While binge-watching a Korean show, do you ever wonder - How do Koreans have such impeccable glowing skin? What’s their skincare routine?
We did some digging, and found some well-kept secrets that can help you turn your skin from dull to enviably gorgeous. So read on!
1. Always double cleanse your face
Koreans swear by the rule of double cleansing, double hydration and double masking in their skincare routine! So, your first step should be a cleansing method that includes an oil-based cleanser such as Mon Cherry Dirt Dissolving Cleansing Balm that will melt away dirt, grime and oil-based impurities followed by a foaming face wash—Mon Cherry Brightening Foam Cleanser that deep cleanses pores and exfoliates skin. This ensures that your skin gets cleared from every bit of dirt from the pores while making your skin breathe properly.
2. Try facial exercises
What’s the most striking feature of Koreans? It’s their V-shaped jawline and is achieved with the help of a face workout. They practice a brief mouth stretch to keep skin bright and firm. Some of the face exercises are moving sideways and puckering lips and swallowing your chin up to help lift saggy skin. You can repeat these facial stretches daily to achieve a naturally contoured face and trust us you’ll witness the difference in weeks.
3. Don’t sleep with makeup on
Nighttime is the best time for your skin recovery as it gets the time to relax. And if you sleep with makeup on, impurities and dead skin cells clog the pores which can lead to breakouts. Before hitting the bed make sure you remove makeup by double cleansing— first with Mon Cherry Dirt Dissolving Cleansing Balm that helps to remove grime and oil-based impurities and then with a Yuzu Fine Vitamin C Foaming Face Wash so that your skin can breathe easily. Applying a Chialeader Zit Fix Serum is crucial as throughout the day our skin gets exposed to pollution, so this will rejuvenate your skin and give you that healthy glow.
4. Always apply products to your neck
Koreans take their skincare very seriously. They take as much care of the neck as their face. Slather on cream or moisturizer to your face and neck in an upward motion to keep it looking smooth and younger-looking. Honestly, what’s the point of having flawless skin when you have a dull neck?
5. Always use sunscreen
When it comes to slowing down your ageing process, sunscreen is a must. One should always reapply it after every 4-5 hours. Even if you are indoors, a layer of Bravocado SPF 50+ PA++++ Sunscreen Gel is necessary as UV rays can travel through glass windows easily. One can even witness multiple skin problems such as tanning, sunburns, itching, rashes and even skin cancer caused due to harmful radiation.
6. Apply the products the right way
The right way to apply skincare products on your face is to take a small quantity on your fingers and gently lather in a circular motion rather than violently rubbing. This makes sure your skin gets all the nutrients of the product and gets absorbed.
7. Add rice water to your skincare regime
Rice water works as a natural moisturizer that helps to slow down ageing, fade age spots, reduce dark circles and brighten your skin. You can invest in the rice water range by Quench that gives your skin a relaxing effect while helping to achieve healthy looking skin.
8. Exfoliating skin with a damp cloth
An effective and quick skincare hack is to use a cotton cloth and dip it in warm water to gently scrub your face. This will get the excess oil and dirt on the cloth, making your skin clearer in a few minutes. NOTE: People with acne prone skin and rosacea should avoid it as it can make their skin condition more severe. All you have to do is soak the cloth and gently swipe it in an upward motion to exfoliate your skin. Sounds easy, right?
