Youre probably washing your face wrong
Korean beauty starts with perfect skin.

The Korean beauty industry is booming, particularly with the introduction of multipurpose BB creams to the U.S. market a few years ago. Here in L.A., we’re lucky to have The Face Shop, the Korean one-stop-shopping chain. Here’s what you’ve got to try:

Dual Cleansers It makes sense: apply an oil to remove makeup, then a foaming cleanser to remove the oil. Rice Water Bright Cleansing Light Oil ($11) removes even stubborn eye makeup, then you splash a little water on and rinse. Finish with Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam ($9), then rinse again--ahh, softness.

Dry Scrubbing Once a week, exfoliate with White Jewel Peeling Exfoliant ($11), a thin powder containing micronized pearls. Just rub into dry skin for a couple minutes, and rinse off for clearer, brighter skin.

Mask Sheets These single-use cloths ($2) are the Kryptonite of Korean beauty--they’re infused with fruits and vegetables that speed cell regeneration, prevent blackheads and moisturize. Open your blueberry or honey-infused cotton mask and lie back with it on your face for 10 minutes. Consider it a cat nap excuse.
