Skincare 101: 5 Known and Effective Korean Skincare Hacks for Glowing Everyday Skin
Daily skin care: The majority of K-pop artists have mirror skin, which paints the picture of clean-looking skin. The ultimate goal of this Korean routine is skin that is flawless and dewy or mirror-like. Glass Skin Routine is a step-by-step tutorial for smooth, dewy, and nearly flawless skin.
It starts with products formulated specifically for your skin type and includes procedures like double-cleansing your skin before applying serums, lotions, moisturizers, and mists. This skin care differs from the usual standard in that it uses hydrating ingredients to balance your skin’s pH.
Here’s how to get glowing skin at home with these 5 hacks.
1. Jamsu- Ice water dip
The Korean word for this technique is jamsu, which means “submerge” in English. This involves covering your entire face with powder and submerging it slowly (15 to 30 seconds) in a bowl of ice water.
2. Slap your products
Instead of rubbing your lotions in, patting them lightly into the skin actually causes the product to absorb more deeply and prevents product wastage by eliminating smearing. Over time, facial slapping is thought to stimulate collagen by improving blood flow to the skin.
3. Facial massage
Although lymphatic drainage massages are incredibly popular at spas, Korean women have been using this method at home for years. Starting at the base of the neck on the sides where your arteries are, gently massage your skin upwards, up to the jawline, in circles around the sides of the face and around the eyes.

4. 10-second rule+ air dry
After washing your face or instead of patting it dry with a towel, let it air dry. Even if you recently washed the strands, there are still a surprising number of bacteria and chemicals that can harm your skin in addition to friction.
To follow the 10-second rule, apply skin care products to your face within 10 seconds of washing your face and while it’s still damp. This sweet spot is where your pores are most sensitive and capable of absorbing products.
5. Double cleaning
Cleansing sounds so simple, but in reality, especially if you wear a lot of makeup, your cleanser may not be enough to remove the dirt from your face. Practice a double cleanse that involves using an oil-based cleanser (such as a cleansing balm) to remove makeup, followed by a regular water-based cleanser to thoroughly clean your skin to ensure your face is properly cleansed.
