Respect Your Skin
In an age of all-in-one skin care products, the thought of spending fifteen minutes a day on a ten step skin care routine may seem like a waste of time to many. However, Asian women grew up watching their mothers carry out ten to fifteen step beauty routines, spending time each day respecting their skin. This may seem like a lot, but most of these steps focus on cleansing and purifying the skin, with all-in-one products and spot treatments never being used. The result has been seen throughout the generations – clear and flawless skin.
Pay Attention to Ingredients Used
One of the main difference between Western and Asian beauty products is the ingredients that are used. Asian beauty products make use of timeless and indigenous ingredients, such as ginseng, green tea or mushroom. Botanical-based products are also hugely popular, with many Asian women choosing to avoid cheap, low quality ingredients, as well as harsh chemicals. OROGOLD suggests that you do the same, and you can be sure that your skin will soon thank you for it.
Don’t Forget to Tone
Toning is something that Asian beauty experts swear by, and while you have probably heard about the term before, it is likely that you don’t place too much significance on it. Toners nourish and replenish the skin, setting it so that any products that are subsequently applied will be absorbed into the skin much more effectively. In Korea, toners are known as ‘refreshers’, because they refresh the skin and prepare it for the next step in the beauty routine.
Use Multiple Serums
After using a cleansing oil, followed by a mild cleanser and a couple of toners, many Asian women will then use multiple serums in order to target specific skin concerns. If serums are new to you, OROGOLD suggests choosing two skin issues that you want to initially target, be it brightening, pore minimizing, hydrating, tightening, or anything else. Then, choose a serum that has been specifically designed to focus on each skin issue.
There is so much that we can learn from Asian beauty, with many of these valuable beauty secrets coming quite a few generations ago. From remembering to always tone to investing in serums that focus on specific skin issues, these Asian beauty tips are definitely worth trying out for yourself!
