Searching for the types of products her skin desperately needed is what ultimately awakened Tsai’s curiosity as to how products were made, why certain ingredients were chosen, and the complicatedness of product formulation. “Once I started to understand a bit more of the ‘behind the scenes’ of beauty products, I realized I could develop a different type of skincare brand that prioritized the substance of the ingredients and formula more than anything else,” she says.
Another standout feature of the line? The totally doable price points. In fact, the idea that skincare has to be expensive in order to be effective is a huge myth in Tsai’s eyes. “I’m so grateful to see so many brands like Cocokind proving you actually don’t need to spend $80 to cleanse your skin or to see results from a powerful serum,” she says. “I realize it can be hard to judge a product by its packaging and price, but just know that you can find amazing skincare at every price point—truly!”
A few other hot tips from Tsai when it comes to having the best skin of your life: prioritizing sleep, infusing your routine with polypeptides, and instilling a less-is-more approach when it comes to highly active ingredients.
“I notice a huge difference with how supple and hydrated my skin is when I’m not getting enough sleep,” Tsai shares. “I think it’s a hugely underrated component of our overall health and mental well-being.” As far as polypeptides—they’re an all-star ingredient you’re likely neglecting but totally shouldn’t be. “I’m a huge fan of polypeptides, especially as someone in my 30s,” she says. “Polypeptides help stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production, which then helps reduce the look of fine lines. This is my primary skincare concern these days, so using polypeptides is a critical step! I also love the philopsophy ‘a little bit often.’ I don’t do super-high percentages of active ingredients because I don’t want to have to overthink my skincare—I want to use AHAs, BHAs, and retinoids at a lower percentage but regularly.”
