This Summer has undoubtedly been one of the hottest we have experienced in a long while – the Sun has been beaming down strong and it’s called for even more attention to be paid to our skincare routines. Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we got your back! Here are our top 5 summer essentials for Korean skincare products! Whether you are new to skincare on a budget or looking to change up your existing routine, the products on this list will not disappoint and are all available from Skin2Seoul!

One of the most important things for your skin is to keep it hydrated, but in a way that is gentle. Sometimes less is more. This toner only has 5 ingredients with 91% of this being the Coptis Japonica Root Extract; a plant-based ingredient harnessing medicinal properties to hydrate, cool and soothe sensitive and irritated skin. This is perfect for those days spent in the midday sun to avoid your skin drying out. Free from artificial fragrances, dyes, colours and irritants, you can trust that it will not cause breakouts.

One of the most important steps in a skincare routine is actually something you do at the very end! A summer skincare regime is not complete without a good quality sunscreen! Applying sunscreen to your face and neck on a daily basis is the single most effective way to keep your skin healthy and young as well as reducing your risk of serious skin conditions. The main thing to look for when choosing a sunscreen is the SPF level. The Beauty of Joseon Relief Sun has a high level of protection at SPF50, which means you can go longer before reapplying. It also contains 30% rice extract, probiotics and fermenting lysate ingredients which keep the skin barrier from breaking.

If you think applying sunscreen once in the morning is enough to last in the summer sun, think again! It is so important when you are outdoors to reapply SPF regularly to ensure sufficient protection from damaging UV rays. This is where sun sticks come in. Not only are sun sticks super convenient if you are on the go, but they are also incredibly refreshing and are often packed full of skin-loving ingredients. The Instree Hyaluronic Acid Airy Sun Stick is formulated with 8 types of hyaluronic acid, each with a different molecular size to ensure and provide intense, long-lasting hydration in addition to a variety of natural ingredients with antioxidant properties. We all know how beneficial hyaluronic acid is for our skin so to get a two in one in this product is such a treat!

Heimish has become popular in recent years for their outstanding Marine Care Eye Cream. I have to admit, I loved this product so much that it has become a permanent part of my own skincare routine. But their eye creams are not the only product to get excited about. This Heimish Watermelon Moisture Soothing Gel Cream is a lightweight, hydrating gel moisturizer which is perfect for those with combination skin or oily skin and those who are looking for a lightweight moisturizer during warmer weather. It is packed full of natural ingredients such as watermelon extract designed to leave a cooling effect on the skin as well as Aloe Vera and Shea Butter for the ultimate hydration experience. It also contains hyaluronic acid, a trending ingredient this summer it seems!

Anyone who is into K-Beauty will have heard about Etude House! Our final recommendation today is the Watermelon Red Shade from their Dear Darling Water Gel Tint collection. We all know what it’s like to wear makeup in hot weather and it’s safe to say it’s not exactly comfortable at the best of times. Luckily, this cute water lip tint has hydrating benefits and doubles as a lip balm so you get a long-lasting colour and shine without feeling sticky! This Etude House lip tint is inspired by the delight of summer and ice cream leaving your lips feeling hydrated, refreshed, bright and bouncy all day long!
