Ever since we’ve heard about Korean ‘glass skin’, we’ve been on a quest to achieve it, and boy, it’s a hard quest. This ultra-hydrated, plump, lustrous and youthful-looking skin demands a lot more than skincare fads can promise, because a truly translucent complexion requires a dedicated and careful regimen including double cleansing and deeply hydrating rituals.

Why is it called ‘glass’ skin, you may ask? Because of its flawless, reflective, poreless finish. Think of skin so impeccably smooth and hydrated, it’s glossy! While being blessed with great genes may help, it’s actually possible for most people to achieve this with the right regimen specific to your skin type. Be warned: This routine includes various steps and layers. To simplify it a little, you can use products that cover multiple steps as well.

Double cleanse and exfoliate > Hydrate and tone > Add an essence or a serum > Deeply hydrate with masks > Layer with moisturisers > Finish with sun protection

Ahead,  check out our list of highly effective Korean beauty products to kickstart your glass skin ritual.
