Ohlolly K-Beauty Routine

Your Freshest Face

Ohlolly offers products for every skin type, from dry to oily to combination. With innovative and beautiful Korean skincare products, taking care of your skin becomes less of a chore and more of a ritual. Below are the five essential steps for morning and night to get your skin glowing.

Morning Routine

Step 1: Cleanse

During the night, oil residue and dead skin cells accumulate on your skin. Cleansing removes this buildup, which is why proper cleansing is a crucial first step in the Korean skincare routine. With clean skin, you have a blank canvas for the following beneficial steps.

Step 2: Tone

Step two is toning. Toning restores your skin’s optimal pH balance and preps skin for the rest of your skincare routine. After toning your skin will feel soothed and ready to absorb the next treatments and their hydrating and nutrient boosting properties.

Step 3: Treat

Step three, treating, is the heart of the Korean skincare routine. This step allows you to target specific skin issues, like hyper-pigmentation or wrinkles, using essences, serums, ampoules and oils. Customize your routine to address your particular skincare needs.

TIP: When layering, start from lightest consistency to thickest.

Step 4: Moisturize

This step seals the deal--moisturizing. Moisturizing not only adds another layer of hydration to your skin, but is also locks in all the beneficial treatments you just applied. If a heavy moisturizer makes your skin too oily, try an emulsion during the day, which has a lighter texture.

Step 5: Protect

Sun protection is a non-negotiable step in Korean Beauty. The sun’s harmful rays damage your skin on a cellular level, so using sun protection is critical to keep your skin healthy and youthful. Remember to apply everyday, even when it’s overcast.

Evening Routine

Step 1: Double Cleanse

During the evening while you’re resting, your skin is working hard to rejuvenate. Take the time to care for your skin in the evening, and you’ll be rewarded with renewed and well-rested skin in the morning. Cleansing in the evening is a two-part step.

First, use an oil-based cleanser, which is the best way to remove oil-based impurities like makeup and excess sebum. Next, follow up with a water-based cleanser, which removes any remaining residue like sweat and dirt.

Step 2: Exfoliate

Exfoliating is essential for glowing skin because it removes uneven, old dead skin cells that clog the pores, which can result in dull, blemished and rough skin. When you exfoliate you uncover the healthy skin barrier protecting the fresh new skin cells underneath. More good news, exfoliating also allows all the moisturizing products to sink deeper into your skin.

Step 3: Tone

Just like in your morning Korean skincare routine, toning resets your skin’s pH and preps your skin to absorb the next skincare treatments to their fullest potential.

Step 4: Treat

As in the morning, use treatments to target specific issues. However, your evening treatments can be different than your morning treatments. This step is all about finding the best treatments for your unique skin.

One to two times a week, give yourself an at-home spa treatment by using a sheet mask. Sheet masking provides a wonderfully concentrated ‘soaked-in’ treatment of essences and serums. Apply these single-use masks for 15-20 minutes for maximum benefits.

Step 5: Moisturize

During the evening, we recommend a thicker moisturize than your morning routine. During the night, your skin has beneficial hours to soak in deep hydration. For even more luxurious hydration, use a sleeping pack two to three times a week either in addition to, or in place of your normal moisturizer. And don’t forget eye cream to keep fine lines, puffiness and wrinkles at bay.
