One of Asian know-how is the method of two-step cleansing. Mascara silicone-based, lipstick, oil-based cleanser makeup… to wipe it from the face, Koreans use a hydrophilic oil. It copes with its task, and upon contact with water turns into a light milk. Moreover, hydrophilic oil does not penetrate deep into the skin, but only binds the molecules of grease, dirt and creams on its surface, and then you wash off this “mix” with water. In the end, the skin is clean, but not overdried.
Gonyak sponge is a sponge wash made from the roots of the plant Konjac. Dry gonyak resembles a piece of light stone, but upon contact with water the sponge becomes soft. Unlike other sponges for the face, it does not just clean, but also perfectly exfoliated and cleanses the pores. Before using gonyak sponge, it needs water to he softened and increased in volume by about half. The sponge is ready for use when it is completely soft, without a solid “core”. Lightly wring it, and then start cleaning from the forehead to the chin, paying particular attention to problem areas. To change sponge is recommended every two to three months.
Means for hydration and nutrition
Basic skin care in Asia always starts with the step of applying lotion to moisturize and/or Royal jelly to nourish the skin. These products are enriched with active ingredients, they perfectly refresh the skin and provide instant hydration after cleansing.
They want them to look natural, but it seemed more attractive? BB cream to help you! Thanks to its high-tech makeup, BB creams help to hide imperfections in the tone, moisturize, nourish and protect from ultraviolet radiation. Another advantage of BB-creams — amazing endurance and invisibility on his face. Light, silky, melting texture envelops the skin with a soft veil that hides imperfections and creates the effect of naturally flawless skin.
Another Korean innovation colony. Yes, these light tone vibes also came to us from Korea. The cushion is a compact with a sponge soaked in a remedy, and dry skin, which cosmetics applied to the skin. The pores of the sponge loosen the texture of the cream, causing it turns into a weightless emulsion that does not slips and falls evenly, even if you apply the tool in several layers. Colony compact, packaging is more like a compact than the Foundation, because they are convenient to carry in a purse for touch-UPS throughout the day.
Cosmetic with ginseng
Korea is the first country to establish mass farming ginseng. The Botanical name of ginseng is Panax, which means panacea — a cure-all. It is also called the root of life and the gift of immortality. The healing properties of ginseng have found wide application in cosmetology. The plant grows up to 4-5 years of age, as in 6 years the number of saponins (active substances) reaches a maximum. Then the ginseng groups sorted by: “heaven”, “earth”, “good” and “cut”. The selection of a particular group occurs in many ways, for example, “heavenly” root must weigh at least 68 grams, not have holes, be like the person, and the clearance to be transparent. The value of the root is very different depending on its class: the closer to “heaven”, the more expensive. Then, the roots are washed, steamed, dried — and get so called red ginseng. It contains large amounts of vitamins, acids and minerals. Cosmetics on the basis of red ginseng refreshes and smooths the skin, and in the long term, stimulates regeneration processes and improves microcirculation.
