3 Reasons Why You Should Cleanse, Tone & Moisturise

It’s time to boost your k-beauty knowledge. Read on for our 3 glowing reasons why cleansing, toning and moisturising is essential to the Korean skincare routine.

It’s no doubt the full 10-step routine can be time-consuming against our on-the-go lifestyle, especially if you wear makeup day in, day out – just like us!
You’ve probably said to yourself, “isn’t just the one make-up wipe enough?” or “I can’t *see* any makeup on my face, does this mean my face is cleansed?”
While makeup remover and wipes are the easy go-tos, 

it’s easy to forget that sometimes one swipe sometimes isn’t enough to give your skin the cleanse it needs.

So why should we use facial cleanser, toner AND moisturiser? What are the secrets to glowing skin? Here at Oh K!, we have broken down 3 important reasons to why cleansing, toning and moisturising IS essential to healthy, plump skin - plus what ingredients, best moisturisers & products you should look out for!

 3 Reasons Why You Should Cleanse, Tone & Moisturise

1. Dead Skin Cells Build-Up

Did you know, we shed roughly 600,000 particles of skin every hour – that’s enough to make 1.5 pounds of skin a year (yikes)! This means at the end of every day, your face can be towering with dead skin cells, which if not cleaned properly, can cause unwanted spots and breakouts.

We recommend in following an intensive, purifying cleansing routine and opt for ingredients such as Clays, Diatomaceous Earth and Green Tea to dig deep and detox the skin.

Ingredients we recommend:


green tea

What skin care product to use:

Oh K! Chok Chok Cleansing Beads

 

 2.  Pesky Free-Radicals & Blackheads

Toxins, free-radicals, pollution particles and dirt can be a menace to our skin, especially if you live in the city.  While free-radicals can damage the skin by trying to grab extra electron atoms, toxins and pollution can cause blackheads, spots and unwanted breakouts!

We recommend using this 3-hero method to ensure your skin stays glowing and detoxified, while also locking in lost moisture. Perfect for sufferers of combination & oily skin, using the cleanse, tone and moisturise regime every night can do wonders to your skin ✨✨.

What skin care product to use:

Oh K! 3-Step Anti-Pollution Mask & Oh K! Chok Chok Cleansing Balm Stick 

 

3. Control those PH Levels  

We can’t stress how important your skin’s PH levels are. From flakiness, inflammation to dryness, acidic PH levels can leave your skin feeling stressed out! Rises in PH can be caused by pollution, UV light, or even by some of your makeup products on your shelfie. Following this routine daily can restore balance back into your skins PH levels and lock in moisture, keeping your skin glowing and plump for longer.

The Korean 3-step Routine to Cleansing, Toning and Moisturising

STEP 1 – how to cleanse the skin using a facial cleanser

Start your skin care routine with our Chok Chok Oil-Based Cleansing Stick. Simply swipe the stick on your skin and add water to create a foaming, cleansing action. Massage into your skin and spread across cheeks, forehead, nose and chin. Then rinse and lightly towel dry.

Next, grab one of our Chok Chok Cleansing Beads and crush the bead using your fingers into the palm of your hand. Add a drop of water and begin to mix to create a milky, slurry solution. Following the same routine, begin rubbing into your skin, meeting all areas of the face. Once finished, rinse and lightly towel dry.



STEP 2 – how to tone the face using a facial toner

For all skin types, Oh K! Chok Chok Buffing Pads is the best way to tone on-the-go. Simply use the pink side of the pad to exfoliate the skin, followed with the white side as a toner. This step gently exfoliates the skin while also revealing a brighter, dewy glow!

Next, use our Buffing Pads. Jess is using the white side of the buffing pads to tone.



STEP 3 – How to moisturise using a facial moisturiser

Lastly, it’s time to lock-in your routine. Using our Oh K! Chok Chok Illuminating Serum, place one drop on each side the face and massage into the skin. Next, using our Glowing Moisturiser, use one finger amount to top layer the serum, locking in the moisturise and providing plump softness to the skin.

Lastly, glowing moisturiser!

 

Tips to cleansing, toning and moisturising

  • Use this method day or/and night.
  • Opt for sulphate-free ingredients. Sulphate strips the skin from its natural oils, creating irritation and reactions.
  • Use this regime to restore your skin from environmental factors.
  • For oily skin, use oil-based cleansers.
  • For dry skin, stay hydrated and use serums to tone & moisturise.
