While you don’t have to go as far as the 10 to 14-step Korean skincare routine, here are 8 game-changers to upgrade your current one.
BANILA CO: Clean it Zero
If you wear makeup or sunscreen daily (the latter being a must), then you need to double-cleanse every night. No matter how amazing your facial wash claims to be, it’s not going to cut it. You need to diligently remove your makeup first, and Banila Co’s Clean it Zero is perfect for the job.
It comes in a sorbet-like balm that transforms into silky oil upon lathering. The product will dissolve even the most stubborn waterproof makeup and other impurities without stripping your skin of essential oils.
COSRX: Low-PH Good Morning Cleanser
Here’s a great cleanser for those with oily, acne-prone skin. Its low PH will balance out your skin and make it an unwelcome environment for zit-causing bacteria. This 2-in-1 deep facial cleanser also gently removes dead skin cells.
C20: Original Pure Vitamin C20
Struggling with post-acne marks and dark sunspots? This ultra powerful serum will drastically improve those discolorations in just a matter of days. The C20 is packed with 100% pure vitamin C, which will give you a clearer and brighter complexion.
Make sure you wait 20 minutes before you put any other products to give the C20 uninterrupted time to work its magic. Also, keep it in a cool, dark place to prevent it from oxidizing.
COSRX: BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
Stop the formation of blackheads and acne before it ruins your most important days. This pore-clearing power liquid penetrates deep to dislodge impurities and sebum buildup. This product will help you get clearer skin with smaller pores while moisturizing and brightening it as well.
