6. Sun protection
*Last update on 19 Feb 2019
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. SUNSCREEN (AM)
[at the last step op your morning routine, before your make up routine]
Nowadays, most of us probably use a moisturizer or foundation (/BB/CC) with SPF built in. But in order to obtain the right amount of UV protection, these products won’t suffice alone. On average we need 1/4 tablespoon of sunscreen on our face and that can not be achieved by one layer of moisturizer, or one layer of foundation (/BB/CC). Thus we need to layer it up.
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.
SUN RAYS - UV/UVA/UVB
UV = Ultra Violate radiation
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.
