6 Korean Beauty Tips for Glowy, Flawless-Looking SkinJanuary 22, 2021
By now, you’re likely well aware of the wonders of Korean beauty. The category has given us sheet masks, cushion compacts, the glass skin trend and so much more. No longer just a trend, we’ve fully integrated K-beauty and the beauty philosophies that come with it into our routines and our skin has never looked better. Whether you’re new to the concept or are looking to feed your obsession, read on for six tips for incorporating K-beauty-inspired products into your daily regimen.
The double-cleanse method of using an oil-based cleanser to remove makeup, excess sebum and sunscreen, followed by a water-based cleanser to get rid of impurities like dirt and sweat, is a must in the world of K-beauty. Try it with the Shu Uemura Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil and the CeraVe Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser.
Mask Before You Moisturize
Try a Sleeping Pack
Don’t Skimp on SPF
Sunscreen is the most important product you can apply for healthy, youthful skin. In Korea, you can find an endless selection of innovative sunscreens with elegant formulas that you actually want to apply. Stateside, we’re finally getting more options to choose from. One of our favorite formulas is the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Tinted Mineral Sunscreen for Face SPF 50 because it melts into skin without a white cast and blurs imperfections.
Get Flawless-Looking Skin With Cushion Compacts
Cushion foundations go on as light as a feather so you avoid cakey makeup and get a second-skin look. They often feature formulas that are hydrating, have SPF protection and give skin a glow. Check out the Mamonde Brightening Cover Watery Cushion Foundation SPF 50 for just that.
Try a Popsicle Pout
A gradient, semi-stained lip is the look, according to K-beauty. To get it, apply concealer or foundation on the outer rim of the lips and then dab a lip tint like the Lancôme Juicy Shaker on the middle of your lips. Just like that, you’ve got a just-bitten look.
