Exfoliation is the act of removing dead skin from the surface of the skin. It is a very Important Step in Korean Skincare Routine for summer. It can be done in either of these two ways:

  • Physically scrubbing away the dead skin with some grain based Scrubs, Brushes and some with some Clean Cloth.

The essence is crucial for Korean Skin care Routine. Korean women would never forget to apply essence, whether it is morning or night. After cleaning and toning of your skin, apply essence. You can apply the product evenly all over your face and neck by using your hand (or a cotton pad).

Generally, the essence is a little bit creamier than toner.  It contains higher levels of active ingredients and it penetrates deeper in the skin. It hydrates the skin after cleansing and toning.
