Dry & Sensitive Skin

Q: Can DR.WU be used by sensitive skins?

A: Yes! All DR.WU products are allergy tested, meaning they have been clinically tested by a medical research organization under the supervision of dermatologists. DR.WU Clinical Skincare is developed based on such principles: No Additives, No Alcohol, High Concentration of High Grade Actives that are safe and effective, even for use on sensitive skins.

 

Q: Is it necessary to hydrate the skin when indoors?

A: The central air conditioning systems in office buildings generates cold, dry air, which frequently results in seriously dehydrated skin and imperceptibly accelerates skin aging. We therefore recommend to keep a vial of a hydrating and soothing skincare product in the drawer so moisture can be replenished whenever necessary.

 

Q: My skin tends to be dry, rough, flaky, and itchy. How can I solve this issue?

A: Users who experience these issues should focus on hydration and moisture retention. Moisture levels in the stratum corneum can be increased through DR.WU Intensive Hydrating Serum with Hyaluronic Acid or Extra Hydrating Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid. Instant moisture replenishment can be achieved by increasing the use of masks such as Ultimate Hydrating Mask with Hyaluronic Acid. It is also important to drink sufficient amounts of water to keep the skin supple and radiant.

 

Q: How can I select skincare products that ensure excellent hydration results?

A: Moisture replenishment and moisture retention are the two prerequisites for good hydration, increased moisture levels in the skin, and decreased moisture loss. We recommend hydrating products that contain Hyaluronic Acid such as DR.WU Intensive Hydrating Serum with Hyaluronic Acid, which can be combined with Extra Hydrating Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid and Extreme Hydrating Cream with Hyaluronic Acid, which contains oil components to lock in the moisture. Lighter products such as Intensive Hydrating Gel with Hyaluronic Acid should be selected for oily skin to achieve optimal hydration effects.

 

Q: How can I prevent skin dryness and sensitivity during the winter months?

A: Due to temperature and humidity changes when the season turns from fall to winter, sebum secretion decreases, and the moisture retention capability of the skin deteriorates. This may lead to discomfort in sensitive skin and even normal skin. However, sensitive skin is even more affected by subtle changes. Skincare routines should therefore be kept simple and excessive massage and irritation should be avoided.

    The main difference between sensitive and normal skin lies in their moisture retention capabilities. Proper hydration and sun protection are therefore of paramount importance. We recommend use of high-efficacy hydrating and repair components. In addition to our Hyalucomplex Hydrating System, we recommend Intensive Repairing Serum with Squalane, which has an exclusive light oil texture and contains highly concentrated, plant-derived squalene. It quickly permeates the skin without causing acne or a feeling of stuffiness or stickiness.  With the aid of three precious essential oils, the serum thoroughly repairs the skin barrier, improves dryness, fine lines, and coarseness, and restores the plumpness, tenderness, and delicateness of youthful skin.

 

Q: My skin often feels taut during the winter months. Is cleansing the face sufficient for oily skin?

A: Oil secretion decreases during the winter months, which causes the moisture in the epidermis to evaporate and thereby results in dropping moisture levels. We therefore recommend use of high-efficacy hydrating components such as Hyaluronic Acid to increase skin moisture levels. Dr. WU Intensive Hydrating Serum with Hyaluronic Acid or Extra Hydrating Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid, which contains oil components, should be applied as the final step to lock in the moisture and reduce evaporation. Reinforced oil control is not necessary for oily skin during the winter months since lipid secretion is decreased. However, strong emphasis should be placed on hydration as well as facial cleansing. We therefore recommend blending of lotions or creams with a small quantity of Intensive Repairing Serum with Squalane, which has an exclusive light oil texture and contains highly concentrated, plant-derived squalene. It quickly permeates the skin without causing acne or a feeling of stuffiness or stickiness. With the aid of three precious essential oils, the serum thoroughly repairs the skin barrier, improves dryness, fine lines, and coarseness, and restores the plumpness, tenderness, and delicateness of youthful skin.

 

Q: What skincare products are recommended for sensitive (dry, itchy, tingling) skin?

A: Mild cleansing and make-up removal products with soothing effects should be selected for sensitive skin types. Sensitive skin is an indicator for impaired skin barriers and insufficient defensive capabilities. Repair through hydration is therefore of paramount importance.   

We recommend the following sequence: DR. WU Hydrating Gel Cleanser with Hyaluronic Acid→ DR. WU Intensive Hydrating Essence Toner with Hyaluronic Acid→ DR. WU Intensive Hydrating Serum with Hyaluronic Acid→ Hydrating Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid/ Extreme Hydrating Cream with Hyaluronic Acid

 

Q: Although the skin is less oily during season change, my cheeks feel increasingly dry and sensitive. Is there a solution for this?

A: Oil secretion decreases during the winter months, which causes the moisture in the epidermis to evaporate and thereby results in dropping moisture levels. We therefore recommend use of high-efficacy hydrating components such as Hyaluronic Acid to increase skin moisture levels. Dr. WU Intensive Hydrating Serum with Hyaluronic Acid or Extra Hydrating Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid should, which contains oil components, be applied as the final step to lock in the moisture and reduce evaporation. Reinforced oil control is not necessary for oily skin during the winter months since lipid secretion is decreased. However, strong emphasis should be placed on hydration as well as facial cleansing. We therefore recommend blending of lotions or creams with a small quantity of Intensive Repairing Serum with Squalane, which has an exclusive light oil texture and contains highly concentrated, plant-derived squalene. It quickly permeates the skin without causing acne or a feeling of stuffiness or stickiness.  With the aid of three precious essential oils, the serum thoroughly repairs the skin barrier, improves dryness, fine lines, and coarseness, and restores the plumpness, tenderness, and delicateness of youthful skin.

