Are You Using Your Korean Skincare Products Right? We Discuss.

We’ve all heard of the 10-step routine of Korean skincare and we know how amazing they are for the skin! But, are you getting the most out of your skincare products? How we apply them is as important as what is inside them! Are you rubbing on your eye cream? That could be doing more harm than good. 

So, let’s find out what is the best way to apply each product! 

Cleanser
Quench Mon Cherry Brightening Foam Cleanser
Usually the first step of any skincare routine, it seem simple enough. Apply a cleanser and rinse, right? Well, only partly! If you are using a cleansing balm, take a bit of the product in your palm and add a few drops of water, so it emulsifies. Now, apply it on dry or damp skin and massage gently in circular motions for a couple of minutes to break down dirt and impurities. Rinse well. 

If you are using a gel or cream-based cleanser, make sure to use it on damp skin. Massage it into your skin for a few minutes to ensure your skin has enough time to release any dirt and to absorb all the goodness of the product!

Ampoule or Serum 
QUENCH BRAVOCADO INTENSE BRIGHTENING SERUMA lightweight ampoule or serum is a great way to get high concentrations of actives into the skin. Take a few drops of serum into your palm and press it onto clean, dry skin. Do not use sweeping motions – use tapping motions to ensure your skin absorbs it completely! If you’re using an oil serum, use your fingertips to gently massage your face to boost blood circulation!

Always be super gentle when applying moisturizer. Rubbing is not good for anyone’s skin. Instead, take a pea-sized amount of product and warm it up between your fingers. Dot it all over your face and neck, and massage it in gently using your fingertips until absorbed. If you want an extra boost of hydration, you can switch out your regular moisturizer for a sleeping mask. Just apply a thin mask over a clean, dry face, and go to bed. 

Recommended sleeping masks:

Eye CreamQuench eye cream

When it comes to our under-eye area, we need to remember that the skin there is extremely delicate. If you’re using an under-eye cream, always take a small amount on your third finger, and tap it in. You can also use an eye cream which comes with an inbuilt roller for smoother, gentler application.

Sheet Mask

For added hydration, add a sheet mask in your skincare routine - a biweekly treat for your skin! Sheet masks usually come in a standard size. They boost glow, hydration levels and supply your skin with essential nutrients. Start with a clean, dry face and smooth over your favourite sheet mask, leaving no skin bare. Gently pat it in to avoid any bubbles forming. Now relax for the next 15 minutes! Remove it and tap the remaining serum into your skin.

Sunscreen

This is the most important step in any skincare routine. Think of sunscreen as a protective layer over your skin, which protects you from the harmful rays of the sun. Look for non-comedogenic sunscreen to avoid breakouts. To apply, take a coin-sized amount and smooth it over your face and neck. Let it absorb for at least 20 minutes before stepping out in the sun. 

That’s it! Now go ace your skincare!
