If you’ve been keeping up with Korean beauty trends over the years, you’ve probably heard of glass skin – and the gazillion steps needed to achieve it. Made famous in 2018 by K-stars such as Song Hye-kyo and Lee Young-ae, glass skin is poreless, even-toned skin that has a luminous radiant glow – just like, well, glass.
Fast forward 1 year later and we had a new up-and-coming beauty trend: mochi skin. With brands such as RE:ERTH coming up with products specially targeted to help skincare enthusiasts achieve mochi skin, the trend undoubtedly took off and became a hit. Mochi skin is supple, bouncy skin that resembles the super soft Japanese dessert mochi.
Well, since it’s 2020, we expected nothing less when we heard about the new k-beauty buzz that’s been going around: cream skin. Cream skin seems to be easier to achieve than its glassy and mochi-like predecessors, since a complicated 10-step skincare routine isn’t needed this time. Instead, a good moisturiser paired with a hardworking serum are all you really need to get on board with this new trend. The result is super soft, dewy skin that isn’t too shiny. The big bonus is definitely that it doesn’t require a truckload of products or a lengthy nighttime routine to achieve.
Here are some products that’ll help you achieve cream skin like Korean actress Bae Suzy – you’ll soon realise what the hype is all about.
