Korean skin care programs involve the use of many moisturizing products to repair your skin barrier. You can use an oil-based detergent or a water-based detergent to wash your skin of water-based impurities such as sweat and dirt. Lovers of Korean skincare products recognise the technique of "patting" products on the skin.

If you want to avoid stripping off your skin, you can consider replacing one of your cleansing products with a gentle facial scrub every day after exfoliation. Use oil cleaners such as Face Shop Rice Water Cleaning Oil or a gentle circular motion with your fingers to massage a clean foundation or cream. Use a lotion or light moisturizer to prevent your skin from feeling heavy.
