6666666image[4]Koreans take their skin-care very seriously and I was opened up to a whole new world of skin rituals and know-how while I was in Seoul over the holidays. I was instructed by my boyfriends sister and my mother-in-law how important your skin-care routine is and how to apply eye cream correctly etc. They were shocked to discover that I didn’t use eye cream consistantly and that I sometimes use cleansing wipes before bed instead of washing my face (due to being tired and lazy) which is a crime in Korea. Since I’v been back I have been religious about washing my face with cleansing foam (Seed Fermentation Cleansing Foam – The Face Shop), rinsing with water three times and applying eye-cream (It’s Potent! Eye Cream – Benefit) and face cream (7 Akma Cream) morning and night, and I have noticed that my skin is more compact and brighter as a result. So here is the correct way to apply eye-cream alla Korean:

1. Wash face with cleansing rinsing with abundant water.
2. Apply a small amount of eye cream to each one of your ring fingers.
3. Lightly dab four spots of cream along the under eye.
4. Coninue to lightly dab along the under eye bag area with your ring fingers giving your uder eye a little massage.
5. Apply slightly more at night for de-puffing action.

Best beauty buys from Korea:
Angel Aqua – Beyond, light gel formula great for summer and layering over a serum.
Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask – Innisfree, great for tightening and cleaning pores.
7 Akma Cream, a beautiful rich formula with essential oils perfect for fighting winter dryness and for night time hydration.
