My personal Experience with Korean Skin Care Routine!
So let me give you guys some of the background of my skin, my skin is extremely oily and I have a lot of open pores. Whenever, I go outside, dust particles usually clog my pores and causing more secretion and it results pimples, acne and breakouts on my skin. I was so upset with my skin. To cover my skin I used to apply a lot of makeup products especially drug store one! It made my skin more rough and of course pimples. I used to get hormonal pimples also. I couldn't go outside as my skin reacts very quickly. I used a lot of products for curing skin but none of them worked. I only used a pond's face wash and not more then that. I researched a lot on internet and what I only got was to take care of your skin. So, finally I decided to prepare my skin care routine. I saw a lot of Korean girls have flawless skin which also gave me confidence! I followed Korean skin care routine, there 10 steps. Although, 10 steps were pretty long but they have long-lasting results! I went to market to buy them but unfortunately, I couldn't buy all of them which made me little bit disheartened. But I saw on YouTube there are a lot of natural cures for my skin. So, after a long and hard struggle, I prepared my own skin care routine for my skin. It took one week to prepare it but I enjoyed making it. First I did a patch test before doing any remedy because sometimes you're allergic to it and then your skin gets more worse. I was bit scared as I was trying for the first time but when I saw massive changes on my skin, it gave me confidence and after continuous usage of this routine my skin has been changed tremendously. All my sun tan, pores were gone! I was so happy. I also did a special treatment for my pores which I won't include in this article as continuous use of it has also many side effects. So, I used it only once a week. The remedy was ,I used Fuller's Earth or Mud Mask , I also added rose water and Aloe Vera gel in it. Remember to not to use any kind of steel utensils while handling with mud mask, maybe because the mask won't work but never mind, I loved using it within two weeks my pores shrink and afterwards I didn't get any breakouts on my skin! Now my skin feels so soft! Afterwards when I saw changes on my skin I didn't use the mask as it makes your skin more tight and red. So be careful while using it. You can also steam your face before using this mask. Afterwards, I used all the 10 steps of Korean Skin care. I felt so blessed that I got to know about it. My skin feels no more oily and my skin is now flawless. That is the reason that I am sharing this 10 steps with which is a must try for everyone and for every skin type! I hope you guys will enjoy reading and it's going to be helpful to you.
If you also have faced such situation , like I did then please go ahead and let me know in the comment section! Stay blessed!

The 10 Steps of Natural Korean Skin Care Routine

Step one : Oil based cleansing
Cleansing is the heart of skin care routine.So the Korean skin care routine has two steps for cleansing one is oil based other is water based or foam cleanser.
FOR DRY SKIN:
Oil based cleansing is exceptionally amazing for dry skin type.
Take one tablespoon full organic coconut oil in a bowl and place it in microwave for 10 seconds. Gently massage this oil onto your skin which is going to remove all the dirt and impurities also your face makeup. Afterwards take a clean hot towel and place it onto your skin, in order to remove excess oil.
FOR OILY SKIN:
This cleanser is not good for oily skin type as excess of oil on their skin causes clog pores and eventually pimples and breakouts. I would rather prefer to use your simple regular face wash. My skin type is also oily, so I don't use it instead I use my Ponds spotless beauty facial cleanser, you can also try it, I have given the link below.
Organic Coconut Oil
It is an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and moisturizer. It can work wonders on dry skin making it soft and shiny.
