This Korean skincare regime is impressively effective and fast-acting. Follow these simple steps religiously to get the best skin of your dreams! 

1) Pick a face wash with skin brightening ingredients

Facial cleansers form the start of a great skincare routine. While double cleansing is a must for healthy, glowing skin, simply using a face wash with skin brightening ingredients also gives you clearer, brighter skin. One powerhouse ingredient that’s a must for your journey towards plump, bouncy and dewy skin is vitamin C. It is one of the most effective antioxidants that not just brightens the skin but also prevents premature aging and protects against free radical damage. Vitamin C stops the production of excess melanin in your skin that causes dark spots and hyperpigmentation. This popular ingredient smoothens wrinkles, fine lines and boosts collagen production, leaving your skin looking youthful and supple. Your skin needs some TLC to make it firm and smooth and our Mon Cherry Brightening Foam Cleanser does the trick. It contains the goodness of vitamin-C rich citric acid and babassu seed oil.

2) Add a facial essence for endless glow

What keeps my skin healthy the most? It’s the moisture content that I replenish with a dedicated AM and PM skincare regime. Adequately and consistently hydrating or moisturizing keeps the skin plump, bouncy and dewy for long. And the very first step is adding a facial essence to your skincare routine.

The essence not just preps your skin but also smoothens skin and takes care of pores. It’s a source of intense hydration and gives you bouncy, soft skin. Use a face essence and let it soothe your damaged and irritated skin. An essence gives you instantly dewy skin that’s ready to absorb all the products you layer on. Take Quench’s brightening Mon Cherry Intense Brightening Essence for instance. This product is what delivers crystal-clear, dewy and supple skin. This radiance-boosting facial essence contains natural ingredients like cherry blossom, grapefruit, licorice root extracts and glycerin!

3) Repair your skin's moisture barrier

Take a guess at how dryness and flakiness affects your skin. They cause fine lines, wrinkles and most importantly, damage your skin’s moisture barrier. You know that the skin has different layers to it and each role layer has a unique job to do. The layer that’s the outermost, known as stratum corneum, is your skin barrier. This skin barrier holds in the moisture, preventing it from evaporating off your skin and keeps all the impurities out. A healthy skin barrier equals plump, bouncy, dewy skin. Okay, but what hampers the skin barrier? Too much exfoliation, harsh ingredients, pollution, UV damage, stress, popping pimples - all of this can cause a compromised skin barrier.

So how do you protect and restore your skin barrier? Simplifying your skincare regime and switching to a bare minimum routine can make a huge difference. Give your skin some time to breathe and chill out. Stick to a cleanser-essence-moisturizer line up for a while. And using products with a suitable pH for your skin does the trick. You want to shop for skincare products with a pH of 5.5 (anything as low as 4.5 and as high as 7 works). Products that maintain your skin's pH help prevent infections, seal in moisture, and keep skin firm. Another way to strengthen your skin barrier is to include products that contain barrier-repairing ingredients like cica, licorice, ceramides or a humectant like hyaluronic acid. Use our spot buster Mama Cica Dark Spot Correcting Ampoule and enjoy the benefits of skin soothing arginine and vitamin E.

4) Create a moisture sandwich 


Guilty of seeking for “perfect” skin on Instagram with various filters? The struggle for skin that’s straight out of your dreams is real but we have a solution. It’s the moisture sandwich technique that’s making us swoon. In simple terms, it is the art of layering the skincare products in such a way to lock in all the hydration efficiently. You begin with damp skin post cleansing and then kickstart your routine with the first layer - a facial mist to replenish lost moisture and calm your skin. Next on the list is a face essence to boost moisture levels and nourish with care. Then, move on to a moisturizer for that ultimate hydration your skin craves. To seal all the moisturization in, grab a body butter or vaseline. This, my fellow skin-lovers, is what’s known as a moisture sandwich. When we put on lighter skincare products and add on thicker layers, the moisture gets trapped and absorbed by our skin better. This technique delivers hydrated, plump, bouncy and radiant skin!

  • Start with damp skin, just out of the shower or post cleansing.
  • Then, apply a facial mist and move on to the next product immediately.
  • Next, massage in a moisturizer gently to seal the hydration in.
  • Finally, add a body butter or vaseline that’s occlusive that’ll keep the moisture locked in.

5) Exfoliate for extra glow

Now you know that over-exfoliation can harm your skin’s barrier. Most people go to extremes, either they skip exfoliators completely or go overboard with it. Exfoliating just 2-3 times a week does the trick for most skin types. Over-exfoliation can cause you to break out, dehydrate your skin and make it flaky. Balance is key; exfoliating too much of it can take away the youthful glow you’re looking for. 

Use an exfoliator that actually suits your skin like our Mama Cica Instabright Peel Pads that are made for all skin types. This product contains glycolic acid, a gentle AHA and papaya extracts. These potent ingredients remove dead skin cells, gently exfoliate, unclog pores, lighten spots and boost skin radiance. Use these peel pads right after cleansing and follow up with a serum or moisturizer. Get smooth, clear skin that glows with these exfoliating peel pads.

6) Indulge in a facial massage

Facial Massage Tools

Getting a massage feels heavenly, doesn’t it? Just like a body massage helps you detox and relax, a facial massage comes with its own set of unique benefits. Korean facial massages are great for toning and sculpting your face. And they also help you achieve glowing glass skin. A dedicated face massage promotes lymphatic drainage and reduces puffiness along with toning, sculpting and lifting effects. 

Indulge in a facial massage and get plump, bouncy, dewy skin in no time. Get a sculpted jawline or cheekbones, defined bone structure and improve sagging skin. Begin by washing your face and then add moisture with a hydrating essence. Don’t forget, you need a generous amount of moisturizer to get that slickness needed to massage.

7) Include a skin plumping serum

Quench Facial Serums

The shiny liquid in a dropper that luxuriously gets put on the face and then gently massaged in skin care ads is a seum. No matter which skin type you are dealing with, a facial serum definitely helps! There are tons of options with formulations that aid in hydrating, brightening, exfoliating and so much more. This liquid skin care hero delivers active ingredients deep into your skin and makes it feel and look refreshed. Face serums with actives like retinol, bakuchiol or vitamin C can help fight free radicals and increase skin cell turnover. The result? Decreased signs  of ageing and plump, bouncy, dewy skin.

Quench knows the importance of a good face serum and offers you a variety. Our Bravocado Intense Brightening Serum contains bakuchiol, hyaluronic acid and avocado for deeply nourished, hydrated skin. And for oily, acne-prone skin, the Chialeader Zit Fix Serum works wonders. It is powered by salicylic acid that deep cleanses pores and reduces breakouts.

8) Don’t skip a face mist

Quench Mon Cherry Brightening Face Mist

Are you one of those people who think that a face mist is just water in a spray bottle that refreshes your skin on a hot day? Well, you are in for a surprise. Face mists actually contain soothing, hydrating ingredients like glycerin, hyaluronic acid, tea tree oil, cica, vitamin C and niacinamide. These ingredients calm the skin, reduce breakouts and rehydrate it while providing instant dewiness that lasts all day. It’s the perfect little pick-me up that can take your skin from dull and dry to plump, bouncy and dewy in a jiffy! Just spritz on after cleansing morning and night or throughout the day as needed.

Our Mama Cica Rejuvenating Face Mist is a boon for oily, troubled, acne-prone skin. It has the goodness of niacinamide, tea tree oil along with cica, Korean ginseng and lotus root. If your skin is dull and dehydrated, we recommend the Mon Cherry Brightening Face Mist.
