The Ultimate Korean Beauty Routine for Dry Skin


If dryness is your arch nemesis, we feel ya. Between battling cracked skin, itchiness, and constant flakiness, it’s a nightmare trying to run for president, I mean getting to class *ahem ahem*

When it comes to dry skin, there are quite a few ingredients you can actually count on: Hyaluronic Acid, Honey, Aloe Vera to name a few, but life’s more complicated than applying a fruit salad, right? Instead of layering on copious amounts of cream that ultimately costs a fortune, here’s your customized Korean skincare routine for dry skin that’ll have you glowing in no-time.

P.S. Stay with us right till the end and you’ll find yourself winning a teeny-weeny treat.

Step 1: Double-cleanse: Is your face even clean if you ain’t double-cleansing? Well, if you’re new to the skincare biz, double-cleansing is a Korean coined term for cleansing twice. No, this will NOT strip your face down and make it even drier, in fact, your Sahara Desert visage needs this technique to stay hydrated. First, use A. by BOM ULTRA WATERY Eoseongcho Cleanser to remove waterproof makeup, grime, and sebum build-up. It’s gentle enough for heavy-duty mascara, too.

Fun fact: We opened our eyes to see if it stings, but nothing! This balm-cleanser literally melts on contact with skin and becomes oil, dissolving all impurities without drying out your face. Then, use a water-based facewash like Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser Packed with hyaluronic acid, ceramide 3 and olive oil, it’ll take off any remaining dirt while moisturizing too. Told ya we know what we’re talking about.

Step 2: Tone: Now that’s your skin’s sparkling clean, use your fingertips to apply toner. Pro-tip: Don’t wipe your face dry after cleansing, let it naturally air dry. This cool trick will let your toner sink in faster for a quicker insta-worthy glow ^^ Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner does the deed, seals in moisture while rebalancing your skin’s pH levels back to optimum but if you’re going all out, try out A. by BOM ULTRA BOTANIC Skin Water It’s almost like water, with six plant extracts from the desert. Yep, no kidding. Cactus flower, cactus fruit, aloe vera, coconut, and baobab will replenish your skin like nothing else. Plus, that size, dayumn, that bottle lasts a lifetime. One drop and you’ll be hooked.

Step 3: Serum: Usually we’d recommend a hyaluronic acid-infused serum but dry skin calls for the ultimate hydration. Introduce A. by BOM ULTRA TIME RETURN Eye Serum and there’s no turning back. Your once parched, dehydrated skin is gonna feel so nourished that it won’t know what hit it. This tall drink of water contains botanical extracts – aloe, rose, chamomile, bergamot, lavender, and more oils to quench your face like never before. One drop goes a long way, and don’t be fooled by the labeling – douse your whole face in it. But be warned, those dark circles will be gone, give it a month.

Step 4: Sheet Mask: Sheet masks are the easiest way to rehydrate your skin on the DL. In fact, we recommend adding a sheet mask to your nightly skincare routine daily. Try it out for a week if you’re still skeptical, and we assure you’ll be a convert, trust us. Opt for moisture-infused ingredients like honey, aloe, royal jelly, fruit-based masks and collagen-boosting ones too. Limese Real Brightening & Glow up Face Mask is the most ideal as it shows instant results. Just slap it on for 15-20 minutes at night and your skin will forever feel supple.

Step 5: Moisturize: We’ve saved the best for last, Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream Especially formulated for dry skin, this cream restores the hydration balance to stabilize the skin. So, even if you suffer from rosacea, inflamed skin or worse, it’ll soothe it all with yeast-derived beta-glucan.  Having won 2017’s Soko Glam Best of Beauty Award, this is one addition you will never replace.
