What Is This New Korean Skincare Trend Called 'Skip-Care'?

PHOTO: istockphoto

Koreans introduced the 10-step (sometimes 14+++) skincare regimen to the world. The said ~*complex*~ routine is apparently the secret to getting cottony-soft complexion, "glass skin," "honey skin," or whatever term you want to call it. However, it seems like this tedious process isn't that *in* anymore.

What is skip-care?

According to Byrdie's interview with Amore Pacific's research and development team, Korean millennials are into a new skincare trend called "skip-care." It's all about reducing the number of steps in your routine by using multi-tasking products that answer all your skincare needs.

This actually makes sense because, TBH, who has the time to slather 10 kinds of skincare products on your face when your body is begging you to fall asleep ASAP? Plus, it's impractical to spend hard-earned money on loads of bottles that you'll probably be too tamad to use at night. 

How can I apply "skip-care" to my skincare routine?

If you want to get in on this minimalist Korean skincare trend, here are hardworking finds (not necessarily a K-beauty product) you can try:
