Korean girls are very meticulous about their skincare and many of them follow a very strict 9 step regime every single day. The result is that the ladies of Korea are renowned for their beautiful clear dewy complexions. You may not want to go as far as a strict 5 step regime but there is a certainly a lot we can learn from the Korean beauty techniques. So here are some of the best Korean beauty tips that will help you achieve healthy looking and glowing skin.
Slap Your Face
You might think that this sounds like strange advice but it’s really popular in Korea. Slapping your face after you have finished the rest of your skincare regime increases the blood circulation and it keeps the muscles firm.
Leaving makeup on overnight would be unthinkable in Korea because Korean girls are so meticulous about how they cleanse their skin. They use a double cleansing method every single night. Firstly they remove all their makeup using liquid cleanser and they use a natural oil to remove dirt and bacteria. Then they move on to stage 2 which is to rinse the face with warm water and then apply a foaming cleanser.
Exfoliating is another important part of Korean girls regular beauty routine. When you exfoliate the skin it removes the dead skin cells and lets the younger cleaner-looking cells show. Through it’s not something that we would suggest that you do every day though because it will leave you with red skin.
In Korea toner is used as the preparation for the remaining steps of the skincare regime. A toner gives the skin an initial boost of hydration that makes it easier for other products to be absorbed.
The 10-Second Rule
Finally one rule that a Korean women will never break is the 10-second rule. Whenever they take of shower or cleanse their face they will always apply toner within 10 seconds of finishing. The faster you get the toner applied the more moisture you lock into your skin and if you leave it for too long your skin will start to dehydrate. They then follow up with all the other steps in their skincare routine.
