If you’re a big admirer of Korean beauty, you’ve probably heard the term ‘glass skin’ – it refers to a clear, dewy, and glass-like complexion. Even you can get this exceptionally smooth and flawless skin just by following the trending 8-step skincare routine.
The typical 8- step glass-skin regimen is as follows:
#STEP 1: Double Cleanse
Cleansing is essential to remove dust, dirt, makeup, and pollutants that have accumulated over the face throughout the day. If not cleansed deeply, it can block facial pores, lead to dryness, acne and accelerate the rate of ageing. That’s why experts suggest the double cleansing method.
The first step is to clean the face with herbal cleansing milk with ingredients like vetiver extracts, lemon peel, basil, etc. It helps clean and gently remove makeup and impurities. It also enhances the suppleness and elasticity of the skin. After this, use a gentle facial foam with ingredients like Aloe Vera extracts, milk enzymes, etc. They clean the skin, hydrate, and reduce tan and pigmentation.
#STEP 2: Exfoliate
Skin naturally sheds dead skin cells around every 30 days, but sometimes they are not shed completely. It leads to dry, flaky and pigmented skin. Thus exfoliation is essential. It removes dead skin cells and blackheads to reveal soft, glowy skin. But don’t go overboard. Choose a gentle scrub with natural exfoliators like oatmeal. It’s best to exfoliate two to three times a week to avoid skin irritation, especially if you have sensitive skin.
#STEP 3: Use a toner
Toners balance the skin’s pH and help the next steps in your regimen be absorbed more effectively. Look for toners with the benefits of ingredients like rose and tulsi. Rose detoxifies, hydrates, restores the skin’s pH balance and tulsi, with its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, keeps acne at bay. You must buy skincare products that are best suited to your skin type. Avoid alcohol-based skin care products as they dry out the skin.
#STEP 4: Try an essence
Adding an essence (a thin, water-based product that gives moisture to the skin) into your regimen aids in product absorption by improving moisture retention in the skin.
#STEP 5: Apply a serum or face oil
A serum or hydrating face oil is used in the fifth phase of the glass skin routine. Since serums have smaller molecules, they penetrate deep into the skin and give maximum benefits. Thus including a natural and paraben-free serum is vital. Go with a serum rich in Vitamin C as it helps collagen production, makes skin bright and reduces acne.
#STEP 6: Dab your moisturizer
Intense moisturization is a critical step to achieving glass skin. Choose a lightweight cream for bright skin that provides ultra-hydration, sun protection and apply it generously twice a day. It will create a layer of protection while locking in the skin’s moisture.
For best results, try Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Vitamin-C Radiance Creme SPF 20 I PA+++ with Kakadu plum and Yuzu lemon as its prime ingredients. It deeply moisturizes and reduces dark spots and pigmentation.
#STEP 7: Use sun protection
Sun protection is an absolute must-have product that protects the skin from harmful UV rays and prevents premature skin ageing. Look for a non-greasy, non-patchy and lightweight formula that you can wear daily. Apart from SPF 25 PA++ protection, some sunscreens provide intense moisturization with natural ingredients like exotic Bulgarian rose, making them an ideal cream for bright skin.
#STEP 8: Face masks
Face masks make the skin firmer, rendering it deep hydration, sheer radiance and glow. Lotus Herbals WHITEGLOW Skin Brightening Yogurt Masque is an excellent choice to start. This product is enriched with yoghurt enzymes & bearberry extracts that give the skin a beautiful glow & firmness.
You can achieve the perfect look if you buy the right skincare products. Follow this skincare regimen regularly to achieve a glass skin glow.
