Glass skin, snail mucous and donkey milk have been some of the top Korean trends that emerged in the past few years. No matter where you look in the beauty industry, K beauty is everywhere and has made a significant mark on the industry thanks to its effective and desired results.While we’ve started to head out despite the pandemic with masks, all the hard work and effort we put to ensure our skin looked flawless during the lockdown is no more thanks to problems like maskne. While it might not be easy to follow a 10-step Korean beauty routine once we all start getting back to work, there are a few newer trends to look forward to.
RetinolThe idea of retinol has already caught up with beauty experts all over the world, but this year will only see it become a major part of every skin expert’s routine. K-beauty experts have been swearing by retinol to fight early signs of ageing, so the skin feels and looks healthier. The strong ingredient ensures the skin is free of impurities and is in its best form.
Carrot Seed OilThis skincare ingredient has been in the Korean beauty industry for almost a decade and is only making its way to racks now! It is known for its antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties as it contains Vitamin A. It is perfect for brightening skin, getting rid of dar spots, scars, etc.
Brahmi or Centella AsiaticaThis herb, popularly known as Brahmi in India, is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It is the right ingredient to add to your skincare routine to save yourself from the terrible Maskne. Koreans have been swearing by it and more of them have been adding it to their extensive skincare routine in 2020.
Healthy acidsThe K-beauty industry has been incorporating more acids into their skincare regimen. AHAs and BHAs that are slowly gaining popularity, are gentle enough to exfoliate the skin and work their way through the layers and boosting skin regeneration while also combating early signs of ageing.
BioticsThis year, skincare products that are not only good for the skin but the gut as well will see a huge increase. K-beauty experts today are edging more towards holistic beauty that includes skin, hair and overall health.
