Do I really need a cleanser?

Do I really need to cleanse and what happens If I don’t?
Your dead skin cells will basically start building up creating a hard surface on your skin and it will feel ruff and uneven. The skin wont absorbs any moisture, due to that everything is clogged up. This is also what happened to my skin (read my skin story), not that I didn’t wash, but that my skin was so dry and I didn’t know how much I really needed to exfoliate (just because of my dry skin). So everything I put on just stayed on top. Nothing would penetrate my dry surface.

The double cleansing method

Basically it is as it sounds, cleansing twice. This is a great way of getting you face really clean.

How many are using, one cleanser, and then a toner on a cotton pad. Then you look at the cotton pad, is it clean? No, most often it is not. What people, including me (before Korean skincare was all on my brain) did, was using toner as your last step. Korean toners are so much more than that and should not be used as a last cleansing of the residue step. You can read about Korean toners here

What is the Korean skincare routine

My Korean skincare routine

The skincare I learned when I was younger was, cleanse tone and moisturize, that’s it. Nothing more and nothing less. Sometimes I even skipped the toner part due to that I felt more dry (probably used toners with alcohol in. The reason for alcohol in toner was probably due to being afraid of acne and thinking that that would be the solution.. ohhh my how wrong I was.. When I grew older I started using toner without alcohol and an eye cream. The toner I sometimes skipped.  This is what I think is most common in the rest of the world (except Asia that is).

The story of my skin before and after Kbeauty

My Korean skincare routine

After years of struggling trying to find a way to get my skin to feel moisturized it finally happened. I have tried lots of different methods and products and now finally I have found what works for me.My problems were that my skin was very dehydrated and flaky. I had times when my face hurt so bad and had small bleeding wounds. I tried using drugstore products, pharmacy products, and professional products with recommendation from dermatologists.
