There’s no denying that the Korean beauty industry has made a huge impact when it comes to our skincare regimens. We have them to thank for sheet masks, jade rollers, konjac sponges and a whole host of other goodies that help to make our skin radiant AF. For Koreans, it’s all about glowing, flawless skin, and now they’ve taken it to a whole new level of unrealistic goals with ‘glass skin’. It’s probably not going to be huge, but it is pretty amazing to look at.
What’s it about?
Glass skin is a great trend on one hand because it’s all about minimal makeup, and we’re always fans of a trend that allows us to be lazy. The downside is that it really only works on perfect, blemish-free skin, which sets yet another unattainable beauty standard. Glass skin is achieved by exfoliation (to create a smooth surface) coupled with an extremely hydrating serum to give the skin a glass-like finish. This makes it appear almost fragile and brittle. Creepy but cool.

With porcelain being the hallmark of what constitutes gorgeous skin in Korea, it makes sense that looking as though you could shatter at any minute would be a desirable look. While we’re not sure about the longevity potential of this trend, we’ll stock up on those super-moisturising serums anyway. You know, just in case.
