Korean beauty routine

The beginnings of Korean cosmetics arose from the need to protect the skin from the effects of cold and sunlight. The first remedies were fats used with extracts of wheat, aloe, rice, wormwood, Asian centelle, and other plants. Korean cosmetics are rich in plant extracts with soothing, moisturizing, and antioxidant effects that are important for maintaining bright skin. Bright and radiant skin is considered a standard of beauty. The beauty routine practiced by Korean women and girls is widely known around the world. We want to introduce the main steps of this routine:

1. Skin cleansing

Makeup and skin cleaned with micellar water or cosmetic milk or another oil-based cleanser.

2. Skin cleansing with cleanser

After removing the make-up, the second step of skin cleansing follows – the skin is cleaned with a water-based cleanser.

3. Exfoliation

This step does not need to be done daily, but the skin should be scrubbed at least a couple of times a week. During exfoliation, dead skin cells are removed, facial skin becomes softer. It is important to choose a scrub that is right for your skin and does not irritate it.

4. Toning

The toner helps to regulate the pH of the skin, revitalizes the skin, and prepares it for use by other means. The toner also helps to remove excess oil and gives the skin moisture.

5. Deep moisturizing

This is one of the essential parts of a Korean skincare routine. Deep hydration soothes your skin and heals it at the same time. Sera used for deep irrigation enriched with moisturizing ingredients at the same time accelerate cell renewal.

6. Facial massage

Massaging the face with light circular movements of the fingers activates the blood circulation of the facial skin, improves the absorption of cosmetic active ingredients, and makes the facial skin firmer and more vibrant.

8. Face mask

Face sheet masks are especially popular in Korea, moisturized with various useful substances deeply moisturize the facial skin. We recommend using them at least 2-3 times a week.

9. Moisturize the skin around the eyes

The skin around the eyes shows signs of aging. The eye skin products protect against wrinkles, dark circles, and small wrinkles around the eyes. Moisturizing eye patches soothe the skin under the eyes and maintain moisture balance.

10. Cream

This step in the Korean beauty routine is vital to “lock-in” previous steps. It’s like a barrier used to lock previously used products. If you have oily skin, use a mild, lotion-based moisturizer. If the skin is dry, use a creamy moisturizer to prevent skin irritation.

Each of us has unique skin and there are no standard rules on how to take care of it, but we can try a few steps of the Korean beauty routine and choose what works best and works for everyone.
