Step 2: the Foaming Cleanser 

The second of the 10 steps of the Korean Skincare Routine involves water-based cleansing, meaning all those products that ensure optimal cleansing for your face. The most well-known are obviously the foaming cleansers, which, as you can guess from the name, are characterized by the peculiar foamy texture, light and soft, extremely gentle on the skin. As every K-Beauty lover knows, the foaming cleanser is an essential step in any respectable skincare routine! Whether used alone or as the second step of the Korean Skincare in combination with the oil cleanser for a perfect double cleansing, the foaming cleanser is a product you can no longer do without! Regular use of a foam cleanser not only helps remove make-up residues and skin impurities that oily cleansing failed to completely eliminate, but also makes your skin bright and nourished, deeply cleaning every pore! 

Before moving on, let's leave behind the old beliefs: unlike past facial cleansing foam, Korean foam cleanser is not aggressive at all, but rather essential for cleansing and hydrating the skin! As always, it's important to know your skin and choose products that best suit its specific needs! Korean cosmetics offer a wide range of facial cleansing foams, ensuring that no skin type is left out. From oily and/or acne-prone to dry and sensitive, every skin type can rely on the foaming cleanser it needs! 


What is a Foaming Cleanser and How Does it Work on the Skin? 

As you may have gathered by now, there are foaming cleansers tailored to various skin types, but that's not all! These Korean cosmetics also stand out for their various textures: in short, they cater to everyone! However, whether it's a gel formulaliquid or resembles a mousse, they have one thing in common: as soon as they come into contact with water, they change consistency and create a light and soft foam! This happens because of the particular formulation rich in surfactants that every foaming cleanser possesses. But let's delve deeper! All facial cleansing foams are composed of a lipophilic component and a hydrophilic component that combine with each other. If the former can dissolve makeup, excess sebum and other debris deposited on the skin, the latter activates upon contact with water and completely removes dirt, leaving the skin perfectly cleansed and purified. That's why in the Korean routine, cleansing is done in two steps, which act specifically on the skin. 


How to Do the Second Step of the Korean Skincare Routine 

Here are a few simple steps to integrate the foaming cleanser into your Korean Skincare Routine: 

  1. Moisten your face with water neither too cold nor too hot. 
  2. Apply the foaming cleanser to your skin and massage with small circular movements. 
  3. Rinse thoroughly and pat your face dry without rubbing.  

There you go, all done! Easy, right? It's no wonder why foaming cleansers are considered by everyone the starting point when approaching the Korean Skincare! If, however, you want to experience the famous Korean double cleansingthat has conquered the world in recent years, as a first step apply to your strictly dry face an oil cleanserGently massage for about 30 seconds and only then add some water to rinse. Now you can proceed with the foaming cleanser following the above steps: your skin will finally be clean and free from sebum and other impurities!


When to Use Korean Foaming Cleanser 

The foaming cleanser is perfect to use both in the evening and in the morning. In the evening, it is advisable to use it in combination with an oily cleanser, following the tradition of K Beauty and double cleansing, to remove sebum and dirt that has built up on the skin during the day. In the morning, however, it can also be used alone, to purify pores and prepare the skin for the subsequent steps of the Korean Skincare. A simple wash with water may not be enough to clean the skin, as overnight the skin regenerates, eliminating toxins and dead cells that can only be removed through adequate cleansing.
