By now you’ve learned about the Korean glass skin trend and the Korean honey skin trend, but what if we told you there’s another K-beauty trend making waves these day? We’re talking about cloudless skin. Keep reading to learn how to create the best skin care regimen for cloudless skin, as well as the skin care products, such as moisturizer with SPF, you should use so that you can take this Korean beauty trend for a spin.
What Is Cloudless Skin?
Think of a child’s skin—it looks close to perfect and practically poreless. That’s what cloudless skin is all about. While creating the appearance of perfect, poreless skin may not be possible, there are steps you can take as part of a cloudless skin care routine to help address the appearance of skin care concerns such as dark spots and fine lines and wrinkles for a more beautiful-looking complexion.
How to Try the Cloudless Skin Trend
Ready to revamp your skin care routine to give cloudless skin a go? Follow our skin care tips below.
1. Never skip a cleanse
This is probably a no brainer for you at this point, but it’s still worth repeating. Any skin care trend you’re going to see these days will have the foresight to include twice-a-day cleansing to help rid the surface of your skin of dirt, makeup, and impurities. Want to learn how to cleanse your face the right way? We've got you covered! Take the time to get a deep clean by using the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser. Squeeze a small amount of your facial cleanser of choice into your hands, then gently massage it over your face and rinse it off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
2. Moisturize for deep hydration
After you’re done cleansing, your next step should be applying moisturizer. The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, and L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin are formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration—meaning they’re ideal for your pursuit of cloudless skin.
3. Correct the appearance of imperfections
Cloudless skin is all about looking flawless. When it comes to trying to achieve the look of cloudless skin, reach for skin care products and makeup that can help to reduce the appearance of these skin concerns, whether with continued use over time or temporarily concealing. Think: the L’Oréal Paris Youth Code™ Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum Corrector to help minimize the look of dark spots with continued use over time and the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Color Correcting Crayons to temporarily disguise dark spots, dark circles, or redness.
4. Make the most of your beauty sleep
Consider adding the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Intensive Overnight Face Mask to your nightly skin care routine. It not only hydrates but helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with continued use over time. All you have to do is apply it post-cleansing and leave it on—no rinsing off like traditional face masks!
5. Calm stressed skin with a face mask
Nobody likes to feel stressed—including your skin. So, try using the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask, which gently cleanses stressed areas. Twice a week, apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
6. Exfoliate regularly
You can’t sport cloudless skin if you have dead skin cell buildup on the surface of your skin that’s making your complexion look dull. To help ensure that your skin feels smooth and looks radiant, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub three times a week. Apply the face scrub to skin that’s dry, then massage it into your skin with wet hands. Finally, rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
7. Take sun protection seriously
In the morning, it’s important to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen or a moisturizer with SPF, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30, as directed. When you spend prolonged periods of time in the sun, this can lead to visible signs of aging, like dark spots and fine lines and wrinkles, appearing down the road. In addition to wearing sunscreen, you should also limit your amount of time in the sun (especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., which are the sun’s peak hours), seek shade, and cover up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.
8. Stick to the best skin care regimen for cloudless skin
Last but not least, if you want your skin to look cloudless, it’s important to find a skin care routine that works and to stick with it.
