An emulsion is yet another moisturizer. If you are astounded by the intensity of moisturizers used in the routine, you are not alone. But guess what? Korean beauty gurus believe that several layers of thin moisturizer are better than one thick moisturizer that blocks your pores and gives you greasy skin.

Hence, the layers of thin moisturizers are perfect steps from the Korean 10 step skincare routine in the Middle East climate. Besides, Korean products use ample botanical extracts which benefit your skin in unfathomable ways.

Step ten: Sunscreen is the savior

There’s too much content out there on the benefits of sunscreen, but what is worth noting is that Asian sunscreens offer protection from both UVA and UVB rays.
