Today we are going to revisit the Korean dewy look, and share with you simple measures you can do at home to kick-start your week…
What is dewy skin?
– Its the fine balance between a matt dry finish and a shiny, oily look.
– Its the look you get when your skin is healthy, well hydrated and radiant.
– The dewy look is in, and popularised by Korean stars.
How do we achieve the Korean dewy look?
This can be achieved thru good skincare, gentle make-up and aesthetic treatment.
A natural look involves a good skincare regime. Here is a simple, 3 step regime to dewy, glowing skin.
1) Gentle cleansing and Regular exfoliation – (Reason being, over cleansing irritates the skin, and leads to redness, stinging, burning, itch, and more sebum production) – Regular exfoliation of dead skin cells with skincare to reveal brighter, younger skin.
2) Effective moisturizing with an oil free, non comedogenic product. Finally, a good quality BB cream would do the trick and hold it all together.
3) Antioxidants to reduce the damage from the sun, induce skin lightening and anti ageing. — Common products in the market include Vitamin C, White Radiance and Crystal Tomato. – — What you can do at home is to stock up on Green tea, blueberries and cranberries. Perfect for a morning pick-me-up, teabreak or supper!
Now, because we all possess UNIQUE skin types, and different skin issues, the regime has to be individualised.
- Use of good, skintype appropriate skincare
- Light gentle spread of BB cream, concentrating on the areas that tend to have a shadow effect. (under eyes, nose corners, lip corners)
- Black mascara to revitalise the eyes
- Blusher to highlight and accentuate apple cheeks.
And finally, besides good skincare and light makeup, there is a product called skin boosters, to help you achieve just that. So today, I shall share with you some info about it.
What are they?
Hyaluronic acid, that works to rejuvenate your skin.
Skin rejuvenation consists of the following.

How are they used?
They are injected in multiple microdroplets just under the skin.
