If you're a makeup enthusiast who believes in religiously scanning skincare aisles at beauty stores, you know how Korean products are ruling the stores RN. We all are curious to know (and steal!) the secret to get glowing, youthful skin.
Here are some Korean hacks for your skin and make up quick-fix:
Who knew the cheapest way to set your make up is by "diving" in cold water? To stop the makeup from melting in the sweltering heat, all you need to do is apply a layer of powder over a full face of makeup and submerge your face in cold water for 15-30 seconds. It results in a velvety smooth makeup that lasts all day.
This drink is huge in Korea. Barley tea is a nutty flavored drink that's rich in antioxidants and helps to protect skin. It is also good for your overall well-being.
Hydrated skin is happy skin
Koreans are quite particular about keeping their complexions hydrated. And that's why they are big on facial essences. Essences have a thin consistency that easily seeps into the skin. This helps lock in moisture and makes the skin absorb all its goodness.
This step is a must as it's an easy way to show your skin some love. If you don't have the time to put on a sheet mask while sipping barley tea, a sleeping mask might be your thing. It works hard on the skin's cellular level to reduce dullness. This mask works hard for you while you doze off and dream about shoes and fancy handbags.
