6 Korean Skincare Techniques You Must Try At Home For Great Skin

The first thing that springs up when someone mentions K-beauty is the elaborate 12-step skincare routine. Although effective, it is a big ask, and is not the only way to achieve glass skin. If you’re looking for an effective shortcut to reach your #skingoals quicker, then you’ve got to try these best-kept Korean skincare techniques, which BTW can be easily done at home. 

1. Double Cleansing 

Look at your skin like it is a sponge. It absorbs whatever it is exposed to. For most of us, the takeaway from urban life is dirt, dust, pollution, and grease. So, at the end of the day a lone cleanser does not cut it. The double cleansing method really is a game-changer, as it makes the skin squeaky clean without stripping it. If you’ve not tried this yet, you’ve been missing out! Hop on the double cleansing bandwagon with the Mon Cherry Dirt Dissolving Cleansing Balm. Take your time to massage it and let it melt away makeup, dirt and grime. Post that, use a gentle foaming cleanser, to make sure your face is super-clean. Try our Mon Cherry Brightening Foam Cleanser to rejuvenate, purify and hydrate your skin!

It’s common to use a cotton pad to apply toners and essences but the K-beauty rule book very clearly advocates using your fingers to dab and press the product in. The rule applies to serums too! Patting not only prevents smearing, but also improves blood flow and allows the product to seep in better. Aggressive tapping can increase collagen in the skin overtime. But, we don’t want you to start slapping your skin every time you apply your products. If you get a little flush it's fine, anything beyond that then you’re overdoing it. 

3. NOT Ignoring The Under Eye

Looking at Korean women makes us wonder if they have some magic pen to erase their dark circles and puffiness. What if we told you that they do have one! Enter: eye creams. A permanent resident in their AM and PM routine, Korean women do not cut back when it comes to under eye care. That’s one way they successfully cover up their age – because wrinkles and fine lines don’t stand a chance against them, obviously. We’ve got a magic pen for you right here: the Yuzu Fine Revitalizing Under Eye Gel that has 3x more vitamin C, that brightens and moisturizes the delicate area.

4. Every Second Counts 

As per Korean beauty standards, if you’re cleansing is done within 60 seconds, then that is not *real cleansing*. You need to really go over your face and neck for a good 60 seconds minimum to thoroughly get all the gunk out. Then while your face is still damp from that rigorous cleansing, apply your essence and serum. Do it within the span of 60 seconds. The reason for this rush is that products simply absorb better on damp skin, and give you a nice dewy glow as compared to applying them on dry skin. 

5. In Rice We Trust

Using rice water for glowing skin runs deep in Korean philosophy, and has been used since ages by them. It is known to hydrate, boost even skin tone, and tone the skin. All thanks to the vital minerals, amino acids, antioxidants as well as vitamin B and E, rice water does a lot more than you thought it could! We love how the Mesmerice Intense Repair Serum adds a noticeable glow and radiance, from all the goodness of rice water, vitamin E, olive, aloe vera, and glycerin. 

6. Facial Massages To The Rescue

These age-defying facial massages do not require any rollers or high-tech devices, the magic lies in your hands (or well, your fingers.) After you slather your face with a facial oil, use your fingers to work in an upward and outward motion. Start at the base of your neck, on both sides, and move your way upwards towards the eyes. Follow slow circular kneading motions throughout. Benefits of Korean skincare techniquesThere you have it. Now that you know some inside-info, it’s not long that you will sport healthy and glowing skin!
