We all want silky and glowy skin, I mean, who wouldn’t?


And thanks to Korean beauty, we already have a term for that – glass skin!

It’s a term for exceptionally smooth and even-toned skin that’s so flawless it almost looks like glass. Glass skin focuses on intense moisturization to give almost a translucent and youthful complexion to your skin.


Okay, now that we all totally want glass skin, here’s a beauty regimen to help you get the perfect lit-from-within glow without the makeup!


1. Double cleanse

Double cleansing used to scare women away, but it’s actually really helpful to achieve clear and youthful skin. Cleansing your skin twice ensures that all the dirt on your skin is washed away. This is most especially helpful at night after a long day of wearing makeup and being exposed to smoke and pollution. You can cleanse your face with cleansing oil or micellar water, and then follow up with a foam or cream cleanser.


Here are our top picks:

Darphin Azahar Cleansing Micellar Water for All Skin Types

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleansing Oil

Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser

Dermalogica Ultracalming Cleanser

2. Exfoliate every two days

Exfoliating should not be part of your everyday routine as it might strip away all of your skin’s natural oils. If you've got oily skin it is imperative, however, to do it every after two days or so to make sure you get rid of dead skin. When you’re feeling a little extra dry, or you feel like your skin is feeling rough, you can use an exfoliator to buff the dead skin away to reveal smooth and renewed skin.


Here are our faves:

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant

Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Refiner Cream with Microbeads


3. Use a toner

Toners are essential to achieve the glass skin look. Often, toners are skipped because they can become too drying. There are toners, however, that do the opposite. Some toners are infused with refreshing and moisturizing ingredients that will help enhance the glow of your skin. It also gets rid of the extra dirt clinging on to your skin that your cleanser and exfoliator failed to remove. Toners also help restore your skin’s pH levels to provide better hydration and to prep your skin for better absorption of your other skincare products.


Here are our top recommendations:

Biotherm Biosource 24H Hydrating and Tonifying Toner

Sisley Grapefruit Toning Lotion

4. Apply your favorite essence or serum

Essence and serums are similar products, but they have a few differences. Essence is the less-concentrated relative of serums, but that doesn’t mean it’s lesser in any way. Essences tend to be more lightweight and watery in consistency, but they are formulated to address specific skin concerns such as redness and pigmentation while providing intense moisture to your skin.

Serums, on the other hand, are filled with multitasking active ingredients. They are much more concentrated; therefore, it helps nourish the skin, reverse the signs of aging, promote collagen production, even out skin tone, and also minimize your pores.

Applying either essence or a serum ensures your skin locks in the moisture while adding more skincare benefits.


Here’s what we absolutely love:

Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Vitality Facial Serum

Christian Dior One Essential Intense Skin Detoxifying Booster Serum

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recover Complex II

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Antioxidant Infusion Essence


5. Moisturize your skin

Moisturizers are a staple in a skincare routine. You can’t do a beauty regimen without it. If you want a translucent and luminescent look, you might want to go for products with a lightweight formula that packs in maximum moisture.


You’ll surely love these:

Clinique Superdefense Night Recovery Moisturizer

Cowshed Neroli Nourishing Daily Moisturizer

6. Pack on the eye cream

The skin around your eyes is a little more delicate compared to the rest of your face. That’s why they need extra love and care, as well. Glass skin isn’t just about glowy skin; your under eyes should not be dry and baggy too! Gently apply your eye cream using your ring finger in the area around your eyes to nourish it!


Here are the products we got our eyes on:

Burt’s Bees Sensitive Eye Cream

Clinique All About Eyes Rich     


7. End it with a face mask

Last but definitely not the least, face masks! Using facing masks at the end of your beauty regimen ensures you’ll lock in all of the benefits you get from every product you used. It also soothes tired skin, repairs damage, and replenishes your skin!


Our holy grails:

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

Eye Lom Moisture Mask
