#1 CLEAN IT TWICE

Oil Based Cleanser– Korean women typically use two cleansers, starting with an oil-based cleanser to remove oil-based makeup, SPF and other impurities (since water repels oil).

Water based cleanser– Following with a water- based cleanser removes any remaining residue and leaves skin impeccable. The secret is to find a subtle formula that won’t damage or dry out your skin.

#2 TONE IT DOWN

Korean beauty heritage is steeped in natural ingredients passed down from generation to generation. This tradition continues today with toner formulations that tend to shun harsh chemicals and draw from the Earth instead.

#3 ESSENCE

Though formulated with varying viscosities, essences tend to be a bit more fluid and less concentrated than serums. Their main purpose is to moisturize the skin and make the most of the serums that follow. Think of your skin as a sponge: once it’s plumped up with water, everything else absorbs more easily.

#4 SERUMS & AMPOULES

These products are formulated with active ingredients that target specific needs by skin types, such as fine lines, loss of firmness, hyperpigmentation, and dehydration. You can customize your regimen here, adding or removing products as you see fit. You can use them in any order, but generally thicker, more viscous products go on later.

#5 EYE CREAM

The skin around your eyes is thinner and more easily dehydrated, so it should be treated with a cream specifically formulated to protect, nourish, brighten or de-puff.

#6 MOISTURIZER

A moisturizer designed for your skin type creates a barrier that will lock in all the beneficial ingredients you’ve just applied, instead of letting them evaporate out of your skin.

#7 PROTECT

SPF only in the a.m. Sunscreen is huge in Korea, and rightly so. Every morning, finish off your skincare regimen with either a dedicated sunscreen or a BB cream or cushion compact that includes SPF.
