Try these K-beauty techniques for a flawless glow

Anyone who loves anything beauty and skincare knows just how amazing Korean beauty products are. Those people are obsessed with glass-like skin and their products ensure that you end up with that type of skin too. But, no matter which product you use, unless you apply it the right way it isn't going to be able to give you the results you're looking for. And that's where K-beauty techniques step in. Not only do Koreans use some amazing beauty and skincare products but they also pay attention to the way they use them. Here are some K-beauty techniques that will ensure you end up with a flawless glow.


02/8Double cleanse

Double cleanse

Cleansing twice is the best way to ensure that every trace of gunk is removed. Dissolve makeup and pollutants first with a cleansing oil, then rinse at the sink with a cream cleanser, if you have normal to dry skin, or a gel formula, if you’re oily, to break up any dirt and oil still lurking.


03/8Sun protection

Sun protection

No self-respecting Korean woman skips this step, because there’s zero point in doing the moves above if you’re going to let UV damage eff it all up. Using a broad-spectrum physi­cal blocker daily can stop a host of concerns (hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, even skin cancer) in their tracks.


04/8Make a skincare cocktail

Make a skincare cocktail

Double up on serums, as it allows you to address multiple skin concerns. It’s essentially layering our serums or cocktailing your serums, based on your skin’s unique needs. We find this really exciting because it addresses the fact that most people have a variety of skin concerns. To double up, apply a few drops of each serum into the palm of your hand and pat into the skin.


05/8Cleanse, cleanse and cleanse!

Cleanse, cleanse and cleanse!

Use a mild cleanser on your skin to wash your face and while you're at it, make sure that you at least cleanse for a full minute and only in an upward motion. Once done, instead of rubbing your face with water, splash water on your face (yes, like they do in commercials). This will help prevent tugging on your skin.


06/8Don't use a towel

Don't use a towel

You might not be aware of this but towels can cause a lot of unnecessary friction on your face. So, instead of a towel, just use a soft cloth to pat your skin dry and let the rest of your face dry on its own. Slightly damp skin can help soak in the moisture better too.


07/8Use facial mists instead of toners

Use facial mists instead of toners

More often than not we end up using toners to help keep our skin looking plump and moist. However, a facial mist can work a lot better than a toner at making your skin hydrated and soft. It immerses deep into the skin to give you a beautiful and radiant glow.


08/8Pat your skin, don't rub

Pat your skin, don't rub

As we mentioned earlier, rubbing your skin is a big no-no. What you need to do is pat all your skincare products into your skin. It'll help increase blood circulation and will also ensure that the products get absorbed into your skin with ease.
