It is currently one of the hottest tips in Korean beauty scene right now.
“Jamsu” is a new fast growing beauty trend from Korea. Jamsu roughly translates to “submerging” or “diving”
What it does? Jamsu helps to mattify your makeup and gives a flawless, melt-proof, smooth and airbrushed finish.
And there is even more good news: jamsu is extremely easy and cheap thing to do. All you need is a bottle of baby powder and a huge bowl of water. (or sink full of water)
How to do it? To try jamsu, first you just cleanse and moisturize your face, then swipe on primer, foundation and concealer, just as you would do normally. After that, cover your face in handfuls of baby powder. Finally you dip your face into cool water for a while (30 seconds or less). After that you just take your face off the water and pat your face dry with a towel.
Note: if you have dry skin, don’t push your face in the water for too long.
The result is indeed perfectly matte and baby soft skin. Plus it will make easier for you to apply other makeup on top.
Even though this bizarre sounding jamsu works miracles, it’s not the most practical thing to do. After all everytime you do this, you need to have huge bowl full of water. It can be a bit of mess.
