Korean beauty (or K-Beauty, as it is often referred to) is one of the more intense beauty markets in the world. Mentioned in lots more detail in a previous article on the K-beauty industry, both the women and men of Korea are the biggest cosmetic spenders on the planet. In fact, Korean women spend, on average, twice as much as American women, despite products costing immeasurably less.

With many Korean women using a strict daily skincare routine, which can include up to ten stages, skincare products, make-up and all things cosmetics are essential in their quest for beauty perfection.

Although hundreds of common beauty trends coming out of Korea are make-up related, skincare itself and the actual idea of a specific skin ideal is actually the latest and biggest craze emerging from that side of the world.

You may have heard of glass skin โ€“ a beauty trend sweeping the likes of Instagram recently. But what actually is it? And are we Brits going to be joining the pursuit of glass skin perfection anytime soon?

Clear skin is most likely the goal within any culture. However, the glass skin trend takes this premise to a whole new level. This trend is all about complete and utter clarity and clearness within the facial skin. Translucency and ensuring complete eradication of pores, never mind a lowly blemish across one cheek, is essential.

This beauty trend is not one you can achieve instantly. The luminous glow of the glass skin followers is not down to simply the application of heavy make-up and foundation. No โ€“ this trend comes down to daily dedication to the quality and overall health of one’s skin. This means double cleansing to ensure complete removal of every inch of make-up and daily grime, toning, moisturising and using serums and face masks often and consistently to achieve this crystal clear complexion.

The glass skin trend actually derives from the more widely known, in Korea, Honey Skin. In Korea, honey-like skin is a great compliment, meaning healthy, dewy, almost baby-like skin, still sporting that unmistakably, extra-shiny vibe. Honey skin focuses more on nourishment and the health of the skin using organic or natural ingredients and products, whereas glass skin is all about the finished look and texture of the skin. Honey skin could also be slightly on the greasier side for some, in terms of a worldwide trend takeover.

Products filled with nourishing and hydrating goodness are highly recommended if youโ€™re considering attempting to jump on this Korean band-wagon; think rich oils, moisturisers, toners and thick serums. Here are a few that you might want to give a go to help you in your quest for dewier-looking skin:

The goal of glass or honey skin can be worked towards in similar ways. Itโ€™s all about strict and regimented cleansing routines, blended with layering the most hydrating products onto your skin to created dewy, plump and lustrously healthy skin.
