10 Step Korean Skincare Routine

1. First Cleanser: Remove all makeup with a makeup wipe or oil-based remover 

2. Second Cleanser: Use a gentle foaming cleanser 

3. Exfoliate: Use a
chemical wipe, sugar scrub, etc. once or a few times a week

4. Toner/Softner:
Use a cotton pad/ball to swipe across face to balance your skin pH and remove any remaining dirt/make-up

5. Essence: Pat into face to provide additional skin-loving nutrients

6. Mask (
Clay/Mud/Sheet/Face): Use a few times weekly and leave on for 10-20 minutes (read each mask's instructions!)

7. Serum/Ampoule: Choose one with the specific benefit you want for your skin, for example dark spot correcting

Moisturizer: Lighter moisturizer for daytime and a heavier one (like an oil) for nighttime 

9. Eye Cream: ALWAYS pat on using ring finger because ring fingers are the weakest fingers. Optional if under 20 years old, >_<!

10. SPF (Day) or Overnight Sleeping Mask (Night)

Think there are too many steps? The most important takeaways from Korean skincare are:
  • Have a routine and stick to it daily!
  • RE-APPLY SPF every 80-100 minutes when outdoors
  • DO NOT sleep overnight in make-up
  • Layer products from lightest to heaviest (toner < serum < cream)
