KOREAN 10 step skincare routine busted

Feb 9, 2021

We’ve all heard about the famous 10 step Korean skincare routine that when followed will give you the glass like skin that Koreans are known for.  We may assume that all Kpop stars abide by this regimen but it seems like their routine is much simpler than we think.  Let’s take a look at the nighttime skincare routine shared by some Korean stars and influencers.


Famous actress of Princess Diary and Coffee Prince, Yoon Eun Hye recently shared her skincare routine via her Youtube channel.  We can see that her routine is basically just cleansing, toner, and moisturizer.  An ampoule and essence was only used occasionally to soothe her dryness or to level up her skin for an important schedule.


Korean makeup artist, Pony, shared her nighttime skincare routine and it consists of double cleansing, mist, toner and face cream.  Only for 3 times a week does she use a face mask and an additional face wash with green tea powder to detox her skin.



We can see that Ahin’s routine is quite simple as well - double cleansing, toner, serum, moisturizer.  Quick and easy, even the video was less than 6 minutes

The 10 step routine is definitely not a one size fits all formula. Instead, why not try mixing up the steps for different skin types and concerns!
