The 10-step Korean skincare routine has increasingly become popular since the famous Korean makeup artist showed off her dewy, glass skin. Most of us, if not all, want to have clear skin, but this lengthy skincare routine will cost you a pretty penny.
That being said, if you are wise about what you save on and what you splurge on when purchasing products, it is possible to do even within a budget.
In this blog post, we dive deeper into the Korean skincare routine to determine which items are worth breaking the bank for and which you can save on.
Follow this K-beauty inspired 10-step routine for dewy, glass skin. There won’t be a single pore left untouched…
1. Oil cleanser
2. Cream/Foam cleanser
7. Sheet mask
8. Eye Cream
Although all steps in this routine are advised, most of us cannot afford to spend money on every single item. To determine what to splurge on, we have to understand what makes this routine so effective. The most critical steps in the Korean skincare regimen are cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, serums, and sunscreen. Out of these five steps, it is easiest to find effective but affordable cleansers, exfoliators and moisturizers. This, therefore, means that we should save on cleansers, moisturizers and exfoliators and invest in premium serums and sunscreen.
Most of us only started using a serum as part of our skincare routine recently. Serums contain unprecedented amounts of active ingredients that target specific skin problems such as dehydration, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, congested skin, etc. Based on what your main skincare concerns are, you should choose a serum that will treat and correct your skin appropriately.
There is no point in investing in expensive skincare products if you are not going to protect your skin from what causes it harm, either. Having a good sunscreen will ensure that you do not keep having to deal with the same problems over and over again. Sunscreen protects the skin from harmful UV rays that cause premature aging, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, skin discoloration, as well as dull and dry skin.
The moral of the story? Before trying out this 10-step K-beauty routine make sure you’ve got your skincare basics covered… and don’t try to save on the important stuff, like good quality sunscreen and serum.
