How to Get The Glass Skin Effects Using The 10 Steps Korean Skincare?
Before I start, I want to tell you guys that the 10 steps Korean skincare do not work for everyone. I know for some people if you apply too many products on your face, you’ll start to break out. For me, personally, it has worked extremely well. And my skin has improved so much. In this articles, I’m going to show you guys step by step on what I did to achieve the glass skin effect. Let’s start!
The 10 Steps Korean Skincare
1. Oil-based cleanser (I’m using Innisfree Green Tea moisture cleansing oil)
Just before you start make sure you have removed your makeup. The first step is to use an oil-based cleanser. Here I’m using the Innisfree green tea moisture cleansing oil. If I’m wearing makeup I would first use a makeup wipe to remove my makeup first. An oil-based cleanser is more likely to remove your makeup than a water-based cleanser. It also keeps your face hydrated and doesn’t dry at your skin. Pump out some product and then massage it all over your face to remove any makeup residue off your face. And now your glass effect look is finished. Yes, look at that shine girl! No just wash it off, please! Wash the cleanser off your face with some warm water and then pat your face dry with a towel.
2. Water-based cleanser (I’m using Etude House baking powder pore cleansing foam)
Next step is to use a water based cleanser. Here I’m using the Etude House baking powder pore cleansing foam. I’d like to use a foam net as it is more gentle on your face. Just squeeze out a little bit of product, wet your net and rubber against the product to create the foam. Once the foam has formed, pull on a net to extract the foam and then massage this around your face. So we are using two cleansers because we are going to double cleanse. The water-based cleanser is to remove any impurities from your face to give yourself a clean base. By cleansing twice, your skin would definitely be a lot cleaner and will ensure that you have removed excess makeup from your face
3. Exfoliate using Skin Food black sugar mask wash off
After we’ve double cleansed, we are going to exfoliate. Here, I’m using the Skin Food black sugar mask wash off. It smells amazing as it contains ingredients. Such as organic black sugar that nourishes the skin and creates a really smooth clean complexion. Make sure your face is wet first, before applying the product. So it is more gentle for your skin and doesn’t scratch it. Sweep, add a bit of product, and then gently massage it all over your face. Exfoliating gets rid of dead skin to brighten your skin. This step should not be done every day as it would damage your skin and most only do it about two times a week I. Lastly to mask on for a couple of minutes, and then wash off the mask with some warm water.
4. Etude House Moistfull Collagen Toner
Next, we are going to be using the Etude House Moistfull collagen toner. Now that your face is clean. We are going to start putting on products that your skin can absorb. First I’m going to be using a toner which helps balance the pH level of your skin. This toner provides moisture and lays my skin feeling really soft and ready for Absorption for the next few products, I’m about to apply.
5. The COSR X Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
Next step is Essence. I’m going to be using the COSR X Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. This product contains now Mason, which helps repair your skin in areas that have dry patches and to help reduce hyper-pigmentation. This is apparently one of the most important steps to the skincare routine according to Korean women.
Next is serum. Serum is like a more concentrated version of Essence. Here I’m using the Innisfree the green tea seed serum. This product gives your skin a lot of moisture and hydrates your skin from within. It gives you a brighter skin tone and also evens out your skin tone. The surround targets the bulk of your skincare issues and is a very important step.
7. Face mask using the Innisfree
Next step is face mask. I’m going to be using the Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask. I don’t use a face mask every single day, perhaps only once every two to three days I would use it. A sheet mask allows your skin to absorb nutrients and moisture. I love applying face masks on days where my face is feeling especially dry as it. Instantly gives me much brighter skin and makes my skin feel so much more moisturized. One thing I need to say is that don’t wear the mask for too long, only wear it for about 10 to 15 minutes.
If you wear the mask for too long it actually starts sucking moisture from your skin when the mask dries up. Once your master time is up just put a mask off and then let the moisture set into your skin it might take a while. So just keep painting yourself
8. Eye cream using the Innisfree green tea seed eye cream
Next is eye cream for eye cream. I’m using the Innisfree green tea seed eye cream especially. Since I am getting older I’m trying to keep my skin looking young so I’ve been using a lot of eye creams lately. I use this on areas where wrinkles are more likely to form it is very important to keep those areas. Hydrated by tapping a product in those spots this product contains antioxidants that provide hydration and nourishment to your skin.
9. Apply a moisturizer using the Etude House Moistfull collagen moisturizer
Now we are going to apply a moisturizer all over our face to keep our face hydrated. I’m using the Etude House Moistfull collagen moisturizer. This is one of my favorite creams as it keeps my skin hydrated, smooth, and makes it feel bouncy after using it.
10. The final step, using sunscreen
For the final step, it depends on if you’re going out or going to bed. If I’m going out I’ll be using sunscreen, but because I’m going to bed I’m using the sleeping mask. So I’m going to be using the Laneige water sleeping mask. This helps my skin overnight as it helps lock in the moisture while I’m sleeping. And There you have it.
That is a 10-step Korean skincare routine, So I just want to tell you guys, I don’t do all 10 steps every single day. Sometimes I substitute those steps. Sometimes I don’t even do them at all in particular day. But this is how I achieve this glass look effect on my skin without any makeup. It is quite a time consuming to do the skincare routine every single day, but I think that once you got a good routine going, your skin would definitely love you for it.
