What is glass skin?

Glass skin is a beauty trend that reached Europe from South Korea via social media. “Glass skin” denotes an especially fine, smooth, flawless complexion reminiscent of the purity of glass.

What do you have to do to get glass skin?

Radiantly beautiful skin is a result of good skincare. A special feature of glass skin skincare is that several cleansing and skincare products are layered one on top of the other. They interact to achieve their optimal effect. This layering method cleanses the skin deep down in the pores and supplies it with nutrients, while nourishing and protecting it perfectly. The result is pure, smooth skin and a radiant complexion.Would you like to have glass skin? We have put together for you the most important skincare steps of the glass skin routine.

The glass skin routine

1. Healthy diet:

Only healthy skin can achieve glass skin purity. For this reason, a healthy diet is top of the list. Balanced whole foods with lots of fruit and vegetables, whole grains and valuable plant oils form the basis of this diet. It is important to drink sufficient fluids. Give preference to water and unsweetened teas. If you eat like this, you will feel vital and fit and it will also be reflected in your skin.

2. Gentle cleansing

The women in South Korea know that cleansing is a decisive factor in maintaining beautiful skin. They opt for double-cleansing. With double-cleansing, the skin is first gently cleansed using a cleansing oil that is lightly warmed in the hands or an oil-based cleansing milk. With the help of the oil-based products, the skin is freed from make-up residues, skin flakes and sweat. Then you wash the skin with a water-based cleanser, for example a cleansing gel or foam. After cleansing, your skin is perfectly prepared for the next step of the glass skin routine.

3. Clear the skin with the 7-skin method

The toner is next on the list. It clears the skin and delivers moisture. When prepared in this way, your skin can absorb nutrients much better. The women in South Korea use the 7-skin method. They apply toner seven times, one after the other. In this way, they optimise the effect. Only use toner without alcohol and perfume because it should not irritate the skin.

4. Peels

The next step of the glass skin routine is the peel. Peels based on fruit acid or lactic acid cleanse and stimulate the formation of new skin cells. With the peel, you achieve a finer skin texture and can reduce small wrinkles and imperfections.Face peels should not be used on a daily basis so as not to stress the skin too much. One or two peels a week are sufficient. On the other days, after clearing the skin, you simply continue with your skincare.

5. Skincare

Skincare is the next step in the glass skin routine. With serum and cream you provide your skin with valuable nutrients. Use a serum that contains
  • hyaluronic acid to lift the skin
  • vitamin C to protect and strengthen the skin
  • niacinamide to refine the pores and smooth the skin
  • collagen to strengthen the connective tissue. After the serum, apply a fatty cream as protection from environmental influences.

6. Sunscreen

You can only achieve glass skin with good sunscreen. Use sunscreen with a high SPF of at least 50. Alternatively, you can use a moisturiser with SPF.Protection from UV radiation is important at any time of year, not just in summer.

7. Make-up

If you use the glass skin routine regularly, you can almost go without make-up. With a light foundation and targeted highlighter, you can complete your porcelain complexion. Would you like even more glow? Mix your liquid highlighter into your foundation to emphasise the radiant complexion all over your face. Complete the glass skin make-up look with a (little) blusher or bronzer – it’s best to use liquid or cream products for this.


Glass skin is more than a beauty trend. The enchanting porcelain complexion of Korean women called glass skin is achieved when the skin gets what it needs. With regular use of the glass skin routine, the combination of cleansing, clearing, peels and skincare improves the skin texture. It looks finer, healthier and fresher.
