Today, let’s talk about hydration. The subject is, of course, very broad, but we will not ramble on.
Let’s start with the fact that water enters skin from within. Because the skin is well protected by its outer layer and lipid barrier, it is quite difficult to penetrate it with moisture from the outside. Our skin loses moisture under the effects of the environment.
In a healthy, young person, up to ⅓ of the epidermis is made up of water. This level of hydration results in great appearance of skin, quick healing of any injuries, and absence of hypersensitivity. (more…)
The beauty secrets of Korean and Japanese beauties haven’t been so secret to us for a long time. We all know that the reasons for their beauty and youth are not the mysterious “asian genes”, but dietary habits and an excellent skincare routine. So I asked myself – what parts of Korean menu can we find not in a restaurant, but on a sheet mask shelf? (more…)
So, Korean tricksters, did you think that the summer is ending so it’s time to put away all the sunscreen tubes until next summer?
First of all, there are ladies who live in the countries where winter is as far as the Chinese border.
Second of all, fall and winter are important seasons for skin rejuvenation. Because RETINOL. And without sun protection, we will all look like a herd of cute and smooth, but very spotted giraffes. (more…)
My kid loves beauty boxes. I love them too, but as an older and more practical lady, I know that a beautiful box filled with colorful papers that we open with trembling from excitement hands, most of the bottles will accumulate in the bathroom as useless clutter.
But the money will be spent, while you could buy something actually useful and really cool with it.
So the kid and I started a tradition – I put together a monthly beauty box for her. (more…)
I have a combination skin with oily t-zone, which loves to shine by lunchtime. My nose could get so dry that it flakes, or shine like an oily skillet. I’m (almost) 28, have freckles, and very fair skin. Naturally, I have pores, but without any big issues.
Recently I have started to experiment with tubed and cushioned BB creams, and they pretty much require a primer, otherwise they fall into the pores.
Ladies, this cream by Korean brand Innisfree is a real miracle. (more…)
I don’t like the saying comparing women to berries. Let’s imagine how quickly berries wilt and shrivel. But the ginseng root doesn’t shrivel. It doesn’t really change much, maintaining its healing properties.
Especially if the ginseng is fermented, with gold and a whole “army” of skin-rejuvenating components. (more…)
Hydration is essential to preserving the youth of any skin type: dry, normal, and oily (oily skin, despite the theories of some girls, can easily be dehydrated as well). Sometimes, it’s so hard to decide if a cosmetic product is a good fit for our skin. Maybe it’s the placebo effect – when we start to think that the treatment is working because our friends are praising it. Or if it’s very expensive.
In the past, the effectiveness could be measured in numbers only in the cosmetologist’s chair. But now, thanks to Asians, we can do it in our own bathroom.
