Did winter get the best of your skin? Fear not! These Korean skincare products will get your skin fresh and revitalized just in time for spring.
Cleanse: SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick, $40
A natural cleanser for all skin types that will rid your skin of everyday impurities. The Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick contains fermented damask rose extract and almost entirely natural ingredients that leave your skin feeling clean, but not dried out. Since it isn’t a liquid, it’s easy to travel with!
Directions: Turn the dial counter-clockwise until you see about 1 cm of the stick. Rinse your face with water and massage the cleansing stick onto your face in circular motions to create a lather. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Exfoliate: Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off, $12
This face scrub is enriched with vitamins and minerals to slough away dead skin cells and revitalize your skin.
Directions: After cleansing, apply to face, avoiding eyes. For sensitive skin, add water or toner. Massage into skin and leave for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water.
Tip: Don’t overdo it! You should exfoliate no more than 2-3 times per week.
Renew: Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence, $49
The Time Revolution First Treatment Essence is without a doubt Missha’s most popular product. It promotes skin renewal and provides nutrients, leading to better elasticity.
Directions: Apply to face and neck after cleansing. Follow with any serums, moisturizers, or creams. Can use day and night.
Moisturize: Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream, $45
This cream contains 70% snail extract, or snail mucin. Snail mucin is one of Asia’s best-kept beauty secrets – it aids natural cell regeneration and adds moisture, leading to the treatment of blemishes, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and uneven skin tone.
Directions: After applying any toner, essences, and/or serums, apply to skin and pat lightly until fully absorbed. For dry skin, apply over a moisturizer.
