The Wisdom of Cleansing to Get Clear Skin

The Wisdom of Cleansing to Get Clear Skin

The traditional makeup style of Korea was not heavy enough to conceal natural skin tone, unlike that of other countries. Since natural skin tone could be seen through makeup, cleansing and basic skincare were considered important. The skin, along with the lungs, is simultaneously the inlet of clean oxygen and the outlet of the impurities. Clogged pores cannot let impurities and toxins out, thus causing skin troubles and failure to get rid of pollutants. Keeping your skin clean by cleansing is the best regimen for beauty and health.
Then how did the women of the Joseon Dynasty cleanse their skin? [Gyuhapchongseo] mentions a cleansing method, called ‘Dohwamyeon.’“ Madame Choi, the wife of Nosachim from Northern Qi, had special skills, including mixing peach blossoms with snow on a spring day and applying it onto her kids’ and her own face. She said that washing their faces with white snow left the skin radiant, and cleansing the skin with safflower refined the skin.” This tells us that they used peach blossoms and safflower to cleanse the skin.
Cleansing with water that was used to clean rice or grains was already popular. They ground mung beans, red beans, and soybeans into powdered form to exfoliate their faces. Mung beans are considered exceptional for detoxification purposes, and have long been used to decrease irritation caused by makeup. They remove excess sebum, revitalize tired skin, and restore the skin. The saponin in the mung beans eliminates the buildup of impurities and blemishes, and cools the skin to treat acne and other skin conditions.
Cleansing with water used to wash rice or rice bran is still practiced today, and its efficacies are widely known. The rich minerals and nutrients found in rice refine and smooth the skin, and soothe redness caused by inflammation.
The ingredients used for cleansing should keep the skin clean, and rejuvenate the skin. They should not be irritating because stimuli will make the skin’s texture rough, and cause other skin troubles. The cleansing techniques that cleanse and refine the skin must have been everyone’s goal since the olden times. Sulwhasoo’s Gentle Cleansing Line is proof of good wisdom that has come closer to reality.
