Blackheads, blemishes or wrinkles? Understand your skin needs

Posted by Keilla Kalli on

Dermatologists classify skin into four types: oily, dry, combination and normal. These definitions are linked to the characteristics of your skin, which can be natural or influenced by external factors. Knowing your skin type is the first step, before starting a skin care routine, as from there, you will be able to choose the appropriate products. If you still have questions, you can consult our article How to know your skin type .

Furthermore, genetics and your habits can lead to the appearance of blackheads, acne, blemishes and wrinkles, making your skin need “extra care”, which we call treatment. We can call these eventualities “skin conditions”, that is, a momentary state in which your skin presents adverse characteristics. We will help you identify the particularities and needs of your skin, indicating specific products to treat and prevent these problems, ensuring that your skin is always healthy.

In search of perfect skin!

"Baby skin", "peach skin", "glass skin", there are several names we give to the skin that everyone dreams of: soft, smooth, uniform, blemish-free and radiant. But in reality it is very difficult to find someone with this skin, who is not in the habit of investing in a care routine. Korean skincare is known for paying attention to all the details that can influence the appearance of the skin, which is why the Korean routine is full of products with selected ingredients. and formulas developed to hydrate, nourish, repair and treat, at all stages, whatever the need.

Skin Type x Skin Conditions

You have a skin type, but you may have one or more needs (skin conditions). For example, if your skin is oily, you are more prone to acne. If your skin is dry, it is more likely to develop wrinkles early, which requires extra attention and care. Despite this, these problems can appear on any skin type, because they are also linked to external factors. So it's possible that you have dry skin, but also have acne and blemishes. The important thing is to make a list of these problems and add products and treatments that will bring benefits to your skin.

“Just assume that I’m the problem!”

The “top 4” most common problems we see are: acne (pimples and blackheads), blemishes, wrinkles and sensitivity. All of them can be treated (which will solve or control the problem) or even prevented. 



According to the Brazilian Society of Dermatology, acne is a skin condition characterized by the appearance of pimples and blackheads. This happens when hair follicles are clogged, usually due to a build-up of sebum (oil) or dead cells. The sebaceous glands go through a process of infection or inflammation, causing the pores to become full, forming blackheads or releasing their material into the skin, generating pimples. This skin condition is very common in adolescence, but may be related to the menstrual cycle, stress, etc.

The best way to prevent this is by properly cleaning your skin. Double cleansing is a great method, as it eliminates all types of harmful residues on the skin using two types of cleansers: an oil cleanser, followed by a water cleanser. 

Hanskin's Cleansing Oil & Blackhead BHA is ideal for oily skin because it contains agents derived from plants and BHA, which controls excess sebum and removes blackheads. The cleansing water Wonder Pore Deep Foaming Cleanser from Etude House , which has peppermint extract, responsible for minimizing pores and combating skin oil.



There are also treatments for acne such as our favorite AC Clean Up O Pink Powder Spot from Etude House , which contains tea tree essential oil with pink calamine which has an antibacterial effect, reducing inflammation, calamine and clay, which clean excess oil and tallow.



Skin spots, or melasma, are pigmented marks that appear on the skin, and can have different colors. They are usually related to the use of contraceptives, pregnancy and especially exposure to sunlight. That's why it's essential to use sunscreen in your self-care routine. Some stains are temporary and can be eliminated with treatment, others can be permanent. Some can be serious, so it is always recommended to see a dermatologist. Regardless of the type and size of the stain, they are usually very bothersome, especially when they appear on the face. 


Innisfree's B rightening Pore Spot Treatment is a treatment for blemishes due to its active ingredients such as Hallabong bark extract, vitamins (B3, C, B5) and hyaluronic acid, which whiten, hydrate and promote elasticity.


When the skin is in a sensitive state, the skin barrier is weakened and weakened. Sensitized skin can lead to various irritations such as red spots, discomfort, burning, peeling, itching, tightness and even wounds. Generally, dry skin is more susceptible to sensitivity, but this condition can appear on all skin types, including oily skin. Typically factors such as temperature changes, wind, sun exposure, hot water, etc. That's why it's important that you pay close attention to the products you use if you're facing this problem, as if they're not appropriate they can worsen the damage!

Masks with anti-irritating and anti-inflammatory properties can bring a good result and help balance the dermis and offer a feeling of comfort, such as Laneige's Cica Sleeping Mask , a night mask that effectively reinforces the barrier and helps to recover the skin during sleep.


It is also important to choose products with gentle ingredients at all stages of the routine, such as Missha's Super Off Cleansing Oil (Dust Off) , which has a gentle formula with natural oils and Mamonde's Chamolile Pure Toner , which contains only essential and soothing, ideal for sensitive skin.


You will get older and wrinkles will appear, it's true! But did you know that it is possible to delay the appearance and reduce wrinkles without having to resort to aesthetic treatments? Wrinkles appear because the skin loses elasticity as we age. Normally, from the age of 25 we begin to experience a lack of collagen (1% per year), elastin and hyaluronic acid, in addition to the stress caused by exposure to sunlight throughout life. That's why treatments with products rich in these components are effective in combating wrinkles, as they will replace the levels that the skin can no longer produce naturally.

perfect-renew-kit-5-items Laneige's Perfect Rene Kit was developed with Skin RebirthTM technology, which nourishes, vitalizes and strengthens the dermis, leaving the skin looking young and wrinkle-free.

Prevention is the best medicine!

If you have identified one or some of these states, it is a sign that your skin is asking for help. Therefore, it is recommended that you start treatment as soon as possible. The sooner you start treating it, the more likely you are to overcome the problem and have healthy skin inside and out. If your skin does not present any of these skin conditions, but you are already over 25 years old, it is a good idea to start a self-care routine, especially replacing nutrients that your skin begins to lose at that age.
