It’s no secret that the Korean beauty scene is all the rage here in the United States. From makeup tutorials to personalized skin care regimens, K-beauty is proving to be less of a trend and more of a staple in our daily beauty routines. Specifically, their tips and tricks have been adopted here to clear acne, relax with a sheet mask, and helping restore mature skin. Known for their extensive skin care regimens, Koreans have mastered the art of ultimate skin care and their products have caught the curiosity of the beauty world.
Korean actresses and models have without a doubt discovered the fountain of youth. Even into their late 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s, they have maintained a beautiful youthful, camera-ready glow without a stitch of makeup. Known as the global beauty trendsetters, these stars have access to the finest products to help fight against the aging process. But props go to their strict discipline in maintaining such beautiful skin.
Narrowing down the right products, however, is half the fun! When approaching skin care, Koreans believe that it must be specialized to the person. Like a personal trainer would specialize a work out and diet plan to a client, K-beauty focuses on your specific skin type and addresses it carefully with a mix of different products. However, we will be covering what some of these top products are, as well as the best anti-aging products Korean celebs use to maintain their dewy glowing skin. While it will take a little trial and error to nail down your perfect concoction of products, these products are great for any skin type and are here to give your skin that boost it needs.

First on the list is Su:m37 LosecSumma Elixir Essence Secréta, a well kept secret among Korean celebs until now. This powerful serum penetrates deep into the skin for thorough nourishment. It strengthens the barrier of the skin, reduces fine lines and textures, and replenishes a youthfulness to the skin.
Its lightweight formula nourishes even the driest skin, giving it a radiant glow, increasing positive blood flow to the skin to restore plumpness, and strengthening the skins elasticity.

Once you have cleaned your skin, add a few pats of this serum to your skin to jump start your routine. This will add glow, promote blood flow, and help your other products to absorb much quicker. You will also notice that the serum is a slight gold color due to its brightening licorice root and green tea ingredients to smooth skin textures and restore glow. With its powerful Korean herbs and honey, it not only helps to moisturize your skin, but is a powerful agent in the fight against aging.

Private Doctor Minus Serum
This serum is extremely interesting and used widely in the K-beauty world. It is one that is disrupting the industry for its incredible affects but also for its uniqueness.

What makes this product so unique is that inside this little pink bottle, it is full of microscopic needles – yes needles – that painlessly penetrate and inject your skin sodium deoxycholate. Sodium deoxycholate is similar to the Kybella, a fat-dissolving injectable. This means that this serum literally has the ability to sculpt your face without the hassle (or price tag) of an in-office procedure. So if you have a fear of needles like I do, this is the next best thing to add to your beauty routine.
