Celebrity Routine Reveal: Liah Yoo’s Skincare

We’re excited to see Celebrity Routine Reveal is a hit! So let’s keep it going with another well-known and adored skinfluencer Liah Yoo! We took a peak at her “My simple skincare routine (practice) for combo skin” YouTube video to get some insight on her skincare so we could share and analyze with you! So let’s see what wisdom Liah Yoo’s skincare routine has in store for us.

Liah Yoo’s Skincare Routine

This is a quick overview of Liah Yoo’s AM and PM routines. Routines can change depending on your skin, weather and concerns so we’re only highlighting Liah Yoo’s latest skincare practices! Check out our tips for each routine to improve your own skincare game.

Day Time Routine

Product Highlight

For her morning routine, Liah keeps it nice and simple with only three products! She first uses a cotton pad to wipe away any sebum produced overnight with Laneige Cream Skin and then does another round to let the essence-toner sink into her skin. Then she follows up with a nice and light moisturizer Krave Beauty Oat So Simple Water Cream and then her SPF Beet The Sun.


What we can take away from Liah’s AM routine is that you don’t always need to cleanse. For some skin types, such as sensitive and dry, it’s almost better to skip it in the morning. Moisturizer should always be in your routine, whether light or thick, hydration is key for your skin. And lastly, SPF! Always add an SPF to your routine and use as the last step.

If you’re confused on which moisturizer or sunscreen is right for your skin type, fear no more! We have a full article on different types of moisturizers and sunscreens you can explore.

Night Time Routine

Product Highlight

When it comes to Liah’s PM routine, there’s a few more steps. But overall, the routine is very minimal and simple! She starts off with Farmacy’s Green Clean to wipe makeup and dirt, then double cleanses with Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser. Paying attention to her own skin concerns, she adds in Iope Retinol Expert 0.1% for anti-aging and finishes it all off with the Mugwort Cream from I’m From.


When it comes to double cleansing, it’s not always a necessity (check out more on the double cleansing debate here). But one thing is for sure, keep your products clean! Use a small spoon or freshly cleaned hands to scoop the cleansing balm, or any container based product, from the container. Also, when it comes to retinol make sure you use only at night and follow up with a moisturizer to counteract its drying affect.

  1. I have always loved Liah Yoo’s philosophy on skincare. She’s also not trying too hard to sell her products on her YouTube videos but her purpose is to guide us in our skincare routine.
