Into Korean beauty but not sure how to make the transition to spring and summer products yet? K-Beauty addict Ammarah (@ammarahblog) can help you out! We asked her for 10 of her favorite products to get you through those hot, humid, oily days to glowing perfection. Here's what she had to say:


"As spring and summer are just around the corner, it's the best time to share some Korean skincare products. I will be covering everything from cleansing balm, to sunscreen, and to sleeping masks that you will need to try this spring and summer (if you haven't already). 


Let me introduce you to mild, calming, and hydrating products which are well-known in the K-beauty community. K-beauty brands focus more on mild formulations and calming ingredients like mugwort and Centella, which work for most skin types. I made this product list keeping in mind most skin types and maskne, which is becoming more common these days."

Ammarah Afzal's mybest Summary

Most of the products I mentioned above are budget-friendly, great for problematic skin, and are mild. Your skin takes time to adjust, so don't go too harsh on it. Patience is the key to healthy skin. 


You don't have to go all-out and follow the 10 steps Korean skincare method, either; if three products work for you, just use them. Be gentle to your skin. Make sure to cleanse, stay hydrated, moisturize and wear SPF daily. I hope you liked my picks for spring and summer Korean skincare!
