Step 1: Double Cleanse

This step involves washing the face with two cleansers:
Oil Based Cleanser + Water Based Cleanser
#1 Oil Based Cleanser [Good skin comes to those who double cleanse ]

The first step of korean skincare routine is cleansing, double cleansing in fact! Why? This clears out all traces of impurities from your pores and skin surface, allowing other skincare products to penetrate better into your skin. While those with oily skin types may be questioning the use of oil-based cleansers, oil-based cleansers are actually more effective in removing impurities like sunscreen, sebum and other pollutants. Oil-based cleanser's texture melts upon contact with your skin without tugging or stripping away moisture.

WHY OIL CLEANSER IS GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN

It helps keep the skin's natural pH balance working, gently cleanses away impurities and excess oil while maintaining moisture levels without compromising the skin's natural barrier which ensures healthy, radiant skin. 

HOW TO USE

Much like a traditional cleanser, morning and night, massage gently into skin, add lukewarm water to emulsify and rinse with water.

Step 4: Moisturize

Step 4: Moisturize

Moisturizer [Get an instantly hydrated, healthy appearance]

The best skincare routines recommend using moisturizers day and night. It comes in many different forms, from face cream and lotion to gel formulas (it all depends on what works best for your skin type). Keep in mind that dehydrated skin makes skin more susceptible to common skin problems like acne, along with making fine lines and wrinkles appear more obvious. Moisturisers work by sealing in all the hydration, nutrients and vitamins that you have applied on your skin, after all, you don’t want these precious nutrients to just evaporate from your skin.

WHY MOISTURIZER IS GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN

Moisturizing everyday can reduce the chance of developing extreme dryness or oiliness.Both extremes are harmful for skin and can cause common skin conditions like acne & fine lines.


HOW TO USE

Use your finger tips to apply moisturizer to clean, still-damp skin morning and night, everyday. Be sure to apply moisturizer in the direction of the hair follicle and don't rub too hard to avoid skin irritation.
