How can I achieve the youthful glowing look often seen in Asian pop culture?

I've found that right after I use Korean sheet masks, my skin revitalizes and instantly glows. However, the glow doesn't really last. Does anyone have product suggestions for achieving the youthful glowing look all over Asian pop culture?

You should check out Glow Recipe's rubber masks! They use alow instead of water for better nutrient absorption and fermented botanicals for more efficient absorption into thte skin. I like them much more than regular sheet masks.

A lot of hydration plus exfoliation 2-3 times a week.

The glowy, youthful look definitely comes from their skin care preparation before makeup or the types of makeup that they use. In Western culture, matte type products are more common than natural or dewy type products. Glossier is a good brand to look into if you want to achieve a glowy, natural look.

I used to use a sunscreen that had pearl shimmer, so when the sunlight hits my skin, there's a bit of a glow. There are also Korean cushions/foundations that are more glowy than matte, but since I don't use any I can't really recommend any.

I recommend IT cosmetics for foundation to achieve an amazing glow

Exfoliating is key. Your skin needs to be rid of all dead skin cells to hold in moisture. I live in Canada in a really dry climate and my skin glows all day. I am Caucasian and use IOPE Skin care - Korean. I exfoliate and give myself a facial with mask at home every Saturday. Good luck!!
