Seoul, South Korea
Ever since South Korea introduced the world to BB creams back 2011, we've been looking to the Far East for beauty guidance and skincare innovations. A dermatology destination - not to mention the plastic surgery capital of the world - Seoul is striding ahead in the skincare stakes. Known for their flawless complexions and extensive skincare routines - taking care of your skin is something you're taught as a child in Korea - Seoulites are skipping tired one- or two-step regimens in favour of targeted skin treatments, acne laser therapy and radiance shots. With many clinics now offering English-speaking consultants to cater to a growing overseas clientele, it's time to swot up on the latest skin science - the ultramodern Sulwhasoo Spa is a great starting point - and book your flights ASAP.
