The reason why Korean beauty products have become so popular all over the world is that they really work on most people. From the face masks everyone and their mother is raving about, to the most unique makeup products, we just can’t live without using at least one of the many Korean beauty products out there in our daily routines.
Today we’re going to go through some of the most popular and viral Korean hacks that actually work. Some of these are really crazy and strange, while some of them actually make a lot of sense, if you think about it. But all in all, trust me, they really get the job done, and I recommend them. So, if you want to upgrade your makeup products and looks, you really need to try these out.
This one’s probably the most popular of all, not only because it works magically, but also because it has that quirky factor we love seeing on social media. Jamsu is the ultimate hack to set your makeup base and prevent smudging. But beauty comes with a price, and that means you have to dunk your face in cold ice water. The trick is to apply your primer, foundation, and concealer as normal, and then cover your entire face with baby powder. Once you’re all white and powdery, submerge your face for at least 30 seconds. Dry your face and finish your look. This will make your face look like porcelain for hours.
Korean skincare doesn’t beat around the bush. This hack will really work wonders on your skin, but it can also be pretty expensive. The idea is to apply seven layers of toner right after cleansing. You should take a break between layers to give the skin some time to absorb the toner. Once you’re done, you should apply an extra layer of cream or gel moisturizer to seal the toner in. This will give you that dewy and glowy finish that characterizes Korean skincare.
This one might sound nonsensical, but there’s some sound logic behind it, actually. The 3-second rule is pretty self-explanatory: after washing your face, you only have three seconds to apply your skincare products. That’s right, you shouldn’t even dry your face with a towel because the idea is to apply all the stuff while your face is still wet. The reasoning behind this hack is that our pores are usually closed to prevent external elements from getting in, and this includes your beauty products, but pores open up when they’re in contact with water, so you’ll absorb the products even more and have better results.
Sleep around damp towels
If you want dewy, hydrated skin, you’ll probably want to try this hack out. The idea is to hang damp towels in your bedroom to create a humidifying effect. The water vapor will keep your skin moist and hydrated all night. If you want, you can also put some essential oils on the towels to maximize the effects. Doing this every once in a while is the literal definition of a beauty sleep.
The key element to rocking the Korean style is having flawless, perfect skin. These hacks, might be a bit strange, but they’re guaranteed to help you achieve that natural and radiant skin you want. Put them to the test and see the results for yourself. I swear you’re going to be amazed by them.
