It’s no secret that there is close attention paid to anti-aging skincare products in Korea. But what is the ultimate secret that offers Koreans this upperhand? Dennis Stolpner diggers deeper to uncover 3 preventative aging skincare tips we can learn:
Prevention > Cure
‘K-beauty’ skincare routines tend to focus on preventing skin conditions or issues before they pop up. In this approach, cures are rarely needed or sought after. And at the end of the day, it’s a whole lot more difficult (and costly) to ‘fix’ something than to simply prepare for it!
Humidifiers are Your Best Friend!
Whether you have dry or oily skin, a humidity problem can cause irreparable damage to your skin. Koreans often install humidifiers in their living spaces to accommodate this issue. As far as they are concerned, anyone can benefit from this practice!
Starting Skincare Young
In Korea, skincare importance is emphasized at an early age. Sometimes, skincare routines are started at as young as 6 months! While the ultimate goal is not necessarily one of anti-aging, it’s hard to ignore the impact that a solid skincare routine can have on the aging process and overall health of one’s skin.
