If you are a fan of Korean movies and drama then you must have noticed and adored their glass skin. Following the 10 steps, a Korean skincare routine seems like a lot to do every day but we can simply not get the thought of having glass skin out of our heads. If that is the case with you then we suggest you read this until the end as we have some amazing tips for you to get glass skin naturally.
If you are new to the term glass skin then in simple language it is clear and glossy skin that almost appears like glass. The Koreans won’t specifically use the term glass; they describe it as healthier, glowy, and bouncy skin.
You can describe it in different terms like luminous skin, glowing, clear skin, etc. If you want to understand it better then simply think about the skin of a baby, you will understand what we are trying to say.
Having glass-like skin means that your skin is immensely hydrated and rid of any skin problems- it has no pores; it is super soft and clear. You need to hydrate your skin from the inside too as water helps a lot to help your skin glow.
We generally associate this term with Koreans, since they are genetically blessed, but they are not the only ones crazy about it, girls from all over the world know about the trend of glass skin and try to achieve it by using makeup. We must tell you that you don’t need makeup and you will ask us how to get glass skin naturally so we are here to share this knowledge with you.
If you want to achieve glass skin through the original Korean way then you can follow their 10-step skincare routine which is as follows:
The first step in this routine is the same as your regular skincare routine but instead of using just one cleanser, you use two. This method is known as double-cleansing. This means that you will first use an oil-based cleanser to breakdown makeup or any other impurities on your skin that blocks your pores. Next, use a foaming cleanser to clean your skin further from any remaining impurity.
The next step is the same as any other skincare routine, you will use an exfoliating scrub to remove the dead skin cells from your face and clear your skin of any impurity that was stuck in this layer of your skin. This will help to bring out clearer and softer skin.
Using a toner is very important for Korean skincare, it helps to balance out the pH of your skin and also helps the next product to better absorb into your skin.
Essence or serum
We often skip using this in our everyday routine but this helps to hydrate our skin that is very important for the glass-like look. You can either use both of these products separately or choose one of them and include it in your skincare routine.
Using an essence, serum, or face oil in the earlier step does not mean you skip on moisturizer as the more you hydrate your skin the better it looks. So, the next step is layering moisturizer to provide ample hydration to your skin.
Face masks, Sunscreen, and Lip care
You can use these too as a part of your routine. Use a mask regularly and always apply sunscreen before you step out of the house. Don’t forget to take care of your lips and hydrate them too to complete the skincare.
Ways to get glass skin naturally using products that you find at home
If you want to go natural and want to use homemade products to achieve the glass-like skin then we got you.
- Aloe Vera for clear skin
We need not say how great aloe vera is for your skin and is the solution for a lot of your skin problems. So, if you want glass skin you should use aloe vera, directly to your skin. You can even use the aloe vera gel straight from the plant and apply it to your skin or you can even get aloe vera gel from the market too.
You can even prepare scrubs using natural products or ingredients that can be found easily in your kitchen. Scrubs or exfoliation is important as it helps to clear your skin of any impurity and dead skin cells that create a layer that looks dull.
You can make scrubs using sugar, just take equal amounts of sugar and brown sugar, mix it in water and use it on your skin by massaging in a circular motion for 3 minutes. This will give you a natural glow and promote blood circulation in your face.
- Honey and cinnamon pack
If you want glass skin then you need to use glass skin as it works great for your skin. Use organic honey as it is rich in antioxidants and various nutrients.
To use it, mix 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Apply this on your face and leave it for 20 minutes, wash your face, and pat dry. It will make your skin glowy and soft.
- Apple cider vinegar for scars and marks
If you have dull, blemished, and pigmented skin then you can use apple cider vinegar to rejuvenate your skin. It is acidic so it helps clear out the scars and marks on your skin. To use apple cider vinegar, remember to dilute it by using some rose water.
Use it every day to see visible results and notice the scar marks fading every day and revealing clear and bright skin that looks like glass.
Along with all these products, it is equally important for you to drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin from the inside and eat a balanced diet to make your skin glow from within.
