The 4 K-beauty trends to try in 2021

From snail mucin, bee venom to glass skin, these are just some of the key beauty trends to have emerged from South Korea. But like all trends, what was big last year is not as popular this year. Now people are making way to a more minimalist approach, breaking away from their strict 10 step routine and giving way to more science-backed formulas. So here are 4 of the key K-beauty trends of 2021:

Acid Layering
More brands have been incorporating acids into their product, but it’s all about the gentle approach that focuses on striking the balance: Too much can irritate and aggravate your skin, too little will yield no results, so products with an optimal amount is key.

Carrot seed oil
This skincare ingredient has been used for over 10 years in the K-beauty world, buts it’s only now that it’s getting the attention it deserves. Packed with vitamin A and carrots are a great antioxidant. It’s antiaging, antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory, so it’s ideal for anyone looking for brightening effects.

Cica is huge right now. With everyone dealing with the stress of the pandemic and maskne, the focus is on soothing irritated, angry skin.

Clean and Natural
More brands are developing products free of chemical additives, artificial ingredients, and fragrance. Products are becoming even more gentle with effective plant-based ingredients, and many brands are becoming vegan as well.
