Korean 10 Step Skincare Routine

Being one of the world’s leading cosmetics country, Koreans will go through great lengths just to have perfect skin. They call it the ‘Cloudless Skin’ which is completely clear, flawless complexion, being more connected to the ‘healthy aura’ that one exudes from the inside out. They believe in having the perfect skin complexion from their natural skin that they are confident enough to go for the natural no make-up look. It is the highest level of make up because your skin must be perfect and flawless in the natural.

To achieve the 'Cloudless Skin', Koreans usually follow the 10 step skincare routine. I'm sure many of you have heard of the Korean 10 step skincare routine but not sure how to go about doing it. We will be breaking down the steps and guide you through it to achieve the perfect 'Cloudless Skin', which usually starts from the lightest consistency to the thickest consistency.

The basic steps in the morning will be the cleanser, toner, serum, moisturiser and sunscreen. Therefore, there is no need to the 10 step twice everyday because some products don’t need to be used everyday. Also, due to the fact that there's always a lack of time in the morning, the basic steps are enough. However, it is important to always leave the house with the sunscreen on, especially in the sunny Singapore.
