Whereas standard beauty regimes revolve around quality makeup and makeup techniques, the Korean beauty regime has placed heavier emphasis on taking care of the skin. This emphasis on good skincare shaped the development and evolution of Korean skincare products. Korean cosmetic industries not only invested, researched, and developed makeup products, such as eyeshadows, highlighter, and lipsticks, but they focused on creating good skincare products for building a strong foundation necessary for the additional cosmetic regime. Many Korean skincare products are made with ingredients proven to be safe and effective through empirical evidence, and each product lines continue to improve upon existing products. Korean skincare product lines are known for their multi-step regime that starts with a gentle yet effective cleanser, to a moisturizer that keeps the skin healthy and hydrated, and finally, a sunscreen that protects skin from harmful UV rays.
Korean skincare products focus on good cleansing to keep the skin clear of excess sebum, dirt, and dead skin cells and particles that can clog the pore. Good skincare products cleanse the skin without stripping natural moisture and oil. For a cleansing routine that, many Korean skincare products adopted a double cleansing method, which includes an oil-based cleanser followed up by a foaming cleanser. The oil-based cleanser detaches makeup and dirt from the skin, and the foam cleanser removes the dirt and makeup while avoiding stripping natural oil from the skin.
Korean skincare products focus on nourishing and hydrating the skin. Good skincare products allow the skin to be revitalized by delivering necessary nutrients via a serum. Serum often contains antioxidants, which help skin repair sun damage and allow the skin to glow by reducing fine lines, uneven skin tone, and facilitating shedding of dead skin cells. In addition, good skincare products also allow the skin to rehydrate by supplying water-based moisturizers. A humectant, such as hyaluronic acid, alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), and glycerin, is an excellent moisturizer because it absorbs moisture from the air into the skin.
Korean skincare products focus on protecting the skin from harmful UV rays. Good skincare products protect the skin from both UVA, which is responsible for premature skin aging and UVB, which is responsible for skin burn and skin cancer. Active ingredients in sunscreen can be categorized into chemical absorbers and physical filters. In general, chemical absorbers are effective in protecting the skin from UVB, and physical filters are effective in protecting the skin from both UVA and UVB. Despite its ability to block both kinds of UV rays, physical filters have not been popular in cosmetic products because they often left the skin with white cast and greasy. However, years of research allowed physical filters to remain on the skin without leaving a white cast and without leaving the skin feeling greasy.
BB cream and CC cream, a hybrid of makeup foundation and sunscreen, was developed in response to the strong demand of customers who wanted a product that can be reapplied
sunscreen throughout the day without ruining the makeup. Many skincare products from Korea continue to improve based on clinical studies, product research, and customer feedback.
