The Skincare Multitasker You Need To Try!

Sensitivities, redness, irritations - all terrible words that make the skin tighten in horrible anticipation. Having a complexion that’s prone to sensitivity can be a pain, especially when you’re trying to look and feel your best. Althea Collection’s Waterful Bamboo Pads have been our favorite way to combat irritations during this season, and here’s how you can use them to their fullest potential!

What's The Beauty Acid?

Let's talk about acids today

“Acid” becomes all the rage skincare beauty word. It is the go-to word to search for your beauty needs for whatever skin problems you have.

One "Holy Grail" of anti-aging ingredient is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid has the structure of acid but it is not an exfoliating acid.

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin using a chemical, granular substance, or exfoliation tool.

Why Hyaluronic Acid should be in your skincare routine?

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist.  It is really a good ingredient to have in your skincare products for every skin type.  Hydration and moisturize skin is much healthier and reduce other skin problems.  After all, skin ability to heal becomes slower than snail if your skin is dry along with sort of other problems such as wrinkles or fine lines appearing before you are even 40.

There are 3 types of hyaluronic acid
  1. hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid
  2. sodium acetylated hyaluronate
  3. sodium hyaluronate

You don’t need all three to appear in all your skincare products.  I prefer sodium hyaluronate though.  Hyaluronic acid in your skincare will make sure that the products are not drying for your skin.

Here are some product recommendations for all skin types.

If thick moisturizer is not your thing but you do not want to leave your skin feeling like a desert, then how about this famous slight viscosity toner that does not contain any essential oil and it fragrance-free to moisturize your skin. The hyaluronic acid inside this toner just makes your skin hydrated without the heavy feeling of thick cream.

The most popular HG even among beauty influencers. It contains 96% snail mucin extract and hyaluronic acid that moisturizes the skin, repair and improving elasticity from within. It is made for sensitive skin

This is the Korean version of the famous hyaluronic acid in the form of ampoule that contains all the 3 types of hyaluronic acid which is just perfect for your dry skin. It can penetrate deep into the layers of the skin to plump them up. It also contains panthenol and arginine for a protective moisture barrier.

Here comes light, non-greasy texture moisturizer that contains an orchid extract that grows in Jeju Island, a place so rich in volcanic soil.  Combined with hyaluronic acid and squalane, powerful anti-aging that keeps your skin firmness and elasticity.

Never go out of the house without wearing sunscreen to prevent skin damage.  This sunscreen smells like a bed of roses.  With hyaluronic acid inside this sunscreen, this is a no white cast sunscreen that also hydrate your skin while protecting your skin from the harmful rays.

Physical and Chemical SPF: What's the diff?

The sun is no laughing matter, especially when it comes to our skin’s health! Time and time again, we hear about how harshly the sun can damage our skin, and that the best way to prevent that from happening is by applying on sunscreen. Did you know that sun protection comes in two different types? Here’s the low down on all you need to know, plus how to choose a good sunblock for you!

Korean 10-Step Skincare Routine

Korean 10 Step Beauty

It’s no secret that Korean women have found the key to amazingly gorgeous skin. The real secret is in the famous “million step” skincare regime they religiously follow. Wholesome and skin-nourishing, this near-mythical routine can have anywhere between 10-17 steps, and (with constant use) improves your skin tone, colour and texture, leaving you with an almost translucent, luminous, youthful glow. While this approach might seem excessive to some, it follows a very simple core idea of what your skin needs: hydration, hydration and hydration! This ensures that it stays plump, bright and radiant, reminiscent of your favorite K-pop stars and actors alike.

Whipping Your Skin Into Shape!

Remember when mom would tell us to drink up our milk so we’ll grow big and strong? What if we told you that milk was more than just good for your bones? Milk has been used by the rich, famous and affluent as a form of skincare for centuries. In modern times, living with pollution can wreak havoc on the skin, and using milk to treat the skin with some TLC is always a good idea. That’s where Althea comes in with the Milk Peel Cream Mask, a skin-pampering product that offers soft, clean skin that’s radiant and healthy!

Save Your Skin From The Sun!

Our skin has one mortal enemy: the sun! Sure, it gives us light and warmth, but overexposure to its rays is never a good thing. Think of all the damage it can cause to your complexion! It produces ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB) that dehydrate and cause damage to the skin cells, leading to irritation, pigmentation and premature aging. It could even lead to skin cancer! Here’s what to look out for, and how to beat the hot, sunny rays!
