Thanks to their advanced technology and successful advertisements, with K-Pop idols and K-Drama actresses, Korean beauty is now one of the leading voices in the skin-care and cosmetics industry. Somehow, they manage to look young and flawless no matter how old they are. But how do they do it? Well, let’s discover the secret behind these beautiful girls themselves.
They Follow the 10-Second Rule
Korean girls say that the skin becomes dehydrated right after we take a shower, so we need to apply our toners or moisturizers within 10 seconds after taking a shower. Their advice is to keep your skin-care products in the shower for easy access.
They Drink Barley Tea
Barley tea is pretty popular among Koreans; they feed their newborn babies with barley tea to help their skin and keep them healthy. Barley tea is rich in antioxidants which will help your skin, so make sure you have it in your kitchen.
They Bring Their Skin-Care Products to the Gym
Many Korean girls never forget to bring their cotton sheet masks when they’re at the gym because the pores in their skin have a chance to open up after the workout session. Luckily, there are so many types of Korean sheet masks in the U.S. and many other countries, and all you need to do is apply them regularly.
They Use BB Cream Over Foundations
When it comes to beauty, many Korean girls are always skin first and makeup second. When this is the case, they don’t really involve foundation in their makeup routines. Foundation covers up your face too much and doesn’t allow the skin to breathe. So Koreans prefer BB creams to give their skin a nice look and blur out their imperfections at the same time.
They Wash Their Face Multiple Times
Cleanliness is one of the keys to Korean beauty; they make sure their skin is clean from makeup at the end of the day. So, they do the “double-cleansing” session every day. This method is where they remove their makeup with a cleanser first, but they also wash their face with another cleanser to get a deep clean.
They Use Microfiber Towels
Korean girls know that harsh fabrics will harm their skin, so they prefer microfiber towels instead of ones with a rough cloth. This is especially the case for face towels, so their advice is to always use a microfiber or muslin towels to dry your face.
They Are Gentle with Their Face
Our faces are one of the most delicate parts of our body, therefore, we should pay the utmost attention to their care. Korean girls also know this, so they never rub their faces with a towel; instead, they pat it gently to avoid possible damage on their skin.
They Use Rice Water to Clean Their Face
Korean girls know the benefits of rice, so they take advantage of it by making their own rice water which helps their skin. All you need to do is soak your rice for 10-15 minutes and use its milky water to clean your face.
It feels like Korean girls have really got it down when it comes to skin health. So try out these tips and habits yourself and let us know how it goes!
