The concept of glass skin has been extremely popular during the past decade owing to the healthy glowing and youthful skin as its central idea. Also, it promotes minimal make-up application and wise use of skincare products that enhance one’s inner glow. This skin care regimen created by doctors, also termed as Korean skincare theme, has been widely acclaimed among women all around the world and has been in extensive practice since then.
For well-nourished flawless skin, there are few essential steps that you need to incorporate in your skincare routine while using the right products having premium quality ingredients. Even if you are following a skincare regimen, make sure it is based on the right sequence of events and is enriched with authentic and safe products. Let’s break down this concept into simple components to have an in-depth insight into how Korean glass skin can be achieved.
The first and foremost step in any skin care regimen is cleansing, a process of thoroughly cleaning the skin of all dirt, debris, oil, or the remnants of applied cosmetics. For removing the latter, cleansing milk, lotions, or micellar water is recommended followed by deep cleansing with foam, gel, or facewash according to one’s skin type. The factor worth considering while choosing a cleanser is to be vigilant that cleanser doesn’t strip away the skin’s natural oils resulting in over-drying or overstimulation of sebaceous glands. Effective cleansing not only refreshes and purifies the skin but also prepares it for better absorption of applied nutrients afterward, in the deeper layers of skin.
Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells that pile up over the skin making it clogged and dull in appearance. While exfoliation can be physical via natural granular cleansers, beads, etc., or chemicals such as through chemical peels, it should always be mild and gentle. Exfoliating twice or thrice weekly is a good practice to stimulate blood flow, collagen production, and improving skin elasticity.
A skin toner aims to hydrate and nourish the skin while restoring its normal pH to facilitate the growth of healthy bacteria and prevent the growth of pathogenic ones. Also, it plumps the skin and prepares it for better absorption of rich skincare products that are applied afterward. Good quality skin toners work synergistically with skin cleansers and impart mild cleansing and exfoliating action to the skin. Also, it favors firm and toned skin by minimizing the appearance of pores.
4. Sun protection
Using sun protection is the prime factor in maintaining healthy, nourished, and young-looking skin. It is no secret that the harmful UV rays from the sun impart mild to severe skin damage that ranges from minor skin burns to lethal skin cancers. It also evaporates skin moisture and with time, accelerates the premature aging in the skin which is everyone’s nightmare. While sunblock formulas have been always been in demand, it is important to choose one based on one’s skin type e.g. oily and acne-prone skin should be catered with non-greasy and non-comedogenic sunscreen formulation. The higher the SPF (sun protection factor) of your sunscreen the broader will be the protection coverage from damaging sun rays. The regular and gracious application of sunblock as well as its reapplication based on one’s sun exposure, work a long way in preventing skin damage as well as decelerate the signs of aging.
5. Power of serum and essence
Face serum and essence are among the dewy skin buzzwords for the past couple of years. To uncover their reality, they are the targeted solutions that address skin concerns and offer supreme benefits in maintaining hydrated, plumped, and sparkling skin. They contain concentrated amounts of skincare ingredients that infiltrate the deeper skin layers and improve dermatological tissues from within. In addition to infusing intense hydration, they pamper the skin for youthful and even complexion. Based on their constitution, they are used for targeting the signs of aging (wrinkles, fine lines, or age spots), acne marks, scars, uneven skin tone, dullness, flaky skin, etc.
6. Sealing moisture
The whole Korean skincare regimen can lose its effectiveness unless the moisture is not sealed within the skin layers through the application of a good-quality moisturizer. Moisturizers create a barrier on the exterior skin thus reducing the evaporation of moisture or the ingredients applied in earlier steps of the regimen. Moisturizers are often combined with brightening or glowing formulas such as Cold Plazma Whitening Cream for an enhanced outcome.
7. Application of eye creams
Korean glass skin regimen is incomplete without the application of eye treatment to hydrate the delicate area around the eyes. It slows the dissolution of elastin and promotes a firm appearance of skin around the eyes. Furthermore, it minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, dark circles, fine lines, and under-eye bags.
Now, the two major concerns that might cross your mind are the persistence in routine and the cost factor behind this skincare regimen. Based on our extensive experience, it is safe to say that a good investment made in premium quality skincare products not only averts the expenses and inconvenience of medical treatments for mistreated or neglected skin but also considerably reduces your expenses of pricey and glitzy make-up products. Moreover, it enhances your confidence when you naturally glow without the need of applying layers of beautifying products which is the essence of Korean glass skin. Likewise, the glass skin facial has been emerging in its recognition that also revolves around the idea of zero make-up skin brightening and restorative processes.
As of consistency in routine, you will feel naturally inclined towards following your daily care regimen when you observe the remarkable and long-lasting results in the form of well-nourished, smooth, and radiant skin, after all this is what everyone dreams of.
