Have you heard about the famous Korean skincare routine? Often we try to use so many varying types of makeup and cosmetic products to make our skin look better and flawless. But most times, the results seem to be unsatisfactory. Korean skin and their skincare routine have been a thing of envy for a long time, even for people in the Philippines. So, if you want to make your skin look glowy and flawless like the Koreans, you can try it out yourselves.
Step 01: Cleanse
Every skincare routine starts with cleansing. So does the Korean skincare routine. But any cleanser won’t work. You will need to use an oil-based cleanser. Massage your face with this cleanse in a circular motion which will increase the circulation.
Step 02: Double Cleanse
One of the major distinction is that cleansing your skin once is not enough. This step requires you to use a water-based cleanser. After this, your skin will become very clean.
Step 03: Exfoliate
This is also a step that you should follow even in a normal skincare routine. This will remove all your dry skin and clean the clogged pores. You can exfoliate your skin on the alternative days of a week. For too sensitive skin, once a week exfoliation is enough.
Step 04: Toning
Toning will help balance the pH levels. Use a toner that won’t make your skin dry. Apply it with cotton but don’t rub too hard.
Step 05: Essence
This step is what makes Korean skincare different. The essence is a hybrid between a toner and skin serum. It helps to hydrate the skin and repair the cells. It can be applied directly on the skin.
Step 06: Serum or Ampoule
The serum is a concentrated version of essence. Take only little of it and apply it on your face. This is done to maintain or better your skin health. You can get rid of wrinkles, dullness, acne, etc. on your skin.
Step 07: Sheet Masks
Heard of this one? It has become quite popular with women all over the world. These masks are made of sheet fabrics that are full of serums that have Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamins. All you need to do is keep this mask on your face for 20-30 minutes. But you don’t need to do it every day. Once or twice every week is enough.
Step 08: Eye Cream
Wrinkles always appear on the eyes first. So, using eye-cream from your late 20s is not a bad idea. Apply eye cream in the under-eye area. This will remove your dark circles too.
Step 09: Face Cream
Choose your face cream carefully depending on your skin type. It will keep the moisture in your skin intact giving you soft skin.
Step 10: SPF
If you are living on an island like in the Philippines, then SPF is a must. It will protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
With this, the Korean skincare routine comes to an end. If you don’t have all the makeup and cosmetic products needed, buy them today. And start following this routine.
