5 Korean Beauty Tips To Know | Clozette

When it comes to achieving that sought after dewy, white skin that seems to glow from within, the Koreans have it down pat. So If you're looking to get the same results for your skin, here are a few beauty tips to implement into your own beauty regimen.


--------------------------


Tip #1: Layering



While many have come to rely on those all-in-one products, nothing beats the nourishing effects of product layering as it allows you to mix-and-match the exact products to use on your face based on your skin's needs. Follow this tried and test layering order: toner, essence, serum, moisturiser, facial oil, SPF, eye cream. Remember to take a break between each layer to let the product fully absorb into your skin.
Tip #2: Hydration



Hydration is key to get your skin looking plump and dewy. Aside from upping your water intake, take it a step further with a hydrating facial mist to spray all over your face. It's a great product to throw into your bag for an instant complexion refresher through the day. Look for one that works well even when sprayed over makeup.


Tip #3: Double Cleansing



The key to clear skin: keeping it clean. So at the end of the day, be sure to do a thorough double cleanse of your face. Essentially, this process involves first cleaning your face with an oil-based makeup remover (even if you're not wearing makeup). Oil-based products break down makeup and dirt a lot better without drying out your face. Wipe it all away with a gentle cloth before following up with a foam cleanser to wash away the oil.


Tip #4: What's Your Essence?



Essences are a big deal in Korea, from whitening, toning, to anti-aging essences, they've got them all. The beauty of this product is in its ability to absorb quickly and thoroughly into the skin, in a manner that outperforms serums and creams. This makes it a great first step to any beauty routine, packing a whole lot of skincare benefits. Plus point: it is also relatively low-maintenance. Just press it gently over you face, let it dry, and proceed with your usual routine.


Tip #5: Sheet Masks



Face masks are all the rage in Korea and beyond. It gives your skin a good'ol spa-like boost in the comfort of your home. These little wonders are packed full of serums that deliver a quick hydrating boost for when your skin is tired and sallow. When you're anticipating a big event in the week, go ahead and plop these on your face every single day. Your skin will thank you for it. In cases when you just want a quick pick-me-up, a sheet mask session twice a week is sufficient.

Makeup Palettes



by fifiliciousify


No matter how short a trip may be, sometimes you still get this urge to want to bring your entire collection of makeup along with you. Don't. Not only will you not use everything throughout your trip, but it also takes up space in your luggage. Opt for a select number of makeup palettes instead. Bonus points if you customize a travel-friendly palette to store your blusher, bronzer, powder, and eyeshadows.

Weather Appropriate Attire



by SheraneTeo


Here is why you shouldn't be carrying loads of makeup along with you: precious luggage space. Whether you're heading off to a colder climate or to the beach, aim to bring a variety of outfits that can adapt to any weather changes. After all, just because it's cold now in San Francisco doesn't mean it won't be warm up in a few days; and a summery beach day can easily turn into a cold, wet one. The best item to pack: cardigans and light sweaters. They're easy to pull on and off depending on the weather. 



Skincare

Just because you're taking a break from life and going off on an amazing travel adventure doesn't mean your skincare regiment needs to take a break either. Bring along your favourite skincare line in a travel-friendly size to keep your skin looking flawless and gorgeous for your travel photos. If you have a long flight ahead of you, pack a serum, moisturiser, and facial mist in your handbag to keep your skin from drying out.



Comfortable Shoes



by JodyYtLiu


Most of the time, travel = lots and lots and lots of walking. There will always be places to see and even more new places to shop. So keep your footwear comfortable and fuss-free; and unless you're anticipating loads of fancy dinners, feel free to leave your sky-high heels at home. Opt instead for comfortable flats or wedges (if you absolutely must wear heels). Your feet will thank you later.
