It’s no secret that everyone wants soft, glowy and flawless looking skin. But there’s a new viral Korean beauty trend that takes gorgeous skin to the next level. It’s called “glass skin”, and you’re about to see it EVERYWHERE.
Glass skin is the result of of having a smooth, flawless complexion that’s so hydrated and plump it looks visibly dewy - like a clean glass pane. #Goals, right? This may seem like an impossible feat, but it’s easier than you might realize! And since we’re always looking for ways to take our skin to the next level, we came up with three easy ways for you to achieve glass skin:
Step One: Stick to a Regimen
Having smooth, poreless skin is the result of sticking to a consistent, diligent skincare routine. Gorgeous skin doesn’t happen overnight. Build a skincare regimen that cleanses, tones, moisturizes, and treats your skin, and be sure to stick with it every day! No matter how tired or busy you are, make your skincare routine a regular part of your daily routine.
An easy trick to sticking to a regimen is to actually schedule it into your day. Set a reminder on your phone, write it in your planner, or even leave yourself a note on your mirror - do whatever you need to do to make sure you make time for your skin. Even something as small as hitting the snooze button only once (instead of your usual four times) will give you a few extra minutes to devote to your skincare routine. Trust us, once you have glass skin, you won’t even miss those extra 15 minutes!
Step Two: Exfoliate
Get flawless (glass) skin by exfoliating 2-3 times per week. Exfoliating is the process of getting rid of all the dirt and dead skin cells that clogs your pores on your outermost layer of skin. By doing this a few times every week, you’ll start to see your skin look and feel smoother, getting you closer to having glass skin. It also ensures that your skincare is sinking in deeper and working better to hydrate and plump.
Don’t have the time or the money to spend on a long treatment at the spa? Our brand new Dual-Phase Skin Reviving Treatment Pads are perfect for getting a soft, glowing complexion with a quick and affordable at-home facial. The first side of the pad will spread an activating serum + cotton fibers all over your face, and the second side of the pad will exfoliate to reveal brighter and smoother skin. The pad will leave tiny natural cotton fibers on your skin which act as a physical exfoliant while the serum acts as a chemical exfoliant. Together, they work to leave you with baby smooth skin, instantly.
If you have a little more time, or you’re indulging in a little me-time, try a mask like our Exfoliating Treatment Mask. This microbeads in this formula physically extract dirt from your pores and the clay will detox your skin, leaving you with a brighter and smoother complexion, just like the treatment pads. It’s important to exfoliate both chemically and physically to see optimal results. Physical exfoliation will make your skin feel softer, while chemical exfoliation will work to thoroughly remove debris in your pores and preserve the longevity of your smooth skin. By using these products a few times every week, you’ll be able to feel and visibly see your skin get smoother and brighter.
Step Three: Hydrate
After exfoliating, hydrating is the last crucial step in achieving glass skin. Exfoliating is an important part of the process, but it can dry out your skin if you don’t properly hydrate after. If you want to have a glowing, shining complexion, the key is to find the perfect combination of serums and moisturizers to keep your skin plump and deeply hydrated.
Know that it’s never too late to start using age-defying products! Use a serum like our Volume Defense Deep Wrinkle Serum to target the loss of volume in your face. It will plump your skin and promote firmness to make your skin appear younger and healthier.
Looking for even more of a glow? Use our Illuminating Serum to brighten your skin tone. This serum will make your skin glow from within, which will give you that luminous glass-like skin.
Finally, don’t forget to moisturize! Our best selling Hydrating Day & Night Cream acts like a veil of moisture for your skin. This silky formula gives your skin deep hydration that’s lightweight enough for daytime use but powerful enough for overnight use, too. By using this moisturizer, your glow will be unrivaled.
With these easy three steps and by making skincare an important part of your daily routine, and you’ll have glass skin in no time. While the phrase “glass skin” might be just a trend, healthy and hydrated skin is always in - and with these simple steps, you’ll always be in style!
