A beauty junkie's skin care routine is going viral on Instagram, and it's not because she has 10 steps. Ellie Choi sticks to a simple regimen that even a K-beauty noob can follow, but the result is the same: clear, luminous skin. We can even go as far as calling her skin glassy, which is a huge trend in the beauty capital right now. See proof below:
See what we mean? Lucky for you, we have all the deets for you to be able to cop the same glow!
Simple Micellar Cleansing Wipes, P299, Watsons
Ellie first removes her makeup with gentle cleansing wipes. She uses the US drugstore favorite from Neutrogena, but any sheet that doesn't dry our your skin will be a worthy substitute!

This skin care fan is also in love with double cleansing. Her picks are these gentle formulas from Cetaphil and Kiehl's.
Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3, Rustan's Makati
Since she has sensitive skin, Ellie uses toner to balance its pH level and remove remaining dirt and oil.

Aspire for a healthy kind of glow with proper moisture! She uses either a cream or gel moisturizer for her parched skin. You'd love the Cetaphil cream if you have dry skin; otherwise, a gel formula will suit oily skin.

"For that healthy natural glow, exfoliation is a must," she writes in the post. Use a mild scrub every other day or once a week according to how sensitive your skin is!
Innisfree Sheet Masks, P65 each, Beautymnl
Masks are also a staple in her routine. Once or twice a week, she restores her skin's glow with her favorite sheet masks from Korean brand Innisfree.
That said, Ellie adds that what you eat also affects your skin's health. For her, avoiding oily food, drinking lots of water, and eating more fruits and veggies do the trick.
