April Routine BODY CARE Hello everyone, this is skin expert Kim~ Gyul. As soon as I wake up, in the morning, I take a spoon of olive oil on an empty stomach. It’s good for the body, but it doesn’t taste good at all so, after I hold my breath and swallow it, I rinse my mouth with water. Shall we go shower now? Before I wash my hair, I thoroughly comb it.
This will remove the dust stuck in my hair, and I feel like my hair gets very clean after washing. For the first wash, I just pump once and shampoo roughly . A rough first wash lets you thoroughly clean and refresh your hair while shampooing. I’ll be shampooing a second time. I will now tell you my secret tip. For healthy scalp and hair, 1 pump of organic shampoo and for a squeaky clean feeling and fragrance, 1 pump of regular cosmetic shampoo. I mix the two and shampoo. This way you can have the benefits of both the organic shampoo and the regular cosmetic shampoo, while washing your hair. I will rinse my hair thoroughly, from the center. Now, I’ll wash my body. I have a confession to make. The skin on my body has keratosis pilaris, also called chicken skin. So I tend to worry about my skin’s moisture and I don’t use deep cleansing body washes. I lather up a body wash with natural active ingredients and scrub my whole body with it. Ah, for ladies, it would be nice to use an acid-balanced feminine cleanser, wouldn’t it? After showering, without completely drying off the water, I apply a body lotion.
These days I use shea butter and coconut oil alternately, by rubbing it in my palms and applying it all over my body. By applying it when the body is still damp, it will retain moisture and be easier to apply. For the ends of my hair, which dry, I use coconut oil and hair essence in 1:1 ratio, and apply it to the ends. This helps define the curls and add volume to my hair. Using too much coconut oil can make your hair greasy. So please be careful. That’s all for my body care routine. It’s the cherry blossom flower festival and flower viewing season. So I hope you are able to clean off all the fine-dust and pollen, and start your day feeling fresh. Today as well, shall we start the day with lots of energy? .
