The August 2019 issue of That's Beijing is out now – paper-and-ink form citywide, digital PDF form right here or in your browser here. Editor-in-Chief Valerie Osipov introduces the magazine:


After last month’s guide on lesser-traveled destinations around the Asia-Pacific region, we’re sticking closer to home this month, shifting from the beauty of exploring to the exploration of beauty in China. 

For our August cover story, National Arts Editor Bryan Grogan takes a magnified look at the not-so-pretty reality of China’s buzzing beauty industry. Let’s face it: With the heavy influence of social media and beautifying apps like Meitu feeding a growing culture of high beauty standards, the Chinese beauty industry is booming now more than ever, as consumers turn to skincare products and cosmetic surgery to keep up appearances. As a result, makeup companies and plastic surgery facilities are flourishing to accommodate the beauty-crazed masses. But how is this superficial frenzy influencing China’s younger generations and where are these industry changes leading to? 

Elsewhere in the magazine:

  • That’s Shenzhen Editor Phoebe Kut introduces us to the duo behind urban streetwear brand Zai Level;

  • I catch up with frontman Yuto Ichino of Japanese synth-pop band The fin. before their Beijing gig;

  • And Andrew Braun eats his way through unlimited Cheddar Bay biscuits at the newly opened Red Lobster. 

Until next month,

Valerie Osipov
Editor-in-Chief
