Step 1: Double Cleanse

Double cleanse is the most important step of K-beauty skincare regimen to make sure you keep your skin clear. Cleansing oil can remove the waterproof makeup and sunscreen completely. Firstly, use cleansing oil to massage your face for a few minutes. Then, use warm water to emulsify and rinse your face. Second part of double cleanse is using a cleansing foam to wash off all dirt, sweat and impurities deeply.

Step 2: Toner

Toner is used to lock in the moisture instantly after cleansing. It helps your skin to balance the pH value and absorb skincare products more effectively. Texture of Korean toners are weightless without clogging pores. You can follow “seven-skin method” to pat the toner for 7 layers to maximize the moisture.
