Best Korean Moisturizers For Dry Skin

Best Korean Moisturizers For Dry Skin

A lot of times people with dry skin think that more = moisture. So they pack layer after layer after layer of moisturizer on their skin, thinking it will bring hydration to super thirsty skin. That’s not the case. People with dry skin need to take a careful look at ingredients and formulas, using ones that are full of the nutrients, moisturizing elements, and rejuvenators that will efficiently replenish dry skin. Not sure where to start? Try some of these:   Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream According to Innisfree, the secret to this ultra moisturizer comes from a type of orchid on Korea’s Jeju Island that withstands the bitter island winters and blooms in early spring. So, too, can it help your skin withstand dry, cracked skin and emerge fresh. It’s also packed full of nutrients, so this is a great multi-purpose cream for people who also want to prevent fine lines and wrinkles or combat signs of aging like dark spots. SU:M37 Water Full Timeless Moisturizing Cream This is another one-two punch of both moisture and rejuvenation. Ingredients like bamboo water and hibiscus flowers gently moisturize, while red clover and gold-silver flowers help regenerate skin, give it a youthful glow,

Best Korean Moisturizers For Oily Skin

Best Korean Moisturizers For Oily Skin

Listen, oily skinners: I know it feels counterproductive to moisturize your skin. But you’ve gotta! Oily skin might product more sebum, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t need the nutrients, hydration, and replenishing that comes with frequent moisturizing. Luckily, the Koreans have figured out how to give skin all the benefits of hydration without any of the negative side effects, like breakouts, excess sebum, or tacky skin. With the use of ( maybe seemingly strange! ) ingredients like snail mucus and green tea, Korean beauty scientists have made major inroads in keeping oily skin happily hydrated without making it look like it’s spent the last two hours in a sweat lodge. Here are some options to get you started: Mizon All In One Snail Repair Cream Snail mucus is one of the most restorative products used in skincare. Oddly enough, it can help human skin regenerate and emerge looking younger and fresher in the same way that it helps snails regenerate. It’s also a favorite for people with oily skin, since it goes on feeling more like a super lightweight gel rather than a heavy moisturizer that will make you shine or create sebum. It’s light enough to wear under

Best Korean Beauty Products for Men

Best Korean Beauty Products for Men

There’s an often accepted but totally false idea that resonates through the worldwide beauty and skincare industry: it’s for women. It couldn’t be further from the truth, but here we are. The reasons why skincare products are marketed towards women could fill volumes, although we can save that for another post and simply consider this one a wake-up call. Men may not have the same societal pressures to look young, glowing, and conventionally beautiful. But every man’s skin deserves to look and feel its best, and needs to be protected from the dangerous rays of the sun and other environmental factors. Even if that truth is accepted, there tends to be a general misconception that women should stick to “women’s” products and men should stick to “men’s” products. With a few exceptions, products are not formulated for men or women specifically. Differences between so-called men’s and women’s lines are almost always in marketing, not formulas. If you have dry skin, for instance, you’ll want to flock to the products designed for dry skin, regardless of your genitalia. Still, approaching Korean skincare can be overwhelming at first. And there are certain areas (shaving!) where guys need something a little different on

Best Korean Essences

Best Korean Essences

A lot of people new to Korean skincare, or those who are skill skeptical that Koreans reign supreme in the industry, want the Korean “secret.” They want the one ingredient or product that will take them from pimply grease bomb to cover girl. That product doesn’t exist. For one, everyone’s skin is different, and an ingredient that makes one person glow might make another break out. Plus, the Korean skincare routine is just that  — a routine, a process, sometimes one of trial and error – in which people become more in tune with the needs of their skin and take the time to care for it. Transformation happens, but not overnight, and not because of a single product. All that being said, though, there is one product that most Westerners haven’t incorporated into their routine that goes a long way in attaining that bright, dewy skin. It’s the essence. Essences are not designed to replace anything in your skincare routine. While refreshing, they don’t have enough cleansing ingredients to get all the gunk out of your skin; and while moisturizing, they don’t pack the same hydration that a cream or sleep mask does. Instead, they’re one of those “extra”

Welcome to this week’s Get That K-pop Look , where we showcase an original K-Pop outfit and give you tips on putting together your own similarly styled, affordable outfit. Hyosung put on a stellar performance of ‘My Name’ on MCountdown recently, and her outfit was one for the K-pop lookbook. It was sporty enough to bounce around in on stage, but chic enough that a different pair of pants or shorts could have turned it into an outfit for a Saturday night dance party. It’s a fun and easy look to get yourself, and it’s full of pieces that look great both together and separately. Here’s where to start shopping: Classic Gold Choker Collar, £10 from Trouva We’ve seen lots of chokers in K-style lately. A simple gold one like this adds tons of character to even the most basic of t-shirts and tanks, and looks great alone or paired with tons of other jewelry. This one from Trouva has that Greek goddess feel that would also look fantastic with a white, summery maxi dress.   Rhinestone Bars Layered Y-Chain Necklace, $6 from Charlotte Russe Great news – the layered jewelry trend isn’t going anywhere.
