermis (or top) layer of skin. Moisturizing regularly is one of the best things you can do to calm irritated skin and help strengthen your skin’s protective moisture barrier.
Like everyone, aging skin depends on a variety of factors. The location that wrinkles eventually appear on the face also depends on nationality.
Research has shown that Chinese women typically have more severe wrinkles around the eyes compared with Japanese women, while Thai women tend to have more wrinkling in the lower halves of their faces compared with Chinese women.
Control Oil & Shine
Asian skin is often oily and can be more prone to acne. And with the high humidity of many Asian climates, the problem can worsen.
Asians (particularly those with darker skin like Malaysians and Indians) are also generally more likely to experience post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) or dark spots that linger for weeks or months after acne has healed.
Skin Care Musts for Asian Skin:
Wash morning and night with a cleanser that contains salicylic acid to help remove dead skin cells and keep pores clear.
● Moisturizer with SPF
Follow with a moisturizing SPF lotion packed with antioxidants to guard against both sun and surface free radical damage.
● Repair at Night
In the evening, use a moisturizer with Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) to leave skin glowing by promoting surface skin cell turnover and reducing the look of discoloration.
