The Real Korean Skincare Routine: Special Care

First Special Care: Eye Cream
Koreans are famous for younger looking skin. Here is our secret!
In the last article, we talked about 'THE REAL KOREAN SKINCARE ROUTINE: MOISTURIZING'. Let’s move on to the next step. Now that your skin has been nourished and moisturized with essence and lotion. Here, you need special skin care. You’ve probably heard a lot about the Korean anti-aging skin care routine. Wrinkle care is essential to rejuvenate the skin.


So, Let's find out how to apply eye cream.
You can start using eye cream as early as your 20s. Wrinkles should be prevented because once they’re there, it’s hard to get rid of them. Massaging with eye cream around your eyes helps the blood circulate and prevents dark circles. Eye cream can be used for laugh-lines around your mouth and on your neck. Korean usually looks 10 years younger than actual age. Steadily applying eye cream from early 20s is our 'Fountain of Youth'.


The queen of skin care: CREAM.
Now it’s time to apply cream. Let's evenly apply cream that is highly concentrated with beneficial ingredients. Applying cream helps the skin absorb the ingredients and build skin barrier so that the ingredients and moisture stay locked in. Most Korean skincare products do not differentiate day cream and overnight cream. However, tone-up cream should be used only as the day cream. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen after the cream during the day to prevent UV rays from dissipating the beneficial ingredients of the skincare products. Read more detail about sunscreen in our article 'THE REAL KOREAN SKIN CARE ROUTINE: SUNSCREEN'.


Easy peasy! Order of Korean Skin Care Routine Steps
When you have several skincare products, it might be confusing in which order they should be applied. This was in fact the most raised question by our customers. To put it simply, just apply them in order of the fluid consistency. Apply the wateriest ones first and the thickest ones later.

watery >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> thick and rich
Skin Toner > Essence > Lotion > Eye Cream > Facial Cream > Facial Balm or Skin Oil

I love Korea, kittens, kindness, kimchi, and knowledge. I am the Earth and life wanderer who was born in Seoul, South Korea. I wanted to be the Wonder Woman, but now be a quite similar Wander Woman, anyway :) There is a birth myth about me. I was the wonder baby, surprised the whole maternity hospital by drinking up a full big bottle of milk within hours of being born. King Kool!
