When it comes to lengthy and in-depth skincare routines, we all know that Asia leads the way. Utilising advanced skincare technology and the very latest in skin knowledge, the Korean skincare routine in particular is renowned all over the world.
When it comes to skincare for Korea, more really is more. Forget that face wipe and all-round moisturiser, the Koreans know that the 10 step routine is the only one you need in order to achieve perfect skin health.
In fact, skincare is so ingrained into the lifestyles of Koreans, they start taking care of their complexions very early on in their lives. The result? There’s a reason why everyone in the West is going crazy for K-Beauty. Even the classic Lancôme is taking inspiration.
We are all becoming a little more than obsessed with the Korean skincare routine. As Beauty Editors, looking after our skin is incredibly important and something we take super seriously, but did we ever think it would lead to a 10 step routine? The answer would probably be no, but the results are simply too good to ignore.
We are looking for that gorgeous glow, smooth texture and all round perfection, and the Korean skincare routine will certainly get us there.
The 10-Step Korean Skincare Routine
Step 1: Eye Makeup Remover
You might think that you can use your regular cleanser to remove eye makeup, but think again. Stubborn mascara and waterproof formulations can be hard to remove so require special formulations to remove them properly.
You can end up tugging at your lashes when you use your regular cleanser as it takes more work to remove the mascara, so can cause damage. An eye makeup remover is oil-based, so sweeps away even the toughest of formulations. Plus, it leaves your cleanser to remove the makeup it was designed to do.
The Skin79 Eye Remover uses Moringa Oil and Aloe Vera to effectively wipe away eye makeup, and soothe the skin. The skin around your eyes is one of the thinnest on your body (hence why you can see dark circles easily!), so keeping it calm and protected will make you look a lot more wide awake.
