Korean women are known for having flawless skin. Charlotte Cho, curator and co-founder of Soko Glam – a Korean beauty product e-commerce destination – shares some of her tips on achieving a perfect complexion.
Step 1: Scoop a rich facial moisturiser (or night cream) into the palm of your hand.
Step 2: Add a drop of essence to increase moisture
– This will help to thin out the cream’s texture and give it a slightly slicker consistency so that it is easier to apply.
Step 3: Rub the combination together in the palms of your hands for about 15 seconds to warm it up.
– The warmer your hand, the more easily the product will be absorbed.
Step 4: Pat your skin to cover the entire face with the mixture.
Step 5: Gently massage the midsection of your face with your fists.
‘Doing this twice helps boost circulation,’ explains Cho. ‘Start just underneath your cheekbones, using the knuckles of your two index fingers. Move up toward the temples with an outward-to-inward motion.’
Step 6: Continue to massage the mixture all the way down the outline of the face.
Step 7: Use your forefingers to massage the area underneath your eyes to help reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.
Step 8: End by kneading your neck with your fists.
