What is K Beauty?

Everyone has already heard of K-beauty or Korean Skincare, but what does it actually mean? I'll be happy to tell you more about it :)

What is K Beauty?

K Beauty is the umbrella term for skin care products that originate from South Korea. In Korea, there is a philosophy about skin care and the secret to radiant, glowy skin without blemishes. But you have to pay something for that, a K beauty ritual is not just a cleanser and moisturizer and go. No, most Korean beauty rituals consist of at least ten steps. From double cleaning your face to applying various toners, serums and creams.

Not a new trend but a hype!

K Beauty has been around for years, but due to new developments, K beauty has grown into a real hype in recent years. And you don't have to travel far to buy your new skincare must-haves, you just order them at Boozyshop, your trusted makeup and beauty webshop!

Your new skincare ritual?

Because K Beauty contains so many steps, this is often preferred over makeup in Korea. Because yes, if you have flawless skin, you don't need that much makeup to disguise a few things ;-)

After your facial cleansing, the general rule applies at K beauty, start with the thinnest (essence) and end with the thickest product (moisturizer). To give you an idea of a Korean skincare routine, I would like to give you a short summary of all the steps;

  • Eye cleaning.
  • Double cleaning. (First an oil-based cleanser and then one water-based)
  • Exfoliate.
  • toner.
  • Essence.
  • Eye cream.
  • Serum/booster or ampoule.
  • Facial oil or a mask. (You can skip this step if you don't have time for this in the morning)
  • Moisturizer.
  • SPF. (morning only)
