Check out what’s trending in Korean beauty and how you can incorporate these trends into your skincare routine!
Korean beauty has been taking over the world of the beauty industry for quite a few years now, especially when it comes to makeup and skincare. If you’re interested to find out about what’s going to be trending in 2022, here’s what Belif, a Korean skincare brand, says, “From unique ingredients, inventive techniques to varied formulations, Koreans have got the solution for every skin care needs.”
Let’s take a look at what you can look forward to in terms of the latest Korean beauty trends.
Top Korean Beauty Trends for 2022
#1 Fermented Skincare Products
Fermented foods have been a part of the Korean diet forever. Kimchi is like a staple side dish in Korea. The same theory applies in skincare – using fermented ingredients makes it easier for your skin to absorb the nutrients. This is especially true for sensitive and dry skin types.
Popular fermented ingredients in Korean skincare and beauty products include rice, tea, and kombucha.
The Korean viral skincare trend of Jamsu will keep being popular in 2022 as well!
It’s a fairly simple Korean beauty trend that makes your makeup last longer without smudging. All you need is an ice-cold water bath, and your regular makeup products.

#3 Barrier Strengthening
Another trend that has spilled over from 2021 to 2022. Barrier strengthening is all about improving your skin’s natural protective barrier by using natural ingredients. These ingredients work on boosting natural immunity while also creating a protective layer on the skin.
#4 Hybrid Skincare Routines or Multi-Use Products
Hybrid skincare routines are all about combining multiple steps of a regular skincare routine. This is possible by using K-beauty products that can multitask and give the same level of results as individual products. This is one of the Korean beauty trends that we are most looking forward to as following all the ten steps can become tedious.
#5 Plant Skincare Ingredients
In 2022, you can expect to find more K-beauty products focusing on retinol-based skincare and some unusual plant extracts such as red onion.
This K-beauty trend for 2022 will also help bring customers’ focus on sustainable packaging and the clean beauty movement.
#6 Effective K-Beauty
As per Sarah Oh from Oh My Gloss, K-beauty trends for 2022 will be about efficacy-based skincare products with effective ingredients such as retinol, vitamin C, AHAs, and BHAs. These can target multiple skin concerns such as skin brightening, anti-aging, skin smoothening, and even fewer breakouts.
#7 High Tech Beauty
With Covid-19 restricting movement, the requirement of ar-home beauty tech innovations is steadily rising. Devices like LED masks have become a norm at people’s homes.
