The summer season is almost over and the rainy season’s officially making its way into our midst. As the scorching heat transitions into windy rains, have you ever noticed that your skin appears a little less radiant and breakouts (oh, breakouts) begin to appear? Your skin becomes a little more dry and/or irritated due to harsh winds and to the change in temperature.
As the seasons change, your skincare routine must change as well. Why? Your summer skincare routine probably focused on lightweight toners, serums, and moisturizers. However, during the rainy season, when the winds are harsh and the temperature is colder, the same toner, serum, and moisturizer certainly won’t give the necessary hydration and moisture your skin needs — leaving it dry and dull.
But fret not! We’re here to recommend products that will maintain your chok-chok complexion in this rainy weather.
J.One Jelly Cleanser
The J.One Jelly Cleanser is a low pH cleanser that deeply cleanses the skin using a blend of propolis, royal jelly, and honey extracts. Aside from being packed with antioxidants, these bee ingredients make sure that your skin is NEVER stripped dry after cleansing. It does quite the opposite, in fact — it nourishes and moisturizes the skin, leaving it brightened and soft.
Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil
It’s time to welcome the Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil with open arms! Not only does this product gently yet effortlessly removes makeup (yes, even that stubborn eyeliner and lipstick!), it also moisturizes and nourishes your skin with black bean seed oil, black sesame oil, and black currant seed oil.
Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner
The Klairs Supple Preparation Toner balances the skin’s pH levels to improve overall skin health. This bestseller is infused with phyto-oligo and wheat amino acids that hydrate and calm the skin like no other, leaving the skin bouncy and radiant. Furthermore, its lightweight and ultra-hydrating formulation lends itself well to the 7-skin method (wherein you use your toner for 7 times). With multiple awards all over the world, there’s no doubt that the Klairs Supple Preparation Toner is one of the best (if not the best) out there.
Pyunkang Yul Mist Toner
Your skin is in a more fragile state when exposed to colder and drier temperatures. To keep the skin happy and hydrated throughout the day, take a mist along with you! The Pyunkang Yul Mist Toner is a great pick. It’s formulated with 91.9% coptis japonica root extract that soothes and hydrates the skin. It comes in a travel-friendly size (100 ml), so you can take this everywhere with you. Just take it out of your bag and spray yourself with it whenever your skin needs that extra boost of moisture.
By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water
Fast becoming a bestseller, the By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water removes pore-clogging debris and dead skin cells using 5% mandelic acid. Mandelic acid, a kind of AHA that is extracted from bitter almonds, is less irritating than your regular AHA because of its larger molecular size. Plus, the product’s excellent formulation makes sure that skin is still hydrated and moisturized with its inclusion panthenol, beta-glucan, and sodium hyaluronate. With the By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water, you can prevent fine lines and wrinkles, fade pigmentation, and improve skin texture — all without drying out your skin.
Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish
Dry and flaky skin is one of the most common skin concerns during the rainy season. The best way to prevent it is by exfoliating at least 2-3 times a week! If you prefer physical exfoliation, the Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish is your pick! It helps slough away dead skin cells, making skin baby-butt smooth with its black sugar properties. Oh, and have we mentioned it melts away stubborn blackheads while drawing out the excess sebum?
MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence Intensive Moist
A popular dupe for the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, the MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence Intensive Moist contains properties that provide optimal moisture levels for the skin. A whopping 80% of this essence is fermented yeast extract, which helps to hydrate, balance, and firm the look of skin. Purple barley, an antioxidant, serves to amp up moisture even further, making the skin chok-chok. Last but not the least, it brightens and clears the skin — with this, you’ll surely still look fresh and radiant in contrast to the rainy weather.
Hanskin Hyaluron Skin Essence
If you have oily and/or dehydrated skin, this product is your savior. Its water-like formulation is enriched with hyaluronic acid and hydrolyzed collagen, which makes the skin plump and dewy with moisture and hydration. It’s a great anti-aging product as well, since hyaluronic acid helps tighten and firm the skin to maintain a youthful appearance.
Leegeehaam Vita Propolis Ampoule
The Leegeehaam Vita Propolis Ampoule is infused with 50% propolis extract and 20% of vitamins that brighten and revitalize the skin. Plus, it minimizes the appearance of pores all while helping soothe and moisturize the skin, giving you a radiant glow despite the dull weather!
Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream
The Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream is formulated with beta-glucan, jojoba oil, and ceramides that strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier. It provides immediate and long-lasting moisture especially to those who have dry and sensitive skin. Oily skin types can use this too, just squeeze out a tiny amount.
Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream
Putting extra care on the skin around your eyes is a must! The Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream is a rich cream packed with Jeju orchid extract, an ingredient with antioxidants that help fight free radicals. It delays the development of wrinkles and fine lines while moisturizing the skin around eyes, maintaining a youthful appearance. It plumps like a champ, eventually erasing fine lines.
Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack
Sheet masks are life, so go ahead and spoil yourself with one (or ten!). The Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack is one of our favorites because it contains both snail extract and bee venom! Both ingredients soothe the skin and assist in wound healing, so we like using this mask whenever breakouts occur. It boosts the skin’s moisture levels as well, making it a perfect weapon to combat against the rainy season!
Stay dry, but keep yourself hydrated and moisturized!
