Hydration, hydration, hydration! This is what the Korean skincare is all about. Each step of the skin routine focuses on nourishing skin and providing humectants which will keep your skin healthy and hydrated.
Surprisingly, it is not that simple to keep the skin balanced and nicely hydrated. As the heat is here we want to spend as much time outdoors as possible. All of a sudden dry patches start appearing on the face which requires soothing and the right skincare. Recently we received a number of questions about the best moisturising and hydrating routine during summer that will be fast and limited to only a few products. Therefore, on top of the k-beauty summer essentials, in this post, we give you some extra inspiration on a quick skin routine.
It is always recommended to use only lukewarm water for washing the face. Using direct hot water on the skin impacts natural oils of the skin and disturbs retaining the moisture. Use the cleansers with light texture such as Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser.
Hydrating toners are overlooked by many in Western countries but not by the Korean women. For glowing and hydrated skin, they use toners. They help reduce pores, hydrate and prepare the skin for the next products to be applied.
Hydrate your skin with a hydrating sheet mask at least twice a week. This will not only help in hydrating the skin but also in removing excess of oils and other impurities. This is a must-do to improve the appearance of your skin.
