Consider yourself serious about skincare? Then you need all the bells and whistles. While we don’t all have the time – or the budget – for a Korean-inspired 15-step routine, some steps are non-negotiable where healthy, radiant skin is concerned. Not all moisturisers are created equal, and as for whether you can just use a moisturiser instead of an eye cream or a serum, it’s important to realise that each step in well-thought-out beauty plays a unique role.
