Summer Essentials Korean Skincare Tips

Summer Essentials Korean Skincare Tips

The skin protection needs may change depending on the season. While the normal skincare routine can protect you the whole year, you need to make some small changes for it to be 100% effective. For example, the strong sun rays may harm skin during summer. The strong heat causes the skin to produce a lot of sweat which might result in clogged pores. In this article, we will look at Korean skincare essentials to take care of the skin during summer.

1. SPF50

During summer, the strong UVA and UVB rays are the most dangerous. UVA causes wrinkling, aging, cataracts, and loss of elasticity, while exposing your skin to UVB for too long may cause skin cancer. You need to use at least an SPF30 sunscreen to protect your skin. But dermatologists recommend using an SPF50 sunscreen which protects the skin from 98% UVB rays compared to 96% of SPF30.

Dr. Ceuracle pro balance biotics is a vegan SPF50 sunscreen. It's made using a combination of both physical and chemical sunscreen ingredients to enhance protection. In addition, it's formulated with 6 -probiotics to balance skin conditions and boost skin immunity. Dr. Ceuracle sunscreen is lightweight and nonstick for maximum comfort.

Benton Sunstick  The new product of Benton Mineral Sun Stick SPF50 is a must-have for the summer. This hero product is pediatrically tested, a mineral sunscreen in stick with a low white cast. It is portable and easy to re-apply everywhere and anytime safe to use for whole family. Its  white solid sunscreen is in stick balm formulation that spreads smoothly with a soft finish. 

2. Wash face properly using double cleansing at night. 

There are a lot of outdoor activities during the summer. As you participate in these activities, the skin may pick up bacteria or dirt. Some of the activities may also cause sweat which may end up blocking the pores. For this reason, it's important to double cleanse your skin at night. Double cleansing gets rid of the bacteria on the skin and also cleans up the pores. 
The best way to double cleanse the skin is using Heimish and Pyunkang Yul cleansing foams. They are both organic and suitable for all types of skin, including people with sensitive skin. Heimish all clean soothes and moisturizes the skin while Pyunkang Yul removes dirt and oil from the pores.

3. Lightweight moisturizer

During the summer, the skin doesn't require intense moisturizing like during winter. But this doesn't stop moisturizing as you will be losing a lot of water through sweating. Besides, you need to moisturize to protect the Stratum Corneum, which is the outermost layer of the skin. This part is crucial as it protects the inner skin from chemicals, pollutants, dryness, and irritation.

We recommend moisturizing the skin using Vegreen 730 daily moisture cream or Torriden DIVE-IN low molecule Hyaluronic acid cream. Vegreen 730 cream is a lightweight and non-sticky moisturizer that also helps to restore damaged skin. On the other hand, Torriden prevents moisture loss and provides long-lasting hydration.

4. Exfoliate your skin

Exfoliating the skin stimulates collagen synthesis, which is an important connective tissue that holds the cells together. Collagen synthesis improves skin integrity and texture and makes it appear tight and young. The skin contains dead skin cells and other fluff that may reduce proper absorption of your daily routine. Luckily, exfoliation also helps to get rid of dead skin cells, dirt, and oils on the skin.

The best way to exfoliate the skin is using a a mild Korean skincare product such as BEIGIC correcting exfoliator. It's 100% vegan friendly as it is made from coffee bean powder. Apart from gently exfoliating the skin, this product stimulates natural renewal. BEIGIC correcting exfoliator boosts the skin radiance and evens the skin tone.

5. Mist

The extreme heat temperatures may cause the skin to dry and become flaky. A mist is an essential product during this season as it cools, soothes, refreshes, and hydrates the skin. Dermatologists also say that mist can help enhance moods thanks to the plant extracts that provide aromatherapy.

I strongly recommend using Hyggee all in one mist or Haruhary Bamboo Mist. Both are made from rich plant extracts that not only hydrate but also nourish the skin.

6. Vitamin C Serum 

Vitamin C is a very important ingredient that should be used all year round. It accelerates the production of both elastin and collagen, which are vital compounds in keeping the skin plump and firm. During summer, you need to use a topical vitamin C to restore a smooth and youthful appearance as well as prevent premature aging. The best way to replenish your skin is by using By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C. It's formulated using 70% sea buckthorn water, 21.5% vitamin C and the rest percentage constitutes other nourishing ingredients such as sodium hyaluronate. It is recommended to use concentrated vitamin C serum at night and avoid sunlight especially for those with acne-prone and sensitive skin, it may cause irritation.
