K-Beauty For The Clean Girl Aesthetic
It’s officially 2023 and while we're excited to leave a lot behind from 2022 one trend we won't be abandoning is the Clean Girl Aesthetic.
This was one of the biggest beauty trends in 2022 and we know it’s going dominate this year too.
To break it down for you, the Clean Girl Aesthetic focusses on glowing, dewy skin, with minimal makeup. Think Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber (who, coincidentally is also a fan of donut skin).
So how do you get the clean girl aesthetic?
Well, it’s ALL about a killer skincare routine. Luckily, we got you covered.
Here are some of our favorite K-Beauty For The Clean Girl Aesthetic.
It's 2023 and if you aren’t removing your makeup with a cleansing balm or oil then you need to start now.
Harsh makeup removes, devices and stripping wipes are out.
Gently removing SPF, makeup, and sebum with hydrating ingredients are in.
Luckily this cleansing balm by Subi has everything you need. Not only is it packed with incredible ingredients like Vitamin E and Lemon Myrtle leaf extract, it's also perfect to keep your skin hydrated and clean.
Powder to foam cleansers are a great option for those who are always on the go.
The waterless formulation means powder washes have an extended shelf life and can be taken on planes without worry about TSA restrictions (Win!)
Subi's powder cleanser is packed with Centella Asiatica, Ceramides, and Licorice which work together to clean and brighten the skin without leaving it feeling dry.
Want to grab both together for less? Try the Double Cleansing Duo.
Exfoliation is a key step to clear skin and improves the absorption of serums, ampoules and creams. The key is to find the right exfoliator for your skin type.

For Oily / Acne Prone and Combination Skin - Jelly Ko Cinnamon Toast Sugar Scrub Foam
This versatile sugar scrub by Korean beauty brand Jelly Ko allows you to tailor your cleanse as you need. If you are looking for more exfoliation then leave the sugar crystals in the foam.
For a regular cleanse, lather your hands together first to dissolve the sugar crystals. Once the foam is smooth use it like a regular cleanser for a gentler, hydrating cleanse.
Unlike typical western toners, which tend to be more astringent or exfoliating, K-Beauty toners often focus on hydration
