Top 10 Korean Beauty Secrets For Clear, Flawless and Healthy Skin

Top Korean Skin Care Habits and Beauty Tips:

1. They Use Honey for Everything:

Yes, they do.  In medicines, in ceremonies and in skin care treatments. That is not a weird thought though. Honey has cleansing properties. It acts as a perfect cleanser. Hence the fixation. Korean women apply raw honey on their face for exfoliation. It is a part of their beauty routine. The age old warm water with honey every morning cliché probably originated in Korea. Everyone drinks it every morning to clean their body and boost their immunity. It also gives you a flawless glowing skin free of acne and scars.

3. Koreans Use Frozen Milk Cubes

People with oily skin can try it during scorching summers for skin care. Freeze raw milk in ice tray. Apply the cubes on clean skin. You can also use it as a cleanser and apply it on your face. During winters, apply it at room temperature.

4. Three Step Cleaning

Koreans clean, tone and moisturize their skin almost every day. Clean with yoghurt/honey/milk, Tone with honey/rose water and moisturize with a face pack. Now, they have ready made face packs, which look like paper masks. These masks come in many flavors like, green tea, honey, grapes etc. So apply these face mask to retain the moisture content. Make it a part of your skin care regimen.

5. Low on Salt Diet

Koreans believe that salt in excess can kill anybody. This is an exaggeration. However, salt is actually your best friend and worst enemy. It just depends on the quantity of your intake. It is said that if you avoid salt for a year and a mosquito ends up biting you, the mosquito will die immediately. It has to be best korean beauty secret I came across.

6. Korean Beauties Eat fruits

Koreans eat a lot of fruits. Pears and Pineapples are found in abundance. Being a staunch vegetarian, I was skeptical of eating anything after I landed. I bought some Pineapple, ate, and waited for my brother to pick me. The best pineapple of my life was in my stomach. It actually helped me in getting rid of that sick feeling and after applying that juice on my face, I was ready for my Korean sojourn. You can find the best citrus fruits here. In India, always count on Oranges and Papaya for a similar experience.

7. Koreans love to sleep

Korean women love to live a leisurely life. They do not compromise on their sleep for anything. Nine hours of sleep is just fine for their beauty regimen. I completely agree with them because body needs to repair itself on a periodic basis. So do not compromise on your sleep. Neither do I. This is one beauty secret from Korea I totally love.
8. The 10-Second Rule
The 10-second rule is pretty simple. As soon as you get out of the shower (ten seconds after you dry off), apply a natural moisturizer to your skin. The pores in your skin open up right after you shower. The quicker you apply your moisturizer, the better the cream is absorbed.
9. Hot Towel Massage
A hot towel massage can help enhance blood circulation and open your pores to help your skin breathe. Simply soak a clean towel in hot water then cover your face with it. Gently massage your skin for about 15 minutes, then remove the towel and apply a nourishing oil to your skin.
10. Lemons
The citric acid in lemons works as natural treatment to remove dead skin, even out your skin tone and rid your pores of excess dirt and oil. Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice into a bowl. Use a cotton ball to apply the lemon juice onto your skin for a youthful glow.
