When glass skin came into the picture, it gave every matte-perfect look a run for its money. And now, glass skin is being overtaken by cream skin, thanks to K-beauty. That’s the thing about beauty trends—they come and go, outplaying the other. And no, we are not complaining!

All throughout 2019, we saw glass skin dominate the red carpets and runways alike. In fact, we never thought we’d be doing our base makeup in any other way, if not dewy. But, enter cream skin in 2020 and it changed the way we looked at glass skin forever.

What is cream skin?

Cream skin is the all-new K-beauty trend that has taken the beauty world by storm. Cream skin feels gentle on the skin and is achieved by combining together two primary skincare products—toner and moisturiser.

When you mix the absorbing and softening properties of a toner with the hydrating properties of a moisturiser, you achieve cream skin. Combining these two products together will give you a milky, lightweight and refreshing texture, one that will quickly absorb into your skin and make it look brighter and well-hydrated.

What’s the best part about the cream skin trend?

Unlike glass skin that requires you to follow a 10-step skincare routine, cream skin is super simplified. It not only cuts down your skincare routine, but also products. In the midst of our busy and hectic lifestyles, we hardly get the time to follow an elaborate skincare routine religiously. That’s when cream skin can come to the rescue.

Also, you no more have to lug around a zillion products with you on your travels and still get the desired results. A win-win situation, isn’t it?
