The term first originated in the Korean beauty world before becoming viral on social media. The literal meaning of 'Glass Beauty' is to make the skin so luminous and dewy that it could be mistaken for glass. There is no makeup involved in this skincare routine but it totally focuses on the wellness of the skin and aims at achieving healthy, supple and nourished skin. Just as we follow a detailed healthy meal plan when on diet, this skincare regime is more than just a day's affair. It includes a list of products to be included and a prolonged methodological routine to achieve that healthy skin. So if you are someone who thinks one serum, a sunscreen and one moisturiser would help you achieve your dream skin, you surely have a long way to go and persevere while embracing the Glass Beauty t rend. The regime includes sunscreens, exfoliators, serums and masks too but the main aim would be ample moisturising. Glass skin is achieved when the skin is at its healthiest. This approach focuses on the all-round improvement of the skin with proper cleansing, exfoliating, ample vitamins, minerals, acids.

Here's A Detailed Guide To Start The Glass Skin Journey
Start your day with a gentle cleanser. Try to opt for sulfate-free cleansers which are translucent and give less lather.
The process helps to remove the excessive dead skin from the face and also reduces the blackheads.
The prime function of the toners is to maintain the PH levels of the skin which helps the beauty products to get absorbed better into the skin.
4. Introduce Essence
Essence is a thin water-based product which raises the moisture content in the skin and also increases the skin's moisture retention capacity of the skin.
5. Use Hydrating Serums
These fast- absorbing serums are designed to deliver vital actives to your skin like the peptides, minerals and vitamins.
6. Use A Moisturiser
According to the skin type, choose a moisturiser that gives instant hydration to the skin. Layer the face with a light moisturiser which does not leave a greasy effect.
Sunscreens are a non-negotiable step in any skincare routine. Choose a hydrating sunscreen option which does not leave a white cast over the face.
8. Face Masks
Face masks and mask sheets usually soothe the skin reducing skin inflammations and irritations. Look for hydrating masks that calms the skin while giving a radiant glow.
9. Use Eye Creams
Though the eye creams do not magically remove wrinkles and fine lines, using eye creams will also tighten the delicate skin around the eyes giving a smoother skin.
This 9-step routine should be followed by people with any skin type- oily, dry, combination or sensitive. You just need to be careful while choosing the products that work well with your skin type. Try the routine for at least a week to 10 days to get to a conclusion if the k-beauty hack works for your skin or not.
We advise you to visit your dermatologist for any consultation before changing or adding to your existing skincare routine.
