30 Korean Skincare Products You Need To Try Immediately

Conquer the 10-step routine once and for all!

Koreans mean business when it comes to skin care, and their 10-step skin care routine is no exception. While 10 steps may sound excessive, good skin habits are taught from a very early age. At its core, the routine consists of cleansing, exfoliating, treating, intensely moisturizing, and slathering on lots of SPF. Though a lot of products are gentle enough for all skin types, some products are packed with ingredients that are more beneficial for certain skin types.

So to make things easier, the first product in each row below is targeted towards dry skin, the second for sensitive skin and the third for oily skin. GO GO GO!

Step 1: Remove makeup by gently rubbing it an oil cleanser (and give yourself a nice facial massage while you're at it!).

Step 2: Follow up with a water-based cleanser for an extra-clean-but-never-squeaky feeling.

Step 3: Use an exfoliator one to two times a week to slough off silly dead skin cells.

Step 4: Use a toner with your clean hands or a cotton pad to rebalance your skin's pH and prep it for subsequent doses of treatment and hydration.

Step 5: Pat in one or multiple layers of essence to lock in some serious hydration.

Step 6: Apply a serum to zone in on pressing/specific skin concerns.

Step 7: Put on a sheet mask two to three times a week (depending on how dry your skin feels — I mean, feel free to go every single day if you wanna!).

Step 8: Apply a bit of eye cream around your peepers because it's the most sensitive/fragile area of skin — crow's feet, who?

Step 9: Apply a moisturizer for the final, most dense layer of hydration to last you throughout the entire night (and even into the morning!).

Step 10: Smear lots of SPF across your face & neck to prevent discoloration, wrinkles, and sun spots.

Or...if you'd rather buy a whole 10-step set all at once and knock every step out of the park...

These ones from Soko Glam are great and come in different versions for normal skin, dry skin, combination skin, and oily skin. 👏
