Out of the many skin care and beauty trends that have come out of Korea, few are as enduring as the glass skin trend. Part of the appeal of this trend is its promise to give practitioners glowing and poreless skin that’s so smooth, it’s practically translucent, like well-polished glass.
Aside from the translucence, glass skin is also supposed to be youthful, plumped with hydration, and even-toned—and who wouldn’t want to have skin like that? Achieving such ethereal skin, however, requires quite a bit of work if you aren’t already blessed with good genes or a great skin care routine to begin with.
What Products & Steps are Needed to Achieve Glass Skin?
Your basic glass skin routine will require multiple products and steps. First, you’ll need to double cleanse your face with two cleansers. The first cleanse usually involves a cleansing oil or micellar water to remove the day’s grime and pollution. This is followed by a foam wash or cream cleanser (depending on your skin type).
To achieve poreless skin, you’ll need to exfoliate your face regularly, anywhere from between two to three times a week. You’ll also need to add a face mask to your routine, not only to address specific skin issues (like redness, dryness, and fine lines), but also to give your skin that extra boost of glow-inducing hydration.
To top it all off, you’ll need to invest in an array of hydrating toners, serums, ampoules, essences, and moisturizers. Plus, if you’re going outdoors in the daytime, you’ll also need to invest in a high-quality sunscreen.
As for the steps, products need to be layered in a specific order, and the overall process can be both time-consuming and product-intensive. Some K-beauty experts, for example, recommend layering toners up to seven times on the skin.
If this all sounds expensive and time-consuming, the bad news is that it can be. Fortunately, there is a way for you to follow a simplified glass skin regimen that not only delivers that coveted poreless glow, but does so without draining your wallet.
Get Translucent Skin with the Glossy Glass Skin Beauty Bundle
Glossy Skinnovation has designed a simplified glass skin routine that not only delivers flawless and radiant skin, but also does so at an affordable price.
The Glossy Glass Skin Beauty Bundle offers a simplified but highly targeted range of products that targets your main skin concerns.
The bundle consists of the following products:
- The Glass Skin Hydrating Foam Cleanser
- The Glass Skin Deep Cleansing Water
- The Glass Skin Refining Serum
- The Sunblock Foundation SPF 60 with Placenta
Step #1: Double Cleanse with the Deep Cleansing Water & Hydrating Foam Cleanser
As previously noted, the first step is to double cleanse your face. The first cleanser’s job is to remove all the dirt, oil, makeup, and sunscreen from your skin. The next cleanser should gently wash away all the remaining dirt and build-up without stripping your skin of its essential moisture.
Glossy’s Deep Cleansing Water should be the first step in your evening skin care routine. This multi-action water-based cleanser effectively removes dirt, makeup, and oil from the face, eye area, and lip zone. The solution also reduces excess oil without drying your skin.
Apply an ample amount of the cleansing water onto a cotton pad and gently wipe the pad over your face and neck. For best results, only use this product at night.
The next step is to wash your face with the Hydrating Foam Cleanser. This highly effective and moisturizing foam cleanser minimizes pore size, as well as cleanses and lightens the skin. The product is formulated with soothing natural extracts (like witch hazel and citric acid), as well as nourishing lipids. These are vital for maintaining the skin’s integrity and elasticity.
Step #2: Brighten & Firm Your Skin with the Refining Serum
Apply between two to three pumps of the Skin Refining Serum onto your palms, spread the mixture, and then apply the mixture onto your face and neck. Similar to the Deep Cleansing Water, this glass skin serum should only be applied in the evenings.
The Refining Serum is very hydrating and penetrates deep into the skin to deliver crystal-clear results. With regular use, skin is noticeably brighter, firmer, and better hydrated. The active ingredients found in this serum include licorice root extract and chamomile extract.
Step #3: Protect Your Glowing Skin During Daytime with the Sunblock Foundation SPF 60
During daylight hours, you’ll need to protect your skin with a highly effective sunblock. The Sunblock Foundation SPF 60 with Placenta is a moisturizing tinted sunscreen that provides SPF 60. It can help prevent premature aging by shielding the skin from UV ray damage, which is known to accelerate the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as encourage the development of pigment irregularity.
