Unveiling the Glass Skin Trend: A Radiant Revolution in Skincare
A new trend in the ever-evolving world of skincare is the "Glass Skin" trend. Originating in South Korea, this trend has transcended borders and has become a global phenomenon. In this blog post, we will delve into the mesmerising world of glass skin, exploring what it is, and how to achieve it.
What is Glass Skin?
Glass skin, often referred to as "Yuri Pibu" in Korea, is a term that describes skin so clear, smooth, and translucent that it resembles a sheet of glass. The trend is all about achieving a complexion that's so flawless that makeup becomes optional. Glass skin is characterised by a dewy, luminous, and poreless appearance, where the skin reflects light like glass.
The Science Behind Glass Skin
Achieving glass skin is not just about aesthetics; it's also a sign of healthy skin. The secret to glass skin lies in a combination of factors, including:
Hydration: Well-hydrated skin is a fundamental aspect of glass skin. Adequate hydration keeps the skin plump and helps it retain moisture, resulting in a dewy and radiant complexion.
Exfoliation: Regular exfoliation removes dead skin cells, promoting skin renewal and a smoother texture. This process is key to achieving the glassy smoothness associated with this trend.
Skincare Regimen: A consistent skincare routine that includes gentle cleansers, moisturisers, serums, and sunscreen is essential. Using products that target specific skin concerns, such as uneven skin tone or dark spots, is also crucial.
Sun Protection: Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is paramount. Sunscreen is a must to prevent premature aging, dark spots, and other skin imperfections.
How to Achieve Glass Skin
Now that we've explored the science behind glass skin, let's discuss how to achieve it. Here are some Avant steps to incorporate into your skincare routine:
Double Cleansing: Start with our oil-based Bi-Phase Hyaluronic Acid Rejuvenating Micellar Water to remove makeup and impurities, followed by our Blue Volcanic Stone Purifying & Antioxidising Cleansing Gel to deep clean your pores.
Exfoliation: Gently exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week with our Gentle Rose Beautifying Face Exfoliant to remove dead skin cells and promote skin renewal.
Hydration: Incorporate hydrating products, such as hyaluronic acid serums like our Eight Hour Retexturing & Anti-Oxidising Hyaluronic Facial Serum, into your routine. These help maintain the skin's moisture barrier.
Moisturise: Choose a moisturiser that suits your skin type to keep it well-hydrated. One of our favourites is the Supreme Hyaluronic Acid Anti-oxidising DUO Moisturiser.
Sunscreen: Apply our Multi-Defense Ceramides Protecting Veil Broad-Spectrum SPF 50 daily to protect your skin from UV damage.
Achieving glass skin requires a dedicated skincare routine, a commitment to maintaining your skin's health, and a holistic approach to beauty. So, whether you're new to skincare or a seasoned enthusiast, the glass skin trend is an aspiration that can guide you towards a luminous, dewy complexion.
Remember, dehydrated skin is much more prone to UV rays, so it's important to not miss out on moisturiser alongside SPF in your winter skincare routine. You can read our article, Why SPF Is Your Cold-Weather Companion.
