On a fundamental level, skincare is supposed to keep your skin healthy while making you look your best. But lately, it’s become more than that, providing people with meditative moments that helps to connect them with their bodies.
Koreans have understood this for a long-time, looking beyond the purely aesthetic elements, and finding the emotional benefits that self-care also offers.
Hybrid Skin Care
South Koreans take their skincare routines seriously but they also know not to overdo it, and concentrate on pared-down, minimalist routines that are more effective, while using versatile treatments.
This is what experts and k-beauty gurus like to call ‘hyphenates’ or ‘hybrid’ skincare.” So instead of using a 12-step routine, this kind of skincare focuses on fewer products that can multitask.
Taupe Eye Shadow
Taupe is meant to serve as a reliable transition shade for most skin tones, providing a good foundation for all eyeshadow. But now this color is being worn all by itself, and the idea is quite brilliant.
A bit of taupe framing your eyelids can give you a dramatic look while also being quite effortless in its application.
We all know that good circulation is key to keep your skin looking healthy, which is why Koreans pay so much attention to how they apply their skin care products.
With light massages and circular motions, you don't need to get a facial to get these benefits, there are many DIY tutorials on the internet to show how and you won't even have to leave your house.
Coffee Body Scrubs
We all know that some people can’t live without their daily cup of coffee, well, turns out there's more than one way to get your daily dose of caffeine.
Coffee grounds can now be used on your skin to gently exfoliate and polish it to remove those unwanted dead skin cells for a smoother and hopefully softer feel.
