Introducing skin sandwiching (also knows as Skin Slugging and Skin Soaking), the latest K-beauty trend taking the world by storm. This technique promises to deeply moisturize your skin, repair the skin barrier, and leave you with brighter, more hydrated, and glowing skin than ever before. In this blog post, we'll discuss what skin sandwiching is, who benefits from it, when to avoid it, and how to include it in your skincare routine.
Skin sandwiching involves applying skincare products to damp skin within three seconds after cleansing to enhance absorption, seal in hydration, and prevent moisture loss. By layering products from lightest to heaviest texture, you can further improve the effectiveness of this technique.
The above picture is the one that inspired us to try out Skin Sandwiching - is it really possible to achieve this hydrated bouncy skin just by changing how you apply your existing products?? We also loved this concept of using what you already have but applying it differently.
Skin sandwiching can benefit anyone, especially those with dry, dull, or lackluster skin. It is also recommended for people who suffer from weakened or damaged skin barriers due to its gentle nature. By locking in moisture, skin sandwiching can help you achieve healthier, more radiant-looking skin.
To include skin sandwiching in your routine, start with a water-based or lightweight toner, essence, or face mist, followed by a hydrating serum and moisturizer. This routine can help you achieve smoother, more nourished skin, and is particularly beneficial during colder months.
I followed this above routine as closely as possible and religiously for 3 weeks straight and I genuinely did start to see how much more "alive" and "bouncy" my skin looked simply because I was hydrating it better and nourishing from within.
By following this simple yet effective routine, you can achieve smoother, more nourished skin, regardless of your skin type. Let us know if you've tried it and how it worked out for you!
