Korea’s Dewy Skin Trend And How To Achieve It
Dewy skin is undoubtedly Korea’s most popular skin trend, with Koreans favouring glowing, fresh skin over a matte complexion. Here’s everything you need to know about Korea’s dewy skin trend AND how to achieve it.
First things first, let’s clear up one common misconception – dewy does not equal oil. If done right, dewy skin actually helps to minimise the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pores (which is basically the opposite of oily skin).
Koreans believe that dewy skin looks fresher and more radiant, which can help you to look younger.
The key to achieving the dewy skin look is to opt for lightweight layers that plump and brighten the complexion, while softening any imperfections.
STYLE STORY Founder Lauren Lee recommends a skincare routine that focuses on hydration, including Double Cleansing > Toning > Essence > Serum > Moisturiser > Sleeping Mask
Start with a double-cleanse to remove any makeup and sunscreen. An oil cleanser like Subi Bare Skin Balm is perfect, followed by a foaming cleanser like Subi Brightening Powder Cleanser for soft, supple skin.
The next step is to add hydration back into the skin.
Try a hydrating toner like Jelly Ko Dewy Glaze Tonerwhich has dual functions to prep the skin to properly. It will also help absorb your next layers of skincare.
Follow with up with a hydrating serum, to really give the skin the “chok chok” (Korean for hydrated) appearance that defines dewy skin.
d’Alba Truffle Serum gets skin glowing with star ingredient sodium hyaluronate, and works to actually bind moisture to your skin.
To ensure your skin is properly hydrated you'll need a burst of moisture. Jelly Ko Bubble Tea Steam Cream is perfect.
To repair your skin while you sleep, finish with a hydrating jelly textured sleeping mask. Jelly Ko Cherry Blossom Sleeping Mask goes to work while you go to sleep!
To perfect your dewy skin look, Korean makeup products are perfect to add to the mix. Two products that will really help nail Korean dewy skin are BB Cushions.
Start with a skin-perfecting base like Heimish Artless Base. Follow up with a Korean BB Cushion.
BB Cushions, another K-Beauty invention, are perfect for this look, as they give a glossy finish that makes the skin look fresh, soft and plump. STYLE STORY Founder Lauren reports that Skin79 BB Creams are STYLE STORY’s best-selling Korean BB Creams. She recommends patting your BB Cream into the skin rather than rubbing it in to achieve glossy, dewy skin.
