Korean’s are known all around the world for their smooth and flawless skin. Therefore beauty enthusiasts quickly adopted their elaborate 10 step K-beauty skin care routine as soon as Korean skin care products surfaced the market. However, these days we can hear a lot of rumours surrounding this much-hyped skin care routine so we’re here to debunk some of them for you!
- Korean skincare is not for Indian skin
- Facials oils are not for oily skin
- K-beauty is just a passing trend
- Using anti-aging products early makes you age faster
- Sunscreen is only required when it’s sunny outside
Korean skincare is not for Indian skin
Whoever told you that is absolutely wrong. Considering the weather and pollution levels of our country we need to adopt this beauty routine now more than ever before. The elaborate skin cleansing will remove deep set dirt which is trapped in the pores whereas the sheet masks are quick to add hydration back into the skin.
Facials oils are not for oily skin
No matter how obvious this sounds, it is a myth. While not all oils can be used on oily skin, there are some that work exceptionally well. Non comedogenic oils and products can be included in the skin care routine of a person with oily skin.
K-beauty is just a passing trend
While it may appear as a trend that would be soon forgotten, we cannot deny the fact that a lot of people have experienced drastic changes in their skin. So, while the hype around it will die down, we are positive that K-beauty is here to stay.
Using anti-aging products early makes you age faster
Many of us have grown around the misconception that the sooner you start using anti-aging products the earlier your skin will age. If anything Korean’s incorporate anti-aging products right from their teens and they have absolutely flawless skin.
Sunscreen is only required when it’s sunny outside
If we haven’t said it out loud a hundred times we’re here to say it once more. Koreans wear sunscreen even when it’s raining outside, they also wear a hat and mask for extra protection.
