1. Oil Cleansers

The first step in the Korean skincare routine is to use an oil-based cleanser. Most of us use makeup removers or makeup wipes to clean the makeup or dirt off our faces. But we ignore the makeup remover we use. Koreans especially stress on using oil-based cleansers or makeup removers to clean your face. According to them, it is best to remove not just makeup but also the oil-based impurities like sebum. Even if you do not use makeup, it is still very good for removing dirt and pollutants from your face, something a normal face wash cannot do.

2. Water-based cleanser

The next step is to use a foaming face wash or cleanser. Korean beauty experts recommend double cleansing, as just onetime cleaning is not enough to clean your face properly. Using a water-based cleanser or foaming wash would be useful to remove further impurities from your face. A water-based cleanser also helps dissolve water-based impurities like sweat and dirt. This double cleansing technique also prevents you from having breakouts on your face.

3. Exfoliator

Exfoliation is necessary to have a glowing skin. If you cannot do it regularly because your skin is sensitive or you feel lazy, make sure you do it at least twice every week. Exfoliation helps you to get rid of dead cells, ultimately helping your skin make new cells. It also preps your skin to absorb all the nutrients of your skincare products for them to work effectively.


4. Toner

 Many people overlook toners thinking it is an unnecessary step. After your skin has been cleansed and exfoliated, your skin gets dehydrated and dry. To absorb your moisturizer properly, your skin needs to be a little damp. Toners keep skin hydrated and makes them a little damp for better absorption. 

5. Essence

In this case, you can use the type of essence that soothes your skin. The essence is very light, along with being hydrating in nature.

6. Skin treatment

This is the step that concentrates on skin treatment catering to an individual’s personal skin problems. It comprises serums, boosters, and ampoules and works towards skin correction. These products work on one’s specific problems including acne, redness, pigmentation, and fine lines. They contain concentrated and strong ingredients.

You can also rub the extra solution on your other body parts, like legs and hands, to get the maximum use out of it.
