#Your morning routine and key steps
Step 1: Wash with water
Cleanse your face with just water in the AM, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Step 2: Toner
Toners refresh the skin and prep it to absorb the next product(s) well. They also balance the pH level of the skin. Toners balance the moisture levels of your skin and also remove any remote impurities that the cleansers might have missed.
Step 3: Essence
Essence is unique to the Korean beauty culture. It is a toner / serum hybrid that has a watery consistency and skin repairing properties. It is hydrating and rejuvenates the skin.
Step 4: Ampoule
Ampoule is vitamin-rich version of essence. Whether you’re trying to get rid of fine lines, acne or hyper-pigmentation, nothing works as hard as a serum or ampoule packed full of potent ingredients.
Concentrated formulas with an unprecedented amount of active ingredients, serums target specific skin concerns like wrinkles,
dark spots, and dehydration.
Step 6: Eye cream
The next step is to take care of your under-eye skin. The skin around your eyes is delicate and needs extra attention and care.
Eye creams are perfect for it; they treat dark circles and smoother the skin.
Step 7: Moisturizer
Moisturizer hydrates the skin by sealing in moisture. It makes your skin supple and soft. They come in many forms: lotion, gel, emulsion, cream, sleeping pack…
Step 8: Sunscreen
Sunscreen with a good SPF is a must, especially if you are stepping out during the day. Sunscreen shields your skin from the harmful UV rays of the skin and protects it from tanning, pigmentation, and dark spots.
