Korean skincare is becoming more and more popular. If you’re looking for future skincare trends, you only need to look at what new products Korean brands are releasing. Whether it’s a bubble mask, soothing sheet masks or cleansing sticks, there are several products that can take your skincare routine to the next level. But, what if you only use natural innovations? Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Here are some natural style Korean skincare formulations to try.
Got oily skin or congested pores?
You’ll love this DIY carbonated clay mask. Bubble masks or carbonated clay masks generally use carbonic acid to ‘fizz up’ when reacting to the natural oils on your face. This results in a foamy, bubble effect. While this DIY version won’t puff up in the same way, it still has amazing effects on your complexion, including eliminating impurities from your pores to prevent spots and congestion. Furthermore, it also exfoliates to remove dead skin cells so your skin will be glowing after use.
