When it comes to K-Beauty and its many routine steps, it’s a given that getting the perfect glow is a full-time commitment. But are you sure you do everything possible to prevent winter dehydration? In this last episode of Miloon K-Beauty guides dedicated to winter dehydration, we will explain how to get the most out of your favorite products to get the splendor of your dreams. And maybe even more ;-).

 

 

EYECARE.

Did you know that dark circles can appear even more marked when the skin is dehydrated? In fact, the winter dry air absorbs moisture from the skin, which is definitely annoying and harmful to the thin and fragile skin around the eyes, naturally without adequate hydration. Increasing this level will help smooth and soften the area around the eye area and reduce the appearance of dark circles. Another tip: use a non-drying makeup remover and be careful not to pull or pull the skin around your eyes.

Bad Eye Vita Cream is a delicate cream for the eyes with a moisturizing and smoothing effect that lightens the shadows under the eyes, thanks to baobab, devil’s claw and Desert Rose. This has been formulated to provide maximum hydration to the lower area of ​​the skin and repair the skin’s moisturizing barrier for better water retention.

Another excellent product is Shangpree Ginseng Berry Eye Mask. This has been enriched with antioxidant-rich berries such as cherries, raspberries and cranberries, is Shangpree’s Ginseng berries eye mask. This is just perfect to be used for in the morning or at night. Get ready for full, bright and rejuvenated eyes in no time. Milena tested it a while ago, and found out it’s just fantastic. Read all about it here.

And do not forget the Miloon Sleeping Mask, the premium silk sleeping mask, the key to optimizing your beauty sleep, thus achieving a new level of skin tone. Silk is widely used in the East for its nourishing properties for both the body and the hair. In fact, at night, while you sleep, your body loses moisture. This results in a much more important increase of the signs of aging, which are therefore more visible. Silk proteins accelerate skin cells’ replacement and improve their levels of hydration, preventing the evaporation of nutrients in the area around the eyes, the main cause of wrinkles. This night-mask is also suitable for sensitive skin. In fact, silk is a hypoallergenic material with an immediate soothing effect on skin irritated and sensitive to itching.

The Miloon Mask is designed to protect your eyes from light in an optimal way, allowing you to recover energy quickly, maximizing your rest. It produces the essential conditions to raise – even during the day – the levels of melatonin, the body hormone that regulates the sleep-wake cycle and affects your good mood. The soft silk fibers of the mask are soft when in contact with the very delicate area around the eyes. Doing so these soft precious fibers prevent dehydration. Miloon’s mask effectively counteracts the formation of wrinkles, puffy eyes and dark circles, allowing a high quality rest, even while traveling.

 

 

MOISTURIZERS.

Hydration is the key to the cold months, especially after the moisturizer the main product, the true protagonist of this guide, is useful to help block the hydration in the inner layers. Immediately after feeding the skin with the sheet mask, it’s time to put some moisturizer. This category’s products contains a complex mixture of agents helping retain water in the skin. This makes the epidermis -the outer layer of the skin- even softer and more flexible. While increasing skin hydration, these products have been specifically developed to reduce evaporation: they comes as a cream or in the lighter version, as an emulsion. There are so many options to choose from: here are some

Maple sap is May Coop’s hero ingredient for a reason. Tree sap molecules are smaller than those of water, allowing the ingredient to hydrate and penetrate the skin deeply. This hydrating day cream seals your skin care routine, providing 24 hours of moisture. Made with 90% maple water and 7 different types of red plant extracts (pomegranate, dates, Chinese magnolia, to name a few) for maximum absorption and hydration. 

Another great product to moisturize is Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream. This  moisturizing and soothing facial cream is suitable for all skin types, especially for dry and sensitive ones.

One last thing remember. When you choose them, remember that moisturizers should not only be chosen based on the type of skin and the additional functions related to their specific formulations should be changed seasonally.

 

 

CLEANSERS.

Detergents can be very dry to the skin, often, even excessively. Maybe you want to try a more moisturizing cleanser, perhaps one that gently exfoliates dead cells to reveal smoother and softer skin. Hot showers and baths can feel particularly good in winter. Try using lukewarm water to avoid undressing the skin of its natural oils.

A’Pieu From The Black Cleansing Oil Gel Foam is a gel cleanser based on essential oils that contains hibiscus extract that soothes the skin and a complex of black seeds.

Frudia Blueberry is a moisturizing foam cleanser made from blueberry extracts obtained from the crystalline island of Jeju. It effectively removes makeup and impurities without drying the skin. The antioxidants and anthocyanins contained in the product prevent the action of free radicals, revitalize and provide the optimal level of hydration.

Another excellent choice is Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser. This cleanser for facial cleansing  was designed for sensitive skin. It is capable of removing blackheads and dead skin, uniforming and maintaining a perfect moisture level within the skin. Thanks to ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, ceramide 3 and olive oil, the skin becomes perfectly hydrated and nourished.

 

 

EXFOLIATORS.

We often believe that moisturizer is the most important skin care product in winter, but the moisturizing principles can not penetrate deep into the skin if they encounter too many dead cells on its way. The exfoliant helps to remove dead skin cells, revealing the underlying fresh skin, promoting not only cell turnover, but helping the skin better absorb the following skin care products. That’s why the skin, to be healthy and hydrated, must always be exfoliated regularly.

Try Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish, the exfoliating cream that gently removes dead cells, impurities and blackheads. Another fantastic find is the Neogen Cica Pad disks. In fact, when you are dealing with inflamed acne or very sensitive skin, toning and exfoliating could be the last thing you would like to do, but these pads could make you change your mind. They are immersed in an essence formulated with Centella asiatica extract, a very popular ingredient in K-Beauty, to soothe and smooth the skin without causing irritation. The concentrated formula also reduces redness and inflammation and helps promote the production of collagen, creating a stronger skin barrier and a smoother complexion.

Other excellent products are also Frudia’s Citrus cleanser, which hydrated and exfoliated at the same time.  However, should your skin be already irritated by the cold, maybe you want to skip this step. Although,  this is step is surely a must when it comes to  avoid winter dehydration, .

Chemical exfoliants (such as those containing glycolic acid or other AHAs – on this tea see our exfoliation guide) tend to be too dry in the winter, physical exfoliants, using more granular formulations.

But even in this case, pay attention to carefully following the instructions and always take some time to check your reaction.

 

 

HYDRATING SERUMS AND AMPOULES.

Characterized by active ingredients that act on the skin in depth and can really solve those skin problems such as dark spots, wrinkles and opacity, sera and ampoules are a super concentrated version of the essence, that surely comes in hand for shiny, bright and hydrated skin.
