Achieving Korean Skin GlowBeauty22 June 2018

It’s no secret that every lady wants that glowing and smooth Korean-inspired skin. However, it’s pretty hard to achieve it in such a short time. Here are some tips to achieve the desired skin of your dreams, and it all requires the simple but consistent steps.
First, cleansing is an essential part of the Korean skincare rulebook as most women there cleanse twice in one sitting. After removing your makeup at the end of the day, you should then remove any sebum and bacteria using gentle, oil-based cleanser. The next cleanser you will use should be a mild cream or foaming cleanser. It is recommended to rub your skin in soft circular motions to prevent any damage.
Second, a must-have Korean beauty hack is essences. This ultra-concentrated liquid or lotion is packed with active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin, which revitalize the skin after cleansing process. This helps your skin with firming, brightening, and increasing elasticity. Once you apply the essence, gently tap it into your skin to further help with absorption. Pro-tip: use these magic potions right after you clean your face without hesitating, as hydrated skin absorbs a lot more nutrition than the dry one.
Third, to keep your skin hydrated, sheet masks are your best friend. You’ve probably seen them in every Korean beauty store in the market. There are various masks that bring you different benefits like moisture, hydration, plumpness, brightening, and anti-aging. It is said that sheet masks are super effective because as the sheet rests on your face, it forces the antioxidants and vitamins to enter your skin. It also helps locking the nutrients in so your skin will be brighter, softer, and more hydrated. Simply stick it on, wait for about 10-20 minutes, peel it off, and you’re done. It is recommended that you use a sheet mask 2-3 times a week.
Fourth, aside from skincare products, there is a brand new beauty clinic called Skinthestic, which has advanced and modern tools and technology. They just recently released their Action II phase that allows women to have glowing skin in an instant without any downtime. Their Action II phase features non-invasive technology that helps minimizing pores and removing any post-pimple scarring and any dead skin cells, eventually leaving you with a glowing fresh face.
What’s unique about this process is that it only takes 10 minutes and the process requires no pain at all. After you’re done, you will experience a bit of redness but the results of the process can be seen within 2 days. At Skinthestic, you’ll be able to try a variety of skincare processes that are being done directly by professional beauticians. This aesthetic practice fits any busy woman who doesn’t want any distraction stopping her day.
