Have you ever watched k-drama and thought how those actors / actresses have flawless skin? Koreans always continue to be the best at their beauty game. It is not as easy as it looks, they do spend a lot of time on skincare routine, diet and beauty products. They are just groomed by their mother and aunts on how to care for their skin. It’s a part of the Korean Beauty culture. We managed to get some of the best Korean Beauty secrets you didn’t know that doing these steps could help you get glass-like skin that Koreans seem to be blessed with.
Take a look at these Korean Beauty secrets:
Steams can revive & repair your skin and Koreans know it well. They pamper themselves with a quick steam before they take a shower. While steam opens pores and helps clear dirt that is settled in them, Steaming can also dehydrate your skin if you do it daily on bare skin. So try to massage your face with essential oils using your fingertips in a circular motion and upward direction for about 2 – 3 mins before taking the hot steam.
- Charcoal Mask:
Buying sheet masks is a common skin care routine in South Korea. Charcoal sheet mask helps you with removal of impurities like dirt, oil, and pollution that can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion looking dull.Charcoal mask helps you to get the impurities out from the skin which makes the skin look clean and feels fresh. It detoxes and exfoliates your skin, and all you have to do is to let the sheet stay on your face for 15 to 20 minutes while you relax.
- Perfect Makeup:
Have you ever tried air cushion foundation? It blurs the unwanted imperfections on your face. It is a signature cosmetic of Korean, using which you can blur your face like a pro. Cushion foundations are liquid in nature and offer a dewy finish and they come in an easy-to-carry compact size. You can just dab the foundation onto your skin for a flawless-looking finish.
- Healthy Natural Lips:
To get healthy natural lips like Koreans, exfoliate your lips on a regular basis. Now choose your lip balm that suits your lip color, it makes you look more vibrant.
- Oils for Face & Hair:
Korean Camellia oil is a rich source of Palmitic & Omega-6 Linoleic fatty acids as well as numerous anti-aging polyphenol antioxidants. It is non-greasy and an excellent all-around moisturizer for the skin and as well as for your hair.
- Sleep Face Mask:
During sleep is when your skin cells turnover into new one’s & do their work on cell recovery on the damaged cells. So, it is the best time to hyper-moisturize your skin. I like to apply a sleeping mask to remove all the dirt from the week to wear off. When you wake up, weeks of dirt and dead skin cells will come off your face. Which will give you a glow in your face.
- Barley Tea:
Ever heard about barley tea? If you have been to Korea then you sure saw that Korean restaurant gives you a nutty tasting tea? It’s probably barley tea, which is served to Korean babies from birth to protect their skin and overall well-being. Barley tea is rich in antioxidants and a study showed that drinking it can improve blood circulation. Some suggest it may even be useful as a weight loss drink.
