It is known by all that Korean women have the most beautiful skin going. Smooth, uniform and healthy looking, the secret to getting perfect and impeccable skin goes further than just looks, it depends in part on Korean lifestyle and philosophy.
In Korea, beauty is integrated in their culture. South Korea is on the list of countries with most plastic surgery operations per year and Korean cosmetics are a beauty industry with followers that increase by the day.
For Korean women having beautiful skin is a sign of good health. They love looking after their skin, and this takes priority over using make-up, spending between 20 and 30 minutes per day on their beauty ritual.
The ritual consists of a minimum of 10 steps: first a makeup cleanser, with a watery base, an exfoliant, tonic, essence, serum, facial mask, hydrating cream, eye contour, sun protection BB cream… and a large etc of Korean beauty products.
Korean cosmetics arrived in Spain thanks to the Korean BB cream and immediately took hold of our hearts. A really curious piece of information is that BB cream was born in Germany to protect skin after laser treatment and hiding the marks caused by this. Korea developed the formula for this dermostetic product and launched it to market. This was just the beginning for our devotion to Korean products.
It’s not just one factor, but a combination of many, that make Korean products amazing.
For example, Korean cosmetics aren’t segmented in special treatments depending on your age (as is the case in the west), but they are designed depending on the requirements of each skin type. The results are visible after a few uses and the textures and aromas make using the products a unique sensorial experience. To make the products they use the best natural ingredients and the pioneering technology, and they don’t hesitate when it comes to taking risks to make the best Korean creams.
Having said that, what makes some of the Korean products more attractive is their spectacular packaging, especially the Korean masks. Animal masks, packaging illustrated by designers, with duck mouth forms… The stand out colours and fun packaging are just the beginning of highly specialized masks: cleansers, anti-fatigue, anti-aging, mattifiers, purifiers, for dry skin, acne prone skin, dehydrated skin, sensitive skin, to apply to your eye’s contour, for the wrinkles around your mouth… it's no wonder that the Korean masks have loyal followers all around the world.
Another strong point for Korean beauty products is their value for money. Their prices are very competitive and for a little more than £1 you can find wonderful masks that offer great results.
