Prev1 of 3

These amazing skin transformations will make you want to start an Asian Beauty routine now. We break it down for you.

What is an Asian Beauty skincare routine? How about what it’s not?

First off, it doesn’t have to be 10 steps long. Nothing in a routine is compulsory – except for maybe sunscreen. If anything, these transformations show you how important it is to customise your skincare routine into something that works for you and your concerns.

Secondly, it doesn’t have to consist of entirely Asian-made products. It’s not about the product, but in their application and approach.

Perhaps it’s safest to say that Asian Beauty skincare is defined by a few core principles: a focus on hydration, the use of multiple layers of products to treat skin concerns, double cleansing,  and of course, the importance of sunscreen. Any product or step that fulfils these aims is good.

With that being said, click through see what happens when you use an Asian Beauty skincare routine for 2 months, 14 months, and 2 years.

Two and a half months isn’t a long time, but Reddit user roxieomg’s skin has definitely improved a lot! Her redness and old scars have faded, and her active blemishes are no longer as angry and inflamed.

As you can see, she uses actives like BHA to treat and prevent acne. And instead of using an astringent, drying toner common in Western anti-acne routines, she opts for a light hydrating hyaluronic acid toner from Hada Labo.  Besides that, she fades her redness and scars with soothing, healing products — she says the propolis products from Toosowong were a ‘game-changer’ in treating her Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH), the dark marks often left behind by blemishes. She also supplements her routine with a sheet mask whenever she feels like it. She plans on battling her PIH even more with the addition of a Vitamin C serum and niacinamide – two ingredients known for their brightening properties.
