If you are a true skincare enthusiast, you’d probably have heard about the Korean skincare routine. Korean skincare is basically paying attention to preventing and protecting the skin than using multiple products that may damage your skin. Below down we’ve prepared an ultimate guide for you to follow the Korean skincare routine to get glowing skin!
The very first step of this 10-step K-beauty skin care routine is using an oil-based cleanser to remove your SPF, makeup, dirt and other oil-based impurities that are on your skin. It’s important to remove your makeup at the end of the day and make sure that nothing is left behind.
MyGlamm GLOW Iridescent Brightening Foam Cleanser
Enriched with Rosehip oil, this cleanser removes dirt, and makeup, giving your skin an iridescent glow. It’s the best for daily use and is suitable for all skin types!
The Korean skin care routine includes a double cleanse so once you’re done with the oil-based cleanser, move on over to a water-based cleanser as this helps remove any impurities that might cause pimples. In the end, your skin ends up feeling clean and grime-free.
MyGlamm YOUTHFULL Hydrating Foam Cleanser With Water Bank Technology
Marine Hydrating & pH-Balancing Foaming Cleanser
The Youthfull hydrating foam cleanser uses an aqua elastic network system for providing extra hydration to the skin. It gently removes the makeup and dirt from your face.
Exfoliating your skin helps clean pores and remove dead skin cells giving you visibly brighter and smoother skin. But unlike cleansing, this K-beauty skin care step doesn’t have to be done on a daily basis. Once or twice a week is good enough. If you have sensitive skin, it’s beneficial to exfoliate only once a week.
MyGlamm WIPEOUT Germ Killing Face Scrub- Lavender & Neem
Lavender & Neem Infused Purifying Face scrub
The MyGlamm’s WIPEOUT germ-killing face scrub is infused with neem and lavender. This face scrub removes dead skin and impurities for smooth skin, gives your skin a calming effect, and protects skin from pollution and dirt.
The next step in the Korean skin care routine is using a toner. Toners are the forgotten hero. Skin toner helps balance the skin’s pH levels and prepares it for the next steps. So toning is a must! You could either dab it on with a cotton ball or apply it with your fingertips.
MyGlamm GLOW Iridescent Brightening Toner
Infused with rosehip oil, this amazing brightening toner is enriched with hyaluronic acid and iridescent pearl powder to give your skin a natural glow. Additionally, this toner prevents drying and maintains the skin’s elasticity.
Another forgotten product in the skin care routine is face essence but for Korean women, this is a must. Essence acts like both a toner and serum. It helps hydrate the skin and also aids in cell repair while reducing the signs of aging.
MyGlamm Glow Iridescent Brightening Essence
The MyGlamm’s Glow Iridescent brightening essence reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and firms the skin. It gives a 3D luminous effect and strengthens your skin.
After applying the essence, your skin is now ready to absorb the boosters and serums and work its magic. The ingredients in these skin care products help boost the skin’s elasticity, eliminate acne and leave you with smoother, glowing skin.
MyGlamm 1% Multi-Peptide Collagen Boosting Serum
Clinically Tested, Highly Concentrated Face Serum with Multi-Peptide & Natural Extracts
Enriched with sweet almond and marula, this MyGlamm serum gives visibly firm and plump skin, fights early signs of ageing, and provides a smooth canvas for makeup.
Sheet masks became popular just around the time the 10-step Korean skin care routine became the 'IT' thing around the world. This is another step that can be done once or twice a week. Sheet masks help brighten, control acne and hydrate your skin. There are also different types of sheet masks available in the market that cater to your skin type.
MyGlamm K.Play flavoured brightening sheet mask
K.Play Mandarin Brightening Sheet Mask + K.Play Flavoured Lipstick Melon Squeeze
Enriched with mandarin, white truffle, hydracure complex, this sheet mask improves your skin’s elasticity, moisturises, and strengthens the skin.
Admit it, eye cream isn’t on top of your skin care steps. Well, it’s time to change this. The skin around your eyes is the most sensitive and delicate part. Regular use of eye cream helps remove puffiness, dark circles and also reduces the sign of wrinkles.
Avocado & Aloe eye cream
Soothing, Nourishing Antioxidant-rich Eye Cream
The MyGlamm’s SUPERFOODS Avocado & aloe eye cream reduces under-eye circles, and signs of ageing, nourishes the skin and maintains moisture levels.
MyGlamm SUPERFOODS Blueberry & Strawberry Face Cream
Brightening & hydrating face cream with natural extracts from natural superfoods
The MyGlamm SUPERFOODS blueberry and strawberry face cream gives intense hydration to the skin, controls excess sebum production, and brightens the skin.
Finally, the 10 and last step to this K-beauty skin care routine is layering on the SPF. Sunscreen isn’t only for the summer. Wearing sunscreen every day before stepping out is the easiest way to prevent premature aging and protects your skin from UV rays.
If you're doing this Korean skin care routine at night, you can go ahead and use night cream.
MyGlamm SUPERFOODS Kiwi & Coconut Sunscreen
Broad-Spectrum, Lightweight & Non-greasy Sunscreen With SPF 30 PA+++
MyGlamm SUPERFOODS Kiwi & Coconut sunscreen gives protection against UVA and UVB protection with a non-greasy feel on the skin. Good part? It also prevents premature skin ageing.
Yes, the Korean Beauty Regimen works wonders on the skin. A lot of people have tried it and witnessed positive results. It involves using many hydrating products helping in repairing the skin. This amazing routine prevents fine lines and wrinkles and also prevents the skin from any kind of damage.
Yes, it does work for oily or acne-prone skin but only if you follow a few precautions such as:
Never use any oil-based cleanser for more than 1 minute.
Use a gentle cleanser to rinse off the excess dust and dirt.
Always use a mineral-based sunscreen to avoid clogged pores.
Try using an alcohol-free toner.
Remember to exfoliate your skin 2-3 times per week.
