Korean skincare typically begins in adolescence, around the age of 12 or 13.
The regimen begins with a basic cleansing routine that involves removing makeup, dirt and oil from the face. This is usually followed by an exfoliating step to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and help unclog pores. After this, a toner or lotion is applied to maintain moisture levels in the skin and balance its pH.
The next step in Korean skincare is applying serums or essences that contain active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C or retinol which are designed to address specific concerns like wrinkles, age spots, acne scars etc. These products can be used on their own but they may also come packaged together with other products such as moisturizers for added protection against environmental aggressors like pollution.

Sheet masks often have additional brightening properties as well so you can wake up with brighter looking complexion!
