THE KUMIKO CHEATSHEET: ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED!

Hi there! I am Cata Aguirre, a cosmetologist and I have been treating skin of all ages and conditions for more than 10 years. For this reason, I want to contribute my experience to answer a list of questions that are frequent from my patients concerning the active principles that make up the KUMIKO anti-aging line. Also, I take this opportunity to tell you how each of the KUMIKO products is used.

Note that any advice comes with the appendix: USE GOOD SUN PROTECTION. You should use sunscreen, especially if you use acids and retinoids. It's a good idea to patch test new products in a hidden area of ​​the skin, such as behind the ear or on the leg, to check for allergies.

I have heard of KUMIKO and I don't know where to start. How do I make the best use of the products?

If you are just starting to take care of your skin and you are not used to a routine of daily creams, I advise you to select one or two products first, and then over time, you add the rest of the line. I suggest you start with the Matcha Perfect Advanced Shield Day Cream and the Matcha Lift Filler Booster serum. Essential products to start any beauty routine. The daytime moisturizer provides all the hydration your skin needs to combat external agents from the environment. However, never forget to drink between 2 to 3 liters of water a day, the perfect complement to maintain the freshness of the skin. On the other hand, the serum is essential, because it is the one that acts at the dermal level, stimulating the fibroblasts to improve the production of collagen and elastin, while the hydration cream acts at the epidermal level, preventing the leakage of the serum.

I have always cared for my skin with specialized products, following a rigorous cleansing and nourishing routine. Now, I would like to try the KUMIKO cream line, because I am a fan of matcha tea and I know about all the health benefits it provides. What are the steps I should follow to use the cream line correctly?

If you have been using skincare creams for a long time, I recommend the following: start with the KUMIKO cleansing; first with the Matcha Luxurious Face Wash make-up remover and then complement with the toner, Matcha Perfectly Radiant Boost. In the morning, continue with the Matcha Lift Filler Booster serum and wait until it penetrates completely, then continue with the Matcha Sculpting Eye Lift eye contour, tapping gently with the fingertips around the area to achieve penetration and stimulate blood supply. Follow with Matcha Perfect Advanced Shield Day Cream with upward movements. At night, repeat the KUMIKO cleansing steps, then apply Matcha Intense Recovery with proteoglycans and wait for its total absorption, continue with the KUMIKO eye contour, and, finally, the Matcha Perfect Skin Refiner Nourishing Night Cream.

I have more than one skin problem, how do I choose which products to use?

Take a look at yourself, what are you trying to achieve with skincare. When you have oily skin, photodamage, and pigmentation, or dry skin, premature aging, but also pigmentation, how can you choose? Fortunately, KUMIKO products have more than one function. For example, the retinoic acid that makes up the night cream focuses on fighting free radicals that cause oxidation of dermal cells, that is, it directly fights skin aging, but it also has lightening effects on the skin and wonderfully regulates oiliness in oily skin. Retinol and retinoids are like silver bullets for the skin: they normalize it and act on aging, pigmentation, and blemishes. Now, let's choose another of the KUMIKO products. If we choose proteoglycans (Matcha Intense Recovery), concentrated vials, we obtain the active proteoglycans, vitamin C, and matcha tea, this powerful mixture is a youth bomb and can be used to treat from oily skin to very dry skin, for both cases, the product will have an unparalleled effect when it comes to creating a natural hydration network because it accelerates the production of hyaluronic acid itself while firming the skin's structure.

There are many indications and benefits for each of the products and when I am going to use them, I am often confused!

Many people write down their regimens or print a spreadsheet to keep things organized. Otherwise, I advise you to label the bottles with a permanent marker to know what the function of each product is. This is especially useful when you are still sleepy after waking up or tired at night, as it is easy to get confused.

I like to use products from different brands in one regimen; I am my alchemist for the care of my own skin. Can KUMIKO products be mixed with other facial care brands?

If your skin is used to changing brands frequently and you haven't had any adverse response, you can do it with KUMIKO and combine with another brand, but always following the order that is indicated for facial care (see answer 2) and try first in some area hidden to rule out any type of allergy. Always remember: If you have doubts about the order in which the products should go on the skin, apply them in order of texture: thin and watery, ending with the thickest and fattiest

I have rosacea, I don't see a regimen that mentions it, what should I use?

KUMIKO products are designed for all skin types and complexions, including conditions such as rosacea. The active ingredients that can cause irritation or act as vasodilators are protected by the vehicle that penetrates directly into the dermis, avoiding any adverse response. I especially recommend Matcha Luxurious Face Wash Cleansing Gel, Lift Filler Booster Serum, Sculpting Eye Lift Contour, and Perfect Advanced Shield Moisturizer.
