Clear, luminous, dewy-looking skin is what everyone wishes to achieve when they start their skincare journey. But getting a radiant complexion doesn’t take overnight. So if you’re wondering how to achieve glass skin, you’ve come to the right place.

6 Ways You Can Achieve Glass Skin

Here, we’ll show you steps you can take to get closer to your skin goals. Achieving glass skin is not like magic, where you’ll instantly look flawless after one routine. Instead, it requires consistency and effort.

1.     Double cleanse

A clean canvas is essential to start your skincare routine. Make sure to get a cleanser suitable for your skin type that isn’t too harsh on your skin. You can also double cleanse with micellar water or an oil cleanser to eliminate dirt, pollutants, and traces of makeup.

2.     Use a toner

Layering is the key to achieving hydrated skin, which is necessary for glass skin. You can best accomplish this with toners. They regulate the skin’s pH level and allow the following products in your routine to absorb more effectively.

3.     Use essences and serums

Serums and essences (less concentrated serums) are potent skincare products targeting specific skin concerns. They are loaded with antioxidants and work towards protecting your barrier from free radicals.

Essences and serums are effective carriers of active compounds, and using one with sakura can help you achieve glass skin. A  that contains Japanese Sakura essence can promote skin smoothness and restore the skin barrier, resulting in plumper skin.

4.     Moisturize

In any anti-aging skincare routine, moisturizers are non-negotiable. They smoothen fine lines and wrinkles. When you’re working for that luminescent look, it’s especially crucial to get a lightweight and effective moisturizer. Look for botanical extracts, hydrators, and antioxidants. Slathering an even layer of moisturizer over your face and letting it absorb fully increases its efficacy.

5.     Apply sunscreen

UV rays can penetrate the windows of a house or car. Don’t let your skincare efforts and consistency go to waste by exposing yourself to the sun’s damaging rays. Instead, protect your complexion all day with a generous amount of sunscreen.

Getting sunblock boosted with Vitamin C is a bonus in fading spots. They can shield your skin from UVA/UVB rays, which causes skin darkening and dullness. In addition, a broad-spectrum sunscreen will guard against fine lines, wrinkles, and brown spots.

6.     Try face masks

K-beauty has introduced some of the best skincare inventions ever, but masks are arguably the ones the world is most obsessed with. Clay masks can clean and reduce the appearance of pores without drying or irritating skin. Sheet masks can hydrate and give you an instant glow.

Similarly, treatments with calming ingredients like honey provide skin with moisture and calm inflammation. Masks are probably the easiest way to soothe the skin, repair damage, and lock in moisture right when you need it.

Additional Tips When Making Lifestyle Changes

Achieving glass skin is also a lifestyle change. Here are lifestyle tips that complement your skincare efforts.

1.     Eat a balanced diet.

They say you are what you eat. A healthy diet is vital for your skin. If you’re serious about getting that lit-from-within glow, eat healthily. Fruits and vegetables are high in antioxidants. They’ll help your body fight free radicals and fuel your skin with anti-aging benefits.

2.     Stay hydrated

Dry skin may cause your body to pump out excess sebum, triggering or worsening acne. Fortunately, water isn’t only hydrating, but it can also reduce your blemishes by fighting-off dry skin.

3.     Get more rest

Lack of sleep can result in undereye circles, fine lines, and dull skin. On the other hand, a good night’s sleep will improve your blood flow, rebuild collagen, and rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. Set a regular bedtime routine and wash your face before bed to make sure you get a good night’s sleep.

The Bottom Line

Glass skin and the quest to retain a luminous, translucent glow have been a popular movement ever since. And it is no passing trend either. So get that lit-from-within complexion starting with a balanced lifestyle and a dedication to a consistent skincare regimen.
