South Korea has been dominating the beauty industry for decades. The Korean beauty philosophy relies on advanced techniques, yet very down-to-earth principles: magic exists and it can be achieved with a committed routine. Yin Your Skin® introduces you to the unbeatable strategies of Korean skincare and gives you clear instructions on applying the right methods to your skin.
When you touch your face, your nervous system relaxes and you get in touch with your unique beauty. This is self-love and self-care in its purest form. A holistic skincare routine, balanced lifestyle and committed self-care are a reliable recipe for healthy, vital and glowing skin. That’s why Yin Your Skin® teaches you all the best holistic practices that Katja Kokko has learned during her successful, two-decade long career in genuine beauty.
The Yin Your Skin® skincare regime aims for long-term results and optimal wellbeing for the skin – skin that looks healthy at any age. The Yin Your Skin® skincare philosophy replaces the term anti-aging with healthy aging. The foundation for the entire skincare philosophy is that the skin is not a separate entity from the rest of the body, even if it’s the most superficial and visible part. The skin is our largest organ that provides outermost protection for organs, bones, muscles, joints, tissue, nerves and veins – the whole package. Anything happening beneath the skin affects how it looks on the outside. The opposite is true, too: anything the skin gets in contact with ranging from cosmetics to pollution and changing weather conditions affects its appearance and main task: to protect.
Korean skincare is well-known for its multi-step routines and abundance of products, but Koreans have also branded a skincare trend that’s perfect for minimalists – skip care. According to the Yin Your Skin® skincare philosophy, the number of products is always chosen according to the skin’s unique needs. As you treat your skin with the efficient, holistic self-care methods, you can create yourself a minimalist skip care routine with a minimal amount of products.
The main principles of the Yin Your Skin® skincare regime are to optimize the skin’s own moisture-fat balance, boost the immune defence system, maintain the pH balance, provide plenty of hydration and adopt optimal application techniques and gua sha massage.
The Yin Your Skin online course includes a 20-minute video with detailed instructions for a multi-step Korean skincare regime, which will show you the right order and most efficient methods for applying products. You can also download extensive materials on the basics of skincare that will help you see why the method is best suited for skin.
