There’s a reason why women all over the world are fascinated with glass skin. There’s more to it than what meets the eye. This skincare trend has its roots in Korea and has since then transformed the skincare game of Indian women as well.
Glass skin is a term for exceptionally smooth, even-toned and lustrous skin that’s so flawless that it appears like glass. It aims to moisturize skin that gives off an almost transparent complexion and a youthful glow. However, to achieve the glass skin look you don’t have to shell out thousands of your money on Korean products. Some of the best collection of Indian skincare products can help you nail the Desi Glass Skin look. Read on to know about the step-by-step guide on how to achieve clear, glowing, glass-like skin.
You might find it surprising that double cleaning is part of the traditional Asian skincare routine. A clean canvass is a must when it comes to your skin care routine, especially at night when your face has collected all that dirt, grease and makeup residue. Start with a cleansing oil or micellar water for your first cleanse, then follow with a gentle vitamin C face wash to incorporate the maximum benefits of the orange extract into your skin.
We can’t talk clear and smooth skin without mentioning exfoliation. This step will slough away dead skin cells that dull skin and clog pores. However, do not overdo it and kindly throw away all your chemical laden exfoliating products. You should invest in a silk cocoon face scrub which consists sericin, known for gently cleaning your skin whilst lending a brightened look.
Masking is essential for the pursuit of achieving the glass skin look. Ideally you can look for clay masks as these are great for Indian skin. The variants mostly include Kaolin clay, bentonite clay mask, etc. that are known for having excellent brightening ingredients. Since exfoliation cleanses your palate, you can steam your face to open up the pores and apply the mask thoroughly. Then clean it off with water to reveal a glowing and healthy skin.
Traditional toners are often ignored because some find them to be too drying, but when it comes to achieving the glass skin look, they take on an entirely different role. Look for the Desi Rose Water toner which is formulated with refreshing and moisture-enhancing ingredients and helps to restore the skin’s pH levels but also to provide base hydration and allow better absorption of oncoming products.
Moisturizing is a no-brainer in any skin care routine, but when you’re aiming for that luminescent look, you’ll want to reach for one that is lightweight yet packs maximum moisture. Look for nourishing botanical extracts, powerful hydrators and antioxidants. The brightening radiance day cream works well because of its healing, anti-aging and barrier-restoring properties.
Face oils are optional. If you have dry skin, then you can definitely opt for this step. Ideally look for variants that works as spot treatment. Vitamin E essential oil is great for all skin types and works to improve the texture as well. Therefore, use it on specific areas or all over the face and neck after moisturizing with a cream, to provide the much needed hydration to the skin.
The quest for a glass-like complexion is really just another way of striving for clear, healthy and youthful-looking skin. However, you can find the best collection of affordable products that won’t cost a bomb and will help you to look like a luminescent queen.
