Healthy skin is an integral part of having a healthy body. The surface often reflects the kind of care and attention you put inside and out, so it’s essential to eat right and use natural products on your face. Korean brands like SKINFOOD use ingredients that you can find in your kitchen as their primary component to ensure that each product is safe for any skin. (Image Credit: Kamila Maciejewska /Unsplash)
Aside from choosing the suitable products for your skin type, you should also develop care habits. Your skin continuously comes in contact with sunshine and pollutants that can make it freaking out, resulting in stubborn zits, excessive oil, or dryness. That’s why developing a daily skincare regimen is vital to keep your skin more beautiful and healthier than ever.
Check out these tips from one of the leading Korean skincare brands:
1. Keep Your Skin Clean
One way to achieve healthy skin is to keep it clean, especially before bedtime. Achieve the most-sought Korean glass skin described as luminous, translucent, pore-free skin – just like glass with double-cleansing. First, use an oil-based cleanser or makeup remover to soften makeup and dirt.
Next, use a water cleanser or cleansing foam like the Egg White Perfect Pore Cleansing Foam. It contains deep-cleansing pore-minimizing ingredients such as albumin-rich egg whites to diminish enlarged pores visibly. It helps refine your skin texture to achieve poreless skin look and noticeably even-toned, smooth, and soft skin.
2. Don’t Skip the Moisturizer
The best Korean beauty product on the market today offers a wide range of skincare products to help moisturize your skin. While some at-home staples such as honey, olive oil, and coconut oil contain hydrating humectants to moisturize the surface, you can also try commercially available Korean moisturizers.
You can try the Premium Tomato Whitening Cream from SKINFOOD, which is rich in Vitamin C and lycopene from tomatoes for a noticeably brighter skin complexion. Bring back the radiance and glow of your skin with its sun-kissed tomato extract. Also, it has a luxurious formula that sinks, quickly providing an immediate hydrating effect by replenishing lost skin moisture.
3. Use a Natural Mask
Celebrities swear by the effectivity of Korean sheet masks. You can create your DIY mask by combining honey and yogurt to gently slough off old and dead skin, leaving the skin soft, hydrated, and glowing. In a small bowl, mix two tablespoons of Greek yogurt and one tablespoon of honey. Apply the DIY mask to your face and let it dry for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse it off with lukewarm water.
If you don’t have the time to make a DIY mask, you can use the SKINFOOD Black Sugar Honey Mask Wash, which is enriched with manuka, acacia honey, and Brazilian black sugar to exfoliate your skin while restoring its radiance. Just make sure that you leave it on for the required number of hours, and don’t accidentally leave it on overnight.
4. Exfoliate Weekly
When you wake up in the morning, you can create a simple body scrub made of sugar, oil, and coffee grounds. Combine a cup of brewed coffee grounds, ½ cup of brown sugar, and coconut or olive oil in a small bowl. During your morning shower, apply this DIY mixture all over your body and rinse.
If you don’t have the time to create a DIY scrub, you might want to try Black Sugar Perfect Essential Scrub, which contains refined botanical oils and rice wine that gently slough off excess oil, dirt, makeup, and dead skin cells for a smoother and brighter skin complexion.
5. Nourish Your Skin Inside and Out
Stress, dehydration, lack of vitamin D, increased caffeine intake, and sleep deprivation can affect your skin. Also, it affects the ability of the immune system to detoxify and avoid inflammation. Your skin immediately reflects the kind of care you put inside of it.
That’s why it’s vital to promote general wellness by getting enough sleep, drinking more water so you can keep your skin hydrated, and eating healthy fruits and vegetables, most especially foods high in antioxidants and Vit D, such as blueberries, mushrooms and spinach.
A part of your healthy skin care routine should include deep cleansing, moisturizing, and hydrating your skin. You can create DIY or homemade skincare treats, like body scrub and facial masks. Also, you can try the best Korean skincare products to maximize the skin health benefits of natural ingredients, like honey, sugar, rice water, and botanical oils. Either way, natural products can help promote your skin’s health and vitality.
