Is Korean Skincare Good For Indian Skin? We Find Out

Korean skincare has taken the world by storm, and rightly so. It has infiltrated the global market with its innovative new formulas, customized skincare, cute packaging – and mainly because they actually do work. The philosophy of Korean skincare is to look after your skin and let it glow through instead of piling on layers of makeup.

With the focus being on hydration and nourishment, K-skincare has often been touted as the ultimate skincare routine. But the question then arises: is it suitable for Indian skin? Let’s find out. 

Double Cleanse

Living in India, you and I both know that the pollution levels are off the chart. This, combined with humidity can wreak havoc on the skin. This is where double cleansing saves the day. Using an oil-based cleanser effectively breaks down dirt, pollution and makeup. Follow this up with a light foaming cleanser to get rid of any residual dirt deep in your pores. This gives you a squeaky clean base for all your other skincare products.


Almost all of us have a few issues we want to treat. Things like acne, dullness, oiliness can all be tackled by serums and ampoules which have a high concentration of actives, targeted to solve each of these issues. For example, to combat dryness, you may want to look for hyaluronic acid or niacinamide in your serum. For oily skin, look for a refreshing essence that gently exfoliates, unclogs pores and hydrates. If you want to tackle acne, you might want to pick a serum or spot correcting ampoule with acne-fighting ingredients like tea tree oil, salicylic acid, licorice, green tea or grapefruit extracts .


Indian skin is melanin-rich. Due to this, we usually face issues like dullness, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and environmental damage. This requires special attention - if it is left unchecked, it can increase over time! So, treat these concerns from a young age to prevent them from spreading. Korean skincare specializes in brightening products, which are mild yet effective. If you want to tackle dullness, pick a brightening serum that promises a natural glow. 


A freshly cleansed face does not hold much moisture. It is imperative to supply your skin with some hydration, or it will be a lot more prone to dryness, pigmentation and environmental damage – which are common issues for Indian skin. Plus, your skin will age faster, too. Providing it with moisturization will help you avert these issues. A moisturizer suited to your skin will do wonders for your skin texture and help strengthen your skin barrier. Don’t think you can skip this step if you have oily skin! Use a light, gel moisturizer for best results. When stepping out, make sure you top up your skin’s moisture levels with a lightweight hydrating mist throughout the day!


If you live in India, you already know how brutal the sun can be. UV rays cause a lot of damage to the skin’s barrier, giving rise to issues like hyperpigmentation and even skin cancer. Once you’ve moisturized your skin, slather on a generous amount of sunscreen to protect all exposed skin.

A Dose of Extra Hydration

Skin cell regeneration happens when we sleep. This is the best time to pamper your skin and give it an extra boost of hydration. Use a light sleeping mask that works for your skin concern to give your skin a bit of extra love and care.

The best thing you can do for your skin is to listen to it. Try out a few different products and see what works for you and what kind of routine you can set for yourself. A 10-step routine may be too much for most of us, so make sure you customize your skincare according to what works best for you!
