Although the focus of the latest K-beauty products in the U.S. tends to be on clearing acne and unwinding with a soothing sheet mask, mature skin definitely doesn’t go unnoticed in the world of Korean skin care. Here’s proof: Many products feature brand-new, innovative technology, like the microscopic needles in the Private Doctor Minus Serum and the first-ever sleeping mask for eyes from Laneige. Others are spiked with time-honored ingredients, such as ginseng and green tea found in Sulwhasoo and AmorePacific’s products.
To make Korea’s skin-care offerings for mature skin easier to navigate, we called in some reinforcements. We rounded up Best of Beauty Award-winning Korean skin-care products that were carefully picked by Allure editors based not only in New York but also Seoul. On top of that, we also asked our editor in chief, Michelle Lee, to share her personal faves, as well as Renée Chow of beloved skin-care blog Gothamista. Altogether, you’ll have enough suggestions to revamp your routine with incredible K-beauty picks for mature skin. These moisturizers, serums, masks, and essences are sure to be like a gallon of the crispest, coldest water to quench your skin’s thirst and restore its plumpness to newborn-baby levels.
