Western culture wasn’t caught unawares by the beauty of Asian women. Their beauty appears in countless stories as well as the now antiquated mystique of exoticism. Asian woman have been making their appearance known again lately thanks to an increased interest in their beauty routines. Whatever steps they are taking seem to ensure they tend to have beautiful and seemingly flawless skin. OROGOLD knows a few of their secrets and will be happy to share. The good news is that you can easily adopt some of their secrets into your standard routine without ever even noticing any huge expansion to your skin care routine. The even better news is that you don’t have to worry about all that beauty being purely genetic either.
Keep Your Skin Moisturized
Most Asian skin care routines place a heavy emphasis on keeping the skin moisturized. This isn’t just due to their particular style of cleansing, but is simply a routine part of their day-to-day lives. Use moisturizers and serums appropriately during your normal routine is something you probably already do. Just make sure you’re applying them in the right order for the best effect. The secret to take away from all this though is that Korean women in particular also rehydrate their face throughout the day. They use misting products a couple of times a day to keep their skin looking full and healthy even if it happens to be the dryer part of the year. Try experimenting with doing the same. Just remember to keep an eye on your skin as your skin reacts to external hydration differently from anyone else’s.
Double Cleanse or Swap Your Cleansing Product
Double cleanse refers to the practice of using two separate cleansers one after another to clean the skin even more deeply than a standard cleanse. The trick is that you need to know the products to use to make the most of this. Asian beauty routines favor oil based cleansers for the first step as they can help disrupt other oils readily without the potential harshness of other cleansing products. Their effectiveness isn’t diminished by them being gentler though. If you don’t want to try a double cleanse, then just stick to this first step and swap to a good oil-based cleanser. You can do a full double cleanse by getting a quality facial soap or foaming cleanser to follow up the oil cleanse though. This will allow the lighter cleanser easier access to your skin since the surface grime gets striped away by the oil cleanse. The combine cleansing should leave your skin feeling cleaner than it ever has before.
No one will ever argue that exfoliation isn’t good for your skin when done properly, but plenty of people will argue over how to exfoliate properly. Asian women tend to favor exfoliating once or twice a week at most with a very particular requirement: only exfoliate the areas that need it the most. Instead of rubbing their entire face with an exfoliating product, they specifically go after problem areas for their routine exfoliation and save full face exfoliation for facials and other occasions. This allows them to focus on containing the problem areas of their face without necessarily worrying that a product will hurt the rest of the face’s appearance. It also slightly reduces the amount of time needed in a routine for exfoliation and frees up that time for other steps.
These steps don’t cover a full Asian beauty routine, but those are easy enough to find. OROGOLD has even done its best to summarize the routines. The main thing to remember is that these secrets tend to favor precision and mindfulness. Taking care of their skin isn’t just an incidental thing for Asian women, but an integrated part of their lifestyle. If you want to see similar results, then prepare to dedicate yourself to your skin’s health all over again.