 

Q: How can I tackle constantly emerging skin issues such as dryness and sensitivity during season change?

A: Season change is characterized by dramatic temperature and humidity changes, which tends to cause dryness and sensitivity since the epidermis can’t react fast enough. Use of whitening and oil control products should therefore be discontinued temporarily and strong emphasis should be placed on proper hydration and mild cleansing to prevent further aggravation of skin issues. Fall skincare regimens should be determined in accordance with daily weather and skin conditions. In case of high lipid secretion, summer skincare products should be applied. If the skin feels dry, hydrating products should be added. Constant adjustments help prevent discomfort during season change.

 

Q: What skincare products are recommended for moisturization of sensitive skin without causing oiliness?

A: In addition to hydrating products, we strongly recommend application of a skincare oil with a light texture. Intensive Repairing Serum with Squalane quickly permeates the skin without causing acne or a feeling of stuffiness or stickiness. It repairs the skin barrier and strengthens the resistance of the skin to external stress factors. The use of granular exfoliants must be reduced to avoid excessive irritation.

 

Q: How should I cleanse dry and sensitive skin?

A: We recommend selection of a mild, non-granular facial cleanser or cleansing foam. Extensive rubbing of the face should be avoided, and the product should be rinsed off with warm water. After cleansing, the skin should be patted dry with a towel or tissue. Hydrating Gel Cleanser With Hyaluronic Acid is highly recommended for dry and sensitive skin. This product thoroughly cleanses, calms, and soothes the skin.

 

Q: Allergies are a common phenomenon when users with sensitive skin switch to new products. How can we avoid such negative effects during transition periods?

A: Users with sensitive skin should avoid frequent product switching. It is recommended to look at the ingredients before switching to a new skincare product. Preference should be given to non-irritating products that are free of preservatives.

Cleansing, moisturization, and sun protection represent the three core principles of all skincare routines. You should always conduct a patch test should be conducted before switching to a new product. If reddening or itchiness occurs 24 hours after the patch is applied, the product is not suitable for you. Don’t replace all your products at once. Start by replacing one of your products and observe your skin for 3-5 days. If you don’t experience any discomfort, you can try to replace other products of your routine.

 

Q: I have mixed to oily skin, but the skin on my cheeks is sensitive and reddened. How can I alleviate this problem?

A: We recommend use of products free of preservatives, synthetic fragrances, and alcohol such as our Hyalucomplex Hydrating System to alleviate skin sensitivity and discomfort. Long-term use enhances skin tolerance and restores skin health.

 

Q: How can I alleviate persistent redness and discomfort after a sunbath at the beach?

A: We recommend use of alcohol-free hydrating products which can be applied like a wet mask on the tanned skin. Rescue treatment by applying DR.WU Intensive Hydrating Essence Toner with Hyaluronic Acid (light), which has a light, watery texture, to cotton pads or a mask is the perfect choice. This toner which also contains Vitamin B3 and B5 instantly relieves discomfort after sun exposure. After the aforementioned rescue treatment, a product with simple ingredients such as Extra Hydrating Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid or Extreme Hydrating Cream with Hyaluronic Acid (selected based on individual skin types) must be applied to guarantee full repair and maximum effects.

 

 

Q: Is Mandelic Acid suitable for users who suffer from Seborrheic Dermatitis/Rosacea/Skin Allergies?

A: Users who suffer from these skin conditions should apply medicine and follow their therapy routine as ordered by their physician. After their skin stabilizes, they should try the product on their lower jawline (contour line) and observe their skin for signs of allergic reactions or discomfort.

 

Q: Can I use Mandelic Acid to rejuvenate and renew my skin if I have spider veins or will this lead to skin thinning?

A: Mandelic Acid mainly targets keratin metabolism. We therefore recommend that users with fragile skin barriers or insufficient moisture retention focus on products with hydrating and repair functions such as DR.WU’s Hyalucomplex Hydrating System and Intensive Repairing Serum with Squalane. These products boost skin moisture replenishment, accelerate repair of the skin barrier, and help maintain skin health!

 

Q:  Fair and sensitive skin burns easily and is prone to spots. Is there a solution for this?

A: Fair skin tends to be more fragile and tans and burns easily. Its resistance to UV rays is relatively low. Sun protection measures are therefore an absolute necessity. We recommend non-irritating whitening components such as our Glutalight Intensive Whitening System. Its main ingredient Glutathione, which is patented in Japan, acts in concert with Ascorbyl Glucoside (AA2G), HerbEx Silybum extract, and Vitamin B3, B5, and B6 to achieve simultaneous whitening and hydrating effects. It can be used in the daytime and after surgeries without any concerns. This powerful, all-in-one brightening and whitening treatment is non-irritating and does not cause darkening through hyperpigmentation. It is extremely important to apply sunscreen with a sun protection factor of SPF50 PA+++ or above and wear a jacket or hat or carry a parasol before venturing outdoors to ensure effective blocking of dark spot formation.

 

Q: Can Dr. WU products be applied during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

A: Since all Dr. WU skincare products are free of retinoic acid, they can be used by expectant mothers without any concerns. However, varying physical conditions and worrisome changes in hormones and metabolism which are bound to occur during pregnancy tend to cause skin instability and sensitivity. Pregnant women should therefore consult their gynecologists prior to application of products if they have any concerns or questions.
