GOOD SKIN, GOOD DAYS

GOOD SKIN, GOOD DAYS

The best of Korean skincare into a simple routine you can commit to.

If you haven’t read and watched over countless multi-10-step K-beauty articles by now, a summed up version goes like this: 

  • Step One: Cream Cleanser
  • Step Two: Foam Cleanser
  • Step Three: Exfoliaton
  • Step Four: Toner
  • Step Five: Essence
  • Step Six: Serum, Boosters or Ampoule Treatments
  • Step Seven: Mask
  • Step Eight: Eye Cream
  • Step Nine: Face Cream
  • Step Ten: SPF

It's intimidating and exhausting at first glance—and some experts have even said it's not worth it. So we were super excited to stumble upon Panacea Skincare, a collection includes the three essential products you need for healthy, glowing skin—nothing more, nothing less. You can let out a sigh of relief. Let's break this simplified routine down.

  • Step One: Cleanse using Daily Facial Cleanser. This sulfate-free, foaming cleanser contains a gentle cleansing agent (derived from coconut oil) to draw out impurities and rinse off without stripping skin. Our Moisture Shield Complex (includes Hyaluronic Acid) ensures your skin stays hydrated and preps the skin for the Daily Facial Moisturizer.
  • Step Two: Moisturize using Daily Facial Moisturizer. This unique, lightweight moisturizer is made with a concentrated formula to replenish the water balance in your skin. Our Moisture Shield Complex, along with boosts of botanicals, hydrate and nourish the skin. The moisturizer is quickly absorbed, leaving skin soft and smooth, while also priming it for the Daily Facial SPF.
  • Step Three: Apply Daily Facial SPF. This lightweight sunscreen contains SPF 25 and broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, shielding you against harmful environmental factors. Virtually scentless, our SPF can be used under makeup and leaves your skin with a non-greasy finish.

After all, what we should take from Korean-skin mind-set is that it's important to take time to take care of yourself. Whether it be 10 steps, or 3—a dewy, moist glow can be achieved by simple products that do what they are supposed to do. We're happy to finally find a brand that a cuts through the noise.
