Skincare Focus: Cleaning the Face

Cleansing or washing the face seems to be a simple ritual, but it is more crucial and detailed than it seems. It appears to take little effort, yet the outcome of face washing is apparent.

Skincare 101: The First Steps

Skin is a delicate organ of the body that needs a bit of a particular care because it basically protects the inside of the body. It also helps with feeling everything by touch. Unfortunately, skin is also the first body organ that got exposure from the air pollution of the surroundings. Pollution can cause many unwanted things for the skin that includes wrinkles and dark spot. Don't we all want to prevent having wrinkles at early age? The only thing that works to prevent those undesirable problems is by taking care of your skin. First step of skincare is to simply keep your face clean by washing your face every single day, in the morning and at night before bed. We all have different methods on how to clean our face, but I personally always look up to a Youtube video of a lady named Isabelle Belis showing step by step on how she cleans her face.

Since then, I have been an avid watcher of the show, and my obsession with K-pop may have faded, but my obsession with beauty lives on. Why is that the case?
