Hello, lovelies! CNY celebrations are in full swing, and we’re sure you want to look absolutely gorgeous for it, all shine and no grime. Well, rejoice, because we have a guide made just for K-beauty glamour!
Yes, it’s the famous Korean 10-step skincare routine! Carefully applied layers that let the skin breathe without clogging pores, responsible for Koreans’ radiant, smooth “glass skin.” Follow it and your skin will shine its best and brightest in time for your reunion dinners!
But how do all those layers work and what’s the order to put them on? Read on and you’ll discover how beauty is about using the right products in the right order:
STEP 1: OIL CLEANSER
Start with a double cleanse. The first part removes oily makeup and sunscreen.
STEP 2: FOAM CLEANSER
The next step of the double cleanse achieves a deeper clean after removing your makeup. You can use our Deep Cleansing Milk to do both steps at once!
STEP 3: EXFOLIATOR
Use an exfoliator like our Milky Scrub on your dead skin to bring out your brighter, younger skin. Be careful not to overdo it, especially if you have sensitive skin!
STEP 4: TONER
After all that cleansing, refresh and hydrate yourself with our Skin Toner. This helps your skin absorb the other products more easily.
STEP 5: MASK
Something like our Soothing & Whitening Creamy Mask is soaked in serum for lush skin, and it’s the highlight for our Korean sisters. Use it for about 15 minutes at a time before long days or events.
STEP 6: SERUM
These are packed with concentrated goodness to help you say goodbye to fine lines, acne or hyper-pigmentation. Use the ones you need like NU+ Serum and tap it gently into your skin for better absorption.
STEP 7: EYE CREAM
The skin around your eyes is delicate, so be gentle with those fine lines! Spread Eye Contour Gel with your ring finger to avoid pulling your skin.
STEP 8: TREATMENT CREAM
Finally, continue treating your problem spots to soak in the goodness of products like our Refining Cream.
STEP 9: MOISTURISER
The last layer for the night! Gently apply a moisturiser like our Oxygen H2O cream. It will seal in the other layers so that they can work their magic on your skin.
STEP 10: SUNSCREEN
Start the morning with your most important protection: sunscreen. Use one like our UV Cream SPF25 to keep out UV rays and pollution.
And there you have it! An easy do-it-yourself for K-beauty glass skin, and the perfect reason to pamper yourself by indulging in a beauty routine every night.
It seems like a lot to take in, but the 10-step routine is actually incredibly versatile. You can change the steps depending on your skin type or the weather, using some products more or less. Just use the beauty regimen that’s right for you, and you’ll look stunning in time for Chinese New Year!
