CAN I USE PYK PRODUCTS FOR ANY SKIN TYPE OR CONDITION?

Absolutely! Hydration and balance are the two key skin goals of the brands. So, whether you have oily, combination, dry or sensitive these products aim to bring your skin back into a perfect equilibrium.

Since the brand was developed to help with atopic skin conditions like eczema, all of the products are formulated to be as gentle and as effective as possible, without any added harsh chemicals.

ARE PYK PRODUCTS VEGAN AND CRUELTY FREE?

Yes, they’re all 100% cruelty free. And, apart from the nutrition and intensive creams which contain beeswax, they’re also vegan.

WHAT ARE THE HERO PRODUCTS?

If you’re new to the brand we’re sure you’ll be hooked on these artificial fragrance, dye, colour, and paraben-free beauties once you start using them.

There are many influencer and beauty-editor favourites in the range but the Essence Toner is one to start with.

It’s a true complexion-perfector and is known for revitalizing and reinvigorating skin. Sticking to the brand’s minimalist approach there are only 7 ingredients in the formula, including Milk Vetch Root Extract, a star ingredient chock full of good-for-skin nutrients.

Love a good exfoliation? Pyunkang Yul Peeling Gel. is an absolute must-try. Whether your skin is dry, flaky or blemish-prone, exfoliating is the answer to a healthier-looking complexion and this formula gently whisks away daily dirt and dead skin cells without irritating or aggravating even the most sensitive of skin.

This is all due to betain salicylate, a super gentle exfoliator derived from sugar beets. Together with hydrating allantoin (from comfrey leaves and roots), you’ll get a smoother, softer, more plumped up complexion in minutes.

Redness, tightness, fine lines, breakouts – they’re all symptoms of a compromised skin barrier.

Essentially, when that barrier, the topmost layer of your skin, isn’t functioning properly your skin is a hot mess. Pyunkang Yul’s Cleansing Foam is ideal for strengthening you skin’s barrier. It’s formulated with 16 protecting, nourishing and smoothing ingredients like glyceryl caprylate (from vegetable oils) and Saposhnikovia , a Korean hearb, that are equally as effective at purging dirt and oil from pores as they are at restoring balance to skin.

HOW DO I USE THE PYUNKANG YUL ESSENCE TONER?

As mentioned above, this toner only has 7 ingredients and is a powerhouse when it comes to hydration. It’s also a go-to toner for the 7 skin method which we’ve covered here. Check out the link if you want to learn more about this glow-giving technique.

Even more, the Essence Toner is perfect for daily use. Smooth it on after your cleanser and before your serums and ampoules. Simply apply it to the palm of your hand, rub hands together and gently pat it on your skin until its fully absorbed. Don’t be afraid to double up on the layers!

ANY TIPS FOR APPLYING THE PEELING GEL?

HOW CAN I GET GLOWING SKIN WITH PKY PRODUCTS?

Start with a scoop of the Pyukang Yul Moisture Cream on the palm of your and then add a couple of drops of the Pyunkang Yul Oil. Gently mix the two products with your fingers and apply it to your face and neck.
