Facial Hair Method
Wash your face following the texture of your fine hairs. Fine hairs are the small hairs on your face. This method also used when you are putting on moisturizer. Follow your fine hairs to maintain the consistency. First, wash your face with warm water to open the pores. Mix foaming cleanser with warm water and make a blob of foam about the size of egg. Then, wipe the bottom of the chin clean with the back of the hand. But, when rubbing or cleansing your face, do it against the direction of your hair. This method will help you to prevent skin aging.
Before washing your face, don’t forget to wash your hands first, and make sure your hands don’t touch your face! When you wash your face, Go Hyun-jung recommends cleansing from behind your ears to the jawline area, and then to the face. The part of your face you should clean first is the T-zone area (forehead and nose). After cleansing the T-zone area, the next step is cleansing U-zone area (cheek). The T-zone area must be done first, because this area tend to be more oily than U-zone area. Also, because the U-zone area is drier, you have to make sure that the area isn’t being exposed to the cleanser for too long. More importantly, you should wash in an inward direction to help pores more effectively. Using this method, Go Hyun-jung only takes 15 minutes to wash her face.
Two Step Masks
Use a two-step mask every week. The first step is using a mask booster, to prime the skin. Next, use a sheet mask with serum to help nourish the skin. Keep doing this routine every week to make your skin look dewy and radiant.
Having breakouts? bathe your pimples with salted, lukewarm water to help sanitize the acne, reduce inflammation, and prevent infection. Also, don’t touch your acne with bare hands!
Applying Skincare Products
Skincare products should be applied from the center of the face, outwards. Before putting skincare products on your face, you should warm them on your hands, then press both hands to your face, to make sure the product is absorbed into your skin. Throw your skincare products out after two months to maintain hygiene. For the neck , start from beside your jawline and then towards your neck with ‘C-Shape’ motion.
