When we say Asian beauty, do you instantly think, K-Beauty? We thought so. That’s why we’re here to introduce you to the vast world of East Asian skincare which covers much more than just Korea.A CELEBRATION OF NATURAL BEAUTY
Adored around the world due to its use of gentle formulas and natural, calming ingredients, East Asian skincare is built on the philosophy of prevention, patience and gentleness. It’s known for being highly effective and trustworthy and is all about looking beautiful – naturally. East Asian skincare products promote looking after the skin impeccably so you can achieve clear, glowing and natural-looking skin.JAPANESE VS KOREAN SKINCARE
The most popular East Asian skincare products we see in the industry come from Japan and Korea with Japanese skincare focusing more on minimalism and functionality, while Korean skincare takes more of a multi-step approach.
Japanese products are known for using natural, time-honoured ingredients and suggest layering a select number of really good quality products to achieve ultra-soft skin. In essence, Japanese skincare takes a much simpler approach.
On the other end of the skincare spectrum, Korean skincare products are popular due to their innovative, science-backed ingredients and formulas which aim to help you achieve a flawless and youthful complexion. Korean skincare is all about having a meticulous multi-step routine with ‘10-step Korean skincare routine’ being one of the most googled skincare searches in 2022.
Knowing whether to choose Japanese skincare or Korean skincare products depends on the type of complexion you want to achieve. Japanese products will help you achieve soft, matte-looking skin whilst Korean skincare products promote luminous, dewy skin.CALMING INGREDIENTS PASSED DOWN FROM GENERATIONS
In East Asia, looking after your skin is seen as an essential, not a luxury. The products are built on rituals that have been passed through multiple generations and steer away from using harsh, toxic ingredients and instead, use natural and calming compounds to hydrate and protect the skin.
East Asian skincare practices are both unique and intricate and have influenced and inspired the entire beauty industry. Manufacturers continue to honour the age-old practices whilst reimagining the traditional herbs and rituals to produce some of the most innovative and forward-looking formulas in the industry.
