Koreans introduced the 10-step (sometimes even more) skincare regimen to the world. The said complex routine is apparently the secret to getting cottony-soft complexion a.k.a. "glass skin" or "honey skin" or whatever term you want to call it. However, it seems like this tedious process isn't that "in" anymore.
According to Byrdie's interview with Amore Pacific's research and development team, Korean millennials are into a new skincare trend called "skip-care." It's all about reducing the number of steps in your routine by using multi-tasking products that answer to all your skincare needs.
This actually makes sense because, to be honest, who has the time to slather 10 kinds of skincare products on your face when your body is begging you to fall asleep ASAP? Plus, it's impractical to spend hard-earned money on loads of bottles that you'll probably be too lazy to use at night.
If you want to get in on this minimalist Korean skincare trend, here are hardworking K-beauty finds you can try:
Neogen H2 Dermadeca Serum Spray
You can save time and dresser space with this clever bottle because it acts as a serum and toning face mist in one! It has brightening ingredients that leave your skin dewy and soft, and it has centella asiatica extract that soothes irritation and pimples.
