Transparent

Our favourite trend to come out of major beauty-influencer Korea, has to be glass skin, which first came onto the global scene two years ago but is still making waves! Here’s how to get it using SP skincare.

What is Glass Skin?
Glass skin is all about making the skin as luminous, glowing and clear as possible. While makeup is definitely involved in achieving that final glassy look, things really start to come together at the skincare stage. So, where do you start?

First of all, it’s about assessing the state of the skin – are there large pores, or is there an issue with active acne or scarring? These are things that can be dealt with around Step 4 (below). Whatever the starting point, the first step to glass skin is all about the cleanse.

Step 1: Take it all off with our Micellar Water Cleanser. This is our top-seller for a reason! It’s a great first step to cleansing – but also makes a fab second cleanse if you’ve gone in with an oil-based product first. If you’re using it as a first cleanse, make sure to follow up with a gel-based cleansing gel. If you use the oil first, go in with the Micellar Water after. Basically, you MUST cleanse twice!

Step 2: Next, take your pick from our selection of toners; Normal/Dry, Sensitive, Combination or Dry/Plus+. If you’re not sure which one to go for, opt for Sensitive, as it suits every type of skin, or go for Combination, as it contains Witch Hazel, an amazing natural toner. We’ve also got the gorgeous scented Orange Flower Water – again, great for sensitive skin. Swipe over the skin swiftly and gently for the first dose of hydration.

Step 3: Hydrate! Choose the right moisturiser for your – or your clients’ – skin and apply a generous amount. Really massage it in to get skin glowing. Next, follow up with SPF. That’s a no-brainer.

Step 4: Every other day, add this fourth step in. Apply a hydrating or detoxing face mask, depending on what the skin needs. This extra step will ensure that all the other efforts you’re making don’t go to waste! Try our Facial Exfoliant at least once a week, and then mix up a hydrating detox mask from our Kaolin Clay, Glycerin and Rose Water on the other masking days.
