Remember how mom would always remind us to drink lots of water? Your body needs water and so does your face. When skin lacks moisture, it becomes dehydrated and will not be able to function effectively as a barrier to protect your skin from external irritants. Thus, resulting in dry, sensitive skin.
Therefore, to alleviate all symptoms of dehydration and sensitivity, it’s best to balance skin’s moisture like how our Korean idols do! Below are a few Korean skincare products that can help you look like you just stepped out from a luminous Korean magazine cover.
1. Missha Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence
This is the holy grail essence that rejuvenates skin and leaves you experiencing a clear and glowing complexion. This essence contains fermented extract of Himalayan purple barley, which is an exclusive ingredient that helps strengthen skin's own natural barrier. With this ingredient, it makes it a lot easier for the process of cell turnover, leading to a more hydrated and smooth skin.
2. Let Me Skin Ultra H20 Modeling Pack
Isn’t this the cutest mask ever? This adorable capsule is the mixing bowl for the water-jelly modeling mask that is packed inside this packaging. The mask contains soothing ingredients like antioxidant-rich licorice, green tea, ginger and chamomile that protect skin from damage. With these rich ingredients, this mask is perfect for those whose skin gets irritated easily by the environment.
3. Tonymoly Intense Care Snail Gold 24k Hydrogel Mask
Fermented snail mucus essence sounds weird alone but when it's formulated with 24K magic and ginseng extract, these ingredients become the essential part of this gel-type mask. Not only will this mask nourish your skin, it improves other conditions like fine lines and wrinkles. This mask fits perfectly on your skin, making it easier to work its 24K magic.
4. Nature Republic Snail Solution Foam Cleanser
Yes, snails are involved but only its mucus filtrate plus other ingredients like Neofinetia Falcata or Callus Culture that makes up this rich and soft cleanser. This cleanser moisturizes skin by penetrating deep into the pores without over-drying them, only to dissolve impurities of the skin pores. And what's left is healthy skin with its natural glow.
5. THE FACESHOP Rice & Ceramide Moisture Toner
This toner isn’t the ordinary moisturizing toner as it is enriched with both rice extracts and ceramide. These ingredients provide superb moisture to the face and help to ensure your skin stay soft and supple throughout the day. The rich and thick consistency of this emulsion is great for drier days and this product has a pleasant scent too.
6. Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream
As the name goes, this gentle cream is blue and it’s calming. Guaiazulene, a herbal ingredient extracted from chamomile oil, is what makes the cream blue and it’s a powerful skin-calming agent. The other main ingredient is the Centella Asiatica extract. It is the hydrating agent that relieves irritation and redness. This cream can be used to calm sunburnt skin and post-shaving redness and irritation.
7. Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask
Doesn’t it sound sticky and sweet? This ultimate mask does not feel gooey on your face due to the presence of Natural Bees Wax, which also supplies moisture to the skin and keeping it refreshed from inside out. Propolis is another ingredient added to this product to help sterilize skin and reduce skin problems. Refrigerating this mask enhances its soothing effect and treats puffy face better the next morning.
8. Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop
This is a skincare serum that features 5% Vitamin C and is gentle enough for sensitive skin types. Vitamin C products are recommended for use during the day followed by sunscreen. The Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) is a scientifically proven antioxidant that helps protects skin from UV damage while stimulating collagen production and improving skin tone and texture.
9. Neogen Real Flower Cleansing Water
Available in two kinds of floral water (Calendula and Rose), this cleansing water is the product of natural beauty. Each has real flower petals in it that adds the extra oomph to this product. Calendula relieves sensitive, irritated skin, and its delicate scent relaxes the mind. Rose, on the other hand, cleanses pores deeply while enriching the skin with moisture. If you prefer all things natural, this is the secret to soft, moisturized skin.
10. Laneige Water Bank Double Gel Soothing Mask
This mask lives up to its promise as soothing ‘Water Bank’ to your face. With this soothing mask, you can certainly wave dehydrated and stressed skin goodbye. The 6 ionized moisturizing minerals in this mask make it easier to activate the moisturizing agents and allow them to penetrate the skin swiftly. Natural ingredients like quinoa extracts help protect the skin from dryness and damage while restoring the skin’s natural barrier.
