KOREAN GLASS SKIN
PKMH Skin 101
Because of its stunning results, K-beauty, or Korean beauty, is a sensation right now. And what we frantically attempt to obtain is the well-known Korean Glass Skin.
If you're a lover of Korean beauty and can't wait to master the glass skin trend, here's an easy step-by-step instruction to help you out.
WHAT IS A KOREAN GLASS SKIN ROUTINE?
The glass skin routine is a step-by-step method to achieving perfect, dewy, almost pristine glass-like skin. It begins with products designed specifically for your skin type and includes phrases such as double cleansing, serum, lotion, moisturizer, and mist. This beauty regimen differs from others in that it does not contain astringents and instead depends on moisturizing components to keep your skin's pH balanced.
It's no surprise that this beauty regimen has piqued the interest of individuals all around the world. So, let's go over the glass skin routine steps one by one.
STEPS TO ACHIEVE KOREAN GLASS SKIN
Step 1: Double Cleanse
Double cleansing was introduced to us by Asian skincare, and we haven't looked back since. When it comes to skincare, a clean canvas is essential, especially at night when your face has accumulated all that dirt, grease, and makeup residue. Use a cleansing oil or micellar water as your initial cleanser, then follow with a gentle foam wash or cream cleanser.
Step 2: Exfoliate
Exfoliation is a must when it comes to clear, smooth skin. This step will slough away dead skin cells that dull skin and clog pores, whether you use a physical exfoliator (such as crushed walnuts or soft jojoba beads) or a chemical exfoliant (such as glycolic or lactic acid). But don't go overboard.
Step 3: Toner
Traditional toners are typically overlooked because they are excessively drying for some people, but in Korean skincare, they have a completely different purpose. Green tea, galactomyces, ginseng, and flower water are all used in K-beauty toners, which are used not only to correct the skin's pH levels but also to offer basic hydration and allow for greater absorption of approaching products.
Step 4: Add an Essence
Essences, the less concentrated cousins of serums, have a lighter, more fluid consistency (a cross between serums and toners). They're developed to address skin issues like pigmentation and redness, but with the added benefit of giving tremendous moisture and hydration, just like targeted treatments.
Step 5: Serum or Ampoule
Ampoules, Korea's version of serums, usually include a larger concentration of multifunctional active components. These concentrated actives aid to nourish the skin, reverse symptoms of aging, and increase collagen production, all of which serve to offer firmness, minimize pores, and even skin tone. Because certain ampoules are only meant to be used for a short period of time (to solve skin emergencies), use a daily moisturiser with moisture-boosting ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and vitamin E. Vitamin C and retinoids are the most effective in promoting collagen production for structural rigidity.
Step 6: Moisturize
When it comes to skin care, moisturising is a no-brainer, but when you're going for that luminous look, you'll want to go for one that's light but packs a punch. Look for hydrating plant ingredients, antioxidants, and potent hydrators. Because of its healing, anti-aging, and barrier-restoring capabilities, Cica (short for centella asiatica or gotu kola) is a popular component in Korean skin care.
Step 7: Eye cream
If you have dry areas and bags under your eyes, you won't be able to achieve glass skin. Pollock suggests using an eye cream or serum to hydrate the delicate eye area, which is drier than the rest of your face (and that regular moisturisers may not be able to fully quench.)
Step 8: Face Oil (Daytime only)
Adding a face oil to your glass skin routine is the perfect finishing touch. It's not only a great way to hydrate and nourish your skin, but it also defends against the daily stresses that wreak havoc on our skin barrier. It also doesn't have to be a stand-alone step. Alternatively, mix a few drops into your serum or moisturizer on a daily basis. Whatever option you choose, keep in mind that it should always come last! While other layers can absorb oil, none of them can penetrate oil, so you'll be wasting perfectly good goods (unless it's SPF!).
Step 9: SPF
Consider your glass skin aspirations shattered if you don't have skin that is protected from the sun's rays. This is because, no matter how many steps you include in your skincare routine, skin that has been exposed to UV radiation will not shine. SPF is required all year. The greatest option here is one with the correct ingredients—think lightweight mixture and enough of hydration.
Step 10: Sheet masks
Although K-beauty has provided us with some of the best skin-care recommendations, masks are by far the most popular in the beauty world. It's not surprising; what's not to like about a skincare step that forces you to sit back and relax for a while? They're also the most convenient way to calm the skin, treat damage, and lock in and replenish moisture. You may have healthier skin and a brighter complexion in just 10-20 minutes.
While it takes time and dedication, most people can achieve lit-from-within skin. It isn't simply about addressing symptoms, though. It's a way of life that necessitates a holistic approach.
What you put into your body is equally as important as what you put on your face. You may achieve a glowing complexion with the appropriate regimen and a balanced diet, and you'll be able to remove the foundation in no time. Therefore one must follow these #pkmhrecommended steps and a healthy lifestyle religiously in order to achieve best results.
