Asian Beauty Trends That I Can't Wait To Arrive In The US

 The beauty industry tries really hard to keep people interested in its latest products. But when you strip away the fancy new packaging, you quickly realize that things haven’t really changed. Despite the change in branding and the addition of a couple of new buzzwords, underneath it’s still just moisturizer or foundation. Little has actually changed.
For many bloggers, this has led to a sense of lethargy with the beauty world. New products are great, but they also have to be inspiring if they’re going to make an impact. If they’re not inspiring, then they’ll just end up filling your bathroom cupboard next to the rest of your unused products.
What the market in the US needs right now is a bit of a kick up the backside. There needs to be a step change in how we think about makeup and the styles that we use. Perhaps the best place for this change to come is from the East which has developed its own beauty trends in parallel with the West. When these trends arrive - if they arrive - it won’t be a moment too soon. 

Water Exfoliators

Water exfoliators are big business in the East. In Japan, for instance, a water exfoliator is sold every twelve seconds. But why are they so popular? It turns out that they are extremely effective at getting rid of all the stuff that you don’t want on the surface of your skin, like dead skin cells and dirt. But at the same time, they’re also super effective at keeping your skin moist and supple, just like you want it. Western exfoliators still rely on chemicals and ingredients that are too harsh for many skin types, and so those with sensitive skin await the arrival of water exfoliators with baited breath. Water exfoliators are particular good for anybody who has skin conditions, like psoriasis or eczema. There are some homemade exfoliator recipes on

Powdered Sunscreen
Sunscreen has become an important part of the beauty regimen of many women. Some experts and researchers estimate that around 80 percent of the damage done to our skin is the result of sun exposure, not aging. In the west, we’ve tried to include sun protection into our routines, carrying around little travel-size spray bottles in our handbags. But putting sunscreen over the top of makeup is usually a recipe for disaster.

In the East, people are concerned about the effects of the sun too. But they’ve come up with an ingenious solution. It’s called compact sunblock, and instead of coming in the form of a spray, it comes in the form of a powder instead. In places like Japan, going to the bathroom to powder your nose also means applying SPF protection, but not in the way that you’d expect!

Reactive Technology Bubble Masks  
Sites like point out that skin can sometimes look less full than you’d like. But a new Asian skin treatment offers a potential solution. It’s called a “bubble mask, ” and it relies on special chemicals that react with the skin to give it extra radiance. The mask itself is made from oils and active ingredients which produce a gentle reaction that bubbles up all over the face.

Right now, the facemask industry is getting a little stale. There are only so many ways you can repackage clay. Bubble masks have an element of theater which in many ways helps to make them a marketer’s dream. Watching bubbles foam up on your face is fun, like extra-foamy toothpaste. This is one of those skincare products you can imagine being a real event with the girlfriends.
Blurring Foundation 
Eastern women wanted a product that combined sun protection, foundation and moisturizer all in one. And so manufacturers got to work on making the perfect product. The result was a “face blurrer” - a type of product that could be used to conceal blemishes before additional layers of makeup were added.

You can imagine that if such a product were launched in Western countries, it would be big news. Women all over the country are constantly looking for ways to simplify the morning routine and take some of the effort out of applying multiple products to their faces. A simple, one-size-fits-all product would do rather nicely, yet nobody seems to have cottoned onto the fact that this is something women want.

 Splash Spritz Masks
 Spritzs help to refresh the skin, especially on hot days. But splash spritz masks are a little different. Instead of being caked onto your face and left for 20 minutes, a splash mask only lasts a few seconds. It’s also super easy to clean off and doesn’t leave marks on your bedsheets if you miss a bit.
