​Why K-beauty cotton pads are must-haves in your skin routine?

Discover the transformative power of Korean cotton pads - the secret weapon and must-have addition to any effective Korean skincare routine. Uncover the magic behind these amazing pads and see for yourself the incredible benefits they can offer for your skin. So why settle for ordinary skincare when you can take it to the next level with the game-changing power of Korean cotton pads?

Why are cotton pads used in Korean skin-care routine?

You may have already observed that the Korean approach to skincare is centred around being gentle with your skin. This is because taking extra care is crucial to prevent any potential irritation.

That's why using cotton pads is considered one of the most hygienic ways to apply skin-care products. They ensure a clean application and can remove any excess residue effectively. Cotton pads also enable Korean face toners, exfoliators and skin essences to be applied more evenly and efficiently.

However, it's essential to choose the right cotton pad to avoid any adverse effects on sensitive skin, as the wrong type can be counterproductive to your overall skincare routine.

What is the difference between Korean cotton pads and Western ones?

To ensure your skin doesn't negatively react to a cotton pad, a simple tip is to use a well-soaked pad.

In the UK and Europe, the rounds or squares available at pharmacies drugstores are often absorbent, but have a tendency to leave lint behind on the skin. This lint can soak up moisture, leaving your skin dry and rough, while also attracting debris and dirt that can irritate the skin's surface and clog pores. Unfortunately, these pads can also feel scratchy and fall apart easily, which is less than ideal.

Contrarily, the cotton pads offered by Korean beauty brands boast a more robust texture that feels smoother and gentler on the skin than the traditional cotton pads. Typically made with untreated and unbleached cotton, these pads help minimize skin irritation. They do not pill and are exceptionally soft, ensuring that they do not absorb all of the product.

Moreover, Korean cotton pads can serve a more extensive role in your skincare routine. You can use them to pat your face dry, or create a personalized sheet mask.
