New to Asian beauty? Don't let all the steps overwhelm you. Taking care of your skin should be fun, not a tedious task, so we've put together some basics that we love to help you get started.
DOUBLE CLEANSE ($39 Value)
This process involves using an oil based cleanser (or cleansing balm) first and then following it up with a gel or foam cleanser. Oil based cleansers help get rid of oil based debris like sebum, makeup or SPF, while foam/gel cleansers draw out water based debris like sweat and dirt. This kit includes the Botanic Farm Grain Ferment Cleansing Sherbet as the first step cleanser. We love fermented skincare products for those with dry or sensitive skin because they're loaded with fruit and sugar acids that help moisturize the skin while simultaneously strengthening and protecting your skin. This kit also includes the cult favorite Cosrx Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser as your gentle second step cleanser. Follow with this cleanser after the Botanic Farm one to thoroughly rid your skin of all impurities.
ESSENCE ($20 Value)
An essence is an essential part of any Asian skincare routine. It's a concentrated formula that helps repair your skin on a cellular level, giving you brighter and smoother skin. This kit includes the Benton's Snail Bee High Content Essence which has been referred to as "life-changing" by beauty experts. We love this essence because it's packed with hardworking ingredients including snail secretion filtrate and bee venom! (Note: Snail mucin is a hero ingredient in so many Asian skincare products because of its long list of benefits. It's best known to boost elastin and collagen production, minimize wrinkles of fine lines, fight blemishes, and even out your skin tone.)
MASKS ($15 Value)
Masks are a great way to give your skin a spa-like treatment at home. You typically see an instant benefit of brighter, more plump skin, and with so many masks to choose one, it's easy to find some that you really love! We've selected a few of our favorites from WHEN, Leaders, and It's Skin to help you up your skincare game in 20 minutes or less! Try masking twice a week and see the difference in your skin.
SUNCARE ($10 Value)
Sunscreen isn't anyone's favorite topic, but it's so important to use daily. Nearly 80% of skin wrinkles and visible signs of aging come from sun exposure, so regardless of season, applying SPF needs to be a part of your daily routine. We've included the 3W Clinic SPF 50/PA+++ sunscreen to help protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays. We love that this formula goes on light and can be used on all skin types!
