The Korean Skincare Routine – Step by Step!
1 Double Cleanse
Double cleansing is simple, really – just clean your face twice!

Especially those days when you have makeup on – the first step is to remove excess makeup, dirt and grime using an oil based cleanser.
And the second step is to deep cleanse your skin to get rid of dead cells.
We love how the Activated Charcoal Soap by Alanna Naturally Beautiful goes deep inside and gets your skin ready for all the goodies to follow!
Use gold old natural scrubs and exfoliation to uncover fresh, soft skin underneath. Once a week or twice a month is good enough for that fresh bride look!

Think haldi-besan-yogurt or try Alanna Naturally Beautiful‘s Almond Scrub to nourish, mildly exfoliate and remove tan.
Toning helps your skin regain its delicate pH balance. After you’ve washed your face with various cleansers and exfoliated, it is often stripped of its natural oils and loses its usual balance.
A good toner like Alanna Naturally Beautiful‘s Rose Mist has grapeseed oil, and it’s Lavender & Mint Mist has jojoba extracts to help your skin regain its softness, and instantly refreshes it back to life!
4 Use an Essence & Serum

This is the most mysterious step of the Korean Skincare Routine.
An essence is almost like a watery serum – so you can use a concentrated essence and a moisturizing serum to rejuvenate your skin and plump it up from inside out!
5 Face Mask

No bride-to-be can do without her share of face masks. Imagine all those funny moments walking around with multani mitti on your face!
We love how Alanna Naturally Beautiful‘s Golden Glow Mask and Glow Miracle Mask leave your skin bright, soft and hydrated with every use and correct skin pigmentation and patchiness.
6 Under Eye Gel
Oh the stresses of love, new family, trousseau shopping, late night calls, unachieveable 8 hours of beauty sleep… and trying to look fresh and radiant through it all! 😱

But you can’t make it to your wedding day with puffy eyes and dark circles…
So go for an under eye gel with essential natural oils and aloe vera extracts that energizes the delicate skin under your eyes, corrects puffiness and fights dark circles.
If you’re aiming for super soft silky skin on your wedding day – there’s just no alternative to moisturizing! Dry skin, oily skin or combination skin, moisturizing is a must.
Choose the right moisturizer – day cream during the day and a hydrating face serum at night.
8 Sun Protect!
The Korean Skincare Routine is not just about loving and replenishing your skin, but also about protecting it from free radical damage from sun’s harmful UV rays.

Whether you hop out for a shopping marathon or a quick jog in the park – don’t forget to lather on a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
Bridal Skincare in a Nutshell!
