Korean Skincare Routine
Dear Lucy caters to all skin types, offering products for dry, oily, and combination skin. Our collection features innovative and exquisite Korean skincare products that transform your skincare routine into a delightful ritual.
To attain radiant and glowing skin, follow these essential morning and night steps:
step 1: OIL BASED CLEANSERS
The initial and crucial step in your skincare routine is cleansing. By double-cleansing your skin, you effectively remove dirt, oil, and residue that can clog pores and hinder the efficacy of your products.
For your evening routine, use oil-based cleansers to dissolve stubborn makeup and sunscreen.
Remember to rinse thoroughly before moving on to the next step.
step 2: WATER BASED CLEANSERS
A water-based cleanser, which can be a gel or foam, into both your morning and evening routines. This gentle cleanser effectively eliminates any residual dirt and oil, while also balancing your skin's pH levels, optimizing its performance. Especially at night, oil residue and dead skin cells accumulate on your skin, making proper cleansing an essential first step in the Korean skincare routine.
step 3: EXFOLIATORS
Exfoliation is key to removing lingering dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling smooth and radiant. This process enhances product absorption, allowing them to work more effectively.
Incorporate exfoliation into your routine 1-2 times a week, preferably during your evening skincare regimen.
** SOME EXFOLIATORS CAN BE VERY HARSH, USE CAUTIOUSLY
step 4: TONERS
Toner serves to soften and hydrate your skin post-cleansing. It readies your skin for the next skincare step by rebalancing its pH levels. Some toners, depending on their ingredients, can also provide mild exfoliation. Incorporate toner into both your morning and evening routines after cleansing. You can use both exfoliating and soothing toners in the same routine for added benefits.
step 5: ESSENCES
Essences add hydration and targets specific skin concerns. It has a lighter concentration and texture than serums.
Include it in both your morning and evening routines after toning.
step 6: SERUMS/AMPOULES
Serums and ampoules play the role of diligent worker bees in your skincare routine. With their smaller molecules, they penetrate deep into the skin layers to address specific skin concerns. These potent products are enriched with powerful ingredients and nutrients to tackle issues like acne, fine lines, large pores, hyperpigmentation, and more. Include a serum or ampoule in both your morning and evening routines for optimal results.
step 7: MOISTURIZERS
An important step in your skincare routine is moisturizing. Moisturizers function as humectants, locking in and preserving moisture levels in the skin while acting as a protective seal for the previously applied products. They are available in various textures, such as gels, emulsions, lotions, creams, and oils, catering to different skin needs. Incorporate a moisturizer into both your morning and evening routines to keep your skin well-nourished and hydrated.
step 8: SUNSCREENS
Sunscreen is an absolute must for safeguarding your skin. Sun damage contributes to numerous skin concerns, including sun spots, wrinkles, moles, sunburns, sensitivity, and irritation. To shield yourself from harmful UV rays, apply sunscreen regardless of the weather – rain or shine. Even on cloudy days, harmful UV rays are still present, so protecting your skin is essential.
Be patient when incorporating new skincare products into your routine.
Generally, it takes around 6-8 weeks for most products to demonstrate their optimal effectiveness.
In the event of any allergic reactions, I advise discontinuing the product's use and promptly seeking medical assistance from a doctor.
Eye Creams: (AM/PM) Incorporating eye serums, creams, and patches into your skincare routine can effectively diminish dark circles, fine lines, and provide adequate hydration to the delicate eye area. To begin, use eye creams as part of your morning and evening routines. As you progress and desire a more comprehensive approach, consider adding eye serums and/or eye patches to further enhance your skincare routine.
Spot Treatments: (AM/PM) Spot treatments are designed to address specific concerns on your face and are applied only to the targeted area rather than the entire face. Incorporate a spot treatment into your morning or evening skincare routine, depending on the product, to effectively tackle your specific concern.
