Korean Barley Tea
Korean women love barley tea because it’s high in antioxidants. Antioxidants prevent environmental free radicals from affecting your skin and causing wrinkles to form. Plus, research shows that barley tea also prevent tooth decay by creating an inhospitable environment for bacteria to bloom.
We love our kimchi and it’s for good reason too. Kimchi might be pungent but it’s full of probiotics and good bacteria that can help to promote the production of good bacteria in your stomach and digestive tract.
Having a good digestive tract prevents acne and other skin issues from popping up. That’s because, when your digestive tract is cleared, your body doesn’t suffer from inflammation.
Makgeolli is a famous Korean alcoholic drink but it’s also beneficial for your skin and gut.
Just like kimchi, makgeolli has plenty of probiotics. Some Korean brands like Tony Moly also sell sheet masks made with makgeolli extracts!
Seaweed soup is full of omega-3s and antioxidants to help protect skin from sun damage and other environmental skincare damage. Plus, because it’s so full of liquids, you’ll be hydrated too.
Ginseng is a an Asian herb that just about everyone loves and it’s full of vitamins and minerals for your skin. The minerals and antioxidants are also great for metabolising your skin cells and promote the growth of new skin.
Filled with Vitamin E and antioxidants, soybean paste helps to repair and protect skin cells!
