What is a K Glow Up?
According to the Urban Dictionary, a “glow up” represents a physical transformation for the better. It can happen naturally or intentionally and can affect one's self-image temporarily or permanently.
In most cases, glow ups happen with the help of beauty products to accentuate natural beauty. For example, we use skincare products to nurture and safeguard the health of our skin and makeup products to highlight the best features of our face.
A “K Glow Up” represents that same idea but with the usage of Korean beauty products and accessories.
