Let’s be honest, there are tons of features that celebrities have that we would kill for. One of the biggest characteristics that everyone seems to be crazy about is skin.
The epitome of “skin-of-glass” is to achieve the famous “skin of glass” look.
“Glass skin” is a term used to describe when the skin has an intense pink texture to the point of reflecting light.
K-Beauty popularized the term and drove the skin care community into a frenzy. Put simply, this is what all the celebrities seem to have on the red carpet – where your skin is shiny and smooth (but not too oily). Just the right amount of moisture to give your cheeks natural light.
The truth is, there’s no easy or quick way to get glassy skin, especially if you’re acne-prone (like a lot of us). Before you can achieve that level of radiant skin, you must first take care of your skin and make sure it is healthy and hydrated. It means creating a skin care routine that works for you and your skin type.
Our skin changes over time and also changes depending on our environment. Whether you’re getting older and dealing with new issues like acne or wrinkles, or you’ve moved to a drier place than usual, you need to make an effort to give your skin the attention it deserves. needs to radiate normal base.
Do you want to try the glass skin yourself? Follow these 5 steps to rejuvenate your face and promote healthy, clear skin that’s always ready for the camera:
1. Exfoliate your face regularly to get rid of dead skin.
The oil and dead skin cells that are on your face can cause a rash. When the skin cells die, our new skin is found underneath which can cause rashes. To avoid this, try to exfoliate every 2 days to regain normal skin.
Make sure you don’t overexfoliate your skin, eh! You will be scratching the new skin that you have generated which will cause irritation and increase the healing time. So don’t rub too hard and don’t use an exfoliating scrub that is painful. Be gentle on your skin and use a product that makes you feel fresh and clean when it’s all done.
2. Use a moisturizer on your face every day.
Hydration is a major key to achieving glass skin. When your skin is dry, it becomes dull, flaking, and inelastic. It happens to a lot of people, especially during the winter seasons.
Over time, your skin will change in texture due to the lack of moisture and this causes wrinkles, so be sure to moisturize your face regularly to keep your skin supple. There are different types of skin moisturizers like gels and lotions, just make sure the one you are using is specially made for your face (not other parts of your body), so you don’t get any. too much oil (which can make you burst).
3. Drink tons of water.
What you put in is what you get. This means that consuming too much sugar or soda can strongly affect your skin. Over 70 percent of our bodies are water. Water helps cleanse our body of toxins through sweat. This process keeps our pores from getting clogged with dirt and oil. So drink!
You can get water in all kinds of ways (by drinking tea, using flavor packs, etc.), but the best way to get water is to drink it as it is. So get used to pouring yourself a glass of water to drink when you wake up and at bedtime to get into the habit of drinking plain water.
4. Shave or dermaplan your skin.
Naturally, we get peach fuzz on our faces over time (yes, women do have facial hair, too). You might not be able to see it at first glance, but it can change the overall look of your face. To avoid this, try seeing a dermal planner or if you are on a budget, you can do it at home just by purchasing a facial razor. If you choose to derma plan at home with a razor, be careful not to cut your skin.

5. Be very selective with the products that you put on your face.
The glassy appearance of the skin comes from the way your skin reflects light. To achieve this, your pores must be minimized and your skin must have high elasticity. Brands like Drunk Elephant, The Ordinary, and Peter Thomas Roth have great products to improve the texture of your skin.
