Industry insiders and skincare enthusiasts are nothing short of obsessed with Korean skincare. Hailing the skincare routine as over a decade ahead of western skincare routines. With the sky-high standards of Korean consumers, the Korean beauty industry has risen to the challenge. But why the explosion in popularity in the West? In this article, the Seoul Mamas team will share a few reasons why Korean skincare became a worldwide phenomenon.

Innovation is Crucial to Success

From BB cream to the cushion compact to sheet masks, Korea has become an innovation leader in the beauty industry, with Seoul as the beauty industry Mecca. The city boasts over 100 beauty stores packed into 8 adjacent city blocks. Manufacturing and beauty innovation are incredibly competitive. To rise above the rest, exceptional innovation is required. Unique methods and ingredients are always around the corner, and the best of the best quickly make their way across the globe.

Western Skincare is a Decade Behind

In the West, a standard skincare routine consists of 3 stages: cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize. In addition, much of the Western beauty industry is focused on makeup to hide blemishes. The Korean mindset regarding skincare is much more focused on getting to the root of the problem, and improving the health and beauty of their skin. What many have dubbed the K-Beauty skincare routine includes up to 10 steps. The increased focus on the health and wellness of the skin has resulted in innovative products designed to treat skin damage and improve your skin’s ability to regenerate itself.

Dedication to Improvement Over Time

While it is true you will instantly see results with a Korean sheet mask, much of the Korean beauty industry is focused on long-term improvement and a dedication to your regimen. Your skin benefits from good habits over time, stick to your skincare routine and you will reap the benefits in the long run.
