These KOREAN SKINCARE SECRETS will give you amazing GLOWING, GLASS SKIN! | Beauty Around The World
You know beauty junkies like us are always on the hunt for new beauty tips and trends so we want to take you around the world to show you some of the best ones we’ve found! And today we’re going to Korea, the land of constantly trending skin care rituals, to find out their best kept beauty secrets! This odd Korean makeup hack to achieve a flawless base called Jamsu, is super weird but totally works.
First you need to prep your face with a primer, foundation & concealer. Next, layer your face with a generous amount of loose powder. Now take a bowl of ice-cold water & dip your powdered face in it thrice for 10 seconds each covering the sides of your face & the hairline too.
While the powder sets the makeup, the ice-cold water helps to lock it in making it matte and sweat proof. Once done, gently pat your face dry and apply the rest of your makeup for a smooth natural base.
This unbelievable viral K beauty hack is super effective & costs close to nothing. Slugging is a technique to achieve exquisitely glowing, healthy skin using petroleum jelly. The best way to do it is before going to bed.
After you’re done with your regular skincare routine, scoop out a generous amount of petroleum jelly and spread it evenly all over your face to form a thin layer. Petroleum jelly acts as a sealant by preventing any moisture loss.
Leave it overnight to see your skin transform. Having said that, this hack is great for dry or mature skin, but it’s not such a great idea for those with oily acne prone skin! We’ve heard of people doing crazy stuff in the name of beauty but this one beats them all! This K-beauty trend suggests applying 7 layers of toners on your skin for intense hydration.
Now it sounds simple but there is a technique to this & although it is time consuming it promises immediate results. After cleansing, choose a lightweight non-alcoholic toner that’s hydrating rather than pore tightening & for the first layer dab some on a cotton pad & swipe it across your face to remove any leftover grime & create a clean base for the next layers, letting it absorb before moving on to the next step.
For layers 2-7, you won’t need a cotton pad, just pour some toner on your palms and pat it onto your skin & neck. Remember to wait for the toner to absorb between each application for ultra dewy, plump skin.
Now you must have heard of cleansing, but learning from the Koreans, double cleansing is what builds a foundation for acne-free, healthy hydrated skin. It simply means cleansing your face with 2 types of cleansers.
First, use an oil-based cleanser, use a ready-made one or make your own with equal parts of a non comedogenic oil and castor oil. Then massage it on your face to remove waterproof makeup, sunscreen or excess sebum.
You don’t need to rinse afterwards, just wipe it off with a damp towel. Next, use a water-based cleanser & massage it on damp skin & then rinse to thoroughly remove any leftover gunk, oil & dirt. This Korean skin care routine will give you the most desired glass skin glow.
