Innisfree Can Cut Down Your 10-Step Korean Skincare Routine To 5 Simple Steps

By Alyssa Martinez @ItsMariaAlyssa

Korean skincare is all about getting to the root of the skin condition rather than covering it with make-up thus a 10-long ritual of Korean skincare routine. But let's face it, committing to a 10-step skin care routine that you must do twice a day can be impractical especially if you are on tight budget.

The 10-step K-skin care routine involves an oil cleanse, double cleanse, exfoliator, toner, essence, treatments (serums, ampules, boosters), sheet masks, eye cream, moisturizer, and finally, sun protection during the day. Using as many products on your face may clear it out for the first few days but it can potentially strip out your natural oils causing redness, irritation, and breakouts.

For a daily skin care regimen, a 5-step, sometimes 6-step routine will suffice the 10-step especially Innisfree products are made with natural ingredients sourced from Jeju Island. Here are a simple 5-step Korean skincare routine and product recommendations from Innisfree to simplify your K-beauty regimen.

1. Oil Cleanse: Olive Real Cleansing Oil (P780) or Olive Real Cleansing Tissue (P325)

An oil cleanser helps remove waterproof makeup, dirt, and excess sebum. You can always swap this step with your usual makeup wipes, remover, or micellar water but an oil cleanser is highly recommended as it won't leave your skin dry. Innisfree's Olive Real Cleansing Oil is made with premium extra virgin premium olive oil that contains antioxidants and vitamins. It will moisturize and hydrate the skin while removing the makeup and dirt effectively.

2. Double Cleanse: Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam (P370)

If you opted for only the makeup wipes or makeup remover, then this step is crucial. Double cleansing will clean out tough residues left by your waterproof makeup and full-coverage foundation. It's important to look for a cleanser that won't dry out your skin like the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam. This foaming cleanser contains volcanic scoria from Jeju that can clean out the pores and balance out sebum production.

Available at Althea and in Style Korean for$16.

3. Toner: Green Tea Balancing Skin (P640)

A toner is meant to further clean the pores and protect the skin from radical or sun damage. A good toner can also decrease redness, irritation, and discolored spots, leaving the skin smoother, brighter, and even. If you have combination skin, the Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Skin Toner will be your new best friend; it helps restore the skin's natural balance and hydrate the skin throughout the day and night.

Available at Althea and Style Korean for $25

4. Serum: The Green Tea Seed Serum (P820)

Although it's not necessary to include a serum in your daily routine, they can penetrate the skin deeper than the average moisturizers. They contain concentrated ingredients that target and solve skin problems directly. A good serum should contain anti-oxidants anti-inflammatories, and hydrators and The Green Tea Seed Serum from Innisfree have all those and more. It has a Dual Moisture-Rising Technology to help lock in moisture and treat acne-prone skin.

5. Moisturizer: Perfect UV Protection Cream Triple Care 50+ PA+++ (P715) and Orchid Night Cream (P1080)

Also available in Style Korean, Perfect UV Protection Cream Triple Care 50+ PA+++ ($16)

The last thing you should do in your simple 5-step Korean skin care routine is to apply a moisturizer or lotion that helps the skin retain and lock in moisture. During the day, you should opt for a moisturizer that contains SPF like the Perfect UV Protection Cream Triple Care 50+ PA+++. Meanwhile, for nightly use, you can scrap the moisturizer altogether and use a night repairing creams like the Orchid Night Cream or an eye cream like the Orchid Eye Cream.

Available at Lazada and Althea.

Optional: Skin Clinic Mask (P115) or It's Real Squeeze Mask (P50)

Masks are imperative to target your skin problems but using them on a daily basis is unnecessary. You can use sheet masks more often than peel-off or wash-off masks. Remember to pick a mask that's suitable for your skin type and concerns.

Available at BeautyMNL and Calyxta. Also available in Style Korean, Skin Clinic Mask ($2 each), and It's Real Squeeze Masks ($6) and Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask ($14).
