What is the 10-step K-beauty skincare routine?

by Aliya Turarbek
What is the 10-step K-beauty skincare routine?

The famous 10-step K-beauty skincare routine is a comprehensive regimen known for its thoroughness and attention to skin health. Here are the steps involved:

  1. Oil Cleanser: Start by using an oil-based cleanser to remove makeup, sunscreen, and excess oil from the skin. Massage it gently and rinse off with lukewarm water.

  2. Water-Based Cleanser: Follow up with a water-based cleanser to remove any remaining impurities, sweat, and dirt. This step ensures a deep cleanse without stripping away natural oils.

  3. Exfoliation: Use a gentle exfoliator 2-3 times a week to slough off dead skin cells, revealing smoother and brighter skin. This step helps in better absorption of subsequent products.

  4. Toner: Apply a toner to balance the skin’s pH levels and prepare it for better absorption of subsequent products. Toners hydrate and can target specific skin concerns.

  5. Essence: Essence is a lightweight, hydrating product that aids in cell turnover and skin repair. It’s applied after toner to deeply hydrate and nourish the skin.

  6. Serum/Ampoule: Use a serum or ampoule to target specific skin concerns like hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, or acne. These products contain potent active ingredients for intense treatment.

  7. Sheet Mask: Apply a sheet mask 1-2 times a week for a concentrated burst of hydration and nourishment. Sheet masks are soaked in serums and can address various skin issues.

  8. Eye Cream: Use a specialized eye cream to address concerns like dark circles, puffiness, or fine lines around the delicate eye area. Gently pat the product around the eyes.

  9. Moisturizer: Apply a moisturizer to lock in all the previous layers of hydration. Choose one suitable for your skin type—whether it’s gel-based for oily skin or richer for dry skin.

  10. Sunscreen: Always finish your routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day, even if you're indoors. Sun protection is crucial for preventing premature aging and skin damage.

Remember, while the 10-step routine is popular in K-beauty, it's not mandatory. You can adjust the steps based on your skin type, concerns, and personal preferences. Start with a few key steps and products, then build your routine as needed.
