Hello everyone, welcome to today’s skincare video. In this routine I will be showing you K-beauty products that gets my skin glowing. I have carefully chosen these products that focus on hydration, by adding moisture or making it easier keep it in. These steps together gets my skin refreshed, looking bouncy, full of life with a healthy glow.
Firstly I go in with COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser,
This is a gentle but very effective cleanser formulated to help with pH balancing and works as an anti acne cleanser. It is important to maintain a good skin barrier, an acid mantle that prevents infection and retains moisture. When skin is working on the right pH number it combats harmful bacteria; the types that could grow, triggering inflammation and skin conditions, such as acne. This step will help the skin to look its best as maintaining a good skin barrier will keep skin clear and hydrated for longer.
Next is the Dear, Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner,
An ideal product to prepare the skin, before I start applying my other products I use this toner to once again create the environment that will maximise my skincare. This toner is effective for pH balancing, its very moisturising, great for soothing irritated skin and its vegan. The right pH numbers prevents dryness, irritation and redness and the toner contains Licorice Root which helps with skin brightening and it is anti-inflammatory. This toner treats the corners that come with breakouts and dull skin; so skin can look exceptionally smooth and brighter.
Then I use the COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
Snail mucin is a great ingredient to have in a product it repairs and hydrates the skin. In terms of acne it can help with battling it as well as fading dark spots and scars. It has Arginine as a key ingredient that is a skin hydrator, that helps bring water to the skin and binds it so the skin absorbs water, it also builds skin collagen adding elasticity so prevents fine lines and wrinkles. This essence focuses on keeping moisture in the skin, it improves my complexion, and my skin feels extremely soft to touch and looks more plump.
Now I put on the Dear, Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Tencel Sheet Mask
This mask is ideal as it transforms skin from dry and dull to radiant quickly; it is able to get the nutrients from the essence it absorbed deep into the skin because of it’s lighter fibres compared to other masks. It is silky and soft to touch making application easy and comfortable. This mask is designed to soothe sensitive, irritated, and inflamed skin while also moisturising and repairing the skin-barrier. Another reason why I added a mask to this routine is because I sometimes I like and need to slow down and pause. Normally my skincare takes me less than 5 minutes, but when I put a mask on I now tap into the self care aspect rather than just skin maintenance. Spending an extra 15 minutes to get my skin and mind aligned. I also wanted to listen to some music.
After I go in with Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream
This cream is light weight and it absorbs very quickly into the skin, ideally for combination skin type and it can work as a day or night cream. I really like this products as I don’t feel it after I have applied it, there is no greasiness or clogged pores feeling. However, l am fully hydrated as the cream works to maintain moisture by creating a protective film. It contains 33 different marine components & Hyaluronic Acid which retains moisture to the skin, so skin is more plump and smooth. Another reason I like this is for the austenitic colour of the cream and the refreshing scent that is very strong so keep that it mind if you are sensitive to smell.
Finally I apply sunscreen, the MISSHA All-Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45 PA+++
I complete every morning skincare routine with sunscreen as the last step. Without sunscreen, everything you have done is basically pointless. Sunscreen gives you protection and will improve the overall health of skin. This MISSHA sunscreen is a broad spectrum chemical sunscreen SPF45 and PA+++ providing high UVA and UVB protection. UVB rays cause sunburn, but UVA rays can penetrate the deeper layers of our skin, creating sun damage and ageing. And that is why you need a sunscreen that offers both forms of protection. Adding sunscreen into my skincare routine helped improve my uneven skin tone from sun damage.
This sunscreen has a lovely texture, very moisturising and not greasy or sticky; blends into the skin effortlessly with no white cast. I am comfortable enough to wear this sunscreen everyday. I haven’t experienced any skin irritation or acne breakouts from this product so it has quickly became a favourite.
This is the end of the routine, these steps combined keep skin clear, smooth and extra hydrated giving a flawless glow.
