We’ve started seeing the trend from Korea, but now this skin care routine aesthetic is making a big impact in the Youtube beauty community, which is the trend of “Glass Skin”. An aesthetic look that appears exactly as it sounds, where skin looks as luminous as glass in itself. So what exactly is this viral skin trend? Let’s dive deeper!
What Is “Glass Skin”?
Glass Skin,is a beauty skin care routine trend that originated from South Korea. Originally known as Yuri-Pibu(유리 피부) in Korean, Glass Skin embodies the appearance of skin that is naturally flawless without the use of makeup. To achieve the Glass Skin look, characteristics of Hydrated, Glowing, and dewy skin must be achieved accompanied with poreless, blemishless, smooth, and translucent looking skin. All in all, you want your natural skin to mimic the characteristics of glass in itself, without looking oily.
If you do not already naturally have perfect skin, then this trend can seem rather far-fetched. However, glass skin is not a trend that you can create over-night. Glass Skin is a beauty trend that should be treated as a lifestyle and a skin transformation process, as this trend can take time and effort, accompanied with the proper skin care routine to achieve.
