How to achieve glass skin with Korean skincare
We’ve all seen the buzz around glass skin, but what exactly is it? This Korean beauty trend has taken the Western world by storm and, quite simply, it’s about taking small steps in order to achieve glass-like skin. Smooth, soft and flawless, glass skin is about creating a pore less, luminous look that is almost transparent.
By taking the following steps, you can soon achieve the much-loved glass skin look
Start with your cleanser- there’s many reasons why you should regularly carry out a double cleanse, and in this instance, this is vital to achieving a glass-like complexion. A double cleanse works by removing makeup and then removing water-based impurities, and this can help build the foundation towards achieving glass skin. The Etude House Soon Jung 5.5 Foam Cleanser is a gentle hydrating foam cleanser that is excellent for all skin types.
Never neglect the toner- whilst there is some debate as to whether toner helps or hinders glass skin, we believe that by opting for a hydrating toner, you can further nourish the skin to achieve flawless skin. The AXIS-Y Daily Purifying Treatment Toner + Artichoke Ampoule Mini is a wise choice as this toner helps to clear out impurities and calm down reoccurring acne and inflammation. This toner is also is packed full of antioxidants and nutrients that are quickly absorbed into the deep layers of the skin, promoting healing to your skin barrier.
Choose a serum that hydrates and nourishes your skin- a serum is designed to deliver active ingredients deep into the skin, and when you want to make your skin look flawless, you’ll need something that is kind, gentle and brightening. The BEAUTY OF JOSEON Glow Deep Serum (30ml) contains 68.8% Rice Bran Water and 2% Arbutin which are known for brightening and tackling pigmentation, acne scars and dullness.
Moisturise, moisturise and moisturise – in order to get glass skin, it’s vital that you keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. Don’t be afraid to top up your moisturiser during the day, and before bed, make sure to layer it on so it can soak in as you sleep. The NACIFIC Pink AHA BHA Cream is a good choice as it lightly exfoliates, revealing brighter and smoother complexion.
Consider an essence- Applying an essence as part of your skincare routine is a great way to achieve glass skin. An essence is a skincare product that has a high concentration of substances that are active in hydrating, protecting, and enhancing skin health. After using a cleanser and toner, apply essence to clean skin to help the skin cells regain their moisture. We recommend the COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence which is formulated with 96% Snail Secretion Filtrate. Thanks to its light-weight texture, this essence locks in moisture deep into the skin, plumps the skin to improve the appearance of fine lines, and has the ability to repair and strengthen the skin barrier.
Above all else, have patience- we know just how much you want to achieve glass like skin, but the main thing to remember is that it takes patience and time. This won’t happen overnight, but is instead a slow and steady process. By doing the above steps and making sure you’re being kind and gentle to your skin, you can soon achieve Korean glass skin like so many others!
