A world where tradition meets technology has the whole world obsessing and us too, over the 10 step beauty regimen. The mind blowing results is the reason why Korean Skincare has taken the world by storm. Help your skin look healthy with the following steps.
STEP 1: We’re all used to washing our face with a cleanser first thing in the morning. Wrong! Ditch the cleanser and wash your face with water which will help remove the impurities that might have settled during the night and give you hydration at the same time.
STEP 2: Keep a check on your pH levels and balance it out with a toner. Boddesses, while doing this step you have also prepared your skin to absorb what’s coming next.
STEP 3: It’s all about the cells, ladies! So give your skin what the cells love- Essence. An essence is a blend between a toner and a serum which helps ensure hydration.
STEP 4: Now is the time for Ampoule which is similar to a Serum but has a higher number of active ingredients and are perfect to target skin care concerns as a booster.
STEP 5: Half way through the regimen, we are onto the Serum which has finite number of active ingredients and combats specific concerns such as wrinkles, dark spots and dehydration.
STEP 6: Next, focus on the eyes! Do remember that this is the most sensitive area of your face. Apply an eye cream across the brow and the area between the lid and the brow. Then glide the cream from the inner to the outer corner of the eye to ensure maximum hydration which is vital for this area since there are no glands present for natural oils.
STEP 7: Top this all off with a light layer of moisturiser for all day hydration. Pick your moisturiser wisely according to your skin type.
STEP 8: Never forget SPF! Apply that sunscreen all through the year and not just summer to protect your skin from the UV rays and prevent the onset of dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles.
While the day time routine looks like this, the night time routine isn’t very much different. Start off with an Oil-based Cleanser followed by a Water-based Cleanser. Add Exfoliation to your routine at least twice a week to remove the dead cells and ensure the pored are not clogged. Then use a Toner to balance the pH levels. Give your skin the hydration it needs with the next three steps which include Essence, Ampoule and then Serum.
