Wondering what’s next in skincare? Our co-founders Sarah and Christine break down the eight most exciting skincare trends inspired by K-beauty.
Trend 1: Fog Mists
These next-generation mists are super-fine, so they hydrate your skin without messing up your makeup.
Try: Make P:rem Safe Me. Relief Moisture Mist, $23
Trend 2: Beauty Sleep

Trend 3: Pads
Treatment pads aren’t only convenient—they’re also infused with powerful ingredients that are really effective.

Trend 4: Double Serum
Cocktail and layer your treatments to treat multiple skin concerns. The key is to listen to how your skin is feeling day-to-day and creating special “recipes” to target your concerns.

Not only is ginger packed with antioxidants, but it also is incredible at brightening complexions and treating hyperpigmentation.
