Time never stops. That means wrinkles are inevitable as time passes and as we grow older. Our skin will show signs of aging year after year from just living our everyday lives. But how have Koreans been able to the stand the test of time? While there is no way to completely reverse the effects of aging, there are certainly preventative measures that we can take, especially through skincare, to age gracefully. Today, I will present you all with a K-Beauty guide to anti-aging skincare products to make you look and feel young!
Like all other skincare regimens, it is important to cleanse your skin to create a clean, solid base for skincare products to go on top of. Etude House’s Moistfull Collagen Cleansing Foam is a solid choice to achieve this clean base. The cleanser also contains hydrolyzed collagen as an active ingredient to help keep the skin firm and clear.
Using a toner and/or pad is also essential in prepping your skin for more skincare goodness. Neogen’s Gold Black Caviar Essence and Gold Tox Tightening Pack kit helps exfoliate dead skin and rough texture which can make your skin look rough and prone to aging. It not only delivers a smoother canvas for the face but it also helps prevent and tackle wrinkles and fine lines with ingredients such as black caviar, gold, caffeine, and collagen! They all work together to protect the skin from the harmful effects of UV rays but also firms, plumps, and rejuvenates the skin for a younger-looking complexion.
A mask a day keeps the wrinkles away! Masks have been the secret weapon in combating aging for many Koreans. They can effectively aid in preventing and repairing signs of aging with just 15 minutes of relaxation.Jayjun’s Collagen Skin Fit Mask is one of those secret weapons as it contains collagen, ginseng, mistletoe ferment extract, and other fermented ingredients to help plump, revitalize, and tighten the skin for more resilient and youthful skin.
Eye Mask: [Etude House] Collagen Eye Patch
We can’t forget about the eyes! Our under-eyes are one of the most noticeable victims of aging, with wrinkles and eye bags becoming worse with age. Etude House’s Collagen Eye Patch specifically targets sagging eye bags and wrinkles. The collagen in these under eye masks will help plump and tighten fine lines for bouncy, rejuvenated under-eyes.
This is nothing new. There are an endless amount of anti-aging and wrinkle creams that we see on commercials and advertisements, even from our mom’s days. However, with the right cream, your skin can receive much needed nourishment and anti-aging properties. Dewytree’s Aqua Collagen Peptide Multi Cream contains collagen, peptide, placenta, and adenosine to help plump, firm, and revitalize the skin to help the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Eye Cream: [coxir] Black Snail Collagen Eye Cream
Your under-eyes need attention too and requires a separate eye cream since they are thinner and more delicate than the rest of your face. Coxir’s Black Snail Collagen Eye Cream is a must-try for those who suffer from sagging under-eyes. The snail mucin in this eye cream conditions and protects the skin while improving skin elasticity and managing fine lines. The collagen and adenosine will help plump and firm the under-eyes for a smoother, wrinkle-less appearance.
As we get older, our skin gets drier. So do our lips! Don’t neglect your lips because they will also start to show wrinkling and dryness that doesn’t look pretty at any age. Moisturizing the lips is essential, Donginbi’s lip balm is formulated with red ginseng extract and gingko biloba leaf extract to provide antioxidants for youthful looking lips.
Hopefully, you were able to get some insight into skincare products and ingredients that will help prevent signs of aging. K-Beauty offers a wide array of affordable options for anti-aging that are just as effective as the expensive, luxury creams that American beauty brands try to sell you. These suggestions are only small steps in looking young. Your daily activities and habits play a big role in the aging process. So, keep yourself healthy and active everyday!
