Its only recently that I have come to realize that its not just the products but the entire concept behind the Korean skincare regime that makes it so special. The approach focuses almost entirely on prevention. Instead of trying to treat signs of aging and concealing fine lines, and dehydrated skin, Korean women begin to look after their skin and complexion at a considerably early age.
The most important product in most Korean beauty products are the amazing sunscreens (most of which are SPF50 PA++++) as there is far more awareness of the damage UV inflicts on skin every day, which is why no woman would ever leave her house without applying sunscreen in Korea. We live in such an unforgiving environment here in Dubai. With almost 6 months of summer and the scorching sun, there still aren’t as many people protecting themselves from the harmful UV rays.
The discipline they show towards their skin is truly inspiring. No matter how busy their schedule, Korean women almost never go to bed without removing their makeup and the accumulated dirt from their faces.
With star products, such as ampoules, which have a very high concentration of active ingredients, Korean women are able to take on all kinds of skin concerns: from dehydration and pigmentation to fine lines, dullness and wrinkles. And all of this is done in a more efficient way compared to Western skincare. Korean skin care products stem from a cultural perception of skin care being more of a necessity rather than an indulgence.
It might take a while to get used to spending that kind of time on skincare on a daily basis. It requires a sort of discipline and you may find it almost too easy to skip a day. But pulling through it could end up being one of the best decisions you make. Taking pride in the effort you put in links directly to confidence and of course, helping the concerns your skin faces.
