CLEANSE

#1 MAKEUP REMOVER / OIL CLEANSER

An irreplaceable item for people who wore makeup and waterproof or tinted sunscreen. A lasting makeup can be stubborn that you cannot remove it completely without a double cleanse. Use this before cleanser to ensure no cosmetics residue is left over in pores, preventing clogged pores, pimples, and breakouts.

What it does?

Dissolves the stubborn waterproof formula and makeup

Skin Type

For Oily Skin: cleansing water

For Combination/ Dry Skin: cleansing oil

Morning / Night

(Assuming you remove your makeup at night)

Skip this step if

You are not wearing makeup and sunscreen (which you should wear) during the day.

Recommended Makeup Removers


CLEANSE

#2 WATER-BASED CLEANSER

Your bare face is not as clean as what you see through eyes, even if it passes through the makeup remover. Water-based impurities like sweat and dirt are still here to damage your skin. A water-based cleanser is thus a must-have item for everyone.

What it does?

Wash away the water-based impurities like sweat and dirt accumulated on your face

Skin Type

All

Morning / Night

Skip this step if

You do not love yourself, which you should not.

Recommended Water-Based Cleansers


CLEANSE

#3 EXFOLIATOR

Just like the sun hiding behind clouds. Your skin is not glowing because it gets covered by dead skin cells, which increases the risk of acne. Experience how smooth and radiant your face can be by exfoliating 1-2 times per week. You will also make most use of your expensive skincare products by allowing them to sink in more effectively.

What it does?

Removes dead skin cells

Skin Type

All but sensitive skin with cautions

Morning / Night

(Do not exfoliate twice in the same day and please exfoliate with intervals)

Skip this step if

You have done the exfoliation at least twice this week and you do not want irritation.

#4 TONER

Hydrating your skin and removing dead skin cells, a toner does more than simply water: it brings your skin back to the healthy acidic state, and helps your skin absorb the latter skincare better. With a toner, you can be more confident about the promising results of your 10 Step Korean Skincare Routine.

What it does?

Maintains low pH levels, hydrates your skin and removes dead skin cells

Skin Type

All

Prevents moisture evaporation and protects your skin against outside irritants.
