How to Nail The Korean Glass Skin Trend

Mimicking the translucence of glass, Glass Skin is currently one of the most desired trends for women in Korea as it is a sign of youthfulness. In Korean term, “Mul-gwang”  is unlike most beauty trends, this natural sheen comes from a stringent skin care routine that doesn’t involve the use of much makeup. (no cheating with highlighter or base with glitters) The lesser the makeup you can use to reflect the glass-like gleam is better.

Korean women take pride in their beauty regime, so don’t think that you can achieve the trending Glass Skin trend overnight. Think of it as a committed skincare marathon, but not a short sprint. This flawless translucent, clear, clean and poreless look takes more than just layering your skin care or a hydrating mask. We show you how you can nail this glass-like gleaming shine.

The first and foremost basic step to getting your best skin is to completely remove all dirt, oil and makeup from your skin. Use a cleansing balm, oil or gel that will not strip natural oils from your skin instead of foams or soap.
