Most of us are obsessed with K-beauty brands but have you tried a Korean facial? It’s no secret Korean women take their skincare and beauty regimes seriously and sometimes even spend a fortune for their dewy, radiant skin. Our mission at Eclado Laboratory is to achieve flawless skin. Here are some tips from our very own skincare experts.
1 – Prevention Is Key
One of the biggest principles in the K-beauty is prevention. Instead of waiting for those dark spots and fine lines to appear, you have to start early. Experts claim that from the age of 25, the signs of ageing start to show through fine lines, dark spots and wrinkles. Protect your skin every day to fully shield your skin from UV rays and you will enjoy the benefits later.
2 – Always Use A Moisturiser
Those of us with oily skin may skip moisturising but the truth is you are probably not moisturising enough. Keeping your skin hydrated helps to retain moisture and combat sebum and secretion. In fact, our skincare experts suggest following the 10-second rule – the faster you lock in that moisture (after a shower), the better your skin protection. Use water-based moisturisers which can be absorbed easily and can offer rich hydration without being too heavy on the skin.
3 – Use Products with Natural and Organic Ingredients
Owning the right products is the first step to achieving a flawless complexion. Our skin requires great care and we highly recommend Korean brands which are known to infuse natural and organic ingredients. Korean brands are always at the forefront of skincare innovation and use the very best botanical extracts from fruits, flowers and roots. Snail mucin and bee venom are just the tip of the iceberg. Stay away from parabens, fragrances and artificial preservatives and your skin will thank you later.
4 – Rubbing Instead of Tapping
Being gentle is the heart of the Korean skincare routine. If you are scooping up your cream and rubbing them over your face, it is high-time that you stop. It is important not to tug at the skin which can create fine lines. Use a patting motion on your face and neck and gently massage your skin with upward and outward strokes.
5 – Going for Facials Consistently
Even if we’re diligent in our beauty regimen, external factors like stress, weather and our diet can take a toll on our skin. That’s why we need to leave it to the hands of professionals. At Eclado Laboratory, we offer a wide range of facial treatments with sophisticated formulations and delivery methods, tailored for every skin type. Since our Korean therapists are so meticulous and conscious of the skin’s fragility, you can expect minimal pressure during each treatment, which helps in detoxification and achieving that flawless complexion.
