I Tried A Korean Skin Care Regimen For A Month And My Skin Dramatically Improved Essence Gant

What's up y'all! Essence, beauty editor here at BuzzFeed, and I committed to trying a Korean skin care regimen for a month. I lived my entire teens and twenties with barely any breakouts, but when I hit the big 3-0, my hormones got wacky and my skin started breaking out, ESPECIALLY around the time of my period!

To combat my skin problems, I met with Charlotte Cho, cofounder of Soko Glam — one of the biggest online retailers for Korean beauty products. She's also an esthetician, so I went to her office and had her look at my face to tell me what the heck was going on with my skin and recommend me a full K-beauty (Korean beauty) skin care routine.

I am now a HUGE fan of going to an esthetician or dermatologist after my meeting with Charlotte, by the way. I learned so much about my own skin that I didn't know.
