Korean Skincare Explained Simply

As you know not all of these steps belong just to the Korean skincare routine so it’s useful to know this anyway. Btw I’m just explaining the main steps.

Double cleansing- it’s the idea that washing your face with one type of cleanser doesn’t clean your skin good enough so you cleanse with an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser.

Exfoliating - about twice a week after cleansing to get rid of dead skin so your skincare products work better.

Toner - gets your skin balanced after cleansing and prepares your skin to absorb the rest of your skincare products.

Essence - a lightweight/watery treatment after toner that gives your skin another layer of hydration and can be specific to a skin issue you might have. Basically,a lightweight version of serum while also preparing your skin for serum.

Serum - applied after essence and similar to an essence but usually thicker and stronger. Serum’s are effective because they are concentrated treatments for any skin concern and you can choose one specific to your needs.

Ampoule - has a higher level of active ingredients,it’s basically a stronger serum. You can say that ampoules/serum’s are the same thing though except that you can mix ampoules with your essence, serum, or moisturizer to give your skin a big boost.

Moisturizer - last step in your skincare routine to lock it all in before sunscreen.
