1. Definition of Glass Skin

Glass skin means clear, smooth, luminous, seemingly transparent skin, and it first went viral in 2017. Therefore it’s almost like the skin is “glass”.





2. 7 Steps to get Glass Skin

#1 Double Cleansing

This refers to removing the makeup either with an oil cleanser, cleansing balm or even a makeup removing wipe, and then cleansing with a regular water-based cleanser or foam cleanser.

#2 Scrub

This step is done a handful times a week, and it’s basically the same as exfoliating. To know more about the different exfoliation check our article about Physical vs Chemical Exfoliation. 

#3 Toner

Toner is super important and a step you should never miss. We’ve already written an article about toner and it’s importance.

#4 Essence

While for many people essence is optional, some essences have very good uses for all types of skin types.

#5 Serum or Ampoule

You can choose either serum or ampoule, use both, or choose to only use one a few times a week or when you only really need it.

#6 Moisturizer

Moisturizing your skin is of high importance, so you should always use a good moisturizer that works well with your skin type and skin concerns.

#7 Sheet Mask

A sheet mask should only be used generally 1-2 times a week, and worn for no more than ~20 minutes. Sheet masks have different ingredients and uses, such as moisturizing, brightening or even anti-aging.
