The Asian beauty ritual called "Layering" or "Saho

Discover the beauty ritual straight from Asia 🏯 : Called the "Layering" for South Korea or the "Saho" in Japan

It is an ancestral and anti-aging ritual that helps maintain the health of the skin! In Japan and South Korea, women are known for their flawless porcelain complexions.

What is Layering or Saho?

The term Layering is translated as "Millefeuille" which consists of a superimposition of layers of care for a quest for a perfect complexion, bright, spotless and healthy. It is necessary to respect a precise order in the application of the cares, which go from the lightest formula to the heaviest. This helps the skin to absorb well the different cares applied and to be hydrated, nourished and protected in depth. The number of steps may seem a bit long, but not all of them need to be done every day, such as the exfoliation and the fabric mask for example. In particular, the double cleansing phase can only be applied in the evening, to remove all the impurities from the skin, accumulated throughout the day.

In addition, there are day and night care routines that may differ slightly.
