Skincare trends often start in South Korea. It’s where glass skin came from, and it’s why beauty waters have started to catch on. But what are they exactly?
Basically, beauty waters are lightliquids that hydrate skin and prep it for your following skincare regimen. Think serums, moisturizers, and then the grand finale, makeup. Some target brightening or toning and other skin concerns too. With just one quick step, they can cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize, providing instant refreshment to skin, like your very own glass of water.
But isn’t that the same as micellar water, essence, or toner? Not exactly. They are all in the same group with the exception of anything based with alcohol. Toners and mists designed for hydration are usually spritzed on. Micellar water is used only to cleanse. Basically, beauty waters combine all these elements into one handy product, making for a one-step or on-the-go beauty product that you won’t want to be without.
Son & Park is credited with creating the revolution, however you can find beauty waters by many other brands now. But how do you use beauty waters?
Bring back pH balance to your skin
After you cleanse at home, you can use beauty waters to restore your skin to its normal and natural pH level. It hits the reset button for you by delivering hydration and replenishing lost moisture, and does so gently enough even for sensitive skin.
Quick and gentle exfoliation
With natural extracts thrown in for good measure, using beauty waters can help you get a gentle exfoliation in, particularly after shaving legs or plucking eyebrows. In addition to softening skin and lifting away any dead skin cells, it adds hydration and soothes skin, leaving it with a calm appearance.
Have you ever been stuck on an international flight or a long train ride? With beauty water in your bag, you can cleanse anywhere without a sink. It can handle your whole skincare routine by applying it to a cotton pad by cleansing away dirt and pollutants, gently exfoliating to even out tone, and leaving skin hydrated, refreshed, and looking beautiful.
If you have beauty water in a spritz bottle, you can simply spray it on during those hot summer days. It helps calm your skin and cool it down too.
Gets rid of stubborn makeup
Why waste money buying a makeup remover that you have to scrub onto your skin? Using beauty waters, you can make short work of waterproof eye makeup. It comes off clean so you’re not tugging at your delicate under-eye skin and causing wrinkles. When you’re far from a sink, you can use it on its own or you can use it along with your regular cleanser to get rid of every last trace of your makeup for a purely fresh face that isn’t dried out and tight.
Now that you know why Korean women always have such flawless skin, it’s time to test out those beauty waters for yourself!
