I have always been curious about the 10-step korean skincare routine, so I tried it for an entire month to see how it was & if there were any noticeable benefits! I tried a oil cleanser, water-based cleanser, scrub, toner, essence, moisturizer, eye cream, night serum, and SPF every day and night for 31 days to see if they live up to the hype!
To clarify, I stopped using the sheet masks after the first week and I used the scrub 3-4 times a week! So I guess it was more like ~450 applications a month. I got my kit here: https://sokoglam.com/products/10-step-skincare-routine-set-combo

HELLO FRIENDS!!! i just wanted to clarify, i know ur not supposed to put on a scrub every single day, i used the scrub like 3-4 times a week! i had a line in the video about it and i think we cut it for some reason. so i guess my math was wrong and it was more like ~450 applications!
thanks & sorry for the confusion!!
I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. (Isa. 66:4) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 The. 2:9-12)
I love Korean Skin care. I am never using foundation on my skin ever and actually don't have to use filters in photos. Plus, skin texture is a lot healthier. A 10 step process however is out of question. I do 3 - 4 step: wash, tone/essence, Moisturize and Sunscreen. Works just fine.
This routine is ridiculous. It might only work for asians since caucasian, black, and other skin types get things like acne, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, lines, wrinkles, etc., and NOTHING in this routine helps with that. And no, using a scrub and doing masks won't help with that, neither that serum that I'm pretty sure it doesn't contains any of the ingredients that are proven to reduce wrinkles like retinol or vitamin c. I think that all they want to achieve with this ridiculous routine is that excessive moisture to get that glass-looking skin, because other than that is useless for actual skin problems.
This really seems like it should not have been as entertaining as it was. Safiya is very funny and endearingly awkward, and thanks to Tyler I know now not to try to eat any skincare products even if they smell delicious lol (just kidding Tyler, ladies learn this at about age 11 I think)
1) oil-cleanser: takes off makeup gets impurity out from ur skin.
2) water-based cleanser: takes off left over of step one. and just cus double clean is better/recommended. also can get things like dirt that the cleanser doesn’t pick up
3) exfoliating- makes skin soft cleans pores and helps other skin care product absorb
4)toner: removes any left over impurity on skin and help let moisturizer in later step absorb into skin
5)essence: hydrate and aid skin cell turnover or something
6) treatments: targets specific concern in skin like acne
7) sheet mask: doesn’t need to be used everyday ( twice or so a week ) it is like a mask of extra essence on ur face
8) eye cream: helps hydrate skin around ur eyes. also helps prevent certain things like dark circles and puffy
9) moisturizer: seals in moisture to plump ur skin and smooth it
10) SPF: even if ur indoors, sun rays still get to you. SPF is easiest way to prevent premature aging. basically protects skin from UV rays.
*different skin types need different products for their skin concerns. like oily skin and dry skin wouldn’t use same products.*
Might be a lot of steps, but there's a reason Asian don't raisin. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ My grandma is a religious Shiseido skincare user and at 65 she looks amazing. I'm only 21, but I can tell my skin care routine makes a huge difference in the texture and oil-ness of my face. I put my boyfriend on a skin care routine and he loves it too.
Safiya, I know this video is old now, but have you looked into the chemicals in the products you're using? That's a LOT of different products and a lot of chemicals you're putting on your skin and absorbing. Just be aware that if it's bad for you, you may not have an acute reaction, but somewhere down the line in the future you may start to have problems. A lot of chemicals have a chronic effect on the body and by the time you notice something going wrong, your health is already affected. Please be careful! Do some research on the chemicals in the products. Wishing you the best. Love your videos!
Do you do this after you shower?
When you shower should you use soap on your face or wait for the skin routine outside with all the products?
When you are doing the routine should you wait for each product to dry out before applying the next one?
Should the sunscreen be applied at the very end of the routine?
essences are great! they’re pretty common in asian countries, but from what i hear, they’re not really used in the states. my skincare routine consists only of face wash, essence, and moisturiser. using an essence really evened out my skin tone and helped get rid of the dry patches of skin on my face :)
