At fifty, they look 20! Five secrets of Korean women's "eternal youth" that are available to everyone
Recently, South Korean President Yoon Seok-yeol arrived in Ukraine with a working visit with his wife Kim Keon-hee, who amazed Ukrainians with her appearance. In a few months the first lady will be 51 years old, but no one will give her more than 20! Many Ukrainians in the comments under the photos of the Korean woman wondered how it is possible - to look 30 years younger than her real age.
OBOZREVATEL decided to share some important secrets of "eternal youth" of Korean women. As you know, plastic surgery is very developed in their country and many women (and men too) go to South Korea to correct their appearance. However, it is not only about "beauty injections" and the skill of a plastic surgeon. Korean women take a very responsible approach to facial care. Not surprisingly, the European market is filled with their cosmetics, creams and masks.
Protection from the sun
Among Ukrainian women, unfortunately, the culture of sun protection is not yet so widespread. And this is not only one of the most important parameters for preventing aging, but also the best measure for preventing skin cancer. Just 15 minutes of sunlight exposure leads to the death of almost 90% of antioxidants - substances that fight free radicals and thus prevent aging. As a result, the skin dries out, thins, becomes saggy, and deep wrinkles and age spots appear on the face and neck.
In Korea, girls from childhood know the importance of using products with SPF. In addition to classic creams, girls use SPF cushions (foundation with sun protection function) and sunscreen sticks. They watch the UV index on the street and do not leave the house without sun protection even in the cold season.
Thoroughly moisturizes the skin
Do you achieve the glowing skin effect with highlighter? Korean women simply moisturize their skin deeply to make it glow even without makeup. They do it in several stages: toner, serum and cream. It is recommended to use those products that attract water molecules and retain them in the skin. In the composition of cosmetics, look for ceramides, hyaluronic acid, aloe, snail mucin, glycerin, squalane.
Be sure to moisturize your skin after peeling, because otherwise it loses moisture quickly, as well as after clay masks, because they also take away moisture. Korean women have a secret: they apply moisturizer immediately after washing, when the face is not completely dry.
Say goodbye to low-quality cotton balls
We won't say, but let's assume that you don't pay attention to such a seemingly insignificant nuance as cotton pads. You don't think about their quality and their effect on your skin. And Korean women think and choose only those cotton disks, which are characterized by a special smoothness, so that the lint is not dislodged and does not stick to the skin. Low-quality product with a rough, rough surface in daily use can seriously harm. Especially will suffer already dry skin. Also pay attention to how you remove makeup - do it gently, do not press the disk hard and do not rub your face.
And the best solution would be to buy hydrophilic oil instead of micellar water, because it does not need cotton pads at all.
Deep skin cleansing
Since we are talking about makeup removal, let's continue this topic in the point about deep cleansing of the skin, which is the basis of quality and effective care for Korean women. First of all, this rule should be known and used by everyone, but we still remind you: never under any circumstances go to bed with makeup on. Your skin needs to breathe too. So how do you properly prepare your face for bed? First use hydrophilic oil or cleansing balm to dissolve impurities and cosmetics, and then use a soft foam or gel. In the morning, use only foam or gel without the first step.
This point includes many sub-points, and each of them is extremely important. Thus, Korean women adhere to the following hygiene rules:
- Do not touch the face with hands, especially dirty ones.
- Disinfect objects that touch the face: telephone, eyebrow tweezers, intercom handset, glasses and so on.
- Use a separate towel for your face, but do not rub your skin with it, just blot it.
- Change cloth towels every 2-3 days or use disposable paper towels.
- Change pillowcases once a week. They accumulate sebum, sweat, keratinized skin particles and just dirt.
