10 Steps Korean Skin Care Routine
Hello Everyone. Hope you are really well. Today I tell you about Korean beauty secret. Why Koreans are looking 20+ when they are in 35+? From their skin, you can’t imagine their age. They look gorgeous. They follow 10 steps whereas Indian’s are following hardly 5 steps. We think that cleansing, toning, moisturizing are enough for our skin whereas Korean’s do oil cleansing, water-based cleanser, scrubbing, toning, essence, serum, sheet mask, eye cream, moisturizer or sunscreen.
I really love Korean skin, so I tried DIY Korean products for 2 weeks. Trust me this gives a very nice glow and clear skin. Today I tell you about that diy which I used.
Korean products are very expensive. For normal people, they can’t effort it. In the market you can get many products but why we go for that expensive product whereas we can easily make it at home. Let start making and how can we use and store this product.
10 Steps Korean Skin Care Routine
In Korean beauty regime at first, they used an oil cleanser. For this oil-cleanser take one-teaspoon of coconut oil (if you want you can use sesame oil, olive oil) then add one drop tea-tree essential oil(which helps to fight any-bacteria on your skin), one drop lemon-essential oil(which helps to brighten skin) mixed it very well. Apply all over your face and neck then gently massage it with fingers in an upward circular motion for a minute then wipe off with the cotton pad.
After oil-cleaner our skin not clear properly so we go for a water-based cleanser to clear leftover oil or impurities on our skin. For making water-based cleanser we need 1 tea-spoon Multani-mitti, 1 tea-spoon Aloe-vera gel, 3-4tea-spoon water (for best result you can use rice water) mixed it very well. You can make it a liquid consistency. You can store it in your refrigerator for one week. Take some solution on your palm apply a thin layer on your skin let it dry properly. Then wash-off with plain water.
After water-based cleanser, our skin is clear and ready for the next step which is exfoliation.
In Korean skincare routine rice or rice water take an important part. They use this it for skin and hair both.
For exfoliation, we take some rice flour. Take a tomato slice then add some rice flour over on it then gently massage all over your skin. Tomato is great for remove sun tan and brightens up our skin. And rice flour helps to remove blackheads, whiteheads.
I give you another option to take one teaspoon boiled oats, half tea-spoon coconut milk, half tea-spoon plain curd. Mixed this really well. Apply this all over your face gently massage. This is also a great scrub.
As per your choice you can use any one scrub.
After scrubbing they use multiple times toner(Take a spray bottle, put on in some rose water, store in the refrigerator. Then spray all over your face. Let it sit for 1 min again spray. In this way you can spray 5 times). You can use either rose water or rice water.
After toning, you can use essence. The essence is lighter than serum. For make an essence take one pouch of green tea put it on one cup warm water. Let it cool for 5min.
After cool down transfer it an empty spray bottle. After toning applies it all over your face.
The sixth step is applying the serum. For serum take 2teaspoon aloe-vera gel, one vitamin e capsule, 2-3drops glycerine, lastly 2tea-spoon rose water. Mixed it really well.
When essence completely absorbs on to your skin then apply this serum.
The sheet mask is very very important for a Korean girl. The alternative day they apply the sheet mask.
The sheet mask is very expensive. Why we waste money on this. Make it home. Take some slices of cucumber, some slices of watermelon then blend it very well. After blending squzze out all the juice from the fruits. Take a compressed sheet mask(very easily available online) put it on the juice. Take it on the refrigerator for 5-10min.
Then put it on the face let it sit for 15-20min not more than that. Then remove it.
The eighth step is applying eye cream.
For this take one-teaspoon aloe-vera gel, one vitamin e capsule. Mixed it well. Then apply it all over your eyes.
Lastly, moisturize your skin. It is very important. Its protect skin from the outer layer.
For making moisturizer you need soaked 2-3 almonds overnight. In the morning crushed and extract juice from them. Then add half-teaspoon lemon juice, half-teaspoon thick curd and half-teaspoon coconut milk. Mixed this very well.
Apply all over your face. Leave it for 30min then wash off. If you want to leave it overnight.
In the morning you get brighter skin.
After all the product application lastly but most important step to apply a good amount of sunscreen. This step is very important because if you don’t protect your skin from UV ray this damage your skin. And your skin looks so much dull and tan prone.
Please use paraben free, cruelty-free, mineral oil free sunscreen which doesn’t harm your skin.
If you want you can use Good Vibes Sunscreen. I write a review on this. Please check this out.
