The 10 Step Korean Beauty Routine

In recent years, Korean beauty products have been successfully introduced on the shopping lists of Western consumers. Who does not want to have skin as perfect as they have? Their best kept secret is the beauty ritual for starting and ending the day. It seems like many steps, but the reward is undeniable: A hydrated, brightened and healthy skin.

The routine consists of 10 steps in which a different product is used, from lighter texture to denser texture, with the aim of purifying the skin and nourishing it intensely. This technique is also known as "layering" and consists of applying product over product creating layers. The routine will change depending on the type of skin: The steps are the same but the product will vary depending on whether your skin is dry, oily or mixed.

It should also be noted that it is not mandatory to go through all the steps every day. There are steps that you can skip such as the mask, the exfoliation or even the moisturizer. Listen to your own skin to identify what it requires.

1. Cleansing

The beauty routine begins with a good face cleaning to remove any makeup and other impurities. First you start with an oil-based cleanser to thoroughly remove dirt from your pores. If you have oily skin, do not worry, these types of products will not increase the production of sebum.

We recommend the Soda Tok Tok Clean Pore Deep Cleansing Oil, a cleansing oil that nourishes and hydrates improving the cellular regeneration and healing of small wounds. Apply the product on the face, massage and rinse with warm water.

2. Double Cleansing

Do you think you have finished cleaning your face? Not at all! The next step is to clean the face with a foam / soap with a soft, watery texture to remove, once in for all, impurities and any oily remaining from the previous cleanser. A very effective complementary cleaning.

Try our Daily Fresh Foam Cleansers with different extracts (olive, bamboo, green tea, citrus and rice) each one for a specific skin type.

3. Peeling

After cleaning the skin properly, the next step is to exfoliate it, for a deeper sweep of the pores, removing dead cells from the deeper layers of the skin. If you have very sensitive skin remember to do this only once a week. Anyway, Korean scrubs are usually smoother and more skin-friendly, so listen to your skin before you do this step!

Try our Pignose Clear Sugar Scrub with white sugar that allows a simple and effective extraction of blackheads and pimples. It also helps reduce sebum production.

4. Toner

After having cleansed thoroughly the face, we have eliminated "the bad" but also "the good". This is why the tonic is important, because it restores the skin's protective barrier and prepares it to receive the all the facial treatments that are missing. It provides the skin with its natural PH level.

We recommend the Aloe Soothing Essence 98% Toner with a liquid and light texture and a high concentration of organic aloe vera. Spread all over the face with the help of cotton pads soaked in the product.

5. Essence or Emulsion

It is a little-known product in the western world but it is also very useful if you want to have a perfect face. It is a light product of easy absorption full of active ingredients and nutrients that will help the skin to remain hydrated and soft.

Try the Aloe Soothing Essence 90% Emulsion with a fresh and smooth texture perfect to nourish and regenerate the skin thanks to its high content of natural aloe vera juice and other plant extracts. Fights aging and helps treat acne breakouts.

6. Serum

The serum is a cosmetic product with a high concentration of very effective active ingredients for a specific need of your skin: anti-blemish, anti-aging, acne regulation, brightening ... Its consistency is slightly denser than previous products and you noly need to apply a little quantity, with two or three drops is enough for the entire face. It can also be mixed with your moisturizer and you can apply both products at the same time.

We recommend One Solution Serum / Ampoule. 5 types of serum with a pleasant texture and great effectiveness to deeply hydrate, relax the skin, reaffirm it, illuminate it ... Find the One Solution that best suits you.

7. Masks

Probably the most famous and viral step on this list. In any shop you will find a wide variety of masks of various types with different active ingredients to better suit your preferences, budget and needs. It can be used twice a week and you will see instant results in less than 30 minutes. Have fun trying different masks!

TOur best seller masks are Pure Essence Masks. They are sheet masks in 12 different varieties: lemon, activated charcoal, strawberry, cucumber, green tea, avocado ... each designed for a special need: nourish, detoxify, brighten, soothe the skin ... Have you tried them already? Which one is your favorite?

8. Eye Contour

Throughout this routine, we have treated the face in general but now we specifically focus on that delicate area of the eye contour. You will only need to apply a small amount of product with your fingertips and gently tap without much pressure.

We recommend Aloe Soothing 80% hydrogel eye patches specially indicated for that area. The package contains 60 pairs of patches impregnated with aloe vera extract that calms and refreshes the area, relieving inflammation. Just apply the patch on the skin and remove it after 20-30 minutes.

9. Moisturizer

Another of the best known steps in the korean beauty routine and perhaps the one we do the most on a daily basis. Applying a moisturizer is essential to end the Korean routine. Its denser texture hydrates and nourishes filling the skin with benefits and leaving it silky. Choose the cream that best suits your needs according to the type of skin you have. Also keep in mind that you should choose a day cream for when you do the morning routine and a night cream before going to bed.

We highly recommend the Moisturizing Facial Cream Aloe Soothing 80% with a high concentration of organic aloe vera extract to restore freshness and hydration to the face. It has a calming and protective effect against external aggressions, with a very pleasant texture that is quickly absorbed.

10. Sun Protection / Night Mask

The last step changes depending on whether the routine is performed during the day or at night.

If it is in the morning, it is very important to add a sunscreen cream with a minimum protection of SPF50. Some moisturizers already contain a protection factor, or you can buy a sunscreen with some extra added: color, blemish prevention...

At night, we recommend using a night mask. You don't need to use it every day, a few times a week is enough. You have to apply a good layer before going to sleep and the next morning rinse well with warm water to remove residues. Try our Honey Sleeping Pack Night Masks of acerola, blueberry or canola honey, super moisturizing and with a delicious honey fragance.
