What Is "Glass Skin"? How to Get the New K-Beauty Trend

It means skin that looks clear, poreless, translucent, [and] luminous — like a piece of glass," they added.


By Kaleigh Fasanella, Allure

I was first introduced to the Korean beauty term, "glass skin," one average evening commute home whilst listening to my favorite beauty podcast, Fat Mascara. When their guest, Peach & Lily's Alicia Yoon, brought the expression up as if it were something everyone and their mother knows about — but more than that, explained that it's what everyone in Korea covets — my ears instantly perked up. So when Refinery29 brought the K-beauty trend to my attention yet again, I knew it was time to do a deep dive.

Thanks to my friends at Glow Recipe, it didn't take long to get a primer on this glass skin business. "Glass skin is a skin ideal in Korea," said founders Sarah Lee and Christine Chang matter-of-factly. "It means skin that looks clear, poreless, translucent, [and] luminous — like a piece of glass," they added.

Interesting, no? (Sounds like all I've ever dreamed of for my own visage, tbh.) So how does one actually obtain said glass skin? According to Lee and Chang, it's all in the layering. Similar to the "7 Skin Method" — another big K-beauty moniker you should all be aware of — you want to use multiple lightweight layers of hydrating products so that skin looks ~dewy and plump akin to a baby's bottom.

What's more? Lee and Chang explained that you can achieve the glass skin appearance by strobing with your skin-care. (This is 2017, don't tell me you're surprised.) They suggest the glow-enhancing Vita Propolis Ampoule by LJH, which happens to be available at Target now for your convenience.

[post_ads]Both women also recommend a brand they offer called Yuripibu, which actually directly translates to "glass skin" as well as products like Artichoke Essence and Cucu Black Truffle Serum, which they say are created with the glass-like skin goal in mind.

I'll be honest: This is making me strongly consider a major skin-care overhaul — the kind in which I swap out all my current products for Korean serums and essences in the hopes of someday being a proud bearer of "glass skin." (Sounds so fancy, huh?) Stay tuned!
