Skincare trends have been ever-changing, with social media playing a significant role in what is currently trending. Social media has also introduced us to a new skincare regime called the 'Glass Skin Routine,' which has gained much popularity in recent times. This Korean skincare follows the use of a range of products to achieve clear & healthy skin, also called glass skin. It invokes the idea of completely clear, poreless, & dew skin that is a goal for many.
The Glass Skin Routine
Today, most skincare trends emphasize particular products promising instant results, while the Korean Glass Skin regime adopts a multi-dimensional approach. According to this regime, to achieve a glass-like skin, the skin's surface needs to be smooth and free of any bumps. It should not have a rough texture, and there should be a large amount of water beneath the skin surface to create a supple, moist, and radiant appearance that reflects light. Having such skin is just like a dream. Still, to get it, a constant skincare regime that consists of a facial cleanser, a toner, an exfoliator, and a hydrating agent like moisturizer needs to be practiced religiously.
As this regime revolves around intense hydration, it is recommended to opt for watery products rich in hydrating agents like hyaluronic acid or glycerine.
Follow our step-by-step guide on ways to achieve glass-like skin that makes your face glow!
Step 1: Double cleanse your skin
We all know the benefits of cleansing the skin and follow it regularly; however, this Korean regime has introduced us to the ritual of double cleansing your face. The reason why double cleansing is promoted is to make your face free from all the dirt and grime and make the skin receptive to all the hydration and nutrients. To double cleanse your skin, you need to start by using micellar water. St.Botanica Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water can be used to cleanse your skin with a single swipe. Being rich in Vitamin C, it will also help brighten the skin and improve complexion. Follow with the use of a gentle foaming face wash like the St.Botanica Vitamin C Foaming Brightening Face Wash to gently cleanse your skin.
Step 2: Go In For Deep Exfoliation
Clear, bump-free, and smooth skin cannot be achieved without proper exfoliation. However, over-exfoliation can also damage the skin. Thus it is important to exfoliate the skin just two to three times a week to slough off dead skin cells and impurities. To do so, use the St.Botanica Arabica Coffee Face Scrub infused with coffee beans particles that gently exfoliate the skin removing the deep-seated impurities.
Step 3: Tone! Tone! Tone!
Tone your skin to restore its pH balance and provide a boost of hydration and allow much better absorption of the products that will follow. St.Botanica Bulgarian Rose Otto Glow Facial Toner can be used on skin types to help make your skin dewy, tones, and ready for the next step in the regime.
Step 4: Time for Essence
A less concentrated, thinner version of a serum, an essence is used for spot treatment to battle skin-related issues like redness, pigmentation, spot dullness, but they also help hydrate and moisturize the skin.
Step 5: Apply A Serum
A serum not only hydrates your skin but helps even out skin tone and makes it plump and supple. Use the St.Botanica Hyaluronic Acid Professional Facial Serum, which is fast-absorbing and boosts hydration. It also helps promote skin elasticity, retain moisture, and prevent collagen loss.
Step 6: Dab on a Moisturizer
The next step in the Glass skin regime is a no brainer. Everyone knows the benefits of skin moisturizing. However, it is essential for you to choose the appropriate moisturizer for your skin. The ideal moisturizer should be lightweight with maximum moisturizing capacity. St.Botanica Rose Otto Glow Mattifying Moisturizer is an ideal product to add to your skincare regime. It is light in weight, easy to absorb, and comes with SPF 30 to protect the skin against UVA & UVB damage.
Step 7: Pamper the Under eyes
A glass skin regime cannot be considered successful if you sport baggy, dull, and dark under eyes. Thus it is imperative to pamper your under eyes and make them look radiant and bright while keeping them hydrated with an under eye cream or serum. St.Botanica Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Boost Under Eye Recovery Serum helps hydrate the under-eye skin and improve the firmness to avoid the development of dark and baggy under eyes. It also helps reduce dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines and wrinkles.
Step 8: Seal It!
Seal it all in by using a mask or a hydrating gel. Apply a layer of the St.Botanica Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Boost Face Gel to lock the moisture in, relieve the skin of stress, and provide intense hydration. This fast-absorbing, non-comedogenic, and non-greasy moisturizing gel helps increase skin suppleness and clarity while providing a relaxing experience, making it the ideal product to end your skincare regime with.
Now that the secret to flawless skin has been shared, we are sure you will be all ready to hop in and try it for yourself. Glass skin, though, can be achieved by these 8 easy steps, require a lot of patience and commitment, and is not a quick fix but more of a lifestyle habit. Also, good eating habits and drinking an adequate amount of water, and sufficient work out also determine how well your skin looks and how good you glow. It is also very important to set achievable goals for yourself and not be carried away with the trends. Keep realistic expectations with a focus on skincare and a healthy lifestyle to see amazing results!
