Glass Skin

What is Glass Skin, actually? This term is widely used in the K-Beauty culture because Glass Skin is the ultimate skincare goal for anyone who believes in the power of Korean Beauty Standards.

Glass Skin is represented by “the glow” that every skincare fanatic is trying to achieve. As a matter of fact, some beauty products are described as Miracle Glow Milk, implying that the use of the product will rapidly bring you closer to achieving Glowing Skin. We know, it sounds exaggerated, but allow us to enlighten you on the secrets to Glass Skin that nobody tells you.

The number one rule to achieving Glass Skin is sun protection. You should apply it every day, two hours a day. On rainy days, on cloudy days, and on days that you don’t plan on leaving the house. Sunscreen is the ultimate anti-aging measure you could take in preserving your skin’s youth.

The Key to Glass Skin for the majority of Korean Women is a Hydration-packed 10 step Korean skincare routine. This refers to literally accumulating water just beneath the skin surface as it catches and reflects the light, hence the Glass Skin Effect. This is not only achieved by drinking enough water on a daily basis, as the skin does not store the water consumed from within as well as it stores moisture from humectant active ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA can hold up to one thousand times its moisture and when applied to the skin, it absorbs moisture from the environment.

Layering humectants is a secret lethal weapon taking steps closer towards achieving glass skin, given that actives come in different molecule sizes depending on the formula. It allows the skin to absorb moisture in different phases for optimal hydration. It is safe to say that intensive hydration truly lies in the core of the KBeauty Regimen aimed at achieving Glass Skin.

Moreover, fermented Ingredients are embodied in the lifestyle of Koreans, not only in their staple KPop Diet, but they are also key elements in the Korean Beauty Regime usually found in step five of the 10 steps, Essence. The fermentation process of nutritional ingredients merely results in them being more concentrated and as a result, better absorption into the skin. In addition throughout the fermentation process, amino acids and peptides are produced. These ingredients are commonly known to aid in skin cell renewal.

  1. I have been on this journey😫😅. I reached near glass skin or “pseudo-glass skin” – if there is anything like that. I could tell that I was close but I never quite really got there. Nope, instead I thought if i used some hyped product I’d get there faster… turns out it had a component that doesn’t suit my skin type… took me back to square one💔

  2. So I started out this year with this on my resolutions for the year. 2 months in, I aced it! Thanks for this additional info. Lovely article.

  3. Quite interesting. I’ve never heard of humectants but I’m interested in finding quality beauty products. Skincare is important to me but I’ve always focused on Western beauty products. The glass skin concept is new too, but I can see where it gets its name from. People with beautiful skin do look like they have “glass skin.”
