Skincare Routine:- Ever had that feeling when something feels so perfect that you feel it should remain hidden? That is exactly how I feel about my skincare regimen.
Simple steps have had such an incredible impact on my skin! While I have always experimented with different skincare products and routines, the Korean skincare regime is something that has taken hold and become part of my regular regimen.
I discovered Korean beauty by chance almost two years ago now.
Articles published by Vogue about Korean women and their obsession with skincare piqued my interest; specifically one discussing a’secret skincare routine’ of 10 steps which promises amazing skin.
Curiosity led me to read more, and from there things quickly escalated into obsession. Since then, my skin has never looked better thanks to these simple 10 steps:
The first step in any skincare routine should always include cleansing. This step helps remove impurities such as dirt and makeup that has built up overnight as well as pollutants from the air that have made their way indoors during the night.
Neogen Real Fresh Foam Cleanser has always been my go-to cleanser and has never let me down! Over time I’ve tried numerous alternatives, but always come back to this one.
Foam bursts out when you pump it and lathers up with ease to completely wash away makeup and impurities from your face while leaving behind that fresh feeling of cleanliness.
Find it at Amazon, Sephora or Neogen’s website for roughly $24. When using cleansers, be sure to cleanse your face after every use for maximum effectiveness.
Although it seems obvious, I’ve often fallen victim to letting makeup build-up over a week’s worth of wear and tear. Proper cleansing of your face should be part of an everyday regimen rather than only happening once every few weeks!
Cleansing Now it is time to tone your face! Many believe toners only serve one function; however, in reality they offer much more.
Next, it’s time to tone your face. A lot of people think toners are just to clean your face, but they actually do so much more.
Toners help close pores, clear away any remaining impurities from cleansing products, and prepare your skin for further treatments in your skincare regime.
My go-to toner is the CosRX Clear Fit Blemish Toner. As someone with an oily T-zone and many acne scars on my cheeks, this toner works well to treat these concerns.
This affordable solution for shrinking pores, controlling oil production, and eliminating blemishes has just the right amount of acid to treat them effectively. All for under $13, with only one downside – not coming with its own spray bottle!
Amazon and CosRX both sell toners with various scents and acidities that may suit different skin types; choose accordingly when purchasing.
For example, if you have sensitive skin, opt for a gentle toner with low acidity levels and pat it onto your skin to allow the toner to do its magic.
3) Face Treatment
Its This next step will become a mainstay of your skincare regime: face treatments. These sessions can target various skin issues such as acne, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation while often offering antioxidants and vitamins to nourish and hydrate the skin further.
My go-to morning treatment is Benton Fermentation Eye Cream. I use it both as an eye cream to address wrinkles and dark circles as well as spot treatment to address redness and breakouts.
This product boasts skin-loving ingredients: fermented radish and broccoli extract to hydrate and soothe, plus Vitamin C and E to combat dark spots and wrinkles.
Benton Eye Cream is an extremely potency eye cream and your skin will appreciate it. Available on Amazon and the Benton website for $23, it makes an investment in healthy eyes that your skin will thank you for.
4) Face Mask
After your skin has been cleansed, toned, and treated, add an extra boost of hydration with a face mask. Masks should be left on for anywhere between five to thirty minutes in order to increase moisture, plump your skin up, and create a glowing complexion.
My go-to face mask is Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Masks in Blueberry variety. They come in an easy squeeze tube format and provide intense hydration – plus it costs only $1!
These masks are ideal for oily, acne-prone skin types like mine. Their soothing and relaxing qualities help you relax as they revitalize and moisturize the face, leaving it looking refreshed and revitalized afterwards. You can buy them on Amazon or via Innisfree’s website.
Now is the time for gentle exfoliation – one of the key steps in any skincare regime, but often misunderstood by many.
Exfoliating too frequently or harshly can damage your skin and further complicate skincare regimen. Aiming for weekly exfoliation sessions would be ideal.
Just a single pass over my skin with CosRX One-Step Pimple Clearing Pads will remove impurities, unclog pores, and leave my complexion soft and smooth.
These pads have been an absolute lifesaver and have saved my skin many times over. Perfect for oily and acne-prone skin types alike, these exfoliating and unclogging pads make a significant difference to overall complexion.
products come in two variants for both blemishes and blackheads. Both options are extremely affordable at just $13 each and will provide long-lasting relief at an unbeatably reasonable cost! You can purchase them both on Amazon as well as CosRX’s own website.
