The secrets behind the highly valued Korean Skincare Routine

  • por

In South Korea, skin care has had an important place in culture since its early days. For this reason, nowadays, the Korean cosmetic industry is considered one of the most expert. Next, you will learn about the secrets behind the highly valued Korean skincare routine, through its origins, ingredients, and tips for maintaining healthy skin.

One of the most important principles of Korean skin care is prevention, the element that differentiates it from Western beauty and care techniques. In South Korea, prevention begins with parents educating their children about the importance of keeping the face clean, hydrated and protected from the sun’s rays.

As a result, the Korean cosmetic industry focuses on the use and constant search for natural components that bring effective and innovative products to life. Among the most important ingredients are:

Green tea

A key ingredient for acne treatment thanks to its antibacterial properties, which also reduce irritation, redness and swelling.

Hyaluronic acid

A natural substance responsible for retaining water, helping our skin to stay hydrated.

Vitamins E, A and C

Vitamin E reduces UV damage, Vitamin A prevents breakouts and helps to heal, and Vitamin C stimulates collagen production.

It should also be mentioned that the application of these ingredients is accompanied by certain tricks that characterize and make the Korean skin care routine one of the most effective:

The double cleansing

Understanding the concept that water and oil repel each other, this procedure consists of first applying an oil cleanser for impurities that contain this same component, and then applying a water-based cleaner to remove dirt such as sweat and dust.

The slap technique

One of the most characteristic habits of Koreans when applying a product to the face. This consists of giving small slaps to your face to increase blood circulation and firm up the muscles of the face.

Over sun protection

The Korean cosmetic industry not only focuses on developing the best sunscreens, but also on including components of these in beauty products. In this way, ensuring greater and longer-lasting protection.
