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.
