Keep Your Summer Skin Glowing

Ah, the great British summer, heatwave one moment, downpours the next. As the sun once again becomes a stranger, many of us at allbeauty are ruing not making the most of that warm weather while it lasted. Whether you were lucky enough to get sun-kissed, or missed the narrow window, it isn’t too late to create, or maintain, a bronzed body throughout Autumn. 

While there’s no argument that pale skin can look absolutely gorgeous (we’re looking at you Audrey Hepburn), it’s no secret that many of us feel more radiant with that summertime glow. So, whether you’re a tanning aficionado or just dipping your toe in the water, here are our top-rated essentials for getting that holiday look, year-round.

Explore Korean Beauty & Discover Healthy, Flawless Skin

Here at allbeauty we like to stay ahead of the beauty curve, keeping you up to date with all of the latest trends. Recently there has been a beauty phenomenon that has taken over on social media.  And this is not just a trend that will come and go, it is truly here to stay. Let us tell you what that special #Kbeauty hashtag is all about.


What is K-Beauty?

We love the concept of K-Beauty so much. It involves assessing your beauty needs and amending your traditional beauty routine possibly giving it a major, much needed shake-up to mirror the Korean way of beautifying. 

The K-Beauty way addresses your individual skincare needs, this could mean up to twelve steps of beauty magic – but if your skin doesn’t need it then it could mean just one. It all depends on what you are starting with – and prevention is better than cure right? That’s the K-Beauty way. Ultimately who wants to be putting in the effort of cleansing, toning and moisturising if it is not having an awesome and impactful effect on our skin inside and out? The K-Beauty way of doing things means maximum results and a truly remarkable skincare look, making the beauty regime efforts thoroughly worth it. 


So why do we love K-Beauty so much? 

Our British culture has shifted from focusing on tanning to realising the harmful effects of too much sun and the K-Beauty concept is a perfect, natural progression for beauty focused folks.  K-Beauty allows you to target a different approach of health and hydration. Protection from the inside out and a reduction in pigment giving a smooth, flawless look. A world away from the savage sun.  We admire the way K-Beauty focuses on making your skin so nourished and glowing that products needed to cover it are minimal, whereas the traditional British approach has been heavy makeup usage on top of the skin. K-Beauty creates the perfect flawless canvas.
