YEHWADAM- Brighten Your Skin the Korean Traditional Way

Hey guys! Am back today to share about this new skincare range that I've been trying out for the last month. Korean skincare products have been making waves in the beauty scene especially of the recent years, and it's all for good reasons!

Introducing to you guys the YEHWADAM Pure Brightening anti-ageing skincare line by THE FACE SHOP, which is specially developed to reveal skin's brightness and radiance by improving the appearance of pigmentations, dark spots, and dull skin tone.

To be honest, my skin has been suffering from uneven skin tone due to hormonal changes the past few months ever since I started conceiving! Many a times without the use of makeup, my skin will be visibly dull, with red patches on parts of my face especially around the t-zone and mouth area. I tried googling up on why my skin has become this way, and it's mostly due to the fact that there's a LOT of hormonal changes in my body which explains how my skin is going haywire too.

So I thought since it's due to the hormones, there's nothing much that I can actually do! It's not until I started trying this skin brightening range that I started seeing slight improvements on my skin tone, where the reds are slowly fading and my skin tone looks overall more even. So as much as many a times our skin acts up due to internal changes like hormonal changes, using the right products to target on our pigments specifically would help!

And one of the most precious things about this YEHWADAM Pure Brightening skin care range is that it is formulated using Korean traditional herbs using the 'Chill-baek-seol-yun-dan' method, with 7 different traditional herbs harvested in Korean soil that are processed using the 'baek-ja' method (where ingredients are heated for a long period of time in pure water to maximize the effectiveness of the products, and also to eliminate toxins in the extraction process.

The YEHWADAM Pure Brightening skin care range is packaged in these beautiful glass bottles, and comes in a complete set of Toner, Serum, Emulsion and Cream. Today I'll be sharing on just the Toner, Serum and Emulsion. Let's begin!

1. YEHWADAM Pure Brightening Toner, 155ml (RM149.90)

Look at it flow! 💧

This brightening and anti-ageing toner is light yet thick enough to be applied onto skin with just the hands or if you prefer, with cotton pads too! As rich as the texture is, it is pretty easy to be absorbed into the skin, and to me that's important cos we've got to time to wait for it to dry up cos we have 2 more skin care steps to go!

If you're applying the toner with your hands, I recommend pressing the toner right into the palm of your hands, and apply straight to your face evenly. What I like to do is to tap tap my skin to let the toner absorb faster!

2. YEHWADAM Pure Brightening Serum, 45ml (RM239.90)

After applying the toner and making sure that it's evenly and fully absorbed into skin, it's time to apply the next product which is the brightening serum! The texture of the serum is pretty rich in itself, so just a small pea-sized squeeze is enough for the whole face!

If you're wondering what's the use of serums and why the need for serum when there is already moisturizer, here's an excerpt from the Internet that I found which explains perfectly:

"Serum is a skincare product you can apply to your skin after cleansing but before moisturizing with the intent of delivering powerful ingredients directly into the skin. Serum is particularly suited to this task because it is made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. This makes them a great tool for targeting specific skincare concerns, like wrinkles." 

- Into The Gloss.

So there you go! I used to wonder why we need so many steps in skincare, and why the need for serums if I'm going to use moisturizer after anyway. But after being a user of serums myself for these past few years, I do see and feel the difference! Serums are not just for moisturizing but to specifically seal in certain ingredients into your skin, BEFORE you moisturize which is to primarily hydrate the skin. Serums can do a lot more than just hydrate and moisturize!

For serums and moisturizers, I like to press the product onto the top of my hand instead of my palm because I only want to use my fingers to apply the product onto my face, and not my entire palm if that makes sense hahahah. Massage gently onto skin, and then you're ready for the next step!

3. YEHWADAM Pure Brightening Emulsion, 140ml (RM149.90)

The third step is to MOISTURIZE! As much as toner and serum are important, moisturizing is just as important a step to ensure that our skin is properly hydrated. Being in air-conditioned spaces and rooms almost all the time (car, office, malls, bedroom, etc), it's easy for our skin to dry up without us even realizing until it's too late.

I used to not like applying moisturizers because the ones I used were pretty thick in nature and that made my skin feel sticky and uncomfortable all day. So for many years in my early twenties (yeap, I'm in the last of my late twenties now sob sob), I only used cleanser and toner. And that's it. I know, unbelievable. I liked how my skin remained dry and smooth and pride myself in the fact that I did not need any moisturizers. 

It wasn't until my skin started becoming very oily that even makeup foundations could not sit properly after a few hours and would start to discolour and melt.

I went to a few dermatologists and did some skin test, and found that while I thought I had oily skin because I had an oily skin combination, I actually had DRY skin which explained why my skin felt it needed to generate more oil to combat the dryness!

I got a big shock to say the least. Since then I've been diligently moisturizing and hydrating my skin, and things became normal and better again. So yes, learn from my silly mistake and don't skip any step in skin care! If you don't like the sticky feeling on your face, opt for lighter moisturizers in the market like this one that I'm using!

The YEHWADAM Pure Brightening Emulsion has a slightly lighter and watery texture as compared to the serum which is richer and thicker in nature. So a little pump can be used for the whole face! In the above photos I could even apply the moisturizer all the way from my hand to my arm!

After the emulsion/moisturizer, you can carry on with any other skin care product of your choice but do make sure that you end your skincare regime with sunscreen!

These days the products I use all have anti-ageing ingredients, and I can't emphasize enough just how important it is to take care of our skin by prevention instead of finding treatments when things go bad. The older we grow, the more we would need to invest in our health- diet, fitness, and skin care are some of the things that would treat you well in return if you take good care of them now!

You can purchase the YEHWADAM Pure Brightening skin care range from any of THE FACE SHOP outlets or on their website HERE, which carries many Korean skin care and beauty products!

That's all from me today. 
Thanks for reading and 'til the next post!

Love, Careen
