In fact, sheet masks are slowly becoming my favorite beauty quick fix. They are simple to use and leave the skin incredibly soft in minutes.

Korean women follow a disciplined beauty routine which is the secret to their flawless skin. Although there is so much to learn from them, I have compiled a list of 5 Korean beauty secrets that we can easily incorporate into our daily routine. Interested? Keep reading to know more about the Korean Beauty Secrets you must know!

Facial Massage: While Korean women are known to use the best skincare products, they also lay a lot of emphasis on massages. Facial Massage is great for our skin, it improves circulation and tones our facial muscles. Regular massages add a glow to our skin and improve its texture. Not to mention, it helps in keeping the skin young and prevents wrinkles.  All you have to do is to apply some cream on your face and massage it into the skin. Use your knuckles and fingertips to put the right amount of pressure and allow the cream to sink in. This massage feels relaxing and is excellent for upgrading your beauty routine.

Double Cleansing:  Double Cleansing is a two-step cleansing process which involves the use of an oil cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser. Since oil is great for dissolving makeup and stubborn SPF, it lifts the impurities from the surface, The next step ensures that every remaining trace of impurity is removed and the skin gets a thorough cleanse. When followed regularly, double cleansing improves skin texture and appearance. It also prepares our skin for the next steps and allows the serum and moisturizer to work more effectively.

Essence: A part of Korean 10 step skincare routine, the essence is used right before the serum. It is lightweight and provides necessary hydration to the skin. Essense prepares the skin for the next steps and allows better absorption of the other products. It is loaded with active ingredients( like hyaluronic acid) that reach deep into the skin to nourish it. Essense tightens, brightens the skin and improves its health. However, it should be noted that while essence works wonders for dry skin, you can skip it if you have oily skin.

Sheet Mask: Sheet masks are everywhere! Your favorite beauty bloggers keep talking about its benefits and it seems like a quick fix to most of your skin worries. Korean women use a sheet mask every day to give a boost of active ingredients to their skin. Sheet masks provide ample moisture to the skin and keep it hydrated. In fact, they are the quickest way to add a glow to the skin. Sheet masks are easy to use, all you have to do is to place a mask sheet on your skin and leave it for 20 minutes. Massage your skin to allow the remaining serum to reach into your skin. Since they are simple to use and come in a travel-friendly packaging, sheet masks are a wonderful way of rejuvenating the skin when you are on a vacation.

Sheet Mask: Korean Beauty Secrets

Sleeping Mask: Since our skin repairs itself while we are fast asleep, it is the best time to provide it with some intense nourishment. Sleeping masks are perfect for use on the skin for this reason. These masks give Korean women glowing, radiant skin as soon as they wake up. Sleeping masks are the upgraded versions of your regular night creams that hydrate, brighten, repair skin damage and help in keeping it young.

5 Korean Beauty Secrets You Must Know

Diet: No beauty product can give you flawless skin if you do not follow a healthy diet. In fact, I won’t be exaggerating if I say that the diet Korean women follow is as effective as their skincare routine. It is rich in protein and vegetables. Khimchi, seaweed soup and barley tea are some of the most commonly consumed foods in Korea.

Since our skin is the largest organ in the body, it becomes important to give it the attention it needs. And it is no secret that we have a lot to learn from Korean women when it comes to skincare trends. They focus on overall health of the skin by consuming a healthy diet, pampering their skin with face massages and using the best products. Since it is not possible for everyone to follow an extensive skincare routine, I have focussed on the simplest and most effective Korean Beauty Tips in this post. These steps can be easily included in your beauty routine and can completely transform your skin.

    I’ve been obsessed with Korean beauty for the last few months! I follow some of the tips you listed here like the double cleansing, sheet masks and essence, but what I didn’t know was about the massages! I’ll definitely try. What I struggle the most with is with the diet though, I need to pay more attention to that.

    I’ve found that my diet effects the way my skin appears. When I am on a plant-base diet, my skin detoxes and my skin is glowing. When I add fast foods back into my diet, my skin suffers. I haven’t tried any Korean methods but I am definitely interested in the facial mask and oil/water treatment.

    I don’t know if I would use any of those. Although my daughter would really like using the sheet mask to take care of her face. And we definitely could do things to eat healthier to avoid some of the skin issues she is dealing with now.

    19 . Feb . 2018
  22. toastycritic

    Sounds like these are great tips. My daughter would be more into doing the face mask. But I think we could really do a lot to help with our diet. I do love Korean cooking but I would need to find things less spicy for my daughter.
