Korean women are famous across the world for their skin because their skin is radiant, blemish-free and even-toned and that’s nothing short of perfection.
For them, skincare is not just about focusing on the right beauty products but also doing the right things. To ensure that skin stays youthful and healthy, Korean’s use many skincare products which can be used by Indians as well.
So without wasting much time let’s first go through what’s Korean skincare all about and what kind of Korean Products Indian can use.
Which products to use:
Compared to Indian Skincare, Korean Skincare products are much milder and can be used by women with sensitive skin while in India most such products contain artificial colors, fragrance, harsh chemicals or parabens.
And the biggest part of Korean skincare is that they prevent their skin from getting damage since the beginning, instead of waiting until the issue pops.
Unlike we Indians, Koreans are much more aware of the harm that UV rays inflict on their skin which is why they use sunscreen regularly.
Doesn’t matter how tired they are, Korean women never go to bed without removing every trace of dirt and makeup from their faces which actually tends to make your skin better.
One of a kind ingredients is the USP of Korean beauty products. Ground-breaking ingredients such as snail mucin, snail mucus, donkey milk, and bee venom are the hero elements of Korean skincare products.
Korean products are more water-based, which helps in keeping even the Indian skin clear and glowing and there are many such products which suit all skin types.
As per Korean skincare, the key to flawless skin in your 30s is a good skincare routine in your 20s. Hence, an anti-aging skincare routine starts young.
The new aging skincare ritual
Here are the top skin concerns tackled by the Korean skincare routine so that Indian skin also looks its best.
Cleansing is indispensable to every woman as it encourages the skin to breathe and restores itself. So on the days when you are not wearing a lot of makeup, just go for a foam cleanser. These have a soft creamy consistency and it’s foaming property flushes out impurities and excess oils. It’s a pretty safe choice for sensitive as it helps in removing makeup without irritating skin.
Korean skincare advocate recommends two products for the daily cleansing routine. First one is an oil-based cleanser and the second one is water-based, foaming cleanser. With deep-cleansing there is no chance against wonder pollution, dust, and grime.
A squeaky-clean face is the result of a double cleanse
On the days when your skin looks dull and lifeless, and you feel like improving your skin tone. Then add an exfoliator to your night time regime and it’ll do the right trick for you. Because it gently buffs away dead skin cells and purifies open pores, leaving your skin soft and supple.
You can use exfoliate like the Face shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Scrub or Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Scrub Foam. And try to make it a point to exfoliate twice a day for even better results as this helps to absorb skincare products better.
After cleansing, toners hold a very special place in every skincare regime as they help in balancing out the skin’s pH levels. Actually,h the antioxidants and hyaluronic acid present in the toner hydrates parched skin and prep it up, leaving it nice and tight. These whitening and brightening skin toners are one of the advanced products that are designed to even out skin tone and address hyperactive pigmentation due to the overproduction of melanin in damaged areas of the skin.
Generally, you can use LANEIGE White Dew Tone-Up Cream, but for extremely dry skin you can opt for products that force-feed moisture into the skin like Jeju Pomegranate Revitalizing Skin Toner by Innisfree.
Now the next thing you can use is a Serum. Serums are specially formulated with a high concentration of active ingredients that infuse hydration, promote collagen production and enable sin healing. It’s a well-known fact that in the long run, hydrated skin is more resistant to environmental factors while in the short-term its benefits include a dewy, luminous and firm texture.
The face shop chia seed Moisture Recharge Serum is a ticket to a daily skin-beam.
Sheet masks, it’s absolutely new trend that has taken the world by storm! Sheet masks are basically cotton sheets that are soaked in rejuvenating ingredients which are a godsend for fatigued skin. Within 15 minutes your skin will immediately plumps on, as the necessary nutrients get to work. You can keep a stock of these masks and can pick one depending on what your skin needs.
Some highly recommended face masks are Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask – Collagen and Mond’Sub Bio-Gold Collagen Eye Mask.
These all are the reasons why Korean skincare products have taken the world by storm. So are you guys excited to try this simplified version of the iconic Korean beauty regime!
