Korean Skincare Routine: It’s no secret that Korean beauty trends changed the skincare game and made us all strive for that perfect, smooth glass skin and glowing complexion. So we’ve got a routine for you that’s amazing on the face and easy on the pockets because all you need is a few DIY ingredients!
Start with an oil-based cleanser to help dissolve oily impurities and any left-over makeup. You can use olive oil, jojoba oil or sweet almond oil on a cotton pad to gently get rid of any gunk inside your pores. These oils are gentle on your skin and won’t clog your pores either.
Instead, they will effectively clean under the surface of your skin where a water-based cleanser might not be able to penetrate! Now you can move on to a water-based cleanser to remove the oil residue and dirt!
All you need is a dollop of honey mixed with a few drops of water or milk as your very own simple as can be cleanser! Apply it to your face in round movements and then wash it off with some warm water.
Honey will keep your skin nourished while also getting rid of any impurities! Mix together a spoon of gram flour with a spoon of Multani Mitti, take a little of this mixture in your hands, and add a few drops of water to form a paste.
Now you can use it to exfoliate your face. The gentle and fine granules of the powders help to scrub away any dead skin cells without leaving your face feeling raw or irritated! This single ingredient step is a must-do!
You can use either apple cider vinegar, green tea, or rose water soaked on a cotton pad or sprayed directly onto your face. The toner will help balance your skin’s ph level, tighten your pores, and leave your skin feeling refreshed! Help your skin soak in as much moisture as possible with a DIY sheet mask.
Mix together 2 tbsps of glycerin, 2 tbsp of chamomile tea, and a couple of drops of lavender essential oil. Pour this onto a compressed sheet mask and let your face absorb the goodness for 15-20 minutes. The glycerin will help hydrate your skin, chamomile tea repairs dry patches and lavender soothe irritation.
The combination of these ingredients will leave you feeling dewy and supple! Now it’s time to lock the moisture in. For a gel moisturizer simply apply some aloe vera gel to your skin and pat it in gently.
Go for an ingredient like jojoba oil for some luxurious oil-based hydration or try a small scoop of shea butter for a heavy, creamier moisturizer. For an under eye gel that will lighten dark circles and banish fine lines all you need is 1 tbsp of almond oil, a few drops of vitamin E oil, and a tsp of aloe vera gel.
The almond and vitamin E oil are hero ingredients in reducing signs of aging and the aloe vera gel will help provide some extra hydration. For more skincare routine, stay tuned with WittyScoop.com
