With age, the skin suffers from the appearance of signs of aging. It becomes drier and thinner with the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, pores, dark spots, and other skin problems. You cannot stop aging, but you can improve the appearance of your skin. Proper care and positive lifestyle changes will also help.
In this article, we delve into the monthly Korean skin care routine, especially as Korean women enjoy glowing skin that is free from blemishes and acne. Their skin is always radiant, smooth and homogeneous. Were they born this beautiful? of course not. These women work hard to achieve a radiant, flawless complexion, and they do whatever it takes to protect and preserve their skin.
They also learn to take care of their skin from childhood. For Korean women, skin care is a vital investment, and they spend time and money pampering them. They also follow a multi-step beauty routine that includes an oil cleansing, foaming cleansing, exfoliation, ampoule treatment, face mask, and more.
Here are the secrets of Korean women to get white and radiant skin. Try to use organic skin care products to avoid any damage from harmful chemicals or synthetic materials.
Step one is to removes all traces of makeup, oil, and dirt with a liquid cleanser. Then the cleansing oil works to remove bacteria and impurities from the face and neck. Finally, wash off with warm water. This whole process is my pre-cleaning routine.
The second step cleans the face again. This time using a mild foaming cleanser applied in a soft, circular motion, using fingertips to avoid rubbing the skin.
After cleansing, Korean women do a facial massage. Facial massages boost blood circulation and give skin a healthy glow.
Massage your face toward the facial muscles. Start below the cheekbones and use your first finger joints to work your way up to the temple. Then massage the nose sides, forehead and your face. When massaging, the trick is to press as hard as possible on the face.
Exfoliate as needed during the month to remove dead skin cells and excess oils from the skin. Focus on the T Zone, cheeks and nose. If you have oily skin, exfoliate it every week to prevent clogging of pores. Otherwise, resort to exfoliating twice a month.
Exfoliating and cleansing makes your skin absorbable. Using a cotton ball, apply toner to your face, neck and chest to complete an overnight cleansing. Repeat the same step in the morning, to remove the accumulated oils overnight and to balance your skin’s pH throughout the day.
In contrast, Korean women wash their faces with rice water for centuries. It is a natural moisturizer that helps lighten skin, reduce dark circles, and lighten dark spots. For this treatment, allow the rice to soak in the water for 10 – 15 minutes. Then use rice water as a skin toner.
Application of serums
Koreans were the first to use serums that focused on their skin, and applied them to their face and neck. Today, this practice is still part of their beauty routine. Serums are a nourishing liquid that is packed with nutrients for your skin. Nutrients include hyaluronic acid and glycerine, which increase cell turnover and elasticity, and refresh the complexion.
The use of a mask depends on what skin needs. Choose a moisturizing mask or, if necessary, one rich in vitamins C and B and other natural ingredients. You don’t need to wear a mask every night, twice a week should suffice.
Natural face masks
Korean women believe that the most effective beauty secrets come from Mother Nature, and they prefer face masks made with natural ingredients. Yeast, green tea, avocado, kelp, and snail mucin are among the products used.
Fermented yeast is a fortified B vitamin that helps boost metabolism and maintain healthy skin. Green tea replenishes tired skin and maintains its natural glow. Kelp is rich in minerals and antioxidants that nourish the skin. Snail mucin helps replenish skin cells with healthy-looking skin.
The eye cream helps prevent dark circles, wrinkles, and puffiness from appearing. Apply it around the eyes to keep this area moisturized and protect it from wrinkles.
These beautiful women always put on sunscreen when they are out during the day. Sunscreen protects against UV rays and prevents spots, wrinkles, and premature signs of aging.
