Have you always longed for that fresh, glowing, no-makeup look? With this step-by-step guide to Korean skincare routines, anyone can attain healthy skin. But Skincare for Your Soul takes it one step further―it guides you to a place where skincare is also self-care.
The Korean skin care journey. As much as we'd like, glowing, clear skin doesn't happen overnight. But there is beauty in the process―not just the results. Author Jude Chao links skincare to self-care culture, giving readers a practical guide to developing an ideal skincare routine and using it to help manage stress, anxiety, and depression. The Korean skincare routine invites us to look at our skincare not only as a way to reduce lines and wrinkles or clear up breakouts, but as a tool for developing our self-care habits.
Steady improvement is the goal. Photoshopped perfection is neither realistic nor a healthy goal. What matters is caring for our mental health and building our self-esteem by intentionally taking time each day to give our skin some love. But it starts with changing how we view skincare and developing a routine that fits our personal needs and goals, and Chao helps you do that.
Dive into Chao's book on K-beauty and discover:
- An easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to skincare
- A clear breakdown of skincare products (not brands), and pros and cons to help customize your routine
- How Korean skin care can be a reliable and effective mental health management tool
- Tips for avoiding common types of exploitative and manipulative beauty marketing
