Ever wondered how Koreans seem to effortlessly pull-off that flawless, radiant, dewy look they’re very much well known for? As though they don’t have a single speck or blemish or anything that would make their skin look less than a radiant god’s us mere mortals aspire for?

If ever you’ve tried hundreds of ways to achieve that near perfect skin complexion, don’t worry, we’re all in that same boat. And if you’re still clueless as to where to begin or why things aren’t really quite working out all that well for you, don’t worry. We here at /ESCAPE might be of help.

So here are our recommended 5 steps in achieving that widely coveted Koreana glow:

Drink plenty of water

This is the first because so many people forget the benefits of getting enough (not even plenty, but literally even just enough) water in their bodies makes a huuuuge difference. It will definitely make your skin plump!

Get enough sleep

Being a girl (or guy) always on the go will definitely set you back a couple of hours for snoozing. However, if you want that bright and radiant skin, you have to get more than just the 5 hours of sleep you keep clocking in. You wouldn’t a dull and lifeless complexion, do you?

Make SPF your best friend

I know, this product is part of most (if not all) skin care routines. And for a good reason too! Whether you’re a mestiza or a morena, everyone needs to protect their skin from the sun. And with summer just around the corner, I’m telling you, you’ll need it!

Adapt a skin care routine that works for you

Now I’m sure you’ve all heard of that 10-step Korean skin care routine, and while we encourage you to try it (hence the image–you’re welcome) we all have to accept the fact that not all skin is the same and what works for others, may it be a routine a product or a certain brand, might not work for you. But by all means, go! Explore the wonders of skincare products and rituals, may it be Korean or otherwise.

Invest in skin care products

Now we get to the part where I tell you that you shouldn’t feel guilty of spending all the money you did buying skin care products…but! Just make sure that what you’re buying is actually good for your skin. I recommend a brand that’s tested and well-known for like The Face Shop! You definitely get value for your money.
