In 2020, minimalism is on top of our list, which means two-three effective products chosen over 10-12 extra, unnecessary fare. Self-care embedded into beauty is the ritual of skincare complete with candles and feel-good vibes. And then the way we have begun to ignore multiple products that do little for the skin with highly effective products that are not just versatile but are double-duty in every way. This is where the new K-Beauty trend of cream skin begins its journey.
While layering on oils to create ‘glass skin’ was in effect a few years ago, this new trend is about taking it a bit further and creating a creamy, dewy complexion that is more hydrating than ever. The mirror-like shine that was coveted a while ago has paved the path for a more nourished, soft, and smooth look, which can only come from using lotion-like, shine-free, and non-greasy hydrating products.
The idea that this look requires minimal products brings us additional joy. It requires a serum-moisturiser or a toner-serum hybrid that does the job without letting you pile on too much. Hybrids in skincare is a coveted trend if a product has enough power in terms of consistency, texture, and ingredients to give your skin more nourishment while taking care of specific skincare issues. It’d be a boon for working women who want nothing more than saving another 10-minutes of their day. The result? A dewy, silky, and well-moisturised face.
