Korean personal care routine for men in 2020

Korean beauty is not only because of its multiple benefits, but because IT IS WORKING. Instead of just hydration, it’s also teaches you how to treat your skin from the inside out. Whether it is a boring complexion, dry or blotchy spots, out-of-control oiliness, acne, Korean beauty will fix all of them for you.

Koreans believe the future lies within your face, so many take the time to create the best future possible by ensuring their skin is as healthy as can be.

It’s really a lifestyle movement, a bit like the boom in old-school barbershops a few years ago, just with the added advantage of great skin.

We suggest to go from thinnest to thickest product. Meaning you want to layer on products that are the most water-like to most viscous so that they aren’t overpowered.

Ok, we get it, this might seem like a lot, but once it is part of your daily habit, the traditional 10-step Korean skincare routine is surprisingly easy. Here are the right products, in the right order, along with the right way to use them all for a face worthy of a K-pop star.

Step 1: Oil Cleanse

  • Rids the skin of dirt, debris and bacteria.

  • Morning and night, worked in with a deep massage.

Step 2: Water Cleanser

  • Removes any remaining water-based dirt and debris.

  • Morning and night, in gentle circular motions.

Step 3: Exfoliator

  • Removes dead skin and allows the following products to absorb more efficiently.

  • Twice a week in the evening, focusing on problem areas.

Step 4: Essence

  • An active lotion that hydrates and strengthens the skin.

  • Morning and night, use a small amount and pat it on the face and neck.

Step 5: Serums

  • Directly treat problem areas or infuse the whole face with active ingredients.

  • Morning and night, use a small amount and pat it on the face and neck or affected areas.

Step 6: Sheet Masks

  • Prolonged contact with your skin allows concentrated ingredients to be fully absorbed.

  • Twice a week, smooth onto clean skin and relax for 20 minutes, then pat in the remaining essence.

Step 7: Eye Cream

  • Hydrates and brightens the eye area.

  • Morning and night, use your ring finger to gently tap it around the entire orbital bone.

Step 8: Emulsion

  • Nourishes and binds moisture to the skin.

  • Morning and night, pat into the face and neck.

Step 9: Moisturiser

  • Seals in moisture to smooth and plump the skin.

  • Morning and night, pat into the face and neck.

Step 10: SPF (Sun Protection Factor)

  • Protects the skin from UVA and UVB damage.

  • Reapply throughout the day on the face, neck, shoulders and ears.
