All three are able to lift makeup and dirt on the face after a day of activities.
After lifting all the makeup using cleansing oil, you can continue using regular facial cleansers, but Korean women prefer water-based facial cleansers which are considered not only to lightly cleanse the face but also to keep the skin moist as well as the dewy that certainly does not make your face it gets dry.
It’s not enough to just cleanse your face; Korean women always routinely do exfoliation. Exfoliation is a crucial part especially for those of you who often use makeup that is quite heavy or exposed to sunlight. Exfoliate at least twice a week to be able to remove dead skin cells so that the skin remains smooth and clean. But make sure you use the right product according to your skin needs to avoid irritation.
It can be said that toner is a beauty product that is able to prepare the skin before receiving other care products. Usually Korean women like to use toner by pouring the product on the palm of the hand and then patting it all over the skin, or there is also an applicator such as cotton. Toner is also believed to help balance skin pH so that your beauty products can absorb better.
Serum has a higher concentration of active ingredients so it is effective for treating the skin. Serum texture is generally mild and easily absorbs into the skin. How to use it is also easy, just use 1-3 drops then flatten it all over the face. Choose a serum that suits your skin needs, because there is a serum to treat acne scars, serum to fight signs of aging, until the serum to overcome skin dehydration. You just choose a product that suits your skin.
Essence is one product that helps to moisturize the skin. When compared with serum, essence generally has a lighter and slightly thicker concentration, but not as thick as moisturizing cream. But the texture of essence itself depends on the policy of each brand that makes it. Then you should use essence after serum.
Don’t be surprised if it’s easy to find masks in sheets or sheet masks. Both women and men routinely use sheet masks, even almost every day. They spend time every 15-20 minutes in the morning or evening. Sheet mask is included as one of the important routines because it has a lot of essence that can give extra moisture to the skin. The skin feels more moist and supple with routine use. When it’s finished, massage the remaining essence until it absorbs the entire face. For those of you who want a cooling effect, you can also save the sheet mask in the refrigerator before use it.
Dark circles under the eyes are rarely found in Korean women. Well, if you want to be free of dark circles, try to try regularly using eye cream early on. In addition to stimulating skin regeneration, eye cream is able to maintain moisture and help tighten areas around the eyes. Remember, do not rub it excessively. Simply apply and pat gently using the ring finger.
Besides using serum, essence, and sheet mask, moisturizer has become the main thing to keep skin moist. The key is to adjust the moisturizer you use with the skin type and apply it every morning and night, from the face to the skin of the neck.
Most Korean women abstain from home before using sunscreen. Whether during activities inside or outside the room, for them sunscreen is very important to use every day. Routinely using sunscreen can function as a natural anti-aging product on the face. Although SPF is the last step in Korean beauty rituals, this product is quite important and obligatory for the skin.
