The 10 Step Korean Skincare Routine with Angel Algovital
This popular 10 step Korean skincare routine includes cleansing, exfoliating, treating, and intensely moisturizing to pamper and nurture your skin before bed, when repair happens the most.
Step 1: Eye Makeup Removal & Oil Cleanser
The first step is about the gentle removal of stubborn products. Always use a makeup remover of the oil-based variety to remove waterproof mascara, eye liner and long lasting lipsticks. This step may only be necessary if wearing certain types of make-up, in particular eye liner or mascara.
Step 2: Cleansing
If you don’t wear a lot of makeup, you might want to go straight to this step. Use gentle, circular motions to remove dirt and makeup. Massaging the face this way increases circulation as well. This step is necessary to thoroughly clean your skin.
We recommend: Angel Algovital Soft Foaming Cleanser – 150ml £25.00
Step 3: Exfoliating
This step is not required on a daily basis but should ideally be done two or three times a month. Exfoliating is essential for removing dead skin cells to allow skin cell renewal to take place.
We recommend: Algovital Soft Peeling Gel (Coming Soon)
Step 4: Toning
The next step in the routine is toning which is typically done using a mist or liquid with cotton pads. Toning prepares the skin for the next steps by softening, moisturizing, and restoring pH balance.
We recommend: Angel Algovital Clear Toning Lotion – 120ml £32.00
Step 5: Essence
The essence step relates to skin regeneration which helps to speed up your cell turnover rate to make skin appear smoother and brighter and feel refreshed and clean.
We recommend: Angel Algovital Pure Essence 50ml £34.00
Step 6: Ampoule/Serum
The ampoule/serum should be highly concentrated. This step is key to targeting any skin care issues like acne, dryness, sensitivity, etc so you’ve got to get the serum that is right for your skin. The ampoule/serum is essentially a more concentrated version of the essence.
We recommend: Algovital Brightening & Antiwrinkle Serum Ampoule (10 x 5ml) £87.00
Step 7: Sheet Masks
The sheet mask can be used twice a week or more (it’s a very gentle type of mask). Your face will feel softer and plumper afterward.

Step 8: Eye Cream
Eye cream should be gently tapped around your eyes to hydrate and protect this sensitive area. This step helps to moisturize and rejuvenate the skin.
Step 9: Moisturizer
Using a moisturizer is an important step which helps to restore the skin and prevent it from becoming dry. Skin will feel softer and remain hydrated for longer.
