Korean skincare is old news, but it still works. The poreless porcelain look will never go out of style, so we’re here to jumpstart your 2017 with a refresher!
8 steps might seem like overkill, but trust us, once you get into the habit, it’ll be like second nature. Watch the video below and gauge if you can religiously adhere to the routine (you probably should, if you want K-pop skin).
1. Oil Cleanser
Removes oil-based debris (makeup, spf, pollutants) that water-based cleansers can’t remove.
2. Foam Cleanser
Cleans water-based debris, like sweat and dirt.
Restores skin’s pH balance, which is key to preventing acne. It also improves absorption of nutrients. Western toners act as cleansing astringents, while Asian toners add moisture.
A concentrated formula that optimizes your skin’s natural cell turnover rate, and is packed with nutrients and moisture. This is a must for Korean skincare.
A more concentrated version of essence, it hydrates and improves uneven skintone.
A moisturizing treatment with the consistency of lotion. Anti-ageing, skin-tightening, and moisturizing.
7. Eye Cream
Prevents wrinkles around the most fragile area of the face.
