What is the Skin Diet?

Posted on by Ersin Koseoglu

New trend from Asia: Skin Diet

What is this skin diet?

Contrary to the Korean skin care routine, which consists of 10-12 steps, skin care in the skin diet is done using a minimum number of products.

How is it done?

It is to minimize your skin care routine for a certain period of time with only the basic steps of cleansing, exfoliation, moisturizing and sunscreen.

It is a skin care that fits well with the minimalist trend. It also forms the basis of sustainability, which encourages less consumption.

Who is it suitable for?

It is a suitable method especially for people with sensitive skin type or people with easily reddened skin types. It has emerged with the thought that since the skin will not be exposed to too much content in skin care using minimum product, sensitivity or redness may not occur.

What should be considered in product selection before starting the skin diet?

Since maximum effect is desired with minimum product, the cleaning gel applied as the first step should have a gentle formula. It should not contain SLS, SLES, Essence, Ethyl alcohol, dye etc. Cyrène Clinical AHA/BHA Exfoliating Gentle Cleansing Gel contains both AHA and BHA. Thanks to this feature, it has a very light exfoliation mechanism. It also helps to remove dead tissue on the skin surface along with impurities. Its smell and color come entirely from the plant extracts it contains.

After the cleansing step, the skin should be cleansed of dead tissue regularly with an exfoliant suitable for the skin type. Skin type should be considered when choosing an exfoliant. While the skin with dryness, acne scars, dullness and blemish concerns prefer AHA exfoliants, people with oiliness, acne and blackhead concerns should turn to BHA exfoliants. Exfoliants containing both (both AHA and BHA) may also be preferred.

Daily Skin Smoothing & Renewing Treatment 4% AHA Exfoliant , The exfoliant is specially formulated for daily use and is gentle. Since it has a balanced pH and is buffered, it is suitable for daily use without causing irritation and without damaging the skin. In order to get effective results, after using it for a certain period of time (2-3 weeks) and getting used to the skin exfoliation process, especially in the concerns of stains and acne scars, 10% or 15% AHA exfoliants should also be used on a weekly basis.

Skin Renewing 2% BHA Serum, Thanks to the Salicylic Acid in its content, it helps to tighten the pores and get rid of blackheads by exfoliating the skin surface and inside the pores with regular and daily use. With its collagen production triggering and anti-inflammatory properties, it calms the redness of the skin by providing a smooth and soft appearance to the skin surface.

As a moisturizer, moisturizers with probiotic content can be a savior.

It provides support to the skin during the skin's repair and regeneration process. It provides a healthy, moisture-saturated, silky and protected skin against free radical damage. It does not contain essences, petroleum derivatives, dyestuffs and parabens.

The last step in day care should be sunscreen. Sunscreen specially formulated for sensitive skin should be used as sunscreen. These sunscreens are formulated with a 100% mineral sunscreen. They do not contain ingredients that react with the skin and cause allergies/sensitivity, such as chemical sunscreens, essences, ethyl alcohol, petroleum derivatives.
