Skincare is something you do for your skin to give it the indulgent treatment it deserves. It can also be as simple as following a nightly routine to wake up to a glowing complexion every day. It’s something you should get used to, and it’s something you should do not just on special occasions.
The secret to a good Korean skin care regimen is consistency. Even if you only have 10 minutes to spare, you can still do the following:
Cleanse the Face Thoroughly
Your shower time can double as part of your skincare regimen if you cleanse your face while you’re letting your hair conditioner do its job. This means no time wasted, because you’re still in the shower anyway, but you’re letting your favorite cleanser remove the dirt and grime that may have accumulated on your face throughout the day. Just be careful when you rinse your hair so that the residue does not end up clogging your pores. It’s also advisable to wash your face with warm water to open up the pores and help you remove all the dirt. Finish with a cold rinse to lock in moisture.
Dab a Night Cream Under Your Eyes
You don’t need a complicated nighttime skincare routine as long as you target the most important areas of your face. For instance, if you’ve been having problems with your eyes and you notice signs of aging or under-eye bags, it might be a good time to start dabbing a night cream on this problem area. It only takes a minute to dab the product, and you can go to bed without worries that you will wake up looking like you visibly aged overnight.
Think you’re too young to be using a night cream? If you have a stressful job, you may need it more than a relaxed woman in her fifties. It’s never too early to care for your skin if you see that there’s a need for it.
Groom Your Eyebrows
Aside from using products that help beautify your skin, you also need to keep your features well-groomed to be satisfied with your look. Take five minutes of your time to groom your eyebrows and get rid of new growth that will ruin the carefully shaped arch you have. You can do this by plucking, waxing, or threading, depending on your expertise and tolerance for pain. If you’re in a rush and are noticing the new growth just now, you can also hide it using a concealer before you finish the rest of your makeup.
Moisturize Your Lips
When you’re going out, you apply your favorite lip product to look better and feel more confident in yourself. This should also be the same attitude you have when caring for your lips even when you’re just staying home. At night, before bed, apply your favorite lip balm to wake up to soft and moisturized lips. You can also apply a lip balm before you wear your favorite matte lipstick to prevent it from dying your lips. When you don’t have to deal with chapped lips often, you’ll thank yourself for the few minutes you spent on lip care.
No matter how much or how little time you have for skincare, you can do a lot to improve your beauty. Always remember to care for your skin properly to get the best results.
