With the wedding season and loads of festivities around the corner, it is no wonder that we want to be on top of our beauty game. Originating from Korea, the glass skin trend has been here for some time. As the name suggests, it is all about skin that is smooth, supple and clear just like a glass! Here, we give you 7 tricks to achieve the look.
The first and foremost step in any skincare is cleansing. This is a must as we don’t want any impurities that can lead to issues in the future. So, start off with an oil-based cleanser that will gently remove all traces of makeup from your face.
Post this step, use a mild cleanser of your choice that suits your skin type. Double cleansing ensures that you are free from any sort of alien element on your face. Though, you have to keep in mind that over-cleansing can lead to dry skin which will defeat the whole purpose of getting a glass skin. So, opt for hydrating cleansers that retain moisture.
This step helps in balancing any oiliness or dryness that your might be having. When you choose a toner, make it a point to read the label correctly and ensure that it suits your skin. Apply the toner like you would normally do, but, seven times! Yes, you heard me right! You need to tone seven times to make it all supple like a baby’s skin.
Application of essence is the next step. It makes the skin smooth and radiant as well as increases its capacity to absorb what is put on it. Essence is basically like a facial serum which hydrates. It gets rid of uneven skin tone, dry skin and makes one look youthful in the long run.
The eye area is the most delicate of all! We skip moisturizing this area. Any tugging or pulling here will lead to fine lines and crow’s feet. To take nourishment to another level, apply generously a coat of eye cream. This will keep the eye area all smooth and pampered.
We cannot stress enough on this step! A moisturiser gives an intense boost of hydration leaving the skin healthy looking. You may choose from formulations that suits you. Apply in smooth circular motions so that your skin drinks it up completely!
Now the final step here is to lock in all the goodness with a layer of sunscreen. No matter what the weather is, use a broad spectrum sunscreen. An SPF of 30 to 50, Pa+++ with UVA, UVB protection is apt for Indian weather.
The glass skin trend is all about moisture, hydration and dewy skin. You can continue with makeup if you prefer after these skincare steps. Inculcating these steps in your daily skin care routine religiously will leave your skin looking glass-like!
