K-BEAUTY TIPS
Hey guys! Okay, so since today is K-Beauty day, I will write down a few tips that will hopefully come in handy! ENJOY!
1) Facial Massages
Who doesn't love a good face massage? Many people, not just in Korea, massage themselves during their cleansing daily. It is known to help boost circulation and give a healthy glow.
"When you massage your face, you want to work with the direction of the muscles, not against," writes Cho in her forthcoming book The Little Book of Skincare: Korean Beauty Secrets for Healthy, Glowing Skin.

2) Essences
The Korean skin-care routine is notorious for using multiple products. One step that might seem seem uncalled for at first, but is actually essential are essences. Essences, a skincare category that was created in Korea, are one of the most important parts of the K-beauty routine. An ultra-concentrated liquid or lotion, it's packed with active ingredients, which revitalizes the skin after cleansing by increasing cell turnover for firming, brightening, and increasing elasticity.
3) Blurring
When it comes to coverage, K-beauty is all about an airbrushed, HD-closeup-worthy approach, which consists of using foundation to "blur" out imperfections.
"It's kind of like making your face look a little cloudy," says Cho. "You're using formulas that disguise fine lines, uneven skin tone, patchy skin, and dark spots, but not so much coverage that you look heavily made up. It's not going to completely cover up that pimple, but it will hide it a bit, making you look bright and natural looking, but not flawless."

@Badtz well study up on what you want to change. whether it be problem spots, acne etc. then study up on what would help and brands that are affordable and work. alot of the times it's trial and error since on thing might work for someone but might not work for you or vice versa. But always remember to have fun doing it too (🐳 Sky)
