New Delhi – Who doesn’t love the party season – bold red lips, sparkling eyes, fluttering lashes, high cheekbones and shower glam. Along with all the perfect makeup and looks, our skin also begs for a little love. In the world of skincare, no one gets it better than Korean Beauty aka K-Beauty. Whether you’re a fan or not, there’s no denying that their dewy, glowing skin is a dream.
We all yearn for beautiful glass skin – looking smooth, clear, intensely hydrated and glowing, how we get it is what Dr. Aakriti Mehra, Kult’s dermatology expert, will help us achieve. Although your friends swear by some products, they just might not work for your skin. So how do you choose which ones are worth buying? Listen to the experts!
“Nothing beats the glow of healthy, cleansed, toned, nourished and hydrated skin. Everyone’s skin is different and what works for one may not work for another.

Read on as she reveals the perfect five-step routine for getting glassy skin this festive season.
Step 1: clean and shine
Start with clean skin to get rid of all the clogs in your pores without stripping it of its natural oils. Use the Cosrx Calming Foam Cleanser which refreshes your skin instantly. The main ingredient in this cleanser is one of our acne favorites: salicylic acid. This superstar acid exfoliates, unclogs pores, and prevents excess oil, leaving no breakouts in its wake. The formula effectively removes makeup, sunscreen and removes remaining impurities. The super gentle cleanser is boosted with CentellAC-RX Complex which soothes and unclogs blocked pores, giving breakouts no chance.
Step 2: Toner Time
Use a toner that helps calm irritated skin while maintaining its moisture balance. With antibacterial properties, One Thing’s Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract Rich Toner is the gold standard. One for the city dwellers, this deeply hydrating, antioxidant-rich toner is packed with green tea extract. The powerful formula does so many amazing things for your skin – locks in moisture without the need for too much product layering, controls oiliness, soothes breakouts and repairs damage. You can also use it as a mist, just transfer it to a spray bottle and mist throughout the day or add 5-10 drops to your regular creams.
Step 3: Vitamin C-ute!
Follow it with a moisturizing serum to make our skin happy. Hydration is the foundation of glass-perfect skin, and Klairs Vitamin C Serum is your holy grail. Giving your skin the ultimate glow and keeping it firm, this serum contains Vitamin C at a 5% concentration, making it ideal for sensitive skin. The hypoallergenic formula brightens the skin, tightens pores and evens out your skin tone. It’s gentle and non-irritating, so if you’re considering adding a vitamin C serum to your routine, it’s a good place to start. You can use it during the day and at night, but be sure to stock up on sunscreen every day.
Step 4: Hide
Pamper your skin with a sheet mask designed to nourish and brighten. Made with carrots, It’s Skin Carrot Face Mask is packed with vitamin A which soothes and improves skin tone. Designed with a multiporous air layer, the mask is soaked in serum to deliver optimal results. Apply evenly to a dry face and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Continue to remove and pat any access serum into the skin and feel the difference.
Step 5: The final icing
Make the final glaze with the perfect oil. This Inkey List Rosehip Oil is an all-purpose oil that’s as simple as its minimal formula. Its 100% purity removes the dull veil from your face, promotes skin aging and evens out the complexion. Use it at night to wake up to luxuriously dewy, plump skin. You’ll want to use every last drop as the final step in your nighttime skin routine. Apply and gently massage until absorbed or mix with your regular moisturizer for extra nourishment.
