The Korean skincare routine is not only for people having dry skin but also for those people having oily skin. By oily, it means people have whose skin produces extra sebum from se sebaceous glands. There are special products designed for oily skin people having special ingredients that control the excessive sebum production from the oil-producing glands.

The Korean skin care routine for oily skin is divided into the following steps:

Oil Cleanser:

The first step is to double cleanse in which you first use an oil-based cleanser. Don’t be afraid to use an oil cleanser for oily and acne prone skin as it will only remove the oil and dirt from your skin. It will not penetrate into your pores and clog your pores. It will remain on your outer layer of skin.


Take the oil cleanser and massage it on your face with makeup and then take a cotton pad and swipe all your makeup from your eyes and face on the cotton ball removing all the oil and dirt from your face. Try using lavender oil and jojoba oil as a cleanser as it anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory in nature.

Foaming cleanser:

The second step of double cleansing is foaming cleansing. Cleansing twice is recommended by dermatologists because double cleansing removes all the impurities from your skin that can cause any breakouts (acne). Foaming cleansers remove all the water-based impurities from your skin like sweat and dirt which your oil cleansers can’t.

How to do it:

After cleaning your face with oil based cleanser apply foaming cleansers such tea tree cleansers and cleansers which includes lavender in it and apply it to your damp face then massage in circular motion and after that wash it with tepid water.


The third process is exfoliating. There are two types of exfoliators physical and chemical. Exfoliator removes all the dead skin cells from your skin making your skin visibly smooth, brighter and clear. It helps the other products to absorb in your skin and work effectively.

How to do it:

Exfoliate one to two times a week focusing on the areas of your cheeks and nose where you have pores. Gently massage your face in circular motions with your exfoliator and then rinse it with warm water. Try using exfoliators which includes ingredients such as tee tree oil, Butylene Glycol, Cellulose in it which are not abrasive for your skin.


Toning your skin is a very important step because after cleansing and exfoliating your pores gets open and your PH level of skin becomes high so toner is used to close your pores and balance the PH level of your skin.

How to do it:

Take a cotton ball and apply toner on it then gently swipe all across your face and then pat the toner into your skin with your hands. Try buying toners which include ingredients such as natural herbs and Alaskan glacier.


Essence is a lightweight serum type. Essences are the heart of Korean skincare routine as it is used to brighten up your skin and provides complexion. It is used to brighten up your skin, clear your complexion and provide hydration. It is also helpful in cell turnover.

How to do it:

Sprinkle into your hands and then gently pat it on your skin with pressing motion of your hands. Try using essence which includes ginseng and aloe vera or green tea extracts and hyaluronic acid that controls oil production.


After you are done with applying essence. Apply ointment or perforators which contain power ingredients used to treat the special problems of your skin like acne, hyperpigmentation and fine lines.

How to do it:

Apply in the form of drops or gently pat it into your skin where the affected area is. For example tee tree oil, vitamin C. Tee tree oil is used to treat acne and vitamin c is used to treat pigmentation.

Sheet masks:

If essence is the heart of Korean skincare routine then sheet mask is the soul of Korean skincare routine because they penetrate into your skin and absorbs into your skin providing moisture, hydration and all the health your skin needs. They have concentrated essence in it and the key to these sheet mask is that as they are in contact with your skin for a long time so they give all the right moisture and ingredients your skin needs.

How to do it:

Smooth on to your skin, then lie back and relax for 15 to 20 minutes after that remove the masks and pat the extra essence into your skin. Try using a mask containing chamomile extracts and lavender extracts.

Eye creams:

As the eye area is the thinnest area of your face. Eye creams are used to treat dark circles, puffiness and treating fine lines of your skin. They create ingredients that are extra gentle and non-irritating. They also provide hydration to your eyes.

How to do it:

Use your small finger to gently pat your eye cream. Never rub that area and avoid your water line. Try using ingredients such as Bulgarian rose oil, organic Argan oil, and organic aloe vera


The second last step is the moisturizing part. It provides moisture to your skin and hydration. The moisturizer comes in gel, cream and lotion form. It is used to lock all the moisture of your skin and provides hydration.

How to do it:

Gently pat it into your skin and neck. You can use this night and day time every day. Try using products which includes ingredients such as snail mucin, Centella Asiatica, green tea, bamboo, and hyaluronic acid.


It is the last and most important part of your skincare routine. It is the guarding part of your skin care. You should apply sunscreen even if you are in your home for most of the day. Sunscreen protects you from the sun and prevents your skin from premature aging (fine lines). It is to be applied with no diluted products.

How to use it:

Gently pat it into your face and neck. Re-apply throughout the day. Try using sunscreen which includes SPF 50 and titanium zinc oxide in it.
