Dear Blemishes, if you are going to live on my skin, at least pay rent!
Oily skin can be rather challenging to tackle. Using the wrong products can wreak havoc on your skin and cause breakouts, blemishes or irritation. To start your skincare routine, use a cleanser suitable for your skin type. Who is not familiar with the famous COSRX Low-pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser? There is no surprise that this gentle, non-irritating, refreshing cleanser remains an all time favourite! Its pH level is very similar to our skin's and it contains tea tree extract that helps give its refreshing scent while helping with sebum control.

Supple, Hydrated Skin without All the Editing 💦
For those days when you just want to soak your skin in moisturiser
How is it possible that oily skin can get dehydrated? Good question! Dehydrated skin occurs when the skin lacks water, resulting in dull and uneven complexion, more prominent fine lines and itchy patches. With key ingredients such as Vitamin B5 Panthenol, Centella Asiatica, Allantoin and Hyaluronic Acid, COSRX Hydrium line provides your skin with a burst of hydration while reducing redness and inflammation, as well as calming and soothing red, heated and angry skin. The weightless and watery formula of the Hydrium line makes it ideal to replenish the skin's hydration levels for oily, acne-prone and dehydrated skin.
For best results, use in the following order: Hydrium Watery Toner--> either Hydrium Centella Aqua Soothing Ampoule if you want something lightweight to soothe and calm your skin or Hydrium Triple Hyaluronic Moisture Ampoule if your skin needs extra moisture without being too oily--> Hydrium Green Tea Aqua Soothing Gel Cream.
Apart from the Hydrium line, COSRX Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence and COSRX Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Cream can provide dull, dry, dehydrated skin with softer, smoother and bouncier appearance thanks to hyaluronic acid and sea-buckthorn which help replenish hydration and prevent water and moisture loss from the skin.
