Have you ever wondered if there was a word to describe a clear, smooth and dewy complexion? Well there is: ‘glass skin’.
Glass skin is the latest Korean beauty goal, according to Refinery29, and it focuses on the kind of radiant complexion that can’t be faked. “Glass skin is this idea of see-through, translucent skin,” Alicia Yoon, founder of K-beauty store Peach & Lily, told the publication. “It’s a sign of youth and it’s one of the most sought-after qualities in Korea.”
Achieving the look requires exfoliation to get rid of dead skin cells and smooth the skin, before hydrating with an intense serum, face mask or moisturizer. According to Glow Recipe founders Sarah Lee and Christine Chang, who spoke to Allure about the trend, layering different moisturizers on the skin will result in the deep glow that’s synonymous with “glass skin.”
For inspiration on how to wear the glowing look this season, head to Instagram, where K-beauty fans showed off their naturally rosy complexions in droves.
K-beauty is known for its emphasis on skincare through its 10-step routine, and is widely credited with starting the sheet mask craze in Europe and the United States that took off last year.
