Why I'm Turning to Korean Skincare
To say that I've been obsessed with skincare lately is a major understatement. I think most people are, to be honest. At least my friends are... I feel like we're constantly comparing products, regimens and what is the latest "trend". I heard and read about Korean skincare (here and here) for the past few months - but was a little hesitant to try.
As I've mentioned before (probably 100x at this point), my skin is super sensitive. I actually started this new skincare routine about 10 days before I went to Florida, but because I only brought a carry on, I didn't bring all the products... andddd maybe got a little burnt in the sun... but my skin BROKE OUT (not over-exaggerating at all) on my face and arms for about 6 days after my return to Boston. Anyways, I started back up with this new line and things cleared up pretty quickly.
Insert: Saranghae. I have been using the 5-step Saranghae line for close to a month now. What results have I noticed?
1. Before I started this routine, my skin was so, so, so, SO dry. I even went to the dermatologist to get some recommendations for new things to try - NADA! The winter is obviously a hard time because of the cold weather... coupled on top of the STRESS from the house renovations. CUE: eczema breakouts. But the daily products of this line, which include ingredients such as mushroom and ginseng, are truly rehydrating and healing. I never feel like my skin is dry - at all!
2. Growing up in the age of fake & bake has left me with extra wrinkles on my face (and freckles all over!!) Who's with me? My under eyes have really taken the brunt of this. Within 2-3 weeks, I've noticed much more firm skin around my upper and lower eyes. Additionally, I've learned so much about how sensitive the skin is around the eyes. My ring fingers have quickly become my new best friend when applying the eye cream.
3. Three words for you: Elemental Essence Mask. The face mask which is essentially step 5 of this 5-step routine is only to be done once a week. I seriously look forward to it. I haven't been a huge fan of sheet masks in the past. I feel like they don't do anything for me. The Saranghae sheet mask is SO moisturizing and hydrating. A secret trip: do NOT wash your face after you're done. All of the
left over moisture is meant to be left to absorb into your skin for some extra nutrients. BONUS!

This routine will definitely be something I stick with for a while!
