Step 2: ๐ŸŒŠWater Cleanser๐ŸŒŠ

This step is part of Phase One (Cleanse).
'Water cleanser' seems like a misnomer,
but it means that it targets water-soluble particles (dirt & sweat)
that are on your skin and in your pores instead of oil cleansers
that target oil soluble particles (like makeup & sebum).

They tend to come in 3 types:
foam cleansers, gel cleansers, and cleansing waters.

Foam cleansers: Just like it sounds, this cleanser uses typically
uses suds to wash the face for sebum control (good for oily skin).
Gel cleansers: They function essentially the same as foam cleansers,
however, they usually are more hydrating for dry skin.
Cleansing waters: They are applied using cotton rounds and
don't need to be rinsed off, good for makeup removal.

Take a small size dollop ๐Ÿ’ง,
rub it together with your fingers for a couple of seconds,
gently massage your face upwards with small GENTLE circles ๐Ÿ”„,
and ๐Ÿšฟ rinse with lukewarm water. Do NOT rub your skin๐Ÿ™…
just gently pat dry ๐Ÿ’† with a soft, non-abrasive cloth.

Gua sha does not originate from Korea, however,
it is an invigorating facial massage and great to use in
combination with your K-beauty routine!

Here are some of my product recommendations,
ones that I have personally purchased and tried.
I have combo (oily/dry) but these items are also
compatible with other skin types. As always, ๐Ÿ›ฃ๏ธ Y.M.M.V. ๐Ÿ›ฃ๏ธ
(your mileage may vary), so always patch-test new products!

Step 2: Water Cleansers

[Neogen] Real Fresh Foam Green Tea
This one is great for calming your sensitive
or red skin down while giving a gentle wash.
It smells lightly earthy like ๐Ÿตgreen tea๐Ÿต
and it's always fun to shake the bottle to get
the โ˜๏ธfoamโ˜๏ธ action going.

COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser
Mildly acidic but still โฌ‡๏ธ low pHโฌ‡๏ธ ,
this cleanser is a great ๐ŸŒ…morning-after๐ŸŒ… essential!
If I don't wear makeup or am โœˆ๏ธtravelingโœˆ๏ธ,
then this works great as my singular
cleanser for the AM routine.
I prefer doing my daily light chemical
exfoliation with this one since it contains ๐ŸงชBHA๐Ÿงช.
