As someone that’s always had sensitive skin, I’ve always been particularly finicky on the ingredients of in my skincare and makeup products. Recently I came across another new obstacle when nit-picking over my skincare routine—pregnancy. Don’t get me wrong, being pregnant has been such a life changing, intimate, and exciting experience that no words can fully describe. However, I now have the added stress of my everyday intake including the food I eat, the air around me, and the ingredients being absorbed into my skin. With many ingredients including prescription grade and day-to-day skincare have high skin absorbency, many acne treating, anti-aging, and exfoliating skincare products need to be avoided during pregnancy.
Shortly after trying 23.5 °N’s range of skincare products that focuses on minimal and simple ingredients, I was immediately hooked. With all its ingredients being natural and additive-free, I can rest assure that nothing being absorbed into the skin will harm the little baby, and that it won’t irritate my now hormone-raging reactive skin. My daily routine consists of 23.5 °N’s Rice Soothing Active+ Essence, Rice Soothing Active+ Moisturizer (during hot summer weathers), Bamboo Ultra Hydrating Cream (during dry winter weathers), as well as Rice Soothing Gel Mask during my last step of my routine as an additional layer to replace my previous sleeping masks.
Rice Soothing Series:
Rice ferment filtrate plays a key role in this product range, keeping your skin moisturized and nourished while it calms and brightens irritated, dull and fatigue skin. The Rice Soothing series is works for all skin types but is especially ideal for acne-prone, stressed, highly reactive and sensitive skin types.
Bamboo Ultra Hydrating Series:
Bamboo leaf extract nourishes and moisturizes the skin without leaving any feeling of heaviness or greasiness while strengthening the skin's elasticity. Ideal for all skin types, the Bamboo Ultra Hydrating series helps fortify your skin's moisture barrier and elasticity as it instantly quenches dehydrated and dry skin.
Aside from certain regions in China, Taiwan is one of two countries at 23.5 °N latitude receiving direct sunlight. Taiwan’s unique geographical location is its reason for its rich selections of crops, flowers, fruits, and vegetables. With nutrition in mind, 23.5 °N is particularly meticulous about using plants free of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
