This past fall my adorable daughter-in-law, Sumi, came to visit from Seoul. South Korea has long been considered the mecca of all things skincare and she has worked in this industry for several years. While she was visiting, she treated me to one of her facials and shared some of her favorite tips and products.
Since all of us are currently sheltering at home I thought that now would be the perfect time to pass along some of what I learned from her and the products she used.
After initially washing my face well and removing all traces of make-up, she applied this calming serum. She told me this would help my skin from being irritated when she removed the mask that she was getting ready to apply. This product has a wonderful citrus and sage smell to it and I have used it for other minor skin irritations and blemishes with amazing results. Artemisia has become a must-have item for me.
She wanted to apply it with a stiff makeup brush but I really didn't have what she needed. I have since added these brushes to my collection
the brushes here.
Other options include Dr. Jart+ Brightening Lover Mask
Dr. Jart+ Hydrating Lover Mask,
and Dr. Jart+ Clear Lover mask.
These masks are a Korean product but I was able to purchase them here
Lavera Eye Cream available here.
