Dive into the South Korean skincare hack that has everyone talking
The beauty world is ever-evolving, constantly bringing forward innovative techniques and routines that captivate the hearts of enthusiasts worldwide. One such trend, hailing from South Korea, has made quite an impression: the illustrious 'Glass Skin'. But what exactly is it, and how can you achieve it? Dive into the ins and outs of this coveted look and discover the steps to achieve radiant skin that shines from within.
What is Glass Skin?
'Glass Skin' refers to a specific look that's characterized by smooth, flawless, luminous skin, similar to the clear and pristine surface of glass. The term originates from the Korean phrase ‘yuri pibu’, which translates to ‘glass skin’. It's not just about having skin that's free from blemishes, but skin that looks lit from within, boasting a healthy, radiant, and almost transparent appearance.
How is Glass Skin achieved?
Achieving this glossy finish isn't a matter of applying a single product or technique. The true secret behind 'Glass Skin' lies in a concept called 'skin flooding'. This method emphasizes the importance of maximal hydration by layering moisturizing and nourishing products.
- Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate: The cornerstone of the 'Glass Skin' routine is thorough hydration. Investing in a good-quality serum, preferably with hyaluronic acid, can provide deep hydration to the skin.
- Nourish: Opt for products rich in vitamins and antioxidants. These not only feed the skin but also protect it against external pollutants.
- Exfoliate Gently: Soft exfoliation helps bring out fresh, healthy skin cells, providing that desired glow. Choose mild exfoliants that do not harm or strip the skin.
- Protection: Never underestimate the power of a mineral sunscreen. Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays ensures it remains in its best condition. Choose for SPF 30 or 50 upon
Remember, beauty trends come and go, but understanding the science behind them helps make informed choices for lasting skin health. Embrace the 'Glass Skin' routine not just for the trend but for a holistic approach to skincare.

- Enhanced Barrier Function: A well-hydrated skin retains its barrier function more effectively, keeping out environmental toxins.

- Nutrient Absorption: Hydrated skin is better equipped to absorb essential nutrients from skincare products.
