But the using fermented products is also beneficial for skin and being practiced on large scale in the Korean beauty industry. Fermented products can be easily absorbed by the skin and largely suitable for sensitive, aging and dry skin. Kombucha and tea products are already quite famous.
If you haven't heard of it or tried it you are truly missing out. To practice act, first apply your base products (primer, foundation and concealer) and apply loose powder. Once you are done with these initial makeup routine steps, take a big bowl filled with ice cold water, and dunk your whole face into the water filled bowl for 15 to 30 seconds. This will keep your makeup stay put and matte for the whole day.
Slugging is yet another new skincare trend all the way from Korea. Not going to lie, it sounds a bit weird and skeptical but apparently it works. This one is not for those who have oily skin. The technique of slugging is quite simple, all you have to do is take a handful of Petroleum Jelly or Vaseline and drench your face with it before going to sleep. You can also use cold cream which contains petrolatum, but it should be in majority quantity. This is supposed to keep the water and moisture of skin locked in. It will be like getting up with new skin.
4. Minimalistic Routine
Yes, gone are days when you had to buy 20 different products for your daily skincare routine and go broke because of them. Korean Beauty industry is changing the old toxic skincare habits and combining several effective ingredients into one product to minimize the time given for skincare routine and the major source of demotivation in continuing that routine. CEO of The Beauty Wolf, Coco Park, told Vogue, “I’m seeing a big trend towards simplifying routines. Not that we’ve abandoned multi-step routines.”
5. Vitamin A Products
Vitamin A is a popular ingredient in several Korean Skincare Products especially with the rise of Retinol based products used to treat acne. Now that Covid-19 is not going anywhere and wearing masks is a normal routine, Maskne is on the rise and Vitamin A is a key ingredient in solving the problem.
