I don’t know about you, but I’ve been obsessing on my skin care a lot lately. I’m constantly battling against Summer’s determination to ruin my looks with sweat and oil. Now don’t get me wrong, I love summer, but I do NOT care for the swampy swamp-bod that I’m constantly subjected to.
What’s incredible about Korean beauty is its ability to give you that dewy look without the sticky look, two totally different things! Anyway, here are some awesome products that you should most certainly purchase if you’re constantly chasing your pores clear.
This is a magical skin juice — it’s toner and a micellar water. It’s literally a beauty water. As in, water that makes your skin beautiful! It’s packed with Willow bark extract and papaya enzymes that gently exfoliate dead skin cells, revealing your beauty underneath.
These hydrocolloidal adhesive patches suck all the stuff out of the ruptured pore overnight, turning it white — a signal that it’s cooked and your pore is totally clear and no longer raised. ( Works best on an already messed with pimple)
The secret to dewy skin is to literally spray it with a hydrating mist. This one has coconut water — a preferred facial summer beverage.
Another way to create a glow is with glow pellets, like the microscopic ones in this primer. It’s basically a strobe cream, but slightly more subtle, just giving your complexion refreshed look that blurs away any tired sallow stuff.
This concentrated serum is chock full of fermented yeast and probiotics.
Cushion compacts are great as a means of complexion coverage AND sun protection. Laneige’s are top of the cushion game, and they’ve just expanded their shade range. This one leaves a semi-matte, soft-focus finish — excellent for blurring pores and eliminating oil.
This product is basically a light serum-moisturizer hybrid. It has all the concentrated powers of a serum, but in the body of a moisturizer. It’s very light and creamy and absorbs right away with chaga mushroom extract to deeply hydrate.
Nothing is better than a good peel. These pads make exfoliating a breeze. Infused with AHAs and BHAs, it’s pretty much like a pore polish after you cleanse (once or twice a day, up to you!) so the rest of your skin-care products can really soak all up in there.
This lightweight moisturizer is like the perfect date: considerate, not clingy, and smells nice. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel greasy at all, but does feel…super hydrated.
