Every so often a makeup or skincare trend comes along that blows our minds. Think soap brows for example. The best kept backstage secret that is, some argue, better than brow gel! This is the best time to take care of your skin, so if you want an excuse to turn your bathroom into a spa, here are the best game changers at the moment.
What is it? Milk peels originated in Korea (as most crazy but amazing skincare treatments do!), they contain lactic acid which is found in milk. Think of Cleopatra bathing in milk, it’s all very luxurious, women today even splash their faces with milk at bath houses.
Why does it work? You’d choose a milk peel over an ordinary peel if you want to brighten and strengthen your skin as lactic acid helps to even out the skin tone. A milk peel will resurface your skin while giving it a brightness and a glow.
Primary Raw Do You 2-Step Milk Peeling Kit ($6)
What is it? This is another Korean trend (they’re just innovators!) that we love. Hydration and moisture are actually the foundations to great skin, do not underestimate it. But if you don’t have time to create a whole moisturizing routine, capsule creams contain all you need in one single capsule!
Why does it work? One small capsule will give your whole face enough moisture, hydration, and rich cream to last all day. Fast application and the cream will just sink in.
J. One Hana Cream ($50)
What is it? With a consistency similar to coconut oil, makeup melters sink into the skin and remove makeup effortlessly. If regular cleansing isn’t for you, this might just be your skincare savior. All you need to do is put a little bit of the balm on your hand and rub it onto your face, then do a quick clean with a wet cloth or cotton pad.
Why does it work? The cleanser gently melts into your skin and takes all your makeup off in just a few seconds. It’s great for fast makeup removal and also replenishes and rejuvenates your skin. Most of them have added skincare benefits and contain vitamins too!
OleHenriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser ($30)
What is it? Inspired by Korean bathhouses. Splash masks are a super fast way to get perfect skin. You splash and pat the formula onto your skin in the shower and get results in as little as 15 seconds!
Why does it work? It’s fast and perfect for busy girls. You can use them over the sink, in the shower or with a cotton pad and water. They give moisturization and exfoliation to the skin and contain different extracts for different benefits. Giving their fast acting nature they have huge benefits and ingredients that deliver them now.
Blithe Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey Patting Water ($45)
