K-Beauty has been known to be at the top of the list if we’re talking about beauty standards. Since natural beauty has been getting more popularized by Hollywood and Korean celebrities, K-pop idols, and social media influencers, more people have been following routines and tips on getting healthy skin. It’s been getting more and more popular these days and most people use it as references in their makeup routines. Korean skincare is a part of K-Beauty that should also be as important as makeup. In this article, Ziptoss has made a step-by-step guide for you in Korean skin care to follow and try to have healthy-looking skin.
The first step is to always remove your makeup. Makeup clogs your pores and causes more acne, so it’s always important to remove any makeup residue before sleeping, or doing a skincare routine.
Next step is to cleanse your face with a cleansing gel or cream. This is to remove excess makeup or dirt that is still attached to your skin especially if you’ve been out all day, our skin collects dirt from the air and sticks to our pores without being visible.
Exfoliating removes dead skin cells on the top layer and restores the softness of your skin. This can be done once a week to give your skin enough time to rest and create new skin cells. While exfoliating, making small and circular motions using your fingers can help exfoliate your face evenly, you can also use exfoliation tools such as pore brushes, silicone brushes, and exfoliating gloves
In this step, you’ll be needing a tonic that can moisturize, soothe and deep clean the pores of your skin. Most tonics contain conditioning and moisturizing ingredients such as rose water that gives your skin a healthy glow.
You can use a face mask once a week to make your skin feel moisturized and refreshed. Mask packs also promote anti-aging benefits and reduce swelling.
Essence is a water-based formula that consists of ingredients that help hydrate and boost the quality of your skin. This is just a bonus step if you want to improve the quality of your skin.
The next step is applying serum. Serum is an important step if you want to moisturize your skin evenly. It also prevents redness of the skin, swelling, and blemishes.
An essential step for people with tired-looking eyes, eye cream helps reduce dark circles, soothes sensitive skin and gets rid of fat under the eyes.
Moisturizing cream prevents dryness of the skin, helps fight acne, soothes sensitive skin and protects our skin from the harsh sunlight. There are many types of moisturizing creams in the market for dry and oily skin. Identify what your skin type is before purchasing a moisturizing cream.
Sunscreen is the final step for a full Korean Skincare Routine. Sunscreen protects our skin from harsh UV rays which might cause us to have signs of aging and blemishes
