The Asian Skincare Phenomenon

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard quite a commotion bubbling over the multi-step Asian skincare routine. In some articles it’s marketed as 10 steps and in some it’s even more. It’s upsetting the status quo of Western routines all over (I mean, have you seen Estee Lauder’s Micro Essence? Yeah- SKII did it first). "Asian Beauty" (as it were) has been used by women (and men) all over Asia for centuries. You won't look like this:

...since Asian beauty isn't magic or anything (seriously, it's just regular beauty). But some of the different ingredients and cosmetic compositions of these products will help your skin immensely. Either way, everyone in the West is losing their nanners. So, naturally, we need to chat about the "mysterious" multi-step Asian skincare routine.
