Seoul, South Korea
Of all the far-flung destinations, none are tied to beauty quite like Korea. It’s the birthplace of snail mucin and 10-step routines, all in the name of a complexion that’s glassy, bouncy and seemingly poreless. K-Beauty products are in no short supply, but Sulwhasoo’s First Care Activating Serum is in a league of its own. Since launch, it’s sold two trillion units thanks to the signature JAUM Balancing Complex™ – five herbs perfectly combined to nourish, calm and hydrate the skin. The critical element is to apply directly after cleansing to boost all that comes after. Glass skin, minus the flight to Seoul.
