THE PERFECT KOREAN BEAUTY PRODUCTS FOR MUMS
Mother’s Day is fast approaching!
To celebrate we’re taking a look at some of the perfect Korean Beauty products for Mums!
KEY SKIN CONCERNS
Many Mums share similar skin concerns – dull skin (which can be caused by a wide range of factors, include stress, lack of sleep and deficiencies in diet), skin becoming drier with age, pigmentation (caused by pregnancy and sun exposure), as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
In order to combat these common skin problems, look out for these ingredients, which take care of concerns like dryness, dullness, pigmentation, ageing and more:
Peptides – ideal for anti-aging, peptides have cell-communicating and skin restoring abilities.
Galactomyces – a type of yeast extract made through fermentation technology, galactomyces offers nourishment, hydration, renewal and toning.
Niacinamide – a Vitamin B3, niacinamide improves skin’s elasticity, enhances barrier function and revives skin’s tone and texture.
Adenosine – a yeast-derived ingredient, adenosine functions as a soothing and skin-restoring agent.
rh-Oligopeptide – a small polypeptide of 53 amino acids that stimulate epidermal cell growth, this ingredient has been shown to speed the healing of wounds and reduce scarring.
Ceramides – lipid molecules found within cell membranes, ceramides form a protective layer that plump skin and retain moisture.
Sodium Hyaluronate – composed of amino and uronic acids, Sodium Hyaluronate is a naturally occurring chemical that is able to retain up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, making it an excellent moisturiser.
