Oh + August Skincare was created by Korean adoptee Lynn Mueller in 2018. Struggling with sensitive skin and grade 3 acne for much of her life, exacerbated by her outdoor pursuits as a competitive equestrian, Lynn finally found peace when she discovered Korean skincare products during a two-year period living in Seoul. The Korean skincare philosophy centers on nourishing one's skin with both clinical and natural ingredients. When one's skin is a beautiful canvas, confidence soars and anything can be conquered.
Lynn continued mixing and trying different products from a variety of origins. Oh + August Skincare is the result - just like the Korean mixed rice and vegetable dish “Oh + August” that is consumed today, both in traditional and more modern variations.
Oh + August Skincare is an innovative skincare line combining the best of Korean technology and science. Created by a competitive equestrian to turn back time.
Oh + August Skincare understands the special needs of those who are constantly outdoors in the face of harsh environmental factors. As an equestrian herself, competing in show jumping, Lynn understands and experiences daily the beating that skin takes from harsh sun, driving winds, freezing snow, and dust. Oh + August products are made by an equestrian, for equestrians.
Of course, skin can be damaged by simply being exposed to the sun during a short drive in the car. The Oh + August Skincare line is for anyone who wants to reset their skin, turn back time, and heal daily damage.
With its combination of both powerful yet soothing botanicals and the best of modern dermatological science, Oh + August is specifically formulated for even the most sensitive, damaged, or acneic skin. Our products can quiet angry skin, reset the dermis, and turn back time.
