Unlock Beauty Secrets with K-beauty: Beauty Trends from Past to Present


Let's take a closer look at the evolution of Korean beauty, as it embraces a journey towards a natural and radiant glow. With a focus on achieving transparent and radiant skin, Korea has gained global recognition and popularity through its cutting-edge skincare technologies. Utilize Korea's special and proven techniques to bring radiance and beauty to your skin!


1. History of K-beauty

  • Goryeo Dynasty(918~1392): With a growing emphasis on skincare, the focus was on supplying nutrients and brightening skin tone. Natural cosmetics, utilizing plant-based ingredients sourced from nature, were used to pursue a natural radiance for clear and luminous skin.

  • Joseon Dynasty(1392~1910): As intricate clothing and makeup evolved, sophistication in eyebrow and lip makeup increased. The trend shifted towards brightening the skin tone with cosmetics like Baekseol. Similar to the Goryeo Dynasty, there was a pursuit of skin health, radiance, and a commitment to a naturalistic beauty ideal.

  • Modern Era(1864~1945): Increased cultural exchange with the West resulted in a harmonious blend of Western beauty trends with Korean style. The diversity of beauty products expanded, offering a wide range of choices in cosmetics and skincare products. With the beauty industry's expansion, there was a significant rise in interest in individual beauty, leading to the development of professional beauty services and treatments.

  • Post-1990s: Advancements in science and technology led to the emergence of numerous beauty and skincare products, as well as beauty devices. The increasing diversity emphasized individuality, and the term "K-beauty" emerged alongside global expansions of Korean beauty companies. The beauty landscape continued to evolve, focusing on innovation and personal expression influenced by the Korean wave.

2. Trends of K-skincare

The sustained and widespread interest in domestic cosmetics has driven an increase in demand for skincare lotions, where technological competitiveness is crucial, not just color. This trend has prompted the development of unique and efficient technologies, enhancing the global influence of the 'K-beauty trend' in the market.

  • Layered Skincare Routine: K-skincare emphasizes a step-by-step approach, starting from cleansing to the final cream. It's crucial to sequentially use multiple products to properly care for the skin. This ensures that each product synergizes to maximize its effects, keeping the skin healthy and moisturized.

  • Emphasis on Moisturization: Highlighting the importance of hydration, especially during Korea's dry winter, K-skincare stresses the significance of maintaining moisture. Utilizing products rich in hydration helps keep the skin supple, maintaining a healthy skin barrier.

  • Self-Care for Well-being: K-skincare advocates for a beauty routine that reflects self-love and respect. Recognizing the importance of stress relief and relaxation, it emphasizes the significance of self-care not only for skin health but also for overall physical and psychological wellness.

  • Innovative Technology and Products: Korea stands as a forefront leader in beauty technology innovation. Innovative features such as personalized products and advanced technologies are integrated into K-skincare products, showcasing Korea's commitment to staying at the forefront of beauty trends.

3. Korean Celebrities' Skincare Secrets

Korean celebrities' radiant skin isn't just about good genes; it's the result of dedicated skincare routines and a holistic approach to beauty. By taking inspiration from their practices, you too can embark on a journey towards healthier, glowing skin.

  • Multi-Step Skincare Routine: Korean celebrities are known for their commitment to a multi-step skincare routine. Starting from gentle cleansing to layering various skincare products like toners, essences, serums, and moisturizers, they believe in the power of consistency for maintaining healthy and radiant skin.

  • Hydration is Key: Keeping the skin hydrated is a top priority in the skincare routines of Korean celebrities. They often use hydrating toners and essences to ensure their skin stays moisturized, contributing to a dewy and youthful appearance.

  • Regular Facial Treatments: Korean celebrities incorporate regular facial treatments into their skincare regimen. From professional facials to at-home sheet masks, these treatments help rejuvenate the skin, providing an extra boost for a radiant complexion.

  • Sunscreen Every Day: Sun protection is non-negotiable in their routines. Korean celebrities diligently apply sunscreen every day, rain or shine, to shield their skin from harmful UV rays and prevent premature aging.

  • Adequate Sleep and Stress Management: Beyond products, Korean celebrities emphasize the importance of lifestyle factors. Adequate sleep and stress management play a crucial role in their skincare routines, recognizing the impact of holistic well-being on the skin.
