How to Korean Skincare Routine
I’m going to be showing you, how I get the glowing skin effects using Korean skincare routine.
Now I’ve always loved the doing skin effect, And I’ve been trying to get it for a very long time.
Before I start, I want to tell you that these Korean skin care routine tips do not work for everyone.
I know for some people if you apply too many products on your face, You’ll start to break out. For me, it has worked extremely well. And my skin has improved so much.
In this article, I will show you how step by step on what I did to achieve the glass skin effect.
Korean Skincare Routine Step 1 – Removed Your Makeup
Just before you start make sure you have removed your makeup. The first step is to use an oil-based cleanser; Here I’m using the green tea moisture cleansing oil.
If I’m wearing makeup, I would first use a makeup wipe to remove my makeup first.
An oil-based cleanser is more likely to remove your makeup than a water-based cleanser.
It also keeps your face hydrated and doesn’t dry at your skin. Pump out some product and then massage it all over your face to remove any makeup residue off your face.
Wash the cleanser off your face with some warm water and then pat your face dry with a towel.
Korean Skincare Routine Step 2 – Use A Water Based Cleanser
Next step is to use a water-based cleanser. Here I’m using the Etude House baking powder pore cleansing foam.
I’d like to use a foam net as it is more gentle on your face.
Just squeeze out a little bit of product, wet your net and rubber against the product to create the foam.
Once the foam has formed, pull on a net to extract the foam and then massage this around your face, So we are using two cleansers because we are going to double cleanse.
The water-based cleanser is to remove any impurities from your face to give yourself a clean base.
By cleansing twice, your skin would be a lot cleaner and will ensure that you have removed excess makeup from your face and hair.
Korean Skincare Routine Step 3 – Exfoliate
After we’ve double cleansed, we are going to exfoliate. Here, I’m using the Skin Food black sugar mask wash off. It smells amazing as it contains ingredients Such as organic black sugar that nourishes the skin and creates a smooth, clean complexion.
Make sure your face is wet first, before applying the product, so it is more gentle for your skin and doesn’t scratch it.
Sweep, add a bit of product, and then gently massage it all over your face.
Exfoliating gets rid of dead skin to brighten your skin. This step should not be done every day as it would damage your skin and most only do it about two times a week.
I Lastly to mask on for a couple of minutes, and then wash off the mask with some warm water.
Korean Skincare Routine Step 4 – Collagen Toner
Next, we are going to be using the Etude House moistful collagen toner, now that your face is clean. We are going to start putting on products that your skin can absorb.
First I’m going to be using a toner which helps balance the pH level of your skin.
This toner provides moisture and lays my skin feeling soft and ready for Absorption for the next few products I’m about to apply.
Korean Skincare Routine Step 5 – Essence
Next step is the essence; I’m going to be using the COSR X Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence.
This product contains now Mason, which helps repair your skin in areas that have dry patches and to help reduce hyperpigmentation.
This is one of the most important steps to the skin care routine according to Korean women.
Korean Skincare Routine Step 6 – Serum
Next is serum. The serum is like a more concentrated version of the essence.
Here I’m using the Innisfree the green tea seed serum. This product gives your skin a lot of moisture and hydrates your skin.
It gives you a brighter skin tone and also even out your skin tone.
The serum targets the bulk of your skincare issues and is a very important step.
Korean Skincare Routine Step 7 – Face Mask
Next step is the face mask. I’m going to be using the Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask.
I don’t use a face mask every single day, perhaps only once every two to three days I would use it.
A sheet mask allows your skin to absorb nutrients and moisture. I love applying face masks on days where my face is feeling especially dry, as it Instantly gives me much brighter skin and makes my skin feel so much more moisturized.
One thing I need to say is that don’t wear the mask for too long, only wear it for about 10 to 15 minutes.
If you wear the mask for too long, it starts sucking moisture from your skin when the mask dries up.
Once your masker time is up just put a mask off and then let the moisture set into your skin, it might take a while So keep painting yourself.
Korean Skincare Routine Step 8 – Eye Cream
I’m using the Innisfree green tea seed eye cream.
Especially Since I am getting older I’m trying to keep my skin looking young, so I’ve been using a lot of eye creams lately.
I use this in areas where wrinkles are more likely to form; it is very important to keep those areas Hydrated by tapping a product in those spots.
this product contains antioxidants that provide hydration and nourishment to your skin.
Korean Skincare Routine Step 9 – Moisturizer
Now we are going to apply a moisturizer all over our face to keep our face hydrated.
I’m using the Etude House moistful collagen moisturizer. This is one of my favorite creams as it keeps my skin hydrated, smooth, and makes it feel bouncy after using it.
For the final step, it depends on if you’re going out or going to bed. If I’m going out, I’ll be using sunscreen, but because I’m going to bed I’m using the sleeping mask.
so I’m going to be using the Laneige water sleeping mask.
This helps my skin overnight as it helps lock in the moisture while I’m sleeping.
That is a Korean skincare routine, so I want to tell you guys I don’t do all steps every single day.
Sometimes I substitute those steps; sometimes I don’t even do them at all on a particular day. But this is how I achieve this glass look effect on my skin without any makeup.
it is quite time-consuming to do the skincare routine every single day, but I think that once you got a good routine going, your skin would love you for it.
That’s it, and I hope you found it helpful. If you have any questions, please let me know in a comment box down below also share with your friends in facebook, twitter or WhatsApp.
