1. Facial massage in the shower.
The goal of K-Beauty is to obtain a flawless complexion, a process which begins even before cleanser. Start your routine by taking a couple of minutes for a facial massage every morning while taking a shower. The steam will help open your pores, so you can get rid of dirt deeper and faster. Make sure to massage not only across your face, but also gently on your neck. Then, use a facial sponge and/or cleanser to wash both the face and neck area.
2. Use tea to nurture your skin.
3. Exercise the face.
Exercise should not only be for the body, but also for the face. Daily facial exercise and massage combined with the right cosmetics will help you contour your face and slow down the aging process. Try facial exercises that define and tighten the jawline, forehead, and neck.
4. Have a small ritual.
One of the most popular items in Korean skincare is sheet masks. Treat yourself to a 20-minute spa treatment at least once a week. Wash your face and dry gently with a towel. Choose your type of sheet mask and leave it on the face for 20-30 minutes after applying. During that time, make a cup of herbal tea, light a scented candle, settle down with a book, and separate yourself from the worries of your work day. Allow your eyes to rest by staying away from your screens: TV, computer, smartphone, etc. Try listening to relaxing music and meditating. After the allotted time, remove the mask and wash your face if directed. Finally, apply a deep moisturizer.
5. Apply products with proper movements.
Just as important as the products themselves, how you apply your serums, creams, cleansers, etc. has a noticable effect on the skin. K-Beauty lovers know that products should not be rubbed or smeared onto the skin. Instead, tap the face with fingertips or use an application tool like a jade roller. Tap your skin or use the tool in small circular motions for a short face massage. This stimulates blood circulation and helps the skin absorb the products more effectively.
