1. They Exfoliate With A Washcloth Soaked In Warm Water
If you’re looking to deeply cleanse your skin, here’s a tip from Korean ladies everywhere: use a warm wash cloth to open up pores by applying it over your face.
Afterwards, use the same cloth and scrub your face in circular strokes to improve blood circulation.
2. They Apply Essence Between Two Layers Of Moisturiser
When it comes to Korean skincare, it’s all about hydration and keeping skin supple.
If you’re following the 10 step Korean skincare regime, you’ll know how important essences are. They prep your skin for the products you’ll be applying afterwards and they boost the absorption rate of your skin.
So, instead of moisturising their skin once and then calling it a day, Korean women add another layer of essence and then moisturise once more with a thin layer.
Be sure to exfoliate once or twice a week so your pores don’t get clogged up.
3. They Use Overnight Sleeping Masks
What did we say about Korean skincare and its love for hydration?
On top of moisturising twice, Korean women are big fans of sleeping masks that moisturise their skin while they sleep. Score!
However, skip this if you’re already moisturising twice and save the sleeping mask for days when you’re feeling particularly lazy and in the mood to pamper your skin.
4. They Use Charcoal Sheet Face Masks
Detoxing your skin shouldn’t be that hard when you’ve got multipurpose products like a charcoal sheet mask!
Korean ladies love using this mask because it helps to exfoliate and detox their skin all in one.
5. They Do Steam Massages In The Shower
While cleansing your face with an oil cleanser, give yourself a face massage with simple tapping and rotating motions. It helps to boost blood circulation and creates a dewy complexion for your skin.
