“The basic philosophy of Korean Skincare states that its better to prevent skin problems than trying to fix’em. This routine requires applying several layers of products so to clean, hydrated and protect the skin and, if repeated every day, it allows to get a perfect skin.” 


#1 CLEANSERS


Cleansing  is the first and really important step, in fact Korean Beauty Routine requires Double Cleansing to prepare your skin for the following skincare treatments.

Korean Beauty Products are intended for delicate skins, so have no fear of layering as these products are totally not aggressive. Start by removing your makeup with oil or balm cleanser. Massage your face, so to increase circulation to achieve a brighter and firmer skin. For the first round of cleaning we recommend Neogen Real Cleansing Stick Green Tea.

After make up have been removed, it’s time for a water-based cleanser. A good starting point are Thank You Farmer Back To Iceland Cleansing Water  or Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser.


#2 TONERS


While restoring your skin’s pH balance, toner helps to remove pollutants along with any residue from your cleansers.
Toner soothes and preps your skin to absorb the layer to come: the essence.

There are plenty of options to choose from: you can use simple toners like Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner. It’s a no-strings-attached product that does exactly what you expect: it preps your skin and remove excess dirt and sebum as it restores your skin’s Ph balance.

On the other hand, you can go for a multitasking toner. For example, like Son & Park Beauty Water lightly exfoliates and cleanse your skin while toning it up.


#3 ESSENCES


Although essence is the most important step for every Korean woman, it is still quite a mystery in Western culture. The easiest way to define essence is first to figure out what it is not. This is not toner, although they have a similar slip to them. It is also not meant for cleaning.

With higher doses of active ingredients, essence is meant to deliver those deep into the skin after you’ve gone through the process of double cleansing. It’s got your hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and other natural extracts for an immediately hydrated and comforted feel. Essence balances pH once you’ve stripped the skin of oils and basically it’s what you add to make you feel like you again.

Affecting your skin on a cellular level, essence helps you get smoother and brighter skin. One of our favorite is Blithe Vital Treatment Essence, infuses extracts from roots, beans and seeds into your skin, to make it even more transparent and vital.

#4 SERUMS & AMPOULES


Feature heavy-hitting ingredients that can really target and treat skin issues like dark spots, wrinkles and dullness, Serums is a super-concentrated version of an essence.

They can appear in various forms: rich in vitamins, zinc, collagen, beta-carotene and minerals, Blithe Pressed Serum Crystal Ice Plant soothes irritations caused by UV rays and excessive stimulation of the epidermis. smoothes skin irritation by relieving stress. Aligning the hydro-lipid balance of the skin, it controls the excessive secretion of sebum and leaves a pleasant feeling of freshness to your skin.

A blend of organic ingredients, liquid serum like Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum, replenishes your skin’s moisture levels without compromising the delicate nature of your skin. Rich Moist Soothing Serum’s formula has been recently upgraded by Klairs so its absorb faster. 


#5 MOISTURIZERS


Moisturizers contains a complex mixtures of agents that help hold water in the skin after application, specially designed to make the epidermis (the external layers of the skin) softer and more pliable. Moisturizers increase the skin’s hydration by reducing evaporation. Moisturizers come as a cream or its lighter counterpart, as an emulsion.

Among our favorites sits LeeGeehaam Vita Propolis Cream: a honey-like yellowish cream formulated with 50% propolis extract that provides deep nourishing for revitalizing dull and tired skin. You can use it for both day and night time.

Getting used to the layering state might require a bit, especially for newbies.  If this is the case an alterative option could be  Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream, a moisturizer for night time only. Specifically designed for oily, acne-prone and sensitive skin types, this  is a gentle cream that helps to calm extremely irritated and stressed skin.


#6 EXFOLIATORS


Exfoliation is the process of removing the dead skin cells from the body, so your newer, fresher skin cells are left at the top. Your skin feels smoother and looks much more radiant that it did just before. Moreover exfoliation process can clear the pores of all the dirt and oils much easier, so you’re left with cleaner skin ready for your day or night ahead.

Exfoliation acts indeed as a skin rejuvenator. For example, during the winter, your skin may not get as much sun as it needs, and might look dull. By following a beauty routine that you follow throughout the year, you will have sun-ready skin all the time.

To get the perfect exfoliation, we suggest Neogen gauzing pad. It will help bring your skin to such a just amazing glow. As most of K-beauty products, this exfoliator is totally not  aggressive. You can use it up to 3 times per week and it is perfect even for the most sensitive skins.

Should you need something a little bit stronger, why not trying Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish ? This by-all-means miracle product is going to bring back your baby-skin as it exfoliates your dead skin cells, moisturizes dry skin, controls black heads and excessive sebum.
