Known for itsmulti-step skincare routines, K-Beauty can seem a little overwhelming for newcomers.
What if we told you that you could get most of the benefits of K-Beauty in just 3 simple steps?
Whether you’re starting out with K-Beauty or are a seasoned skincare expert looking to save time, it’s useful to remember what you’re looking to get out of a K-Beauty routine.
The main philosophy behind K-Beauty is to deeply hydrate skin. This helps to develop radiant, glowing skin from the inside out. Everyone’s skin type and condition is different, so the number of steps you need to get hydrated will depend on your individual needs.
As long as you’re getting the proper amount of hydration for your skin, you’re doing K-Beauty right!
Let’s have a look at a 3-step minimalist routine that’s quick on time but big on results.
Cleansing your face is one of the most important steps in your routine. There’s little point applying layers of skincare to dirty skin – without a clean base, it’s going to be difficult to get the full benefits of your skincare products.
Although we are huge fans ofdouble cleansing, using only a water soluble cleanser will do a pretty good job (especially if you’re wearing minimal sunscreen or makeup).
For a dreamy cleanse that will melt away the day's makeup, SPF, oil and more try Subi Bare Skin Balm. Follow up with a water-based cleanser that punches above its weight. We’re long-term fans of Tosowoong’sEnzyme Powder Wash. With an ideal pH level of 5.5, this powder wash can be used both as a light exfoliant and a foam that cleanses without irritation.
In order to properly cleanse your face, facial cleansers are designed to be slightly more alkaline than your skin. This can throw off your skin’s optimal pH balance (between 4.5-6.5). Restoring your skin’s ideal pH balance is what toners are for.
The benefits of maintaining a proper pH balance include better absorption of skincare products, and a more effective defence against surface bacteria.
Reset your skin’s optimal pH balance with toners like our bestsellingd’Alba Peptide No-Sebum Balancing Toner. Combining luxurious white truffle with pearl and niacinamide, it keeps your sebum and moisture levels in check.
No K-Beauty routine is complete without a moisturiser to lock in hydration and nutrients. Our top rated moisturiser, STYLE STORY lovers can’t get enough of Jelly Ko’s decadentBubble Tea Steam Cream. It combines the benefits of a serum, oil and moisturiser into a single product.
