Exfoliation: a skincare oldie, but a goodie. Not only is it considered one of the most important steps to beautiful skin but its also soooo satisfying. Few things feel better than sloughing away your dead skin cells, especially when you know its for a good cause – radiant, glowing skin.
Let’s face it ladies, we’re all pretty pressed for time in the mornings. Between showering, getting ready and frantically downing some coffee preparing breakfast, we have little time to prep our skin for the day. Although we know its important to cover all our skin bases in the morning (cleanse-tone-nourish-moisturise-protect), we often end up skipping some vital steps due to the mad morning rush.
I don’t know about you, but I grew up thinking that venom was generally considered a bad thing, which should probably be avoided and definitely not smeared across your face…or anywhere else for that matter. But evidently I was wrong, so very wrong. “Nature’s botox” (what a charming name!) is the ultimate hero ingredient for combating fine lines and wrinkles. Both bee and snake venom have been shown to improve the visible signs of ageing, which makes them my new best friends.
The LJH Mineral In Cushion will change your life. Yup, it’s a bold statement, but I’m sticking by it. The coveted cushion compact has to be one of the greatest skincare innovations from Korea, like a BB or CC cream, they offer light, yet effective coverage with sun protection and skin benefits – with the added benefit of easier application. What more could you possibly want?
First and foremost, I owe you all an apology. I hastily announced the arrival of our “Indian Summer” in last week’s post…just before it started getting reaaaallly grim in London town. It seems I was acting on bad intel – I blame it on the weatherman. Alas, I think we’re going to have to face the painful fact that “Winter is coming” (that’s Game of Thrones speak, for “its gonna get pretty darn cold soon”), which means we need to dust-off the wellies, find the scarves and mittens we gleefully packed away a few months ago – and adjust our skincare routines.
One of the many things I love about Korean cosmetics is the commitment to innovation. Some of the newest, coolest and sometimes strangest (nipple masks, anyone?) cosmetic ideas were created in Seoul – and one of my favourite Korean cosmetic creations has to be the Goodal Phytowash Yerba Mate Bubble Peeling. This revolutionary exfoliator is packed with nutrients, gentle on the skin and very effective at removing dead skin cells (tick, tick and tick).
Good news Brits, our Indian Summer has finally arrived! In light of this auspicious occasion, we would like to share some timely (and timeless) advice. We all know that keeping well hydrated – especially on a hot Summer’s day – is imperative for overall health and wellbeing, but did you know that it also plays an important role in the quality of your skin?
With so many incredible Korean skincare products to choose from, my skincare routine rarely contains more than one product from any given “range”. There is one notable exception to this however – and that is the Goodal Phytorain range. The toner, serum and gel cream have all been staples in my skincare regime for a while, and here’s why…
So, you know you have oily skin (it’s glowingly obvious). You thought you had your skin routine down – every morning you prep your face step-by-step and begin the day feeling as fresh as a daisy. An hour or two later however, you feel like enough oil has seeped through your face to fry an egg. The most frustrating thing is you could have had a lie in got to work early instead. No matter how you spend your morning – the end result would still be a greasy face by lunchtime *sigh*
