How To Build Your Own Korean Skin Care Routine



It is important to start on a clean canvas when it comes to a full skin care routine. The starting point of the Korean skin care routine is to cleanse your face thoroughly. If you tend to use makeup a lot, go for an oil cleanser. It can easily break up the makeup and with a splash of warm water, all the impurities will go away.

We can also break down this step into 3 further steps.

  • Oil Base Cleanser
  • Water Base Cleanser
  • Exfoliator

Depend on your skin type and how much time you have you can explore the infinite possibilities of Korean skin care.


Toners are used to keep your skin hydrated and balance the pH levels. It is important to keep your skin well hydrated allowing it to easily absorb whatever you provide. A great tip is to use a nice cotton pad to apply your toner on your skin by gently using it on your face.




Once you have prepped your skin with a toner, this should allow the essence to be easily absorbed by your skin. An essence is mainly used for repairing your skin and improve skin cell regeneration. You will almost instantly see the effects of the essence once your skin has absorbed it.

Gently pat the essence onto your skin to allow for absorption.


Serums are used for specific skin concerns. They are like a concentrated version of essence that attacks specific skin care concerns. Choose what you are most concerned about, such as dull skin, pores, wrinkles or acne. There is always a serum to attack those concerns.




You may have dived into Korean skin care beauty because of their cute and wide range of sheet masks. They are the gem of Korean beauty. All you have to do is put it on your face and relax for the next 15 minutes to let it do its thing. Like what most people say, its the whole experience of Korean beauty that improves your skin condition.

Make sure you are well relaxed and use a sheet mask at least twice a week.


As mentioned above, hydration is key to a perfect skin care routine. It is important to find the moisturiser that is suitable for your own skin type. Keep your skin hydrated with creams, gels or lotions. With your skin locked full of moisture, it will keep those wrinkles away.




One final step most always forget is to apply sunscreen when you are exposed under the sun. Apply a re-apply when necessary to keep those deadly rays from attacking your skin cells. It is important to use it every time to keep the UV rays from destroying all the hard work you have made in your skin care routine.
