A post shared by The Best Natural Korean Beauty (@glowrecipe) on

Have you finally figured out the 10-step Korean skincare regimen and now you’re working on incorporating the 7 Skin Method into your routine? Well, there is a Korean skincare equation that you’re going to want to know about, 1+1.

If you’re concerned that anything involving equations is going to be complicated, don’t worry, because it is literally as easy as one plus one. Christine Chang, the Co-Founder of popular Korean beauty site Glow Recipe, recently wrote about the equation on the Glow Recipe blog and discussed how 1+1 can upgrade your cleansing routine.

The method is for double cleansing and simply involves spending one minute massaging in your oil cleanser then spending another minute working in your foam cleanser.

It might sound ridiculously easy, but think about how much time you really spend massaging in your cleanser. If you were to time yourself, you’d probably be lucky if you hit 20 seconds. You need a bit of extra time so you can work that product into the skin and dislodge dirt, oil and blackheads.

If you’re unconvinced, Christine started using the method after visiting a derm and she wrote that she has noticed results in the mirror. In the post, she likens a fast cleanse to putting soap on dishes but not washing them properly. You can have the best product in the world, but if you don’t apply it properly, it’s not going to do much. You paid good money for those facial cleansers so why not spend 60 seconds making sure they work to your full advantage?

Christine told us, “The 1+1 method is so important because it’s kind of a study in commitment. It’s all about making sure you take the time to truly clean the skin, and has less to do with the products themselves. By taking the time to fully cleanse the skin in this simple way, real results are possible. Just like the value of hard work and commitment to goals,  skincare or otherwise, pays off in real life.”

Test out the 1+1 method for yourself and see if you notice a difference in your complexion.
