How to get glass skin without spending thousands of pesos

Glass skin is characterized by having clear, bright, and glowing skin that beautifully catches the light and looks supple to the touch. It’s a look that can be accomplished by different skin types, even those with oily skin.

While Koreans popularized the concept, you don’t need to use Korean beauty products to achieve the look. Likewise, you don’t even need to spend a lot of money on facials, beauty gadgets, and highlighters and foundations to get “glass skin” — you can get it by just using the right skincare products. How? Keep reading to find out how you can get a #NextLevelGlassSkinGlow in 2020!

Double cleanse

Try: SNAILWHITE Whipp Soap, P295

Glass skin starts with clean, balanced skin which you can achieve with the double cleansing method. Double cleansing efficiently gets rid of dirt and other pore-cloggers thanks to two products: An oil-based cleanser that breaks down oil, makeup, and bacteria in your pores, and a water-based cleanser that removes those leftovers and whisks them all away. 

Cleansing balms, oils, and micellar waters are excellent first cleansers because they remove the bulk of the junk on your skin. Meanwhile, foaming facial washes and soaps are the perfect second cleansers as they deeply clean your skin while infusing it with nourishing ingredients for a naturally glowing and fresh finish!

Try an ice cube

Try: SNAILWHITE Icy Mask, P70/sachet and P395/6 sachets

Did you know an ice cube, the one you probably have in your freezer right now, can help you get glowing skin? This retro beauty trick entails literally rubbing an ice cube all over your face. The cold temperature improves blood circulation in your skin, making it look more healthy and radiant. Doing this not only leads to glowing skin but also tightens pores and reduces the appearance of acne! It’s also a great way to relax during warm days.

Exfoliate with a face mask

Smooth and clear skin is essential in glass skin. So every week, use a face mask or scrub after cleansing to slough off dead skin cells and oil that may have accumulated throughout the week. Doing this step on a regular (read: once or twice a week) basis will get rid of dullness, brighten post-acne spots and other forms of hyperpigmentation, and tighten your pore size; eventually leading to glowing, even-looking skin.

Layer a hydrating essence/serum/sheet mask

After all that cleansing, it’s time to add more moisture to your skin. In case you didn’t know, glass skin is a result of your complexion being well-hydrated! Applying an essence, serum, or sheet mask will boost your skin’s hydration levels and prep it for the last, most important step in your regimen, your moisturizer.

Seal everything in with a brightening moisturizer

Try: SNAILWHITE Moisture Facial Cream, P995

A brightening moisturizer will deeply hydrate your complexion while adding radiance. For a next-level glass skin glow, look for a product that contains Centella Asiatica, Niacinamide, and Snail Mucin. These three not only brighten dark marks and scars but also hydrate, repair damage, and protect your skin! Using a cream infused with these key ingredients will help you get your best skin ever.

Above all, be patient and consistent with your routine

This is the most important tip we can give you because nothing good happens overnight. To achieve anything, even a glass skin glow, you have to be patient and consistent with your skincare regimen. As much as possible, stick to your core products for a while. You can still add new eye creams and facial mists, of course, but always keep the main ones intact. Before you know it, you’ll have a next-level glass skin glow that can rival your favorite celebs’!
