If you’re deep in the Korean fever like the rest of the world, then you know K-beauty is a trend that just keeps on growing! Whether it be the dewy look or glass skin, Korea has been dominating the beauty scene. Today we’ll list down the rules of the usual regimen Koreans do to achieve flawless skin all day long!
DO A DOUBLE CLEANSE
Doing a double cleanse can help you remove different kinds of impurities from your skin. Do one with an oil and then another with your favorite cleanser. Don’t forget to massage your face! Our skin loves a little touch of love.
PUT ON SOME TONER
Putting on some toner can help your skin balance out its pH levels, keep out bacteria, and also bring back moisture to your skin. You can opt to apply toner through the usual cotton bud and dab method. But you can also try it the Korean way by warming it up on your hands and softly patting it on your skin!
APPLY AN ESSENCE
Essences are good for your skin because its thin consistency helps penetrate your skin deeper allowing moisture to seep in. In addition, essences allow better absorption for the following products in your routine-- which in this case, you will definitely need!
TRY AN EMULSION
Add in an extra layer of moisture on your skin by applying an emulsion. Emulsions are light formulations just like essences but they’re packed with more ingredients and help lock in extra moisture in your skin. This rule may vary depending on your skin type though so do pay attention to your skin’s needs.
PUT ON A SERUM
Putting on a serum will help you get the extra help you need for your problem areas. A serum is a little thicker in consistency than an essence or an emulsion so feel free to adjust this step to your needs.
POP ON A SHEET MASK
To add in more goodness to your skin put on a sheet mask and let the essences do its magic! It typically takes 15-20 minutes for your skin to absorb the essences but at least you’ll feel renewed and refreshed after.
DAB IN SOME EYE CREAM
Preventive skincare is good for anyone. By putting on an eye cream, you’re able to moisturize the thin layer of skin around your eyes and prevent fine lines in the future. The eyes are the window to the soul so make sure you keep them smize ready!
MOISTURIZE AGAIN WITH MOISTURIZER
This might sound a little too much but yes the Korean regimen typically adds in a moisturizer on top of all those moisturizing formulations. This step isn’t always necessary since our skin varies differently but if you’re aiming for that dewy skin finish you can definitely add some more moisturizer.
GET SOME SUNSCREEN PROTECTION
Like anywhere in the world, Koreans are just as exposed to the UV rays. Hence they take sunscreen protection seriously and incorporate it in their everyday routine. Just make sure your sunscreen passes the recommended SPF rating.
FINISH WITH NIGHT TIME SHEET MASKS
For evenings, you can put on an evening sheet mask or a sheet mask with extra moisturizing ingredients on top of the usual cleanse, tone, and moisturize steps from above. Since our skin repairs when we have our good night’s sleep putting on a sheet mask can further help this process. This is it! Get ready to wake up to beautiful, hydrated skin!
