Exfoliate the dulls

Step 3:

Tone it with Toner

Toners maintain the pH of the skin. Some traditional toners are told to avoid as they dry out the skin. But K-beauty toners are formulated using ingredients like green tea, ginseng, or floral water that rehydrates the skin. Toners also create a base layer of hydration that allows other products to absorb the skin smoothly.

Add an essence

Korean glass skin is all about keeping your skin hydrated. Adding an essence which is a lightweight, water-based product that adds moisture to the skin. Apart from hydration, essence also treats targeted skin concerns like pigmentation and redness.

Using a light-on-skin moisturizer not only seals in the moisture and hydrates the skin but also makes your skin smooth, supple, and even. While choosing the moisturizer, look for one that has nourishing floral extracts, is a powerful hydrator & has antioxidants.

Step 7:

Protection with Sunscreen

Seal with face masks
