There’s a reason why Koreans look younger than the rest of the world. This is because they take great care of their skin and body. Looking good doesn’t simply happen overnight. You need to be surrounded by people who know how to take care of themselves and I would say Korea is one of the best place to keep looking young. Here are some anti-aging remedies Koreans do to stay young.
1. Wash Face Gently
Please touch and wash your face gently when you clean. This is to protect your skin from over drying. Your goal is to remove the dirt that’s layered on your skin but you do want to leave some moisture to prevent any unwanted wrinkles.
2. Use Retinoids
Collagen will reduce over we are getting old, and protein plays more and more important role to keep skin smooth. This loss can result in a creased look. Therefore, you can start using retinoids but don’t overuse it because your skin will start to peel off. I personally recommend using it 2-3 times a week and only at night before bed. There’s a new formula where they put retinoids and cica in one bottle so I would definitely recommend using that from Innisfree.
3. Don’t Forget To Use Sunblocks
Using sunscreen to protect skin from UV is the one common thing older people give advice to younger people. There are quite a few different kinds of sunblockss in the market like lotion, cream, stick, spray etc. Using sunscreen with SPF(sun protection factor) number 30 or higher daily basis will prevent your skin from aging and discoloration. Also, depending on ingredients, there are chemical sunscreen and physical sunscreen you can choose, whatever you think works for your skin better, try to use moisturizing one and avoid products with alcohol which can dry your skin out. Korean products offer many options that will suit your needs so I suggest you check out Olive Young.
4. Moisturizing Face With Rich Cream
To moisturize face skin, you need to use rich cream. But don’t forget to check the ingredients to make sure it doesn’t contain anything you don’t want. Also, never forget to apply it onto your neck as well.
5. Eat Healthy Food
We have meals in daily basis, but it’s not easy to detect the effect food give us. But as time goes by, when the nutritions accumulated, there is a huge difference between the skin of the person who has healthy balanced diet and the person who loves drunk food. Products applied to skin is actually just helping from outside, the major reason of skin condition comes from the food you have. Dehydrate food like alcoholic drinks, white carbohydrates, foods with high sugar will make your skin dry which makes you age faster. So try to have healthy balanced food to take enough vitamin, protein, collagen, and all other nutritions. I also recommend you take vitamin C as well. Many Koreans take vitamin C and hit the gym for cardio 3-4 times a week.
In order to look good and feel healthy, you need to change your life-style accordingly. Remember that beauty doesn’t happen overnight and you need to surrounded by those who live a health life-style so you can learn from them. Be the best you can because you only live once. For those who think its too late, maybe a facelift is the best option for you.
