I’ll take you through it step-by-step and when you’re done reading, you can hit the ground running and be on your way to flawless, glowing skin too!
Step 1: Oil cleanser
Your journey to flawless skin begins with the K-beauty essential - double-cleansing. Start with an oil cleanser that will remove makeup and impurities.
An oil-based cleanser like Lava Art's Perfect Cleansing Oil is formulated with Glycerin. An anti-aging ingredient offers gentle exfoliation and deep and thorough pore cleanse without stripping your skin of its natural moisture.
Step 2: Foam cleanser
Once your skin is free of makeup and grime, you’ll then need to cleanse your face once again with a foam cleanser. Opt for lightweight ones like our Perfect Foam Cleanser that will exfoliate and hydrate your skin, getting rid of dead skin cells so your skin will be left rejuvenated and supple - ready for the third step.
Step 3: Toner
Applying toner is crucial because the right toner like Perfect Facial Toner will help balance your skin’s pH levels, boost cell regeneration and minimize fine lines for a softer, more supple complexion.
Step 4: Essence
This step is literally essential in your skincare routine. The main goal of our Perfect Hydrating Boost Essence is to hydrate your skin and to help it absorb the other products in your skincare routine better. Not only will applying essence make the active ingredients in your skincare routine that much more effective, it also provides a ton of moisture deep within the skin, restoring the natural moisture balance.
Step 5: Serum
Serums are concentrated formulas with potent ingredients to help target specific skin concerns. Opt for serums like our Perfect Hydration Boost Serum with lots of antioxidants and vitamins to help combat dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles whilst nourishing your skin with moisture.
Step 6: Sheet mask
A K-beauty fave, sheet masks are a cloth saturated with skin-loving ingredients that are perfect for all skin types. Anyone can benefit from sheet masks as they delivery deeply hydrating and anti-ageing treatment.
Step 7: Eye cream
The skin around our eyes are not just thin, but sensitive, making it dry easily. Using an eye cream will not only brighten your under-eye, it will also hydrate the areas around it, reducing the look of fatigue and preventing eye bags.
Step 8: Moisturizer
A moisturizer is the last step to seal in all those skin-loving ingredients in the steps you’ve applied above. We recommend our Perfect Light Facial Cream that's Hyaluronic Acid based to keep your skin supple and hydrated.
