This Could Be The Next Big Thing In Skincare | Clozette

A mainstay in most K-Beauty skincare routines but have yet to reach cult status in more western routines, Ampoules have been our best skincare friend for a while now. A high-potency booster for your skin, an ampoule is somehow like a serum but with more things to offer. It is made up of highly concentrated active ingredients that adapt to different skin types and improves the skin’s condition twice as fast as a normal skincare product. 

Want to know more? We’ve listed down the need-to-know facts about ampoules and why you should totally add it to your skincare routine. 

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

It’s a skin pick-me-up



Ampoules are designed to be potent, giving your skin a quick pick-me-up whenever you need it. So whenever your skin is feeling dull and dehydrated, add an ampoule to your nighttime skincare routine and wake up to revitalised skin in the morning. 


It's great for lazy skincare days



Ampoules can replace any skincare treatment you use on your face. So on days when you're feeling lazy to go through your entire routine, just grab an ampoule--like the DCS Nutriderm Ampoule. It has excellent anti-oxidant properties that fights free radical damage, prevents wrinkle formation, and gives the skin a supple glow--working its magic like a serum and a moisturiser combined.


It can be worn under makeup



Certain ampoules are great even under makeup, somehow making your makeup last longer while nourishing your skin through the day. One example would be DCS Aquaderm Super Aqua Ampoule that keeps the skin more hydrated, controls sebum, gives the skin extra moisture, tightens pores, and overall makes the skin more radiant while making sure that your makeup sits in place.


It saves you time and money



We have to admit that the road to clearer and healthier skin can sometimes be a bit heavy on the pockets. This is why we truly recommend investing on ampoules. Aside from the 'once or twice a week only' usage, it can also replace your other supplements and can make your skincare routine more streamlined without sacrificing results.

The humidity levels are a little bit higher and the sun is shining brighter – yep, summer is definitely here. And because the temperatures are rising every day, our winter beauty and skincare routines should adjust and adapt to the weather changes too!

While summer allows us to get a gorgeous tan and warm up our bodies, beauty messes such as melting foundation, frizzy hair, sweat, and so much more can happen too.

So to survive this heat wave and stay chic during your summer vacation, keep scrolling down for our 5 favourite summer beauty hacks!

DIY Tinted Moisturiser

The best tinted moisturisers, those that are sweatproof and transferproof, usually cost a ton. So if you want to pinch a few pennies this season, why not make your own instead! All you will need is your favourite foundation and moisturiser, combine equal parts of each, mix, and that's it!

And the best part?  You can control how much coverage you want  – for fuller coverage, add more foundation; but for less, add more moisturiser. Easy, right?

Use ice cubes as a primer

Primers help blur imperfections, fill in pores, hydrate the skin, and more. But when it’s sweltering hot outside, adding another layer of makeup just doesn’t seem practical. So if you want to blur imperfections, tighten your pores, and hydrate and soften your skin, use ice cubes instead! Ice cubes help reduce redness, tighten pores, and stimulate blood circulation in your face, leading it to be more hydrated and softer! And a bonus is that it’ll cool your body temperature too, so it will feel like you’re getting a cooling facial!


Tame frizz with coconut oil

Because humidity levels are higher during summer, most of us are going to have frizzy hair (eek!). Luckily, we can tame it by using organic coconut oil! Use it as a hair mask by combing it through your hair after shampooing and conditioning it, letting it sit for 15-20 minutes, rinsing it off, and letting it air dry. Or, take a small amount of coconut oil, rub it in between your hands, and gently apply it on damp hair. This will help you avoid putting too much and creating a greasy mess! 


Set your makeup and refresh your skin with face mists

Remember how melting foundation, mascara, blush, and so much more can occur during summer? Well, to prevent all of that, you should set your makeup with a face mist – a 2-in-1 product that cools and soothes your skin, and prolongs the wear of your makeup!


Keep your oil at bay with tissues

Tissues are a big must-have for any bag because they can clean up any mess that might occur while you’re out. But did you know that they can work as oil blotting sheets too? Yup, now you don’t have to bring a separate pack of blotting sheets and save more space in your purse!
