1Why do skin flakes appear on the skin after applying makeup?
There are many reasons for causing skin flakes. For example, usually it happened when the skin has poor absorption on skin care products, or when skin is in the period of shedding old dead skin cells. It also occurs when applying skin care products without waiting for the first bottle to be completed absorbed, then apply the next bottle of skin care products right away. The ingredients inside the skin care products will conflict with each other because of the different ingredients and media of different brands of products. ex. different types of whitening ingredients or emulsifiers will cause saponification. Sometimes products containing metal ion such as sunscreen, foundation, etc., if applying after skin care products and excessive rubbing of the skin will cause the ingredients of the skin care products to interact with each other too. ex: The moisture of makeup and sunscreen products with low moisture retention will be absorbed by products with high moisture retention. In this case, there will be flakes on the surface of the skin Solution: Exfoliate regularly. When doing skin care, wait until the skin care products are completely absorbed before proceeding to the next procedure and then gently pat and massage to help absorption. Change the order of maintenance, after the lotion or cream can add toner to isolate the foundation.

4How to focus on the steps of skin care?
The three key points of having beautiful skin: "Cleanliness, Efficacy, Sun Protection" "Cleanliness" If you have makeup on your face, be sure to remove them with makeup removers first, and then clean them with face wash products. The purpose of skin cleansing is to remove unwanted things from the skin, such as dirt, sebum and old dead cuticle cells, makeup products, etc. If the cleansing is done incorrectly, make-up, oil, and dirt will block the pores, and then acne, pimple and even seborrheic dermatitis and other problem skin will continue come. The most suitable cleansing is to remove unwanted things from the skin and properly retaining the skin lipids, so that the skin can still feel fresh, soft and not tight. “Efficacy” After cleaning the skin according to the needs of the skin, choose skin care products such as repair, whitening, acne, anti-wrinkle... Skin health is based on "moisturizing, dry skin and lack of water are often caused by improper beauty or maintenance. Using unsuitable skin care products or cleaning products can cause skin inflammation and allergic reactions, destroying the skin’s ability to moisturize itself. For example, excessive exfoliation, excessive cleansing, long-term sun exposure, using too many complex ingredients in cosmetics... etc. will affect the health of the skin, the stratum corneum will be injured, and the ability of self-regulation will be affected. Over a period of time, the skin's barrier to the external environment change function will slowly lose, and it is prone to dryness and sensitivity, even redness, peeled skin, and tingling. The appearance of the skin will look rough, dull, dry and other problem skins. If the skin is well moisturized, it can not only increase the soft and smooth touch of the skin but also make the skin look bright and transparent. It can strengthen the barrier function of the skin and keratin metabolism can also proceed normally. “Sun Protection” Ultraviolet rays will cause photoaging, thickening and drying the skin keratin, and the growth of fine lines and spots. Sunburn can also cause acute skin inflammation. Therefore, it is recommended to use sunscreen and apply sunscreen to avoid the damage of ultraviolet rays to the skin and prevent aging, sunburn, and skin cancer. So protecting the skin can resist the damage of the external environment.
5Is it skin oily because not moisturizing enough?
The secretion of skin oil comes from the sebaceous glands in the hair follicles. When sebum is secreted outside the skin, it not only acts as a sealing substance but also softens the stratum corneum and reduces water loss. Some people still feel dry despite the large amount of oil secretion, so they clean their skin too often and use cleansing products that are too degreasing. The skin is more prone to feel dry and tight in this situation, the sebum membrane is damaged, resulting in dryness and dehydration, and even the appearance of oily and internal dryness on the skin. Skin that is oily on the outside and dry on the inside means that people with oily skin have a strong secretion of sebaceous glands. After using a cleansing product with too strong degreasing power, the skin's barrier power is reduced, causing the stratum corneum to not retain sufficient moisture, resulting in dry and peeling conditions. Continue to secrete strong sebum, but the stratum corneum is still dry and dehydrated. Sebum secretion is more related to diet and hormones. It is recommended to adjust a light diet and choose mild cleaning products to avoid excessive cleaning. Choose products that can control oil and moisturize.

9How long does it take for skin care products to be effective?
The skin undergoes metabolism every day, and it takes 19 days for a mature basal cell to divide. It takes another 28 days for a mature basal cell to become dander and fall off. So the cycle time for our skin cells to metabolize is 19 days + 28 days for a total of 47 days. Therefore, it takes at least two months to test whether the skin care products are really effective! Because everyone's skin type and skin condition are different, and the metabolism rate is also different. In addition to choosing skin care products that suit you, apply a sufficient amount during daily maintenance to make your skin more stable is important.
