Founder's Tips: Angela Jia Kim's Secrets to Transform Your Skin
Hi beauties, I'm thrilled to share some of my favorite easy tips to transform your skin. Drawing inspiration from my "Manhattan mom" lifestyle and the K-beauty routines of my Korean mom and aunts, I've gathered my favorite unique tips that take just a New York minute.
From the unexpected glow that dancing can infuse into your skin, to the surprising concept of "eating" your water (yes, you read that right!), these succinct tips provide a fresh and invigorating approach to glowing inside out.
Let dancing be your secret skincare weapon. Increased blood flow delivers more oxygen and nutrients to skin cells, resulting in a brighter complexion, improved texture, and a natural radiance.
There are many dance clubs here in New York City, but why limit yourself to a night out? Dance to my partner’s dance playlist while doing laundry or watering the plants!
Instead of using one heavy moisturizer, layer several lighter products with different consistencies, from thin to thick. This "layering" technique can provide effective hydration without feeling heavy on the skin.
We’ve numbered the Savor Beauty products from 0-5 so you know how to layer them, taking the guesswork out!
Spend one minute on mindful “skin-breathing.” Inhale peace, exhale stress. This easy practice curbs cortisol, helping to keep breakouts at bay. Oxygenating your cells through deep breathing also promotes circulation, giving the skin a healthy glow.
Hot water can strip the skin of natural oils, leading to dryness. Korean actress and skincare book author, Hyun-Jung Go, recommends splashing cold water onto the face after a deep cleanse to tighten pores and maintain hydration, leaving a refreshed feeling.
Hit the refresh button on your skin's health. Embarking on a 24-hour reset with nutritious smoothies and soups can flush out toxins and boost hydration. It's a brief commitment that may inspire a lifestyle change.
While coffee can perk you up, remember to balance each sip with water 1:1. Excess caffeine can dehydrate, but matching intake with water ensures skin stays hydrated and vibrant. For an added glow, I love treating my skin with generous beauty oils before my morning coffee so my pores can wake up and sip in the nourishment together!
Chill green tea bags in the refrigerator after using them, then place them over your closed eyes for a few minutes. The tannins in tea can help reduce puffiness and revive tired eyes.
Achieve a glowing complexion by savoring water-rich treats like watermelon, cucumber, and strawberries. Beyond delighting your palate, these fruits amplify your hydration game from within. Your skin will relish in the plumping and radiant effects.
My mom always told me, “Stop touching your face–you’re putting germs and dirt into your pores!” A small gesture can lead to big results. By reducing how often you touch your face, you can minimize the transfer of oils and dirt, ultimately leading to fewer breakouts.
