It’s a well-known fact that Koreans love their beauty routines. And it pays off! Whether young or old, man or woman, their skin always looks flawless and glowing – all due to the fact that they spend a considerable amount of time on various beauty products. But it’s not only about BB-creams and awesome concealers (although Korean cosmetics are pretty amazing), it’s also about proper diet, antioxidants, and natural beauty hacks. Here are 8 Korean beauty secrets every girl should know.
If you think that cleaning your face once is enough – you’re totally wrong! One skin-cleansing procedure should consist of two, sometimes three steps. First Korean beauticians recommend using a cleansing tissue to remove the first layer of impurities. It’s gentle and doesn’t require using water. Next, use an oil-cleansing product to remove sunscreen, makeup, and other oily impurities. Then, when your face is wet, apply a cleansing foam for a stronger effect – it will thoroughly cleanse your pores.
Koreans are really big on face massages – you can find one at any beauty parlour as it is just as popular as doing a manicure. You can do a facial massage at home after a hot shower – use circular and tapping motions to work on your forehead, cheekbones, jaw, and cheeks. It greatly improves blood circulation and keeps your skin healthy, adding a beautiful dewy glow.
Korean women know a thing or two about the damage sun can cause to our skin. Their skin is incredibly gentle and pigmentation can occur quite often. That’s why no Korean girl or woman leaves the house without applying some UV cream. The stronger, the better! They also use gloves, wide hats, and even umbrellas for protection.
