In South Korea, people are known for their incredible skin. This is thanks to their world-renowned and world-class skincare products, their techniques and the rituals surrounding skincare. It has even given birth to the global K-Beauty movement, which is responsible for many viral trends, products and ingredients. One trend that has emerged from it, that is going to be huge in 2023, is glass skin.
What is glass skin?
The skin ideal in South Korea, glass skin is skin that looks clear, poreless, radiant and almost translucent – like glass! This complexion trend focuses on optimal hydration to make your skin smooth, plump and dewy. So if you’ve spent your life blotting away oil, it’s (literally!) your time to shine!
A glass-skin routine can be performed both day and night and requires that you layer hydrating products to add and lock in moisture. Want to give it a try? Here’s how it’s done in three simple steps:
Step 1 After washing your face, apply a serum to your skin and massage it in. Look for ones that contain hydrating ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid.
Step 2 Once your serum has been absorbed, apply your moisturiser over it to lock moisture in. Gel-cream formulas are great for the glass-skin look.
Step 3 At the end of your routine, and every so often throughout the day, you can give your skin a moisture boost and top up your glow with a facial mist.
Is it buzzy? Sure. But this method gets the thumbs-up from dermatologists, too! Just ensure that you are using products that are designed with your skin type and concerns in mind.
