It’s been a few years now since South Korea has become worldwide known for its skincare secrets. Many people are especially interested in the 10 step skincare routine, but don’t know where to start/are confused in the midst of all those products. Here is a clear guide on how to take good care of your skin using this method.
1. ☾ Oil cleanser
During a Korean skincare routine, first thing you need to do is learn how to double cleanse your face. You start with massaging an oil cleanser all over your face to wash away all your makeup.
2. ☼ ☾ Water based cleanser
Adding a second step to the cleansing will help you clean, almost perfectly, your skin from all the impurities the oil cleanser might have not picked up. In the Morning, you can use only water to clean your face or your water based cleanser.
3. ☾ Exfoliation
This step is not mandatory to do everyday, nor is it recommended to do it too often, especially for sensitive skin. But doing it once or twice a week will help you clean your pores and remove dead skin cells.
4. ☼ ☾ Toning
Applying a toner on your face, rather with a cotton pad or your hand, will prep your skin for the next products and balance its pH level.
5. ☼ ☾ Essence
This step will help your cellular turnover and gives you a more youthful appearance.
6. ☼ ☾ Ampoule
Similar to serum, they are also highly concentrated products to help you target specific skin needs. Their concentration is also usually higher than the serums.
7: ☼ ☾ Serum
These concentrated formulas act against specific skin problems such as wrinkles, dehydration or acne.
8: ☾ Sheet Mask
The sheet will allow the products to be fully absorbed into your skin. There are sheetmasks for any and all skin types and concerns you might be targeting. It also helps you relax.
9: ☼ ☾ Eye cream
Applying an eye cream regularly will help in reducing your dark circles and eventual puffiness under your eyes.
10: ☼ ☾ Moisturizer
To seal the moisture into your face.
11: ☼ Sunscreen
You should apply sunscreen on your face every morning, even if you are not planning to go out, in order to prevent the development of dark spots or wrinkles.
