I love skin care of all kinds. Skin care made of ingredients from all the world, but Korea is where I left my heart and soul♥. My first visit to Korea changed my life. Seoul, Korea is where my love for skin care and my skin journey really began. That was where the magic happened and I finally found my life purpose.
I loved Korean skin care before Sephora started carrying it and before it was the trendy thing to use. I fell in love with Korean skin care because they use natural ingredients from the earth and focus on nourishing the skin. Even in their acne lines they use tons are ingredients that help soften, moisturize and hydrate your skin. I’m not saying all Korean skin care but a lot of it.
In fact I got rid of and healed my acne without using an “acne skin care line”. It is pretty crazy when you think about. There are so many brands that advertise their skin care lines cure acne. Really though most of them are just make your acne worse and/or making your skin reliant on their products. The fact is most acne skin care lines just dry you out, irritate your skin and completely destroy your skin’s natural barrier. There are some exceptions and there are times that acne lines DO work for people, however I personally NEVER got a good result using an acne specific line.
Believe me, I’ve been there. Ive been that girl that sat in the bathroom scrubbing my face with salicylic acid and a clairasonic brush. I have been that girl that was afraid of the word oil when it came to putting it on my skin. I was that girl that looked over dry and crusty all the time. I was that girl that did everything that was only making my acne worse.
After my first trip to Korea I came back and went to school to be a skin specialist. Where my love for skin grew immensely. I’m totally in love♥ with skin, skin care, and taking care of skin. Most important thing I learned in school, if you really want to fix troubled skin, acne prone skin, get healthier, glower, brighter and younger skin you have to know theres no magic pill or over night quick fix. It will take time and topical products are not the only or even the most important part to achieving healthy skin. There are many things like diet, certain exercise movements, supplements and lastly products that will help get you that beautiful skin you’re longing for.
Just so you know, I don’t believe in “perfect skin”. To be accurate there is NO such thing as “perfect skin”. We all have something we think is “wrong” or that is not in align with what our society defines as “perfect”. Maybe we don’t like our pores, we have acne, dark spots, oily skin, circles, sensitive skin or really dry skin. What ever it is we all have something we want to improve or change. And that is okay. I’m always trying to find a way to improve my skin, first it was my acne, now it’s the scars, texture and hydration. What I do believe is there is a “perfect skin for YOU”. It may not look just like that girl on instagram but it’s yours. Sometimes all it takes is for you to peel a few layers back to see it. I try to focus on continually improving skin from what it was yesterday instead of comparing my skin to someone else’s.
Now to this amazing Korean skin care product I’ve been loving♥. It’s called Krave. It’s great for people with dry skin, acne, dull skin, oily skin- ALL skin. It is packed with my two top favorite natural ingredients in the world! Matcha green tea and Kale! Mmm I love all green good things for my skin! I love it because it feeds my skin. The Matcha Hemp cleanser doesn’t strip my skin at all and it feels so soft after. The Kale-Lalu-yAHA is well just up my ally. AHA’s are half my soul! Even though I’m pretty used to AHA’s this on pushes my skin ever so slightly. This one isn’t that strong but the benefits are visible and amazing. Although it is mild it makes it perfect for me to use once a day! I’d just like to add the name Krave and the packages is so on point. So in love…Thank you Liah Loo for the amazing product.♥
I’m always trying new skin care products but this one is one of my favorites at the moment!
