5 Easy Ways To Achieve That Glowy Korean Glass Skin
K-beauty trends have been at the forefront of the beauty industry for years now. From makeup to skincare, K-beauty trends have been taking the world over by storm and inspiring more people to hop on the bandwagon. In a previous article we had covered some K-beauty brow tips, so today, we will be diving headfirst into Korean skincare.
Just take a look at any of your favourite K-pop idols or K-drama actors. One of the first things you’d notice is their flawless, clear complexion. This is known as “glass skin”. Essentially, Korean glass skin refers to dewy, glowy, smooth and almost pore-less-looking skin that reflects like glass due to its translucence.
Want to look like a Korean celebrity and leave your friends in awe of your flawless complexion? Keep on reading for 5 easy ways to achieve that glowy Korean glass skin to die for!
1. Always double cleanse
Double cleansing, as the name suggests, means cleansing your face twice – once with an oil-based product and again with a water-based product.
Double cleansing is the foundation of any Korean skincare regime, and for good reason! After a long day out, your skin has accumulated a ton of grease, dirt and makeup residue.
To achieve Korean glass skin, ensuring that your skin is a clean canvas to absorb the rest of your skincare routine is essential. Double cleansing helps to whisk away all that gunk from your face that could potentially cause breakouts, skin texture and dull skin – all of which are things we don’t want when we are after that healthy, flawless glow.
2. Be generous with your serums
Serums are an indispensable product when it comes to Korean skincare. Serums can help to reduce signs of ageing and correct skin texture. Depending on the type of serum you choose to go for, they may also provide hydrating effects that help your skin look like it glows from within.
For reference, we would recommend the following ingredients:
- Vitamin C: Helps brighten and protect with antioxidants.
- Peptides: They are a good choice if you are looking for a smoother and firmer skin texture.
- Hyaluronic acid: Draws in moisture and keeps your skin looking plump and hydrated.
3. Never skip out on SPF
We hate to break it to you, but you can put your thoughts of having glass skin to rest if your skin isn’t UV-protected.
The sun’s harmful UV rays can cause significant damage to the skin. If you do not apply sunscreen, your skin will be unprotected against UV rays and will become dull and textured — no matter how many serums or ampoules you layer on!
Remember: SPF is necessary all year round, even on days when you’re staying in or when the sun’s not out.
4. Treat your skin to a sheet mask
Even if you are not an avid follower of K-beauty trends, we are sure you have heard of the benefits sheet masks can bring. Masks are perhaps the one thing that the K-beauty industry is most fixated on.
But hey – what’s not to love about treating your skin to all that goodness whilst unwinding?
Sheet masks are the easiest way to soothe irritated skin and quickly replenish moisture. In just 10 to 20 minutes, you can have a much more radiant complexion that screams “glow”.
We would recommend treating yourself to sheet masks 2 to 3 times a week!
5. Go for a facial treatment
Going for a professional facial treatment will help you achieve blemish-free skin. Most facials include extractions, which help to thoroughly remove clogged pores and blackheads, giving your skin that smooth texture you’re after!
Besides, the professionals know best. When you go for a facial treatment, your skin will be generously fed with all the nutrients and ingredients it needs. And all you have to do is show up, lie down and get pampered. Achieving that K-beauty glow has truly never been easier!
