It's time to boost your k-beauty knowledge. Read on for our Oh K's 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 maker-up wipe enough?. or 9 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 IQ 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.

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.

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 sheltie. 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.
