    Charlotte Cho Releases the Ultimate Guide to Korean Beauty

    Charlotte Cho, founder of Soko Glam, has released a guide to Korean beauty. Charlotte Cho, founder of online Korean beauty destination Soko Glam, is releasing her first book and it’s officially the new K-Beauty bible. In The Little Book of Skin Care ($15), Cho talks about the journey that led her to launch Soko Glam in 2012, from her do-nothing attitude about skin care as a teen in California (“I was determined to blaze my own trail, and going to sleep without moisturizing my face — or even (gasp!) washing it — was my forte.”) to diving deep into the world of K-beauty after moving to Seoul after college.
