#NowTrending: K-Beauty Products You’ll Instantly Go Gaga Over
Korean Beauty has been making major waves in the United States recently with good reason. Korean beauty concepts are cutting edge and intriguing. There is a great focus on preventative care, and ageless beauty that Korean glam seems to excel at and we’re taking notice. If you hear the term “cloudless skin” and wonder what the heck we are talking about, then read on! These are some of the biggest beauty trends that are currently super hot right now in Korea. Get on the trends now so that you will be ready for Fall K-Beauty trends.
Head in the Clouds for Cloudless Skin
Cloudless skin is a K-beauty trend that we are all about. The concept is simple to grasp. Cloudless skin is all about having your skin be hydrated and healthy so that it is clear of any imperfections. Of course our skin will always have little impurities linked to stress, diet and product use, but the idea is to be on a journey to the healthiest skin for you. Check out these two products that can help you achieve cloudless skin:
Whamisa by Glow Studio - Green Tea Moisturizer
This product is lightweight and oil free, so it won’t clog your pores. The green tea helps to reduce inflammation and in turn reduce redness. The product is free of fragrances and harsh chemicals, as well.
ID.AZ- Dermastic Essential Toner
This is a gentle alcohol-free toner that will hydrate and balance skin tone. The product includes aloe, and lavender to soothe your skin to its finest so that you can hop in on the cloudless skin train! Follow up with some moisturizer and you will be good to go!
Don’t Forget the Scalp
Scalp care isn’t really talked about as much as it should be in the United States. The focus seems to be more on hair follicle care (until we get dandruff, that is. Then it’s hello Head N Shoulders!) In Korean beauty, you will notice a great focus on scalp care. Keeping the garden where your roots grow (your scalp) makes total sense.
Reverie CAKE Restorative Scalp Tonic
Check out Reverie, CAKE Resoritive Scalp Tonic to meet your scalp care needs. This product is great for all hair types. The tonic will restore the pH balance of your scalp that will promote healthy hair growth. Once using, you will notice that your hair is balanced, hydrated and smooth.
Doctor Swab- A’pieu Clean Scalp
Another product you can try to get ultimate scalp care is A’pieu Clean Scalp Doctor Swab scalp cleaning wipes. All you have to do is run these swabs along your hairline to reduce any dirt buildup in your hair. You are going to want to choose different sections of your hair to clean. Your scalp will be feeling amazing in no time!
Baby Smooth Gradient Lips
K-Beauty loves the idea of gradient lips because it gives the lip a “smaller, cuter” mouth. You will want to start with a exfoliated lip. Then, take your favorite lipstick and add to the center of your lips. Use a lip brush to sweep the color slightly outward. Then, apply some balm and you’re done!
Charlotte Tilbury - Hot Lips Lipstick in Pale Pretty Pink

Splash Masks for Skin Smoothness
