14. Your Shower is Your Weapon
As mentioned previously, hydration is an important part of the Korean Skincare routine. You can maintain the results of your skin clinic treatment by using your shower to steam your face. Redbook recommends “not only using circular motions with your fingers, but also tapping in rotating motions—starting on the forehead, then the cheekbones, cheeks, and working down to the jawbone. Massaging increases circulation and creates a dewy complexion. For added benefit use an oil cleanser to maximize hydration.

Health complications, such as inflammatory, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disorders can be prevented by these antioxidants present in barley tea.” Some of the major beauty benefits is that it serves as a detoxification aid as well.
According to Into The Gloss, “It’s common to see a pitcher of chilled boricha, or roasted barley tea, in the fridge during the spring and summer while the drink is served warm during colder months. Full of antioxidants and fiber, the nutty-tasting drink made from whole grains helps to cleanse your body of toxins, preserve skin elasticity and promote better blood circulation. The tea is a common substitute for water in every Korean household and kid-friendly because it is caffeine-free—it’s literally what’s in the water.”
