Read more about 10 Step Korean skin care routine – Everything you need to know about.
Step 1: Wash your Face
As in the Korean skin care routine, Joy starts her routine with a cleansing step. She uses an oil cleanser to remove break down makeup and dirt from the skin.
Step 2: Wash AGAIN!
She follows up the washing with a double cleansing step. In this step, she uses a water-based cleanser that hydrates and smooths the skin. Joy prefers to use cleansing foam for this.
Step 3: Apply Sheet Mask
Sheet masks are one of the favorite Korean skin care products of many K-Pop idols for hydration. Joy from Red Velvet prefers to use a cream mask which is designed to soften, tone, and lift skin.
Step 4: Tone your Skin
To moisturize and refresh her skin, Joy uses a liquid toner. It restores any pH imbalances caused by the cleansers used in the first two steps. The toner also tightens the skin pores.
Step 5: Tone your Skin AGAIN!
Joy is certainly a fan of ‘double’ skin care steps as she likes double toning along with double-cleansing. A foaming bubble toner is the choice toner after using liquid toner in the previous step. Most bubble toners have some exfoliating compounds which can remove dead skin cells.
Step 6: Treat Skin with Ampoule
After double cleansing and double toning, Joy uses products that focus on treating specific skin issues. She uses a moisturizing ampoule, which is like a serum. The active ingredients are even in a higher concentration than serum, and Joy prefers to use a moisturizing ampoule.
Step 7: Treat your Skin
It’s hard to believe that your favorite K-Pop stars can get something as simple as spots. But, they are just as human as the rest of us. Joy uses a spot treatment every day to get rid of any blemishes and breakouts. She uses this treatment only at night.
Step 8: Moisturize your Face
The final step in Joy’s daytime skin care routine is to slather on a moisturizer. It boosts the skin’s hydration, and she uses a moisturizer with a non-sticky finish. For night time, she adds on two more steps after skin moisturization.
Step 9: Protect your Skin
As a part of the night-time routine, she applies a barrier cream, which forms a protective layer on the skin. It prevents any contaminants from irritating the face overnight.
Step 10: Apply a Sleeping Mask
Lastly, Joy uses a sleeping mask before going to bed. Just like cream masks, sleeping masks are massaged into the skin to soothe and hydrate. You can leave these masks overnight so that the skin is radiant from the moment you wake up.
