Skincare Korea: What is the secret behind their perfect skin?

Kira Hermansen(Denmark)

 If you go to Korea, you won’t be missing out on skincare products. Most places around Seoul you’ll find all kinds of stores filled with only skincare. This has to do with Korea being a big market in the beauty department.

Over the last few years Korean skincare has become huge internationally, because of the affordable pricing but also because the ingrediencies used in their products are mostly natural. If you’re into skincare you’ve probably heard about the famous 10-step Korean skincare routine, it’s said to be the ultimate skincare routine. The 10-step routine goes a little like this: a balm or oil cleanser (1), then a foaming cleanser (2), an exfoliant (3), a toner (4), an essence (5), an ampoule or serum (6), a sheet mask (7), an eye cream (8), a moisturizer (9), and at the end you should either use a thicker night cream, sleeping mask or an SPF (10). In the routine you should put thin to thickest consistency products on after cleansers.
