Korean Beauty Hacks for Healthy-Looking Skin
Korean beauty culture isn't about products at its core, but about skin-preserving methods and techniques. Here are a few out of various Korean beauty hacks that would benefit your skin to achieve a younger look.
1. Give your face a steam massage
Whether you use the steam in your shower or a portable steam machine, it is always good to help relax not only your mind, but also your tired skin after a long day. We would recommend not only using circular motions with your fingers, but also tapping in rotating motions starting on the forehead, then the cheekbones, cheeks, and working down to the jawbone.

2. Exfoliate with a warm washcloth
Besides using exfoliating products in gel or scrub form, a warm washcloth can also be used to massage your face every day, using upward moving, circular strokes. This will help reduce and prevent wrinkles also.
3. Try charcoal facial sheet mask
Charcoal detoxes and exfoliates your skin effectively, and all you have to do is let the sheet sit on your face for 15 to 20 minutes while you relax.

4. Apply a facial essence between two layers of moisturizer.
Modern Korean women feel that essences are the key to sealing in all the goodies of your daily cleansing. Essences are mild, skin nutrient-filled solutions that hydrate your skin and are applied after cleansing. The next step is to add a serum, and then you can add your moisturizer for maximum skin elasticity and hydration.
We love essence from brands such as The History of Whoo, Missha, Cosrx.
5. Use sleeping mask for lips
Apply nutrient-rich lip oil treatments like butter onto your lips will actively help moisturize and exfoliate dead skin cells on your lips overnight. You will be amazed with the result once you wake up in the morning.
