Korean beauty rou­tine

Some­where be­tween the turn of the cen­tury and the mid-2000s, In­done­sia was over­whelmed by the Korean Wave. Not only were we in­tro­duced to K-pop and K-dra­mas, but we re­al­ized that Korea’s idols and ac­tors had bright, pore-less com­plex­ions–even on our HD tele­vi­sion screens.

Al­though the no­to­ri­ous “Korean 10-Step Skin­care Rou­tine” that those idols use may seem in­tim­i­dat­ing– with its in­tense cleans­ing and mois­tur­iz­ing,–the ex­pe­ri­ence can be ex­tremely ther­a­peu­tic and the re­sults equally as re­ward­ing.

Sasya Aile, from In­done­sian-based Korean beauty blog hel­losasy­achi.com, said that the fo­cus of the rou­tine was like any other found in the beauty world, of­fer­ing prom­ises of clean, bright skin free from spots, among other things.

“How­ever, a lot of Korean skin­care prod­ucts con­tain in­gre­di­ents that are more nat­u­ral, in­clud­ing many that are found on Jeju Is­land,” Sasya says, re­fer­ring to Korea’s famed re­sort is­land.

Al­though some may look at the long list of prod­ucts needed for a sin­gle rou­tine as un­nec­es­sary, Sasya said vhat ev­ery step was im­por­tant in or­der for your skin to reach its high­est po­ten­tial.

But don’t be de­terred, she adds.“In my opin­ion, the most es­sen­tial step is the use of a serum and a mois­tur­izer.”
