Caolion Beauty Routine - D-Programme Range

One of the most intimidating things about K-Beauty is the idea of a full length regime. After all, making the time to go through the Korean 10 Step Beauty Routine each and every day may be a little difficult for most. For those of us who need a little extra time to sleep in the morning, we've got good news: Caolion and their more simplified but still wholesome beauty rituals are here to save you from your time woes and leave your skin feeling in tip top shape.


Caolion was founded and developed by Jinyoung Joo, a sensitive-skin bearer who's set on helping those like her to achieve clear, smooth skin. As the first beauty brand in Korea to be marketing natural skincare, Caolion follows the tagline “it’s not about what’s in it. It’s about what’s NOT in it” and features hypoallergenic products that are free from synthetic dyes, fragrances and alcohol. These work to restore the skin’s natural beauty via detoxification and enhancing its youthful radiance, leaving the skin smooth, bright and supple. Caolion's D- Programme range is a fantastic fundamental skincare line if you're looking for a starting point. This range uses Prunus Mume water as its star ingredient that improves skin health and repairs it from the inside out. It covers all the basics and fits most skin types, so everyone can join in on the fun. We've broken down the routine for two different skin types, so here's a quick beauty breakdown on what's what with Caolion's D-Programme!


Basics For All Skin Types

Step 0: Freshly Chitosan Foam Cleanser
A successful skincare routine starts with a clean face. Remove dirt and lingering residue with this gentle cleanser that contains chitosan extract to purify the skin, while hemp and olive oils work for a hydrated complexion. It also exfoliates with particles that melt into the skin as you massage it in to gently remove dead skin cells for skin that's smooth and clean.

How to use: Squeeze out a small amount and gently massage onto damp skin in circular motions to lather up. Once the particles have melted, rinse off with water and pat dry.

 
Step 1: Freshly Toner
Lightweight and gentle, this toner works to refresh your skin and prep it for skincare. It's infused with madecassic acid from centella Asiatica plant extract, aiding in removing any leftover residue on the skin and soothe redness.

How to use: Pump out a small amount onto a cotton pad and gently wipe onto the skin, starting from the center of the face and working your way out. 


Step 4: Relax Cool Eye Serum
Struggling to meet those deadlines? Your tired eyes will thank you for this step! This hydrating and cooling gel absorbs quickly into the delicate eye area without leaving any stickiness behind. With niacinamide, arbutin and shea butter, this product lightens dark circles and depuffs those bags for youthful, bright eyes.

How to use: Squeeze out a small amount and gently tap onto the eye area, being sure not to tug on the delicate skin. 


 
For Oily / Combination Skin Types

Step 2: Freshly Moisture Serum
For oilier skins, it's best to treat the skin to a burst of water-based hydration. This serum is a concentrate containing allantoin that works to calm irritations while keeping the skin looking plump, hydrated and healthy.
How to use: Pump once or twice and apply onto the skin, gently patting in for better absorption.

Step 3: Freshly Moisture Cream
Seal everything in at the end of your routine with this nourishing cream. Its creamy but non-oily formula balances out the oil-to-water balance and leaves the skin feeling moisturized sans any stickiness, making it perfect for both day and night.

How to use: As the last step of your skincare, apply an even layer onto the skin and gently pat in till absorbed. 


For Dry/ Normal / Combination Skin Types

Step 2: Freshly Hydro Serum
This serum is a little thicker and richer than the last one. With a moisturizing formula, this serum works to improve the elasticity of the skin as well as calm and hydrate, perfect for those of us with dry patches.
How to use: Pump once or twice and apply onto the skin, gently patting in for better absorption.

Step 3: Freshly Hydro Cream
For drier skins, it's very important to have a final layer that really seals all that moisture in. After all, the last thing you want is to have tight, flakey skin by midday. This cream contains natural lavender extracts that minimizes redness and gives the skin a luminous glow, just the thing to end your skincare routine.
How to use: As the last step of your skincare, apply an even layer onto the skin and gently pat in till absorbed.
