The Asian community needs our support now more than ever. With the number of anti-Asian attacks across the country at an all-time high, the Asian American community is hurting. There were nearly 3,800 attacks in the last year during the pandemic, more than 1,000 more than the year prior. And in the last year, hate crimes against people of Asian descent increased at a faster pace than hate crimes overall.
The beauty industry relies heavily on the Asian culture: Korean beauty brands, like Laneige and Dr. Jart+, are some of the top cult favorites. While brands like Shiseido and SK-II opened the door for Japanese and Asian beauty brands, many other small businesses followed to create an era where K-Beauty and J-Beauty reigned supreme. Many beauty practices and ingredients, like reishi mushrooms and gua sha, are based in Traditional Chinese Medicine. So, to help celebrate and uplift Asian beauty brands, here are our 14 favorite Asian-owned shops to support right now and always.
