Korean beauty culture will completely change the way you take care of your skin. Replicate that dewy-skinned, pore-less complexion that you covet with these tips and they won’t break the bank, either.
11. Just Dew It
On this side of the world, we’re always striving for matte skin, but we are so wrong. Get rid of all those powders, papers and foundations that make you shine-free. Dewy skin is where it’s at.
Don’t be ashamed if you shine from a little moisture — it’s natural and means your skin is well-hydrated, which will keep wrinkles at bay. Embrace the shine. It’s so much sexier than dry, cracked skin.
10. Bright lipstick + translucent skin = GORGEOUS
Ditch those darker shades of lipstick, blush and eyeshadow. Brighten up with light pink, peach and apricot shades that are cute and oh-so-feminine. Never thought pink or red eye shadow could work? Think again — even adult women wear it over in South Korea.
To go along with these brighter shades, think dewy, translucent, and pale skin.
9. Cushion Compacts
Cushion compacts are hot. They allow you to layer as much as you want for flawless coverage without looking cakey and heavy. Your regular ol’ foundation doesn’t stand a chance.
And if you need to reapply throughout the day, go right ahead.
8. Give Your Hair Some Love
What’s the secret to those long, shiny locks? Despite a penchant for digital perms and highlights, super shiny hair is the norm.
Use hair masks and hair serums on a regular basis to get that K-Pop shine.
7. Don’t Rub — Pat
If you’re rubbing products onto your skin, from toners to cream, you’re doing your skin a disservice. Skin weakens with age, and if you keep rubbing that stuff on, it’ll just cause wrinkles and sagging to appear faster.
Always apply your skincare products by patting them on, instead of rubbing. Plus, it improves the absorption rate.
6. Nosh on Food That’s In Season
Eat a healthy diet, and your body will reward you with gorgeous skin.
The key is to eat food that’s in season and local, because it’s the most nutritious.
5. Make It A Rule To Double-Cleanse
Dirt gets into your pores, and one wash over won’t cut it if you want to keep blemishes away.
Do the double-cleanse: first, massage your dry face with a cleanser that’s oil-based. Then, wet your face and rinse what you can off. It won’t get all the oil, but the next round will do it for you — wash your face this time with a gel or foam cleanser.
4. Essence Then Toner
Essence is a watery solution that is much like a toner, but you need to apply it first before the toner. It hydrates your skin and balances pH levels.
Then, you can move on to your toner.
3. Nail Stickers
Nail stickers and nail wraps aren’t just for the little people.
Big people can get them, too, for fancy nail art that will WOW more than plain ol’ polish.
2. Ceramide Saver
You’ve heard of hyaluronic acid, right? That stuff that plumps up parched skin at the cellular level? Well, ceramide is like that, but better.
Ceramide is a lipid that comes in serum, cream or capsule form. An essential for the winter.
1. Sleeping Packs
What are sleeping packs? They’re basically a gel-like substance that you put on right before you go to bed. It protects your skin as you sleep and prevents all of your other skincare products from coming off on your pillow.
It’s also a great moisturizer!
