How to Do a Korean Skincare Routine for 30s Skin


You might notice skin aging starts to creep in during your late 20s. If you’re not careful, you could spend the first half of your 30s fighting wrinkles and dark spots from neglect in the 20s. The good news is that you can still fix your skin problems with the right routine and products. If you don’t know where to start, then read on to find out how you can create your personalized Korean skincare routine.


Here the ways to create a Korean skincare routine for your 30s skin:


1. Determine your skin type
You need to determine the type of skin you have before you start buying any products or doing anything to your skin. Skipping this part could end up harming your skin instead of helping it. Make sure that you know what your skin needs before you start your personalized Korean skincare routine.

Here are the types of skin:
Normal
Oily
Dry
Combination
Sensitive

If you don’t know what type of skin you have, Korean beauty companies like Tony Moly often create products that can cater to almost all skin types.

2. Check your specific skin problems
Next, you need to pinpoint what your skin needs. One of the most significant considerations is acne-prone skin. Any of the skin types can be prone to acne, given the right conditions. There are dry acne-prone skin, oily acne-prone skin, and sensitive acne-prone skin. Aside from acne, you have to check your face for dark spots and wrinkles. 

The Korean skincare routine is all about clearing your skin to its best form, so, in your 30s, you can expect to do a lot of spot treatments and use problem-specific products. It’s essential to recognize your problems so you can take steps to solve them.

3. Purchase the right products based on your skin type and specific issues

The third step is to choose the appropriate products based on the problems you discovered. If your face is reddish and acne-prone, you should include acids like AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), salicylic acid, or BHA (beta hydroxy acid) to your routine. If you’re looking to fight wrinkles, then add vitamin C or vitamin A with your hydroxy acids. Make sure, though, that you also consider your primary skin type in your selection.

Here are some of the best ingredients based on your skin type:
Normal - natural ingredients avoiding acids or oils
Oily - salicylic acid, clay, retinol
Dry - coconut or olive oil, beeswax, cocoa or shea butter
Combination - argan or jojoba oil, lavender, frankincense
Sensitive - green tea extract, lactic acid, niacinamide

4. Learn how to apply the products in the right order
Now that you’ve gathered the right products, you need to know how to use them. The rule of thumb is to apply from thinnest to thickest. If you’re still confused by what that means, you can check the step-by-step below.

Here is the Korean skincare routine order of application:
Double cleansing with an oil cleanser then water cleanser.
Toning with a non-alcoholic toner.
Prepare with a natural or fermented essence.
Treat with a serum or emulsion.
Protect with eye cream.
Hydrate with cream or moisturizer.
Seal off with sunscreen in the morning or night cream before sleep.

5. Be consistent
The most important thing to remember is that you need to do your routine every day. You have to commit to your skincare regimen and do it. You can only see real results with consistency, discipline, and perseverance. If you can’t do a morning routine, make sure that you consistently do before bedtime, especially if you had to wear makeup that day.

Conclusion
Your 30s skin is different from your teenage and 20s skin, so it’s important to start upgrading your existing care or begin doing it if you haven’t done any in the very beginning. Skincare should be a personal decision, and not just based on a fad or what your friends recommend. The steps mentioned above will help you make a Korean skincare routine that’s perfect for your 30s skin.
