Minimalist skincare routine

Posted by Keilla Kalli on

The Korean skincare routine or k-beauty is gaining more and more attention and followers as  Korean skin is famous for being beautiful and well treated and for the quality of the products. A big difference in the Korean routine are the famous 10 steps, which have generated a lot of controversy, due to the amount of products applied to the skin and can discourage people who are just starting out and are unable to keep this routine viable. 

In the article Korean Routine in the Bykorea Concept , you will find the 5 steps that we consider essential for satisfactory results.

Today we're going to talk about the minimalist routine, which involves just 3 steps: cleansing, hydration and sun protection.  Ideal for those who are just starting out and want to find out if they will have the discipline to maintain a skincare routine, for those who are traveling and want to take only the essentials, or even for those who still cannot invest in many products, but know that their face needs a special care :)

Cleanse, hydrate and protect!


Cleaning will always be the first step of any routine. Removing excess sebum, substances, impurities and dead cells is essential before applying any product. In the traditional 5-step routine you must perform the double cleansig, with two cleansers, in the minimalist you can use just one.

A great option is Banila Co's Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Vita Pumpkin , a cleanser in the form of a balm that removes all types of impurities, even heavy makeup.


In addition to promoting deep cleansing, without the need for secondary cleansing, it contains pumpkin extract, which leaves the skin vibrant. Can be used on all skin types, including sensitive skin.


You don't need to have dry skin to hydrate your skin. In fact, hydration is recommended for all skin types. The important thing at this stage is to choose the right product, as for those with oily or combination skin, the “wrong moisturizer” can make the skin even more oily.


Etude House's Wonder Pore Cream is a perfect moisturizer for oily skin, acting to control sebaceous secretion.

Etude House's Moistfull Collagen Cream intensely hydrates the skin, keeping it moist for more than 12 hours.



Mugwort Cream by I'm From is a cream formulated with 73.55% Artemisia Extract. The refreshing, gentle formula quickly absorbs into the skin without a sticky feeling to restore skin to its original softness and health.



Innisfree's Green Tea Seed Cream is a gentle, fast-absorbing moisturizing cream. Leaves skin soft and hydrated, without stickiness.



Essential for any age and skin type. This step is essential, as the sun is one of the skin's main villains, it can cause blemishes, irritation, aging and even skin cancer. Just like moisturizer, it must be chosen according to your skin type, to avoid an uncomfortable sensation and excessive sebum production or dry skin.



If you have oily skin, A'pieu's Pure Block Daily Sun Cream is a great choice as it doesn't have a sticky finish, leaving your skin matte throughout the day.

If you have dry skin, you can opt for Banila Co's Hello Sunny Essence Sun Stick , a sunscreen with moisturizing essences in a stick. 



For combination skin, an option is Soonjung Mild Defense Sun Cream from Etude House , with low pH, natural and hypoallergenic ingredients.



For normal skin we have Sunprise Mild Airy Finish from Etude House , our best seller.
