Looking to up your skincare game? K Beauty is revolutionizing the industry.

HOLR is breaking down the top-trending K Beauty skincare trends that have been making waves recently and dishing all the details on how to elevate your skincare routine.

face mask


This tried and true trend involves layering your skincare masks to achieve maximum results! TikToker @alessa.miki breaks down the “coating” method in this video, where she goes into detail about how to layer different masks over one another. This helps to optimize benefits and is often used to achieve glass-like skin. For example, in Alessa’s video, she opts to layer an LED mask for collagen, then an ABA/BHA Peel for exfoliation. Afterward, she adds a hydrating serum. She then finishes off her routine with a modeling mask to seal everything in. We love that this helps promote dewy, ultra-hydrated skin, so this trend is definitely one to try!

The skincare diet

AKA simplifying your skincare routine to help decrease skin irritation and sensitivity. This trend involves cutting down your skincare routine to three holy grail products: cleanser, moisturizer, and SPF. It’s super important to cleanse your skin but double cleansing can work wonders! Follow up with a hydrating moisturizer and finish off with SPF to protect your skin during all hours of the day.

This skincare facial massage tool is a must-have for any skincare routine. It helps with lymphatic drainage and can be used weekly to promote blood circulation and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. This is the perfect self-care tool to incorporate into your skincare routine if you’re looking to de-stress and relieve any facial tension. This one from Bloom Balance is a must-have when it comes to sculpting your skin.


This trend refers to slathering your face in Vaseline or petroleum jelly, then going to sleep with an ultra-hydrated, slimy face- similar to that of a slug.  This is the final step in your nightly skincare and will help promote super dewy skin when you wake up in the AM. Simply rinse it off when you wake up the next morning and voila!

This K Beauty skincare tool made waves on social media recently after one of the actresses from a popular K Drama used it. This multifunctioning lifting device is known to rejuvenate the skin. It also helps firm skin, reduce wrinkles and treat acne. This is because it’s an all-in-one tool that is the ultimate facial massager!

Snail Mucin

Snai mucin is a rising trend in the K Beauty industry and has a ton of great skincare benefits. It includes properties such as glycolic acid and glycoprotein enzymes and can help boost collagen growth as well as hydrate the skin. This is a must-try if you are looking to rejuvenate and renew your skin. However, although they can be used on all skin types, since these products are super moisturizing, they are best suited for dry skin.

silver spoon

Depuff with a spoon

This trend involves placing a spoon in the fridge or freezer overnight and using it on oyur face the next morning to de-puff. Place the spoon on areas around the face and use it to gently massage around the eyes, avoiding placing the spoon directly on the eyelid. TikToker @ibby.mo discusses this trend in detail and how the music group Red Velvet uses this trick!

Sheet Masks

Sheet masks are a super quick and easy way to hydrate your skin at home or on the go! Popular music groups like BTS love using sheet masks to promote glowing, healthy-looking skin, as mentioned in another one of @ibby.mo TikTok videos. Plus, they’re typically an affordable skincare product to incorporate into your routine. When shopping, be sure to choose one with properties that will help meet your skin’s needs!
