The latest Korean beauty trend is trying to accomplish exactly what its name suggests – a complexion with a sheen like a pane of glass. Glass skin, which evolved from a multiple-step dedication to achieving a youthful complexion, is a long-term commitment that promises to lead you to smooth, hydrated, seemingly transparent skin.
One beauty guru has committed to achieving glass skin and her skincare routine has gone viral. Ellie Choi, an aspiring makeup artist, revealed every step of her skincare routine on social media – and people were interested.
The Instagram post has over 30,000 likes and is still gaining more social media attention. Why? Probably because her complexion is everything you thought glass skin would look like and her natural glow is what usually can only be achieved using a ton of dewy highlighter. But what’s her secret? Choi shared everything you need to know to achieve glass skin and I’ve broken it down step-by-step…
Step 1: Cleansing. Every night, Choi starts off by taking off her makeup using Neutrogena’s Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes. But cleansing once isn’t enough to achieve glass skin…
Step 2: Choi then washes her face with one of two cleansers. She points out that the more affordable option is Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Cleanser, which retails under $10, but that she loves Kiehl’s facial cleanser as well.
Step 3: Next step, toner. Choi says she uses Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 after face wash to “remove any remaining dirt and oil.”
Step 4: After toning comes moisturizer! Choi instructs to put on a “decent amount” and says she loves Wonjin Effects’ Water Bomb Cream but lists Cetaphil’s Moisturizing Cream as a cost-friendly alternative.
