Korean beauty routine isn’t just confined to the geographical boundaries of Korea but is now gaining popularity all around the world. More is always more; that’s is one of the Korean beauty trends these days, and we are digging it! These tips are not only easy but affordable. Even if you do not have enough time, you can achieve gorgeous-looking skin by following these steps daily. Consistency is the key, my friend!
Here is the complete Morning and Night Korean Beauty Routine.
The 8-Step Morning Routine
I know 8-steps seem like a lot, but it is entirely worth it! Your morning routine shouldn’t just include washing your face with a cleanser or face wash, but it is so so important to wake your skin up according to the Korean beauty standards. And how are we going to do it? Well, with the help of these steps given below!
#1. Wash your Face with Water
Yes, you heard me. The first thing to do when you wake up in the morning is to splash your face with water. It is known to make your skin feel refreshed and also removes any impurities from your face that might have settled over the night. It also helps to keep your skin hydrated.
#2. Apply Toner to your Face
After washing off the dirt and impurities, apply toner on your face. Pour it on your palm and pat it lightly all over your face. You can also dab it in a cotton swab and apply it on your face. A toner helps balance the pH level of the skin and also ensures that the other products get absorbed better.
Essence is a mix of serum, moisturizer, and toner. It is an essential part of the Korean beauty routine. It hydrates and nourishes the skin cells, therefore preparing your skin for the next step. Just pour two-three drops on your palm and gently press your hands against your face. It is legit one of the best Korean beauty secrets for flawless skin!
#4. Apply Ampoule
Ampoules also come in the category of serums and essences. However, ampoules have a high concentration of active ingredients and come in a glass bottle with droppers. With the help of a dropper, apply a few drops on your face and apply it all over your face with your fingers.
#5. Apply Serum
Serums address your skin’s issues and are best known for the anti-aging benefits. They reduce the appearance of pigments and blemishes, dryness, fine lines, and various other skin issues. You are also required to use a pea-sized amount of serum and press it all over your face gently.
#6. Under Eye Cream
The area that surrounds your eyes is very delicate, and trust me, regular face creams and serums aren’t always enough. This area needs to stay hydrated and protected throughout the day. Just take a small amount of it and apply it from the inner corner of your eye to the outer.
Just after this step, I suggest you use Mello Rose Quartz Face Roller. It will heal and rejuvenate your skin in the perfect way. To add more to its benefits, place it in the fridge right when you wake up. It is the ultimate hack to de-puff your eyes in the morning.
After you are done applying an under eye cream, apply a sufficient amount of moisturizer on your face. It not only adds to the nourishment of the skin but will also keep it hydrated all day long.
Just be mindful of your skin type.
#8. Save yourself from the harmful UV Rays
Protecting the skin from the UV rays is a must. Even when there’s no sun outside, I suggest you layer your face with sunscreen. It prevents fine lines and wrinkles, sunburn, tanning, and dark spots. Once you have completed the above-mentioned steps, apply sunscreen.
It may seem lengthy, but the outcome will make others wish for a clear, radiant skin like yours! Now that we are done with the morning routine let’s see what the Korean beauty routine has in store!
The 10-Step Night Routine
After a long day, girls usually swing their bags on the couch and jump towards their bed and spend the rest of the time there only. Now, if you are one of them, do not complain about your skin looking so dull and tired! A nighttime skincare routine is super essential for gorgeous porcelain skin, no matter how old you are. To know more about the best skincare routine for the 30s, stay tuned because I have a lot of tea to spill in the next blog!
Here is the 10-step guide to help you attain a type of skin you always dream of.
#1. Use a Cleansing Oil to Clean your Face
Mind taking off the dirt, impurities, and sebum off your face? I know the answer. The cleansing oil binds itself with the dirt and makes it easy for you to clean your skin. Massage it all over your face and neck and then wipe it off with a cotton swab or wipe. Your make-up and dirt will come off your skin.
#2. Double Cleansing is the Key
Once you have removed all the dirt and make-up off your face with an oil cleanser, use a foaming cleanser to clean your face. Pour it on your palm and add water. Rub your palms together to generate lather and then apply it on your face. Gently clean your face and then rinse it off.
You can also use Mello’s Electric Facial Cleansing Brush for a more deep cleansing experience.
#3. Exfoliate Your Skin
Exfoliation helps to scrap the dead skin cells and impurities from your face and also evens out your skin tone. Not only this exfoliation also promotes cell regeneration.
For a deeper exfoliation experience, you can also try Mello’s Microdermabrasion System. Just make sure you use it every once in a while and not regularly.
#4. Apply Toner
Apply toner all over your face with the help of your hands just in the same way you did in the morning. Even during the night, a toner will help maintain the pH levels of your skin.
By now, you must be aware of what comes after a toner. An essence is required to keep your skin hydrated for the entire night; therefore, it is essential to include this step at night as well.
#6. Apply Ampoule
Right after hydrating your face with essence, apply a few drops of ampoule to your face and gently rub it so that it gets absorbed. The super-rich ingredients and active agents will help your skin regenerate and recharge throughout the night.
Different serums cater to different problems. So, apply a few drops of serum on your face and help the moisture look inside.
#8. Sheet Masks
Sheet masks have become essentially important these days. They are full of ingredients that contain essential agents for skin growth. Another plus point is that they provide hydration to every skin type while providing added benefits.
Here is the complete guide on the benefits of masks.
#9. Under Eye Cream to The Rescue!
Once your skin has absorbed the goodness of a sheet mask, it is time to pamper the eye area. Apply a small amount of under-eye cream to hydrate the delicate skin around your eyes.
Apply moisturizer at the end of the routine to seal all the ingredients throughout the night. It will help the skin soak up all nourishing products you have been using. Trust me; you will wake up with soft and radiant skin!
The Korean skincare routine is all about providing the right amount of ingredients to your skin. It may seem like a tiring task to do initially, but as you go on further, you shall notice the change in the appearance of your skin with these ancient Korean beauty secrets!
