One of the biggest Korean beauty trends is dewy, radiant skin. There’s even a special term for it – mul-gwang. We can all agree that dewy, glowing skin looks youthful, fresh, and beautiful, so this is something every woman should strive for. The secret is in the hydration! Using all kinds of moisturizing products helps to even out the tone, smooth out and hydrate your skin to perfection. Sheet masks, mists, and special pearl-infused creams are among the top products that will help you achieve the dewy skin effect.
If you’ve ever looked into buying Korean cosmetics, you might have noticed that many products contain snail slime called mucin. That does sound a bit unappetizing and it’s definitely not a vegan ingredient, but if that doesn’t bother you, then go ahead and try a mucin-based cream. Mucin will hydrate your skin, all the while restoring its natural glow and dewiness. It also removes redness and irritation. Some beauticians even recommend it as an anti-ageing treatment.
LED face masks
LED treatment, also known as light therapy, has been all the rage lately in Korea. The technique is not so new, but it was originally developed for astronauts to help them with skin health and tissue repair. Light therapy used to be a treatment you could get only in a beauty salon, but now there are LED devices you can use at home, too. According to experts, different types of LED lights have different effect on human skin and can significantly boost its health, reduce inflammation, and treat breakouts.
