The best thing about Korean beauty is that they follow natural, less harmful, less harsh, and effective natural ingredients in their beauty products.

The skincare routine has been followed up since the ancient era. Not many details have been known or found. But it’s said that the Goryeo era was well known for its skincare recipes. Ingredients like Saffron were applied for lip color, various millets and rice flours were used as powders and for skin exfoliation. Lotions were prepared from extracts from various seeds and this all used to be stored in a small container. This was stored as cosmetics at that period. This was all followed up and known since ancient times i.e. Goryeo era. This all was so easily available, convenient and effective that makeup and skincare were done in every house in that era. It was made by both the poor and rich. However, poor people replaced some of the rich ingredients with one that was according to their affordability. For example, Saffron was replaced with some colored bell peppers for their lip color.
