Since the beginning of 2021, clear skin is something everyone wants to attain. Unlike the heavy makeup trend of the 2010s, the 2020s focuses on more clean, natural looks combining Korean and Western beauty trends. It’s not surprising that skincare routines have gone viral on several platforms such as Tiktok and Instagram being the main forces for this ongoing trend. What is glass skin? Glamour’s Sarah Wu claims that “Glass skin” is a phrase that originated on the K-beauty scene and quickly went viral on social media. It’s used to describe a complexion so luminous; it could be modeled from glass.” While researching this topic, I discovered Alicia Yoon, founder of Peach and Lily claims that in order to obtain this complexion “You can’t just be hydrated and look that way. Your skin really needs to be its healthiest in all aspects. Babies have ‘see-through skin’ and that’s because their skin is still so healthy.” Hence, achieving such a luminous complexion requires a healthy and balanced lifestyle, as well as dedication to a skincare regimen that is suited for your skin type.

Face Masks can be really effective to deliver an intense moisture and nourishment to the skin. When purchasing face masks, its important to get sheet masks that are infused with ultra-moistuizing ingredients that improve the appearance of pores and reduce redness for illuminating glass skin. Mediheal Tea-Tree Essential Blemish Control Sheet Mask is one of the best face masks that have partnered with iconic K-Pop band BTS. This mask is infused with tee tree oil to help with redness and any blemishes on the skin. Dermatolgists recommend that face masks should be incorptored into your skincare routine once or twice a week. Masking should follow up with cleansing, toning, and applying essence to provide an extra layer of moisture to help prepare the skin for makeup or before bed.
