Skincare Purchase: Etude House Products

Aside from researching different makeup products, I am also now into knowing more of how to take care of my skin. Of course, how can I enjoy doing my makeup if my skin is not clean and healthy, right? I am a total convert now. Before, I just use an ordinary hard soap to clean my face. That’s it. But now, not anymore! I have to follow the correct and complete skincare routine so as to make sure that my skin feels fresh and hydrated all the time.

I don’t know if you will agree but when it comes to skincare, I guess the perfect routine to follow would be those done by Koreans. Why not? Koreans are known for their really flawless skin. They seem so perfect! However, it is no joke if you are going to follow their skincare routine.

  1. double cleanse (consists of makeup remover and cleanser)
  2. massage & mask
  3. tone
  4. essence/serum
  5. moisturize

The routine can even go further to 11 steps (from skinandtonics.com):

  1. oil cleanser
  2. foaming cleanser
  3. toner/booster
  4. eye cream (optional)
  5. sheet mask (optional, nighttime only)
  6. essence/serum
  7. emulsion
  8. spot treatment (optional)
  9. cream (optional)
  10. sleeping pack (optional, nighttime only)
  11. sunscreen (morning only)

Whew! Well, I might go for the 5 basic steps for now. The 11-step routine could be soooo expensive. 😦
