How the 10-Step Korean Skin Care Routine Cleared Up My Acne in Two Months

When Zoe, a 16-year-old high school student, received Soko Glam’s 10-Step Korean Skin Care Routine Set for Oily Skin as a Christmas gift last year, it transformed her skin care routine and her skin for good. Below, she tells us how her persistent acne cleared up and her complexion went from dry and breakout-prone to glowing and smooth in just two months.

Before getting on board with the 10-step Korean skin care routine, Zoe’s regimen consisted solely of moisturizer and an exfoliating scrub. “My skin was dry and I had pimples and blackheads all over my face,” she said. “My biggest skin concern was acne.”

After seeing influencers rave about the Korean skin care products they used and the impeccable results that came from them, Zoe decided to try K-beauty for herself. Right away, the 10-Step Korean Skin Care Routine Set (Oily Skin Type) from Soko Glam began improving her skin.

“I noticed immediate results,” she said. After only one night, her skin was already beginning to become more “radiant.” By the end of one month, her skin was less dry and her persistent acne was clearing up.

“In two months, I saw glowy skin, no acne, no dryness, and even a scar on my face became less red,” she said.

So what exactly is included in the 10-Step kit that worked wonders for Zoe’s skin?

The oily skin type set contains an oil-based cleanser and a water-based cleanser, an exfoliator, a single-use sheet mask, a hydrating toner, an essence, a serum, an eye cream, a moisturizer, and sunscreen – all specifically curated to target oily skin problems and improve the appearance of pores.

Though she uses the 10-Step Kit in its entirety, her favorite products include the d’Alba Piedmont No-Sebum Mild Gel Cleanser, which thoroughly cleans pores and gently exfoliates dead skin cells, the Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum, which replenishes moisture and calms redness, and the Neogen Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser, that cleans pores and eliminates blackheads, reducing acne and excess sebum.

In addition to using the 10-Step kit every night, Zoe applies sunscreen every morning and a Korean sheet mask at least twice a week to maintain her glowing and clear skin. “I’ve had no flare-ups since I’ve been consistent,” she says.
