How to De-stress With K-Beauty Skincare

Sometimes it seems that I’m living under a never-ending to-do list of deadlines and obligations and appointments. I check one off and, like a weed, another grows in its place. Even that first-world mandate of “me time” feels like yet another item I need to satisfy before I actually get a break. And while I…

A Deep Dive into Micellar Cleansing Waters

Once upon a time, over a century ago, French women had to wash their now-famously glowing skin with harsh Parisian water. That is, until a British university discovered micelles in 1913.

1 Day, 1 Mask: Korea’s Top Beauty Trend

It’s called “1 day, 1 pack.” And while this is not a reference to an unfortunate nicotine habit, it may well be just as addictive. 1 일1팩, as it’s called in Korean, is a beauty trend that originated in Korea some years ago, when stories began emerging about Korean celebrities attributing their amazingly pristine skin…

A New Exfoliating HG: Salon de Tte

Going to the bathhouse a few times a month with my grandmother and mother, was a time-honored tradition in my family. It will be an almost all day event, where we would spend hours talking in the steam room, dipping in various botanical-infused pools, wrap up our hair in conditioning masks and face mask to…

Experience “Velvet-Skin”: Ultra Dewy and Ready to Absorb

As we know, hydrated skin is healthier skin. This is the foundational rule behind K-Beauty that helps people of all skin tones and types transform their complexions for the better. There are some ingredients that are native to Asian skincare that we rarely see in Western beauty, and Galactomyces is one of these culprits: pronounced…
