What makes Korean skincare so popular?
When we look at some Western skincare brands, many of them are guilty of producing products simply for generating money. With little care and value put into these products, they hold little worth in the eyes of the customer, and with more people wanting brands to step up and produce products that actually make a difference to their skin, the pressure is on.
Korean skincare is where things have taken a turn, with many brands wanting to have meaning behind what they produce. Whilst they naturally want ROI on their skincare products, they also want their products to make a real different to their users, and this is something Korean skincare brands are getting right.
As we all know, Korean skincare focuses on keeping things natural, light and glowy, and with the right skincare at the core of your routine, you can achieve fantastic results even when you’re on a budget.
Think about your cleansers
The start of all skincare routines should be a good cleanser. We recommend introducing an oil cleanser and water cleanser, but if you’re just starting out, we recommend THE FACE SHOP Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing Oil. This incredibly popular cleanser is a great place to start as it removes all impurities, makeup, sun cream and is packed full of rich antioxidants to give a bright and fresh complexion.
Find the right moisturiser
Sounds obvious but it’s vital that you find the right moisturiser to give your skin hydration it deserves. Many people love what ETUDE HOUSE Soon Jung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream does to their skin. This is a must-have for those with sensitive skin and it’s the best-selling hypoallergenic cream around. Formulated with 93% naturally derived ingredients that work to balance, repair, hydrate and soothe the skin, you’ll love what this cream has to offer.
Never neglect your sun screen
We’ve talked about this in the past, but it’s important that everyone knows just how vital it is to regularly apply sun cream. Protecting the skin from the sun, even when indoors, is the best way we can honour our skin and give it the love it deserves. The COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++ is a must-have as it protects the skin without having that sticky residue that so many other brands have.
