If there’s one thing the beauty industry can’t get enough of, it’s Korean skincare, as evidenced by how quickly staples like Korean sunscreens, essences, and face masks have flown off the shelves around the world.
 I always feared that getting Korean glass skin will make me look a lot oily. But I started to get over my concern of seeming overly “oily” and embrace the idea of having a complexion that looks impossibly glowing which is the result of a properly hydrated dermis rather than excessive oiliness. My introduction to Korean skin care products coincided with my discovery of my newfound fascination with a rigorous skin care regimen, and they now make up the majority of my makeup collection.

Korean glass skin
To achieve Korean glass skin, I am sharing a 5-step skin care with holy grail Korean skin care products.

1- Oil Cleanser:

Cleanser with peach and lily oil cleanser with Ginger melted in Peach & Lily
This mild oil dissolves grime, makeup, and pollutants like magic. All skin types, especially those prone to acne, can use this mild formula Oil cleanser because it is silicone-free, sulfate-free, fragrance-free, scent-free, and non-comedogenic. My evening routine now includes oil cleansing as the first step, which has improved the texture of my skin and helped with excess oil production.

2- Water-based cleanser

Niacinamide Cleansing Gelée by Naturium
With 3% niacinamide content, this unusual face wash is a cleanser that resembles an essence. It targets uneven skin tone and texture while gently removing makeup and other skin pollutants. I always opted for a foamy cleanser before incorporating K-beauty techniques into my skincare regimen, however some of them left my skin feeling dry. Swapping foam based cleansers with water based cleansers have retained moisture and water content in my skin. After using this water based cleanser my skin feels soft and incredibly nourished.

3- Exfoliator

SkinFood Rice Wash Off-Mask
Rice bran water is used in this mild yet beneficial wash-off mask to peel off dead skin cells and revitalize your skin for a healthy shine. One of the best decisions I have made in terms of my skin care regimen was
switching from physically abrasive exfoliators to chemical ones that are more effective. The international K-beauty catalogue is full of products that hit the ideal combination of physical and chemical exfoliators, like this rice mask from SkinFood. Small grains that peel off dead skin cells provide me a mild exfoliation, and rice
bran water brightens my skin.

4- Toner

Laneige Water Bank Blue
Hyaluronic Revitalizing Toner
A few years ago, I would have been startled if you had told me that I didn’t need to use a cotton pad to apply toner. But that’s also because I used to believe that all toners were astringent—meant to dry the skin and remove impurities from the pores—and had a strong alcoholic aroma. Little did I realise that there was an entire universe of hydrating K-beauty toners that I could pump into my hand and apply directly onto my face, helping all of my other serums and creams to absorb and perform better.

5- Cosrx
Cosrx Advanced Mucin Power 96 Essence Snail
Since I’m still not entirely sure what an essence is—it falls between a serum and a toner, in my opinion—I stopped asking myself questions until I discovered this cult- favourite Cosrx essence. Like most people, I was initially turned off by the notion of snail mucin. However, once I got that, I felt like heaven with one of the most
hydrating creams I’ve ever used. It absorbs into the skin, leaving it supple and glowing with moisture.
