Today I’m sharing a great Korean mini start routine suitable for acne, pimples and acne prone skin.
I get a lot of questions about Korean skin care suitable for acne, acne prone skin and pimples. Which products do you actually need to focus on? Today, I’m sharing a Korean mini start routine especially targeting acne, pimples, blemishes and troubled skin that is out of balance. If you suffer from acne prone skin all together, then this post is for you. We’re talking daily deep cleansing which I think is the most important step in any skin care routine really. But especially if you suffer from breakouts and clogged pores. Also, a great gentle face cream that is hydrating, healing and calming the skin with no irritation or clogging the pores. And for emergencies, a spot treatment or quick fix for targeting unwanted pimples and blemishes.
Cleansing is the most important step in any skin care routine I feel. If the skin is dirty with old makeup residue, clogged pores and full of dead skin cells, then it’s quite obvious that the skin cannot absorb and benefit from skin care very well. Not to mention that it’s rather disgusting to apply products on top of dirty skin. Well, these 4 Korean products combined would be a nice start routine especially suitable for acne, pimples and acne prone skin. Add a toner, an exfoliating face mask and a bunch of hydrating sheet masks to further boost your skin. If you have sensitive skin, troubled skin or if you suffer from acne then it’s a good idea to start slowly with a few products, and then add products gradually. Otherwise, the skin may strike back with breakouts and what not. Here are my top 4 best K-beauty products suitable for acne and pimples. A Korean mini start routine to gradually build on.
