K-beauty routine: How to create the glass skin effect
Udgivet: 27-03-2024
The glass skin trend is here to stay, because why would dewy, luminous, translucent skin ever go out of style? Continue reading to find out how to build your own glass skin routine and achieve that sought-after glass-like complexion.
What is glass skin?
The term "glass skin" refers to skin that is exceptionally clear, luminous, and translucent, resembling the appearance of glass. This concept originated from Korean beauty trends, particularly the term "honey skin," which emphasises healthy, dewy skin with intense hydration. While "honey skin" focuses on nourishing the skin internally, "glass skin" emphasises the external appearance and texture of the skin. Ultimately, both terms aim for a plump, moisturised complexion indicative of good skin health.
From a physiological standpoint, achieving a translucent and dewy look is influenced by the skin's overall health. Roughness caused by an excess of dead skin cells or slow cell turnover can lead to dullness. However, the primary factor in attaining translucent skin is adequate hydration. Therefore, maintaining skin moisture is essential for achieving the desired glass-like appearance.
How to build a glass skin routine?
Those familiar with the K-Beauty world know the importance of layering your skincare products, and achieving glass skin is no exception. That being said, you can always tailor your routine to fit your needs. It all comes down to effective cleansing and adding extra layers of sumptuous hydration to get that dewy, glass-like complexion. Here's a suggested routine to help you achieve glass skin:

STEP 1: Double cleanse Kickstart your routine with a double cleanse, a crucial step for maintaining healthy skin. Double cleansing gets rid of both oil-based impurities that contribute to clogged pores, and water-based impurities like sweat and old skin cells that can make our skin look dull. For double cleansing, start with Novage+ Comfort Oil-to-Milk Cleanser and follow up with Novage+ Refresh Gel Cleanser. For a more thorough cleanse, consider incorporating the SkinPro Sonic 3-in-1 System, a cleansing brush that is clinically proven to be more effective than manual cleansing.
STEP 2: Face mist After cleansing, treat your skin to a hydrating face mist as the second step in your glass skin routine. Optimals Urban Guard 3D Mist provides a refreshing boost of hydration thanks to its Nordic spruce antioxidants. This face mist can also be used as a moisture top-up during the day, especially in dry climates or indoor environments with air conditioning or heating.

STEP 3: Skin essence Introduce a skin essence into your routine to add an extra layer of hydration and nourishment. Opt for NovAge Skin Priming Essence after cleansing to promote cell turnover and reduce the appearance of pores. For an authentic K-beauty experience, adopt the 7-skin method by gently patting drops of essence onto your skin with your fingertips, one drop at a time up to 7 layers. This method may seem time-consuming, but applying the essence drop by drop allows for better absorption, while the patting motion invigorates the skin.
STEP 4: Anti-ageing eye cream While the skin around your eyes may not seem as important to a glass skin look, dark circles and under-eye bags can really impact the end result, so don’t forget your eye cream! We recommend using Novage+ Bright Intense Eye Cream, formulated with Bio Activating Technologies to reduce signs of hyperpigmentation and the appearance of dark circles.
STEP 5: Supercharged hydration Did you know that Polyglutamic Acid delivers four times more efficient moisturisation than Hyaluronic Acid? Since glass skin is all about hydration, what could be a better addition to your routine than these Novage+ Intense Hydration Power Drops? Simply apply 2-3 drops of the booster directly onto your face and gently massage it into the skin.
STEP 6: Face oil for dry skin If you have dry skin, we suggest applying a dry face oil like Novage+ Facial Oil Capsules after the hydration booster. This is a great complement for dry skin types that not only lack moisture on the surface but also require replenishment of essential fats to fortify the skin barrier. Apply the capsules to ensure your skin receives the nourishment it needs for a radiant, glass-like complexion.
STEP 7: Hydrating moisturiser Seal in the nourishing hydration by applying a lightweight gel-based day cream. We suggest Optimals Hydra Radiance Day Cream infused with Vitamin C and antioxidants derived from brown-green algae. This cream offers all-day hydration, boosts radiance, and helps balance facial shine, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and revitalised.
STEP 8: Face mask and face peel While face masks and peels shouldn't be a part of your daily routine, incorporating them a few times a week can deliver some great benefits. A peel effectively removes dead skin cells and increases cell turnover that could otherwise build up and make your skin look dull. Consider using NovAge Skin Renewing Peel twice a week to reveal smoother, more radiant skin. Additionally, an overnight mask replenishes lost hydration, ensuring your skin remains moisturised and revitalised. For optimal results, incorporate Novage+ Intense Skin Recharge Overnight Mask into your night-time routine several times a week. These treatments complement your glass skin routine, helping to maintain moisture and promote skin health.
