If you’re looking to have flawless skin, a Korean skincare routine is your answer. Korean skincare has become wildly popular and there is a good reason, it works. This 10 step routine may seem like a lot of work but trust us, it’s worth it for beautiful healthy skin. If you are putting all that work in you want to make sure the products you are using aren’t doing more harm than good. Your nighttime routine is about to be revamped with these 10 steps and products:

Step 1: Oil-based cleanser

The first step is washing with an oil based cleanser. This step is key for removing oil based makeup and buildup. Water doesn’t cut it for this step as water and oil just don’t mix. We recommend Klairs’ Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil:

Step 2: Double-cleansing

Once your makeup has been removed you must cleanse with a water-based cleanser. This will gently remove the remaining oil residue as well as water-based buildup from the day. We recommend Make Prem’s Relief Moisture Cleansing Foam:

Available at Make Prem

Step 3: Exfoliate

Twice a week use a gentle exfoliator. This will help to remove the dead skin cells that can make your skin look dull. These dead skin cells can actually prevent proper absorption. This means all your other steps will be less effective. We recommend Whamisa’s Seed Peeling Finger Mitt:

Available at Whamsia

Step 4: Toner

Next up is toner, this step helps to balance skin’s pH so you get beautiful glowy skin. We recommend Olivarrier’s Dual Moist Toning Lotion which is super gentle but effective:

Step 5: Essence

Essence is key for hydration, it is very much like a hydration specific serum. We also recommend Olivarrier’s Dual Moist Hyaluron Essence:

Step 6: Ampoule

Ampoule is basically a super charged serum, it has a higher concentration of active ingredients. It should primarily be used when your skin is having a crisis. We recommend Leegeehaam’s Vita Propolis Ampoule:

Step 7: Serum

Next up are serums, these should be used to target specific skin concerns. You can use them to brighten the skin, prevent premature aging, or any one of many skin issues. We recommend Klairs’ Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drops for anti-aging:

Available at Klairs Cosmetics

Step 8: Sheet mask

Sheet masks are a huge skincare trend, we’re sure you have seen them all over Instagram. Sheet masks are a great way to have a self-care moment but they are a serious treat for your skin. They deliver a concentrated dose of a variety of active ingredients depending on the type. We recommend Aromatica’s sheet masks:

Step 9: Eye cream

Next up is eye cream, this will protect and hydrate your eye area and help prevent premature aging. Be sure to apply this gently without pulling the skin. Try dabbing it on and continuing until it is absorbed. We recommend Benton’s Fermentation Eye Cream:

Available at Benton Cosmetics

Step 10: Moisturizer

Finally top it all off with a rich nighttime moisturizer to lock it all in. We promise you will wakeup with flawless skin! We recommend Olivarrier’s Dual Moist Comfort Cream:
