Glass skin, dolphin skin, yoga skin… every time we hear of a new K-beauty trend, we automatically tend to feel super excited. Why? Well, not only do most of these trends focus on delivering the ultimate glow, but they all create the perfect harmony between makeup and skincare. And who doesn’t want that, right?
The latest K-beauty trend doing the rounds is called ‘mirror skin’. Similar to the previous trends, mirror skin also aims to give you a naturally plump, glowing and dewy finish, which is similar to the reflective surface of the mirror. But instead of using makeup or highlighter, this trend aims to achieve this look using just skincare products. Isn’t that exciting? Scroll down to find what the mirror skin trend is all about, and how to achieve mirror skin in four simple steps using just a few basic skincare products…
Step 01: Start with cleansing your face with a cleansing oil like Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Rinse Off Cleansing Oil to get rid of any excess oils, makeup, dirt and sweat. Follow it up with a gentle, foaming cleanser like the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Brightening Facial Foam to get rid of dirt and impurities
Step 02: Next, exfoliate your face using a gentle face scrub like the St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub & Mask. This will help deep cleanse your pores, eliminate dead skin cells and make your face look a lot clearer and healthier.
Step 03: It is now time to layer your skin with some moisturising products. Start with applying a light layer of a hydrating serum like Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum Brightening Vitamin C Serum. Follow this up with a hydrating moisturiser like the Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser. Seal everything in with a lightweight facial oil like the Dermalogica Phyto Replenishing Oil.
Step 04: Finish your skincare routine by applying a generous layer of the Pond’s Sun Protect Non-Oily Sunscreen SPF 30 and voila! Super glowy, reflective and youthful mirror skin is ready to be flaunted.
If you want a bit of coverage, you can always follow this up with a dewy foundation like the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation SPF 45 and add some blush, mascara and lip gloss to complete your look. But remember to not go overboard and keep things as natural-looking as possible.
