Korean skincare trends have increasingly started highlighting the benefits of ferments, but it may surprise you to know that ferments in skincare is nothing new. Today we’re introducing you to 3 secrets of modern and traditional Korean skincare that no one should go without knowing!
Protects skin barrier with more potent formulations
Our skin comes in contact with the bacteria-filled world we live in, even when we don’t leave the house. Learning to protect our skin (and keeping it looking and feeling fresh) can seem like a challenge sometimes, but that’s the first benefit of using ferments in skincare – the fermentation process creates an antioxidant-rich barrier to protect and restore skin.
Balances skin to minimize irritation and redness
Our daily lives can be hard on our skin. Whether you’re working from home or commuting from the country or living an urban lifestyle, dealing with stress and other factors can lead to an unbalanced microbiome both in and under our skin, leading to acne-prone or irritated skin. Luckily, one of the benefits of ferments can help save the day – they balance the “good” and “bad” bacteria on our skin and reduce inflammation.
Hydrates skin to keep it even, smooth, and firm
Listen, we could all stand to drink more water, but skincare ferments are another way to get your face and body glowing. When your skin is balanced, then it has more of a chance to absorb nutrients through enzymatic reactions that lead to a hydrating effect, and that can even help restore firmness and add other anti-aging and calming effects too.
That’s a wrap on today’s 3 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Ferments In Your Skincare. Stay tuned for more informed skincare tips!
