SOS Regimen with Pyunkang Yul’s Acne Set – THE YESSTYLIST – Asian Fashion Blog – Beauty Article

<!– — I’ve had my eyes on Pyunkang Yul ever since I learned how few ingredients its Essence Toner contains. Always biased towards clean beauty and recently suffering from severe blemishes, I decided to try its acne set comprising a cleanser, toner, cream, spot cream, spot patches and mask pack. The non-foaming gel cleanser is scentless and colorless. Even though I happily anticipated this, I still find it a bit odd to apply something that produces no particular sensation or…

Dr. Althea: Preparing Skin for Fall – THE YESSTYLIST – Asian Fashion Blog – Beauty Article

<!– — As the end of the season approaches, our skin finds it tough to adjust to the changing weather, so some extra care is needed. There’s still a while before the dryness of winter starts taking a toll, but it’s better to act early in the fall to prevent chapped skin rather than cry over it later.

SIORIS: Vegan Skin Care Routine for Dry and Sensitive Skin – THE YESSTYLIST – Asian Fashion Blog – Beauty Article

<!– — A year ago, I was neither conscious nor cautious about picking up new beauty products to try. Ever since early spring, when I had quite a bad eczema flare up, I’ve learned that being educated in the products we choose to coat our faces with is exceptionally important.
