Ever wonder why It’s rare to come across a Korean woman without flawless, glowing skin? It’s because Korean’s take extra care of their skin through the use of BB creams, sheet masks, essences and toners. There is a science behind the routine, which consists of a 10 step process.
Steps 1 and 2:
Winter is coming…which means dry, flakey, itchy skin. Tag a friend with dry skin who needs one of these water based cleansers that give the skin a little more TLC. ⠀ —⠀ KLAIRS Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser⠀ ⠀ This unique cleanser uses an amino acid formula instead of a sodium lauryl sulfate one, which makes sure that the foam won't dry out skin and leave it feeling tight. It's great for sensitive skin too, thanks to hyaluronic acid and aloe leaf extract that nourish and calm skin. If you have acne-prone skin, you'll love the tea tree leaf oil that fights breakouts and helps you achieve clearer skin. A⠀ —⠀ MISSHA Near Skin pH Balancing Cleansing Foam⠀ ⠀ It’s formulated with saponin complex and mineral water from the Seorak mountains in Korea to create a subacid base that ensures skin stays at the optimal pH level of 5. It’s full of gentle amino acids that thoroughly cleanse skin while leaving it moisturized and supple. You will no longer feel any tightness after cleansing!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #skincare #beauty #cosmetics #sokoglam #10stepkoreanskincare #moisturizer #onlygoodskindaysahead #asianbeauty #doublecleanse #cleanser #watercleanser #missha #klairs #dryskin
Korean’s use a “double cleanse” method, where they wash their face twice with a cleanser. The purpose of this is to remove dirt and grime that sit on top of the skin, followed by a second cleanser to get a deeper clean. An oil cleanser is preferred to start with followed by a water-based cleanser.
How do you achieve hydrated, clear skin? Start with a clean, exfoliated base. This gauze peeling pad uses a unique 3 layer pad technology, as lactic acid penetrates deep into your pores to clean out pore-clogging debris. Packed with antioxidants, it'll reduce redness and signs of anti-aging as well! Now your skin's fall weather-ready 🙂
Exfoliating is an important element in the K-beauty regimen, which assists in the removal of dead skin and allows the following products to be absorbed more easily. However, scrubbing your face every night isn’t recommended. Charlotte Cho, co-founder of Soko Glam, an online marketplace that specializes in Korean beauty products says, “Its better to focus your efforts on areas that really need it, like visible pores on your cheeks,on blackheads, or your nose.”

It contains a high percentage of sodium hyaluronate, which holds 1000 times more moisture than water. This formula of hyaluronate acid contains much smaller molecules, allowing for deep hydration that sinks into the skin. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #bokb #bokb17 #bestofkbeauty #bestofkbeauty2017 #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #skincare #beauty #cosmetics #sokoglam #10stepkoreanskincare #onlygoodskindaysahead #asianbeauty #hanskin
An essence follows, which is considered as the holy grail of the k-beauty routine. It adds moisture and repairs the skin after its been stripped from essential nutrients, creating a firm and brighter complexion.
Ampoule, which is similar to a watered-down serum, is then used to address any dullness or loss of collagen. A little goes a long way.

easy on the 👀 ⠀ Lust-worthy eye creams that help de-puff and tighten⠀ ⠀ Eye Creams are essential in preventing fine lines and wrinkles around the eye where skin is the thinnest. With ingredients like Ginseng, you can also help reduce puffiness and darkness around the eye. ⠀ –⠀ ⠀ Featured Products⠀ –⠀ @missha.official Misa Geum Sul Vitalizing Eye Cream ⠀ @erborian_usa Gingseng Infusion Total Eye ⠀ @hanskin_official Bio Orgin the Eye Cream ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #eyecream #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #sokoglam #ginseng #snailmucin #koreanmakeup #makeup #skincare #koreanskincare #onlygoodskindaysahead⠀ ⠀
Hydrating eye cream is meant to prevent fine lines, puffiness and dark circles that can form as we age. The trick is to tap the under eye area with the cream, besides tugging or rubbing. “This ensures that the thin, delicate area stays super-moisturized so it wont dry out and create even more fine lines,” says Cho.
