The scoop on glass skin and how to get it


Skincare trends are hard to ignore. No matter how much you love makeup, it’s hard to believe there’s even a person out there who doesn’t want a clear, glowing complexion. If one sector of the beauty world consistently stays on top of the most picture-worthy skin tones, it’s K-beauty. The new Korean beauty skin trend is glass skin, which seems almost impossible to achieve. We reached out to Sarah Lee, K-beauty expert and co-founder of Korean beauty brand Glow Recipe, to tell us what the trend is and how to get it.

What is glass skin?

When you think of the word glass, it’s common to think of clear, transparent, transparent, and crystalline. But how do you make your skin look like this? “Glass skin is the ideal skin in Korea,” Lee shares. “It’s skin that looks clear, poreless, translucent and luminous like a piece of glass.” It is not only the ideal skin in Korea, the description of the glass skin is a reference for skin care connoisseurs. Although you weren’t born with or without glass skin, the key to getting the look is in the products.

How can I get a glass skin?

If you know a little about K-beauty, you know that it is about products and generally a myriad of formulas to perfect your skin. “Women achieve glass skin by layering light layers of moisturizers so skin looks dewy and feels plumped from within,” Lee shares. The first step in most, if not all, K-beauty routines is the double cleanse. Double cleansing doesn’t mean twice lathering and rinsing, but rather using one product to remove makeup and debris and a second product to cleanse and rid skin of dirt and bacteria.

After your double cleanse, the pros at Glow Recipe K-beauty suggest following the Seven Way Skincare Routine, which includes several coats of a hydrating toner followed by a pore-refining essence and an ultra-rich moisturizer. . Another expert suggestion for getting glassy skin is a hydrating exfoliating treatment that sloughs away dead skin to reveal a radiant, glowing complexion.
