Focus on building healthy skin instead of masking with heavy makeup
Korean women understand the importance of being consistent in their skincare routine. On average,they use up to eight products daily. So they don't mind paying for the product as they believe that each product helps their skin achieve that healthy glow in incremental steps. Korean women prefer to use as little makeup as possible so that their healthy skin glow is not masked by heavy makeup.
Meticulous Consumers -> Competition -> Better products at affordable prices
Koreans are some of the most demanding beauty consumers in the world. They are meticulous because they consider every ingredient that goes into the cosmetic product and as to whether it would be beneficial to their skincare regimen. As a result, cosmetic companies in Korea fiercely compete to ensure their products are made with the most natural yet effective ingredients. Competition in the beauty industry also drives down the prices of beauty products and this is especially beneficial to consumers. Another factor that has driven the Korean beauty wave is that Korean women are very open to trying out new products. Innovative products such as BB Cream, CC Cream, and Cushion Foundation all originated from Korea and had become world famous. The rest of the world is looking towards Korea for beauty trends and inspiration to revolutionize beauty practices.
