Taking care of our skin used to be so much simpler. All it took was just three steps. Today, as we become more demanding in everything that we do, the basic three-step no longer applies – especially for those looking for more for their skin. So should you apply the lotion or essence first? When do you apply the sunscreen? There are so many products to choose from and thanks to Korean beauty rituals, the skincare steps have gotten even more confusing! But with this guide, we hope to help you clarify the steps once and for all so that you can layer your products like a pro to ensure you reap the optimum benefits from your lotions and potions.
