Starting your skincare journey this 2022 and in need of a detailed guide on how to build your skincare routine, where to start and what products to use? This post is for you!

I shared a simple guide on how to build a basic skincare routine, for beginners or just anyone looking to start a facial routine in 2022. It’s not a 10-step Korean skincare routine but it includes all the essential steps required in a basic routine.
From cleansers to sunscreens, this is the ultimate guide for a simple and effective beginner-friendly skincare routine.

I have also added several product recommendations below, 10 different options for each step! The products are vegan and/or cruelty-free, and mostly Korean skincare (I’m a k-beauty advocate!). Links to shop are included as well and you can find my discount code below✨


You can use my ‘rewards code’ KHAIRAH21 to get some $$ off all orders on Yesstyle 💰, no minimum spending required!

Please use the links below for each product if you’d like to shop any of them. Some of them are affiliates so I get a tiny commission for completed purchases at no cost to you!

BASIC SKINCARE STEPS (With Product Recommendations)
