- MAKE-UP REMOVER
Remove your make up using a good quality make up remover. There are many herbal and organic options available in the market to suit your skin type as well as your budget.
Cleansing is a very important step when it comes to skin care and also which you cannot afford to skip. Take your cleanser in a pea sized amount, massage it in circular motions with your finger and wash it off. It is a belief that massage increases your blood circulation which in turn helps you getting that much required glow on your face.
Exfoliation is a important step in skin care. Exfoliate your skin twice a month and concentrate areas on your face like T zone which is prone to blackheads. Exfoliation removes dead cells and gives that fresh and healthy skin.
Toner is an important product which you cannot afford to miss when it comes to taking care of your skin. toners are very helpful as it balances the ph level. Also toner works great for people who are prone to acne and people with oily skin. Just dip a cotton pad into toner and dab it on your face and swipe around.
The essence was a skincare product which got its identity into skincare routine in Korea. Essence is a kind of serum which contains high doses of active ingredients which is meant to get soaked deep into your skin after the step of cleansing. Apply it after you complete toning your skin.
Serums are the product which are applied after cleansing your skin. serums are ideal for dull skin, and also helps people with wrinkles and even reduce acne. Take a few drops of serum on your palm and dab it gently on your face.
7. SHEET MASK
Korean skincare routine is incomplete sans sheet masks. Sheet masks provides the nourishment to your skin and makes it healthy, glowing and supple. Various kind of sheet masks are available in the market to choose from. Sheet masks can be used once or twice a week and sometimes even daily if you like.

Well hydration is the key to glowing skin. Use a moisturizer that suits your skin. apply it after cleansing and toning of your skin. Choose a moisturizer according to your skin type which works well for your skin.
