Glass skin is a trend that started in K-Beauty with the goal of having your skin look like, well, glass: shiny, poreless, and translucent.
Some say that you can only achieve this look if you do a 10 or 11 step skincare routine, and others (ahem, me) think that all it takes is a few really good products to get the job done (I'm looking at you, Peach & Lily Glass Skin Refining Serum). According to the creator of this HG of mine, Alicia Yoon, your skin needs the following if you ever want to get to glass status; "proper cleansing, exfoliating, balancing, antioxidants, humectants, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and protection!" She adds that if you don't want to take all these steps (even we admit it's a lot), the most important things to do are to double cleanse, so an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser, and to keep your skin hydrated.
