Hello! My name is Sara. When I am not working, you can find me looking for new skincare products, listening to some k-pop, reading a good book, or watching some dramas. My love of K-dramas (and realization that everyone in them had beautiful, glowy skin) opened my eyes to the world of K-beauty, which lead to an interest in all of Asian Beauty. Since then, I have never looked back!
Skin Type: Oily, Acne-Prone Skin
- Closed comedones
- Highly visable sebaceous filaments
- Acne scars
When I was child I was very carefree about my skin and never even made the effort to wear sunscreen. However, when I turned 14 and started to suffer from acne. My skin became extremely oily and I had mild inflammatory acne that consisted of many closed comedones, as well as the occasional cystic acne. I tried everything to get rid of my acne, from various kinds of drugstore treatments to a dermatologist who prescribed me many antibiotics and harsh topicals, but my acne continued to persist. After 7 years of struggling with my skin troubles I became desperate to find a solution and the answer to my acne problems presented itself when I discovered Korean skincare, introduced to me by Charlotte Cho’s “Little Book of Skincare.” I was finally able to create a skincare routine that fit my unique skin troubles and my skin has showed vast improvements since.
