How to Achieve Dewy Glass Skin?
What is glass skin?
If there is a skin or a makeup trend that remains evergreen and relevant throughout the years, it would be the natural glowing skin look. In recent years, the Korean “glass skin” look is a skincare trend that has blown up worldwide. Crystal-clear looking skin, which resembles a piece of glass, is what the glass skin trend is all about. Ladies around the world follow an intensive skincare routine to achieve the poreless, dewy skin with a natural-looking glow.
There are natural ways to achieve natural glowing skin, such as making sure that you stay well hydrated at all times, maintain a diet that includes a lot of vegetables and fruits that contain a lot of antioxidants and get enough sleep.
That aside, there are other ways to achieve and ‘cheat’ that look through dewy skin products. Here is a handy guide as to how to get glowing and dewy skin through both skincare and makeup.
The glass skin skincare routine
A skincare regime that hydrates and nourishes the skin enough will allow it to shine through, and you’ll find that once you nail a skincare routine that compliments your skin well, you would hardly need any makeup to achieve that glow—because it is all-natural!
As a general tip, it is advisable to spray on a light mist such as the My Clarins RE-FRESH Hydrating Beauty Mist, which prepares your skin for any treatments and boosts its glow. Once or twice a week, have a go at the One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser which will scrub away dead skin cells and make way for new and glowing skin.
Incorporate hydrating skincare products and dewy skin products into your routine, such as the Hydra-Essentiel Light Cream. It is formulated especially for Asian skin, which is typically exposed to tropical summers. This lightweight texture and formula deliver intensive moisture all day while keeping the skin protected from external aggressors that may cause dehydration.
If you’re looking for oil-based products to add to your moisturiser or other treatments for an added glow, treatment oils such as the Santal Face Treatment Oil, Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil or the Lotus Oil would be ideal.
The Vitamin C-rich Bright Plus Serum, on the other hand, is a brightening serum that harnesses the oxygenating power of Rose-myrtle and Acerola seed extracts to deliver an oxygen shot to the skin. What’s even better is that it will also work to eradicate any spots that appear on the skin for a flawless finish.
Get the dewy, glass skin look with makeup
The glass skin look can be easily achieved by selecting the right type of makeup. Not every product can make the cut, as the focus should be on ones that are specifically dewy, hydrating makeup products for that natural-looking glow.
First on the list is a dewy foundation that would mimic that enviable glow, such as the Skin Illusion SPF15, for that hydrated yet bare skin effect. It leaves the skin fresh, silky and natural, providing the illusion that it is your real skin that is indeed glowing.
However, be sure to apply a primer before this dewy foundation—or any other foundation for that matter—because it would help the foundation stick to the skin the entire day, while also keeping the skin’s natural oil in check. After all, you wouldn’t want to look overly dewy or oily. One such primer would be the Instant Poreless, which will create a smooth canvas for the foundation while also blocking excess shine.
Compliment the whole glass skin look with a nourishing lip oil like the Lip Comfort Oil that’s infused with the potent power of plant oils, enhancing your features like never before. You should also use a concealer that doubles as a highlighter, like the Instant Light Brush-On Perfector on the high points of your face where it naturally catches the light. By the end of this, you should be ready to shine!
