The Art of Korean Skincare: Beginner’s Guide to K-Beauty

6 months ago 71

In recent years, Korean skincare has captured a significant market in beauty and lifestyle. We can find every other skincare influencer recommending Korean products. Even in K-dramas, you cannot help but notice the magical effect of K-beauty. So, what is the secret of Korean skincare? Let us uncover in this Beginner’s Guide to K-Beauty.

Korean skincare is known to use special ingredients that make the skin glowy and healthy. Some of them are ginseng, snail mucin, birch juice, and mugwort. Ginseng is known for its anti-ageing, anti-pigmentation and plumping properties. Snail Mucin protects the skin barrier, helps with acne breakouts, improves hydration, and rejuvenates the skin. Bitch juice also helps with the skin’s nourishment and contains antioxidants. It is also an excellent addition to your winter skincare routine. Lastly, mugwort is a spice that has been found to have anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe rashes as well.

These are some of the famous ingredients from Korean skincare you should look out for. Some Indian brands also integrate these ingredients into their products because of their beneficial properties. We have also created a list of some of the authentic and original K-beauty products that you can add to your routine- 

The Art of Korean Skincare – A Guide to K-Beauty:

1. Zeroid Foaming Cleanser

The first step towards Korean skincare (well, all the skincare) is a cleanser. Zeroid Foaming Cleanser is made from botanical and orange extracts. It has hyaluronic acid and ceramides. Cleansers are used to pull off the dust from your face that may harm the skin, but they are known to make your skin dry, especially during winter. However, K-beauty comes to your rescue because this cleanser maintains the pH balance of your skin because of the ceramides. 

2. Then I Met You Birch Milk Refining Toner
