Koreans introduced the 10-step (sometimes 14+++) skincare regimen to the world. The said complex routine is apparently the secret to getting cottony-soft complexion, "glass skin," and "honey skin"—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, Koreans 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, you probably don't have time slather 10 kinds of skincare products on your face when your body is begging you to sleep.
If you want to get in on this minimalist trend, here are hardworking K-beauty finds you can try:
