The Rise of Korean Skincare: Cleansing 101 🧼

Korean skincare has gained immense popularity for its innovative and meticulous approach to achieving healthy, radiant skin. Known for its passion for self-care and embracing natural beauty, the internet has wholeheartedly embraced the Korean skincare philosophy. Korean skincare is not just about treating skin concerns; it is a lifestyle that emphasises prevention and self-pampering and prioritising skin health.

Vanity aside, skin is the largest organ of the human body, so it’s a no brainer we have to prioritise taking good care of it!

The Power of Double Cleansing:

At the heart of Korean skincare lies the principle of double cleansing. This two-step method involves using an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser. While it may sound time-consuming, double cleansing is well worth the effort. The first step, using an oil-based cleanser, helps to effectively break down makeup, sunscreen, and excess oil on the skin's surface. (We highly recommend oil based cleansers for products such as our Matte Liquid Lipstick formula or Ultimate Ink Eyeliner) By incorporating an oil-based cleanser into your double cleansing routine, you can effortlessly bid adieu to any long-staying products, leaving your skin feeling fresh and clean.

Why Triple Cleansing Takes It to the Next Level:

For those with particularly acne-prone or congested skin, the Korean skincare world has taken cleansing even further with the introduction of triple cleansing. Triple cleansing involves incorporating a gentle exfoliating cleanser into the routine after the initial double cleanse. This additional step helps to deep clean the pores, remove dead skin cells, and enhance the overall clarity and brightness of the skin. But remember, stick to gentle exfoliants and limit it to once or twice a week to avoid over-exfoliation.

Finding Your Perfect Cleanser:

To fully embrace the Korean skincare approach, finding the right oil-based and water-based cleansers for your skin type is crucial. Look for cleansers that are formulated for your specific needs, whether it's hydrating, clarifying, or balancing. With countless options available, you'll be able to discover the perfect combination that caters to your unique skincare requirements.

So why not indulge in the Korean skincare philosophy and let the art of cleansing transform your skincare routine?
