5 Korean Glass Skin Secrets

In the world of skincare, the pursuit of flawless and radiant skin has led many to the coveted realm of Korean beauty secrets. One trend that has taken the beauty world by storm is the phenomenon of "Glass Skin."

This Korean beauty trend is all about achieving a luminous, dewy complexion that resembles clear and smooth glass. If you've been wondering how to unlock the secrets behind this ethereal glow, you're in for a treat.

In this blog post, we'll delve into five secrets to help you achieve the coveted Korean Glass Skin.

Double Cleansing for a Fresh Start

Korean skincare places a strong emphasis on the importance of thorough cleansing. The first step towards attaining glass skin involves a double cleansing routine.Β 

Begin with an oil-based cleanser to remove makeup, sunscreen, and impurities accumulated throughout the day. Our favourite is the Dokdo Cleansing Oil by Round Lab or the Radiance Cleansing Balm by Beauty of Joseon.Β 

Follow up with a water-based cleanser to cleanse your skin at a deeper level. Double cleansing ensures a clean canvas for the subsequent steps in your skincare routine, allowing the following products to penetrate more effectively.

Hydration is Key

One of the core principles of achieving glass skin is maintaining optimal hydration levels. Incorporate hydrating products such as toners, essences, and serums into your routine.Β 

Korean skincare often features lightweight, hydrating formulas that focus on replenishing and retaining moisture. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin, known for their ability to attract and lock in moisture, leaving your skin plump and dewy.Β 

Try this cult-favourite essence by CosRx and layer it with this Glacier Water Hyaluronic Acid Serum by Mixsoon for bouncy and glassy skin.

Exfoliation for a Smooth Canvas

Smooth, clear skin is essential for the glass skin look, and exfoliation plays a crucial role in achieving this. Regularly exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover, unveiling a fresh and radiant complexion.

Opt for gentle chemical exfoliants like AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) or BHAs (beta hydroxy acids) to avoid irritation while effectively refining the texture of your skin.

If you have oily and acne-prone skin, you can incorporate daily, gentle exfoliation in the form of toners such as the Aloe BHA Skin Toner by Benton. Another way to gently resurface the skin and unclog pores is by using an exfoliating serum such as this one by Isntree. It has a complex of 4 gentle acids that effectively remove dead skin cells to reveal a fresher complexion.

Layering Skincare Products

The art of layering skincare products is a fundamental aspect of Korean beauty routines. Start with the thinnest and most watery products, such as toners, and gradually move towards thicker consistencies, like creams or moisturizers.

This layering technique allows each product to be absorbed effectively, providing your skin with the necessary nutrients and hydration. Don't forget to seal in the goodness with a good quality moisturizer to create a protective barrier against moisture loss.

Sunscreen Goodness

This is a non-negotiable when it comes to a solid Korean skincare routine. No glass skin routine is complete without incorporating a high SPF sunscreen.

Sunscreen not only protects your skin but also ensures that your glass skin remains flawless for the long haul. Sun protection is crucial to prevent sun damage, premature aging, and pigmentation. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and apply it diligently, even on cloudy days. One of our favourite sun screen is the lightweight No. 1 Clear Filter Sun Essence by Numbuzin.

Embarking on the journey to achieve Korean Glass Skin is an investment in self-care and skincare rituals. By embracing these five secrets – double cleansing, prioritizing hydration, regular exfoliation, strategic product layering, and consistent sun protection – you'll be well on your way to unveiling the radiant, dewy complexion you've always dreamed of.

Remember, the key to glass skin lies not just in the products you use but in the commitment to a consistent and holistic skincare routine. Cheers to the luminous glow awaiting you on this radiant journey!
