We are forever impressed with how Korean women take their skincare seriously. Their meticulous routine has granted most with porcelain-like, glowing skin we all envy. If you're curious and clueless about Korean skincare, here's how it is done in a nutshell:
Remove makeup and oil-based dirt with an oil-based cleanser. Follow it up with water-based cleansers (a.k.a. your regular facial foam) to remove debris accumulated throughout the day.

For smooth and brighter skin, Korean women use gommages and gentle scrubs twice a week to lift dead skin cells.

After washing your face, it's essential to restore the skin's natural pH with a toner. Plus, this also preps the skin to absorb the follwing skincare products Korean women layer.
