Your skin bears all kinds of strain of climate, chemicals, and whatnot. Korean skincare is well-known for its detailed skincare routine involving several steps. Sure, if you follow the Korean skincare routine, you can have the healthiest skin, but Korean products are quite expensive.
We have found that you can follow the Korean skincare routine without buying these expensive products. The beauty secrets below will only cost you a fraction of the Korean skincare regimen and give you the same results.
No matter which skincare product you use, it cannot hide the fact that your skin is not getting the nourishment it needs.
Drink plenty of water to remove the toxins from your body, and make sure you get a balanced diet rich in essential vitamins and minerals.
In addition, get sufficient rest – at least 8 hours of sleep a day.
Staying healthy is a lifelong habit that will reward you in the long run.
Clean in two rounds
Korean women do not just clean their face with a water-based cleanse. They first use an oil-based cleanser which removes all the makeup and other particles that water-based cleanser cannot remove.
This is followed by a mild water-based cleanser to wash off the extra oil. Make sure you do not rub your skin with a towel, but gently pat dry.
We have been told to rub to wash off dirt effectively. However, Korean skincare is against using force on skin. Whether you are applying a scrub, or a cleanser or drying your face, remember to only gently caress.
To apply serums, press on the skin with your fingers. This improves blood circulation and allows the serum to be absorbed easily.
Use mild natural toner
The toners widely available in the market contain alcohol and are harmful for skin. The toners in Korean skincare are made of natural ingredients and are applied using cotton.
You can use peach skin toner or make your own natural toner at home.
Moisturize with masks
Use moisturizing masks once or twice a week to keep your skin hydrated.
You can also make these masks at your home as per your skin needs. They are just as effective as the masks in the market and also do not contain any preservatives or chemicals.
Keeping facial muscles in shape
We focus a lot on toning the muscles of our body, but what about the muscles of the face? A toned face presents a great shape and makes you look young. To keep facial muscles in good shape, massage your skin while applying the serum. You can also try some facial exercises to keep the muscles toned.
Do not forget Essence
The most unique part of Korean skincare is the essence. It’s best to buy this essence since it’s not possible to make such a concentrated liquid rich in nutrients at home.
You should apply the essence after applying the face mask.
Do not exfoliate too much
Exfoliating is important as it removes dirt and allows skin renewal. However, it is bad if you do it a lot. We recommend exfoliating only twice a month.
Give more time to your skin
Achieving perfection takes time. Just like people take out time to exercise, do yoga, or to watch movies to relax, it’s important to take some time out taking care of your skin too!
