Korean Beauty Secrets You Can Adopt
As one of the most important of the Korean beauty secrets or any beauty secret, in that case, cleansing is quite important to the skin’s health. Before starting any skin care routine, you have to cleanse to remove the day’s dirt with a liquid makeup remover then use an oil cleanser to eliminate bacteria without drying up the skin. Afterwards, rinse with lukewarm water. Second cleansing involves using a mild cream or foaming cleanser.
Since it’s not a good idea to exfoliate your skin every day, just concentrate on scrubbing the areas that are really in need of scrubbing like the nose or cheeks.
Tone it Up
Tighten your skin with a hydrating toner that soothes the skin and restores the PH balance.
Spritzing essence on the skin enhances the skin’s cellular renewal process which leads to a firmer skin. This is a step that our Korean friends never skip.
The ampoule is an essence that is rich in vitamins, is condensed and has a slick consistency. It mainly tries to solve those annoying anti aging issues.
Putting on facial sheet masks is another one of the Korean beauty secrets that never goes out of style. If you are going to do this, apply the skin mask two or three times a week only. Keep an eye out for specific masks that hydrate and promise to restore your skin’s youth. And if you are not a fan of masks, you can swap them with a quick facial massage.
Apply some eye cream around the eye area so as to moisturize and to keep wrinkles at bay. Do not tug or pull while at it, rather just tap it in.
Use a light-weight emulsion which can double as a facial moisturizer and lightly massage it into your face and neck using your finger tips. For those who incorporate this in their skin care routines know that it promotes circulation.
