• How To Get Glass Skin At Home
If you want to hop on the glass skin trend with just a few quick steps, here’s a strategic 8 step routine outlined for you. Make notes.
Exfoliation helps in opening up the pores to deeply purify, buff away all the dead skin cells and reveal rejuvenated complexion. However, limit this step to twice a week, else it could dry up your skin. If you have an acne-prone skin, ensure you invest in a mild face scrub so as to not irritate your skin.

Since the previous step may dry out your skin, it’s essential to restore all the lost moisture. Patting a toner on your skin will get rid of the last traces of excess oils and keep your skin looking plump and hydrated. Also, notice we said pat and not rub.

4. Hydrating Serum
Isn’t glass skin all about achieving a dewy complexion? Well, the more you hydrate your skin, the closer you get to acing that look! Once you are done cleansing and toning, apply a few drops of hydrating serum to deeply hydrate and wake up your skin.

5. Hydrating Essence
Taking the hydration a step further, go for a concentrated formula like an essence which penetrates the skin much deeper than your average product and allows your skin to soak up all the goodness of the next product. An essence basically enhances the absorption of other products in your skin care routine so they work to their optimal best.

Applying moisturizer helps fight dry skin and improve the natural glow of your face. Layering the moisturizer on top of the serum and essence will lock in moisture and make your skin appear dewy. When choosing a moisturizer, keep in mind your skin type. However, for the glass skin look, go for a lightweight and water based moisturizer.

7. Sheet Mask
If you want all the hard work that you’ve done to be sealed in whilst giving your skin a nourishing treat, pick up a sheet mask and pop it on your skin. Think of it as instant dose of much-deserved TLC for your skin.

We can’t stress this enough but a broad spectrum sunscreen will protect your skin from the harmful UV rays which can otherwise affect your skin. So, if you don’t want to worry about hyperpigmentation or dark spots when stepping outdoors sporting your glass skin, remember to apply sunscreen at all times.

FAQs On Korean Glass Skin
1. Suggest glass skin products for better complexion.
2. Recommend glass skin serums for intense hydration.
3. How to follow Korean glass skin trend when dealing with breakouts and troubled skin.
If you have troubled skin, you can still achieve glass skin by including products that are compatible with your skin.
- It may seem counterintuitive but opt for an oil cleanser to effectively degunk pores and dissolve oil-based impurities. Look out for ingredients, such as Chamomile, and Hyaluronic Acid and a pH balancing formula that soothes acne prone skin.
- When choosing serum, opt for a formula which doesn’t contain toxins, or alcohol and doesn’t irritate your skin. Alcohol based products can dry out your skin and result in inflammation.
- Pick a lightweight moisturizer that calms your skin and reduces redness. Steer clear of heavy moisturizing creams that can make your skin oilier.
- Avoid products that contain fragrances and silicones that can affect your skin and cause breakouts.
