Your Guide to “Glass Skin”

Your Guide to “Glass Skin”

13 May 2024

The glass skin finish has captivated beauty enthusiasts everywhere. The allure of achieving a luminous, glossy finish has soared, overtaking the once popular full coverage matte look.

We’ve all seen the influencer selfies with skin so smooth and dewy, it reflects the light just like glass. It’s visible in the images that celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Hayley Bieber post online. This Korean skincare trend has taken the world by storm.

However, if you feel that you haven’t hit the genetic jackpot and that glowing, luminous skin will never be on the cards for you, think again. Glass skin is achievable for those without picture perfect skin too.

Here’s the thing, when looking beyond the TikTok videos and deeper into the K-beauty trend, glass skin was never centered around perfect skin, but rather, yourbest skin possible. According to Alicia Yoon, founder and CEO of Peach & Lily who helped the trend to mainstream, glass skin is a perfectly attainable skin trend. Glass skin is your skin at its healthiest – skin so healthy that it looks luminous, smooth and clear.

But if you’re looking for a quick fix and some instant beauty hacks, well, that’s not what glass skin is about. The secret to glass skin is healthy skin, and healthy skin takes time. Glass skin is all about being diligent about your skincare routine and giving your skin what it needs to look its best. Ultimately, it really comes down to hydration and getting your complexion to a place where it is so intensely hydrated and smooth that it looks like glass.

Here’s the lowdown on how to achieve glass skin:

  1. Double cleanse twice a day. Wash your skin with a gentle oil cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils, then follow up with a gentle foaming cleanser. Hello clean canvas!
  2. Exfoliate once or twice a week to get rid of dead skin cells. A good face mask after exfoliation will leave you feeling refreshed.
  3. Tone. Toners help to reset the PH of the skin and allow the next steps in your routine to absorb better into the skin. Steer clear of toners with alcohol or witch hazel, which will dry out the skin.
  4. Apply serum in the morning and/or at night. This combo of powerful ingredients is so good for your skin! Especially if they contain vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Serums encourage collagen production and frequent use will make your skin clear and smooth.
  5. Moisturize. Seal in all of that hydration provided by the hyaluronic acid. For that you’ll need a rich moisturizer for dry skin. You could add a face oil to make sure all moisture is locked in.
  6. Always protect your skin from the sun. SPF50 will do.

The best foundation you can wear is healthy, glowing skin.

Skin is a beautiful thing – wear it well.
