Taking care of your skin is always important, especially in the cold winter months. With December just around the corner, it might be a good idea to change up your skincare routine a little bit. We’ve handpicked some gorgeous Korean beauty products from some of our favourite brands just for you! No matter your skin type, we’re sure you’ll find something on our list which will fit your needs.

Skin type: All skin types!

You’ve probably heard about essences and how they’re currently a trendy beauty product among Koreans right now. That’s because they hydrate the skin, something which you definitely need to do at this time of year. Essences should be used either after a cleansing routine, or before you apply makeup. We’ve picked this essence from Mizon as it helps hydrate the skin inside and out!
2. Tony Moly I’m Real Pomegranate Sheet Mask
Skin type: Dry (especially tight) skin

We really love the ‘I’m Real’ sheet mask range, but the pomegranate elasticity mask is great for the colder seasons. If your skin has been feeling a bit tired or dried out lately, then put one of these on your face in the evening on damp skin for up to 30 minutes. Once you take it off, your skin will feel radiant and full of life again! Our top tip with face masks is to leave all the excess product on your face to soak in instead of washing it off.
3. Innisfree Eco Science Eye Cream
Skin type: All skin types, but especially good for sensitive skin

With cold weather can also come heavy winds, which can make your eyes feel raw and cause redness around the eye area. To reduce this, we recommend an eye cream from Innisfree. Just apply it gently around your eyes, particularly in the under eye area to reduce the puffiness. If you have sensitive skin, this cream is great for you as we find it doesn’t irritate the skin.
4. Cosrx Bha Blackhead Power Liquid
Skin type: Oily skin

Contrary to popular belief, using moisturisers and exfoliators on oily skin actually helps to reduce that shiny look while still properly hydrating your skin. This powerful exfoliator from Cosrx is great for penetrating through the oil and getting rid of blackheads and excess sebum. Use this product 2-3 times a week for the best results.
5. Etude House Mineral Bottle Facial Mist Deep Moisture
Skin type: All skin types!

Simply carry a bottle of this facial mist from Etude House in your bag and spray it over your face whenever you feel your skin needs a moisture boost. Just remember to close your eyes before you spray!
