No Pinching Your Blemishes!
Your mom is right when she nags ' DO NOT pinch those pimples!' While squeezing may sound like a quick solution to banish your blemishes it actually does the exact opposite, by further irritating and infecting the troubled area.

Formulated with high concentrations of tea tree leaf water, Centella Asiatica, and gentle exfoliants, this serum helps diminish blemishes, remove excess sebum, clear congested pores while moisturising and soothing damaged, irritated skin.
To use this serum, be sure to shake the bottle well to mix the oil and water layer before applying a few drops on your face and patting lightly to promote absorption.
Time to Put an End to those Erupting Skin Problems
When your skin cries out for help after a never-ending breakout, it means that the skin barrier is fragile which means that it has increased sensitivity towards bacteria and external irritants. SOME BY MI AHA, BHA, PHA 30 Days Miracle Cream is your one-stop solution to rebuild skin barrier, calm the skin and retain moisture balance to improve complexion. It is developed using high concentrations of Centella Asiatica, an ingredient well-known for its effective skin healing and soothing abilities; along with tea tree lead extract to help with excess sebum control.
Use the miracle cream as a final step of your skincare routine. Scoop an adequate amount and apply all over your face to seal in the benefits of your other skincare products and protect your skin from external stressors while it takes its time to heal. The soft, bouncy texture of the cream absorbs quickly without stickiness, leaving a cooling sensation on the skin.

Feel the Superpowers of Super Matcha
If there is anything that we can get rid of forever, it will be those pore-clogging blackheads! Would you agree? Blackheads are generally rather difficult to remove and conventional methods include the use of a pore strip, squeezing them or using physical exfoliators. However, these methods are not suitable for everyone especially those with sensitive, delicate skin. In addition, they are just quick, one-off solutions which means that there is a high chance those blackheads will come back (and often bigger, deeper and more annoying than before!)
Say hello to our SOME BY MI Super Matcha line, which is made with high levels of antioxidants from green tea water. Matcha is also rich in tannins to help improve skin texture, tighten enlarged pores and give the skin an overall refined look effortlessly! Enriched with gentle exfoliators like natural BHA as well as calming Centella asiatica, this Korean skincare line regulates sebum, prevents dehydration and redness when applied.
Can you mix and SOME BY MI Super Matcha with the other products? Sure you can! The super matcha line can be used together with the other lines line snail, propolis, yuja or AHA BHA PHA line to give your skin a fresh, mattified and smooth finish.
