Korean Skincare Routine Step 3: Exfoliation

This third step of the Korean skincare beauty routine is to exfoliate the skin using a chemical or physical exfoliator. This helps to get rid of all the dirt, dead skin cells and gunk from the deeper layers of the skin. It helps to deeply clean the pores by pulling out all the debris and making your skin smoother and brighter for better absorption of the skincare products. If exfoliation is done regularly, the skincare products used tend to absorb in the skin more efficiently.

Note: People with oily/acne-prone skin type can exfoliate two-three times a week (physical exfoliation) or once a week (chemical exfoliation). People with dry/sensitive skin types can perform chemical/physical exfoliation once in eight-ten days. Normal and combination skin need exfoliation once a week.
