The word K-Beauty is the abbreviation for “Korean beauty,” and it refers to not only Korean beauty products but also to Korean influenced skin care routines, techniques, regimes, and makeup styles. K-Beauty’s unique and fun products (like fruit shaped massage packs) and it’s nature-meets-technology ethos has been huge hit in the U.S.

The core concept of K-Beauty comes from an  individualized skin care regimen. Most people may know about the “double cleaning method” (which refers using two different types of cleansers for a deeper clean), but have you heard about the Korean 10 Step skin care regimen? It may sound extreme, but most Korean women use 7 - 10 steps (or even more) each day to keep their skin from aging and to maintain glowing skin!

Here is an example of Sydney’s 12 Step Skin care routine:

Step 1: Eye and Lip Makeup Remover
Step 2: Cleansing Water
Step 3: Foaming Cream
Step 4: Exfoliator
Step 5: Toner
Step 6: Serum
Step 7: Cream
Step 8: Facial Oil
Step 9: Repairing Balm
Step 10: Facial Mist
Step 11: Spot treatment for acne
Step 12: Sun Protection

Korean makeup products are leading the beauty market. The most well known K-Beauty makeup product is the BB Cream (Blemish Balm or Beauty Balm Cream), a multi-functional makeup cream that covers blemishes and evens out skin tone while moisturizing and protecting  the skin from sun damage. The BB Cream’s second generation version is the CC Cream (Color Correcting Cream) which has similar functions of BB Cream but in addition covers redness or sallowness of the skin. 

According to Mintel, an international market research agency, South Korea reached $13 billion in the beauty market in 2017 and is expected to grow at a 5.8% compound annual growth rate for the next five years, potentially reaching $47.2 billion in 2020. Korean beauty brands’ high responsiveness to trends, constant creative innovations, and globally influential products seem to be leading this international K-Beauty boom. 

“K-Beauty” may sound new, and terms like BB Cream or CC Cream may sound like a secret code, but, once you try K-beauty, the results will have you repeating the routine every day.
