Korean Skin Care
Created with a focus on long-term results that lead to healthy, happy and hydrated skin, Korean skin care products and the Korean skin care brands that make them have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years.
Achieving a flawless complexion doesn’t have to be difficult. At K Beauty UK we believe in harnessing the power of the 10 step Korean skincare routine in order to radically revitalise your complexion.
WHAT IS THE 10 STEP KOREAN SKIN CARE ROUTINE?
Founded on the Korean philosophy that a healthy complexion doesn’t happen overnight, the 10 step Korean skincare is a kind of lifestyle that focuses on preventing skin issues before they even have a chance to arise.
Though 10 steps may sound daunting at first, for both beginners and K-beauty enthusiasts alike, the 10 step Korean skin care routine is the ticket to perfect skin.
Remember, you don’t need to follow each of the 10 steps religiously– the key is to customise your routine to suit your own personal skin care needs. Struggling with acne? Then focus your efforts on using acne banishing formulas such as this SOME BY MI AHA, BHA, PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum 50ml. Battling with dry skin? Then check out products like COSRX Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Cream to rid yourself of that flaky skin.
With that in mind, take a look at the typical 10 step Korean skincare routine below.
WHAT ARE THE STEPS OF THE 10 STEP KOREAN SKIN CARE ROUTINE?
Ultimately, the steps that you follow will be unique to your own skin care needs, but to make things simple, we’ve outlined the typical 10 step routine below.
1. CLEANSE your skin using an oil-based cleanser like the KLAVUU Pure Pearlsation Divine Pearl Cleansing Oil to remove makeup and dirt
2. DEEP CLEANSE using a water-based cleanser like the COSRX Low-pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser to remove sweat, more dirt and oil
3. EXFOLIATE with a product like the SKINFOOD Black Sugar Honey Mask Wash-Off to remove dead skin cells
4. HYDRATE your skin with a toner like the COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner to remove any leftover dirt and balance out your skin pH levels
5. REVITALISE your skin with an essence like the COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence to hydrate, soothe and heal your skin
6. RESTORE your skin’s moisture with a serum like the SOME BY MI AHA, BHA, PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum 50ml or an ampoule like the COSRX Full Fit Propolis Light Ampoule 30ml to target specific skin issues, such as dry skin patches, dark spots and wrinkles
7. FURTHER HYDRATE the skin with a mask like the Dr. Jart+ Cryo Rubber with Soothing Allantoin Mask for vitamin and minerals (this step can be performed once or twice a week instead of every day)
8. REDUCE DARK LINES with an eye cream like the Benton Fermentation Eye Cream to soothe, hydrate and prevent wrinkles under the eyes
9. MOISTURISE with a product such as the LANEIGE Cream Skin Refiner to hydrate and seal in all products previously applied
