Ever wonder how Korean celebrities are able to maintain their seemingly flawless skin? It seems impossible, especially this time of the year under the blazing hot sun! Of course, we can only assume that their pictures were most likely airbrushed and photo shopped. While it is likely that there are at least some touch-ups involved, it turns out Koreans have adopted a 10-step skincare routine that has proven to make their skin smooth and silky. Though it may seem like a hassle, these efforts may be very well necessary in order to achieve perfect, glowing skin like Korean celebrities!
Here are the steps:
1. Wipe It All Off
First, remove your makeup (duh), as leaving makeup on could eventually lead to acne in the long run.
Rinse off all traces of makeup with Innisfree Real Cleansing Tissue.
2. Deep Cleansing
Next, using the Face Shop Rice Water Cleansing Oil, gently use circular motions with your fingers to massage your face.
Scrub your face with this Skin Food Black Sugar, but only twice a month. Apply on t-zone and where blackheads appear most.

Ampoules are necessary to help brighten skin, as well as address dulling skin and uneven tones. Use Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Activator Ampoule
7. Cover It Up
