4 Korean Skincare Tricks to Get That Other-Worldly Glow in a Jiffy

Because K-beauty never lets you down.




If you're a make-up enthusiast who believes in religiously scanning skincare aisles at beauty stores, you know how Korean products are ruling the stores RN. We all are curious to know(and steal!) the secret to get glowing, youthful skin.

Here are some Korean hacks for your skin and make-up quick-fix:

1. Jamsu

The cheapest way to set your make-up is by 'diving' in cold water! Who knew?!

To stop the make-up from melting in sweltering heat, all you need to do is apply a layer of powder over full face of makeup and submerge your face in cold water for 15-30 seconds. It results in a velvety smooth makeup that lasts long.

2. Barley tea

This drink is huge in Korea. Barley tea is a nutty flavored drink that's rich in antioxidants and helps to protect skin. It is also good for overall well-being.

3. Hydrated skin is happy skin

The Koreans are quite particular about keeping the skin hydrated. And that's the reason why they are big on facial essences. Essences are of thin consistency and seep into the skin easily. That keeps the moisture locked in and makes the skin absorb all its goodness.

4. Masking

The skin TLC is a must. Masking is an easy way to show your skin some love. If you don't have the time to put on sheet mask while sipping barley tea, overnight mask is your thing. It works on the skin cell level and help to reduce dullness. This mask works hard for you while you doze off and dream about shoes and lip glosses. WHAT? You don't get such dreams? It can't be just us.
