Ready to discover the secret to achieving flawless, radiant skin? Look no further than the latest Korean beauty trend – glass skin. If you’re searching for the best products and skincare regime to help you achieve that sought-after glow, you’ve come to the right place.
At AP Skincare, we’re experts in skincare treatments, and we specialise in clinician-led care for your skin, which means we always have a few tips and tricks of our own to share! So, here’s everything you need to know about this beauty phenomenon and how you can make it work for you.
Every great skincare routine starts with cleansing – but what if we told you there’s an even better way to start off your skincare? Depending on your skin type and how much makeup and products you use on your face, you may have stumbled across the term double cleansing. Double cleansing is just washing your face twice in one go!
There’s no right and wrong way to double cleanse, but the preferred method is generally to wash your face with an oil-based cleanser, which removes the remnants of your makeup, SPF, bacteria and oiliness from your face. Then immediately after, go in again with another cleanser (suited to your skin type) and wash your face a second time. The result is a more thorough cleanse.
Not everyone needs to double cleanse, especially those with sensitive skin. But if you have oily skin, it’s a fantastic way to ensure you don’t have any build-up on your face. You don’t need to do it every single day and night, but if you’ve had a full day of heavy makeup or you’ve been applying SPF all day, it’s an excellent way to get rid of all those products before bed.
It’s all about exfoliation! By getting rid of dead skin, you’re not only improving your face’s overall appearance, but also boosting the effectiveness of your skincare routine. The product will be able to sink much deeper into the skin, and you’ll get better results because of it! It’s important not to exfoliate every day as it can irritate your skin. Exfoliating two or three times a week is enough to see the benefits!
When you’re done washing and exfoliating your face, it’s time to start your skincare routine. This is a key part of achieving the glass-skin look. First, use a refreshing toner to help maintain your skin’s pH balance. Then, especially at night, if you have time, a sheet mask will work wonders for your skin if you can squeeze them into your routine a few times a week. Choose something hydrating! And here’s a top tip for sheet masks – when removing them, make sure to squeeze out the remainder of the product from the sheet and apply it liberally to your face and neck. This way you can really get the most out of the product.
The next step is serums. Getting perfect glass skin is all about staying hydrated and brightening your complexion. The two serums that are perfect for this are hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. Hyaluronic acid helps maintain your skin hydration and makes your skin look more plump and healthy. Vitamin C, on the other hand, helps to brighten and even out your skin tone – an essential step in getting glowy glass skin. Vitamin C is also great at reducing the appearance of any hyperpigmentation or any dark spots. These serums are safe to use simultaneously, so you can work them into your daily skincare routine. Consistent use of these products is also great for your skin barrier!
It goes without saying that no good skincare routine is complete without a good moisturiser and SPF combo. Whether you choose to use two separate products or one combined product, it’s essential to use both to achieve that glowy glass skin look. They will hydrate and protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays and add an extra layer of glow to your routine.
Achieving the glass skin look won’t happen overnight, but if you persevere with your skincare routine and keep on top of your SPF, you’ll start seeing results. And in the meantime, make use of glowy skin tints and makeup! To speed up the process, why not visit us at AP Skincare?
