Special protection during the day

This might be the most important step in the morning since it helps your skin to defend against all the harmful rays from the sun, causing dark spots, skin damage, fine lines, and wrinkles, a.k.a. prematurely aging of your skin.

 

10. SUN PROTECTION (AM)

[at the last step op your morning routine, before your make up routine]

Today many of us already wear a moisturizer and / or foundation (/ BB / CC) with SPF. But such a product alone is not enough to prepare sufficient UV protection. Basically, we would need 1/4 tablespoon of sunscreen to protect ourselves properly. The SPF protection in such a product has been diluted and that is why we always recommend that you always apply a separate sunscreen.

Unlike their Western variant, the Korean sunscreens are very lightweight, or even weightless, absorbs quickly, and wears really well underneath makeup. On lazy days you can even use it as your base makeup instead of a BB cream.

Skin improvement is being patient! It is important to give a new skin care routine/product a trial period of at least 1 month since your skin will renew its cells each 28 days. In case you notice (a small) dfference, please try another 2-3 months.
