How To Achieve Mirror Skin, K-beauty’s Latest Skincare Trend, With Just 3 Basic Steps

Mirror skin is a K-beauty trend where the key feature is well-hydrated skin that looks plump and radiant - to the point where it almost looks reflective, like a mirror. For a point of reference, just think of BLACKPINK’s Rose or Taeyeon of Girl’s Generation. 

Unlike its predecessor glass skin, the point here isn’t to obliterate pores or blemishes and have your face resemble a strobe light. Rather, mirror skin is about achieving a natural and subtle lit-from-within glow.

Sounds like something you’d want? Read on to find out how to get mirror skin with just 3 basic skincare steps! 

#1 Cleanse

If your face feels tight after cleansing, that means the cleanser was way too harsh on your skin. That tightness in your face is a tell-tale sign that your skin is dehydrated, making it difficult for you to achieve mirror skin. Instead, choose a cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils. 

Try: ASIS-TOBE pH Balancing Gel Cleanser, $40.50

Made with natural surfactants, this gel cleanser from dermatology tested and hypoallergenic K-beauty brand ASIS-TOBE leaves no traces of makeup or dirt behind, while remaining gentle on your skin. It even helps to soothe dryness and skin irritation with panthenol and allantoin - ingredients known for their effective moisturising properties.

#2 Tone 

Never skip toner if you’re aiming for mirror skin! Toning is crucial as it primes the skin for product absorption, and you’d want your skin to drink up as much hydrating goodness as possible. 

Try: ASIS-TOBE Hyaluronic Essential Toner, $40.30

Packed with hyaluronic acid, this alcohol-free toner not only primes and hydrates but also restores your skin’s protective barrier. It also contains probiotics to rejuvenate the skin, leaving it feeling super soft and plump.

#3 Moisturise

The last essential skincare step for radiant mirror skin is, of course, moisturiser. It forms a protective layer on your skin, sealing in moisture while nourishing and hydrating at the same time so that your skin stays dewy. 

Try: ASIS-TOBE Oat-Bean Nourishing Cream, $46.30

A favourite of award-winning makeup artist Clarence Lee, who is also well-known for his eco-friendly approach to beauty, this lightweight and non-sticky moisturising barrier cream packs a punch in the hydration department. With nutrients from oat and soybean embryos and skin-soothing ingredients such as panthenol, 5-fold hyaluronic acid and cica, it not only hydrates but also repairs and strengthens your skin’s moisture barrier. This cream is suitable even for those with extremely dry skin or eczema!
