Korealainen ihonhoito

Katja’s second book, Kuulaan kaunis (Gummerus, 2019), is an in-depth guide to Korean skincare philosophy and beauty traditions. Katja has been studying the roots and methods of Korean beauty culture for years – she’s sure the Korean product developers must have a sixth sense.
