10 Korean Skincare steps that Rejuvenate Your Skin (Korean Beauty routine) - Smeh Beautytips

Korean Skincare products and Korean skincare steps are getting popular these days because of its positive side effects on the skin. It's not compulsory that you do all 10 steps every day, it depends on your skin type and condition. It's actually using different skin care products on the skin: making it healthy and glowy. If you have a busy routine then you can skip steps and do that suits your routine. People have seen a good result after following Korean beauty routine.

Korean Skincare Step #1;
Do Oil Cleansing:

Oil cleansing helps to remove any dirt or debris from the skin. It removes makeup and impurities from your face. You can use a Korean oil cleanser or the one that suits you. Coconut oil is in one of the best oil cleansers. You can also check other oil cleansers on post 10 Best Cleansing Oil.

Korean Skincare Step #2;
Do Foam Cleansing:

Foam cleanser applies on a wet face. It's hard to remove all dirt in just one cleansing step so double cleansing (oil + foam) helps to remove any leftover makeup or dirt from your face. You will feel a perfect cleansed skin.
NEOGEN Dermalogy Real Fresh cleansing Foam,160g /5.6 oz (Green Tea) is a Korean Skincare product. It doesn't only gently cleanse your skin but also hydrates it. It contains green tea which has powerful antioxidants that help in repairing skin cells.

Korean Skincare Step #3;
Use Exfoliator:

Exfoliator removes dead skin cells from your skin. It clears thin dull skin layer and leaves a bright fresh skin. If you've to use exfoliator often (3 times a week) then use apricot exfoliators, for a weekly use charcoal based exfoliators are best. The charcoal based exfoliators are intense so using it once a week is enough. This step is also not recommended to use on a daily basis.

Korean Skincare Step #4;
Applying Toner:

Toner uses to balance skin PH. It also hydrates the skin. After cleansing and exfoliating your skin needs hydration so toner provides your skin necessary hydration. It helps to prep skin for further process and make them more effective. Toner is more suitable to oily or acne prone skin. Its main purpose is to clean skin and shrink the skin's pores.

Korean Skincare Step #5;

The essence is the heart of the Korean beauty routine. It's somehow similar to serum or booster but it's more watery then them so it's more similar to a toner but its purpose isn't cleansing. It helps in hydrating and balancing your skin PH. You don't have to dab a cotton pad in Korean essence and clean your face but you need to press it on your face with your hands, moving inside out. If you've got an overproduction of sebum or acne on your face then this product isn't suitable for your skin.

Korean Skincare Step #6;
Use Serum or Boosters:

This step is quite useful when you've spots or pigmentation on your skin. But if you have clear skin then you don't need to follow this step and you can skip it. The serum penetrates deeper into the skin and nourishes skin cells. It makes pores smaller and provides necessary moisturization to the skin.

Korean Skincare Step #7;
Applying Mask:

We use a mask to tighten skin pores. However, this step is not recommended to use on a daily basis. You can use a mask twice a weak. There're different varieties of mask available in the market. You can choose the one rich in vitamin C or you can also use Aztec Healing Clay mask. Clay mask suits best on my skin but everyone is different so choose one that is right for you.

Korean Skincare Step #8;
Eye Cream Application:

Sometimes, we don't give importance to eye cream but it's good to make your eyes look young and beautiful. The eye cream works best if you have a dark circle and puffy eyes. Also, fine lines on the forehead (between eyebrows) and on eyes side significantly improve after using eye cream. You can use eye cream twice a week but the best result comes from using it daily.

Korean Skincare Step #9;
Face Cream Application:

The face cream is used to treat skin dryness. After all, cleansing, scrubbing, and toning, your skin needs moisturization. If you have oily skin then go for an oil-free moisturizer.
Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream, 2.53 Fl Oz is a Korean Moistfull Collagen Cream. You need to massage it on your face from the center to out. This Cream is quite effective for many people.

Rosehip oil suits my skin and it also has so many benefits so I use it on a daily basis. You can also check its detail on 4 Best Rosehip Oil Uses.

Korean Skincare Step #10;
Suncream Application (SPF):

There are so many benefits of using suncream. Sun rays could do a lot of damage to a bared skin. It can give spots, early aging, pigmentation, sunburns, etc. In Summer always use Suncream 50 + SPF and in Winter you can use Suncream having low SPF. If you want to read about the importance of suncream then check post 'Importance of Suncream'.

In the end,

If you want to have flawless skin then try Korean beauty routine. Follow steps that suit your skin type and you won't regret.

  2. I have heard so much about Korean beauty treatments. I must say that the essence treatment sounds intriguing. Thanks for sharing.

  3. All I have heard about Korean beauty treatments and skin care, is that is like magic. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I loved hearing about your tips, do you follow this everyday? I am always on the go and I would love to hear if you have an "express" kind of skin regime. Thanks heaps for sharing!

  5. I've heard great things about Korean products. I will have to try these out for sure one day. My skin needs help!

  6. I love Korean skincare and I love the moistfull sleep mask makes my skin feel so nice and supple.

  7. Proper skin care is important because our skin is the largest barrier against infection that we have. Keeping our skin healthy and moist helps keep this barrier strong. When the skin gets dry or irritated by harsh soaps, cracks in the skin can occur. Cracks in the skin make a person more prone to infection.

  8. As a matter of fact, korean skincare is innovative. There is much more information and ideas to keep the skin young.

  9. I'm so bad about washing my face. I wash it when I shower or when I'm taking off my makeup or before putting it on, but I've noticed a big difference since turning 30. Moisturizer is a must and I know that there is so much more that I should do to keep it staying young and healthy.

  10. Your skin routine is so good. I am lazy and I wish I had such a dedicated regime, then I too would have great skin.

  11. I love a good skincare treatment. I have't heard of this products before, but I have heard of Korean skincare treatments. Good things.

  12. This is a great recommendation- Korea is known for their beauty products....I will pin one of your pins!

  13. I rarely do oil cleaning because my skin is oily but I think I should try it again.

  14. I need to try oil cleansing. I use it for my lotion but this sounds good for all that dirt.

  15. Some of these I do already- I've been really getting into face masks lately. I've been really curious about the oil cleansing though. That just sounds like it would make my skin waaay too oily, but maybe I'll have to give it a try to find out!

  16. I absolutely love Korean products they are so ahead of the game in how things work! I would love to give some of these a try!

  17. I enjoyed reading this post! I am also a Korean Skin Care fan, so this one is very useful. Thanks for sharing!

  18. The Korean skincare regime is so thorough but eventually, very worthwhile. I have a friend who followed it up and her face is absolute goals. Thus my decision to try the regime too.

  20. This sounds like such a great skincare regimen. I need try to some of these products, they sound great!

  21. This sounds like great skincare program. I love the way you explained all the skin care tips.

  22. These are all great beauty treatments and ideas. I'll have to give a few of them a try, this is the time of year when moisturizing is life saving. Thanks for sharing!

  23. I have a number of friends who recommend the use of Korean beauty products. I have yet to try them.

  24. I am loving K beauty skincare now-a-days.It makes my skin so soft and glowy.

Does Sugar Affect Your Skin, Hair & Body? 5 Reasons Why Sugar is Bad for You - Smeh Beautytips

Excess Sugar intake isn't good for our body and it can have many side effects. It's better to take only daily recommended sugar and if possible take added sugar as less as possible. Sugar can affect different parts of our body but here, I am writing about 5 main reasons to use less sugar in our daily diet.

1- Sugar causes Acne & Early Skin Ageing: Taking too much sugar in your diet links to acne. Sugary foods, juices, and drinks may cause breakouts.
