KOREAN SKINCARE ROUTINE

Skin care is the range of practices that support skin integrity, enhance its appearance and relieve skin conditions. They can include nutrition, avoidance of excessive sun exposure and appropriate use of emollients.


Benefits of good skin care:

•Taking care of skin can also prevent wrinkles.

•Reduce visible pores, wrinkles, and under eye circles.

•Protection from harmful sun rays will prevent sun damage, blemishes, and hyper-pigmentation.


Best products of skincare routine include:


1.Cleansing:

Cleansers are used to rid your face of dirt, oil, pollution etc. A cleanser dissolves away excess oil, makeup and grime from your face. These are oil-soluble impurities.

They can be removed by a face wash too, but that might be not be 100% effective.


•Oil Based Cleanser (Evening only):

Oil cleansers are the best way to get rid of the makeup, SPF, and sebum that clog your pores.

These formulae remove all oil based impurities from the skin. In fact, the jojoba, grape-seed and squalane based cleansers are quite a joy to rub onto the skin as you see and feel it working to dissolve impurities.

•Water Based Cleanser:

Water based cleansers are usually foamy in texture and draw out water-soluble impurities like sweat. Green tea enriched cleansers are great to treat breakouts, and ginkgo has natural anti-bacterial properties that help clean your skin.

•Exfoliator (Once a week)

The quickest way to a visibly brighter skin is sloughing off the dead skin cells using gentle physical exfoliators like rice extract scrubs and lactic/glycolic acid based chemical exfoliators. Exfoliators are important because by getting rid of the dead skin cells, it is easier for the applied products to absorb into the skin cells and do real good underneath! Please follow product instructions and don’t use more frequently than recommended!

Pro Tip:

There’s a LOT of product in each container. You can supplement the exfoliation pads with your own cotton cosmetic pads that will easily soak up excess exfoliating serum andextend the product life.

2. Preparation:

Toners are the ultimate way to prepare your skin. They offer a perfect transition from cleaning to nourishment steps as your skin is moisturised and the pH is restored.

•Toner:

Toners come in a variety of formulae but the most famous ones draw on natural goodness of ingredients like aloe vera. Toners repair the skin barrier and make it ready to suck up moisture.

3.Nourishment:

Essences, ampules, serums, sheets masks, eye creams, lotions, moisturisers, packs, and boosters are elaborate skincare steps, all working towards one goal: skin nourishvitality.

•Essence:

Essence, ampoules, and serums are often interchangeable by name. Essence is usually the most lightweight product which goes on right after the toner. Essences are concentrated hydrators and aim towards achieving a more youthful skin by enhancing the cell turnover rate. When layering essence with serum and/or ampoule, use the thinnest formulas under the thicker formulas.

Ampoule, Serum:

Based on the particular skin problem, like fine lines or hyperpigmentation, these products pack a punch. Ampoules, serums, and boosters are highly concentrated and are sometimes used as spot treatments i.e. are applied only to the affected area of the skin rather than slapping the product on all over.

Sheet Masks (Once a week or as needed):

Seeped in concentrated essences and serums, the sheet masks are applied directly to the skin, to allow the skin to soak up all the nutrition through continued application to the face. Calendula, cucumber, green tea, snail, and royal honey remain cult favourites while the internet is filled with bubble mask selfies. The mask also encourages you to relax into a meditation like setting, allowing your skin to further de-stress and unwind.

Pro Tip:

If you have time to do a sheet mask everyday then good for you! But try to make time at least once a week for this wonderful treat for your skin.


•Eye cream:

Drawing inspiration from the Korean tradition of using Ginseng and Royal Honey to treat dark under-eye circles, eye creams are packed with powerful ingredients to ensure that those crow feet remain in check. This one from Sulwhasoo is an amazing holy grail item but is very pricey. If you want to save money, try using the AHC Eye Cream for Face which does double duty as both an eye cream and a moisturizer.

•Moisturizer serum:

As we age, skin moisture can drop significantly, which makes the skin lose elasticity and expose the signs of aging on the skin.

Cos De BAHA Hyaluronic Acid serum is indispensable for its line-smoothing, hydrating and Plumping properties, without a heavy feel.Hyaluronic acid is know to increase our cell's ability to bind water, giving our skin a plumper and firmer appearance. Can be used day or night even be used around the eyes.

Cos De BAHA HA serum 60 is indispensable for its line-smoothing, hydrating and plumping properties, without a heavy feel.

4.Protection:

You don’t need protection from sun simply because it causes skin cancer. In fact, Koreans are so mindful of the aging effects of the sun that in addition to sunscreen, they regularly use parasols, hats, visors, and gloves as they go about their daily lives. But regardless of any accessories, facial sunscreen is a must even if your foundation includes SPF.

Sun Protection (Daytime only):

The last step of the 10 step Korean skin care regime is to apply sun screen on the top. Using mineral based sun protection is recommended but if you’re like me and find the formulation too drying or don’t like the white cast, use a good chemical sunscreen to ensure that the harmful UV rays don’t damage your skin.

One Last Critical Step!

So you have applied all your skin care and walked your way through the 10 step Korean skin care regime
BUT!
You need to stop and look at the clock! Sleep is a critically important part of your skincare regime. In fact, science reveals that skin is in repair mode only while we sleep. In the day time, the skin cells are in a proactive mode. Therefore, if you want to see some real difference in your skin, you should call it a night and save the show for the weekend.
