Step 1: Double Cleansing 

First use a gentle oil cleanser to dissolve any makeup and sunscreen. Then, you follow up with a water-based foam cleanser to remove any remaining residue. For an oil cleanser we recommend the Anua Pore Control Cleansing Oil, and the Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser to follow up with!  

Step 2: Exfoliation 

Use a mild exfoliant with ingredients like AHA and BHA 2-3 times a week. We have been loving the Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 days miracle toner!

Step 3: Hydration is Key 

First, incorporate a hydrating toner to balance the skin's pH and prep it for subsequent products. Then apply a nourishing essence to boost hydration levels and promote a plump, dewy complexion. The Anua Heartleaf 77% Soothing Toner and the Cosrx Snail Mucin Essence are two amazing products for this step!

Step 4: Layering Serums

Apply brightening serums first such as Vitamin C or niacinamide for a radiant and even-toned complexion. Then layer hyaluronic acid on top to maintain a moisturized barrier. We love the Beauty of Josean propolis + niacinamide serum and the Beambo Hydro Plump Serum for that radiant, dewy glow!

Step 5: Moisturize

For the daytime, choose a gel-based moisturizer for a non-greasy, deeply moisturizing finish. For your nighttime routine consider a richer night cream for added nourishment. A great moisturizer is the Etude Soon Jung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream!

Step 6: Sunscreen, Always 

Apply sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily to shield your skin from sun damage. The Beauty of Joseon Relief Sun: SPF 50 is light and immediately blends into your skin!

By embracing the Korean skincare philosophy and incorporating these steps and products into your daily routine, you're well on your way to achieving the coveted glass skin. Remember, the key lies in consistent care, hydration, and addressing specific skin concerns. Cheers to a luminous and glowy complexion!
