To achieve healthy glowing skin many women are beginning to discover the 10-step Korean skincare routine. Yep, you read that correctly, TEN steps. The regimen, which is widely popular in South Korea, requires an oil cleanser, water-based cleanser, exfoliator, toner, essence, serum, face mask, eye cream, moisturizer and sunscreen. All to be used in that order.
